If you're outside the US, here's a tip to avoid losing your streak.
It seems they use the US time zone. As a nomad in Thailand, I noticed that when I wake up, I see the products from the previous day. Only after around 17:00 (still figuring out my exact time zone) do I see the new products. So, if you upvote products early in your day, it's not guaranteed they'll be counted. This is how I lost some streaks until I figured it out. I hope this helps, and I also hope there will be more transparency about when new products will be available, so everyone, no matter their timezone, can stay on track! 😊🕰️
