Memrise – good news and bad news

Saturday, December 14th, 2019

Memrise…. I’ve posted several times about it already.

The good news is, I crossed the 60 million points line. It’s just a number but still… quite a high number and I’ve been adding at least 1 million points per month for at least the last 24 months. Sometimes something as simple as perseverance can result in progress.

The bad news is on December 7th 2019 I lost *all* my streaks, probably due to a bug. I did the daily points required to keep the streaks alive on all 14 or 15 courses I’m doing at the moment, so imagine my shock when I wake up and my precious 1394 days streak is gone. Since the streaks of all course were reset that cannot possibly have been my mistake. Contacting support was useless (there was a reply but it was not helpful).

To add insult to injury, in the latest version Memrise I get stupid notifications like “Keep your awesome streak alive” but the highest streaks I have since the incident is 8. Go figure if I’m happy or not. Since I believe in voting with my money, I will not pay for the full subscription anymore.
