I'm somewhat hoping that it's a bug, and not an A/B test. (Obviously, it's not major enough to make me run away but... let's be honest, the flags and streak marker sometimes tell me who to take seriously in the fora and who to consider a troll.)

But no, I can't see them either.

Yes. It might actually kill me if they took them away. I would stick around though lol.

If it would be an A/B test, there would be people who still can see the flags, though nobody has commented this yet. I therefore assume that nobody is able to see the flags and it's probably a bug

The flags are a lie. I made a post in the tech area yesterday because I'm level 23 in Spanish, but my flag was showing level two--with occasional bouts of 23.

Don't trust 'em.

It's because you have another "Spanish for _ speakers" course that's interfering with your other one.

Correct, but there's nothing one can do about. Deleting one makes it worse. I am sure I am not the only one who has an artificially level because of this.

They are temporary I think. The techs are doing something, hopefully they can fix my flag and username bug.

I don't think it will =[

I made 2 posts and 3 glitch reports and nothing. However a previous user had this problem and it was fixed.. many months later.

Maybe they are finally fixing it :) , they always show my flags wrongly with different levels, it is because I have more than one for the same language, but they show levels that I don't have in any tree lol.

I noticed the same thing.............and then they came back............and a few minutes later they disappeared again.............and then they came back again........... so my guess is something is screwed up and they are working on it.........right now I don't see them.......

I don't see anything either. It is really weird and the comments just look so lacking in colour. Hopefully they come back soon because I love seeing what languages everyone is learning and what level they are on as well as their streaks.

I hope they're just fixing the wrong level flag problem. Too many times have I been told a level 7 shouldn't explain grammar (so many things wrong with that as well...)
