Reason I ask, is it doesn't seem that Xenforo's Cron system is very reliable at times. I've got a user group promotion setup for users who associate their Steam account with their Forum account. A user cannot post in any threads or take part in any discussions unless they associate their Steam account.
As it stands currently, I have the "Run at" times setup below.
Run on type of day: Any
Run at hours: Any
Run at minutes: Any
Allow cron entry to run automatically when scheduled is enabled (checked)
The problem I'm seeing is Xenforo seems to run this Cron entry arbitrarily. If a new user was to sign up and associate their Steam account, they will have to wait 6 hours before the task is ran. Why is this? Why is it seemingly so inconsistent? Why is there no documentation as to what the "Run at" options pertain to? Is there no way to have the cron job run as soon as they associate their Steam account?
Help is always appreciated. Thanks!
