Streak Reset Before End of Day

At the moment of this post, it's still Saturday to me and my final-hour reminder not even had a chance to fire, but my streak is back to 1 (from me doing lesson within last hour) after I ended Friday with over a month streak.

I'm not sure if I'm being tripped by the mobile issue some people reported in the last day or so, or if Duo is suddenly counting me in a different timezone. Either way, it'd be nice to have this fixed, kind of ruins the game (and fun) of trying to hold a streak when the deadline moves earlier for unknown reason.

Go to www.duolingo.com/users/shailagray and use your browserfunction to search the resulting page for timezone. This should tell you which timezone Duo thinks you are in.

There is an A/B test running at the moment that automatically adjusts your timezone whenever you travel and cross timezones. If you are part of that test then this could account for your loss.

Duo appears to correctly recognize that I'm on Central Standard Time and I haven't traveled outside my state (AL) recently.

Well, be glad it was only a 30 day streak. I just lost a 557 day streak over New Year's Day, which followed another lost 175-day steak. Back up to 15 days now.

ouch! Good for you for keeping a new streak. In reality you have a total of just around 1000 day streak!

I think that a streak is a dangerous thing for Duolingo existance. It makes people (me either) consider if maybe it would be better to move to competition.

Where are you? Where were you before? I do have a reset for the weekly total on Sunday afternoon, so I always make sure to do some in the morning and more later. The weekly reset wipes my daily total, but supposedly that daily total was already saved before being wiped. I imagine that in some places that would appear on Saturday. Keep in mind that there is a monthly total also. I am careful around that change as well.

I'm in Alabama, which is on Central Standard Time. Due to offline responsibilities, I don't very often have opportunity to do the lessons before it's late in the evening on the weekends. Which is why I had been finding it a relief that Duo was doing the day crossover right at midnight CST. When I look at the activity graph on the homepage, it shows that I did earn 10xp on Saturday (sufficient for my goal setting), even though apparently it's still counting for today instead.
