However, the list doesn't get updated unless I

every time someone visits the page?
The rendered page, including the part generated by the extension, is
being cached; MediaWiki is designed for dynamically editting static
content, and serving it to large numbers of users, so dynamic content
inside ordinary pages is not really designed to work.
For a quick and dirty solution, see
If instead you just want to manually refresh it occasionally, you can
use the "&action=purge" URL parameter.
