Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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

I was wondering if there was any way to find out the actual number for the highest ever consecutive days visited? I don't want to know who the user is that holds the record (I would hope that info would be kept private anyway), just what the record currently is.

If this is something that would require a dev to dig through log files then I don't want to waste your time, but if it would be a trivial task for a mod to find out then I would be very greatful if you could fulfill my curiosity!

Although, I wouldn't be surprised if it's John Skeet with DaysSinceStackOverflowInception - 1. – chown Aug 17 '12 at 3:17
and how this is going to useful ? – Lucifer Aug 17 '12 at 3:22
Not really useful, but I agree chown, it would be cool to see. I'd also like to see the "Go Outside" badge awarded for 1000 consecutive days. – 0x7fffffff Aug 17 '12 at 3:24
@chown: I believe Jon Skeet made a question here on meta when he reached 1000 consecutive days. However, the consecutive day information is only tracked from the day those badges were created, not from the day Stack Overflow was started. So the "record" may not be accurate. – animuson Aug 17 '12 at 3:30
@animuson I think this is the question you're talking about:…. Thats pretty crazy that someone has 1000+! – chown Aug 17 '12 at 3:48
@Lucifer Not useful at all, it's just discussion. I was curious so I figured I would ask. – chown Aug 17 '12 at 3:48
@NSPostWhenIdle +1 for the thought (Go Outside) ;) – Bhuvan Rikka 웃 Aug 17 '12 at 4:03
I imagine it's not hard to have 1000+ days if SE is your job. – Conner Aug 17 '12 at 4:42
@Conner We do sometimes take vacations. Some of them are even offline. :) – Adam Lear Aug 17 '12 at 5:14
But what if someone is wrong! – trashgod Aug 17 '12 at 5:22
Related: Anyone with a "visited: 1000 days, 1000 consecutive" in his/her profile?. Specifically, as of half a year ago, there were only five users who could claim that. Jon Skeet wasn't one of them; if I remember correctly, he missed a day due to having his computer stolen. – Pops Aug 17 '12 at 16:42
Sigh! Now I feel bad again for missing one day during christmas. 763 days to go... – Bo Persson Aug 17 '12 at 17:26
