Battery Low Project dB update fail
I think this is the correct thread, but its the first post of the year; yeah, sure, the year has just started...

I have a project dB, which i have just updated (ie the OP with a new version). Updating Project dB's has been flakey for a while, but I can work around it by simply re-opening the project in another window, and manually checking it has updated. Normally, I get a page such as this after pressing either of the two save options.

NB: I have tried saving it twice with the second one being a change in formatting to ensure it triggered a save.

However, when I look at the OP, it shows it being last updated by some other random user (ie not me), with some way historical date (ie not now)

Are you implying that the update was some mod edit / "adjustment" / correction? if so, I would of expected some kind of notification of the reason for the edit. ie what he felt needed to be "corrected", that I had done wrong / broken some XDA rule.

Also, I have done multiple updates of that devdb since the date shown, and I do not remember it showing that info. ie not me.

I actually found I could see what changes were made by the edit. And the edit would appear to only be changes I had made when releasing a new version (ie version number, file download location, date etc etc), but is definitely not the last edit. Especially since I have just edited it yesterday.

And, the edit jumps (as well as a few other minor edits such as MD5 and download URL etc etc)
- Current Stable Version: 1.0.36
- Stable Release Date: 2019-03-31

+ Current Stable Version: 1.0.55
+ Stable Release Date: 2019-12-10

And ALL my updates would of been by single increments to the version number, so it does not make any sense that it jumps 19 versions in a single edit let alone the date jump. and lets not forget, I edited it yesterday (and these changes are visible in the OP) but the last edited still shows the wrong values for date and user.

I'm not familiar with DevDB and it's functionalities. Maybe @bitpushr @malybru or @MikeChannon have an explanation?

Well I'm an Admin but not expert on DevdB functionality either. DevdB is not as updated as it might be and is and is more in bitpushr's domain than mine. He's our chief systems person.
When bitpushr changes something he normally doesn't do so in order to act as a Moderator but more usually to correct some systems issue or something not showing correctly. Other times he's maybe just testing something, perhaps following a user saying something in the post/thread isn't working correctly.
