Opting out of the leagues
I just made my profile private in the privacy settings, apparently the only way to stop seeing (or being in) the weekly competitive leagues. Not that I ever cared about being near the top of the leagues instead of learning the target language, but it did give me a general idea of how much practice I should be having. Even so, staying in the Ruby league for many months as a secondary consequence had become rather monotonous. Now that the leagues tab has disappeared in my app, it should be interesting to see how my learning pattern goes. Will it change, sustain, improve or deteriorate? I don't know. All I know is that I'll continue to find new ways to motivate myself to learn.
