how many days to start a 'streak' on new web pages
The new eBird web pages indicate a 'streak' of consecutive days of birding. Among our several eBird accounts we have inactive accounts with 0 days of streaks and one account with a 29 day streak. But yet another account has a 0 days streak even though we had 4 consecutive days of birding with multiple observations each day.
So the real ? is how many days of consecutive eBird entries are necessary to begin a new 'streak'?
Always good birding,

my guess is: for the account with 4 consecutive days , the last of these 4 days must be not yesterday nor today. So after 24 hrs it went back to 0

This is happening to me too; I have a record of 3 days in a row, but none of my recent uploads are counting towards the streak

Menlo and Matt,
Aha, I believe that Menlo has the answer. the streak is only for current sequence of days. and with the new web page loaded perhaps some of the older streaks never registered.
My real problem is that I have too many eBird accounts (14)!
