Why is there a 了, and is it necessary?

了 adds some emphasis to the exclaimed statement. The following statements also have the same meanings:

  • 不要忘記/不要忘记
  • 別忘記/别忘记

You can also add 哦 to them all to sound friendlier.

So 忘 only is in the default translation here, while in other places Duolingo insists on 忘记?
