has duolingo not adjusted to the time change?

i am on doulingo at 10:00 and it is showing 1 hour left. usually at 10:00 it would show 2 hours left the deadline being midnight. does duo ignore daylight savings end?

I would give it a couple days to see if Duo will catch up. Daylight savings time ends earlier in European countries (this year was October 25th) and there were comments made in the forums about the website not having adjusted for a day or two, but I haven't read any complaints about it since.

Normally, yes, as other people are saying, Duo doesn't update your time zone due to a move/travel (although android phone use, userscripts, and currently a web time zone updating A/B test are all manners in which you can possibly change your zone), but I'm pretty sure they don't ignore daylight savings and spend half the year out of sync with the clocks of a very large number of people.

The Duolingo website never updates your rollover time, not even if you move timezones entirely. Apparently if you open the Duolingo app on your phone it resets it to the phone's timezone, but I don't have the app so can't confirm.

same with me. The Duolingo site home is in a certain hemisphere, and they have not made it so you can change the time zone. I must get my streak caught up by 9:00 p.m. that is very annoying for me, and i hope that Duolingo will figure out how to fix it, but for now, i cope. lol XD i have never felt so serious in my life.

This is interesting and I've heard it all over the board that Duo doesn't accommodate for timezone changes. The only thing I can figure is that the either the iOS app DOES have something to do with correcting it, or it has been corrected at this time -- it is currently 23:40 CST (so a few days ago, it would have been 00:40) and I still show <1 hour remaining on my day, which is correct and has adjusted for the time.

I wonder if simply opening Duo in app and/or on a mobile is somehow fixing things if others are still having the problem, because it seems to be correct for me.
