Annoyed with streaks

Twice now my streak just ended. Once when there was the fall time change and now poof gone today despite the fact that I did even more than my daily goal yesterday. 90 something (this time) days just gone. Not much point of a goal if this happens. Disappointed.

maybe you should edit this and put it in the trouble shooting?

Yep give that a try - They may give you back your streak if that is so. Worth a try anyway.

Hmm ... yes this seems to have happened to me too a few days back. Just as well I had a streak freeze or I too would have been starting from nothing again. I don't know why it happens. A glitch, I guess.

Better get a streak freeze in future - it costs 10 lingots, but in a case like this it saves the day!

Are you using an iPhone to do the exercises? A lot of people seem to have problems with the iPhone doing exercises in offline mode, and not updating the servers before the end of the day.

No, I'm using my laptop. I only use the phone app when I'm waiting someplace. It's not a huge deal, but it's annoying :)

How frustrating, happened to my friend as well.

It's worth having a streak freeze behind your ear in case anything happens; I've lost a streak a couple of times when I was particularly busy, but if you have one already "bought", this won't happen.

Good idea. I did more than my daily goal. It's a glitch, but I'll do that. Thanks

I don't think doing more than your goal rolls on to the next day (though well done) but you can buy a streak freeze for 10 lingots and it'll be only be used if you miss a day; this is a good time to buy it, as sometimes the hour change catches people out and they lose a long-running streak.
