Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

I think there was an old UserVoice issue on this, but I'm still seeing some weird behavior. I've gotten used to it, but it is still annoying.

If you click on the Recent Activity link, the summary shown is not always correct. Sometimes it is missing some activity. You can see this if you click on the Today link. As often as not, for me anyway, more reputation shows up in the calculation even though the time range displayed at the top of the page does not change (except for the current time).

This is pretty annoying indeed. It shows "Showing 2009-08-25 to 2009-08-25 ; current time is 2009-08-25 22:52:12 UTC" by default and after clicking on Today, but the Today version is showing a lot more. –  deceze Aug 25 '09 at 22:56

I believe the summary shown is "today since server midnight." When you click on "Today" it will display "today since UTC midnight."

In other words, I believe it misses the first 7 or 8 hours of the day (I think the servers are on PST/PDT).

And yes, I think that's a bug.

Beat me to it, Jon. –  TheTXI Jul 22 '09 at 13:57
    
That is actually the most concise and clear explanation of it I have seen so far. –  TheTXI Jul 22 '09 at 13:58
    
For me it happens at 6pm. –  Brad Gilbert Jul 22 '09 at 14:12
    
@Brad: What do you mean by "happens at 6pm"? @TheTXI: That's probably what I get for having to describe time zone issues to users and colleagues :) –  Jon Skeet Jul 22 '09 at 14:18
