III. Previous Weekly Incubator Updates
See this index of WIUs.
Explanation of the data: Lack of previous data
Progress is displayed for three weeks ago only if the weekly values were self-reported to us by the teams. Our automatic progress calculation for non-self-reporting courses cannot be performed retroactively because we lack the necessary data. (But each week's values will be available the following week, and so the charts will populate next week.)
I just am wanting to say how wonderful Nueby and Jrikhal are. All the many things they do and how they do them. In particular - I am saying this - for one of the things that is not one of their major achievements by a long shot, and that is the WUI. Thank you, both of you. You inspire us. You help give us focus. You give so much to today, for the sake of tomorrow.
( Yes I am also part of this team. However the reason it is able to be produced to such a high and consistent quality - is down to Jrikhal and Neuby. )
Thank for giving motivation and interest. And also thank you for your patience.
I know how hard it is to be on the waiting end of things. Yet - should your really want something .... always remember there is something you can do. And that you can even do within our community.
Here is a unique pearl, waiting each and every one of you - who can dream to have have the right stuff - to do so.
If you seek ideas. - please ask me. For by your desire, and the wealth of the serendipity of learning, and opportunities and the unique brilliance that lies only within you .... it is in you that is spirit of the song of the future.
Any news from Indonesian team? It looks like they were fluctuating around 30% for a few months :)
Merci Jrikhal en général pour l'aide que vous apportez à tous et en particulier pour avoir été notre « maître » quand avons repris le cours IT<> FR. Qu'aurions nous fait sans votre aide?
Can we put Japanese for English speakers back in Fase 1 at 33%? Since its currently 1/3 emerged from fase 1 and only available on iOS? As it gets released on android it should be moved to 67% in the coming few weeks. Only after web release its truly a beta course, later this year.
I appreciate where you are coming from. But we would be forever explaining the situation. Honestly, I doubt the course should have even been displayed here to start with. It is not run by volunteers, it was mostly constructed outside the Incubator, it does not follow the rules us mortals have to, it never provided useful data to track, and it clearly continues to behave oddly.
No, sorry, that's not the choice made for this WIU.
If we were to put 33% when only release on one platform then many non-Phase 1 courses would have to be put back and all the above courses would be below 33%...
The percentage of this WIU is about incubator's work and this is finished for JA<-EN course. Release on more platforms is not an incubator work (it's staff technical work).
To find out what Helpfulduo has recently updated us on over the last weekish, you can access via this readable
I will be intending to keep this up to date on at least a weekly basis, if not on most days. You can check the date I have last updated it - by reading the UTC time in the header.
Let me know if this is a useful thing to do, to also assist in keeping you informed as to news of things happening in Duolingo.
Jrikhal prend toujours un plaisir à nous renseigner sur la communauté et nous pouvons tous compter sur lui! Mais je ne comprends pas pourquoi on donne toujours des dizaines ou des centaines de lingots aux modérateurs ou aux administrateurs mais pas à moi!?
