Skill dependencies on updated tree

I notice with the updated tree I now have 3 or 4 levels of skills opening up that don't meet the stated dependencies. This is not big deal but it does make it a little harder for me to keep track of which skill I am working on.

Which skills do you mean?

Spanish: Before the added lessons I had Abstract Objects 1 and Verbs: Participle enabled.

After the addition of the lessons I have Feelings, Verbs Infinitive 2 and Nature enabled.

Clearly the requirements are not met for these.

Hope that helps. Thanks Luis.

Ah, this is because we rearranged some of the lessons, and it turns out you had learned some of the things in those skills.

Does refreshing learnt skills often make it more likely to get the words from untouched skills (grey boxes)? I've been getting a lot of new words lately that I haven't seen before and I know they are from lessons further on in the tree.. eg. when I was trying to get to the second lock, I was getting a lot of sentences with está/están/etc, which was confusing at first because I hadn't done the lessons.. I was and still am also getting a lot of sentences with this/that/those (from a skill that's still grey)..

Last weekend, after refreshing all the skills I'd learnt, I had 8 new colored skills past the second lock (though I hadn't unlock this section/didn't have a tick). Then they turned grey during the week, but I was getting loads of new words (I think from these lessons). Now they're colored again.. is this normal?

That was a bug that should now be mostly fixed, I think.

Did you fix the bug recently? If so, it worked for me :) If not... the placebo effect strikes again! :$

Either way, thanks for fixing the bug!
