Grading banner is no longer movable

The banner that pops up telling you whether your answer was correct or incorrect used to be movable and it no longer is. Now it covers the answer that you gave making it impossible to double check your answer.

This is very frustrating. Is it just a temporary bug or is this going to be permanent?

Came here with the same issue. If this is a permanent change it severely reduces the value of Duolingo as a learning tool. I really hope they didn't do this intentionally.

If this is a permanent change it severely reduces the value of Duolingo as a learning tool.

A lot of the features that have been removed recently by Duo staff are most of the time permanent and the service gets worse and WORSE every time, just like bringing the Health system to both iOS and Android apps.

There are more annoying and bad changes they keep forcing onto our throats while Duolingo itself "deteriorates". The worst is the loss of audio for words in sentences for all courses. Why would Duo staff remove this essential feature when doing so makes it harder to learn languages? Are the people making these decisions narrow minded and stupid?

I am having the same problem. For a few days, the banner and the 'continue' (or whatever it is) button started moving together, now neither moves. Annoying in general but especially when I forget they're stuck, try to move them and accidentally trigger a pull-down refresh of the screen, which loses all my progress in the lesson. Doh!

This makes the courses borderline useless. I need to be able to check what I wrote. It doesn't occur in the app, but the app is missing so many important features that I always use the web version on my phone.

The app is also not working purposely since the up date recently. I have reported it. The videos stick and you just go round in a loop of closing the app, only to find you are back at the same point. So frustrating! And wasting my precious time.

Please make sure you report it as a bug to Facebook

Reported it, waiting and hoping for a response.

This still hasn't been fixed. Did everyone send in a bug report? I hate when I get marked incorrect and suspect I might have misread the question BUT THERE'S NO WAY TO TELL because I can't see the question anymore!!

April 23, 2019

I complained every way possible, Facebook, to the moderator, and with their big report (which asked for my email, no response). Not fixed or even addressed in any way. I'm starting a trial of Rosetta Stone tomorrow and probably out of here.

If the banner was transparent we could see our answer (it is a problem)

Hurray, the banner has moved off the answer box! Thank you Duo! Not perfect as it's hard to get to the Report and Discussion buttons now but still, it's much much better!

Only a little over a month!!!! I moved on to Rosetta Stone but I will supplement it with this. Thanks for the update.

OMG finally fixed!! I didn't believe it until I saw it myself!!

Noooooo...! It seems to have broken again!

Ugh. I got to to exactly one lesson before it broke again. Hope it's not another month.

Yeah me too!!! So strange. You guys saw it right? I wasn't hallucinating? At the same time now I've got those weird "fill in the blank" questions that I've never had before.

You're not hallucinating (either that, or we all are). I'm out, again, until they fix it. So frustrating.

Changed again! Let's see how long this change sticks around for.

Awesome, does seem to be working well. I will type that but not say it out loud.

Hush... whisper it... But the banner seems to have moved up the page a bit, so you can see your answer underneath!

Don't let the owl know we've noticed, though, or he might let it slip back down!

I'm glad someone is working on it, but this may actually be a bad development (I'm "glass half empty" when it comes to Duolingo these days). You can now see the answer, but not the question. I hope they don't think that's good enough and leave it that way.

I agree I have reported this as a bug for the android app. There is loads of room below the question and my answer for the duo answer, there is no need for it to overlap in the first place. And a lot of the time I'm sure I typed in what they have but no way to check.

Ehhh on my phone the banner has stretched up to cover most of the answer again. So incompetent!
