Back after a few months away, what have I missed?

Hi all! I have been away due to personal reasons and am glad to be back! What are the most important things have I missed? Have there been many technical changes to the website? Have any big community leaders/ awesome duolingo-ers popped up into the mix?

You missed about 5,000 requests for lingots, 1,000 requests or questions about bonus skills most of them about the Christmas one and 500 new users posting messages that simple say "Hi!". In addition, 50 people learned how to write codes to change the font in discussions!

I don't think I posted any new discussions but I read almost every one about bonus skills and I looked at most posts that had more than 10 comments. I finally got my Christmas bonus skill so it's been a great time in duolingo for me! Welcome back!

Also, several dozen XP competitions (some of which even finished), and about 1000 requests asking why Finnish, Icelandic, and Latin are not here.

Closer to several hundred, I think. :-) And about 300 hundred requests for Japanese.

The German tree expanded and reorganised its tree, leading people who had completed it to wake up to a largely colourful tree until they did the new lessons as well.
