Very Strange Tree Glitch

https://youtu.be/S1A8Cx7lG-Q

So, I went to the English from Dutch tree and decided to test out of a section with things I already knew. I did it, and came back to my regular Dutch from English tree and see that "Calendar" already is at crown level 2. There were indeed questions about the seasons, months, etc. in the quiz for the test out in the English from Dutch tree but I was a bit shocked to see it come over into the other tree. It had skipped over three topics that I hadn't even started yet, so I decided to start on "body" which was one of the three skipped. After one round of "body", what you see in the video occurred. So many topics are unlocked now and it even says I've done something in "Health 1" which is so far away from where I was previously.

This isn't necessarily a negative thing for me, but I just thought it was interesting and wanted to share.

Same problem with my Norwegian tree. 10 skills suddenly unlocked with 2 crowns on the last skill.

Many other people are having this problem. I just checked a few of my trees and it seemed to have happened to my Czech tree! A bunch of my skills are purple and one of them is blue and I don't recall ever having touched them. Very strange...lets hope it gets fixed soon.

Same here with my German tree! I was 1/4 down and one skill that's halfway through the tree has now 3 crowns. One checkpoint was passed and 23 new skills are open now.

It's happening to a lot of people apparently. Maybe it's just a general glitch and will go back to normal soon.

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.

Hi Trofaste, I think I discovered another problem, concerning People 2 (the skill that had a glitch the other day and then was fixed). When I unlocked the row just now, People 2 unlocked itself to back to level 1, even though I haven't done it yet. The rest of the row is purple as usual.

Hi lovele4rnin-, could you send a bug report about that (cf. the link in my previous comment)?

Happened to me on Russian. Suddenly People 2, previously greyed out underneath the row I'm working on, says level 1 now. Hope they fix it soon!
