Suggestion: Highest streak history
So after racking up a streak of over six months I unfortunately lost it over a vacation where I had very limited connectivity. What I'd like to see added is something like a "longest streak" or the like where it shows the best streak you ever obtained, regardless of whether you still have it or not - kind of like a personal streak high score. I think this would motivate people who lost their streak to get back on the bandwagon and try to beat their previous best. What do you think?
It would also be nice to see the total number of days you've used Duolingo for (days where you've actually done a lesson/practice, not just how long it's been since you joined).
Good idea, they could add achievements for total days of active Duolingo (a few lingots along the way wouldn't hurt). It would stack with the streak so it's all extra motivation.
It might be a little too much, but to know how many hours we spent learning a language, since the beginning, could also be great..!
I think this would be brilliant, even if it were something only the user could see, not something shared with others.
Yes, a highest streak count on our banner would be very motivating! Maybe the current flame icon could have a ratio displayed next to it. It could really inspire lower streakers to pass their previous count.
if there are other sorts of achievements too, there could be a little corner of personal statistics/"high scores" somewhere.
There must be all kinds of data in the system, I guess it is a question of how hard or time consuming it might be for the Duo team; I'd love as much information as possible, but a highest streak number would be a great start!
Very good idea! it enhances the motivation for serious users that have lost their streak without compensating on the regular rule of streak. Really excellent suggestion
it really is a great idea to motivate people to beat their high score kind of like a videogame or app
my streak is 5, i have never been ddoing something on the computer for this ong in my whole life so this feels pretty awesome
All of the stats help to motivate me, so I believe that more stats would equal more motivation! (My little streak is what got me online today to practice!)
A few months ago I have to travel to a week long meeting and I didn't have a connection and everyday I drove about ten miles down the road to study for an hour to keep my streak going. I love this program and have learned so much....thank you Duo Team.
How about that and other statistics for yourself and on other people's accounts too? Such as XP earned in the past year among other things
The same thing happened to me while on vacation. I agree, that is a great idea.
I am also motivated by seeing people with those loooong streaks. You may not recognize it, but those streaks give us newcomers something to shoot for.
Yes! This would be great! I have a high streak right now and I would feel awful if Ii lost it due to a power outage or something :(
im on a 18 day streak --- need to go away with my company working out in the field for 5 days in september------ ill lose streak so your idea is fantastic----please implement before sept 20th thank you
I'd love to see this. Just look at what the steak for motivating users to return!
Agree with that I would really like it if they'd bring back the words section - i'm halfway through my italian tree and I forgot A LOT of words that I learned.
