Starting Over

I have lapsed somewhat but would like to start over from the beginning. How do I do that? Uninstall the app? Or is there a secret door to a parallel universe.... thanks in advance

      On the web version, you hover over your profile pic on the upper right hand corner, then choose "Settings" from the menu that pops up.

      If you do this does it reset your streaks and lingots as well? Thanks :)

      A really good question.. it seems one loses streak, crowns and XP earned thru the language but not lingots, but there is no way of knowing for sure unless one of the mods knows or one is to ask in the respective forum.

      Of course we can wait and ask for Jen742260 to report back after she did the reset. ;-)

      I've just done this and lost all the crowns for this language but didn't lose my streak. I'm sure of that. I believe I also kept all the lingots but can't tell for sure because I don't pay much attention to their number.

      Thanks for the feedback. It is possible you did not lose your streak since you're doing multiple languages and perhaps practised each every day? And no, I'm not willing to delete Spanish to test that theory since it's the one I started with on DL, before adding the others. ;-)

      Thanks everyone I'll have a look next time I have the PC cranked up. J
