Streak reset to one day

Today my streak reset itself to one day, even though I've not missed a day of Duolingo for the past 138 days! On the chart on the home page it confirms that I haven't missed a day, so not sure what's going on! I've met all my goals, and yesterday it worked fine too... Any ideas?

Did you tried to ask for put it again at 138 days ? I don't know if it is possible but, i hope. I think my issue is not the same as you, because the graphic show sunday as not meet. I think it's a connection issue in relation with mobil internet. But it's discouraging.

The same happened to me as soon as I set the hour to the local one in my new mobile phone and then started DL. Lost strike of about more than 120 days, I don't remember how much it was. :(

No way to get them back? It is unfair. Even my motivation is not to keep the strike but to learn a language. But it was something. And one of DL motivation clue is strike.

I think DL should rethink how to improve its motivation system. For instance one could buy strike of more then one day, using XP available. And more. Accidents like this can easily happen. And most users do not know it.

It's very frustrating, as it's clearly Duolingo's glitch, and not due to a day of no practice. I've sent a bug report, so hopefully someone will read it and restore the streak.
