Hi PieEater1,

See this more than 1 year old and very popular discussion about Finnish for English speakers where you can add your vote and even comment.

If you want to make a [course] suggestion, we encourage you to visit the forums and making a search for suggestions that have been made in the past, and adding your vote and comments to those existing posts [and thus not creating a new one]. That will make the request more popular and make it stand out more, encouraging more people to add their votes. :)

From Help Center: "How can I suggest a new language course?
Note: Texts in between square brackets are additions of mine.

I know that you are just preventing spam in the discussions, but how upvoting a one year old post will be better than creating a new discussion ? I mean if I want X language, I won't be looking for the oldest / most popular post about X language. I would prefer to create my own discussion and show to the DL community that there is still interest for X language. I hope I wasn't rude with my message but I just don't understand this "like this 1 year old post because it has so many upvotes"thing.

First because Duo asks to do it like that. ;)
Moreover, because Duo, when and if they look at forum to see what are the popular request, will look at which one are the most upvoted. Creating new ones will have zero effect on having the course quicker. In this sense it's better.
Also, creating new discussions divides the votes between several discussions, thus making the "request" less visible to staff the day they'll want to see what are the most popular ones.

Because there are "new" discussions every day, sometimes multiple times a day about Finnish.
