It may be a bug, or it may be a case of the actual time being less than the displayed time; the stats are often rounded, so when it displays “3 days,” it may actually be 70, or even 65 hours. Either way, congrats on the stat!

FWIW I got curious (and had a little bit of free time) so I worked out my actual time to be roughly ~63 hours:

So it’s almost certainly a case of the stat on our dashboards being rounded (at least for me, but if you’ve not got the badge I’d assume it’s the same for you). :slight_smile:

I thought read time is not rounded.

@notlyall how do you calculate your exact read time?

By the looks of it, the stat we have on the profile page is rounded, so even if it’s 3d doesn’t mean we necessarily meet the criteria for the badge.

I downloaded my activity from here:


Then ran a fairly simple formula (=SUM(start_cell:end_cell) / 60 / 60) on the time_read column on the visits sheet to sum it all up and convert to hours.

I dided realised that it includes read time. And I think we can ignore the day where I have 3 seconds of read time. :rofl:
