What's wrong with xp now?

I tested out of a german skill, and I lost a heart. At the end it gave NO points at all! Is this a bug, or another "xp doesn't matter" idea from Duolingo? Heeeelp!

The same thing has been happening to a bunch of my friends who study here. No points for testing out. Xp does matter when it comes to motivation. We can hope it's only a bug but I wouldn't count on it.

They recently changed they way XP is given for testing out of levels. I think it was some way to stop people from abusing it to get XP(?) but I don't know.

I don't think they changed it so that you don't get a single xp if you lose a heart

Most people are reporting getting 20XP for a test-out, but some people are reporting getting 0XP. There might be an A/B test going on. (Oh joy. Not.)

It's currently stickied to the top of the "Duolingo" forum, so it's pretty easy to find if you need to refer to it. But it will eventually get un-stickied.
