Can't Strengthen Skills?

Okay, so I've been using the DuoLingo app, and after a few days, I noticed that some of my skills are under gold level, yet whenever I try to strengthen them by either clicking the strengthen button after clicking the skill, or clicking the dumbell button, I would complete the course without earning back my progress....it this some sort of glitch/bug?

Thanks for your feedback

I had to switch from my android phone to an ios device (specifically an ipad) to fix this. I assume their android servers are down.

So, you think they'll be up again? if it's just a server issue, I can probably wait.

I'd like to say so, you should contact their support and check again periodically. I dont think theres any website you can use to see if their specific servers are up though.

sometimes i think it takes a couple times to refresh one strength bar but not always.
