Negative skill points?
How did I get negative skill points yesterday in French? If I recall correctly I did timed practice and some light translating- is this a bug? Can it be fixed?
I just received -5 skill points in Immersion as well. I have taken screenshots (below) to document what happened for me, as well as a narrative.
Here is the article I was working on: https://www.duolingo.com/translation/3ba5af693b205274033970d4bd33b3c0
I haven't worked in Immersion much lately so I went in and saw what was popular. I scanned for something that was a few sentences away from being finished. I found that doc and looked through it for sections that either a) weren't translated or b) hadn't been checked. I found a section that was light gray so I decided to check it.
Its current translation seemed ok. But, I found a slightly better translation (I hope) among the ones that people had submitted much earlier. So, I reverted to that one. However, when I selected that translation and hit the Revert button, nothing happened. I gained no points and the passage didn't revert. So, I chose the translation again and hit "revert" again. That is when I was given the negative points.
Before working on this section, I noted that the passage was gray (Translation needs to be checked). It was not green. Green would have indicated that I had translated or checked it before. Instead, it was light gray indicating that I had not edited or checked it before.
However, after reading your comment, I went and clicked on another sentence so I could see the passage I had just edited and been docked 5 points for. The passage still had not turned green. It was still light gray.
Here is a screenshot of what I'm looking at.

Thank you :)
I don't think it will help, but here's the screenshot of the negative points, and my many tabs just for fun. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1RIxzfih-fcI2ABS0HTjCso_3REx-uxwvkbs07UkrNDA/edit?usp=sharing
