The Owl refuses to award me points

This mostly happens when I refresh completed concepts or redo completed lessons... After I finish the last question and click "Continue," the screen stays still (except for the processing sign at top left )for up to a minute, then the page refreshes automatically and am kicked back to the home screen... and my points are not added. 25 points so far today... and it's not the first time... has anyone else encountered this problem?

It has happened to me before when I've been using Duolingo during my break at work. I generally blame it on an overloaded router at work, because I never encounter the problem at home, whereas I encounter other internet issues at work as well.

Just happened to me twice in a row. Reported the glitch to duolingo.

Is this happening every time or during vocab practice?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Bharad.kv

refreshing a skill - most times (that's why I preferred doing in on the app - the option unfortunately has been taken away); not every time... happened thrice y.day practicing weak words - yes, most times practicing a particular word - not so far learning a new skill - quite rare but has happened...
