I cannot load anyone's stream, including my own. Is anyone else experiencing this?
Edit: still not working for me, 4 hours later...
Edit 2: And now 22 hours later...
Edit 3: about 24 hours later some streams seem to be working, others not. Mine has a three-week gap in it and isn't showing new skills completed.
In a possibly-related glitch, Duolingo has also bombarded me with email reminders at the wrong time and for languages I have already practised.
We're always with you, Lento : ).
Looks like it's finally fixed! I noticed the feed working this morning but the entries were from 3 weeks back. Over the course of the past 10 hours or so I've noticed it slowly updating to more recent entries. Now it seems to have finally caught up to real-time. Very strange :)
Me too!!!!! How weird!! : (
yay now it works!!!!!! : D
I am betting this is a glitch, as it has occurred previously and been fixed. :)
Same. As Usagiboy said, it has happened before. At least we aren't alone ;D
Thank you for letting us know. Do you have more/more certain info since then? Also, I have been wondering if all Duo members experience the effects of this glitch or only some of us do? If everyone is affected, then those who thus far haven't found this thread are still without info as to what's happening? Should that be the case, wouldn't it be a good idea to notify everyone by making this thread a sticky, or letting them know in some other way?
As far as I know, everyone was affected. It looks like a few accounts are just now starting to see a little progress with portions of their stream reappearing.
The ways of staff are mysterious and they tend to limit their time in the forums. So, we (mods) are doing what we can to get the word out as we receive it.
I thought that too! I was so scared I was shadowbanned, until I found out i can still post :)
Hugs Cody. This thought also crossed my mind. Thanks for being able to talk about concerns.
For being able to talk about worries can help others feel better about the worries others have ( like me ) . That it ok to have a worried thought. Others also have them. And that is all it is. It is just a thought. It is ok to think it. Look at it. And then acknowledge this is not the case and then I can let it go, leave it behind.
Thank you for the lingots, whoever gave them. Thank you Linda, too :) I was thinking it was from some of the earlier problems I caused last year.
Do always know - what matters most in life - is what you decide to do in this current moment. This current moment is the only one that you can decide to do something.
Always, I hope, that you can choose to make your past, and your future, inspirations. To help you make a decision to do something in the present, that brings hopefully better things into this world.
Remember to always forgive - also yourself, for things in the past. Do not forget them, and I hope you have the strength to also address them, and where necessary make amends for them. Do not use them to break you. To use them to bring good to your world and that of your community around you. Only you can choose to do this. No one can do this for you.
And then to allow certain things lay at rest. Not to forget them, instead to forgive them. And to chose that which you can use - to help them to make you ... well the inspirational thinking being that is you.
Sending you a * kanga hug * Cody.
ummm - and yes - thank you to whoever gave the lingots !
That is a huge surprise !
I will spend them well - whoever has donated them.
I thought they scheduled those for 11:45 pm when I'm trying to get my streak in.
Oh crap, is that what happened to me? Seriously, I got a message, "too many requests," and lost my 973-day streak.
That's terrible! I got the "too many requests" thing several days in a row but I was lucky enough to keep my streak. Were you using the stats userscript? Some people said that may have been the problem.
Yes, I need that script to see my students' trees. It was dumb of me to get on DL at 11:45 pm and check the notifications before logging in some points; I didn't think of the possible consequences.
I'm not sure about the times anymore, sometimes I'll have too many requests on particular days, than no activity stream, then sometimes I have my immersion tab re-appear, it's all just getting frustrating.
Are you still having the "too many requests" problem? I haven't had that since you made that post about it.
I've also got lag on immersion points being added, way beyond the normal delay (more than 24 hours) and a glitchy 'like' button. And whilst it won't be news to anyone that the popular vs like function on the discussion board doesn't really work, how is this not showing there as opposed to threads that are older with far fewer replies and upvotes?
In short, site not working properly.
