Does "The Author" badge recalculate using all found logs all the time?

If I go back to my earlier "shorter" logs and update them with more substantial logs will they affect the average length in the Stat's generation?

If not, is there a way to force a recalculation for this badge?

I would say yes, It user all found logs and recalculated when the stats are updated
The problem is not length calculation but detection of changes in your log on gc.com
The API on gc.com is not optimal for pgc usecase

Exactly. If you edit old logs they will eventually be taken into account but it may take a while. Normally the edit is seen the next time someone logs that cache. If the cache isn't logged (or is archived) we'll eventually see the change anyway, but then it takes a long time (I don't know exactly how long).
