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

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, 04th January 2015, is two thousand and forty-eight days later.
Today, 17th November 2014, is two thousand days later.
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:

2048 consecutive days on SO
2000 consecutive days on SO 1000 consecutive days on SO

Because, for me, it was worth every single day, as I explained in this post (two+ years ago).

Thank you (again), Stack Overflow and Stack Exchange team!

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 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 and 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
3 delete votes one this? They're either jealous or they want everyone to get out more! :) – Mysticial Nov 17 '14 at 19:54
@Mysticial yes, "reopen" votes would be appreciated ;) – VonC Nov 17 '14 at 19:56

Ah, finally we can take a day off!

1000 days, 1000 consecutive

As promised:


And I made it to 2000.

2000 days, 2000 consecutive

What the heck, since I have a picture with my fancy hat and tie, I might as well keep posting these. Happy birthday to BoltClock!

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
I believe this makes you a guru.... ;-) Is the streak still happening? – rolfl Oct 30 '14 at 23:49
@rolfl Yes, definitely! Looks like we're due for an update soon. – Bill the Lizard Oct 31 '14 at 1:32
Apparently you have not taken a day off, as the first line of your post implied you might.... ;-) – Shokhet Nov 17 '14 at 5:25
Hey Bill! Glad you made it this far. I have updated the "question". Still 48 days before the big 0x800! ( – VonC Nov 17 '14 at 19:54
I feel a bit better about my 1530 consecutive days on Meta now. But only a little, since it's Meta. – Tim Stone Nov 17 '14 at 20:35
@BoltClock'saUnicorn Happy 23rd anniversary! (and Happy New Year) – VonC Jan 4 '15 at 22:20
Yeah, happy birthday @BoltClock'saUnicorn! – Bill the Lizard Jan 5 '15 at 2:52
