Days in a row using Duolingo - time zone change
I logged in to Duolingo and traveled this morning.
According to my laptop I am still on Toronto time which means my days should not have gone back to day 1 (it is currently 9:30pm in Toronto).
The US state that I am in is 3 hours behind so again, I should not have gone back to day 1 (it is currently 3:30pm in Arizona).
I don't think it's set on the timezone in which you're in. It's on it's own time no matter where you travel. It tells you on the home page how many hours you have left to study until the end of the day on site, regardless of the time zone you're in.
Rumor has it that your time zone does not change; once you have created an account in timezone X, Duolingo always treats the account as if it were in timezone X.
Time zone definitely can change on duolingo, it changed in my profile and it was an 8 hour difference. That was a month and a half ago. Now, how it changed, I'm afraid I don't know/remember. The timer shows 24 hours to complete goal xp after midnight. It might have to do with your system's (laptop/phone/tablet) time settings, whether you adjust it every time you travel or not. (I'm not sure I got that from your post.)
Well according to their post (thank you chemiazrit) I should not have lost any of my streak.
My laptop was still in my original time zone and even with the time zone change (I gained 3 hours), my streak should have stayed.
Now I am looking at it as a forced break from Duolingo until I return home - see how much I really learned.
Thank you all for responding!
