Hey! We had a switch to Daylight Savings (Winter Time) in the Netherlands, and even though I made progress before midnight here (actuall 23:30), my streak was reset to one and my bet on a 7 day streak was lost.

I got really punished hard for this time change. :-(

This might be the reason as daylight saving start at a different day here. There might be a few people affected by this, so maybe ask a staff member about this?

I don't know how to change the time on Duolingo. My streak got reset if I did not have any activity by 9 pm.

Welcome to the club! I was also caught flat-footed by the switch back to standard time, but fortunately the streak freeze kicked in. As far as I read, the streak usually follows your set time zone and therefore should consider DST, but maybe the adjustment just takes a while.

oh no! O.O I hope that doesn't happen when the time change comes here! Does anyone know if our streaks can be returned to us if this happens?? (Makes a note to self to screen shot my streak the day before.)

For the record, this happened to me when the Finnish Daylight Savings kicked in on Sunday night (2015/10/25). We moved the clock one hour back and I guess I did my review around 23:XX.

Fortunately I had a streak freeze and it saved me. I only noticed this when I went to the store today and saw that I have no streak freeze active anymore.
