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 think I've been visiting the site continuously for the required amount of time to receive the Fanatic badge, but I haven't received it yet. How do I find out how long I have left to go?

Oh, my SO account is here if required: – Finglas Feb 25 '10 at 19:09
Counting the log it appears to be 92 days, I had some rouge day in early November. How I survived a day without SO I don't know. Anyway, thanks for the advice. – Finglas Feb 25 '10 at 19:58
> had some rouge day in early November. How I survived a day without SO I don't know. You probably did log into SO on that day, but because the site is set to GMT, you did not log in that day in SO’s opinion even though to you, you did. :-| – Synetech Jan 5 '12 at 18:38

So flag as require moderator attention and explain/link to this question? Are you sure about this? – Finglas Feb 25 '10 at 19:19
Yea. An SO mod can check your activity. (I can only check it on Meta) – Tom Ritter Feb 25 '10 at 19:19
Cheers guys, will do. – Finglas Feb 25 '10 at 19:20
You don't even have to flag this post, just a post you've made. – George Stocker Feb 25 '10 at 19:20
Is this the official recommended way of contacting a moderator? O_o – Pëkka Feb 25 '10 at 19:51
Don't thy have better things to do? This seems like a much better thing to have set up as a simple setting/calculation in your profile. Every time the job runs to try to calculate it it could update your entry. – tim Feb 25 '10 at 20:19
@tim, vote this: – juan Feb 25 '10 at 20:25
