Just the "This Day in History" appeared, but I could not access the article, therefore, I was not credited the neurons.
I assume that was the same for the other posters of this topic...why?

The title of this makes it sound like some arbitrary personal decision, but the article explains it was a reasoned political decision made by politicians and their advisors.
Constitutional monarchy - Charles I got his head cut off for believing the monarch got to make these decisions, a long time before Victoria! Whistle

Since yesterday, all the daily features don't score the regular points anymore, and the "This day in history" and "Today's birthday" don't appear in my main page. Finally, in the same way, the "Daily grammar lesson" doesn’t appear today.
Are anyone else having the same problems, or it’s just us?

TFD FAIRLEX IS STILL NOT FUNCTIONING CORRECTLY...
YES, NEURONS MATTER, AND READING THE ARTICLES ALSO MATTERS...
EVEN THE BACKGROUND COLORS HAVE DISAPPEARED
WHAT IS GOING ON?...WE NEED ANSWERS!
