The «Activity» page disappeared four days ago. :[

Since Thursday the «Activity» page in the blue header hasn't been displaying. Actually I haven't been seeing the activity if I get to a friend's page – there are just pages with avatar and nickname but no more. Is that a tech bug? Does anyone gotta stick like me also?

Some of the accounts have been transferred to the new code. There are some bugs and a lot of not implemented things there.

Speaking of an overhaul, the website is undergoing a full rewrite from the ground up, which will make it, literally, ten times faster. However, other than speed, you shouldn't notice any difference. This new implementation of the website is currently being tested on about 10% of our users.

Added: The new code does not have an implementation of Activity and Discussion. But when you click on Discussion, your browser receives the old code from the server and a special A/B test, called "web_rewrite", turns off Activity there.

so.....is happening to 10% of users now....and only a matter of time until that is the case for everyone? right.

Yes, I think so.

Thank you, you answered to lots of my wondering.

I registered to DL mid december 2016 and my profile shows: web_rewrite":{"contexts":[],"treated":true,"destiny":"experiment","condition":"experiment","eligible":true} so I gess i'm part of those 10%.

Apart email notifications, the only workaround I found to access my activity is to open my home page being disconnected.

As I noticed, at the moment they are transferring to the new code only recent accounts (3 months and younger).

That is a shame, Tigresa. At least you'll still have them to hunt on, da?

    Tigress, my friend, are you still getting email notifications? Was trying to send you word of a mutual friend here: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/22325676$comment_id=22621256

    Thank you for sharing this! I'm going to "follow" it because I've seen a bunch of "I can't see my activity" posts recently. Now I can point them to this :)

    You're welcome! I decided to share this because the administration is still silent :(

    So there is gonna be no activity page.

    March 23, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/Usagiboy7

    Not necessarily. Sometimes, when Duolingo is making an especially large change to the website, they don't port all of the features over for the test groups. It saves time an money. This has happened in the past. The missing features showed up only after they rolled the website out for everyone. I don't know if this is the case this time. But, it's possible that they are testing the rest of the website and not the Activity stream.

    "discussion" is the last thing that is keeping me active on Duolingo, so I really hope it is not being discontinued!

    April 16, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/UKLeafs

    I agree with you. It seems very odd to me that a language tutorial site has taken away from it's members the ability to communicate with each other like this. After all language is all about communication.

    NO DIFFERENCE! come on, they made it so there's no activity page, and it really seems like more than 10% are being tested.

    April 6, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/FieryCat

    I have been not collecting the statistics and cannot verify their statement about 10%. I can only say that there are at least two different JS codes.

    So, how do I get back the Activity tab?

    February 26, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/Djenthallman

    Just wait until they make an update of the code which brings Activity back.

    February 27, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/Duolingo_Star03

    How long does that take?

    February 27, 2017

    No one knows

    Genius as usual, Tigresa. How are you today? I haven't lost activity yet, but half of my stream is gone, I can access history less than a week and then it's cycled out, which is a problem, seeing as many discussions I'm having are more than a week old.

    April 7, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/PapyXM

    Don't be afraid, your history is not lost. I can access more than two months of it (and can even send you a backup of it as a file with .maff extension, if you want). I don't have the Activity tab neither, but if you logout of Duolingo and open your Profile, you'll see it. It may be slow to show on screen, but if you browse down to the bottom and wait some 5s then a new bunch of data will arrive, and so on.

    I don't get it. Does it mean I enlightened you?

    April 7, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/Usagiboy7

    Yes. It is such an obvious solution and yet this is the first time someone has pointed it out. It will be helpful to me in the future. So, thank you. :)

    But it's tricky to use, as when you're logged out you can't answer. You can only watch.

    If you think you can open DL in several Tabs of your browser and have Login under several profile, forget it. Whatever the tab you are in, DL will always use the latest Profile you refresh. It will lead you to a real mess, for instance you won't be able to send the message you was just writing and lose it's content.

    I didn't try to play with several windows with a different Identity on each. It may work.

    A/B test. IDK why they're still doing those . . .

    February 26, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/MikeNolan6

    I'm not convinced it's just an A/B test, but the silence from Duolingo is deafening!

    I think FieryCat is right.

    February 26, 2017

    Yup. Definitely not an A/B test.

    I don't know what has happened but if you edit your discussion and put troubleshooting as the topic then someone else will know how to do it.

    You might be part of the A/B testing, as others have mentioned. Here is a link to a post about a/b testing: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/5023812 I hope this helps!

    well for one evening, which was yesterday, I had activity, audio check and flash cards back. Now they're gone. Again!

    So sad. I'm at a 115 day streak and today cannot see my lesson screen in either language... Must I buy a bye with lingots? Is it my computer or the website blocking that screen?

    March 15, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/PapyXM

    I currently have no issue with the website. I would be glad to do your duty today to help you keep your streak, but not in Norvegian. :-/

    Are you equiped with the Streak Freeze of the lingot store?

    March 15, 2017

    https://www.duolingo.com/l-christ

    Thank you for your interest. I did buy a streak freeze, but have, later, been able to do lessons. Temporary glitch, perhaps. Thanks again.
