Streak Number Reset... Why?
The streak counter is a particularly good motivator for me, but recently I've been finding that I don't understand why it resets, which makes it frustrating.
I was under the impression that if you get any points during a day it would increase your streak by 1 each day. But twice now I've been reset to 0 even while completing lessons. Is there a certain number of points or number of lessons each day I have to achieve or is this simply an error?
Would be great if someone could clear this up.
Hi EProulx - I took a look and your coin stack says there were no points earned for Thursday (yesterday) :( Can you look at your coin stacks and verify this? Go to the home tab, and under your username next to the "French" tab should be a "Weekly Progress" tab. This helps you know if you've earned coins for the day.
Hmm, for me it says I earned 32 on Thursday. Perhaps Duolingo is getting confused because of time differences? Would it be possible that there would be a discrepancy because i created the account in Ontario, which is two hours ahead of Alberta where I am now.
What I mean is I earned those 32 points late last night, at 11 say... could Duolingo have thought that I was earning them at 1:00 AM Ontario time.
It's still weird that it shows 32 points on my computer. Could you comment on the number of points I've earned today? For me it shows 101 points... does your view add the 32 points perhaps?
Interesting issue. I will be traveling from Australia to the USA soon - will my streak still count in Australian time? Will I need to earn points in Australian time while in the USA? On my return I will 'lose' a day traveling due to crossing the date line (ie I leave on Wednesday evening in the USA and arrive 14 hours later on Friday morning in Australia - how can I prevent losing my streak count?
Thanks, but I guess what I was asking is whether I will need to adjust my time while in the USA to Australia west coast time - USA is 16 hours behind Australian time ... so any time after 8 am will be the next day in Australia! On the other hand if the system detects where I am somehow, then I would simply move to USA east coast time. That would then cause an issue on my return as I will 'miss' a day while I am in the air.
