So I play the snapshots, because new stuff in Minecraft is cool. So for the past month or so I've been playing 14w11b. but shouldn't they be updating it every week or so? I know they worked on 1.7.6 and things like that, but shouldn't they have updated the snapshot again by now?

No, they don't have schedule for such things.

Either show us where Mojang promised you regular snapshots or close your topic.

Weekly snapshots are only a rule of thumb, it's not set in stone, we could get no snapshots at all for several weeks or Mojang could release one on a Friday or Tuesday, we never know...

Holidays, conventions, code rewrites and refactoring are all things that have delayed the snapshot releases as of late, there just isn't enough that has been added to warrant a snapshot release, or they are knee-deep in major refactoring projects and need to tie up all the loose ends.

Perhaps we will get a snapshot next Thursday but I wouldn't expect any major new additions even after all this time, these days the bulk of the work is taking place where we as players can't see or experience it except maybe in better game performance, fewer bugs and such.

The next snapshot, which could come out at any time, is probably going to be 1.8 pre. Enough 1.8 snapshots have passed by IMO to warrant it.
Don't worry; I'm sure you'll be fine. But eventually, everyone runs out of Time.

The only reason I am personally wishing they would hurry up with the next snapshot is the hope that there might be a fix for the now busted rail system. Other than that, It comes out when it comes out. Mojang has already supported Minecraft with free content WAAAAAY beyond any other game.
