All lessons suddenly full strength and then checkpoint strange behaviour

A few days ago all my Russian lessons suddenly became full strength 9I had several on a much lower level) and have not decreased since. Strange.

Then I did a test for a shortcut. I had still two topics to learn before the checkpoint. I succeeded, but now the checkpoint is passed, but nothing changed, I still have to do those two topics to enable the topics after the checkpoint. Even stranger.

Proof of the second point (have just finished one of the remaining topics): http//

I received huge number of downvotes soon after I posted this in the Duolingo in English Topic (on my mobile phone there was no Troubleshooting in the drop down menu for Pick a Discussion Topic on the left). Advise if something is wrong with my report.

  1. There are many upgrades ongoing in the background and this certainly looks like a side effect. (And please change your password if the first point looks like the skills might have been done by someone else)
    Please submit a bug report to inform the team.
  2. Troubleshooting questions usually get downvoted in the main forums, partly because they shouldn't be there, party because of nothing. I personally think downvoting is a bad idea here, and users should be informed to move the post. Your question is fine!
