Are there differences in how the various Stack Exchange sites catalog what the timing means to be "consecutive"?
I've missed out on the Fanatic badge numerous times simply because I missed what appeared to be the 24 hour cutoff at GMT or whatever it is.
I looked at my Stack Overflow profile and it says 1 consecutive day, but what prompted me even to look was the fact that I received the Fanatic badge for programmers.stackexchange.com. I looked at my profile on Programmers, and it says 100 consecutive days. The truly odd thing is that I visit these sites together when I visit. First, Stack Overflow then Programmers.
How is it possible to visit both sites in an identical fashion and not have identical results?
Just as a small disclaimer, I'm not complaining that I didn't get the badge on Stack Overflow; I'm asking about the difference in behavior across both sites. To expand on the similarities, when I pull my browser up, the first thing I do is click on the logo to force a refresh of the page that way (just to make sure my browser hasn't brought up something cached).
Sometimes I click into a question, and sometimes I don't. I can guarantee that I have not clicked into a question on Programmers 100 days in a row any more than I have clicked into a question on Stack Overflow, so the act of clicking the logo to retrieve new questions must have been sufficient on Programmers.
