  5. "Reviving" old translation up…


"Reviving" old translation uploads from an old bug?

Some time ago there used to be a "DuoBot" bug where occasionally when a translation was uploaded by a user it would list DuoBot as the uploader. For some reason, such uploads were unable to be upvoted or appear in the popular/new uploads lists, and thus other users were never able to see them.

That bug appears to have been fixed now, but the translations that were uploaded from that time are still stuck in limbo. Could someone at Duolingo somehow bump these up so they can get exposure to the collaborative translation work they never got?

I'll post links to some of the ones I uploaded that ended up getting stuck (I was able to find them by searching my "past edits" list.)

Hi Chrshou,

I had no idea this was even happening! Would you please move this over to the Troubleshooting forum so they can take a look at it? You can move your post directly by following these steps:

  1. Edit post and add the name of your operating system and browser.

  2. Click "Duolingo" in the editing window (it is a drop down menu)

  3. Select "Troubleshooting" from the menu.

  4. Save post.

To find the Troubleshooting forum in the future, just go to the main Discussion page and look to the right. Depending on your layout, you might need to scroll down until you see the link near the miniature flags (still on the right side of the page.)

Thank you!
