Irish just hit 100%...
What could this mean?
Gonna be the naysayer here. They hit 100% two weeks ago then went back to 99%. I could be wrong, but I think it just means they fixed some images.

When we know, you'll know. We're revising the content and improving the explanatory notes in the meantime."
Believe me, I really want the course, but my hopes have been dashed many times. Trying to save those that I can from this feeling. :p
I know right! I have been eagerly and impatiently awaiting for this course.
This just means that they had the Duolingo staff remove three "ghost" words from the course. Words that were saying they weren't finished, but weren't actually in the course either.
You better not be toying with me, Duolingo. There's only so much my heart can take...
For those of you who don't believe it:
As has been said before by other users, the Irish team is working on some last changes and issues before Beta release. So I think it's a result of rounding?
I absolutely want an Irish course! How will we know when it's available? Can you,get on a list to try the beta course?
The team said they don't know the exact release date, but they do know it might be soon.
Almost done!!! I, like almost everyone else, am very excited to see this course be near its release. Just so you know, the percentage counter is weird at the end of the first stage. I remember the English-Korean course saying it was 102%. While we're waiting, we can talk about Irish things. Like leprechauns. That sounds good.
Lovely. I will know dye all my clothes green while waiting for the course. Leprechauns wear green. Irish things. OMYGOSHICANNOTTAKEITIAMGOINGINSANEPLEASEDUO!!
Either fixing up some stuff, or actually finished and will do some testing before releasing into beta. Hopefully it will come out in the next few days or sooner!
The contributors keep saying it won't be long, but the Irish course never comes. It's such a tease. :-P
Honestly, that's the contributors' way of saying "We haven't got a clue either". At some point you're pretty much done with the course and you're just waiting for the staff to fix and implement stuff, and ask the magical question: "do you feel the course is ready for release the way it is now?"
And let me tell you, answering that question with "yes" sounds so much easier than it is! You want to deliver top quality, not disappoint anyone, and you're scared to death of bugs and mistakes you've missed... once released there are many things that cannot be changed anymore!
I'll go ahead and clarify that I was joking. I totally understand that the contributors want to assure the highest quality. I totally trust them for that. But I, along with many other people, am just anxious. ;-)
I know ;) I wanted to give a bit of insight into the process of finishing a course, in a feeble attempt at reducing the amount of "why isn't it out yout?!" topics for upcoming courses, haha
You beat me to it! I think the moment many of us have been waiting for is upon us. So exciting!
