Dear Duo, I practice on duo every day. But each morning I find you crying! Don't you trust me by now? Save the crying for when I really disappoint you ;( Hugz, Jop

It's an A/B test, and I'm SO GLAD I don't have the crying owl. I can't think of anything less motivating than a cartoon guilt-trip.

I agree. I think cartwheels and robot dances due to the excitement of having you back to acheive your streak would be far better.

At the moment duo instantly assumes you are not going to achieve your streak.

It is only available if you have set a Daily Goal. Have you enabled the Coach?

Must be a small A/B test. Mine is here: http://imgur.com/Bk904ra (note that that's after reaching goal; before that, it's crying.)

Haha, I think Duo is just saddened to see so many people leave after just a couple of weeks/months that it expects us to disappear soon (I noticed almost all of the people on my friends list stop using Duolingo a while ago), so it's just always sad.

But no worries, Duo will soon find out it can depend on us to keep it smiling every day. :-)

I wish I had him. I don't find the crying demotivating.
