What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

Back in May, 27th 2009, the Stack Overflow team introduced a little counter to monitor the consecutive days you visited the site.
And 30 days later (June 26th 2009), the first "Enthusiast" badges were awarded.

Today, 21st February 2012, is one thousand days later.

So I was just wondering if there was anyone else with that little value on his/her profile:

1000 consecutive days on SO

Because, for me, it was worth every single day, as I explain in this post.

Thank you, Stack Overflow and Stack Exchange team!

A bit late, but since Bill the Lizard is still game:

Wow, look at that fancy freehand circle! It even has a drop shadow! That's nice. I like how your helpful flag count is 1,024 like that's supposed to be some kind of joke or something? –  animuson Feb 21 '12 at 5:34
quite close: "visited 995 days, 937 consecutive" –  Nick Dandoulakis Feb 21 '12 at 6:04
...but no cigar –  Nick Dandoulakis Feb 21 '12 at 6:09
Awesome. There are 5 of you. (: –  Rebecca Chernoff Feb 21 '12 at 6:11
Well I'm at 913 days, 597 consecutive on Super User –  Sathya Feb 21 '12 at 6:27
@RebeccaChernoff: 5, impressive. Is Marc Gravel still part of that group, as discussed in the comments of meta.stackexchange.com/a/58415/6309 back in July 2010? –  VonC Feb 21 '12 at 6:38
@animuson well, the is meta and freehand circles are mandatory around here ;) Look at the comments of stackoverflow.com/a/2296043/6309 and superuser.com/a/38495/141 for more. And the flag count is my actual flag count (I need to raise it to 2048 now ;) ) –  VonC Feb 21 '12 at 6:40
@VonC I took two short family holidays - I'm on 989. I cannot claim membership of the 1000/1000 gang. Jon is closer, at 998. –  Marc Gravell Feb 21 '12 at 6:41
@MarcGravell: Guess I won't have the pleasure of your company in counselling, then (by the way, sorry for the incorrect spelling of your name in my previous comment). –  VonC Feb 21 '12 at 6:45
Congrats VonC (and the other 4)! I'm only at my 452nd consecutive day since my surgery, out of over 720 total days visited :/ –  BoltClock's a Unicorn Feb 21 '12 at 7:53
Congrats. I was above 600 consecutive days once. Overall I think I only did not visit SO at 5 days out of 806. IMO more than 365 consecutive days deserve an extra badge :) –  Felix Feb 21 '12 at 11:26
@RebeccaChernoff Hi, would you know is the club of 5 is still there? –  VonC Jan 25 '13 at 6:39
@VonC I can't answer that, perhaps an employee would be willing to query it for you. –  Rebecca Chernoff Jan 25 '13 at 17:45

Imagine your life as 33 yo without stackoverflow...scary! –  davidsleeps Feb 21 '12 at 11:51
Nope, you have 24 more to go. –  BoltClock's a Unicorn Feb 21 '12 at 12:07
@BoltClock'saUnicorn: darn it, I made my post 24 days too soon. I will update the picture in my question then. Next stop: 1337 consecutive days... –  VonC Feb 21 '12 at 13:11
@VonC Another 337 days? What the hell, that's less than a year. Count me in! –  Bill the Lizard Feb 21 '12 at 13:16
@BilltheLizard almost forgot, but 1337 consecutive days was yesterday. Are you still there? –  VonC Jan 24 '13 at 21:01
@VonC Yeah, I remembered to get a screen shot too. I wonder if the other 3 made it. :) –  Bill the Lizard Jan 24 '13 at 21:09
@BilltheLizard great, see you at 2048 (but... that would be 4th of January... 2015! A Sunday though) –  VonC Jan 24 '13 at 21:15
@VonC: Dammit, that's my 23rd birthday. –  BoltClock's a Unicorn Jan 25 '13 at 3:25
