How did I lose my over 1 year playing streak?! I play every morning and today I see I am at 2 days.

Did you meet your coach target?

Of course.

Nope. I play at the same time every morning.

Check your coach chart. It might show a day you didn't practice.

Edit to add:

It is clear that you lost your streak on the thursday because you only earned 4 xp.

To see the proof, use your browser console and enter this:

var calendar = duo.user.attributes.calendar; var sCalendarStats ="Timezone: " + duo.user.attributes.timezone; for (i=0;i < calendar.length;i++){ sCalendarStats +="\nPoints:"+calendar[i].improvement + "; Date:"+ new Date(calendar[i].datetime); } alert(sCalendarStats);

If it is any consolation, according to the API (code), your spanish streak is still active, 371 days (based on days you earned points in Duolingo). However, Duolingo doesn't show this to users using the interface.

I knew I didn't want that stupid coach thing active. How could I only earn 4 xp? Did I have a few really bad rounds?

I have no clue how to get to what you are speaking of.

Thank you for your explanation.

Go to this link (https://www.duolingo.com/users/vicki.kura). It will show you your es (spanish streak) : 372 streak on the very first line.

Or you can try looking at youtube .

Then use this script by Pressing Ctrl + Shift + C , then pasting this in the console in Google chrome:

var tLangStreak =duo.user.attributes.languages; var sStreak = ""; for (var lang in tLangStreak) { if (tLangStreak[lang].learning){ sStreak += "\n"+tLangStreak[lang].language_string+':'+tLangStreak[lang].streak +" streak" } } alert(sStreak)

It is always possible some glitch caused the problem, considering that quite a few people have been complaining about lost streaks lately.

Thank you. That is interesting. I'm wondering if it was the day that I had started a game the day before and had to stop, left my browser open, finished it the next morning, then did a few more rounds. It's the only thing I can think of that I did different last week.

Now, how do I get to the section that showed my 371 days that you spoke of? Or is that on the above link? I could not make heads or tails of that plus my safety programs were blocking a lot of it.
