How did I break my streak?

Monday, April 28, 2014

I’ve logged in every day for well over a month. I have the sparkpoints to show for it every single day.

I know it’s not a big deal. Although I really like to see those virtual trophies for fitness minutes, I’m not a streak leader or anything. Occasionally I do miss a day.

But this month I didn’t, so how is my streak now just 2 days? Three days ago I earned 96 sparkpoints. This is strange. Of course I logged in. The points are there.

Just for my general information, what did I forget to do? Any ideas?

    My streak once ended because I only spun the bonus wheel, but forgot to spin the initial wheel. That was very frustrating since I had over a hundred points for the day!

    Pretty sure the system isn't perfect. I thought I logged in everyday and spun the wheel, too but lost my streak. I don't care too much, but feel sorry for those who are going for long streaks. Glad to see you can report these errors and get 'credit' for retaining your streak.

    those acknowledgments and praise are important they will probably fix it

    That happened to me once. I had log in points every day but a broken streak. I reported the problem on the tech forum and they fixed my streak. Have you reported it?

    Computer hiccup? Cyber gremlins? Sparkie poltergeists?

    I hope you have been able to get the problem corrected!

    If you didn't spin the Spark wheel, it doesn't count you have having checked in. I know. I've broken my streak that way.

    IF you leave a question on the technical boards they will check what happened and correct where necessary. They are very good.
    I once lost my streak too I was amazed at how I felt. This journey really is important to me with all its parts-streaks included.

    That is frustrating. You can go to the tech question message board and get someone to help you. I sometimes have my fitness minutes delayed in being added.

    Sorry this happened..You are on a great streak. I like those trophies also.

    Sorry, I've broken and restarted so much in April it's more of a joke for me. I'll be blogging tomorrow to explain my absences. It is annoying to have a streak break when you didn't break it though.

    I think it is a system glitch. I posted to the Friend Feed about this happening to me when I had logged in every day to record my Nutrition and Physical Activity. Several folks confirmed that this happened to them also and they decided to be grateful for the tracking tools for food and exercise and not sweat the rest (pun intended, sorry).

    A few times I forgot to spin the wheel because I stayed up late, and logged in around midnight, and missed either the first (when I missed midnight) or the second day (when I spinned the wheel before midnight and thought I'm done with the spin).
    Annoying it is!

    Shoot, I've done that before! Hang in there and start a new streak!

    I sometimes forget to spin the wheel because its out of sight as I have my pages magnified. I get a reminder if I click on Sparkpoints as it will appear at the top of that page.
    Sorry your streak is broken! I really hated the change to that massive busy start page. Not everyone has a wide screen computer!!

    I've had something similar happen to me on streaks. Mine have been on other things besides logging in. I'm not sure what the answer is.

    Forgot to spin the wheel. Been there done that.

    This happened to me, too, and I also KNOW I didn't forget to log in. I've got the Spark points for the appropriate day, too.

    Logically, if this has happened to more than one person, then there's a glitch with the Sparkpeople site.

    I would be upset if this happen to me!
    Either something is wrong with the Sparkpeople site or you forgot to log in.
    Sorry this happen to you!
