I have read Today's Birthday 3 times today, as it is my current Goal, and I do not get credit for that -- it still says I need to read it for today.
Plus, the other features, such as Today's Article are scoring only 5 points as if they are standard/routine articles being read, rather than today's features.
Are you aware of problems with this today?

Thanks.

This happens for about ten minutes after they are posted by Daemon at 4:00 AM GMT. And you may not score 30 points after that if you stay at the article for less than 20 seconds.

You can check my account - I have harvested all points in the last 5 days. You only scored 5 times in the Word of the Day:

This time it happened to me. Got 5 points as for a regular article. All but the Word of the Day.

Exactly the same for me today, I got 10 points for Grammar Quiz questions, 30 points for Word of the day, and 50 points for Daily Grammar Lesson (I am not sure about this one). Only 5 points for other feature articles. What is worse it can ruin completing the goal of the day, just like in Wilmar's case.

Also the freedictionary android app stopped working, after trying to open feature articles the message "Unable to load the page. Switch to offline mode." appears (except Word of the day).

To me it will be especially cheery - it's the last day:



Must be the Norman conquest of England beginning.

It was broken all day yesterday (Wednesday) and it's still broken day. Why doesn't TFD respond to this problem?

Yes it works!

Looks like I've collected 5 extra points for each of the 6 articles. :)

Thanks.

New issue or question... Prior to the scoring being broken, which is the topic of this chain, the Match-Up game awarded 30 points for scoring 5 out of 5 correctly. Ever since the "correction", the game only awards 15 points for a completely correct answer.

TFD -- Is that what is intended or another oversight?

Items like Word of the Day and Article of the Day award 30 neurons. But Match Up is only 15.

Right, I get that. I'm pointing out that prior to the "broken scoring" incident, Match Up awarded 30 points. Since the "fix", is awards only 15. I am asking if the change was intentional.

Match Up awarded 15 before the fix as well. The amount of neurons was not changed.
