Daily experience points graph now vanished. Why?

Where did it go? Why has it been removed? It was only ever on the desktop version, and now it is just a blank space.

Why do you keep changing things, and/or taking them away? I am feeling like a lab-rat, here, constantly experimented on. Well, I am very much needled by all the needless needling. I've got pincushion syndrome.

Please STOP the constant tampering with the program. It isn't helping, and it is making us very angry indeed.

Thank you!

They (Duo) could TELL us about it, usually changes are announced/described - when the customers are respected, that is. :)

But you have to keep hovering over it to keep it visible and it doesn't seem to work before you have met your daily goal. Why doesn't it stay visible if you click it?

I'm hovering and nothing is happening. Clicking works though. I liked it better when I could see it so I could instantly know if I've met it for the day. It's yet another reason to consider the people making the changes don't use this product.

its another motivator gone. It makes no sense to me that our motivators are slowly being removed.

The devs seem to think that constant change is THE BEST THING EVAR...

Except no... it just annoys the crap out of a lot of people.

Crossing my fingers that someone makes a website based on DuoLingo but takes out all of the recent harebrained decisions on the devs' part.

I've been suggesting that for quite a while. Especially one where course contributors don't need to be approved until the course is ready to be released, so that anyone who can contribute to a course may contribute.

I'm with you too. Come on Duo how about bringing but Immersion na dhow about letting us converse with other 'players'???? (as we used to) signed: pissed off!!!!

I'm with you. Really sick of useless changes which disincentive the members - really Duo, how about asking the members before you 'improve' the system????

The new top bar is buggy for me as well.

Well, fancy meeting you here. My favourite lady! :-)

Thank you for that link. It is now added to my 'phone's Home Page.

Best wishes to you... favourite lady.

Oh stop it, Barrie, you're making me blush!

I do venture out of the relative safety of the Norwegian forum on occasion, but they don't have brunost here, so I never stay for long.

Totally agree. I also don't like the new percentages way of showing how much of a level has been completed - the old number of lessons thing was much better :-(

I signed up and paid To learn French... I don’t want to have to keep learning the program as well. I get my grove going and psyc myself to do my routine... then spend the time I have set aside trying to figure something out.

I agree. I hate how there are so many changes without obvious improvement.

Go to the home page (where skills are visible) and hover over your daily streak icon!

May 16, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/effyleven

Thank you. That is what I used to do. Doesn't work anymore. Home page has changed. Streak icon has no effect. Lingots and Crowns operational. not streak icon. All I get is "Edit daily goal."

Sounds more like your page is glitching, not an update.

Try reloading the page, closing your browser.

No, effyleven just needs to keep moving their pointer around. The chart is there but where you have to click or hover is so narrow you can spend minutes getting the darn thing to show up. The last thing this site needed is more clicking and mouse movements.

I am using a 'phone on the desktop page. Relatively speaking, therefore, my fingertip is the size of one of my feet. Besides, the other icons drop down as expected in this mode. (That they don't show anything of use is not strictly relevent here.)

Maybe calm your farm, it was just moved, hover over the streak icon on the learn screen.

You can now see the graph no matter where you are on the tree. Instead of scrolling to the top of the page.

It is a 150% improvement with no negatives or drawbacks.

May 16, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/effyleven

Except when it is non-functional.. and the graph is gone altogether.

Yes, but the crowns button works on every single page, which gives you the exact same information that is already displayed next to your crown, but gives you this most important of messages;

"Level up to your skills to earn crowns!"

May 16, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/hanna958948

yes, you are right, it is much better. Besides I noticed that they put more translations from english into the language you are following, which is also an improvement. The only thing is: why not sending us a mail about the changes..... and where to find the well-known knobs and scrolls. It would mean less fuss about nothing ;-)

Showing a daily goal status icon would be more important than a day streak.. or show also a daily goal.

effyleven, i agree. rather than ask for learner (end-user) input before changes, they simply announce decisions they have already made. it is annoying and very bad management. it is a basic lack of respect for the learners from my perspective. to be clear, i dearly and sincerely appreciate the hard work the volunteers do, but the paid staff make decisions and poor ones at that with respect to learners. have a lingot!

It might not be so obvious at first, but if it wasn't for the constant changes Duolingo would probably be closed many years ago. I agree that the changes should be announced better, although when it comes to tampering, I'm all for it, sometimes the change is for the worse but most of the time it's for the better and I have nothing against being a lab rat since the application is completely free which really blows my mind as it's so good even for commercial standards.

why would it be closed?

May 17, 2019

https://www.duolingo.com/Seattle_USA

Why would it be closed? What it's been has been what grew it. Getting away from that is making it worse imo. Isnt's it just lovely that the French tree is 3 times as long now. It was better when I got here. No chance I would have stayed if it took 1000 circles to turn blue for a language, to get an Owl, when I got here. 75 was a good number - and that's with all the lessons in each circle.

I have the same question. I can no longer see how many points I've done in a session. I can't see how many points I've done over the past week. The page no longer shows the graph with the points for each day in the past week. I really miss these features.
