"Practice Weak Skills" broken in iOS
I did an experiment today and did the "Practice Weak Skills" exercises on the app four times in a row, missing at most one question per exercise. For each of those four exercises I saw the same questions come up over & over.
Then, I went to the duolingo.com site and used the (mildly inconsistently named) "Strengthen Skills" button and, the first time, got the same set of questions as I had in the iOS app. But, upon completion I had "strengthened" that subject and got the gold badge. I continued on the website and got fresh questions each time I did a new exercise (as you'd expect).
So on the app the words & phrases I got right were evidently not being credited and causing me to see the same ones over and over (check the logs: I'm asked what "Finfine!" is about half a dozen times!)
Hopefully DL can get this fixed soon!
True, I guess that's another bug that "Pick a discussion topic" doesn't include Troubleshooting :-/
It's already automatically in there. When you post a New discussion, Troubleshooting doesn't appear in the drop-down.
Yeah, I think it's only part of the process that's broken. It never strengthens the skill, but correctly credits the XP.
Not sure that it's the completion at all however - at least one skill that was strong and has had had repeated use over the last few days switched to 'weak' for no reason today, so t may be the weak/strengthen system in general.
No, that is the point - the skill was /not/ in need of practice. I'd just successfully gone through the entire skill again without fault. The skill should not have come up again for days, maybe a week after that amount of activity.
