Activity score, how does it work

I’ve always been a really big nerd when it comes to any kind of numbers. I love all kinds of statistics and stuff like that, and the activity score on LingQ always caught my eye. It’s just a general number to represent your activity here. The thing is, I have no idea exactly how everything is calculated to give you that one number. I know that lingqs created, known words added, hours listened and words read all play a factor, but I’m really interested in figuring out the nitty gritty of how exactly it works. How much does listening for 5 minutes contribute? Creating 25 new lingqs? And why does it go up every day despite me not doing anything in between? Does it factor in your daily streak as well? I’d love to hear your thoughts on how it works.

Activity score includes all of these: LingQs created, LingQs learned, speaking events, words of writing, minutes of conversation hosting and days logged in last month. 10 points each day you access a language, so 300 activity points over 30 days if you actively study a single language every day through the site.


Thank you for your reply! I had no idea it was that simple, I thought it took into your reading and listening and stuff like that and was super complex. I appreciate the reply!
