Found a user with negative xp!

I was looking through the comments of the new events update, and saw moderator Usagiboy post a link to this discussion. I looked at the person's profile (here) and they have negative 42 xp in German. Weird right??

They're level one with 102 xp to go to level 2, with the maximum being 60!! What is going on here?

It was due to a weird quirk caused by Immersion. If you scroll down the comments in This Discussion I posted a screenshot and explanation of the situation that was causing it.

I'm only speculating, but I'd guess he got the 42XP by rating sentences in immersion, then reset his tree (removing all XP), then un-rated the immersion sentences (removing the 42XP previously gained). I think the way in which Duolingo used to work would have allowed this to happen.

That is weird, and that discussion is hilarious.

By the way, usagiboy7 is moderator, not admin

Must be a bug, or something like that.

Hope the user doesn't mind that there is a discussion gossiping about him.

He probably quit years ago.

Oh good point. Like I commented below, that post was three years ago.

I wonder if it was some glitch and he re-set his tree, considering you're not supposed to have access to the main forum until you're level 2...strange indeed.