Thank you Luscinda for this update. It is appreciated - for a great many reasons !
Including some recent current events. Thank you for being the highly regarded member of our language learning community that you are, and have been for a very long time.
I'd like to give a big shoutout to lindakanga, the wonderful Duolingo moderator!!! ^-^
Thank you for making us all feel better about this situation.
Thank you for reassuring us that things will be resolved.
Thank you for helping everyone stay positive throughout this whole mess.
And last but not least, thank you for being so kind, and keeping Duolingo a safe, trouble-free place to learn.
Thank you!!! ^-^
ummmmmm. this is slightly uncalled for. Can I hold the mirror up to you HFM2402 !
Thank you HFM2402 !
- for being the inspirational person in our community and language learner to aspire to for our community that you are !
Edited and appologizes for my errors
My activity stream is empty and it says "you're alone"... but at least now I know that I'm not alone! Thank you for posting this!
Ditto, it is very odd, activity is glitching too. It says I am "all alone" when I am following 34 users.
I don't want to die alone!
EDIT: I do hope this isn't permanent. I have heard rumors about an A/B test where this happens, and I do not want it.
It's not permanent and not an a/b test this time. Just a malfunction.
These bunnies, omg ♥ (just don't get carried away. we wanna keep things on topic ;)
Thanks for all your time informing us on the problem. Sorry, didn't mean to get carried away. :)
Thanks - I was just about to submit one myself. I discovered this problem 8:00 am Australian time (that's 9 hours ago - others reported it on this thread 10 hours ago). They fixed it a lot faster last time.
Yeah, I only got on like an hour ago, so I hope this gets fixed soon! >.<
Thanks so much for the update, they seem to be fixing it. My activity now shows posts from 2 weeks ago but at least it's something!
Same. Maybe an update? I have all 4 bars online.....
Edit: I have tried reloading and it yet to load. Hmm. Edit of Edit: Tried again- and got the little thing to post to the person. I typed, "Hello", and there was no signal that I was typing. Improvement? Yes
When I first realized that my activity page was acting up, I thought I was banned! >.<
Now I realize that everyone else is also being affected by this glitch.
Glad to know that I haven't done anything wrong! ^-^
P.S. I hope this gets fixed quickly!
Yeah, I'm getting an error message when I try to load my stream, but it still shows that I have followers and people that I'm following.
Mine doesn't work since yesterday evening 22:00. I suppose we must have patience....
Yes - there is nothing else we can do. Be thankful for what we have - and that we can continue with our language learning. To keep focused on what is important.
And know - whatever happens - things are, and will change.
And in that - thank you for being the wonderfully resilient and supportive community - focused on learning languages - that we as a community are.
Same for me, stream has not been loading properly for half a day. Glad to see that I am not alone with my solipsistic scare. :-)
Same here as well :(
Thank you Garpike for starting this thread, and thank you All for the info, updates and comments. It's a relief to realise, it's only a glitch telling us we are alone :)
Just discovered this problem as well. Glad to see it's not just my account that decided acting normally was too mainstream. It really sucks, since now I can't do my daily banter with a certain English learner.
Me too, plus it knocked out my password so I had to request a new one.
For me, it seems that my Activity stream is back, but all the activity is 2 weeks old! I can see others' streams as well, but it's also outdated. Improvements, but not quite back to how it's supposed to be. Glad I can still communicate with my friends on the discussion streams, though. ^-^
Thanks, Duolingo team!!!
Yes, this is still happening. It seems frozen at a certain time and the stream is several months old. At least that's what I am experiencing.
How am i supposed to type in Greek? im at a loss and dont understand how i can answer the English to Greek. I cant progress
There's a post towards the top of the Greek forum that will help.
You might also want to look at the Guide to keyboard layouts and input methods on the wiki.
If you have technical problems like this, you're more likely to get a useful response if you post in the troubleshooting forum, rather than putting a comment at the bottom of some other post.
