This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

It shows 2013-01-14 20:18:25. So it is about 23 hours. – Szilágyi Donát Jan 15 '13 at 18:28
No, 24 actually, all times are UTC times. – Martijn Pieters Jan 15 '13 at 18:30

You need to do more than log in to count as a 'visit'. Merely joining doesn't count as activity for that counter.

Quoting from Consecutive days problem #97?:

We see a login on 10-2 but no access to internal pages (login pages, along with a number of other homepage style pages, don't count as "access").

So, yesterday you logged in, but didn't do enough to increase the visits counter.

@SzilágyiDonát: There is nothing buggy about it; it's status-bydesign in fact. – Martijn Pieters Jan 15 '13 at 20:11
