A suggestion for Duolingo

Yes, yes, I know. There are already so many suggestions for Duolingo, but hopefully, this one is relevant.

For particular reasons, I am trying to access my discussion about Music being a language, but I can't find it. I've tried searching the Discussion many times, but to no avail. For some reason, searching the name of the Discussion seems to never help. Obviously, searching the word "music" takes too long and searching my username only brings up discussions where my name is mentioned in a comment, not even my own comments. The only time I can see my discussions is when someone comments on it. Honestly, it's very frustrating.

My suggestion: On a user's profile, have a list of all the Discussions they have made, making it easier for the user and other people to access.

What do you think of this suggestion?

This used to be done in activity. When they took activity away earlier this year they said they had something in the pipeline to replace it. So perhaps you'll get your wish soon, but don't hold your breath.

Yes, I remember, although I didn't know there was an announcement, seeing as I took a long break from Duolingo and have only recently come back. Thanks! :)

They didn't say that they would replace it with an equivalent system, they said that they would replace it with a new feature for Duolingo, which I believe is Duolingo Stories. From https://www.duolingo.com/comment/22226909:

Unfortunately, the Activity Stream was like a very old car that you have to spend lots of money and time to keep up. Instead, we decided to use that money towards saving up for a new car, which is coming soon.

I thought that the stories replaced immersion

I was just speculating. I'm guessing that Stories or Labs was the "new car", but I could be completely off the mark.

Yes, I have been thinking about that!! It would be a great addition! But I doubt Duolingo would do that :(

You'd need to click the Follow Discussion button for every discussion you make. I'd prefer if that wasn't required because it's easy to forget to do that.

I like this idea, although for now you can just follow all discussions that you post.
