An idea

Just an idea, what if there was a message popping up everytime you enter Duolingo (or maybe not a pop up) saying how many lessons or words have decayed the last time you were on Duolingo? That way, it'll help us be sure of how many lessons to practice in order to help keep our tree golden, and to help our memory improve, and not decay. Thanks :D

Maybe that could be included in the coach's little pep talk when you turn on the app. "You're on track today. Good job! X words have decayed. Go get 'em!"

I like this idea, maybe on your home page somewhere instead of a popup (since popups are evil) :D

You might like this http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/185578 It shows a counter of words that "need practicing". I use it by trying to keep it at 0 or close every day.

Agreed. Finding out what decayed is a similar mentally motivating gamification effect as losing a heart

Du meinst, "Das ist eine gute Idee.", weil Idee feminin ist. Aber ich stimme mit Ihnen zu! :)

"Aber ich stimme Ihnen zu." oder "Aber da stimme ich Ihnen zu."

i kennte nicht, vielen dank!

Unfortunately "kennen" is an irregular verb. The vowel changes. kennen, kannte, gekannt. So it should be: "Das kannte ich nicht, vielen Dank!" or even better "Das wusste ich nicht, vielen Dank!" Since kennen is only to know as in be acquainted with a person or thing, while wissen is to know and understand a concept. (wissen, wusste, gewusst)

ok, danke. I also meant "Ich", so, das wusste ich nicht. :P
