Just A Few Problems That You Guys Might Not Have Noticed

This is for duo but others are free to comment and up vote. And if you don't like, don't down vote just leave so others can still read it.

Just a little while ago there was a discussion that got deleted and it showed the 404 message, but for some reason it was not removed from the forums. Which kinda clog's up everything on the forums, please fix.

When I first joined duo there was a bug, and the bug was in the last question the'd ask you. But even if you got it right it'd say you got it wrong. A whole bunch of people in the discussion complained about it, I reported it and thought you fixed it. But my friend is now telling me it's still there, please fix.

Duo's gotten slower, and plenty of your users have said so. Please fix.

So the notification bar on the discussion part of duo updates to all the new notifications you get. But anywhere else it's still showing ones from yesterday! I have had lots of people agree with me on that. Please fix.

@MasterZsword I'm not sure if this is a problem, but awhile ago I didn't use Duolingo for two days. Instead of resetting my streak like it should, it remained the same number from when I last used Duolingo. I thought this was odd, so I did a lesson to see if the site would recognize my absence and set my streak to zero. However, my streak increased as if I never left. I'm not complaining since it was advantageous to me, but I was wondering if anyone else experienced such a situation. I didn't buy a streak freeze (I've never bought one before) or did anything special that would have held my streak. Ah, it could just be me, but who knows. ^ ^

@amyharryhollie
Also speaking exercises aren't working! Whenever you click on the microphone to speak it automatically fails you.

And this is the last one, I have 3 stars on all my labs and it won't unlock the second set. No one has had this same problem but please fix.

Thank you for listening and soon enough fixing the problems.

Lots of thanks,

Myah.

You might want to put this in the troubleshooting forum. It will get the attention of those looking for problems to fix. You don't need to make a new discussion, but click on edit and change the subject in the upper left hand corner of the screen from Duolingo English to Troubleshooting.

Yeah, this is another problem that no one seems like they can fix. There is no trouble shooting forum choice, so I have just stopped tell mods because it won't work.

I access Duolingo on a laptop, as opposed to a phone. I am not sure what to do if you use Duolingo on your phone. Whenever I first make a discussion, the troubleshooting forum doesn't show up as an option the first time. I have to edit it and when I hit edit mode, then the troubleshooting option shows up. Good luck.

I don't use my phone either, I use my computer. You jump to a lot of conclusions! Lol.

Yeah, that is kinda weird. I'll put it on the bored maybe duo can fix it.

Well, it was only one time, so I don't think it's a huge problem, unless many others have experienced the same thing. Other than that, it could have just been a rare occurrence.

Good summary. I've seen large numbers of all of these complaints recently.

I agree with jolynnedougherty, you should edit your original post and use the drop-down list at top left to change the topic from "Duolingo" to "Troubleshooting" so that it is more likely to get the attention of folks that can actually fix it.

If you don't have "Troubleshooting" as an option, go to Discussion and then at the right there is a list of the forums you follow. Click the "Edit" button and add the Troubleshooting forum to your list of subscriptions.

I have experienced many discussions deleted, but none that were still on the forums! That is funny:) I hope you can have your questions/requests answered!
