Why has my crown level gone down?
i've been using Duolingo for several years. When they switched me to crowns, i came out at all Level 3 in Spanish. I practice for a while with new crown system and moved up to Level 4 in a few skills. Then suddenly, after a 2 or 3 week break, about half my tree was down-graded to Level zero (the top half of tree only).
What's going on? In Duolingo FAQ they promise that this won't happen.
You mean they sent half my tree down to Level zero (because yes i do have the purple circles in half the places). Why would they do that? It forces me to slowly go through all the basic stuff again before i can get to the somewhat challenging material. Did the same thing happen to everyone?
I am not completely sure what you mean, but i think the answer is no. I had already been switched to crowns 6 months ago, and i was using the new system. When they first switched me, they gave me all Level 3 in Spanish. Then i practiced with that for a while and I had moved up to Level 4 in some skills, all the rest were Level 3. Then the sudden drop to zero.
In addition to the crown system, Duolingo is also rolling out a new version of the Spanish tree itself which rearranges/combines/adds new skills. This can lead to a loss in crown levels.
If this is not the case, see the link below on reporting the issue:
I hope that helps! :)
Well, the problem is that i feel i have already learned the Level zero stuff (i've been using duolingo spanish almost daily for 2.5 years). I was certainly progressing, and now they send me back to level zero (without any access to the material i had been working on). Frustrating.
