Language level in forum doesn't match profile?

The little Spanish flag next to my name in the forum has never matched my actual Spanish level. Right now it says 2 when I'm level 10, and it changes to other random numbers too but never seems to be the same as what's on my profile.

Surely these two levels are based on the same piece of data, so why wouldn't they match?

Edit: Upon posting this it shows level 10, why would making a thread change the number?

Edit2: 5 mins later, it reverted to level 2...

Edit3: It seems that posting on the forum fixes the level for a few minutes but then it goes wrong again.

It does that. Nobody knows why but it provides us with a little entertainment. I think they just like to move the little flags around so that they look pretty.

I find it odd because it hasn't happened once with my French levels.

The Spanish one is all over the place for me.

I have the same problem too, I'm level 14 with my portuguese tree from Spanish but now it's displaying level 4!

Yeah I just watched your Portuguese level go from 14 to 5 :s

Mine too. My French should be level 14 but it sometimes shows level 11 or whatever number. :(

Mine too (German). It really bothers me.

It displays both level 2 on this page as well as on your profile right now.

Did you mean level 10? Or does it actually show level 2 to you right now?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Chuggy370

I meant level 10 :D #idioticfail

It's showing me level 2 now, check for yourself so you can see how quickly it changed!

It is for me.. Send a message to one of the Duolingo moderators about this... Unless you are playing a prank... And just because you're an Aussie and I'm a Kiwi doesn't mean I automatically presume you are playing tricks...... :D

Haha didn't realise you're a Kiwi, nah no pranks here :P
