Thanks, that's what I was wondering. I thought a suggestion feature might make it easier, but this works! :D

Well, in the future, Duolingo is planning on improving the incubator or something, and is going to add a feature to add more vocabulary to the language trees.

As of adding new features to Duolingo, how could that work? First of all, maybe not all Duolingo users are as good as programming, and if I were a part of the team, I wouldn't want the website to be randomly changed with new features without permission from anyone.

So, my only suggestion for you is to continue posting your brilliant suggestions in the discussion area but with making sure your suggestion wasn't already suggested. (The search function can come in handy for that :)

I meant you should be able to type into a box that says New Features (or something) and then the Team will check 'em out. But, that programming thing sounds pretty interesting. Someone should set up a site that anyone can change (but to a higher degree than on Wikipedia). Sorry for the miscommunication!

Well, of course, like kristinemc said, they do read the discussion area. But for the "programming" thing, it actually works way different then how I described.

If you already know how the incubator works, then Volia! You know a little bit on how Duolingo could expand the vocabulary. (You could become a moderator, and moderate a course) or, I don't know how they'll add this "feature", and I possibly don't even know if they'll add it in the first place. (I just heard some people say it in a few discussions.)
