Can I configure forgotten accents to be a FAIL?
I am losing precision in the use of accents by passing tests in which I mistype diacritics. The leniency is having a negative effect on my learning, please allow me to configure stricter checks.
As of yet, Duolingo has not had any configurable options regarding corrections or level of difficulty. I can only speculate, but it may be that differing standards for various students could make it more difficult to analyze the data. It's just a guess on my part. Or, it may just not be a priority for them.
Suggestions from users don't generally appear to have a major effect on the direction of Duolingo, so I just figure out how best to work with what we have.
I make a written note of either "almost correct" and fail, so the leniency has not been not an issue for me either way.
I appreciate your pragmatism and I am ready to embrace a "defeatist" attitude towards my ability to change the course of development, should it come to that, especially after seeing enough evidence of being ignored. Seems like a diffused feeling, that of doubting these posts can change anything at all. I hope you'll forgive my, perhaps naive, impetus, until proven otherwise. I wish it weren't so hard to contribute ideas to the software.
