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

I'm facing a problem with my loggin consecutive count. Today, it was reset back to 1. I've never missed a day since March 21. Please check and let me know. Thanks so much.

This is my Calender in SO.

Are you sure you visited the site logged in with your account on the 8th and 9th? – Raghav Sood Apr 10 '13 at 13:31
Yes I'm. Everyday, I logged in with SO and META. I usually switch between them. – Khanh Tran Apr 10 '13 at 13:32
The days tracked are UTC days. What time zone are you in? If you log in at 9AM Tuesday and then noon on Wednesday, that's once a day for two days, but there's more than 24 hours (an entire day) between. If a UTC day happens to fall in there, you've missed it. – yoozer8 Apr 10 '13 at 13:35
Where are you located? Keep in mind that SO/SE uses UTC time. Might differing time zones have caused you to miss days? – Bart Apr 10 '13 at 13:36
@RaghavSood I have added a calendar in SO, please check. Thanks. – Khanh Tran Apr 10 '13 at 13:36
Additionally, simply loading the home page doesn't count as a visit; you need to actually visit a few pages. Are you sure you did that every day? – yoozer8 Apr 10 '13 at 13:36
My timezone is: (UTC-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada) – Khanh Tran Apr 10 '13 at 13:37
Thanks everyone, the reason may be missing action in META on the 8th and 9th. But I didn't know about that until today. It should be included in a guide for SO and META. +1 for everyone. Thanks so much. – Khanh Tran Apr 10 '13 at 13:45

One of the reason from a reply on similar question

It is easy to visit Stack Overflow every day and still "miss a day." Stack Overflow's days starts at midnight (UTC, over in London somewhere ). So a "Stack Overflow day" starts at (for example) 8pm Eastern Time.

Another reason(again answered here) can be:

No access to internal pages (login pages, along with a number of other homepage style pages, don't count as "access").

It's reasonable. But I didn't know about that until today. May be it should be included in guide for both SO and META. Thanks @hjpotter92 – Khanh Tran Apr 10 '13 at 13:42

On meta for those days you only visited the home page, and took no other action. The home page explicitly does not count as activity for a day.

Visit a question, voting, commenting...anything but visiting the home page counts as activity for a day.
