I have a map update question. How long do you have to wait in between your custom map updates for your newly updated map to be bumped back up to the front of the custom map list so that people are aware of your maps new update status? A week? A month?

I think it pushes out that the map has been updated to all subscribed users as an alert no matter how frequently it is updated.

As for the map list, it should also appear as the top no matter how frequently it is updated as long as the map list is set to be displayed chronologically. Do note that updates might not appear immediately depending on how the site work (some websites it can take a few hours before an updated is displayed).

Updating a map with the sole intent of "bumping" it will probably result in some kind of punishment from staff as it is kind of abusing a feature. Additionally too frequent updates (eg 5 times a day) generally points towards a flawed design/revision process.
