Crowdsourcing and the inability to report correct answers

When I joined Duolingo, one of the better features was the crowdsourcing. Being able to report answers that should have been accepted made the platform seem less arbitrary, less likely to value one dialect over another. It also took away some of the frustration of having a correct answer disallowed.

I know there are a lot of necessary changes happening currently, but when I access the Duo mobile Web site, I'm no longer able to report sentences. I am currently doing the new Spanish-to-English units, and while those are better than when they first rolled out, they still need some work. (And of course, they got better through users reporting things.) If my fear is correct that we could completely lose this ability, I don't think Duolingo could continue to be an effective learning tool. I've seen how raw beta courses are, and I can't imagine them never getting improved.

Please someone tell me that once all the upgrades are in place, we will still be able to make suggestions on sentences and answers that should have been accepted.

Doing lessons on the iOS mobile browser version I don't believe I have ever had a report button.
