Stories are like anything else supported by volunteers ?
Stories are like anything else supported by volunteers ? I understand Duolingo publishes the stories, no contribution.
Thanks for the new Portuguese stories
Stories are created and supported by Duo staff and/or contractors. Volunteers have no more access to the Stories infrastructure than the average user.
I think stories are made by staff, or possibly commissioned from outside professional agents. I don't think volunteers play any part in them; I've never seen any reference made on the forum to anyone volunteering for them.
I believe the Stories are made by staff given that it is only available in the main courses of Spanish, French, German, and Portuguese which are developed by staff themselves (including perks such as Words tab, Podcasts, Bonus Skills). If volunteers were the ones creating the Stories, then Stories would be available for most languages on Duolingo.
