I want my vocabulary tab back
I see there are users using the Vocabulary tab. It is a very useful tool for managing our process. (I used to make Anki decks by exporting the list). However my Vocabulary tab is gone. Can I do something to enter the test group? Or better,developers can you speed this up so we can all benefit, please!
There isn't any delay they are simply testing it. It seems to take about 2 months to test any single Duolingo feature, the only exception might be when they find that the feature is particularly detrimental or overwhelmingly useful (not sure about this). See Ab-Testing for more details.
Thanks for that information. I think the frustration is coming because the feature has been gone for at least 6 months now. I know they did a full redesign of the website, but they should have left this feature if they weren't ready to incorporate a similar feature into the new website. For those of us who liked and used the vocabulary feature, the absence has had a negative effect on the usefulness of this website and our learning progress.
I had a good system down that worked really well for me in terms of adding new words while retaining the old words. I can tell my language skills have not progressed or been maintained as easily compared to when this feature was available. I came to this website when LiveMocha screwed up their website and I'm starting to think it might be time to start looking for another online resource if they're going to keep dragging this out for months on end.
I just wish there was a live person from their end that actually tried to explain the hold-up and assure us that they actually care about our learning progress and restoring this website to what it used to be.
