Your weekly progress is back!
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!
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 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!
Does that mean that the corrections for half-a-heart are going to come back?? :D !!!!!!!
It does run much faster :D you guys are awesome! Du bist wirklich toll Duolingo Mannschaft!
Many thanks for your hard work. Apreciamos su trabajo duro...et votre travail, et laborem vestum (?!) Etc!
it's a good thing that it was saved, otherwise it would have taken a loooooooong time to recover it!
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!!
I think "We need to add an index" and "The index needs to be defragmented" should be added to the sentence stockpile. ;-)
You guys are awesome!! You can expect to see my job application in 2 years! By then I'll have at least 1.5 foreign languages under my belt. ;)
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.
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.
Thanks a lot for your work!
Wow, I'm surprised of your levels in different languages, How long did you take to learn all those languages??? and How many hours do you study a day?
I didn´t notice any changes at all, for better or worse, is it because I maninly use the iphone app?
Thank you! It's very interesting to follow one's progress on a day to day basis.
Definitely a good news. I am a last minute person, so as usual I learnt late on Wednesday night and almost loose one day of learning due to slow connection. Glad to hear that it's okay now. Thank you so much, Duolingo!
You should have a section where I can access ALL my history. XP earned from the very beggining
Streaks are the number of consecutive days you've practicing your language. En tu caso, el español.
Well, it looks as if no points were recorded for me for German on Tuesday, but the Spanish was! I practised both languages that day.
Thanks for creating this website and putting all of your work into it. You guys also had a lot of great updates on the app. The best part is...this app is completely free
Thanks for bringing this back! Can this feature be added to the app as well? I'd love to be able to see it easily in the same place where I do most of my Duolingo learning! Thanks for all your hard work!
