Are you talking about the reform of 1990? The spelling with or without the circumflex is allowed on Duolingo. See here: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/2856101/The-French-spelling-war Again, both traditional and rectification spellings are allowed.

on many sentences where you have a word with î if you write it without the ^ it says "pay attention to the accents"

I think there was recently some other reform. My French teacher mentioned about it last year, but I don't know more about it. So I think ThomasBur is referring to the more recent reform, if it ever happened.

It's the same reform. It only got national attention in France last year when someone mentioned the reforms again.
