How can I contact users?
I've been a user for quite some time now, and since the activity stream was removed, and I wish to contact a user, but since that is removed, how can I contact them?
If you post on their stream, they will receive a notification of what you have said to them
I still have the old website. A few days ago someone posted something to me and I saw it on my notification bell, but the Activity Stream shows nothing. So if you post on their stream, they could see it if they get emails from Duolingo or maybe they'd see it under the bell messages.
When I go to someone's profile I get to see a message box in which I can write and still post to them.
They get a bell notification of it in the top right corner.
However, the notifications can only hold five messages, and I think the messages have to be quite short - otherwise the ends of them probably get cut off.
If they have their notifications turned on they will still receive your messages by email. I would recommend using discord or some other message app to communicate, and sending your friends the invite links. If anyone is interested I can share some links to discord chattrooms that many duolingoers are using already.
