What's going on with the Duolingo features?
First of all, I gotta thank all the Duolingo staff for such a great effort they've put on every course released.
But still I'd like to express my demotivation and frustration about some features that were previously working, but not anymore.
These are the items Duolingo's lost and not only me, but many users miss a lot and it'd be better having them back:
• Language quizzes.
• Profile activity streams.
• Since the new update, when having speaking exercises and it pumps up a certain sentence in which you have a repeated word on it, it seems that it only recognizes the first repeated word and that's it, and as in the case below, one ends up getting the exercise wrong because of it.
• Bell notifications on the right upper corner.
I've certainly seen that many, many users have already posted about these issues and many other ones, but still the they get the same response: ''We're working on it.''
Hope you guys fix it or at least try doing it.
Thank you all.
Yeah, I really want profile activity stream to come back. It was an opportunity for me to speak with my friends in other languages and have fun. Now that it's removed I feel bored :(
I miss all the helpful and motivating stats which were replaced with a meaningless "Crown level" number. These included the language progress scale, language fluency percentage, XP rating (what's the sense to have an XP goal per day without a cumulative rating?) and total words learned counter. Also not loving the removal of the XP graph from iOS.
You can still see the golden skills, skill strength %, skill decay, XP graph and even new parameters in your unofficial but very useful personal progress pages in www.duome.eu:

I can also confirm that speaking exercises have techical problems. But not very severe problems. Most of the time my answers are accepted.
Can you describe what were bell notifications? In what way notifications are not delivered conveniently in current system? At least in mobile notifications are delivered very conveniently and user can easily stop seeing specific notifications.
