I noticed that he's deactivated, but nobody seems to say anything about it, so either I'm very late or most people haven't noticed or they don't care. I hope he's doing all right. Does anyone know anything, did he just up and vanish?

Alex is taking a break to focus on other things. We are all going to miss him very much, and we really appreciate his energetic and unwavering commitment to the course and the wider Duolingo community since the beginning. It could not have been done as fast or as well or, indeed, at all without him. We are going to put something more official and enduring from all of us on the course site soon. We wish him every success in the future.

many of us are indebted to him; it would be great if there were some way to let him know we appreciate what he has done

Since he didn’t leave a farewell message, the only people here who might know anything about it are the remaining course creators.

Mr.(?) scilling you are helping in many ways. Just "thanks", until I find a better way to express my gratitude. I'll ask them.

He's also missing his moderator ring on his Sticky post (Irish portal [Under Construction]), the only place where it doesn't show "Deactivated User"
