Not my daily goal record!

March 11... I get on Duolingo and the daily goal record that comes up is DEFINITELY not mine. At least my streak isn't ruined or lost, but I'm curious what happens when I attempt to do my daily insane 50. Software malfunctions sometimes can have a potential to destroy everything in an instant. I didn't think such a glitch was even possible... has anyone else had this happen with their site?

Same thing for me this morning. My first thought was a daylight savings glitch but it really doesn't make sense.

Yes, daylights savings time always screws things up.

I don't know, but sometimes it doesn't give me any points when I test out levels. It makes me mad if I'm trying to get a certain amount of points.

De nada. Any clue as to what's going on here? Never had anything like this happen before... I prize my daily streak BIG TIME and would hate to lose it if somehow my lingots don't buy me streak freezes!

Not at all. :(

if somehow my lingots don't buy me streak freezes!

is your account equipped with a streak freeze?

Your extended account says you last time reached your daily goal on "1520743266000.0" (expressed in thousandths of seconds) which, if my converter is correct, is 11/03/2018 5:41:06 UTC.
Is this UTC time today or tomorrow in your timezone?

In any case, to avoid any risk, I'd earn 50 more XPs right now. ;)

EST United States. ALWAYS equipped with a streak freeze, just hope it goes to my account, because whoever has the one popping up on my site doesn't maintain streaks (where's the fun in THAT?) Will knock off fifty more just to see what sticks to the wall; don't care if someone else gets them, but we see.

When you start a new discussion you don't get the opputunity to put it in Troubleshooting. I just experienced the same thing!

March 11, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/jrikhal

Indeed, but if you create a new discussion from a given forum/while being looking at a given forum, it'll publish it (by default) in said forum.
And, for me at least, Troubleshooting forum is by default in the list of forums I see in the list on the right, independently of being subscribed to it or not.

That's right! When you have been using troubleshooting ones, it appears to the right,but not before!!!

Just tried doing a block of ten and it added to what I'm guessing is somebody else's tally. It's all messed up... it said I had 43 points already (I had done no lessons yet today) so "I" ended up with 53, which constitutes a daily goal reached for me. Yet my streak did not add a day. I don't mind somebody getting ten free points, but at this rate I'll lose my streak. Come to think of it, everyone else with this glitch will lose theirs also. Yikes!

Not if your account is equipped with a streak freeze.
It doesn't solve the issue but at least it protects you.

IF I can keep buying them.

I assumed it moved yesterday's figures to today and I need to make sure I do 50 more today.

March 11, 2018

https://www.duolingo.com/Kathy508728

Ok, I think I see what you are saying. At least I haven't lost my streak yet, only a day of it. And the double my lingots bet is still intact even if not on the right day.

We'd best do what jrikhal says and get in our dailies and hope for the best.

I have never ever gotten credit for 50 xp points in a day and I almost always surpass 50

I reckon it was just a DST switch thing after all... ¡Supongo que me preocupo demasiado!

No, you did well IMO.
Better safe than sorry!
