Would you fix my streak and lingot count, s'il vous plaît?

Last Friday, I began practicing my French (on Duolingo, of course!) at 11:30 (or 11:35) p.m. and I finished the lesson at 12:05 a.m.

I was surprised when my streak was reset to 0 and I lost my lingot wager!

After I thought about it for a while, I realized that it might have happened because I completed the lesson after midnight.

The reason that it took so long to finish the lesson, is because:  I write all vocabulary down with definitions, I write down all verb conjugations, I practice pronunciation/speed along with the recordings, and I read lesson discussions, if I encounter a problem.

Anyway...would you, please, correct my streak and lingot count?

As of today (12/27/13), my streak should be 28 days.
I should have 10 additional lingots added to my total (5 that were lost and the 5 I should have won for winning the wager).

Merci beaucoup for all your help! Thank you!
J'adore Duolingo! :-)

Did I place this discussion in the wrong area; is that why it was thumbed down?
I thought it belonged in the 'Troubleshooting' category. If not, please, let me know.

I'm new and this is my first thread, so let me know if I have done something wrong, s'il vous plaît! :-)


Troubleshooting would be the right spot, although I'd guess people are thumbing you down because your request is unfortunately a long shot. You can also try to email the team using the support tab to the left of the screen.
It sucks that this happen to you, a suggestion in the future would be to do a quick Lesson Practice and earn at least one point before you settle into a long lesson. I'm like you and like to read every sentence discussion, but I always make sure to get my point in if I start close to the deadline. This may just be one of those hard lessons earned, but you can revive your streak in no time, don't let this distress you!
(I'll even give you some lingots to get you back on the right track!)


Wow! How nice of you!
Yes, I didn't know we had to complete lessons before midnight; I thought as long as I was using the site, my activity would register.

Thank you for your reply and your support. (That's a nice streak you have there!).  :-)
