Duo is now bothering me with supportive messages
While doing the standard 10 questions lessons on the website I had two interruptions¹ by duo saying that I was making progress. Of course I am, Duo :) But to me this means two useless screens to validate. And I would very much prefer not having them.
Can you please allow us to disable these useless messages from the setting panels ?
¹I am paying for Duolingo plus, and I am interested in the feature "no interruptions" which is advertised.
Thanks for reading me
edit: typos, precision that this is on the website
edit: list of sentences I got:
"Tu récoltes les fruits de ton travail !", "C'est fou ce que tu apprends ! Tu as répondu correctement à 10 exercices d'affilée, félicitations !", "Excellent!", "Cool, 5 d'affilée", "On apprend toujours de ses erreurs", "Pas mal!", "N'abandonne pas", "Tu es le meilleur", "Ne t'inquiète pas, faire des erreurs t'aide à apprendre !", "Les efforts finissent toujours par payer", "Bravo ! Continue comme ça et apprends plein de nouveaux mots !".
edit: I found other threads related to this problem: https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/21679860 (many upvotes => upvote this thread if you you feel concerned) https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/22604648, (showing that this a very old bug), https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/33072610, https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/33226331, https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/33289027 (duplicates of this thread).
Today I got them too in the browser version. I find these messages are a little bit annoying, please make it possible to turn them off.
Is this in the app? I find them infuriatingly annoying, and whilst Clubs existed someone mentioned how they made him swear. Of all the people who have discussed it, I have never found someone who likes them.
I also find them infuriatingly annoying for three reasons:
- I do not accept human-like comments from inhuman creatures (especially not from a website that is not aimed at passing the Turing test)
- The tone of the comment itself is childish,which might not bother a very young user (maybe), but bothers me
- Stops me (I have to press Enter) and distracts me
If this does not get fixed I will have to come up with a hack like JS modification via a browser extension or filtering of the networks packets :'(
Oh no, I have realised my mistake when I just saw one on the website. The end is nigh.
