Glitch with messages duolingo

Gday. I have noticed that Duolingo has a glitch where it says there's more messages or upvotes/downvotes than there really is. Just looking at some quick examples: A discussion I just looked at said there was 3 comments when really there were only 1. Another one said there were 2 messages on the scroll place but when I actually clicked on it there were 3. Does anyone know why this happens and if Duolingo will be a fixing it soon?

Thanks cluney2!

I don't know why it happens. But, the tech team are aware of it from my understanding. It's lower on the priority list than the bugs that are having more immediate impact on the learning experience. So, might be a while until its fixed. But, they are moving as fast as they can. I imagine they have to juggle fixing things while still trying to meet their major project goals for this quarter. I am looking forward to when Duolingo can expand the number of staff. I know the current staff are working full speed.

Thanks. It doesn't affect much my work. But sometimes when I want to just check weather I've been a messaged then I have to go into the 'discussion' and check instead of just looken on the outside. That is only frustration :D

I share your frustration. But, there is so much going on, I've mostly just tucked it into my back pocket for another day. :P

I think you misunderstood me. I was trying to say that I find it fine that it's a problem and that there's only one problem that is slightly annoying is why I think you don't need to focus on it. Sorry if I didn't write that very well that was my intention.

Oh, no that's how I read it. It was my reply that was not clear then. :)

So we were both blind but now we see.

Nah, my godmother is blind with no loss of perception. So, mostly text communication is just challenging. ;)

Posted a whole other discussion about it, but only one of these bugs have been patched.

Things take time, and sometimes more time that we would prefer.

Forgot to ask you, what are these banana Twinkies things?

The programmers recently made changes to the forum code and since then there have been a lot of bugs/glitches reported. One can only assume the new code was not fully tested before being applied to the live system.

I think that this new 'update' feels much more of a 'downdate'.

Hi Cluney,

I hope they will fix it soon, too. It is very hard to follow discussions at the moment. Not only because of that glitch. The bell also still doesn't "ring".

best regards Angel

Me too. So you have to go into every single discussion to see weather someone has commented. Frustrating. My opinion is that they should be both fixed but one quite quickly since then you would be able to see if you've been commented.

They are getting there. The fix list is prioritized. As a moderator, functionality in one of my tools has been compromised since the bugs went skittering about the domain. I've just gotten it back this morning. (Many thank yous to Staff! <3).

Yay. I'm glad that it's getting done.

i happened to me and i think you have to get duo plus to fix all the glitches

disneygirl55, these glitches are not an attempt to get people to purchase Duolingo Plus and getting Duolingo Plus will not fix them.
