I am using flashcards on one of my lessons and have found that if I score correct on some or most of them and then log off (before going through the whole list of flashcards and starting at the beginning during that session) that it doesn’t rememver these correct scores so the increased level of knowledge is not registered. I have just tested this with a lesson with 5 flash cards and have registered all as correct and then logged off before going back to the beginning. I have done this about 6 times, registering all as correct yet in no case has any increased knowledge been recorded. If, however, I score a correct answer and then go back one and repeat then this will increase the score at a 2nd correct answer.
My problem is that one lesson I have has 365 flash cards and its making it difficult to use properly.

Hi, I’m using a Chromebook with the latest version of its OS and I have tried it on IE 11 for Windows 7 just now. The same problem occurs on IE. It doesn’t matter for a small flashcard deck but if it’s got more than I can get through twice in one session then it never makes any progress…
Hi! Zoran asked me to take a look at this issue. After re-reading your post, it appears you’re clicking “Got it!” once per card, correct?
On LingQ, to move a word up in status you’ll need to click “Got it” twice in a row on that card. This is to help make sure that you know the word sufficiently before it is moved up to the next status level.
It sounds like you’d like to work through your cards only once. In this case, you can use the 1-4 keys on your keyboard to manually adjust the status of a word. For example, if you see a word which is status 1 and get it right, instead of pressing “Got it” you can just press 1-4 on your keyboard to move the word to the desired status level. You can also click on a status on the status bar to increase the status.
Hopefully this helps explain things a bit more clearly!

Huh? How is that possible?
The flashcard functionality is designed so that you can’t (and shouldn’t) click twice in a row (you mean consecutively?) on a card. You click ‘got it’ and it moves to another card. So I don’t understand this.
If you read exactly what my post says you’ll see what the problem is.
If you click 'got it 'on the same card twice before logging off, or ending the flashcard session, then, yes, it will move up a level.
The point of my post is that if you click ‘got it’ and log off and then log on and click ‘got it’ and then log off and log on and click ‘got it’ - a hundred times - it will never move it up the scale. The system doesn’t remember…unless you click on it twice IN THE SAME SESSION!!
Thanks for the clarification, Paul. Yes, you’re right in that the system doesn’t currently remember single “Got it” clicks across multiple sessions.
Above you mentioned a lesson that has 365 LingQ. Naturally this is quite a few, and likely even making your way through the flashcard session once would be very time consuming. Instead, I might recommend going to the Vocabulary page (Learn > Vocabulary) and reviewing some of your LingQs from there.
You’ll also receive a set of LingQs each day for review through the LingQs of the Day. You can adjust this number on the Settings page if you would like to receive more to review each day. These LingQs that are sent to you are ones that are scheduled to be reviewed according to our SRS system (lingqcentral-en.lingq.com/lingq-srs).
We do hope to update the flashcards in the near future, though in the shorter term there are a few workarounds that will hopefully help get things working properly!
Alex, many thanks for this. Yes I probably should use the set of LingQ’s I get by email. The workarounds are sensible. thanks.
