The end of the day time is wrong for Turkey


In Turkey, we have stopped using daylight saving time and stuck with summer time (gmt+3 for winters, gmt+2 for summers).

However, the duolingo app still finishes the day according to gmt+2. Which means at time 11.00 pm in Turkey, the new day starts for duolingo.

Can this get fixed? Thanks

Install the user script DuoTweak on the webinterface, try it (changing hours +-) and see if you can fix with it the timezone thing.

The timezone Duo puts you in is the timezone you were in when you first registered with Duolingo.

The Android app (and possibly the iOS app) will change this to your current timezone but I don't believe the browser version does that. Although there maybe a user script thatcan do it.

If not you should always practice well before the end of the day to ensure you keep your streak.

what if I reinstall the app? Because the timezone rule of Turkey has changed. Even windows made a special patch for that. But for the android, it is chaos. Sometimes it takes my streak freeze even though I've completed the training. Sometimes I have to pay 20 lingots to just save 1 days streak

While it doesn't directly fix the bug, I feel like duolingo days shouldn't roll over at midnight. They should roll over when people are asleep. If you're like me you practice duolingo before bed. Also if you're like me you go to bed around midnight, give or take. So I end up practicing anywhere from 11:00 to 12:30 usually. On the days that it's after midnight, I've lost my streak even though it's approx 24h between practices! Honestly it would work out better for me if it rolled over at noon instead of midnight.
