How to contact other DL members
Hello. Previously we all had a wall where we could chat with others duolingers. I have understood that the walls have been closed when the servers has been changed : the cost was too high at this time for DL. Is there still a way to contact other members we are following or who are following us. Il thought to write my email adresse in my profil but it is not a great solution... Thanks for your help.
It actually is quite sad that in order to feel like a community, members have to go to third party websites/apps to connect with each other. It makes it difficult to re-acquaint and motivate yourself to use Duolingo.
I'm not sure if anyone has bothered to make one or if any of the old regulars of Duo are around: but a discord server to hang out with everyone would be awesome.
totally agree. I am hanging in here while I hope some way of forming community will come back at some point.
The only way I see for now is to connect FB account with Duo account and access each other's profiles, and talk from there :) But I recommend doing it only if you're very close on Duo already, or at least make side profile on FB, not your main ones, and connect those ones with Duo.
Some of us don't have and don't want Facebook accounts. It is bizarre how DL prohibits sharing personal information here whilst so painlessly facilitating its outsourcing to Facebook.
I agree with that. It had activity thread before, but it has been taken down. There is Clubs function over the app, but not on the web. With the Clubs you could make a Club and speak with fellow duolingoers over there, as well as compete in language learning, gaining XP.
If you want that feature on PC, I recommend downloading BlueStacks and activating Duolingo with it. https://www.bluestacks.com/
An IRC chatroom or some such has never been discussed? Could be a more flexible solution.
The best bet is probably to put public social media contacts or a website in your profile. I recommend against putting your email address in public on the internet, because it can be harvested by spammers.
