The "something" module appears not to be advancing or showing advancement. It doesn't have a unique icon either. Does it need a tweak? :)

It does advance, you just can't see it because it's white. Confused the whatnots out of me, too. If you keep going, suddenly and without warning you will have finished the lesson! I wasn't sure if the lesson was broken, and so I experimented by just keeping going, and it worked.

I believe the later skill 'nothing' has the same thing. It's a little unnerving - I like to know how close I am to finishing...

I think the background on the icon is white and because of that the progress bar is white too. If you keep doing the lesson, it will advance, you just won't see it.

Don't know if it is related but the "Begin" button is also white.

I mean the button which has "Locked" caption for lessons I have not reached yet, then changes to "Begin" and after I completed the Lesson turns to "Redo". For normal Lesson this button has colored background but for the "Something" section the background is white

The icon for this skill is supposed to be an egg (just like for the "Basics 1" skill).

As for the progress bar, it must be a bug. I just tried the skill and it doesn't advance for me either.

I reported it; hopefully it gets fixed soon. Thanks for pointing it out. :)

I think the progress bar is working normally, but it's white and therefore invisible. Notice that it's different colors for other skills. I don't know why they made it white, that seems a really bad idea.

The progress bars in all our skills are supposed to show visible advancement. We did not make it like this, nor is this how it's supposed to be. We're waiting for Duolingo team to fix the bug (which I hope will happen soon).

I just noticed that the CSS class for other skills contains a colour name (green, blue, red, etc.), but Something skill has none, defaulting to white.

Definitely a silly bug.
