Is there any way to restore a lost streak?
So I realize that the system is set up the way it is for a reason, but 130,000 people in my province lost power the other night and I had no way of maintaining it. I wouldn't care if it were just a few weeks, but I had a 208 day streak going and I was pretty proud of it.
I was actually in the middle of my lesson when I lost power, and my immediate first concern was that I was going to lose my streak.
Normally, there's no way to restore it, except for a message that pops up on the iOS app and offers it for 10$. If there's a system-wide problem, like the recent one, Duolingo staff will restore people's streaks in that specific period.
Maybe you can entrust someone you know, in another province, with your username and password and call them to buy you a streak freeze, or set the goal on 1XP and do it.
Can't use streak freeze when the entire city has no power for a day and a half and I can't get on wifi.
