What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 133 Stack Exchange communities.

Yesterday I visited Stack overflow - probably two or three times. Same thing with the day before (Saturday) and I know every day last week while at work.

This morning at 8am I see "visited 253 days, 1 consecutive"

I understand that Stack Overflow time zone is not my time zone. But I don't think there could be a 24 hour period where I have not visited this site in the last 7 days.

Notice 8-14 is missing.

Thanks Jeff. Well if you can use cron to get it, it's probably not a must-have badge anyway :-) –  Adam Eberbach Aug 16 '10 at 3:30
    
But I still have a nagging feeling that there is no way 24 hours passed during visits - definitely not 27 as that log shows. –  Adam Eberbach Aug 16 '10 at 3:35
    
@Adam It looks like you missed three days last month anyway, so it's not a big loss (you weren't at 99 consecutive days or anything) –  Michael Mrozek Aug 16 '10 at 13:33

I don't intend this to come across as mean, but every time this is asked it reminds me of the people that call IT departments and say "the computer says my password is wrong, but there's no way I forgot it", as though maybe the computer is mistaken. Usually it's by people in the west who sign in in the evening, which is the next day GMT time, but I'm guessing if you referred to yesterday as Sunday two hours before midnight GMT, you're probably east of the line, so that makes it somewhat more unusual.

A moderator can check the access logs to see if you missed a day or not, but maybe access logs should be accessible by that user, if this keeps coming up? It might be as simple as adding a line to http://stackoverflow.com/reputation to indicate if you visited the site at all that day

Usually I would agree with you, but the "consecutive" count is infamous for its weird behavior. Sometimes for example it's higher than the number of days you visited the website. So I'm skeptical. –  Andreas Bonini Aug 15 '10 at 23:50
    
Mean is fine and probably deserved if I'm wrong but I don't know how it could be working. I am in GMT +10 if it matters. –  Adam Eberbach Aug 16 '10 at 0:19
    
@Adam Well, I would expect the consecutive day code to be pretty trivial, but @Kop said it's been broken before, so maybe not. We'll have to wait for a diamond mod to check –  Michael Mrozek Aug 16 '10 at 0:28
