Ok so I'm new on the SO network and I'm trying to be helpful answering questions when I can. I've logged in faithfully every day for over 2 weeks now, but every time 12 o'clock sunday morning rolls around it seems I lose my consecutive day count.

What gives? I wanna earn my fanatic badge :) I feel I'm already pretty fanatical about this site, see how worked up I get about a badge :D

    If you click the consecutive days line in your profile you can see which days are missing. Are you factoring in your time zone? The Stack Overflow day ends at midnight UTC, not midnight local time Feb 6, 2011 at 9:19

Our day is in UTC.

Therefore, to be "seen" on a site for a given day, you must perform some non-trivial action on a site between 00:00:00 UTC and 23:59:59 UTC on that day.
