What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I received my Yearling badge for Stack Overflow a couple of days ago, but according to the account page I have only been a member for 353 days (349 the day I earned it, I think).

How does Stack Exchange define a year?

Did you use SO with a cookie before registering for an account? – Pops Jul 27 '10 at 21:44
Now that I think about it, I originally registered with a different account and something funky happened which caused me to end up with two separate accounts. I contacted support upon noticing the problem (several months later) and they merged the two. Probably the source of the problem right there. – Nathan Taylor Jul 27 '10 at 22:09

This answer of yours was posted over a year ago (Jul 23 '09), so you've obviously been active that long. If Popular Demand is correct, this could be an answer your account inherited.
