[Duolingo Web] Achievements

So I just got several pop-ups (modals) with achievements I earned (200Xp a day, overachiever (learning on Sa/Su, and all-skills-golden). Stupidly I forgot to take screenshots and now I can't find anything about them anywhere anymore i.e. no overview of achievements (earned). Did somebody else have them too and/or knows anything about them? Could be an A/B test? The ones I got looked great and I must admit I'll "chase" any (reasonable) challenges/achievements they think of to collect them all hehe =) Looking forward to more of this!

Great find! I updated the list above with your data, hope you don't mind =)

I don't mind, of course.

How do you keep on holding such a HUGE streak?

May 18, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/FieryCat

I just made sure I gained one more habit.

I have not actually done this yet (though I did do the others, but not today):

November 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/BaroldThe1

I got this one as well. Strangely, I didn't spend anything that I know of.

November 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Jersebas

You have a formal outfit, a streak freeze and at least some wagers... guess those are counted as well =)

November 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/FrenchByte

The lingot leprechaun helped me get the one-star version.

Does "Give Lingot count towards the Big Spender stars? Or do you have to spend them at the store?

January 23, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/Renardo_11

Good question. According to my experience “Given” lingots do not count; I use the “give lingot” function a lot and it never changes my “spending” score. On the other hand my 7-day wagers do count, though that's not really spending but “investing” ☺. Paradoxical.

Is there any way to know how far along one is for this achievement? I have both outfits for the owl but only at 2 stars, and there's really not a lot of things to spend lingots on tbh. :/

Hi,

I always had them on my tablet (Android) they changed serveral times the look of the achievements, but the screen shot shows the current look.

https://www.duolingo.com/Jersebas

Did you find some overview somewhere?

November 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/FieryCat

I got this information through a request to the server. I can get such information for your account if you wish. But there is no any description there.

November 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Jersebas

I got this which look to be my achievements:

"achievements":["streak_1","streak_2","streak_3","completion_1","completion_2","completion_3","spending_1","spending_2","spending_3","items_1","time_1","time_2","time_3","social_1","social_2","gold_skills_1","gold_skills_2","gold_skills_3","xp_1","xp_2","xp_3","perfect_1","perfect_2"]

But I don't see anything about counts or tier levels?!?

November 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/FieryCat

It is the old version of the list of achievements, now they use the new version. Have a look at this: https://www.duolingo.com/2017-06-30/users?username=Jersebas

https://www.duolingo.com/Pruechelan

I got pop ups today, and some of them were ones I had but don't currently and some of the ones I've seen are ones I've had but don't currently and didn't pop up, I'd really like to know if there's a place to check all the ones you have.

I got the 20 shiny one, even though I reset all my courses a week ago, and I'm not up to 20 skills yet and I got the overachiever 100 even though I haven't done that in more than three months, but even though about a month ago I had a nearly 300 day streak, I didn't get any streak ones??? I also didn't get overtime or clubs even though both I know I've done recently enough. and I got sharpshooter 1, so that one they weren't tracking before.

If anyone finds out where to see an overall list that would be ideal.

November 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Jersebas

One of FieryCat's posts mentions a way to get to some raw data which includes your achievements. I haven't got pop-ups for all the ones I'm supposed to have either, and so far I haven't seen an "official Achievements tab" or something yet.

November 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/FrenchByte

They aren't currently working too well. I should have gotten Sharp-Shooter Star One, but didn't get it. It may take time to update or work; it seems to still be A/B.

November 9, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Elin.7-1

Mine's updating fine tonight...I didn'y even need to refresh the profile tab. I'm up to 3/5...would have been 4 but I put a "t" on the end of "go" and got "got"....LOL

I don't see them on my web version. So, I'm thinking a/b test.

November 8, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/FrenchByte

There's a version of Shiny for 20 golden skills at the same time.

November 7, 2017

That was one of mine - and I forgot to take screen shots of them :o(

https://www.duolingo.com/7ga4Ktv4

what does before 8 am mean with the overtime? 6-8 or something? i'm always at it around 0-3 am so i'm never awake at that time... unless i am going to adjust my day-night rhytm specifically for that achievement i can never get the first star. plus the friends achievement will never be achieved cause i don't have any friends..

February 6, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/Woof.

Me too! That happened to me also!

November 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/FrenchByte

It has happened to several users, and 3 of us (including me) have already created discussions.

Staff here, please?

November 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Jersebas

I looked in my extended profile and found

"web_achievements":{"contexts":[],"treated":false,"destiny":"experiment","condition":"control","eligible":false}

So there is an A/B test with achievements I guess, although the strange thing is I don't seem to be in it =) Strange that I did get some pop-ups then... do you guys have the same values?

November 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Rhabarberbarbara

I think it showed up for you because your destiny is experiment, so you are supposed to be in it soon.

November 8, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Jersebas

I guess you're right, the value has changed now:

"web_achievements":{"contexts":[],"treated":true,"destiny":"experiment","condition":"experiment","eligible":true}

November 8, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/FrenchByte

How do you view the extended profile ?

November 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Jersebas

If you go to https://www.duolingo.com/users/FrenchByte you get a so called JSON file will all kinds of data for your account. Among them are some variables for different A/B tests (like the one I posted above). Some of these variables can be seen by everyone, others only show up for your own account. If you want to find something I suggest you use your browser's search-function =)

November 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Pruechelan

Mine also says false.

