"Visited .. days in a row" counter busted

If you have found a bug, or have a suggestion/comment then leave it here

On the user profiles there is this counter that says how many days you were online consecutively (also badges depend on this).

Since recently, the counter only goes up to 1 and then resets. I believe this behaviour started when we moved to the new database, up until then everything was fine.
This is of course only mildly annoying and does not need immediate action.

I was wondering about this too. There was a site update about 20 days ago and my counter reset. This morning it reset again. In all, I've logged every day for about a month and a half (about 40 days), but the counter shows zero (0).

@Eisenhans & @Neller, did anyone get any feedback from @Tom or @Ashley regarding this issue?

@frn2000 Not yet, but since it is documented now, I'm sure it will be fixed sooner or later. These guys are typically quite busy and there are issues that are a bit more pressing.

Are you guys sure? I have 17 days in a row. Assuming the counter is set to register a day if a user is logged in during a specific period and not 24 hours from the last login, and if you're in a weird time-zone, where it registers this at, say, 4pm your time, it would be easy to log in at 3pm one day, and then 5pm the next, and you would essentially lose your consecutive days.

Just sayin'. :) I have no idea what method they've used to count days, but theoretically this could happen.

This came up in this thread recently. I have still been logging on and visiting every day since I made that thread but lost my streak multiple times :( The only things I can recall doing or suspect is Arcade or the new Shop, but I haven't been able to trigger it.
I should have reported this sooner into this section of the forums :P

Trust me, I know how this works ;) Before the change that introduced the error I was at 530.

Looks resolved to me.


Nope, false positive, it's still there.
