Just a suggestion
Looking on the "Popular" discussion post, you have to scroll through a lot of the "sticky" items before reaching the others. Maybe Duolingo should have a separate section a to keep the "sticky" stuff so we don't have to see it every time we open discussions.
What do you think?
There are already three different ways of looking at each forum:
"Popular", which has all those "sticky" posts at the top
"New" , which is sorted into date order
"Top all time", which is ordered by overall vote score.
It's one of the three links at the top of each forum. Have a look at the front page of any of the forums - you can't miss it.
You can only see it if you're not logged on an account. That tab is replaced with the following discussions when you're on an account.
Also, "top all time" shows the most upvoted discussions over time but "Popular" shows the latest discussions with the most upvotes. They are not the same tabs and concepts.
No, you can still see it if you're logged in. Click on any of the individual forums, rather than the forum front page.
If you open discussions the first ten discussion have a label called "Sticky" which means they stay at the top. Meanwhile you have to scroll down past that to see any new content. Some of the stuff I've seen is 2 years old.
Uh, there's this "New" section that appears alongside "Popular", if you click it you can see the new content that has been published today.
But that doesn't show discussions that are popular, as GabePeace is asking for; just shows everything in chronological order. He's saying, and I agree, that it's annoying to find the popular discussions of the day because of all the stickies in the way.
