HELP!!! My tree is holding me hostage!
That might be a little dramatic but I am still having issues switching languages. The list of courses disappear instantly after I click the flag. I just tried to switch to Spanish and am not able to do so. Is there a mod that has any influence with someone who can fix this?
Garpike, I don't understand what this page is about. How does it help me to switch languages? It's in Spanish but I think it says that I speak English. I do speak English. What do I do now? This reminds me of when I was in French and did not know how to get back to English. Luckily, you were up at 1 AM and we still had the Activity Stream. I was able to contact you and you explained how to get back to English. I'm going to try my drop-down menu again. (Thanks for the terminology :)
Ah; you are trying to switch between base (interface) languages? The settings page I posted certainly used to allow that, but I see it has recently been changed to lock you into whatever you're currently in (silly me for thinking DL would have left this useful feature alone). It still allows you to switch between courses in any given interface language, however. Which two courses exactly are you trying to move between?
The old, slow way to switch from, say, EN-from-ES to ES-from-EN is to click 'Ver todos los cursos de idiomas' and then 'Yo hablo Inglés' on the next page, click 'Español para hablantes de inglés' and then the button 'Ir a este curso'.
Hi, Anneysha! M.L. here. I haven't seen you in forever. Listen, I just wanted to say, several months ago, you wrote me a message on my profile, and I couldn't read it because I didn't have e-mail notifications and the bell wasn't working. I just wanted to apologize for not being able to get back to you. I was worried you'd be mad. Anyway. (Probably pointless for me to say, but whatever. I figured it'd be better to mention it.)
Hi ML :) Yes, I am still having trouble. I didn't mind being in the French tree for the last month. Yesterday I just wanted some Spanish. I was able to get to Spanish, but now I cannot get back.
ML, Are you going to Florida for Spring Break? I hope Anne contacts us both. I see that you usually message me around 8:30 my time. Tomorrow I am leaving at 8:00 AM. Anne is awake until 11:00 AM I think.
ML, I am turning my French tree gold. This might take a while since I do less than 50 XP's a day. I was thinking of starting a Gold Tree Club for people working on turning a tree gold. I think this might give moral support. However, I might have to turn my Reverse Spanish tree gold if I can't get back to French. Of course I would need to finish it first ;)
Hi :) I'm so happy that you like the idea. I have been working on getting my French tree to a lovely gold. I was thinking that I would like to have the company of others turning their trees gold.
Please tell me what I can call you. Are you part of the Mad Hatters? I think I saw Theron refer to you with a title?
Anyway, I do get ideas but I have a bit of a problem with organization and follow through. Would you be interested in developing such a Club? I would love to be part of it :)
Hello Lingo! :) How long has it been?
I can hardly wait until the new season of the Librarians. Have you seen the season finale yet? It is beyond mind blowing. I saved it so that I am able to watch it over and over.
Please thank A for me. I miss her terribly. She must be crazy busy!
As you can see, I have been having a problem with my drop down flag. Two days ago I noticed that it is working correctly I wish to thank the kind person who fixed this for me :)
Let's not lose touch again :)
Yes I have seen the finale. Was shocked that she was the bad guy! didn't see it coming, probably because they already suspected her of being evil, but then deemed her safe! threw me off :)
How can we stay in touch?
Was convinced by a friend to start Spanish again. I don't really remember much, but surprisingly when I see the words the memories come back most of the time.
A doesn't talk to me much either. she can go several weeks without a peep :) did say she is busy though.
Hi :) We'll need to put out minds together and figure out how to stay in touch. I suspect that I might need to leave it up to you ;)
Definitely, start Spanish again! I have started again. Spanish is not coming back to me easily though. I haven't worked on it since the Activity Stream ended. I guess my mourning got in the way of my learning.
I am now friends with a Spanish speaking neighbor who is helping me get started again. Poor girl :) She cannot stop laughing. lol This is one mistake that I made last week that still makes her laugh uncontrollably: Yo soy un nino, Yo soy leche. I wonder if she laughs when she sees milk?
Later Ophelia :) Love the picture of your alter ego ;)
Hi Lingo, How is your new normal? I wish Duo had started a new Activity stream like they had promised to do. I feel like a sad fool for believing them. A had a message on her profile a few months ago. She asked why she had to lose her friends and that she misses them. I loved reading what the two of you discussed. Two brilliant minds challenging the upside down world of the rabbit hole! :-) Miss you both.
I hope that you see this.
Hello Anne, I love hearing from you again! :-) I cannot believe that we have not talked for two years.
I still miss how the Activity Stream brought the Duolingo World together. We learned more than each other's languages. We also learned about each other's cultures.
Sunshine Sanctuary still exists. Check Lento's profile for the address. The site is Sooo long. People don't really use it much.
You and I could meet here and I think that Iris will come. The sweet girl shows up sometimes when I unfollow and follow her. Theron (the smart one) is also quite dependable :-) ML said good-bye forever.
How are you doing with the new normal? How bad is the virus where you are? My part of the state of Wisconsin is quite safe but I will not go to a movie theater, eat inside a restaurant or go to a water park until there is a vaccine.
Love you, Stay Safe!!!
Okay, my only thoughts were that when I click on the flag next to my name (the course I'm currently on) it disappears, so I have to just 'hover' over the flag and then move down the list. Sorry I couldn't be of more help, I guess you'll have to use the long-way around for switching until it gets fixed.
No, thank you for asking. Sometimes I will be able to change the tree, but I probably will not be able to change again for a few days. Sometimes more than a few days. I have found a way around my problem. When I get on a tree that I know I will want to come back to I wait until I am reminded by Duo that it is time to do the language. Frequently I am able to get back that way, but not always. Sometimes it stays stuck on the tree that I am on. I've been staying on my French tree since that is my favorite.
Please tell me all about the world of changing your tree on a whim. I am beginning to forget that part of my Duo experience :(
