Rules and Immersion Search

Is there a single place for learning the rules for Duolingo. I have been picking them up as I go along.

However last night, when I went to bed I had just leveled into 13 (Yay) and when I got up this morning I was back in 12.

Sometimes I get points for clicking "looks good" and sometimes, not. In French, yesterday I wasn't getting any. I think it works like this (most of the time) - pick a piece that needs to be checked and check the sections that "look good" - for a point. But this doesn't always happen. Do I have the rule wrong?

Is there an easy way to find a piece in Immersion that I have worked on? I just search through the list but sometimes I can't even find it. I was asked a question and need to look at the whole paragraph again so see if I just goofed or had a reason to edit what I did.

Were you using a phone app for one but not the other? Some people have reported discrepencies between the two.

The only thing I know of that actually deducts points is unrating one of your own edits, but it doesn't sound like you did that.

Sometimes I get points for clicking "looks good" and sometimes, not.

I haven't run into that. I just tried it and I get points for rating a sentence regardless of whether or not it was already marked as "checked".

The "Your edits" tab.

Unfortunately, there isn't a single location for instructions and rules, though there have been several user posts collecting many of them into one place. (I made one of those posts but I lost it and was unable to find it.)

Rules for DL are spread out. It's a good idea to use the Discussion search bar to the right of the main Discussion page.

I often find resources to the top, left, and right sides of main pages, as well as the bottom as instructions can be located anywhere around the content. (For example, the support tab on the left side of the page, about halfway down; the language discussion forums on the right side halfway down; and the Guidelines and Terms of service all the way at the bottom of the page.)

Here are the Immersion Community Guidelines: http://www.duolingo.com/comment/984423

If you are in one of the Tier test groups, look for "Translator Tier" (this is a link) on the right side of the page next to a small language flag. Click the link. It will give you a run down on the Immersion points distribution.

Depending on if you are in a test group, and which test group you are in, these distributions might vary.
