Weakest words

Sorry if this has been asked before. I understand that some of the completed skills lose strength but I am very confused how they are chosen. They seem to be random...in fact the ones that go down are often ones that I have found easy and made no or few mistakes on. Can anyone explain it to me please? I seem to be having to redo ones all the time and not doing new ones! Thanks

This is my favourite workaround:

Yes, there have been MANY threads about those issues - I even opened my own - they have been unanswered ever.

It's buggy anyways....

  • Either NEW words are not (always) added
  • strengthened words are not updated, as "last_practiced" is not correctly updated for the most cases
  • strengthen buttons don't poll for weak / difficult or ~1 year old words from your user database

And the best:
3-4 grammar skills are missing as they are not contained in the vocabulary overview stream, so all these learned words (from lessons/skills) can NOT be found in the words tab, wtf?!?
