Duolingo Memes...

So in my French class, we incorporate Duolingo (I'm one of ldunn288's students) into our daily French and I gotta say, I love Duolingo.

To display my love for Duolingo, I've decided to make some Duolingo memes that I'm sure everyone can relate to. This one was my very first one. http://i.imgur.com/vwlSvPz.jpg . You have to relate to this one at least once in your Duolingo lives.

Using http://memegenerator.net/ (I am not paid to advertise this website), make some memes and post the links here! Share the Duolingo struggle/love with fellow Duolingo students and laugh as we relate to each other in such ways.

Happy meme-making! :D

You are able to post images. ![](your image's url here)

October 15, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/tariqnisarahmed

I appreciate the advice, of course. But my meme is about how easy it is to learn on DL, versus how counterintuitive is the process for learning to add images. It's not easy to figure out, and even when some helpful person like you offers advice, it is easy to misunderstand:

What works, follow Lenkvist's advice literally.

Do not remove anything -- leave in the exclamation mark, brackets, and the parentheses. At first I removed the exclamation mark thinking it was only there to allow you to display executable code. Then I tried removing the parentheses because I thought you only added them to set off the instruction to add an image URL. Then I tried variations on those themes.

It would be much, much easier for DL to include a button that users could click to add images. A small add image button that shows up along with save and cancel. It would ask for the URL and then spit out the code in-line for you.

October 15, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Lenkvist

The discussion section used to be quite serious at the beginning. People would have very long discussions about the website and nobody cared about having images because they didn't add anything to their writing. The discussion section might be a bit different in that sense from other forums. You don't really need images to explain language questions so I personally wouldn't miss them. Sorry for the disappointment. There are certainly areas where the forums are lacking but I don't think that will change any time soon.

October 15, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/tariqnisarahmed

No worries. It was after all, just meme-fodder. :) Lingot for all the help, though. (Ever think the plural of lingot should also be lingot? After a short while one is as good as several as good as many.)

October 16, 2014

I agree that it could be made easier--but so could many things in the forums. In the meantime: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=markdown+language

I tried but couldn't get "you spend hours learning a language...but markdown language is too hard?" to not sound mean.

October 16, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/tariqnisarahmed

No worries. I did that search myself a long time back. When I was trying too hard to learn how to add screenshots to troubleshooting threads.

While it was not hard, it was a waste of my time then and now.

I'd love to see this discussion as a showing of controlled and appropriate humor based on language learning. Perhaps we can push ourselves to be clever in a way that won't make any user feel "uncomfortable" as is stated in the Duolingo guidelines. Hoping the moderators will help determine and take into accounts what it takes to make "all" users comfortable (and help remove those things that don't fit that criteria. Let's think of young language learners as we engage in some good clean fun!!!

Anyone have ideas as to how to most easily upload our own images for meme creating so we aren't limited to the limited database at memegenerator? Suggestions appreciated!

October 14, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/Rainbow.K.Chen

Google is a learner's best friend!

There's always another meme generator/editor out there, but memegenerator is one of the easier websites to create memes with. Also, you could just use photoshop to generate some of your own custom memes.

These are just some ideas I know of, but I'm sure there are more creative people out there.

October 14, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/LittleHannah.13

The problem with using photo editors to create your own is that Duo won't let you post a picture directly, and the programs I have don't allow my to copy the image link.

Appreciative of your help here! Also, I notice that in general you moderators do an incredible job of keeping this discussions civil and appropriate. As the classroom teacher of several students on this post, I'm just wondering if I can flag this post as one for you all to keep track of to make sure it follows proper protocol (although perhaps I'm doing a disservice to the work you guys do in assuming this wasn't already the case...just trying to be proactive so I can keep using this program as much as possible in my practice.)

A quick note to those contributing to this discussion. People have reported that some of the images posted caused uneasiness. Remember that there are younger people around (including the original poster) for whom certain content may be troubling.

This is not meant as a sleight towards anyone as I am sure you were all posting with the best intentions. I hope you will continue posting humorous reflections on the Duolingo experience.

October 14, 2014

https://www.duolingo.com/makahiwitk

Well, that explains why I've never had a reply to the many reports I've logged, and as such I've given up reporting problems. Also, this morning I ran the code to check which A/B testing groups I'm in. I'm still trying to figure out which test this one is: report_messages_test: false. I just figured that I was in the group whose report messages got ignored. As I'm in most of the 'false' groups (other than the longer sentences and the more listen challenges groups - yeh me), I'd figured that I was on the outer in the Duo-sphere.
