Not Getting Any Notifications?

I don't think I've been getting notifications for anything for the past 4 or so days because I checked a discussion and someone replied to me and I didn't get a notification. I tried refreshing the page, shutting down, and logging in and out, and nothing has worked. Has anyone else experienced similar problems?

Edit: Aaah! I can't find this post under the new discussion section! I had to go into my history to make sure it posted. Can anyone else find it?

Double edit: Hmm. This post just popped up after 2 minutes of refreshing... odd... The Duolingo status seems to be working completely fine though.

Hi Carmela,

yes Duo has problems at the moment. Please have a look here. This hopefully answers your questions.

The auto-follow for discussions you've created or interacted with isn't working right now. So, make sure you go back and click the green "Follow discussion" button on the upper right hand corner of the discussions you want notifications for. I keep forgetting to do this too.

Also, some discussions are not showing up for me too. For instance, one of my discussions never showed up in the Popular tab, even thought it should have because of votes and participation.

As for creating discussions, all of mine go to 404. So, I copy the content before posting. Then, I redirect to the forums. It usually shows up within two minutes and a couple of page refreshes.

Things are buggy right now. Staff are working to try and correct things in the background though. So, we just gotta sit tight for now. :)

what do you mean by "if you follow the discussion you will get notifications"? I've never followed discussions and still always got notifications

Same here, when people replied to my comments, I got notifications, which isn't happening anymore.
