I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Way to find active users

    There should be a way to filter users by date of their posts, that is, to know those who are active and the ones who are not.

      • Make a cell phone version/improve page functionality

        I found the website difficult to use on my phone. The review box for submitted text for instance would not scroll properly and it was hard to read the tiny text on my iPhone 6S screen.

        Also I had to click on links multiple times to get them to go through. There isn’t an obvious way to click back to see more requests once you’ve finished with one. Now I see the help others button at the top, the site is just not entirely user friendly in general. Great idea though.

        • Allow other users to flag requests that are complete so that they are removed from the queue

          Particularly for transcripts, there are requests that are complete but sometimes the person that completed the transcript did not mark it as complete or did not write in the correct end time, so they still show up as incomplete on the queue. It would be great if there was a way for other users to flag the request so that the request can be marked as complete and removed from the queue.

          • transcribe your own audios/videos

            transcribe your own audios/videos

            This means that natives have less work to do.... and so more likely to help you..., so you can cut down the time needed for the native, so the native only needs to go through and check/correct your work, rather than type everything from scratch!

                  • Allow commenting from the request queue

                    I listened to a recording in the queue tagged English, but it was Turkish. There was no way to say so. I clicked "transcribe" and suggested in the transcription box that they should resubmit with the correct setting. After submitting that, only THEN did the comments boxes appear.

                      • Add another option to the "report this as abusive or offensive" like "report this as a problem/error". For example

                        Add another option to the "report this as abusive or offensive" like "report this as a problem/error". For example today there was a video post: English / inglés nativo, inglés verdadero by martamoya1996 asking for English transcription. But the video has English subtitles, so asking someone else to transcribe it in English isn't needed. Not offensive or abusive but not really an appropriate request either but there is no way to report that easily.

                          • are allowed to download your audio requests

                            I guess quite a few of us would like to download our own requests without paying additional credits for that. The point of the recording is for practice, and I guess I'm not alone in wanting to have the recording available on my mp3-player. Why pay more for a recording which was done for us?

                                    I think it would be great to establish groups to help people find language partners (for Skype etc.) and maybe even small lessons created by users such as pronunciation guides/ do's don't etc. which can have audio created by the poster.

                                      It produces m4a

                                      The default browser on W10 is Edge and Silverlight does not work on it.

                                      As Win 10 is presumably the most common OS on new computers it would be good not to have to hunt around for software.

                                        Many recordings I've search for the language I'm studying end up being bad quality of either tape or speaking (and I don't mean speaking fast, I was listening to some recordings in my native language too, and sometimes I could barely catch what they were saying!), which is very frustrating trying to find one I'd be satisfied with. If people would be able to vote on the quality/clarity of other's recordings, maybe there would be less people just mumbling through the text while earning credits for a bad recording. Or a catch of earning an extra credit, if your recording…
