Back in May, 27th 2009, the Stack Overflow team introduced a little counter to monitor the consecutive days you visited the site.
And 30 days later (June 26th 2009), the first "Enthusiast" badges were awarded.

Today, May, 27th 2019, is three thousand six hun... OK, it has been 10 years.
Ten years to the day.
Time does fly when you're having fun ;)

Today, 13th August 2017, is three thousand days later.
Today, 17th November 2014, is two thousand days later.
Today, 21st February 2012, is one thousand days later.

So I was just wondering if there was anyone else with that little value on his/her profile:

ten years!

Before:
1000, 2000 and 3000 consecutive days

Because, for me, it was (and still is) worth every single day.

Thank you (again), Stack Overflow and Stack Exchange team!

    Wow, look at that fancy freehand circle! It even has a drop shadow! That's nice. I like how your helpful flag count is 1,024 like that's supposed to be some kind of joke or something? – animuson Feb 21 '12 at 5:34

    @RebeccaChernoff: 5, impressive. Is Marc Gravel still part of that group, as discussed in the comments of meta.stackexchange.com/a/58415/6309 back in July 2010? – VonC Feb 21 '12 at 6:38

    @animuson well, the is meta and freehand circles are mandatory around here ;) Look at the comments of stackoverflow.com/a/2296043/6309 and superuser.com/a/38495/141 for more. And the flag count is my actual flag count (I need to raise it to 2048 now ;) ) – VonC Feb 21 '12 at 6:40
  • @VonC I took two short family holidays - I'm on 989. I cannot claim membership of the 1000/1000 gang. Jon is closer, at 998. – Marc Gravell Feb 21 '12 at 6:41

    Congrats VonC (and the other 4)! I'm only at my 452nd consecutive day since my surgery, out of over 720 total days visited :/ – BoltClock's a Unicorn Feb 21 '12 at 7:53

    Congrats. I was above 600 consecutive days once. Overall I think I only did not visit SO at 5 days out of 806. IMO more than 365 consecutive days deserve an extra badge :) – Felix Feb 21 '12 at 11:26

    Well, you might be the only one now. I got very busy on Saturday, and my streak finally ended. :( – Bill the Lizard May 14 '18 at 12:24

    @BilltheLizard darn it! I wanted to ping you for the upcoming 3333 day... – VonC May 14 '18 at 12:31

    @Magisch But it could be a "cleaner" 333 ;) – VonC Jul 12 '18 at 12:45

    When you reach 10000, I expect SE to invite you and make a podcast as they did with Jon Skeet's 1M rep. ;) – Shadow The Curly Braced Wizard Jul 12 '18 at 14:28

    @ShadowWizard well... that would be in Sunday, 12 October 2036. Stack Overflow will be 28 years old. And I would be 65 years old! I'll get to 10000 at my retirement party! – VonC Jul 12 '18 at 14:54

Ah, finally we can take a day off!

1000 days, 1000 consecutive


As promised:

1337


And I made it to 2000.

2000 days, 2000 consecutive


What the heck, since I have a picture with my fancy hat and tie, I might as well keep posting these. Happy birthday to BoltClock!

2048 consecutive days

3000! If it were baseball, that would surely get us into the Hall of Fame. ;)

3000 consecutive days

    @BoltClock'saUnicorn: darn it, I made my post 24 days too soon. I will update the picture in my question then. Next stop: 1337 consecutive days... – VonC Feb 21 '12 at 13:11

    @VonC Another 337 days? What the hell, that's less than a year. Count me in! – Bill the Lizard Feb 21 '12 at 13:16
  • @BilltheLizard almost forgot, but 1337 consecutive days was yesterday. Are you still there? – VonC Jan 24 '13 at 21:01
  • @VonC Yeah, I remembered to get a screen shot too. I wonder if the other 3 made it. :) – Bill the Lizard Jan 24 '13 at 21:09
  • @BilltheLizard great, see you at 2048 (but... that would be 4th of January... 2015! A Sunday though) – VonC Jan 24 '13 at 21:15
  • @VonC: Dammit, that's my 23rd birthday. – BoltClock's a Unicorn Jan 25 '13 at 3:25

    I believe this makes you a guru.... ;-) Is the streak still happening? – rolfl Oct 30 '14 at 23:49

    Apparently you have not taken a day off, as the first line of your post implied you might.... ;-) – Shokhet Nov 17 '14 at 5:25

    Hey Bill! Glad you made it this far. I have updated the "question". Still 48 days before the big 0x800! (numbermonk.com/hexadecimal/2048) – VonC Nov 17 '14 at 19:54

    I feel a bit better about my 1530 consecutive days on Meta now. But only a little, since it's Meta. – Tim Stone Nov 17 '14 at 20:35
  • 2
    And... that is now 3000 days! Still with me? – VonC Aug 13 '17 at 17:55

    @VonC Yes, I'm still here. Thanks for reminding me. I wouldn't want to miss getting a screenshot of a big milestone. :) – Bill the Lizard Aug 13 '17 at 18:42
