Another possible A/B test?

Just now, I saw my leaderboard updated to names instead of usernames, I liked it the other way, can I get it back? Is it also possible that this can be an A/B test, is anybody else seeing this?

Yep, new A/B test. It's called "leaderboard_fullname_test_v3". Not active for me.

You can find this one, and the other current A/B tests, on your user data page here:

Are you like a developer or something? I think you directed us to the deep end of Duolingo... I mean look at all that text.

Folks, remember CTRL + F (Command + F on Mac) is your friend for locating the text.

Here's a step by step guide if needed to see other possible A/B tests:

  1. Go to http://www.duolingo.com/users/[INSERT YOUR USERNAME HERE]

  2. On your keyboard, press "CTRL + F" to open up the "Find" box. If nothing happened, try Command + F.

  3. When that box pops up, paste or type this text in: leaderboard_fullname_test_v3

  4. It should direct you to it. If not, click the right arrow on the box or alternatively "CTRL + G" which will show the next selection.

  5. From there you can see what A/B tests you are 'Enabled' for.

Remember if you're a Mac user, instead of CTRL -- you should be using COMMAND. Should apply to Linux too I think.

Yes, but not a web dev. I've explored around the site a bit, but most of what I know is just stuff I've picked up in the forums.

That's a weird thing to do. They switched to names on tinycards a while back, it seems like it would just make it easy to impersonate another user.
