The bonus skills for Norwegian are not supposed to be available yet (due to technical limitations), and unfortunately bug out for most of those able to buy them.

Will the ingots be returned? (funnily, even though I bought the new skills I can still buy them again, yikes!) Will the Progress Quiz will be back? It disappeared for me once the two skills were introduced. When will the skills be introduced for real? Sorry for so many questions! :P

Well, I'm impressed, however there's no need to be rude and I'd rather have the question about Progress Quiz answered.

I'm with you -- I wish they'd notify us about the disappearing Progress Quiz. I went to the "store" one day and it was just gone. Most evil: on the website, there's a "Quiz History" option on the dropdown menu, but it gives a 404. Rude...

Persistent searching turned up this thread of equally grumpy users: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/22560391

It is clear that whole sections of Duolingo are being ripped out of the program without regard to whether they are popular or helpful. Piece by piece the Duolingo experience is being deliberately devalued. Why is this happening? It is hard to say, but it's now become so general it is obviously policy. I think it may be in order to shed users and then to close down the whole operation ... rather in the way that train services are removed piecemeal from a branch railway line the company wants to close.... with the eventual excuse that it "wasn't being used." Does this sound extreme? Look around these forums. The destruction is happening everywhere. There are a lot of grumpy people out there, and with good reason.

Oi... Why the hell?? :(((( I've never used it yet :( (In my stupidity I was scared that I will get lousy score and promised myself to check only after I learn more to get a good score and now I will not have a chance) What do they even care.. They could've just left it as it was, not upgrading or anything but not taking it away from us :( I'm so mad :(

@effyleven WHAT?!? Don't say that! No, nonononononoooo..

They can't do this.. I was already sad when it turned out the Norwegian course won't have flashcards like for example Spanish has, I was sad that immersion is so hidden and I'm still not sure how do I use it (and sure that is not user-friendly), then I was mad when the Quiz disappeared, and now I'm terrified by what you say :o Why would they do it? Duolingo is such an amazing project, why do they "change" it?? :((((

Thankfully it's okay now. I did 2 lessons on mobile, and now checked in chrome, it works. There is tinycards ad after I finished the lesson. I haven't seen that before. maybe they were adding that.

Deliciae, I cannot get the Nynorsk lesson module to open, despite it having downloaded to my tree, apparently correctly.. Is the right place to grizzle about it in "Problem with Norwegian." If so, how do I get there, please. Thanks.

the issue is already addressed in the top comment here.. (the whole thread is about the issue with Nynorsk!!) - please read comments before "grizzling", Duo asks for it on every lesson thread, please do it here as well the skills are not ready yet, it's a bug, read the top comment

Okay. So the fact that Nynorsk appeared was the bug, not the fact that it wouldn't open? Very well. Thank you. I get it now.

So, perhaps you can help with my other problem, which is this...?

Word tile exercises in phone app are being presented in a pre-completed condition, with all the words, in the right order, pre-positioned on one giant tile. There is nothing for me to do with exercise except hit "check" and hope the next one isn't similarly buggy. This fault seems to be proliferating, with more and more consecutive exercises being afflicted. Your suggestions, ma'am? (And thank you for the help you have already given me.)

Wow, first time calls me ma'am, I'm honored x3 Did that thing happen to you many times? I had it once, but it just were words that did not matter so much. I just need to say I'm not admin or anything and I only speak from the experience as a user. But the admins don't have time to help everyone so i try to help where I can. I have no idea what may be the problem (and personally I think the app is awful because the tile exercises are way too easy - some skills I can do on app without any problem and then on desktop I struggle a lot; I suggest not using it unless you just want to keep your streak the easy way, but of course different strokes for different folks). I think however you should find a thread for problems with the app or search for the particular for the Norwegian on app rather than generally the Norwegian course. And search thoroughly because if you just start a new thread out of blue chances are you'll be ignored or get non significant answers. Of course if you don't find the answer or at least thread to your problem start a new one then. But if it haven't been happening for long it may be just another bug. Duo is non-profit and huge so bugs happen. Sorry I couldn't help you. Have a nice day!
