The tedious need to scroll to my topic after answering question sets to achieve a golden star
The new star system is designed to provide fluency. However after reaching the topic - Accusative Case (German) you have to scroll down to get back to it EVERY TIME you complete a set of questions (of which there are 30) in order to get a golden star. This is extremely TEDIOUS and I can imagine that when I get to topic 10 I will dread having to do this and so will skip the last 3 levels. This means that my fluency will suffer.
Please Duolingo can you allow a user to freeze the topic they are working on so that each time they finish a question set or go to bed/work they are able to go back to where they left off. WITHOUT THE CONSTANT SCROLLING DOWN
I am not sure how many question sets there are for each topic but if it is 30 that means in order to complete German I will need to scroll down and click 121 x30 = 3630 scroll downs which will take you longer and longer the further you get down the list. Very frustrating and not great for RSI
I don’t mind scrolling back to practice but once I have my golden star I need to be encouraged to move on
Yes, lots of scrolling and clicks. I would like the option to continue to the next lesson right after I've finished one.
Same happens with threads and it's irritating as hell. You enter any thread especially those a bit further bellow on the page and upon hitting the back button you are always taken back to the top of page.
Same for searches... you do a search, enter one of the selected threads, and when hitting the back button the search is simple gone.
Really... what about ergonomy and usability?
Work-around: open threads in a new tab. It's a pain, but slightly less of a pain than using the Back button.
I agree with you on your second point. I hope that Duo reads the comments that are made here and wiil actually rectify this problem because seriously I shall have to go elsewhere to learn before I go crazy!!
