Wackiest feature suggestions

.

What is the silliest thing you can think of for a Duolingo feature?

Ready? Set... GO!

I want to see a breakdancing Duo wearing bunny ears whenever I complete a Timed Practice with a perfect score.

(Unfortunately, bunnies are not super impressive breakdancers. This is why Duo needs to do it. ^^;)

Here's an off-the-wall idea:

We all know that the official Duolingo map of Northern Europe looks like this:

...but wouldn't it be fun to throw our geographical caution to the wind and pretend that there were, in fact, another country there? It could be known as the Fictional Invented Northern Land (or FIN-land for short), in which the Fictional Invented Northern Native Speakers would speak some strange new language for which Duolingo could sportingly introduce a new course.
For maximum comic effect, Duolingo could make this new language absurdly difficult, with fifteen-odd cases and all manner of bizarre complexities.

A good way to gauge whether or not this idea would be popular might be to see whether thousands of users repeatedly ask for it all the time.

I agree with this so much! But it also seems that Duolingo's map of Northern Europe is also missing Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, although it is not depicted on the map that you provided...

November 15, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/garpike

Are you referring to the map's depiction of the four provinces of the Klingon Empire, sandwiched between Poland and Russia? Where else do you think the hundreds of millions of Klingon-speakers, who make this important language such an essential addition to Duolingo, reside?!

Usagi, just WHERE did you find that demonic owl?

November 14, 2017

Duo isn't demonic, just woke up to an insult (several, now) and no coffee. :P Poor Duo. :'(

November 14, 2017

He looks like it, though. I sure hope he isn't so insulted he shuts down the site. That would be terrible.

November 14, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FrenchByte

Oh, that's from when you get 0 XP. For timed practice? Or before streak is completed? Anyhow, adding those eyebrows is freaking me out. Yes, Duo, I completed my streak; I did the Pig Latin course and you aren't SUPPOSED to show up; I mean Privacy! Uh, I guess he/she just won't listen.

November 14, 2017

Yeah lol. Or an Elf course ;)

November 14, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Usagiboy7

Let's get some silly fun ones though that aren't geared towards making people feel bad :P

Oh! Here's one, what if we had a feature like the Maurader's map in Harry Potter, except that it shows us where Duo is in the world right then. Maybe a little cultural and linguistic blurb could pop up when he reaches a new place. :D

Wizard Duo Owl

November 14, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/idkhbtfm

I just had an idea based off yours. What if there was a feature like Quizlet, where it shows where everyone in the world is located who is currently on Duolingo right now is!

November 14, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Usagiboy7

idkhbtfm, I saw something similar in Duolingo HQ when I visited this summer. Only, the map randomly selects one username out of all of the people who begin a lesson right then and shows it for a second and then pulls up another one that just started a lesson. It doesn't hone in to exactly where they are, as you can see from the map. But, gives an idea of where in the world they are.

November 15, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/idkhbtfm

That sounds pretty cool!

November 15, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FrenchByte

If you made all users tiny yellow pixels, it would make an interesting map.

November 14, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DreamOfFlying

That sounds like a great Idea. Or you could pay lingots to see where someone was from.

November 15, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FrenchByte

Oh, that would be nice! And maybe a little signal of arrival by appearing on your home page when he gets to the country linked to your language? It would be a cool effect.

November 14, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Arachnje

Wacky? Where do I even start!
- An AI interactive Duo that among other things, gets angry, packs and leaves you if you miss your lessons for a number of days that you decide on your settings.
- A mobile (blazing fast) skill that you need to chase around the screen and capture to unlock (inspired by the snitch from Harry Potter).
- A lingot-eating alligator that pops up and starts munching on your lingots if you make a certain number of mistakes that you decide on your settings.
- A custom-made multi language course that includes skills from all the languages the user is learning.

November 14, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Usagiboy7

A mobile (blazing fast) skill that you need to chase around the screen and capture to unlock (inspired by the snitch from Harry Potter).

Reminds me of those typing games, where you have to type fast enough to catch a thing. That would be so cool! It could be adjusted for Timed Practice. You have to help Duo fly far enough to visit their target country! :D

November 14, 2017

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/FrenchByte

Oh yeah, that would be SO cool. There would be bursts or landmarks and you would have to type pretty fast to beat it, and then you would fly off. After typing everything or selecting everything, Duo flies off to visit France, and wears the flag.

Wouldn't it be a great idea?

ohhhh - garpike has given me an idea !

How about a MOON LANGUAGE - and make it ridiculously easy.
Perhaps based on sign language grammar - to compliment ... lets say ASL. Because that is encompassing a minority, and would then also be an additional tool for people to learn ASL.

And that it did not follow the unusual gendering of inanimate objects that some languages, like Latin languages use. And discouraged the use of honorifics, that are often used to pigeon hole people, and raise some people above others in status.

And that it is based on a simple phonetic script, rather than the complications of the English crazy spelling rules.

Of course - placed on the Moon - so that does not favor any one region or culture. Yet honored all of them. As it honors all identities in equality.

ooooooooh I so love that dream.

Now if I could just find a good little gif or picture to promote Moon Language ....

It will have to wait to later. The sun is still out, and I have to climb back up on a roof.
Roo needs to return to laboring.

                          A challenge option where you can challenge another user to a competition for a certain skill or course. Whoever answers the most questions correctly wins. But: there are no hints, and whenever you miss a question, an angry Duo flies up to the top bar and takes away five lingots. The prize would be as high as the challengers set it, up to 500 lingots, that are taken from the loser's lingot amount.

                          Great idea! I remember on Pottermore, there were random pairings and you dueled with whoever was randomly paired against you. I'd love to see a Timed Practice version of your suggestion so that people couldn't just pull up an online dictionary to cheat. I like the Lingot wager too. Though, I'd cap it at 2 lingots per A Duel of Duos Dueling for a Duo of Lingots. And instead of an angry flying duo, there would be an egg on each side under people's usernames. When one person wins, the egg on one side disappears and the egg on the other side hatches a pair of lingots. :D

                            idkhbtfm, I had to look that up because I'd never heard of it before. It was difficult to find one I could link to here but I found these kids who are already 1,000 years better at dancing than I am. They are teaching the dab in their music video. This took me down the rabbit hole of looking at dance move names on Youtube. And, I'm not sure but I think some of those kids make a cameo in this dance video called Watch Me Whip/Nae Nae. This video is basically an awesomely creative (and tune catchy) way of turning the names of dance moves into a song and a dance video.

                            Specialization multiplies vocabulary to offer greater specificity. ^_^

                              On Christmas, duo is wearing a christman hat that you can tap, and it falls off then duo picks it back up again.

                              On Easter, make duo have an eag basket hat which has eggs in it that pop open when you press it.
