A Question Regarding "Automatic" Following of Discussions...
So, recently the forums have been worked on and some issues have arose from it. A major thing that is claimed from users is that they cannot follow discussions automatically.
This confuses me because that has never been the case for me. I have always had to manually follow discussions because it never would follow automatically if I commented on a post. Even if it was my own discussion, it would never follow it on its own.
At first, I thought this was due to some Duolingo testing, however, it was explained to me by a moderator that this was most likely not the case. Now that this maintenance has ended, people are bringing this feature up and I am just wondering if me not being able to automatically follow discussions before the maintenance is a problem.
Personally, I don't have an issue with manually following discussions, since that is what I am so used to. So, the changes don't affect me. Though, I am still wondering why I (or possibly others) was excluded from this feature of automatically following discussions since first starting Duolingo. Apparently, this is a default thing that everyone should have the ability to do.
I'm also not auto-following discussions, never have been and I'm glad I'm not. I'm wondering if the e-mail notification setting could have something to do with this (originally, the current problem is probably a bug). It seems like the only thing in the settings that is in anyway related to the issue.
Mine used to follow every discussion I commented on or made by default. So, I kinda got used to it. I guess it isn't a big change, by itself.
But, I'm also not getting my Bell Notifications anymore. I hope these are glitches. It isn't as easy to keep up with the discussions.
