Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Under "Your review stats" on the /review page, there is a column for daily stats. It doesn't seem to follow the standard 0:01 UTC to 0:00 UTC Stack Overflow day (and clear at 0:00 UTC). I had tried to see if it was a Midnight to Midnight EST or PST day, but I didn't find any conclusive evidence of that.

What span of time does this report follow?

Yes, I know this isn't something that's pressing, but I'm curious, darnitall. – jonsca Nov 15 '11 at 3:54
the day rolls in review, I may change it so it is consistent with the rest – waffles Nov 15 '11 at 3:59

At the moment it tracks the previous 24 hours ... I think it is a bit of a bug cause nowhere else on the site does this. Will port it to UTC start of day.

Did you ever actually port this? – animuson Jun 20 '12 at 8:45

The UTC day rolls over at exactly 7 PM Eastern Standard Time (EST), 6 PM Central Standard Time (CST), and 4 PM Pacific Standard Time (PST), all these time zones are in the US. Note: These times are not during Daylight Savings.

The Daily Review should be following the UTC clock, but it is probably not updating that split second due to caching, etc.

Yes, I know, but the Daily counter doesn't seem to roll over at that time. – jonsca Nov 15 '11 at 3:55
Ah, entirely possible! The table itself updates fairly instantaneously, though, even without a page refresh. – jonsca Nov 15 '11 at 3:58
The review clock is VERY off from UTC – Simon Sheehan Nov 15 '11 at 4:17
Commenting because relevant. That's funky. Is there a particular reason it doesn't just use the specific user's locale and reset at midnight? Or is it just simplicity/not implemented yet? – Wug Jul 20 '12 at 0:09
