what on earth happened to my German tree?

for some reason I have a level one in people 2? Never done it and I've got 24 skills popped up underneath it that shouldn't be available screenshots: https://sta.sh/224wavynrx5d

Anyone else had a similar thing and/or do you know where to get it sorted and returned to normal?

This is a widespread issue for many users on many courses, unfortunately. To make things easier for everyone by keeping all reports in one place, can you keep your posts about it on this discussion (the first I could find about this bug)? Thanks!

Also, as mentioned in that discussion, I suggest you fill out a "Bug Report" form (with as much detail as you can, cf. text in this form), those forms being read by staff.

While they will not answer it directly (well, probably with some exceptions ;) ), because they can't answer each one, they nevertheless use them (among other criteria) to prioritize their list of bugs to be fixed according to the number of Bug Report forms received for each bug.

So the more of us who report it like that, the sooner it’ll be looked at.


this happend to me as well but not as badly as your tree https://www.duolingo.com/comment/27542944


Hi, just noticed I have 26 lessons unlocked in Dutch, 2 of them on higher levels as well. It's very frustrating, as I was keeping it under control, any ideas if we can indeed undo this?


I was only in Section 2 of my Spanish tree, and now all kinds of Sections and lessons have opened up. I've submitted a bug report, and made another post in this thread as well.


This has happened to me too. I wonder if they have been fiddling with the order of the tree or something?

I have level two in People 2 so I wonder if that used to be further down the tree and I did it a while ago. Now with the new order, rather than take that away the tree has just bugged out big time! Possibly?


This also happened on my SPANISH tree - some of the sections (Basics 1, Basics 2, Possession, etc) have COMPLETELY disappeared!! Lessons that I completed in Section 1 or 2 are now in Section 4 - which I had not reached yet.... Family 1 has moved from Section 2 to Section 1. What is happening??? Other lessons are just GONE... I'm very upset - as I'm sure others are also. I hope they figure out what is going on!


Might be the new Spanish tree. 52 new sections, all in the first half of the tree.


I'm okay with new sections - but I'm still bothered that I have lessons that have completely disappeared....


I noticed that, too. Thought it was just me! :-)
