Fluency rating?

I started with a fluency rating of 14 and have been using duolingo for numerous weeks. It appears that the more I do the lower my fluency rating. How did that happen?

If you'd bother to do a bit of research, you'll quickly learn that no one who's been around more than six days gives the "fluency" rating any credence. It's a crap statistic. Ignore it.

Hi Wombatua, appreciate the info. Your comment about me bothering to do a bit of research seems a bit harsh.

Sorry you feel that way. Since this question gets asked at least seven times a day, it seems that one could do a bit of research before asking it yet again.

It sounds to me like you work for Duo Lingo and that is why you are in it so often and checking on comments. I do not work for Duo Lingo. I own different software, Rosetta stone, but have fallen in love with this software. I study with it almost every day. This software is far more enjoyable to use. This is the only issue I have found with this software which is quite impressive. I ran a software development team that had a who's who of the top 40 financial clients in the industry. I am impressed with the quality of this software. You say it gets asked 7 times a day, you must be looking at the comments quite often. Are you on the support team? If so, I would say that your replies are not very customer friendly.

yup, the fluency rating is a joke. Mine doesn't move when I use the mobile app, only when I use the web interface. I sat at 9% for two weeks, then went to 23% in one day. Ignore it.

Thank you all for your feedback. duolingo is so great. i thought it would be solid at the fluency rating as well. Oh well, can not be great at everything when it comes to building software. I love everything else.
