Streak count is incorrect and way higher than it is supposed to be!

I have been enjoying the streak count as a motivator for daily practise. I was at about 40-50 days and then suddenly it jumped up to 13350 days, or 36.5 years! It hasn't dropped down since... Only been in one course and one timezone so doesnt really make sense.

Has anyone had this problem and can I reset to the correct count? While it's not much I was enjoying tracking the progress.

Thanks!

Well you're not alone!
Up to now, the "record" I saw is a streak of 2 129 446 017 days, yes more than 5 834 098 years. ;)

Selmabanwarth broke his/her streak though... he/she only had 18 million days to go before it hit the 32-bit integer limit, and then we could have seen a negative streak... it's a shame... :D

I don't know why there's downvotes. This is really funny.

Kudos, sir.

Thankfully the Duome author added some data integrity checks.

maybe you should maintain your streak for 10 days and see if it pays out 1336 lingots?

Have you used the offline feature for Duolingo Plus recently? Another user who has had this problem said that he was using it and when he reconnected his streak went whacko. I also noticed that everyone who has had this problem in the past week has Plus, so I was wondering if it had something to do with that.

Delete your post right away and tell no one. Wait a few days and come back bragging about your streak like it is real and have some fun with it. Be sure to buy a streak freeze for this one,

Wow, this one you will really need to move to Troubleshooting, someone there may have more answers for you than here on the general topic.

Hi pjs182,

Could you relocate this discussion in the “Troubleshooting" forum? Which is the place meant for such discussion ("How Duo works?", "What is/How works this or that feature/thing?", etc.). Thx!

To relocate it (*), edit your original post then select said forum in the drop-down menu on top-left of the edition area (see here for details).

(*) /!\ please, don’t create a new discussion /!\

Have a look to this short guide to help you knowing where to post your (future) discussions on Duolingo’s forums.


I advise to report the issue to Duo => https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
