Ridiculously quick de-gilding times?
Okay I've noticed the past couple of weeks that my tree has de-gilded far quicker than it used to. Every time I regild the tree, the next day I log in half the things I gilded are no longer gold, after just one day! I'm getting frustrated because I can't move on to learn more lessons because I'm spending all my time reviewing lessons I've already learned. The crazy part is I'm usually doing pretty well in my reviews so I don't think I really need to review them that soon after. Is this happening to anyone else with the Swedish tree?
I'm the opposite way around. I feel I need a lot more reviews but things rarely de-gild (some days one or two, most days none). Maybe it will ramp up when I get further into the lessons. Only up to Adj. 1 at the moment.
Yeah, after Adj. 1 is where it starts getting bad (at least for me). Particularly around Numbers, Travel, and Education section (currently stuck on V:Pres 3 just because I have had to review Education EVERY day since I gilded it! Every day!!!! Same goes for Travel and Numbers, those are nearly every day and I honestly feel like I know far more than that amount of having to review so idk.
This happens when you get towards the end of the tree, any tree. I got my Italian tree all shiny with just twelve skills remaining and the next day 23 had degilded! Now I have decided to finish the tree then regild it. I did the same with the Swedish and Portugese trees. I managed to finish Spanish, French and German with them all gold, so this may have got worse, or perhaps I have got better at remembering words and don't feel the same need for review.
This is the furthest I've gotten on a Duolingo tree before so that makes sense. But I absolutely hate learning more with it all degilded :( Maybe I will do something like regild 3 learn 1 each day or something, because it hurts my eyes! But if I keep going at the rate I'm at, I'll reach level 25 in Swedish before I even finish the tree :P
yes, it gets really bad towards the end. my french tree i never bothered keeping gold cuz i was already much too advanced for the tree anyway and i just did it for the easy level 25, but i couldn't keep up with it at the end my portuguese tree, and i got so discouraged by doing a dozen strengthens every day and yet still never seeing less than ten de-gild per day, that i just quit the tree and moved onto spanish before i even planned to start a new language.
This happens to me in every language. I now just regard Duo as broken and try not to twitch whenever I see the strength bars.
This is a really time-consuming solution but I just unlocked the final section and my completed sections stay gold for ages. My theory for this is that I never do review. Instead, I go back and re-do the entire skill from start to finish. Yep, even if it has like nine sections. Once I do that it doesn't de-gild again for ages.
