Hello,

when I uncheck the checkbox next to the languages to indicate that I am not actively learning them, I would expect the chat tab to not display the unchecked languages in the "Is Learning" column. I guess this is a bug/wrong behaviour. See pictures below


Edit: I just realized that you can toggle them in the column itself, but I feel like both these settings should be the same attribute in the database, as they seem to have the same function





studying persian and soon arabic at university

This isn't a bug or wrong behavior imo. At one time it was connected to chat, but now the check box is there only to display a language as "learning" under your avatar (forum and write & correct). Chat languages are toggled on/off in chat only. I have written a ticket to clarify the purpose of the checkbox, but there are more disadvantages than advantages to try to connect it to chat.

Ok, we made the purpose of the checkbox clearer by stating "Skill Levels (checked box makes language display as “learning” under avatar)". Closing ticket.
