Trouble 'retrieving stream'??
I cant access my activity stream and my friends profiles. Help plz?? :(
P.S. whoever is the one voting down all the posts plz STOP IT -_-
I get this too from time to time, when it says "Trouble retrieving Activity stream" or something close to that. It eventually gets worked out. Lack of such a message can signal participation in an A/B test. Of which, there is no way to opt in/out of. Duolingo tests a lot of different ideas using A/B tests. Most are temporary.
If it is any comfort, just discovered that mine is doing it too:
It'll return. :)
Thanks for the info. Now I know I haven't been banned or anything. I've heard of some people getting banned, and I'd hate to be one of them, since I haven't done anything wrong. =)
Mods can't just go and ban whoever they please. (Though, some repeat troublemakers really like to spread that rumor.) Some can apply temporary limitations on accounts that repeatedly violate the guidelines. However, it is Staff who has full control over applying permanent limitation and bans. If you haven't already read them, it might help reduce anxiety to get familiar with the guidelines, you can find them here: http://www.duolingo.com/guidelines. :)
Thanks a lot. Since I'm not even involved in any community discussion or anything on my learning account, I doubt it would even be noticed by mods. XP
Sorry, I'm just a little paranoid of such things. Thanks again! ^-^
On the same page as you. As long as you don't spam, or posting unnecessary things, you should be fine. I like to think before posting,Is this necessary? Will this hurt someone?. I once was caught in the middle of an argument (about an age for joining DL). I actually backed out of the entire conversation, which is a better idea.
From experience. hope this helps you.
Thanks for the great advice. In real life, I tend to be quite assertive, so I try to tone it down online. ^.^;;
That's true. Usagiboy7, you and Lrtward are pretty much my favourite mods.
Oh, I suppose this is only logical, but access to other people's streams is limited or non-existent, too. If I click on someone I'm following, or even someone I'm not, I can see, at best, just a handful of recent posts, but more often nothing at all.
I hope Duo is better than Facebook at fixing it. My Facebook newsfeed was once stuck like this for months!
Funny thing is, I hardly even look at Duo's activity feed usually, but now I know I can't, it's like an itch that can't be scratched!
K, thanks. Right now the activity is up, but I can only see things from six days ago , but nothing from the past five days or more than six days back.
Only a slight change here. I'm no longer getting an error message, but the stream shows no content, just a prompt to "load more". Clicking on it, however, does nothing. That's with Windows 7 & Chrome.
If you go to home and back to the activity over and over again it will slowly give you more.
I still can't go very far down on other peoples profiles. It will only let me see recent things.
"Lack of such a message can signal participation in an A/B test." I was getting that message last night. Today I am not getting that message. So does this mean they are testing how users respond to having no activity stream? How do I let them know that I am displeased with not having this feature? They can't possibly be taking this away???
The A/B test might not be for the Activity stream itself. It may be for a new version of the rest of the website. They don't always port every feature over to a new test version of the website, until they are sure that it is the direction they want to go in. It saves some work and $$.
I don't know if you are in it or not. My error message didn't show up for about 30 seconds after I loaded the page this morning. Maybe it is the same for you?
I have the same problem. Just wait a while, it usually comes back after a while (rarely more than a few hours).
Well, yeah. The same thing's happening to my profile and my learning one. It's probably an A/B test again. DX
Just ignore it, Eli. It happens a lot here, unfortunately.
And get back to your schoolwork. -_-
The one affecting our accounts now could be, but not the one I've been experiencing for a month. The profiles don't even have the "There is an error with retrieving your stream" message with my other learning account. =/
Have it also. "There was an error retrieving your stream" on my profile. I tried reloading it, but then it came to a blank stream. This occurs sometimes.
Hm, I'm getting the stream, but it is only in the last 36 hours, such as my 3 posts on here. I guess starting over with the stream might be a little better for space.
Same here. You’re alone, IanMcFadden2005! Add some friends to see their activity. There is an error retrieving your stream..
Happening to me too right now! Thought I'd check for existing reports before starting a new moan about it. ;) Seems pretty widespread.
my activity stream is gradually returning... it now shows my activity stream from 5 months ago, when I translated some sentences in the article "The 430 Books in Marilyn Monroe’s Library: How Many Have You Read?"
