Absolutely useless verb conjugation tables

I don't usually use these verb conjugation tables Duo offers when one hovers over a verb, but I just tested it and found that they just simply don't work (at least the Italian one).

Look at this table: http://kepfeltoltes.hu/131026/conjugtable_www.kepfeltoltes.hu_.jpg

I've taken this screenshot while doing the subjunctive lesson because i wasn't sure about one of the conjugations. But as you can see, there's no conjugation for subjunctives at all(!) which should be the goal of the lesson! there's conjugation only for indicative present, future and past imperfect. Compound tenses (passato prossimo, trapassato, futuro anteriore) completely miss while they're just as important as non-compound ones.

EDIT: I just found that for some verbs there's a "subjunctive" tab next to "indicative" and "others". but not for all verbs, only some of them... for "venire" in the example above there certainly wasn't any.

I know the Italian course is still a Beta course, but still something should be done about this. Thank you so much Duo for your hard work though, as improvements on the Italian section are obvious.

(I registered when it was new in April/March, and then skipped several months until August, so I know it has improved a lot since then)

Tantissime grazie e continuate così! :D

you right, it's not indicative. :)

i just found that with some verbs there's another tab called "subjunctive" but this doesn't work with each verb. wierd. anyways, i'll edit the post and add that.
