Hi, my SO profile shows that I've visited for "32 consecutive" days -- which should be roughly right.

Yet I don't have the highly coveted, "Enthusiast" badge. Why not?

FANATIC. Now there's highly coveted. – bobobobo Jun 27 '10 at 10:58
Mine shows 397, where's my "get a life" badge? – tvanfosson Jun 27 '10 at 11:32
@tvanfosson - did I miss a day? I'm only on 396... seems unlikely that I'd miss exactly the day they started logging this.. bizarre. – Marc Gravell Jun 27 '10 at 22:12
@Marc - maybe that can be your first bug fix. – tvanfosson Jun 27 '10 at 23:03

My profile says 35 days consecutive. The thing is I know that its wrong and that if my calculations are correct I should either get the Enthusiast badge on day 36 or 37. Just be a bit patient and you will have it soon enough.

Thanks, I'm not crushed about missing the badge (well not much), but this is obviously a bug, as that related link shows. – Awesome Poodles Jun 27 '10 at 13:18
@Brock, Like I said, be patient and you will get your Enthusiast badge soon. I am on 36 consecutive days now and just got my badge. Woohoo!! :) – Pieter van Niekerk Jun 28 '10 at 5:20
So I will also wait a little bit in this case. Because I had similar problem like Brock Adams. – Bakhtiyor Jun 28 '10 at 8:31

There were a couple of bugs in these site visit counters - they've been ironed out now (hopefully :).

Thanks, Pieter van Niekerk, et al.

The answer seems to be that the consecutive days display is wrong and that the badge-award seems to run off a different calculation (in violation of DRY principles)?

So this might be 2 bugs for the price of one?

There are known issues with the consecutive day count as reported in the profile. Sit tight and it will be corrected, and you'll get the Enthusiast badge when it's really time.

I wonder if this is fixed now. For meta I earned the enthusiast badge 14 days ago and my profile says "44 consecutive". – Andy E Jun 28 '10 at 7:21
@Andy E's head, Nope it's not fixed. I'm at 33 days and no badge. – Awesome Poodles Jun 28 '10 at 10:49
@Brock Adams: weird how it's fine for some but not others. – Andy E Jun 28 '10 at 11:34
