Day 500 and it went to 460.

It seems like I was supposed to go to day 500 on my streak and it went to 460. How do I check it? I know I was getting excited about it and I wouldn't have been excited reaching 460 days.

Hi pentaan, 2017-02-07; but I didn't immediately start trying to keep my streak; but pretty soon after, and I lost a very short streak early on. So that would be 558 days between the day I started til yesterday.

Sorry that you unfairly lost 40 days of your streak. You should take a screen shot every day to prove that it is a bug.

Thanks Gotcgic4U0b9E6, I really don't pay that much attention, and don't really want to. It probably was a one-time thing; or, I am starting to loose my marbles. Both are equally likely. ;-)

According to your public extended user profile
https://www.duolingo.com/users/slamRN
you lost a streak of 12 days 476 days ago.

This is also visible in your onofficial progress page

Edit:
The days you used a streak freeze, don't count in your streak. So, that would explain the gap between 476 and 460 days.
Sorry, I cannot give a clear answer.

pentaan - I have used maybe 5 streak freezes. I never use them and maybe have used even less. I think it is great you looking into this. But as you probably can tell I am not upset about this, just curious.

Is there a way to tell how many streak freezes I have used?

I have looked for that possibility, but I did not find it.
Maybe user FieryCat can give an answer.

Hmm, I don't remember a FieryCat. Does FieryCat troll these discussions? We'll find out.
