Official Unofficial Duolingo Discord™
Hello there all Duolinguists. I am here once again for my monthly repost to Duolingo to educate you all on the existance of the Official Unofficial Duolingo Discord. So, last June, I created a Discord server for all Duolingo learners alike to get together and discuss language learning, and practice their speaking as a community. For those of you who don't know what Discord is, it is an application and website which allows you to voice chat and type/text with users in real time. The Official Unofficial Duolingo Discord is currently the biggest Duolingo Discord Server in existance with 915 Members at the very moment (Around 250-300 Active Members). Over the 11+ months it has been around, the Official Unofficial Duolingo Discord (OUDD) has accumulated a very friendly community. There are tons of people, learners, just like you who would love to discuss language learning with you. Not to mention, we have 9 Friendly Staff Members who would be more than glad to assist you with any problems you may have during your experience.
Wondering what all of our features are? Let me list a few below!
-Unique level system.
-The ability to choose which language chatrooms you'd like to see.
-Bots with games such as Rock Paper Scissors, and an 8 Ball Feature!
-A chatroom that lets you post which languages you speak Natively/Fluently, and request assistance with help learning a language.
-A room that allows you to post a picture of your golden owl certificates and get special roles for completing trees.
-Fair rules that are easy to follow.
-A google document with over 11 Pages of information to help you get started on the server.
Miss your activity streams? Well don't be sad any longer! Discord is an excellent alternative. You get to type to people just like before, but you can also VOICE CHAT with people! :D
Sound like something that interests you! I will supply you all with 2 links below. The first is the link to join our Discord server, and the 2nd is the link to the google doc in which contains all of the useful information about Discord, the server, how to join language chatrooms, and much more!

Hope to see you all there! :D
Is there a video tutorial somewhere for this specific implementation of Discord? I confess, I'm probably too old for this, but I installed the PC version and uploaded JPGs of my two completed trees, yet see that I'm still just a "learner" at Level 21 for both. I also have no idea how to "choose language chatrooms [sic]" or do anything else. Instead, IM boxes keep appearing with unsettling ring tones on the bottom right of my screen with messages in English from people I don't know about god knows what, e.g., "Queue completed."
Are there French, German and Russian chat rooms and, if so, how do you use the application to get to them?
And where do you turn off the reception and notification of messages from people you don't know about topics you didn't think you subscribed to. Specific instructions in whole notes, please. Or just tell me you don't want old people, i.e., baby boomers, and I'll uninstall the program.
All of the info is in this google document: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1PHQNa-yYufIgOG4cSH3YZvuFd9Rj58lLunTPAmOnChc/edit?usp=sharing
If you still can't figure it out, I'll help you. :)
