[Mod issue] Deleting posts occasionally takes forever due to a possible glitch?

Hey there,

When deleting posts within sentence discussions, during a lesson, I automatically get kicked back to the top of the thread. Meaning, if there are 50 posts in the thread, and there are 25 or so garbage posts at the bottom of the thread (because they've been downvoted), every time I delete one, I have to scroll all the way back down to get the next, and then again, and again, etc... It only seems to happen during a lesson.
Usagi and Christian also noticed this issue.

Similarly, this other issue just started to happen. I was attempting to clean up a Spanish thread (not during a lesson) here: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/1299460
and for some reason, whenever I delete a post, I automatically get kicked to this post:

Leandro_0311 "cual es la diferencia entre men y man?"

Which is the top post for users, but not the top post for mods/staff. Given the amount of deleted posts in that thread, scrolling back down through 50+ posts to get back to the ones that I'm trying to delete gets annoying and I'm less likely to keep at it.

If this could get adjusted to the way it "normally" is, that would be great. Thanks in advance!

Edit: This seems to be happening elsewhere now too. Just happened in the french forum, but didn't shoot me to the top or to the top post. A random post near-ish the top. If it helps any, Chrome Version 32.0.1700.107 m

Thanks, we're aware of this issue and it will be fixed on Monday :)


Any progress so far? It's really tedious to clean up discussions at the moment.


Tell me about it! This should be fixed either today or tomorrow.


I went in again last night and it wasn't difficult to clean. It loaded a lot more quickly. I think it still springboarded me up, but, I can't clearly recall (running on major lack of sleep).


Thank you Hohenem and Luis!
