My Streak is Gone but Had Streak Freeze

Hi Duolingo, I have been doing Duolingo for a month. I was at a 20 day streak. Today was supposed to be 21. My goal was 100. I realized I didn't want to lose my streak so I bought my first streak freeze for 5 lingots. Every single day I did duolingo and everyday I checked to see if my streak freeze was used up. But today I completely forgot since I was out all day and knew I had streak freeze to back me up. But sadly for some reason I am at a 0 streak O_O. WHAT HAPPENED!! Is there anyway I could prove this happened and get my streak back? You know without giving the moderator 400 lingots!!!! Please help! Thanks for Reading! Sincerely A sad gal, LearnerJmt

I am not sure of your timezone, but in UTC, it seems you have been practicing daily till 24th (06/24/2015 @ 3:09pm). Today is 27th, so there's a gap of more than 1 day. Streak Freeze would have frozen your streak for the first miss, not the second.


Thanks for responding but I don't think so. I am in the Eastern TIme Zone and have done it everyday. When I looked at your comment you said it would freeze for the first miss. Well yesterday was the first miss! I did it everyday and made sure that my streak freeze wasn't used up!


Please find below the data for your last few practice sessions in UTC.

  • 06/20/2015 @ 10:56pm (UTC) - 10 XP
  • 06/21/2015 @ 11:45pm (UTC) - 10 XP
  • 06/22/2015 @ 11:04pm (UTC) - 10 XP
  • 06/23/2015 @ 2:25pm (UTC) - 10 XP
  • 06/24/2015 @ 3:09pm (UTC) - 10 XP

To find your account timezone, you can go to the link https://www.duolingo.com/users/LearnerJmt and do a find for timezone. After that you can convert the UTC times to your own timezone to see if there's a gap.

In any case, please don't be disheartened by the loss of the streak. The progress you made in the last 20 days is still with you. Regular reinforcement helps retain newly gained knowledge. This is the basic idea behind motivating people to develop a streak. But, don't forget, your aim in proficiency in the language. If you practice daily, a streak will naturally follow.

Do get the Double or Nothing wager in the store. The challenge usually helps build a streak, 7 days at a time. Here's a few lingots to get you started on a wager. Happy learning!


Thank you! I guess I will just start from the bottom again and make my way up! I love challenges! Thanks for your help! You just got another follower! ;D!
