I'm not sure that explains it. The "updated" tag is on some, but not all of past characters across several versions of Angband, on both the Competition Ladder and the regular Ladder. E.g., the current comp, shows Nick, Estie, and my first attempt as "updated". If you look at the list of my past characters on the regular ladder, there are dozens showing as updated.

Well, we can do you blood and love without the rhetoric, and we can do you blood and rhetoric without the love, and we can do you all three concurrent or consecutive. But we can't give you love and rhetoric without the blood. Blood is compulsory. They're all blood, you see.”
