Here we go again: who came up with the bright idea of killing the displays of translation tiers on DL people's profiles? Have we forgotten the outpouring of complaints and outrage that happened the last time this stunt was pulled?

They must be doing another one of those A/B tests. They just throw something against the wall and wait to see who complains. Well, I think it's very unwise to cut out translation tiers, and I am confident that DL will lose exactly the people it needs the most if it continues to do things like this.

I seriously hope it's a bug and not a permanent "improvement" like coach, which by the way covers up the progress status to the next level of learning.

It's bug. EnigmaticTiger had theirs disappear and then reappear. Whenever a big update comes along like the School feature, little bugs scurry about for a bit. :)

It's weird for me because always appears on my profile, but it appears, then disappears on other users' profiles. EDIT: Just disappeared on mine.

Yes, highly annoying indeed. No use complaining via DL Support as you risk getting an answer within months from now. (Note: I finished my Spanish tree ages ago and I am still getting messages about accepted translations!)

Only votes from people in your tier and higher will affect your overall level. Is it possible the votes you are getting are from someone in a lower tier than your own?

That's ok. Now I'm understanding your view. I'm still learning, so sometimes I make mistakes, and when I read "Really"??? where did this come from" I thought you referred to something I said (that any expression that I wrote was wrong) Now I'm realizing you said about Wazzie's info. (I'm sorry, Gine. My bad)

In the immersion section, you are able to translate articles from your target language, and are able to upvote other people's translations. When you get 100 upvotes from people in your tier or higher, you move to the next tier. People with higher tiers are usually more experienced translators, and seeing what tiers other people have is something that some people like to see, myself included. But you probably don't need to worry about any of this until you have enough experience in your target language to start translating :)

It's unlimited; you just need to have someone else in your tier to advance. The highest tier I know of 192, which is in French and held by royalhalo. In order to tier up quickly, it's easiest to work in a team with one or more people, where everyone focuses on upvoting each other.
