Where I can set my local time? I moved from east to west a mouth ago, and now my time is 23:22, but previously was 0:22. My streak was reset to 1 day and I lost my wager :((
Hi Kristine, can you, or someone else with the ability, please change my time zone to Pacific? Duolingo has me on Eastern which means I constantly drop streaks because I miss my 9 PM cutoff. I've used the app on my phone (Windows Phone 8.1) and it has not changed it. I also used it in the Mountain time zone a couple months ago and that also did not change my cutoff.
I'm not sure what triggered it to be EST; the only thing that I can think of is that I might have installed it on my phone on a stopover on the east coast. Other than that I've never used Duolingo in the eastern time zone. It's very frustrating, demotivating, and hard to understand why the system doesn't base time zones on IP ranges or something similar.
Hello, I lost my 105 day streak because I was travelling in a different time zone than the one I made my account on. I made the account in U.S. mountain time and traveled to Germany (Central European Timezone). I would love to ave my streak reset so that I can continue to enjoy getting my daily streak each and everyday.
This just happened to me, last night. I assumed Duolingo used the same time zone as my phone, since that seemed logical. I did my lessons last night at 11pm, and this morning my Spanish and Italian streaks reset.
My overall streak did not because I had a streak freeze from the lingot store, but it did not freeze the individual languages.
I hope Duo can do "smart" time zones soon (or let us set our own) because it's disheartening to lose the individual language streaks when you work so hard to make time for it every day!
I also think it seems like this won't be changed. It's really unfair when the time zone resets and you're penalized even though you've logged in on time. At least reading the funny commentary on here has cheered me up a bit :) I think I'll stop focusing on streaks from now on. It puts on too much pressure. I can just focus on progress instead. On the other hand, it will be harder to be motivated to stay consistent. That's their fault for designing the system this way though!
There was someone in a previous discussion who said that the website will change the time automatically after spending some time in a different time zone. I am not sure if that is correct though as my deadline didn't seem to change after spending a couple of months in another region. It isn't that much of an issue to me but I understand that it can be discouraging for people who enjoy improving their streak.
Yeah, I'd be interested in knowing if this policy will ever change - I moved nine time zones west several months ago (for the long term)), and so now my daily XP and streaks reset at 3pm my time which is kind of a pain. If not, is there any way you can ask to have it personally reset?
I had the opposite problem. I moved to a time zone 7 hours ahead and I was ok keeping it that way. Duolingo stayed in the old timezone for a few days. However, today it reset without telling me and I lost my 411 day streak! I thought I had 7 hours still left to complete the lesson. Can someone reinstate my streak? I worked so hard to keep that up ),:
