Suggestion: Ways to make Activity more useful, informative and fun.
I personally like the Activity on the user's profiles but I think it can be more useful for everyone. Here are a couple of features I would like to see:
To be able to see when someone completed their tree
To be able to see when someone took a test
To be able to see when someone uploaded an article
To be able to see when someone started a new language
Who likes the idea please upvote it so that people from Duolingo would be able to see it :)
That would be nice. =) I feel like we'd have an easier time motivating each other as a community if this was implemented.
Maybe a notifier of a name change. People have gotten annoyed at me because I change my name so often and do not know who I am.
Great idea! I basically use the Activity Stream to follow the native speakers' comments on various sentences. You'd be surprised to see how much more you can learn that way!! :)
I would like to see a flag that tells us the users native language.
Duolingo could perhaps then use it as well, by messaging anyone who is native in a particular language, if they need more help to incubate a course in that language.
That would be great! This has been suggested a lot of times, hopefully the staff add this feature.
I would like a filter on the activity stream, so you can find specific things like messages or forum posts even if there are a lot of other activities mentioned.
Also I think it makes sense that activities older than (a week?) are not visible to anyone other than yourself and staff/mods, to minimise the risk of people being taken advantage of.
I find it a little creepy when people randomly comment on old activity on the stream. It's buried in the sand among all the other activity and yet they choose that to comment on. Weird.
One option to add to the Activity Stream - We should be able to block people from viewing our activity (not just block them from messaging us). I have had some users follow me who were also following 1000+ people! It seems to be some sort of a contest (based on comments) or maybe a way to stalk people (?), but it's rather annoying and a little spooky.
I would add "(User) took a (language) lesson". I remember that activity could be seen on the old Duo version, I miss that.
That would be awesome, but if they were to add the certificate score one, I think it should be an option since I don't score well in certificate tests, so I wouldn't want it displayed on my profile. Speaking of which! I'm going to try one and see if I improve!
Great idea.. Especially the end point. And the time when someone uploaded and article. As long as it is not emailed without being requested, like the daily things ... Very motivating but my poor inbox is groaning...
I like where you're going. It would be nice to see more of the people you're following's activity on the activity page. Did what I just said make sense?
Can you make a app for windows 8 phone? It is annoying to keep bring my iPod everywhere with me since half of stores don't have WiFi.
Hola Andrew, I love the feature of being able to hover over a word when one is doing a new section and having the definition(s) drop down; unfortunately once that section is completed this feature goes away. I think it would be very useful to have feature permanently embedded in the section tree so even if the sections is completed and turns to gold I could still go back and quiz myself on words. My memory is very good, but way too short!!
