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.

This question pre-dates the quoted duplicate. "This question covers exactly the same content as earlier questions on this topic." The important word here is "earlier". Why wasn't the duplicate closed? – mR_fr0g Oct 1 '12 at 13:07

I find this particularly frustrating. My timezone is UTC+10, so if I visit the site in the morning, but the next day I only visit it in the evening, then a day goes missing from the statistics and thus the woot badge is not awarded - even though I visited the site each day (in my local day).

It's really a bit demoralising...

Since all of SO is in UTC (daily reputation caps etc.), I suspect Enthusiast/Woot badge makes no difference and it is using UTC as well.
