I can barely believe it! Don't know if it's a coincidence or really true, but I posted my idea in the forums a couple of weeks ago that the skills should be colored according to level. And today, my level ones are blue, the twos are green, and the fives are gold. It looks so beautiful! Thank you Duolingo engineers for listening!

I was just about to whine that I'm not part of the test group on a new feature yet again, but I actually do have this update. Yay! Looks awesome.

Nice to know. We'll see if they roll it out to everyone eventually. That might depend on how people react to this thread and other ones regarding the new color scheme.

It may be just a coincidence. Maybe one of their engineers had the same idea. But I'm happy just the same. Except for level three being red. I wouldn't want a red tree. :)

Actually I find red quite appropriate for Chinese and Russian and even Welsh, although a mix of red and green would probably be best. And I suppose Dutch ought to be Orange although I doubt I have the patience to achieve that.

That's not the way the staff works, they meet from time to time to propose, develop and test new features according to their own ideas.

I just posted a discussion in the forum, like this one. However, it may be just a coincidence. Maybe one of their engineers thought of the same thing.

That's the old system. As Antonnio mentioned above, some users will be part of the beta test while others continue with the old system.

Great minds think alike or something along that vein ... I posted the same exact suggestion three weeks back :D

https://www.duolingo.com/comment/26846184

I guess when multiple people independently come up with the same (IMO good) idea, they listen ...
