I'm trying hard to get the Fanatic badge. Today I've noticed that my "consecutive days visited" counter decreased and it's 26 currently, however I'm sure that 7-8 days ago the value was 60 something. Can someone look at the logs? If nothing is wrong why I've been shown a wrong counter for so many days?


This is something you'll have to contact the Stack Exchange team about; even the moderators quite rightly don't have access to to that level of detail about a user's activities.

  • Thanks Philip, but what about let's say this question that was answered by SE Community Manager? I thought the bug tag will attract their attention. – gdrt Aug 17 '17 at 22:04

    The Stack Exchange world was a lot smaller in 2013 :-) If the community managers and/or developers do see this question then great, but if not then the contact form is the next place to take it if you're still concerned about the issue. – Philip Kendall Aug 17 '17 at 22:15
  • Thanks a lot then, I'll contact them through contact form. – gdrt Aug 17 '17 at 22:28
  • @gdrt We do come by and look at things, I promise! But I can't promise that we'll see every post immediately. (Also, you're more likely to attract devs than CMs with the [bug] tag. And then, if it's not an actual code-related bug, probably get no response from them.) Looks like this specific case got answered via e-mail, at any rate. – Pops Aug 22 '17 at 15:25
  • Thanks @Pops, they have already answered my question and I posted it here. – gdrt Aug 22 '17 at 15:59

I followed @Philip Kendall's advice and contacted the Stack Exchange team through contact form. Here is the response:


It's possible that the day you missed never updated the consecutive count correctly in your profile and that it was recently corrected (it is stored as a simple number in a denormalized field in the database). However, your current status is accurate. There was no activity logged for July 22nd and the day was not counted. It's not possible for activity to be subsequently deleted after it had been recorded.
