Bonus Xp?

Where did the bonus experience go? I used to earn 50xp in 4 lessons, given the extra experience earned from completing lessons with less errors. Now, all I get is my 10xp for completing the lesson.

Any answers are appreciated!

Thanks,

Jeremy

Oh yeah. I miss the bonus XP as well. To get only 10 XP is boring, no challenging. Why is there such a "step back" change?

It is almost like getting punished instead of rewarded because you get to a high level.

I'm curious as well. This disappeared with my latest Android app update (4.0.2)

I have exact opposite question. What are bonus x-points, and why did I suddenly start getting them? I searched the web site for official answers, but all I came up with were discussion posts, none of which seem to have a clear explanation of these things.

It's clear they are some kind of extra credit for a job well done. I'm curious about how they are calculated, and about why I suddenly started to get them. They don't, from these posts, appear to be a new feature (my first assumption), and I don't believe I suddenly, after 3 months, started doing so remarkably better that I now deserve extra points.

Can someone explain, or point me to an explanation? Thanks.

They used to be as bonus in the phone application, later were deleted, now they are here again. No mistake = +5 points, some mistakes...+4, +3 etc..

Weird thing is: you are told you got them, they appear in your daily graph BUT they do NOT appear on your weekly total!

This week: Monday shows 70 XP on the graph and Tuesday 15 XP. In the ranking with friends, it says I have 60 XP this week....and I have done 6 exercises in total (one was a practice which gets no bonus XP).

Just checked an the bonus XP are added to your language XP for the purposes of levelling up...and it says mt weekly total is now 75 (rather than 100) so who knows what's going on!!

I noticed that if you get to a certain level that if you complete a lesson and get all correct or most of it correct it gives you 5 bonus points and then subtracts it. It should give the bonus points no matter what level you are and should Not be subtracted.

Yes, this is really strange... maybe some kind of mistake...

I don't think I've experienced that yet, or didn't notice anyway. Might not be at a certain level yet. Still a beginner here.

Not a fan of those bonus points in any case. The calculation is not transparent to me.
