They Removed Chat bots? Now I'm confused
Me Getting Crowns: Ooh... Well, I like this and this and this and that, but I'm not sure about that... Hmm...
Me realizing they removed Stories/Chat Bots/whatever they are: AHHH WHAT THE HECK DUOLINGO?!
Like, seriously, why? Is there a good reason? If there is I'll delete this post. But seriously, they just released new ones for French and German, right? Why would they do that??
Me too! I am pretty indifferent to this Crowns thing, but I miss my only friends... I mean chat bots.. (yes, I got attached). I didn’t even get a chance to say farewell! This feels like the last scene in Her...when all the A.I. left and everyone was sad and miserable again. I didn’t even get a chance to say au revoir, adios amigos. Where did they go? Are they having a bot party I wasn’t invited to?
This is still online http://bots.duolingo.com. I feel like if they were getting rid of the bots completely they would have taken it down, but maybe they just haven’t gotten around to it yet. There was a post/ announcement when they got read of immersion (I didn’t duolingo then, but I have read the post)
They got rid of immersion then put the post up afterwards! Regarding the chat bots I have never used them but I noticed on the app that I am not allowed to just get on with the lessons. Often when I I click on start pesters me by taking me to clubs instead then asks questions about writing captions or using certain words in sentences, is this anything like bots?
Hi, this is really a "Troubleshooting" issue.
When there is a new glitch attracting a lot of attention, we moderators generally try to find the original post and steer folks towards it so staff can get all the info in one place: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/26849253
I TOTALLY AGREE! I seriously did not mind getting the Crown leveling system. While it annoyed me that I could not see my estimated fluency level, I was happy to see something new. It did not bother me much until I noticed that the chatbots left! Like the title of this discussion states, "i'm confused." These bots must have taken a seriously long time to program and make available. Why would Duolingo take them away? They were really helpful for learning German and I am curious and upset as to why they would remove them from the app.
I loved the chatbots too. They were sweet. However the stories are fun. Quite clever and often with a little twist.
Interestingly today, I found a bug on the app. On level 2 ‘stuff’ in German, the answer was “vehicle” but it wouldn’t accept it, saying it was “vessel”...
Kept redoing it til it relented and accepted the correct answer!
