How to report on levels I have left?

I often get a mail: "Someone commented on…" where some one tells me, that I am right about my objection to the translation given by duolingo - and the then they write "Please report". When I wrote to comment in the first place, it was a question. That's the reason that I didn't report it straight way. But I can't se that I have any access to reporting the problem, when I have moved on.(?) So maybe it would be better if people wrote: "I'll report.." rather than "please report".

When someone replies to you, though, there's no guarantee that they can report it either -- they might be looking at the forum rather than at the lesson. We really need a way to report things from the forums as well as from lessons.

Thanks SomeoneIsDancing That make sense. Until a better solution is made, maybe those who send such a comment form the forum should make it clear that "the next one reading this please report. - I am only reading from a discussion forum page" When I have seen the message "Please report, I have always taken it to be a dialog between the one who posed the question and the one responding.

If I see a comment that says, "X Translation should be accepted", I will usually respond with, "please report these using... ...DL staff doesn't check forums...", because to me it just looks like complaining, and it doesn't seem like a question and I want to make sure they know how to solve these problems.
Now, if it seems like a question, I'll answer the question (if I can) and then recommend if they see the question again to report it.
If you really want to report it after the fact, you can use the 'support' tab, but its not the easiest method.

Edit: Another reason the responder isn't going to report it is because the best method of reporting is selecting my answer should be accepted. Of course, this can only be done after incorrectly answering a question, which would be too late for anyone reading the forums.

Hi Marie_Marie,

After you've submitted an answer in the lesson or practice, you should be able to report a problem or discuss the sentence as shown in the screen shot below. If you don't have these options, you might want to move this discussion to the Troubleshooting forum.

If you need to move this to Troubleshooting, here are some instructions: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/1254215

I hope this has answered your question. Good luck with your studies! ^_^

Edit I just realized that the sentence says "Don't do it." Um... ignore that sentence. lol! I just fixed the picture.

Usagiboy7, I think you misunderstood Marie_Marie's problem. The "Report a problem" button is only available during a lesson, but at that time she wasn't sure that it was a problem. She only found out when she got a notification of an answer to her question.

What we're asking for is a way to report a problem from the discussion itself without being in lesson mode.

In the past, if I really really REALLY wanted to report the problem, I used to go to Vocabulary and practise one of the more uncommon words in the sentence until I finally got given the problem sentence. I sometimes got a_lot of practice this way :-)

Hi Usagiboy7 - thanks for reply, but I think you missed the point. I did have the option of reporting in the first place, the problem is that I can't get back to that option later.

From the comment section for the sentence in question (that you should be able to get to through your email notification), use the "Support" tab on the left hand side of your screen (mid-screen). Fill in appropriate fields with the issue. Your report should be linked to the sentence discussion automatically, so they'll know which sentence you're talking about, but give as much detail as possible anyways.
