Way to Save or Mark Skill Exercise Comment as a Favourite for Future Reference?..

Hello all,

I'm currently doing the Arabic course in beta. While doing skill exercise drills, I was a little confused about an answer and went to see what others had commented about on the question.

In typical Duolingo style, there were other people who shared my confusion and many helpful and detailed explanations from native speakers and advanced learners.

I'm grateful to them for having taken the time to explain, but I don't pretend to understand it all yet.

It would be great to be able to save or mark as favourites comments like these to some private list for future reference. I feel it would be so helpful and facilitate learning even better.

Or does something like this already exist that I'm not aware of? How do others feel about this idea (if it doesn't yet exist on the site or app)? How could we communicate this to the app's developers to make this a reality.

Open to sincerely helpful and positive comments and suggestions on the topic.

Thank in advance for reading

If you want to keep an eye on a particular discussion, you can follow it, you can then find it under the followed tab within discussions (there is popular - new - followed). If you comment on something you follow that discussion automatically.

Thank you for your response, but I'm not sure if this applies to comments made on course skill exercises....?

I just replied to a comment made on a skill exercise on the Arabic course and it doesn't seem like there was an option to save or receive follow-up responses..... I may be wrong, though.

Edited for a typo.

I am not sure what kind of comment you mean, I can find https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/32840789 just fine in my followed section. If you have a lot of more recent ones, it is possible you have to go down a bit to the discussion. They are in order of when the first message was posted on the topic. I followed a discussion 2 days ago and it ended up in my list between two questions I asked three weeks ago

I'm not referring to comments made on discussions on the site forum but comments made on skill exercises of actual language courses.... perhaps my original post was not clear.

Thank you for your follow-up response

the comment I linked was started with my comment on the exercise "George and Rosa" / " جورج وَروزا" It didn't start out on the forum it started with me encountering وَروزا and asking a question about it...

I don't think there is any other way to comment on an exercise, but if I am wrong, someone else will probably bring a solution.

Thank you. I'm out on my phone so I'll take a much better look once I'm home. I appreciate your help.
