Course flag not showing in discussion posts

  • 1677

I just noticed (22 Nov 14) that the French flag isn't showing, but my Spanish and English (U.S.) flags are. I'm sure it has been there in the past. I haven't deleted the course or been inactive. Please fix. Thank you.

EDIT (still 22 Nov): And just to make me look bad, all the flags are showing here. EDIT2: Now it's showing up on other past posts, too. I'll leave this here for a while in case it happens again or others are having the same problem.

(11 Dec 14) In the past week or two, I've noticed that my French level (as shown in discussion posts) is one level above what my actual Spanish-to-French level is, even though my English-to-French level is several levels higher. I've also noticed that when I add a new post to a discussion, the levels (for all posts in that thread) show correctly, but when I go back to them later, the level is back down to its previous level (too low).

Well, I can't see the French flag here but it shows up in your profile. Don't worry about the flags, I guess it's kinda buggy when users are taking multiple courses.

EDIT (2:39 PM PST, 11 Dec 14): For example, for this post, the flags appeared normally 38 minutes ago when I first made it. Now that I've browsed around and returned, the French flag is incorrect again (should be 9).

Writing this after your second edit: I only see your Spanish and English flags.

Thanks for the replies (a lingot each for your services!). Now (10:32 PM PST 22 Nov; 06:32 UTC 23 Nov), again, I don't see the French flag on this discussion.

EDIT: And a page refesh (Ctrl-F5), and it's there again. (Refreshing doesn't always work, though.)

Still no French flag. Does it have your levels right for the other two? On mine it was saying I was level 13 in German when I was only 12, and that I was level 2 in English when I'm level 4 or 5. There is definitely something wrong with the flag-level interface.

The levels are correct. I haven't noticed the levels ever being too high, just too low in the minutes after a level increase. And I see that I don't have the French flag again (9:39 PM PST 23 Nov, 05:39 UTC 24 Nov).

EDIT: This is a new one. I see the French flag on this reply only, but not my other posts on this page. EDIT2: Ctrl-F5 and now there is no French flag on any post.
