My SO Consecutive Days has been reset to 1
How did this happen. Just yesterday i had 73 consecutive visits, and now I got 1. What timezone are you using?
My participation just dropped by a 98%.
Everything resets at 0 GMT. You'll need to visit once per GMT day.
For instance, visiting at 8pm EST and then again at 8am EST the next day will not count as both days, as they both occur on the same GMT day.
On the other hand, visiting at 8am EST in the morning, and then 8pm EST in the evening on the same day will count as two separate days. So you can, in fact, get the fanatic badge visiting every other 'day'.
But yeah, in general time zone problems can cause this. If it's really very disappointing, email team at stack overflow and plead your case. You may or may not receive sympathy, but it's pretty much your only option at this point.
