This section is concerned with questions related to forums, also known as "Discussions".
How do I search discussions?Edit
Searching discussions  can be as simple as simply writing text or more advanced using operators(AND, OR). One way to filter results is by adding quotes to the search, e.g. "Duolingo wiki", and this can be further filtered by adding an operator, e.g. "Duolingo Wiki" and "lingots". For example:
streak OR lingots-> returns all the discussions that contain either the word "streak" or the word "lingots"
streak AND lingots-> returns all the discussions that contain both words "streak" and "lingots"
"streak lingots"-> returns all the discussions that contain the exact sequence "streak lingots" (probably no discussion would have that, for example)
(lingots AND streak) OR test-> will return all discussions that either have both words "lingots" and "streak" or that have the word "test". So, a discussion with only "test" will be returned for example.
lingots AND (streak OR test)-> will return all discussions that either have the word "lingots" or have one of the two words "streak" and "test". So, a discussion with only "test" will not be returned, one with only "streak" neither, one with only "lingots" neither. But one with "lingots" and "test" (but not "streak") will be returned.
How do I format comments?Edit
What are moderators?Edit
Main article: Moderator Course moderators are volunteers who create courses. Forum moderators are volunteers who are "considered leaders in the community and many are in touch with the team". They also ensure that users obey Duolingo's guidelines.
Are there any guidelines for discussions?Edit
Yes, Duolingo has general site guidelines.
