Message from a moderator

I received an email warning me about suspicious activity on my account. I don't understand how I got flagged for this because for the past year, I've mostly only been able to do one or two lessons a day just to keep my streak alive. There was no way to reply to the email and I couldn't find a way to contact someone on staff or a moderator to ask what I'm doing that could have flagged me.

I am not the moderator who warned you, but you can always send an abuse report via

To be fair the high XP was back when we had the translation part of duo. I did a lot of article proofing. If it wasn't for that I wouldn't have the high xp. It makes me wonder if some saw my high XP and thought I was cheating.

That could be the reason.
Please, have a look at your unofficial progress page in
https://www.duome.eu/Faeryeye
and these data:

French: Level 25 · 94 /1913 words · 1561308 XP
English(es): Level 25 · 0 /2161 words · 911608 XP
German: Level 25 · 614 /2126 words · 701204 XP

I could see where people looking at that wouldn't understand why I could read the German and French well. I lived in Germany for 4 years and Belgium for 2.

Hi. It appears that this was as the result of an error. Could you please send an e-mail to community@duolingo.com, so it can be discussed?

Sorry for the off topic....
I'm impressed by your daily streak, and I'm even more impressed by your total XP.
6.8 million .....
That's amazing !!!

Aha..okay...thanks for the explanation.
I just joined Duolingo 5 months ago, so I don't know about this translation thing.
Nevertheless, I'm still impressed.

Yes, you could be right.
Maybe the high XP is what made some people think that you're "cheating".
("suspicious activity" on your account) .

Well, if somebody tells you, they will be banned, so please don't expect an answer to your question as cheating is forbidden on Duolingo.
