I have been noticing that the consecutive login marker in the user profile is not working right.

This marker can be found in the visits status section on the visited line.

I logged in everyday since I registered and it still states that I am never consecutively logging in. I have checked and rechecked if its something I am not doing right, but I have even counted when I login and it should report a lot more consecutive days then it does.

Can anyone please check on this subject and see if I am doing something wrong? It's pointless to have a marker if it doesn't work right.

    Be aware that its not local time but UTC time (very similar to GMT time) – Richard Tingle Nov 4 '13 at 10:45
  • @RichardTingle AAAh, that right, it should be stated somewhere, because the marker is not accurate if it counts on only one time set. Thanks, that should be the problem! – gespinha Nov 4 '13 at 10:46

    Just logging in is not enough, you need to be 'active'. What 'active' means is explicitly not public. – Martijn Pieters Nov 4 '13 at 10:46
  • @MartijnPieters What do you mean by "not public"? To participate? – gespinha Nov 4 '13 at 10:47

    @GEspinha: As in: the details of what is counted as an active visit are kept secret by Stack Exchange on purpose. We do not know what exactly is counted as a visit for the consecutive days counter. – Martijn Pieters Nov 4 '13 at 10:48
  • ok, I understand. Thanks btw ;) – gespinha Nov 4 '13 at 10:49

    Provided you visit several pages (i.e. a question as well as the homepage) and vote / comment / leave an answer etc, then that's pretty active so would count as an active visit. – JonW Nov 4 '13 at 10:50

    I just visit my profile page and make sure the consecutive days counter increments by one. Then I know it counts my visit. I usually have to refresh my profile page once for it to count it. – Joshua Dwire Nov 4 '13 at 11:16
