Streak count only includes successfully completing a lesson

I know this is on purpose, but I think this should be made more clear. I lost my 20+ streak because I thought I had already been on DuoLingo today-- I made a few attempts at a lesson and translated some words in Immersion. Apparently that's not good enough, but I had no idea.

Your streak does extend for translating sentences in Immersion. However, the reason you lost your streak is because this is the activity we have listed for you:

  • 2013-10-17 15:44:57 · pt lesson
  • 2013-10-17 05:47:20 · pt translation
  • 2013-10-17 05:44:44 · pt wiki_sentence_translation_rating
  • 2013-10-15 22:10:00 · pt lesson
  • 2013-10-15 21:25:14 · pt unlock
  • 2013-10-15 21:25:14 · pt lesson

Your streak midnight is shifted -4:00 for your timezone, but there were still no points earned on 10/16 (translations included).

ah, cool! is it possible for me to view that same breakdown of all my activity somewhere?

i also still think it should be made more clear that failing a lesson does not continue your streak-- though im not sure how to best present that information to the user

There isn't one at the moment, though this may be useful for you to be able to see. Also we probably should make it clearer that you must earn points to extend your streak - thanks for the suggestions!

Try doing timed practice. Even if you answer one question correctly, you will score a point.
