Crown system and strenghtening bar?

Hi, unfortunately for me i clicked the option with crown system and now my almost all golden tree is gone.

Duolingo was great for me thanks to option to strengthen skills, especially via strenghtening bar that i could click everytime when some lessons got weak by time. Now how can i know which skill is getting weak? How can i improve my language, when i dont know what to revise? Should i do it manually? Then whats the purpose of this site?

So the question is, how i can reverse that? How can i get back to old system?

Or can developers explain me how to improve your language without knowing what to revise?

I would have liked to see a system that incorporated aspects of both systems. Perhaps you only gain crowns by practicing lessons you have sufficiently forgotten, or perhaps practicing those lessons gives you two crowns instead of one. Either way, completely getting rid of the old system was a bad, bad idea. It's hard finding anyone who thinks otherwise, and I hope they'll eventually come to their senses and change it back to the way it was.

I want my percentage back! Can I do that, somehow??

Currently I'm using this script to see which skills have the most old words:

It's not perfect because it doesn't show you skill by numbers of sentences, but by numbers of words (from the words tab) and in some courses the link between words and sentences is not good any more, but better than nothing. Before the crowns it was also only partly matching with the color of the skills, but I also practiced skills with less than 50% strength even if they were already gold.
