Doulingo Update

Dear Luis, I have a few questions about this Duolingo update, and if you answer that would be great! I am not really sure what this update has to offer and I am not loving the sacrifices we have to make for it.

  1. No profiles I can't talk to my friends at all! And when we post a discussion to chat it gets deleted.

  2. No activity I have noticed the activity on Doulingo go down because of this update. I barely get on because there is no one to talk to.

  3. Longer to load I will type Duolingo into my web browser and it will take like six minutes to upload!

That is all I have to say. If anyone can answer my top question, " When is this update over?" Please answer! Thanks for your time Luis!

I'll answer the questions for you. Luis and the rest of the team don't really read these discussions too often because they are very busy working on other projects, but they do from time to time.

  1. The discussion forums are for language related topics, not general chats etc. That is most likely why yours was deleted.

  2. Duolingo is working on a new activity stream like feature which they are saying will be better.

  3. They are also working on a new website "rewrite", so it will be much faster than before.

Hope this helps!
