Your weekly progress is back!

  • 1966

We want to apologize that the site has been slower than usual the last two days. Our database hardware degraded and we had to disable features (such as your weekly progress) on the website and in the apps to keep Duolingo up and running. Your data wasn't in danger of being lost, and as a result of this performance problem, we rewrote a core part of our code so that Duolingo runs smoother from here on out.

Thanks for your patience and dedication to Duolingo!

Ah, databases. They have a mind of their own, don't they?

Great work -- especially finding a way to degrade gracefully and allow us to continue to have fun and learn. Fixing the problem is good, keeping essential functions up at the same time is superb, and rare. Many thanks!

Many thanks for all your hard work! Quick question, did some of the things you disable include the ability to correct your mistakes to get half a heart back? If so, will this be added back?

EDITED: We are retesting half hearts but unsure if they will make it back. We are discussing this internally.

Thank you! I have been using Duolingo for Italian for the past few months and it has been the only language tool I have ever been able to stick with. I love being able to correct my mistakes. It really helps me learn how prepositions work (my biggest downfall with any language). Please reinstate it soon. Please!

I vote for half hearts!

January 18, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/kanoa

I have to also throw in one for the half hearts. What was cool about it was it cause me to check my answer by reading through the discussion on that sentence. It made me think more thoroughly about why exactly I got that question wrong, and I often learned other lessons there too. I personally think it encourages more community involvement. Regardless of what you decide though, thanks for all the work you put into this, I appreciate your time!

Thank you very much for informing me about the reason for the slowdown. Actuallly, (blush) I had complained about that, but I actually thought that it was MY computer, but maybe I needed to clear some memory. Now I feel better, and appreciate your explaining the situation.

I AM LOVING DUOLINGO, I have been working on Spanish for years, and I have made more progress in these 3 weeks, than every before!!

Sincerely,

I think "We need to add an index" and "The index needs to be defragmented" should be added to the sentence stockpile. ;-)

How do I find the weekly progress? More specifically I want to be able to see the line graph that pops up after every time I complete a lesson. I can see it on the app, but not on the website.

January 16, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/annika_a

On your home screen, where you have your tree in the middle and your points, lingots and word count on the right, it's just above the points, lingots and word count. You have to click on the Weekly progress -bit, to the right of the name of the language you are learning.

Hi, Bren. Thank you for this. Are we any further forward with the upload problems in immersion and the failure of votes to register? I'm still struggling to upload articles and still have articles showing as having been uploaded that produce 404 errors when I try to view them.

And could we have 'Your edits' back, please.

    Streaks are the number of consecutive days you've practicing your language. En tu caso, el español.
