Loss of streak?
Woot. Logged in today, knowing that I'd taken a hit yesterday for not logging in (thank goodness for streak freeze!), but discovered that my streak has been reset to 0, and the streak freeze has also been used. Anyone else having this? The last time I emailed Duolingo it never got replied to, so I'm not holding my breath and thought I'd try the other users :)
I lose my streak every now and then, today for example I lost a 190 day streak. I have sent e-mails about it multiple times, clearly pointing out flaws in their system, but I did never get any response. Their support team is too busy, sure, but then hire more people or something. It is a major setback in motivation to lose a large streak.
I ran into a similar issue today, dealing with my streak. I had a streak of ten days going, and when I practiced today, I saw that my streak had been knocked down to 1 day. I didn't miss a day of practicing, and was confused and frustrated. Still am, actually. The only thing I could think of was that Duolingo is altering the streak system by only extending a streak if you reach your daily goal (Just a personal theory). Mine is 20 a day at the moment, but yesterday, I only had time for one lesson, so I earned 10 instead of my usual twenty.
I suppose it could be argued that streaks can be easily built back up, but it's still frustrating seeing your hard work crash down like a Lego tower. Regardless, I hope one, if not both of us gets some answers!
I was in the room with my husband yesterday when he made his goal, yesterday afternoon when he was using his phone to practice and last night when we both were practicing during the Buc v Steelers game and he woke up this morning and had lost his streak. Very disappointed - not as a status thing but as a way to monitor activity. There should be a way to fix this without paying. I'm bummed for him.
