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
