I deleted my Duolingo goal and now Duolingo won't load


#1

And when I try to create a new Duolingo goal it tells me I haven’t started practicing Spanish through Duolingo. Has anyone else had this happen?


#2

Hmm. The Duolingo goals on Beeminder are pretty cool–they use a public part of everyone’s Duolingo account. This means Duolingo doesn’t even know Beeminder is watching it!

I wonder if you are using a different Duolingo account than before? That could explain the Beeminder message and Duolingo being empty…

Nope, I’ve only ever had one Duolingo account. I don’t know why it would affect my Duolingo account if it can’t tell Beeminder is monitoring my progress, but it’s the only thing I’ve done differently relating to Duolingo lately.


#4

When you say Duolingo won’t load, are you referring to the website duolingo.com or something else?


#5

I’m talking about the website. Where it’s supposed to show my progress, etc., it’s nothing but a blank gray page.

I call post-hoc-ergo-propter-hoc on this one! :slight_smile: If it’s something on duolingo.com that’s misbehaving I will eat my hat if Beeminder is implicated. Like @adamwolf said, we’re just fetching your public stats from your profile, nothing more. Like my own Duolingo stats live at https://www.duolingo.com/dreev which anyone can see and Beeminder just reads those stats same as you just did by clicking that link (nerd note: they also have a JSON version which is technically what we’re fetching but it’s a plain old GET request either way). See what I mean?


#7

Did you recently install any content blockers or browser extensions that might be interfering with that page loading?


#8

Relatedly, does Duolingo load OK if you open the site in Incognito mode?


#9

I haven’t installed anything new or changed anything at all that I can think of, but yesterday it spontaneously went back to working again. Thanks for the suggestions, though.

Wonderful!
