Please have a look at this pic

I am 100% sure that there were no consecutive 24 hours, that I have not visited my stackoverflow. But, the consecutive days count just skipped a day. My last two logins are around:

21st March 11.30 PM PDT

22nd March 10.00 PM PDT

How can it possibly happen?

Our web logs show that you did access Stack Overflow on March 22 three times, but all three hits were to the home page.

Unfortunately, the home page doesn't count, as we require some minimum activity elsewhere on the site to qualify for "site access", such as a Question/Show page or a Question/List page.

I'll grant you that missed day, though, just this once, so you'd better be more active in the future :)

  • Ahhh, that's why mine count. My browser lands on /questions by default. So even if I don't actually look at anything, it still counts.

    Just visiting your user profile page also does the job.

    I just read questions and try to answer them if possible. That seems to have been working quite well so far.
