so sad

I'm so sad that I lost my 260-day streaks accidentally. I thought I bought the frozen day when I was traveling but I didn't. Wish I can use all my lingots to restore the streaks. can I, please?

DL, I still love you though.

That's terrible. If you give me some lingots I will hold a minute's silence for your streak.

I am sorry, that happened to me before. Now, I check to see if I have my Streak Freeze every day. I don't need any lingots, so I will hold a minute's silence for your streak.

Gesus, how long have you been on duolingo? YOU LEARNED EVERYTHING

You may have lost your streak but you certainly didn't lose the priceless knowledge and wisdom you acquired from Duo the owl.

Condolences! I still wish that Duo. had a place to record the longest streak you have had. That way, it would not feel quite so lost.

Sorry for your streak loss. But as long as you keep on loving DL, DL will keep on rewarding you with streaks and lingots. :-)

I accidentally lost a 150 streak last weekend when I went to my German class and forgot to do my Duolingo lesson. (I also thought I had the freeze enabled.)

In my view, it is much more important to practice every day -- even if it is just talking to yourself in German! You must know quite a lot after 260 days:)

Bitte, verlier nicht deine Motivation!

I am sorry for your lost. Have 100 lingots. Keep going!

that is awful. i agree it would be great if you could restore your streak with lingots.

I am so sorry. But just keep going, learning is more important.

I know how you feel. I lost a 212 day streak. Somehow, DL used midnight eastern time, and I was in Hawaii and figured I had until midnight there. That sucked. It really discouraged me. Now, I'm at 638 days and would have been 200+ days further. That is one really negative part of Duolingo.

It would be good if they could restore your 260 day streak by subtracting the amount of days you missed. So if you were away 14 days, it would set you back to 246 days. Even if you did have to use lingots to pay for it. It would be worth it.

260 days?! You rock!

thank you all for the encouragement and caring, and the lingots. I've determined to get back to 260 streaks and beyond. watch me...

You may have lost a streak, but you didn't lose any of the knowledge you gained in those 260 days! I would feel really bad if it happened to me. Let's see what a streak you build up on the way to Lesson 25! alles Gute!

A good advice for you from my own experience... don't give up! I also lost my long streak and at some point it really discouraged me. First i was doing Duolingo pretty irregularly and then at some point i stopped. It was really frustrating to see how few day I had. I had a half year long break in my German until yesterday when i finally decided to revise what I already had known. And although it's still frustrating to see just a two day strike, seeing how much I've forgotten in that time is even worse! My whole tree was not golden any more and Duolingo added at that time a lot of new classes so I basically started my tree from the very beginning... So keep up with your German tree, the streak is a very good encouragement but not the most important one. At the end we just want to finish the tree not to have a long streak ;)
