Your weekly progress is back!

  • 2546

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!

Yay! Thank you Duo staff for all of your hard work!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/OldSpiceGuy

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


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/claude_m

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?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/kristinemc

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


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Just another "pro half hearts" vote from here...


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dr.Manhattan95

Whew, thank you so much!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jaqnimble

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!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ryanl321

I vote for half hearts!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/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!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Duotryer

I am really happy to hear that.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/zixster

you can [could] do that? wow. bet that woulda saved me some time :)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/seelian

My weekly progress is the lowest during that 2 days. Lolx


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Phyllostachys

Does that mean that the corrections for half-a-heart are going to come back?? :D !!!!!!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/nathansk8s

It does run much faster :D you guys are awesome! Du bist wirklich toll Duolingo Mannschaft!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/CapK9

Thank you guys for the feedback and all the hard work!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/MrHazard

Many thanks for your hard work. Apreciamos su trabajo duro...et votre travail, et laborem vestum (?!) Etc!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/richardchyan

Phew, my one day streak was in jeopardy!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/mptmpt

it's a good thing that it was saved, otherwise it would have taken a loooooooong time to recover it!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/marvindouglas

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,

Douglas

Thanks, hardworking staff!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Senor_dan

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


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/runnerbos

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. ;)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DuoDaisuki

Hello, I lost my ~20-day streak because the phone app kept crashing. T_T


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SongbirdSandra

Merci, bren and to all the Duo staff members. :-)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cindy_mo

thank you for the hard work


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/tonywangtj

My heart skipped a beat yesterday when I discovered about the bug

    Gracias y Thank You

    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.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/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.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Onix25

    Thanks !! as always the best ;)


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/momreil

    Thanks for all your hard work -- merci


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Luscinda

    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.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jtdr2

    oooh thank you love so much this website


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/.YvY.

    There's always something like that.

      Thanks a lot for your work!


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/lolaphilologist

      Thanks for fixing the problem- you guys rock!


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Abdo-Blash

      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?

      Thank you for your efforts!


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/HeyJudehey

      Thank you! For me, there was one of the best sites for language learning.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/_-C1-_

      Muchas gracias Duolingo! :)


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/benjamindiaz

      I didn´t notice any changes at all, for better or worse, is it because I maninly use the iphone app?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/matson

      thanks for the good updates!


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Radu-Emanuel

      Thank you! It's very interesting to follow one's progress on a day to day basis.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/cbatt

      Thanks for fixing that. I've noticed it speeding up lately.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/clone9

      no progress lost


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/kitkunnie

      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!


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dritjon

      You should have a section where I can access ALL my history. XP earned from the very beggining


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/perdyleopard

      hey guys, im kinda new to this, how do u get streaks and things?


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/benjamindiaz

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


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/perdyleopard

      hey thx for ur help 8D


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Pauline5

      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.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/adolfojn4

      Thank You Kind people. That gives me an answer to that problem.


      https://www.duolingo.com/profile/marzman

      Thanks for the fix :)

        Muchas Gracias and Many Thanks to the DuoLingo team for all the work and effort you put into this project!


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/awesome234

        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


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Domo_boss

        i love your piture


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Abdo-Blash

        Thank you Isaiah!!! Hope you enjoy your lessons with duolingo!!!!


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/BethConsugar

        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!


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Carmen275119

        Thank you for keeping us up and running, ANNND THANK YOU for allowing us to look at previous day numbers, not just the chart of progress. I like to track the numbers, and sometimes I hit midnight before I look, and it's too late to get the number.


        https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KirillMaj

        @bren I think the progress report is generating wrong numbers, or something is wrong in the metrics. Scholar Achievement is telling me 700+ words Words list is telling me 470+ words And progress is telling me 200+ words. These don't make sense though.
