Wrong level indicator

Hello !

I've noticed that the level indicator next to my name when I'm posting something is not always corresponding to my real level (according to my XP). For example I'm level 12 in Spanish but for the few past days it has been shown 2, 3, 7 or 12 with no logic reason (I've only leveled up from 11 to 12 in the past week). It hasn't happened with my other languages.

It's not a huuuuuge problem, but still I would be glad if someone could explain to me why it's acting like that ?

Thanks a lot ! (I couldn't find this theme in the existing threads but if one already exists please tell me)

Ok, thanks. Well I just posted two comments in the same thread, one from yesterday says I'm level 3 and the second says I'm level 12. People are going to think that I'm veeeeery into Spanish :D

Yes, this is a common problem, and I don't think any of us really knows why it is. I originally believed it to be the result of my taking a reverse course but those who haven't taken reverse courses experience the problem, too.

In fact, as I'm writing this, my German level says 15 while I am really level 18...

Now it says it's 18 :)

... and it's back to 15 temporarily. It changes just about every five minutes :(

Yes, it's a known bug. Started happening to me once I started the reverse courses. More examples at https://www.duolingo.com/comment/5532207

Yeah, I've read that, but actually I'm not doing any reverse course right now, once I tried it but it wasn't even for Spanish.

Same here. Seems like I'm level 12 today (actually I'm level 8)
