Just lost a 570 day streak :(

I was in London last night and to get home I was gonna take a train from Euston Station. Our train was delayed for about half an hour and then the whole train was evacuated due to a possible terrorist attack (turned out someone's ecig just exploded in their bag), meaning I had to take a 4-hour cab home. My phone was on 8% battery and I didn't have a streak freeze. Got home after midnight. FML

RIP 570 DAYS :((((

Sorry you lost your streak. It does show that it's available for Streak Repair (on Android / iOS), if it's worth the cash to you.

I have my site goal set to 1 XP and a personal goal of 280 XP per week. That way, if I'm down to the wire, I can finish a Timed Practice lesson in under a minute by answering one question correctly and then letting the timer run down.

I am very sorry. Try to repair it if you can, but if not do not worry, it is only a number.

That's very ironic, considering your streak. XDDDDD

Me: reads the comment.

Me: sees the streak number.

Me: Uh...yeah, don't worry, it's just a number....................

What I mean is that if you have done everything you can to keep your streak and you lost it, do not get discouraged. My goal is not the streak, it is to learn German.

I've had that happen too with a similar streak of about 687. I did it to myself by setting the daily goal at 50 and not understanding that it became a mandate at that point. Whoops!

No streak freeze !!! Why? How much did you pay for a 4-hour cab home (just curious). Sorry for your lost streak, I am sure you'll survive. : D

It was £470, luckily we could cover it with my dad's company credit card as I was with him and we went to London for work! Could have been a serious problem lol

Sorry to hear that Xanpiir. I was evacuated from a DC train station a few months ago, so your story reminded me of that.

Congrats though on your level 25 and your 570 days! Hopefully you don't give up, get a streak freeze, and continue with your language journey. :-)

Terrible about your streak loss.. What a draining way to spend your night. I am curious though. How much does a 4 hour cab ride cost???! .*** Oh now I see you regained your streak info. You're back in business! Congrats!
