Vocabulary Wishlist Thread

There seem to be many threads requesting vocabulary changes or additions, and I can't seem to find one thread discussing or summarizing them all. Tatou suggested that we request things in a thread (http://www.duolingo.com/comment/862708) but that thread was for a specific problem:

Add a counter that shows decayed words(e.g. 1 Bar words) close to the total number of words learnt.

I like it, but I would prefer some kind of different visual indicator showing us overall word strength of the whole skill tree instead of this numerical one.

The export seems to be in the to-do list of Duolingo: http://blog.duolingo.com/post/62723181502/duolingos-inaugural-hackathon - project#2, no?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dessamator

Indeed, I've added it to a "positive reply list"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/dnovinc

I just remembered an old suggestion of mine for unknown responses category:

Sort skills by strength http://i.imgur.com/a3A6PNS.png

This might help those users that are constantly keeping their skills golden.

One for the category "NEW": "Rating word strength in order to provide feedback that could be compared with our word strength data and then perhaps used to improve upon a system. " http://www.duolingo.com/comment/1158166

btw It's funny 6 hours after I have posted this I see two new buttons [too easy? too difficult?] in Lesson practice :D


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/jrikhal

Do you have a screenshot? I'm not in the test panel. ;)

Too difficult is shown instead when I make mistake.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Dessamator

Done, I've added it. They are like ninjas they spy around and take good feedback immediately.

Maybe it is like a reward for good feedback to include people in the experimental feature they suggest.

Edit: P.S. Maybe the feature they really implemented was this one: http://www.duolingo.com/comment/1158731

Nice!

Thanks for the screenshot.

Whenever the word strength algorithm is adjusted (only for major adjustments) Duolingo should place an announcement (that: "Notice something different...") over our skill trees. Like the ones we get when new lessons are added. (edit those announcements usually include a link of discussion that contains more information)
