Great news!!!

Though the main site doesn't seem to have sync'd with the Incubator. I still get get 99% and a notification button ("Notifícame cuando esté disponible"). Just wait a bit I guess.

I am laddering in that direction, so the ladder is being built as I climb it. So far it goes English Spanish German French Portuguese (as of now).

In the future, I plan to go onto Italian for Portuguese speakers (currently 91%). Not sure where to go after that - perhaps back to the beginning with Spanish for Italian speakers (currently 71%). Though it will look less like a ladder and more like a hamster wheel!

It seems like you posting about the non-sync made it sync :)

10.7k learners within 3 hours is an impressive uptake rate (approximately one person signing up every second).

I don't know why but these courses for other than English speakers always seem to start at around 10k learners (see here and here for example). You couldn't even switch to this one on the course page when it already had 10,5k learners in the incubator.

I don't think it happened for Guaraní or Esperanto for Spanish, e.g. https://www.duolingo.com/comment/17450434

Traue keinen Zahlen, die Du nicht selbst gefälscht hast :-)

Don't trust any numbers, you have not faked yourself :-)
