What ever happened to the stories?

There used to be a page on here where you could translate books, etc. Where did it go?

No, because I hate translating.
I love troubleshooting and I try to improve my English by reading and writing in the English troubleshooting forums.

Savez-vous tous qu'il existe une alternative participative : translatihan.com Allez voir ! C'est sympa. Conçue par des anciens de duolingo. J'y suis depuis quinze jours.

Why was it removed? Did it fail the testing or are they looking to expand it?

Originally it was going to be the center of their business model, but that didn't work out. There were legal issues with the EU, and it was full of copyrighted material. Children were XP farming there. It would require a lot of moderation. And not that many were using it.

Immersion was his idea - it was probably quite hard for him to decide to get rid of it.

No, it was because they didn't have the resources to support it, it wasn't bringing enough money, it was glitchy, clogged with spam, and it was way too easy to cheat. It was a chaotic mess.

It was eliminated after the second (?) revision of the website. I miss it, I enjoyed translating articles from French to English. It required lots of monitoring. I could target articles that were interesting to me; that was very interesting, and I learned a lot by doing it.

I guess it is time for you to start learning Portuguese or Spanish!!! Why?

Have you already heared about BETA Labs and stories (not available in French right now)?
