Hi, I’m not tech support, but I’ve been trying to think of various reasons for your problem to try and help you.
According to your progress snapshot which is under your avatar on your home page, you haven’t made any LingQs in English or German yet. Did you accidentally click on the button ‘ignore this word’ when you made the yellow LingQ for “to”? If so, this is the reason it doesn’t show as a number under ‘LingQs’, or under ‘LingQs Learned’ in your progress snapshot. Try dragging your mouse back over the word “to” in order to make it yellow (then save the hint).
I don’t know if you’re not making your lingQs correctly, or whether you have accidentally clicked on the ‘ignore this word’ button.
If the system thought you knew the word, then it would show up as a statistic (number) in the progress snapshot under ‘known words’ or ‘lingQs learned’, but you have nothing there.
Also, when you highlight a word and it changes to yellow, you must remember to save the hint if you made your own hint, by hitting ‘Enter’ on your keyboard - otherwise the system doesn’t think you’ve made a LingQ.
If I’ve changed a blue word into a yellow lingQ (and clicked or saved the hint), then I can see my ‘LingQs’ number goes up immediately if I return to my progress snapshot and check it. Similarly, if I change the status of that lingQ from a 1 (unlearned word) into a 4 (learned word) on the right-hand panel of the lesson, the yellow changes to white, and my number under ‘LingQs learned’ increases (back on my home page). [You can see the status (ie. 1,2,3 or 4) belonging to any of your yellow LingQs by clicking on the yellow word].
Words that have a faint dotted line underneath them are learned words that used to be yellow lingQs.
Other words that are white and don’t react when you try to click on them, are words that you already knew. However, I can change these back into yellow lingQs if I drag my mouse over them, and click or save (press Enter on keyboard) user hint.