Next level (2 stars) is 5 perfect ones...

November 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/FrenchByte

So, 3 must be 10 perfect lessons, right? And they don't have to be in a row?

November 9, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/DuoDaniel2003

Hi. but where are these achievements?

November 25, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/FrenchByte

I got Overachiever for 100 XP in a day! Great job, good thing you got a screenshot!

November 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Jersebas

So that achievement has 3 levels: 50 XP = 1 star, 100 XP = 2 stars, 200 XP = 3 stars

November 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/FrenchByte

200 or 150? How can you be sure? But 200 seems likely.

November 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Jersebas

Because I got the 200 one myself =)

November 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/FieryCat

^1 Somehow my tier 3 level values for some achievements differ from FieryCat's ones?!?

My Russian tree has 79 skills; your Norwegian - 117.

November 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Jersebas

Thanks for pointing that out! Changed it in the list

November 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/scarcerer

The tier values for completing a tree and having all skills golden probably depends on the tree you're doing. Since very few trees are if exact same length, it would be weird if the values didn't differ.

November 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Jersebas

I now have an overview of my achievements in the sidebar, and my user profile is updated with more information about all achievements I've unlocked: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/25133529

Can't see other people's achievements though.. (i.e. if I go to FieryCat's profile I see no achievements, but do see an updated layout)

What are the Wizard and the Shield for? I don't have those (not even blank ones!) Are they app based achievements?

Thx FC - have a tin of salmon on me!

November 23, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/FieryCat

Wizard is Wizard (items) from the list of the main post and Shield is Inner Circle (clubs). I dont know why they decided not to display these achievements. Your achievements:

added:
You probably right: The first one needs Weekend Amulet and the second one is for clubs. Both the things are only for app.

November 23, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Elin.7-1

Thanks FC - it's been a while since I read the main post....

I don't use the app at all (not even downloaded it) so I'm intrigued that I've gained a Wizard star!

Have a lingot for your trouble :o)

[Edit] Ah I see - I've equipped a streak freeze so 1 star, I have won several (9 or 10) double or nothing bets, but because I can't access a Weekend Amulet, they won't be counted! Hmmmm maybe I'll download and buy a WA just before I change my phone (I'm presuming I'd need to reinstall on a new phone?) LOL

November 23, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/FieryCat

Hmmmm maybe I'll download and buy a WA just before I change my phone (I'm presuming I'd need to reinstall on a new phone?) LOL

They correctly calculated everything: You are doing what they want you to do :D

November 23, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Elin.7-1

Chuckle I thought the same thing just after I posted it! My point was that I didn't mind downloading on a phone I was about to discard purely for the star...with no intention of installing it on my new phone! Then I thought really?! for a couple of stars! I have more important things in my life....chasing the sharpshooter third star is one thing, but streak stars???? ROFL

You can take the script here, it is called "DuoProfile".

Thank you

https://www.duolingo.com/FieryCat

There is no way to see these achievements on the desktop version currently. I use my own user script for that. Here are your achievements:

January 11, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/FieryCat

@FireCat please answer?

Which question? You cannot see these two achievements on desktop version except for using a special script. If you want to get the second and third stars for the wizard, you need buy weekend amulet that is available in the app only on Fridays and not for all versions (use the search). There is a workaround, but it does not make sense, because the achievement is still not displayed.

January 14, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/cyclonecasey

LINGOTS FOR YOU!! I get the club one not showing up but the streak freeze and wagers are on desktop as well? Aren't they? (I've never seen the amulet though) Can you tell me how to do the user script thing ?

I just need to spend some more lingots to get the final 3-star achievement, but I have no way to spend more lingots, other than by wagering 5 per week.

December 21, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/cyclonecasey

You could buy streak freezes, even if you don't particularly need them. Also, if you haven't already there are the bonus skills (I honestly have no idea how I've spent 200 lingots)

January 11, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/unavailable456

Ha, I didn't get any so far, maybe coz I strictly use the app version and got almost all the achievements out there already?

November 7, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Thomas.Heiss

BTW: The achievements are explained in more detail on the Android app.

You could install an Android emulator software like Bluestacks, NOX, VMWare (Android x64 image for VMWare V12/V14 workstation or player).

The same applies if you are interested to get tapping exercises - instead of typing (web) for the 1st-3rd learning sessions - but you want to practice on a PC/Windows/Mac with bigger screen.

Or: If you want to take part in an Android language club but you do not use a Smartphone.

https://www.duolingo.com/Thebenoch

I have gotten more than 100 xp many days in a row and the Overachiever badge doesn't register them. I also tried doing the practice without the timer to see if that caused the problem, but it still didn't register them for the overachiever badge.

December 4, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/Usagiboy7

Thebenoch, did you get all of those XP using the app? And, did your app sync with the servers before midnight? (Sometimes, there is a delay).

The badges are still being tested as a feature. So, things have been changing here and there. I'm not certain if you still need to get those points with the app or if XP gained on desktop version goes towards it too now.

December 6, 2017

I got this today. Too bad I had my sound off :)

January 9, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/Vicharian

It is a boost to motivation - I would not do the 200xp in a day otherwise

However, the Sharpshooter does not update. I am pretty sure I have more than 17!
