can't follow people
Not that it means a whole lot anymore, but I've tried to follow a few people in recent days, and when clicking the button, it does switch to "Following." However, upon returning to their profile page, the button is unchecked, and they aren't added to the leaderboard. Anybody else having this problem?
I was having the same problem.
The followed person also doesn't come up on the leaderboards.
Edit: I see you have added that they aren't added to the leaderboard.
I had called it the "scoreboard" originally, but when you posted I realized that might have been causing confusion :)
i just found someone suggesting that you need at least a one day streak to follow people: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/24296690/People-are-unable-to-follow-friend-me
check the answer given by Dellfis. im going to try that now
fascinating; thank you
It is indeed possible that I had no active streak when I posted this thread but had one when the problem appeared resolved.
Question, Do you need the persons' username in order to follow them? And also, Do I need to do something special in order to have the choice of following them? :(
The I tried to follow you to check and the same thing happened to me. Maybe Duolingo is now going to erase any evidence of streams, and I guess that would include leaderboards. That's a shame; it was a real motivator. Of course, it could just be temporary, like a glitch or an A/B test... but if it is a test, this is really something I don't want removed.
I'm also currently having the same problem. I can't seem to follow a friend of mine. What could be the issue?
I've just discovered this issue after not using Duo for a while. I can't follow someone back who's just followed me. I'm having the exact same problem piguy3 is having.
Any admins on here that can help?
im also having this exact problem. friends can follow me, but i can't follow anyone back...
