Duolingo Clubs NOT Leagues
I would like to opt of the Leagues that have been arbitrarily pushed to the Android version of the app. I was extremely active in my club and wish to continue to do so.
I have zero interest in 'faceless' competition which the leagues seem to be.
Dear DuoLingo, My friend has leagues and I have clubs. Both are good as they are for now. Can we just have both at the same time? Please! Please! Please! Please! Julian
Yeah, I do not get it. I do not mind leagues, but why remove clubs in the process. To be honest I probably could do without either, but I am already confused with blue and red lingots in different courses. I want other things worked in, more features of the web version in the app would be welcomed.
Welcome to the world of A/B testing. Not everyone has Leagues, some still have Clubs.
Duolingo tries these experiments to see if the outcomes are better one way or the other. (Don't ask what outcome they're looking for. It may not be the same as the one you're looking for.)
The only way I've heard to avoid getting into an A/B test is to create a classroom, with your tree being the only one in the classroom. I don't know the details, but I'm sure that someone will let you know, assuming that's the way you want to go.
I really hate this type of testing, cause some of us stuck with clubs want Leagues too.
Are you using android or iOS?
I am using iOS. I got out of my club by simply pressing „leave club“ in the club or leaderboards menu ( idont know what exactly it was) Then there came the leagues automatically.
Duolingo's staff are working on that bug
[Note] We are aware of a bug making it so a small amount of people see Leaderboards instead of their active Club, and are actively working on a resolution. Thank you for your patience around that.
You are right, totally right!
Duolingo's staff don't sufficiently realize, that users are being discouraged by all the unsolved bugs since the big crash in spring 2017 and the new bugs since the introduction of the "crown method" in spring 2018.
Fortunately, a lot of the language courses are made by unpaid volunteers. And those courses remain excellent.
I have never liked learning languages, but Duolingo's course "Dutch for English speakers" is not boring at all. It's even a challenging course for Dutch natives like me, who want to brush up their school English.
I don't like the leagues. I prefer the clubs too. Let's save them. Please sign the petition if you haven't already. https://www.ipetitions.com/petition/please-save-duolingo-clubs
I formed a Club 2 years ago. The only requirement to remain in the club was that you the member earn a minmum of 10 xp per day. 40 % of the members had streaks of more than a year. Several had 2 year straks. We would leave messages of encouragement grammar tips and study suggestions. Many of the members would applaud the special and personal touch of our club. I now just use Duolingo as a 10 practice platform. After my club was exploded by Duolingo I decided to buy the Study Spanish Camino Del Éxcito course. It to is impersonal but it is comprehensive. We should have been given the option to retain our club.
I was a Plus Member. That should have been made a perk.
Obviously customer service needs to be a gigher priority. Otherwise the product is great. It seems that folks that are obviously great technicians are manage customer service decisions.
