Decay gone crazy?
Is it just me or has anyone else had this experience. I am pretty careful to go back and fix any decaying lessons immediately when I spot them. I use Duolingo to do new lessons 5 days a week, and I go back to decaying lessons most days so I have a "clean slate". Every few weeks I check Vocabulary and fix any words that are down to one bar.
But this week DECAY WENT CRAZY. All of a sudden, half the lessons I have previously done need revising. I might have skipped one day of my usual 5 per week, so it isn't like I left it for a long period. Is this the same for anyone else?
Hey I think I know what happened now. They made a heap of changes to the Italian stream just now - and as a result warned that the system might then ask us to "revise" some earlier lessons that were changed. There is a discussion thread about this event. Unfortunately, it seems this means that I have now got dozens and dozens of lessons that need review. Sure, it will consolidate stuff, but it is a bit overwhelming when I have been so diligent keeping it from decaying.
It is actually a combination of the two - the change to the decay algorithm across all languages a few days ago and now the updates to the Italian tree. Tatou explained on another thread that the changes would hit those who had been keeping their trees gold (like you and me) particularly hard. And yes, it is a bit overwhelming, but it really won't take all that long to work through!
