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

This question already has an answer here:

I'm pretty sure I've visited Stack Overflow and Meta Stack Overflow every day before 4 PM PDT (midnight UTC) for the past 50 days. I can recall seeing it say (I believe) 35(?) consecutive days visited a few weeks back. Then, all of a sudden, the counter reset on both sites. That got me wondering:

Say you visit at 6:30 UTC, would not visiting until 6:35 UTC the next day reset the counter, or do you just need to visit once every UTC day?

UTC. And an actual action is required. – Bart Jul 27 '13 at 20:36
@Bart could you post that as an answer? – Cole Johnson Jul 27 '13 at 20:38
@Bart if you could define "action" also... – Cole Johnson Jul 27 '13 at 20:39
This answers the UTC question:… and this the action part:… – Bart Jul 27 '13 at 20:41

You have to visit every UTC day. And on this visit you have to access the page. Just logging in, is not enough. You have to visit pages not part of the "homepage style". So just scanning the new questions doesn't count as an action.
