Thanks to the Duo team for getting everything back up

That's all. No doubt it was hard work.

It seems to have been an issue with AWS. Some other websites were also impacted. Funny thing, I don't seem to see language level flags besides any of the posts here.

Edit: And now I do.

I heard it was just down for maintenance

It was clearly an unplanned outage. Amazon web services had a glitch this morning with a server in Virginia, which affected much of the Northeast, presumably Duolingo included.

I've lost my progress too today. What did you do to restore it? I was 23% fluent french and now only 12% - has made me want to stop using this now!

I'm having horrific problems on my iPhone app right now. Lessons freezing, completed ones not counting, etc... is this related to this?
