Lost my 1310 day streak :'((
didn't notice I had used up my streak freeze. thought of DL at 23:58... was too panicky to think of looking if my streak freeze was active... ...and did not make it in time..
Cheer up! There are worst things in life than that. Just continue learning as if nothing happened.
A small thing I know, but yes it is annoying. When I lost mine I put my DL start date in my profile and it has been very therapeutic. Ciao.
Well, just the reminder email... but that probably won't change anything!
I was offered to pay something like $10 to get my 130ish day streak restored, on the android app.
I remember reading that Duolingo can bring back your streak if you pay for it, as some people got messages to do so. I'm not sure why you didn't get the same option as other people.
Sorry about your loss from 1,310. :-(
Until Duo makes a feature that shows all-time high streaks, you should write about your streak in your profile description.
How are you learning Japanese when it hasn't been released into Beta yet?
Congratulations for your 1091-day streak. My 700-day streak is just around the corner for me.
It is out on iPhones and Android devices. And thanks, congrats on your streak too
Don't worry, I'm pretty sure there'll be a day when I'll forget my daily practice as well and it'll be very frustrating to see my streak go, but after a few days you'll look back and be able to see the streak for what it is: a little number whose sole purpose is to keep you motivated to come back. If you're already motivated to come back, that number serves no purpose whatsoever.
I personally think one's language badges are far more impressive than streaks ;P (try noticing that the most knowledgeable users here rarely have the longest streaks, but rather have quite a few languages at considerably high levels).
Yeah, you're definitely right there. It was just such a shock to see the 1310 disappear and then there's just a 1! Still sad after all the effort, but life goes on, no matter what! ;)
sorry to hear that! What an amazingly long streak! I hope you can find the comments that explain how to restore your streak. I think it is possible through the app, but I forget the details.
I know how you feel. I lost my 179 day streak 3 days ago, and I was just too sad to continue.
But man, 1310? Sad...
Man, sorry to hear that. That's a long time! Good job on keeping it for so long anyway, though.
I hate day streaks. It's not useful I think. I always clicked reset for my Swedish course. I lost my points but I had to do this because I forgot the lessons.
