What's the "Current Streak"?

I just noticed it today, could anyone enlighten me?

You get a streak when you practise a couple of days in a row. It is a way to motivate you to practise every day and to make your streak longer and longer.

Is this another limited update? I haven't seen it.

I see it clicking on your profile. That fire ball will 66 beside it.

I still can't see it. I guess I'll get it later.

You're right. Sorry for doubting you, I thought you were joking because it doesn't show up in my display. (and I still think the idea of a fireball is funny, even if it's real)

Thank you.

Apparently there is a fireball, but I'm not able to see it. Your daily e-mail reminder will tell you when you are on a streak. It will tell you the amount of days, points earned, sentences translated and words strengthened during the current streak.

Oh my, now I want to turn on this notification. I don't need any reminders to study, but this information you mention seems interesting.

The fireball just appeared yesterday around noon, it replaced the number of translated sentences below the level progress bar.

I guess this fireball appeared for some users recently instead of translation count: http://duolingo.com/#/comment/354381
