At least in the incubator, we may need to wait a minute or two until we can actually start. After a record-breaking 979 days in phase 1 that doesn't seem so bad.

Edit: It took more than two minutes but finally it's available.

The really weird thing is, the one person for whom it is definitely working (see that pretty Romanian flag!) has a profile that comes up as a 404 error.

Yup! Did you change your username recently? I think people have had that issue before. Sometimes it takes the url a while to catch up. Or at least, that's my best guess.

I was gonna be cunning and spy on your profile, but clearly that ain't gonna happen!

Well there's 286 lessons in total and around 60 or so of them are in the first checkpoint. Has the Romanian discussion option appeared for you? Romanian still says "notify when available" on the course list for me but managed to work through the settings option :/

The discussion forum has just appeared since I last checked (yes, I have been checking discussion, course page, settings for the last half hour, it's sad LOL), so I'm hoping that's a good sign! How's the view from the other side?

Actually, if you go to settings, you can click languages and say that you want to learn Romanian and it will redirect you to the course!

EDIT: Apparently it's too early for that as well, oh well. Try again in maybe a couple minutes I hope

EDIT 2: looks like it works for some people

Hmm. I can access the forum, but no one yet seems to have commented on the sentences [Edit: And now there are comments!].

https://www.duolingo.com/topic/938/sent

I am unable to get into the course itself, and have been refreshing both pages for more than half an hour. (The server could lighten its load if it let me in!)

I may be checking out Romanian courses on Memrise at this moment. >_>


Edit: And 5 minutes later I'm there via the Learning language page.
