Likes in Activity
I wish I could see everyone who liked my achievements in Activity. It is strange that we are given only two names "and x others". I would much rather either see all the names or no names at all.
Yeah, this would be nice. If you get an email notification for the specific event you care about, you can see the whole list by following the link to the activity in the email. It'll take you to a page like "https://www.duolingo.com/event/5555555". Add an 's' to the url to change "event" to "events", and you'll see the data for the page. Towards the end of the structure, there will be a data member called "liked_users", which has the whole list. Sort of a lengthy process, but it works.
Wow, I didn't know that. Thanks for the explanation! Is there a way to find out the event ID without getting a notification?
Not a convenient way. You can use your browser's development console to watch the network traffic as the activity page is loading. One of the things sent to your machine will be a JSON document containing a chunk about each event in the activity log. This JSON doc does show the eventIDs, but like I said, it's not convenient to access.
I believe that it would be possible to automate this process with a userscript and actually show all of the "likes" directly on the activity page, but that's beyond what I know how to do with scripting.
I just understand half of what you said (since I'm definitely not a techie), but it's very interesting to read and know this stuff. Thanks for your answer!
You can retrieve the JSON directly via the URL handler activity/YOURUSERID All you need to do is to parse the response.
Very interesting, thanks. It's fun to dig into the behind the scenes stuff and see what's going on. I just wish I had more time to explore and really get a good handle on it.
Sure thing! Your 500 is impressive too, especially with that list of flags. Nice work!
