  5. No weakest words, but the skiā€¦

No weakest words, but the skill is below gold. Is this a bug?

The list of 'Weakest words' is empty. What do I need to strengthen then?

Expected behaviour: List of weakest words if I need practice in the skill, like this:

Is this a bug?

Also, can this be related to this issue? I noticed this after doing some practice through the global big blue 'Strengthen skills' button.

Thank you for all the input, we are looking into it!

Thanks! Please keep us posted! :)

Your pictures aren't showing up so it is hard to understand what you mean...

Really? I'll swap them to imgur links then shortly.

Great. This is a new A/B test that seems to be somewhat buggy.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Wizek

Thanks for the info! Where do you know this from? Or is it just a guess?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dessamator

The new layout was shown here: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/4063786, and another user also indicated that they have a feature that shows weak words in skills. Also I don't have that layout, so it can only mean that's an A/B test or that you changed your Duolingo interface using some script.

I have this test, and I have encountered this bug a couple of times. It usually resolves itself with a refresh.

Dessamator: I'm not running any scripts to modify duolingo -- to my knowledge.

May I ask you to post a screenshot of the other interface? This is the only one I've seen for a long while, would be curious to see the difference! :)

AlexisLinguist: I've refreshed with CMD+R multiple times. The skill is still below gold, and still no 'weakest words' listed when I open it.

@Wizek: Has it resolved itself now? Maybe shutting down your browser will help?

The layout looks different from mine. Is it coz this is for a new course?

Edit: I just realized, the only difference seems to be the missing Words and Immersion tabs which should be since it's a new course.
