How to...?

...write to another Duo user? Early it was possible to do this via the Activity but this feature is deleted now. But sometimes I still get messages that say that someone commented on my stream. When I go to their Activity Stream though, I'm not able to write a comment there. Is there another way to do this that I just don't know of? I'm a bit confused but curious, too. Thanks for every reply!

What happens when you try to write on their activity? Most of the older açcounts you can write on them and if they have email notification on they can see it.

There isn't even the field where it says 'Enter a comment'. It completely disappeared

Well I'm only guessing but I think they are rolling out in stages and the rest of us will soon be in your boat. That's why I try to get people to add Facebook

Hm, that's a pity! Yeah, a week ago I also tried adding my Facebook to my profile here... Did also not work!

An AB test is when a population is divided into two theoretically identical groups group A is the control and group B gets something changed and then they measure to see what impact the change had. For example Duo changed the algorithm for fluency on a group B to raise their fluency scores then measured how long they practiced versus people with the existing algorithm. They determined that practice actually went down the higher their fluency scores were. Duo does literally hundreds some last weeks and some years.

Weird I can see and click on yours and mine maybe they are ending that too and you are in the AB test to see what happens

That'd be nice, I guess! But what does AB stand for?

Give it a minute or two to load, but depending on the time when your account was made, it may or may not work. I have been here 4 or 5 months, and I can do it.

I'm already here since 2015 ;)
And no, giving it a minute to load doesn't work either :/

You've been moved to the new website (as have I). I get notifications in the "bell" and in my email inbox, but I cannot write back to people who write to me. There is no place on their profile for us to write to them. All we can do is wait while staff develop new communication tools.

Would that be an example of the temporary fix duo was putting in place so the moderators could contact users about unacceptable behavior. Yes I am sarcastic and pessimistic and rarely wrong in that regard.
