Today for some reason, doing card set reviews for the Swedish Duolingo course has stopped giving XP in Duolingo.
Has anyone else noticed this?
That's terrible! I guess I won't get anymore points in the future because I spend almost all my Swedish-learning time on Tinycards now. I am learning so much more by increasing my vocabulary than struggling through idiomatic sentences. This is devastating. Why is Duo upper management so focused on making the site more BAD? I notice it's actually uglier today, too. More white space? Any more white space and the page would be blank.
I guess I'll switch my goal to the lowest possible and continue to spend time on Tinycards. Duo is taking away ALL the carrots, so I will self-motivate. Luckily I'm good at that!
Like Frank Sinatra, "I do it my way!"
Since I get no points for using Tinycards, and since I am way more interested in learning vocabulary, I changed my daily goal on Duo to 10Xp. So I keep pushing ahead on Tinycards for the sheer joy of learning, then do one easy lesson on Duo to maintain my streak and keep my hand in.
