Good-bye coach, Hello progress bar?
Do we know when the coach will finish with testing and when/if we can get our progress information back. It may only be a psychological trick, but I find not having anyway of knowing where I am very demotivating.
It's the other way around: the ripped-out progress bar is in A/B testing now, the coach is a feature now. I totally agree with you: the coach does nothing for me (set it to 1 anyway so that I don't accidentally lose my streak). But I would like to know when the next level starts (and usually put in a couple of extra reviews/lessons to level up). Maybe it's just me.
You can see when the next level starts on your profile. It's not a bar like it used to be but you can see the total XP level for every language and how much you have to progress to hit the next level. Hope it's helpful. ;)
Unfortunately, many/most of us cannot see that information on our profile. Those of you how can are in a test group. Lucky folks! :)
Then I'm sorry for creating confusion 'cause I had honestly no idea about that. I mean - since I can see those information on every other profile, I thought it's like a normal feature now. I hope it'll be visible to everyone soon ;)
I must be in the test group, but to be honest, occasionally going onto your profile and seeing 'number of XP you need to level up' in tiny print is nowhere near as good as having a bar on your home screen. I hope the progress bar comes back soon!
Man, I hope it comes back soon. I've stopped using Duolingo very much since they removed it as having nothing to work towards kills my self motivation.
It's not an actual progress bar, but I believe you can always see the XP information on the 'Your Profile' page. I get to that page by rolling over my username in the top right, and selecting the 'Your Profile' option. Then my overall XP, and XP till next level is displayed on the right.
I also would appreciate having the XP progress bar on my language learning page, but for now I just check my profile page out from time to time. Hopefully you have the same option.
Alas, that is not the case for me. I have no access to any progress or XP information. I just have the raw level for each language. I believe from comments here, that you must be in a beta test group.
