Why did I lose 48 crowns when the program was upgraded?
I was in the middle of lessons when my program switched, and I lost 48 crowns.
I am at Level 24, well on my way to Level 25, and this happened.
I am going to reach 30000 xp long before I ever complete all the lessons, and I might never get back to 211 crowns. Why was this part of the switch?
zhizon - I lost a lot, Crowns, Lessons learned, Vocabs, a Golden Owl. I reported it as a bug - you can too - use this link: https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
the snowmaster - I reported it, you can too: https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
LegendaryAMG - This is a bug or just wrong to wipe out old accomplishments on the old tree - tell them it's wrong like I did - here is the Bug Report link - I'm hoping I am not the only one entering a bug on this. Thanks! Duolingo Support Center/Submitting a Request - Bug Report Form - https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
JohnDonela - just because you can rebuild lost crowns does not mean it's not a bug - I lost, crowns, lessons learned, Vocabs learned, a Golden Owl. I've bug reported it. You can too. here is the link for reporting bugs to DL https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
Rick392366 - Yes, it is the new tree, but, it should not diminish or delete a person's accomplishments with the old tree. Do you agree? No, the new tree is not that much better that you need to diminish what was accomplished in the old tree. This is demeaning, and demoralizing. Here is a link to the DL Bug Reporting. Please add your voice to stopping the removing of a person's accomplishments every time they upgrade a tree. I still did those 337 lessons, not the 255 lessons they said I did now, etc. I lost crowns, lessons, Vocabs, and my Golden Owl that I earned on the old tree. It is gone. Is that right? To take away 8 months of hard work because there is a new tree? And it is not that much different. I've taken some lessons and it is the same old thing.
is it not simply because lessons were updated and you no longer deserve crown 4 in a skill for example since the lesson is now harder?
Like how when crowns first came out, no one was given crown 4 or 5 in a skill because it was deemed no one had earned that because the difficulty was higher than what was available before crowns.
I'd be fine if they had just knocked my levels back a little. Take a 5-crown and make it a 2 or 3, depending on what they changed. But some of the skills that I know I had 5 crowns in are now reset completely to zero, not even 1 crown like when we switched to crowns.
merkavar: I lost crowns, lessons, lexemes, a Golden Owl - it is a bug. I reported it. You can too. Use this link https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
Johndonela - It is a bug - report it like I did: https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
I understand, and I'm excited there is new content. But skills that were had 5 crowns shouldn't have been completely reset to zero. I knew enough to complete the skill before, but now it's not enough for even one crown? I don't know know for sure how many crowns I had because that's not my focus, but the last number I noticed was 164 or 166. Now I'm at 126 with a huge number of skills with no progress. I haven't seen anything yet that tells how many new skills they added, so I can't tell how many of those I had already completed. I do the practice, too, so it's not just about getting crowns, but I do like to be able to see what I've already worked on.
Not having any warning about the update was not helpful, either. Duolingo should send out emails before important changes. Not everyone comes to the discussion boards on a regular basis. They're not even available in the app.
Well, then they really shouldn't have done that, should they?
There's no limit to the number of subjects. If they wanted to add harder words about, say, Health, why not leave the existing Health as it is, and add a subject called Health 2, instead of changing up Health and resetting everyone's crowns?
Merkavar ---just because DL has a new tree, does not mean you didn't accomplish much on the old tree - a new tree should not wipe out old tree accomplishments ------ I lost crowns, Lessons I learned, Vocabs I learned and the Golden Owl for reaching the bottom of the old tree. ==== it is a bug to not roll over old tree accomplishments. I entered a bug report and I invite all that have lost User Data, like I did to do the same. DL never said it was going to take back accomplishments because it was going to upgrade the tree - --- this is clearly a bug. --- use this link: https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
----I"ve looked at the new content on the new tree. same level of difficulty ----- the new tree crown equals the old tree crown. no difference . Duolingo may lose people over this, I know they are going to have people that were Plus accounts to change them to Regular accounts after this. It is demoralizing and wrong to give virual awards and then to take them back.
AmandaBeaty75 - I believe this is a bug to lose user data. I've reported it, because I've lost crowns, # of lessons accomplished, Vocabs learned, and my Golden Owl for reaching the end of the tree. I've created a Bug Report and so can you - here is the DL Bug Reporting Link ---- https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
LegendaryAMG -- MOD's will tell you that "this is all part of the new tree" - I say it is a bug to LOSE USER DATA, new tree should keep a users Data intact - I lost crowns, lessons, Vocabs, my Golden Owl, I reported it as bug and I suggest everyone that have lost data to report it too ----------------------------- How to report a bug to DL --------https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/requests/new ----------------- Because the new tree should not wipe your your accmplishments with the old tree. I still finished 337 lesson in the old tree - not 252 Lessons now showing. I learned 1620 lexemes - not the 1588 now showing. I earned 128 crowns - not the 101 crowns now showing. I did get to the bottm of the old tree - don't take that away from me. I still accomplished that.
JohnDonela - I've put in a new request https://www.duolingo.com/comment/27486431 that DL give an option on Tree 2.0, to allow those that want to continue on Tree 1.0, can do so. I don't mind having another Flag, nor do I mind if there are no MODs. I just hope they will allow thoses that want to, to finish Spanish 1.0.
