Progress report emails

I get a weekly progress report telling me how many XP I have earned, but it never reflects how many points I've actually earned! Last week it said I hadn't scored any points, but in fact I had earned over 200, and I'm on a 148 day streak. Why are these email reports so inaccurate?

Mine seem accurate - I just wish I could turn them OFF. It's of no value to me to know this information. I practice every day regardless - you can see by my streak that I don't need the added incentive. I'm not going to get caught on a treadmill of always trying to do better than last week. The time I already spend is enough.

I agree, I don't need the email reminder, it makes no difference to my study. It's just annoying. And the discrepancy between the email progress report and my actual XP score is just a bit baffling. thanks for replying anyway.

Possibly they are looking at the lingots you have scored for a particular language and not your overall XP score which is used for your streak.

Someone on Reddit had the idea that it might just show xp from new skills, rather than practising excising skills. This might have some truth to it, as it says I only got 30 xp last week, which is definitely not true, but I did spend a lot of time strengthening old skills last week.
