Good new feature!

Just one thing. In the French interface there is a little mix in translations. bug.

I extended it and have the green check symbol but, when I hover over it, it says "Série non prolongée aujourd'hui" (Streak not extended today). ;)

Hi Remy, I still have it here.

NB: I logged off/on to be sure it wasn't a problem a refreshing or anything.

I just tried it and it seems to work fine (it says "Série prolongée aujourd'hui" with the green check mark). Can you please double check?

Strange. I completely closed then reopen Chrome before testing: the "non" is still there and the green mark too (since I practiced today).

I like the check mark. Hopefully it comes to the phone app as well :)

Actually, even without this feature, there is a way to check if you have already added to your streak: click "Weekly progress" and look if there are coins for today.

true but I hate that I always seem to be on the wrong page and have to click first. Also I would love to have this feature on the app.

Suggestion change the color of the entire flame to green (for each language separately of course)!

Is this only for a test group? I don't see it for my Spanish.

I think it is a great feature they are testing, but I would prefer some other (nicer) indicator instead of this check mark.

If you have any idea for a different indicator please share. (I couldn't come up with anything good :) )

Just to understand. Another to indicate the same thing? Or you would like several to indicate different things, as "all languages practiced", "at least one practiced", "none practiced". in which case it could be double green check, simple green check (as now) and red cross.

But I like the current indicator. :) I wouldn't change it.

I like it :) At least I can be sure I didn't forgot to practice and I am not going to loose my precious streak :) I practised even though I have been 3 weeks on vacation in Canada - it was hard because there was like 6 hours time difference and Streak is related to my local time in Europe :) but I managed - it would be a pity to loose it :)

Is this meant to help clear up the confusion with the streak freeze? I would like to see a calendar. I could see every day I have practiced since I joined Duolingo, what days I practiced, and how many points I got. That way, we could add streak freezes to days that are in the future (Example: I know I'm going to leave early for a retreat on Friday, and won't have any internet or time to buy the streak freeze for two days. On Thursday, I could buy streak freeze for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday by clicking on the days individually.) Does this sound like a good idea?

D: HOW DID YOU GET IT IN FRENCH!? Or did you just switch the language you're learning to English.. I really wish they had language settings.

Oh, I learn all the languages I'm learning both way. ;)

But, since the community is more active here and there are more member of Duo that are moderators here than in the French forum (poor Remy is alone :)), I found it better to post it here in order for it to be dealt quicker.

another new feature I have noticed is the recovery of half a heart when you 'fix a mistake'. But I am too shy to make a new post out of it ;)

I like it althought I would like such a feature more if I could see a kind of a table or chart showing all my languages streak, because to check each of my languages I have to swich between them manually and it's kind of tedious, but ok, I just accept it, because I still like using Duolingo.
