last practiced words

If my tree is complete and gold, why do I have words that have not been practiced in three years?

I have the same problem, and for me they're things I use almost every lesson. Oh Duo, sometimes I don't understand you ways.

I noticed the same thing a month or two ago. About a Quarter of my words in Spanish now have 1 bar. Since I finished the tree a while ago, I've been trying to work on words with 1 bar or not practiced in long time. I'm trying to practice the words by go to the corresponding lesson, but they don't always show up in the review. It's annoying, but I don't worry about it.

These are mostly word forms (conjugations and declensions) that don't appear in any lesson or, if they appear in a lesson, they don't cause that word's strength to increase.

If you do enough "Strengthen skills" exercises, some (perhaps all) will eventually be presented, but you have no control over when that happens. In the last 3 weeks or so, I've reduced this list of below-full-strength Spanish words from about 300 down to about 140, but it took several hundred XP per day to do that.

Thanks for the information. I'll probably redo lessons to get those words updates. There may be words that I don't remember.

I've seen about a dozen discussion threads in which people report that, a couple weeks ago, a large number of words at low strength levels, some with very old "Last Practiced" dates, recently appeared all at once without any noticeable effect on the gilding of their trees.

One person posting, who seemed to have inside knowledge, conjectured that there had been a bug that kept these words from appearing in the word lists and, to correct the effects of that bug, the missing words were being added all at once in a way that was intended to be least disruptive.

I have yet to see any official acknowledgment that this even happened.

Something similar happened a couple years ago. Here is an official announcement about it: "https://www.duolingo.com/comment/486819".
