Lost progress

Hi, I see you've added a lot of new content, which is awesome, but it looks like I've lost the level progress? I still have my lingots and stuff, but I'm on scratch on almost every item.

This also happened to me. I was told they will try to reestablish the level we had achieved prior to the new change.

I was so close to a golden tree and now it is around half done, but my crowns remain the same which is confusing. I am happy there is new content but would like to understand the logic behind losing progress on skills, especially ones that don't appear to have changed much or at all, for example, I was recently working on Technology, but this reset from level 3 to zero, but I just tested it out to get back to 3 and the questions were almost identical. There is no new, similar Technology section, so why did I get dropped to zero?! was this a mistake?

It appears that I have been 'migrated' to one of the staff developed French trees as well.

Last I read, the French tree migrations were on hold until DL figured out a better data migration process. Based upon the current status of my tree - it appears that the migrations are happening again, but the data migration process appears to remain pretty bad.

Hopefully a moderator will be able to explain the situation.

For example:

I was migrated to Crowns level 0 for my new 'Greetings' skill. I just completed all of the four lessons (data is below). I've previously seen all of the words on DL - except for « enchanté ».

What was new is that there was a pronunciation question (how to pronounce « é ».

Given that DL's data migration algorithm couldn't recognize that I've already seen this content - I'm not optimistic re: how things will handled for the 'higher' skills.

Lesson One

  • Oui
  • Bonjour
  • Ça va bien
  • Comment ça va
  • Oui, ça va bien
  • Bonjour, comment ça va

Lesson Two

  • Ça va bien, et toi
  • Bien, merci
  • Bonsoir, comment ça va
  • Salut, comment ça va
  • Ça va très bien
  • Oui, merci
  • Et toi

Lesson Three

  • Bonne journée
  • Au revoir
  • À bientôt
  • Bonjour, bienvenue
  • Enchanté
  • [new!] - Phonetics question about how to pronounce « é »
  • Au revoir

Lesson Four

  • à demain
  • Bonne nuit
  • Au revoir, bonne soirée
  • Salut, à bientôt
  • Au revoir, merci beaucoup
  • Au revoir, à demain

And FWIW, I have little faith in the ability of the 'test out' function to ensure that I'm tested on the new to me content, and not just a random sampling of the words/sentences in the skill.

I.e., I suspect that testing out of a skill on the new tree doesn't guarantee that I learn whatever new vocabulary (or sentences) have been added.

I used to be on the French tree w/96 skills. The tree I'm now on has 156 skills - BUT from the looks of it, I've lost several important verb tense skills (passive voice for example). If this is correct - I've lost content.

This has also happened to me. Items which were on 4/5 have now been placed a 0. Despite this my crowns are still reflecting what they previously were at. Very confused. Something like basics 2 is set to 0 for me even though I am way past that.

What's interesting, on tinycards the old course still exists.
