NOTICE regarding unaccepted translations later in the tree (AND MISSING HINTS)

Some of you have been pointing out that we do have a number of missing translations later in the tree. We certainly do, as we are only just in the beta stage. However, many of the translations that apparently aren't accepted are already in the system, but there seems to be a glitch where those are not accepted in the lessons.

So, this does not mean to stop reporting sentences by any means. Keep doing so, please!

We just wanted you to know that your reports in the later skills are being checked and accepted by us - even if it doesn't seem that way!

The staff will of course look for a solution to this.

EDIT: adding a screenshot to show what's going on:

As you can see in the left window, we have the alternatives in the course, and that's why the reports you all send are already green (they're red if they haven't been added yet). In the right window is what is happening during the course; the alternatives simply aren't being accepted.

*HINTS*:

We added separable hints throughout the entire course! However, an (unfortunate) issue has been preventing them from showing up. The Duolingo staff is working on fixing this, I can assure you.

You can see the hint working in this image for "lezen.... voor": http://i.imgur.com/O3KApN4.png?2

As you might imagine, this is frustrating for us as well as for all of you. Hopefully we won't have to wait too long for a fix!

Really nice to get a look at the back end of the system!

Thank you for letting us know. This is helpful information. I keep forgetting it's in beta and getting frustrated. Duolingo has so far been the best language learning I've experimented with, and I appreciate your hard work!

May I ask if this problem is already fixed? For quite some time I haven't had emails that my suggestions for translation have been accepted and I suppose it's because they already are accepted, just not yet working.

I haven't heard anything about it being fixed. Moreover, most of our team has been away on vacation for the past week or so. That's one reason why fewer reports have been checked. We'll be back in action soon!

It's becoming impossible to finish the later Dutch sections because I keep getting my answer graded incorrectly while it is (in my opinion) a valid translation. So I'm going to stop checking for a while and wait till the situation improves (and my (hopefully correct) answers get incorporated).
