Is there a minimum level of activity required to get the “Enthusiast” badge?
Consecutive days problem #97?

I'm on my way to getting the Fanatic badge (currently at 87 days) and I'm a little worried that I may miss a day somewhere and get reset.

A while back I was sitting on about 55-60 days and even though I had navigated to Stackoverflow on my iPhone over the weekend, the counter seemed to have reset. This was pretty disappointing at the time, so I've been sure to browse through at least 3-5 pages each day to be certain that a visit is counted.

On the weekends I don't have access to a PC so I do this via iPhone.

So the question is: what do I need to do to ensure a visit is counted for that day? Is it as simple as loading the homepage while logged in and I just got unlucky somehow or is there something different that triggers this?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • I believe you have to visit a real page, i.e., not the homepage (and maybe your profile?). Logging in isn't enough IIRC. This is a dupe but I'm not sure where the older question is :P – Matthew Read Nov 29 '11 at 22:29
  • @MatthewRead Cheers, I had a quick flick through the similar questions dialogue but couldn't see anything so I gave it a go anyways. – Marty Nov 29 '11 at 22:30
  • The one I was thinking of with the actual answer (thanks @ChrisF): Consecutive days problem #97? – Matthew Read Nov 29 '11 at 22:33
  • Those answer my question. I'd close mine but I don't have enough rep - thanks. – Marty Nov 29 '11 at 22:35
  • Just visiting is OK. But SO defines a day using UTC, and not your local time zone. – CodesInChaos Nov 29 '11 at 22:47
