Practice not counting?

For the second time in a row, Duo has gotten to the end of the of the practice unit, stalled out and then just sent me back to the homescreen instead of showing that I gained XP.

Annoying, I agree. It happened to me a couple of times. I guess there is work currently done in the background, causing some gliches. I wish you all the luck.

Are you doing refresh on a whole skill ("leaf")? If so, and you find that skill/leaf won't be credited with XP OR turn back to gold, refresh the individual exercises within it, one at a time, instead of going for the whole thing. That usually (for me, always) "unsticks" it. It's a pain, but the individual lessons are usually much shorter, and redoing just the first couple usually mends it - you don't have to work through all of them. Hope I've explained it OK - if I haven't, please ask.
