Incorrect daily reminder notification

Today I marked several sentences in "immersion" section as correct - as a result I earned some points and my streak changed from 187 to 188. But then I receive this message: Alt picture

It seems only the points received from lessons or from translation sentences in immersion count.

Also I have "only" -7129 points away from my next goal :)

Haha, well this is a very odd situation! Anyways, hi Artgor! Are you using the computer? I don't believe I have seen this notification before. Also, you should definitely earn points by correcting and upvoting sentences if you made an effective change (adding a comma or period won't give you a point). I think your points only turned out a bit odd because of this occurrence. Can I have some information on this? :)

Hello! I use a computer. And i didn't correct any sentence. As i wrote in the opening post, I just marked several sentences as correct. At my translation level I receive 5 points for each sentence I mark as correct. So I received ~20-30 points, my streak changed to 188. And then I received this notification.

Oops! Sorry about my mistake, but where did you see this notification? I have definitely done immersion before, but I don't believe I have ever seen this. I'm not sure if it will help, but I suggest you occasionally clear your cache and cookies, as it will ensure that less problems occur when you use the internet. Try logging off and back in to see if you can see better changes in points. Hope this helps! :)

Ahh, got it. I had turned them off because I couldn't handle the emails, but did my tips help?

I have already tried it several times. It seem the problem is in logic, not in cache: usually the amount of points to reach the next level is calculated as: amount of points necessary for the next level - current amount of points

as I have no more levels to obtain (25 is max) the logic calculates: amount of points necessary for the next level (level 25) - current amount of points 30000-37120=-7120 And this is the reason for the negative result.

Well, then I guess you already got your problem solved? Err...nice. ;)

It is not that it is solved. It is just that I understand the cause of the problem :)

Oh geez, I think I should leave your logic to DuoLingo support. It's too much for me. ;) I guess you just gotta wait for more levels.
