I have gotten in contact with Jolynne. Thanks!

Hi Jolynne!

Sorry to draw attention to you like this. You aren't in any kind of trouble. The opposite, actually. :)

I have attempted to reach you through the email you provided Duolingo for your account. However, I haven't had any luck. I have something for you but the time window is closing and I don't know if I can keep it open another day. (I know, sounds shady, right? It's not. You'll understand once I can get that info to you.)

If the email you registered with your account is the correct one, please check your spam/trash folders. It might have gotten filtered out. The email is coming from no-reply@duolingo.com with a subject title "Message from a moderator".

If your registered email is not current, please don't post your current email address here. Instead, update your settings https://www.duolingo.com/settings and let me know that you have in the comments below.

This is kind of a big deal and I don't want you to miss out on it. :)

(For those concerned that I am misusing the forums, this is related to official Duo stuff and I have exhausted all other options.)

Thanks!

Hi Usagi. I just checked my settings and the email is up-to-date. I will search through and try to find the message. It didn't go to my spam folder as I checked that.

you have entirely piqued my interest. Sadly, not my business. :(

https://www.duolingo.com/Rey_Ren

The reason I asked was because it is sort of our business if we are going to get a new moderator. Usagiboy7 can just answer yes or no, and then we can all leave it if it is a no and we can congratulate Jolynne if it is a yes.

My guess is that it's the thing where Duolingo asked people to submit stories about how Duolingo changed their lives, or something like that. I remember it saying that it prefered people that live close enough to go to Pittsburgh to talk with Duolingo in person. I had thought about writing something for that, since I live in the Washington DC area and could drive to Pittsburgh.

My thoughts exactly - jolynnedougherty posted a story about getting a promotion at work. Something very concrete. Just the sort of economic enablement thing that I think Duolngo was after.

Nice! I'm a little late, but better late then never! Also, what is a duoversary (I'm pretty sure I have a clue of what it is tho).

Also, what does it take to be invited? Active on duo, and live close by?

Also, is she in the picture?

A Duoversary is an anniversary for how long Duolingo has existed. Though, 5 years marks how long the company has been out of beta.

hmm, I think I'll keep the criteria a secret. ;)

She might be. But, I'll leave that up to her. I can say, however, is that if you squint closely, there are a couple of bunnies, one with four legs and one with two. ;)

There is a good possibility of that, if we can manage to get a hold of them on time.

I'll keep an eye out. She has a 131 day streak, so she should be on almost every day. Not counting freeze streaks and streak necklaces.

It is if there are 170,000,000 people on Duolingo. ;)

(Although... Jolynne is one of 7 people. So, the percentage isn't exact.)

https://www.duolingo.com/JackMartian

I could name right now at the top of my head alone more than 170,000,00 Duolingo users. I think. I won't try, because it'd be considered spam. In fact, this is probably considered spam right now too isn't it?

I'm sorry! It was all usagiboy's fault! ... And...somewhat...mine?
