        @Zoran, streak recovery probably doesn't work, could you check it?

        Same thing happened to me this weekend. Kind of cool they let you know, but don't let you repair. Either way, I failed to keep up, so in a way, repairing your streak is kind of cheating, right?

          https://1drv.ms/u/s!AthUDLfa4rfJhEPpUCoPxGByam2Q?e=d8y9a4 I actually started doing my lesson before bed, but then my laptop started overheating suddenly so I went on updating drivers and damn windows update by the time I fixed it I realized it was already sunday :( :( :(

          I agree! It is def cheating but I don't think it's cheating if it's the same day but after 12am. For example I've used the repair feature when I just didn't get to Lingqing until after 12am. As a night owl, it's kind of annoying to have the cut off point be 12am!

            repair streak is designed exactly for that purpose it doesn't work if you miss out on multiple days.

            I don't understand, regardless of when the cycle starts over, you still have 24 hours to add to your streak. I don't see how it matters if you're a morning person or a night owl. I guess there could be edge cases that prove against this logic, but I'm sure most people/situations don't.

            If it is the former, maybe a feature enhancement request to change when you want your cycle to restart.

            Either way, it is still kind of cheating no matter how you look at it. If you didn't study in the same alotted time that everyone else is held to, then you broke your streak, there is no excuse.

            Maybe cheating is not the right word, but paying to "fix" your streak is a false representation of your work. I get the psychology behind the gamification of it, but it still isn't an accurate reflection of committed work. That should be the motivation itself to work so you don't break your streak.

            Another way to look at it is in 90-day challenge, you only miss one day. You worked 98.88% of the days and still made huge progress in your language goals. That is still very impressive!

            Change your perspective, change your world.

    @ I repaired your streak. @milenalazarevic I'll fix your streak too, we have small issues with your streak at the moment, but I think we will have it restored tomorrow. Just keep working on it, no worries.

    To fix this forever, just go to Settings -> Profile -> Time Zone and change it to the next.

    Done!

    You will have an extra hour to do your linQs! The day will end at 01:00 instead of 12:00. And that is not cheating!
