Sentences tab missing?
G'day! I've been on holiday for a few weeks and haven't had much time for Duo, but have now returned and am getting right back into the swing of things.
Unless I'm going mad, I seem to remember there being a 'Sentences' tab when you entered the discussion stream (ie after Popular, New and Top All Time).
I found these discussions very useful as many of the regular contributors here provided really good advice, tips and feedback, plus I was often able to help users myself.
Is there still an easy way to access the sentence discussion stream?
Hello! Yes the sentence tab is missing, both from users and mods. It is meant to be only temporary, relating to Duo's (in)stability issues, and will be available again soon. In the meantime, mods have only limited access to discussions which allows us to answer some questions while the rest unfortunately are inaccessible. So we wait...
Luis von Ahn (the "boss" of Duolingo) had an ask-me-anything session on Reddit a week or so ago, where he said that sentence discussions would hopefully be enabled again soon.
A few hours later, they were indeed available again -- but for less than a day (if I remember correctly), before they were disabled again.
I hope they'll be able to bring them back again soon!
Yes, and I do hope it will be available again soon :( If you're used to answering sentence questions and interract with other users, and suddenly that tab's gone, you definitely feel like something important is missing. xP
