Lost Streak

When I went to the site this morning, I found that I was logged out. It made no sense because I didn't do anything that could have logged me out. But it seems that logging out reset my 21 (or 22, don't remember which) streak, as well as forcing me to lose my 5 lingot wager. I'm also wondering why logging out resets the streak counter.

Logging out has no effect on your streak. You lost your streak because you had no activity that earned you points on 11/13 (yesterday).

But I did do lessons yesterday. That's why I'm so confused. I was active, so I'm not sure why it wouldn't record any points. Do the points have to come from a certain area?

I do remember getting the points late at night, but it was definitely Wednesday. I realize that you can't do anything about it without actual proof though.

could this be a timezone issue? I have seen other users having problems due to time zone differences - sorry I do not know anything more specific :/

Could be. Where is Duolingo located? I'm in Southern Ontario, so Eastern Standard Time zone.

Your timezone is set to America/Havana, -0500 UTC, so the last activity you had was on 11/12 (subtract 5 from each datetime stamp above). You then lost your streak at midnight on 11/13.
