Lesson dropped me

You dropped me out on the last answer of a session.I tried to fit a lesson before bedtime and was rewarded with a drop. When I spend my time on a lesson, I want to be rewarded for the time. Duolingo is good, but it's insensitivity to the needs of the learner hurt its usability. I quit for the day because of the drop.

Hi rkelbaugh? What exactly do you mean by "drop"? Do you mean that you lost all your hearts? Or that the page stopped loading? Don't quit because of a single loss! Practice makes perfect! :)

I was in the process of calling the final question and had two hearts remaining and suddenly I was showing the lesson start page and with no credit for completing the strengthen exercise.I was on a laptop computer

Must have accidently hit refresh or the backspace button.

that is entirely possible, but the system needs to be more robust than that.

You can't just stop the computer's F5 function

It is entirely possible that it was a slip of a finger. Well, I'm afraid I can't exactly help you, but if this problem happens again then be sure to post it! Then that would definitely be a problem. Sorry. :(

Were you using Duolingo online or on one of our apps? What is your internet connection like? It's possible that impacted the lesson. Let me know some more details. Would love to troubleshoot this for you!

You must have been inactive for a while.

No, as a matter of fact, I had completed to where I was in about 10 minutes. That being said it was 9:30 at night and I really wanted to do the lesson and close up shop for the night.

it's happening to me today. Every time I use the num keypad shortcut to do a TILDA over the n, the lesson drops me with no credit. It's happened three times. I have re-logged in and it still persists.
