Attention jolynnedougherty (Accomplished! ty!)

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.)

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.


JOLYNNE, Hi!!!!! Ok, if you still have your login deets, go check your fb messages then, under "message requests". :)


Usagiboy...I found her! hehe...


Good onya! lol



"It is a secret at the moment. Hopefully, we can say something next month. :)"

I'll be here. Sittin' and waiting. I'm not leaving this discussion fyi. ;)


You are my favorite moderator.


Aww, thanks ^^


Is he/she going to be a moderator? Please don't think I am a spammer.


I thought that too. You're not a spammer. Just faster than I was to ask that.


I don't ... And I'm super curious, as well : )


Message received and answered. Thank you everyone for trying to get the message to me :)


We're all hugely curious... As and when you're allowed and willing to tell us, we'll be all ears :)


It is a secret at the moment. Hopefully, we can say something next month. :)


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


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.


Not that I'm aware of at this time. Hopefully, something Jolynne will enjoy much more than that. :)


Admin? Or working at Duo?


Duolingo is located in Pittsburgh, she lives next to Pittsburgh.

Take a guess ;).


oh don't worry though, I didn't say it like that to criticize anyone else who asked.


Guys, upvote this comment so that what's-her-name can see it. And any other person that can contact her as well.


Alright folks, the big reveal! Jolynne was invited to the 5th Duoversary party!


It was so great to meet you Jolynne! <3


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. ;)


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.


Ooooh. I hope we all get to know later what's in store for her.


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.


Jolynne's already been on today for that. So, I might have missed them :( But, hopefully, we can somehow manage to reach them. :)


Let's hope so. I bet a lot of people here would love to take her place, ;)


I am 170,000,000% certain of that. ;)


lol. I'm not sure that's mathematically possible. XD


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

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


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?


Wow! That's a lot of users. My sister guessed that there were 10,000 users on duolingo, I guess she was a little off. ;)


Upvote so that she/he can see it!


Course creator for a new addition to the incubator? That's the only thing I can think of.

(Hopefully for Finnish or Icelandic.)


Unfortunately, no.


You will tell us though eventually. Right?


Most likely, yes. That is my preference. I've got to check with staff. I have reason to believe they'll ask me to wait until next month.


Kinda ironic the way you're trying to contact her compared to the job offer as recruiter xD.


It's not a job offer. :P (That would be pretty weird if it were though. lol)


Not a job offer? Damn, the puzzle seemed to fit so well.


Hmm probably a refund for some bad gems she bought.
