All the times seem to be in GMT. Is there a time zone setting so they will show up in my time zone?
Also will this affect the "consecutive day" badge calculations?

My original comment:
User-specific time zone settings have been requested and declined: Make recent activity “today” etc. buttons based on user's time zone, Make times on the site in user's local time zone; see also When does a day start? and What Time Zone do the SO servers operate in? (and dozens of others)
Your comment makes no sense to me. There is a time zone setting: it's UTC for everyone. That's where the very definition of "day" for consecutive day calculations comes from, so how could it not affect the calculations?
I think a great deal of the issues that people with this could be addressed with some additional/better labels on the profile screens.
Maybe not right by the profile image/score, but maybe when you click on the Username to see profile, then click on Reputation, and see the graph.
Maybe an extra note here for emphasis, something like:
"Note that profile 'days' for points go from midnight to midnight UTC (-a- to -b- your time)"
with -a- and -b- coming from the client if possible?
