Wasted time...

I was practicing Japanese, despite having a million other things to do, when I decided to strengthen "Intro 3"

When I pressed the skill, then pressed "strengthen" the system suddenly reverted to the old web design. I had no problem with this, so I continued the lesson.

I finished the lesson, and when it showed me the usual, "You now have 30XP!" and things, the tab suddenly disappeared. I went back on, and the web design was back to normal, and it appeared like I had never strengthened any skill whatsoever. I didn't have the XP. All off it was lost.

I feel like I wasted time, even though I did strengthen it; The system simply refused to accept it.

I hope this bug will soon be fixed.

I keep seeing posts from users who were certain they had met their daily goals but lost their streaks anyway. Maybe it has to do with a glitch like the one you’re describing.

I wish I could experience this bug. It sounds pretty interesting. I missed it last time, a week or two ago or whenever it was, when people were talking about something like this then too.

You certainly could see the browser in the old web design, but you couldn't gain any XP.

FWIW, even if the system has not registered your work, you've still practised the language. Think of it as a disappointment rather than a waste of time ;)

It is disappointing when you have a streak going and the next day you wake up to a 0 streak.
