Change the definiton of a “day” to be localized for users

I've just discovered I missed a day in my "consecutive days" count, because I logged in yesterday morning, and logged in today in the evening. Apparently, Stack Overflow runs on London time, so anyone logging in outside of London has the day boundary at a non-intuitive time.

Shouldn't the day-to-day tabulation be done relative to the user's timezone, not the server's?

    You would think, wouldn't you. But alas no... SOFU is all UTC. Commented Jun 30, 2010 at 3:01

    FWIW, I saved my consecutive days count once by taking advantage of the UTC accounting. I was going to be busy all day Saturday, so I logged in Friday night after 6 PM and next in early Sunday afternoon. Commented Jun 30, 2010 at 14:16
