Error 500

I had just finished adding my new profile picture, and when I went back to my profile I got a message saying "Error 500".

It was repeated several times while I tried to get to my profile, and after a couple minutes, it seemed to have solved itself.

Has anyone else been experiencing this? Can anyone offer an explanation?

EDIT: Thank you linda for you explanation!

EDIT 2: I see that other people are also experiencing this glitch too.

I would imagine it was a delay while your image was loading up, so that it could then be referenced.
Until it was correctly loaded in the duolingo reference system, when your page put a call out for displaying the image - the system sent back the error message 500 - that the image could not be found.

Sometimes delays can happen for all sorts of reasons - including the speed of your connection to the internet.

Regarding Sophia's question - the picture that the error message 500 brings up is that of a crying owl, because we are sad that the page reference call you made has brought up an error.

It is probably because you did not give it long enough
