streak counter inconsistent

I used the streak freeze a few weeks ago when I was away for the weekend, and now my streak counter says 27 on my pc (what it should be) and only 10 on the mobile app and the email reminders I get. I just received a lingot for reaching 10 days, which is incorrect. I wanted to bring this to the attention of the developers.

Yes, i also used a streak freeze, and I'm not getting my lingots based on my current streak but the streak that's on my mobile phone. The mobile phone has 10 days which was when I used the streak freeze. And, my pc's streak is over 70. That's a big difference.

I hope this is a bug, because if it isn't, I would definitely put that in the fine print for the streak freezes.

One lingot vs 7 lingots every 10 days. :(

It seems like Duo has some streak and points awarding problems lately. Well, 10 milion users ain't easy to serve! I hope they will fix it anyway.

I didn't buy a streak freeze, only two 7-day-wagers in a row. However, when I got to 80 days, I didn't get my eight lingots. (I'm sure I got seven when I hit 70 days, though.)

I have a related problem also caused from a purchase in the lingot store. I chose the "double or nothing for maintaining a seven day streak". I already had a streak of 10 days and thought it would simply reward me when I hit 17 days. Instead it reset my streak to 1...ca craint!

Anyway, love the program but pretty bummed to lose that streak counter... it is so addictive.

I don't know of any way to let duolingo know about the problem other than posting here, and I haven't heard from anyone. Too bad they didn't test the feature thoroughly before releasing it.
