Just now I noticed one thing about the Visited Days in my Stack Overflow profile, I don't know whether this is the actual format implemented by Stack Overflow team or whether it's an issue.

Actually I have visited Stack Overflow for 367 days, what do you think? Should it be 367 days or 1 year 2 days? I think it should be same as above line of "Member for" section.

It makes sense to count the days individually, since they're discrete instances (i.e. individual visits). You didn't actually visit the site for an entire continuous year and two days. (Or did you? That'd mean you were staring at it 24/7 for a year...)

They're also probably that way to reflect their associated badges (Yearling: # years of membership; Enthusiast/Fanatic: # days visited).

You've visited it on 367 days. You have visited it on two years, 2010 and 2011. Saying 1 year wouldn't match either of those and the latter is so broad as to be useless. –  Matthew Read Sep 24 '11 at 16:40
