Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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

Possible Duplicates:
Why did my consecutive days disappear?
Shouldn’t consecutive days measure from midnight to midnight in the user’s time zone?

I was on Stack Overflow around 5 p.m. on last Friday, then got back on around 9 p.m. Saturday. I was sad to see my consecutive days went back to 1. I was on for each day, but technically there was a 24 hour period that I was not on. So I was wondering if this is the correct way that it counts consecutive days (as 24 hours) or if it was a mistake?

I just realized I could check your profile for your timezone; you're listed as US Eastern, so yes, you missed an "SO day" (equivalent to a UTC day) in there. – Pops Jul 26 '10 at 19:24
