Another call to fix the word strength algorithm

I realize this has been the topic of several discussions, however I feel that adding another voice can hopefully serve to reiterate how much this would help.

A properly working "weakest words" practice (and by extension, "practice all skills") would help me, and I'm sure many others, immensely, especially as people approach hundreds of learned words and beyond.

I seem to suffer the same issues that others do- words I see all the time show as extremely weak in my vocabulary section, and in practicing them, I often see the same things over and over.

I'm sure that the Duolingo team realizes this is an issue, but I'm posting to hopefully help this issue get expedited. Most aspects of this site are excellent, but without an effective review system, I feel like I'm not taking full advantage of my newly acquired words and concepts.
