What happened to the levels?
I'm no longer able to see my levels anymore? It only shows how much XP I have in each language when you go to the settings.
Why Duolingo? :(
This will also work for now:
You are very good natured! I am not so amenable to change. Why should we have to use a thread now? What was wrong with the way it was? Why did Duolingo ever drop the levels? There should be something, be it a number or a color, that shows one's level. Everyone likes to see his progress! In English there is a saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"!
Unfortunately, it seems that the levels that show up next to our posts do not update. Looks like what you're seeing next to user's names is a "frozen in time" level from when they made the change. Agree that this is an unfortunate change - not making use of powerful "gamification" psychology that keeps users motivated.
This is happening to me, too. I thought that Duolingo had stopped using levels, but when I posted to a discussion thread all my languages and their levels showed up with my posting, so I know that there is a glitch somewhere. I hope it can be easily fixed! It is difficult to know how far one must go to reach the next level if he cannot see the number of points he has already and how many more he must earn to reach the next level. He also cannot know if he is about to be promoted in his league!
Here’s the link lady1inred is referring to, in case it’s not already in your browser history ;)
Amazingly it still works, 2 months later!
