Also worth a look:

"If you have any questions about this data distribution, we have created a #daylightdistro_feedback Slack channel in OSM US. Members of the team will be there periodically to answer questions. You can also email the team at"

If emailing doesn't work perhaps ask again (response to that address hasn't always been immediate) ask again and someone might be able to rattle their cage.

"OSM Daylight" is an offering from Facebook, created from OSM data by their staff according to their algorithms and decisions. If and when a change you make to OSM shows up on "OSM Daylight" is outside of OSM's (and outside of your) control.

The update schedule of any of the renderings of OSM are set by the people rendering them. The default rendering on is updated unusually frequently, often in minuets, so that people doing the mapping can see how their edits have changed things. Other renderings are usually every couple weeks or months, depending on the goals and resources of the people who are rendering them. I can't answer specifically for the daylight map, but you may be able to find more information from the website of the group doing the rendering.
