  1. It would be great to be able to control the speed of the playback of the recordings on the site.

    I want to post with me speaking in Spanish and have native Spanish speakers give me corrections and feedback.

  2. Increase submissions for less 'popular' languages

    Give an extra amount of points when people post transcriptions or audio in languages that aren't as popular (that is, that don't have very many transcriptions or audio recordings).

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. give members the option to not receive email notifications.

    Give members the option to not receive email notifications, or perhaps have an option to have one email per day, or one per week.

  10. 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.

  11. Punish leechers.

    Highlight active users, helpful users, and handicap users who take help but don't transcribe themselves. Most of my postings haven't been transcribed, but there doesn't seem to be a way to improve the chances of them getting done.

  13. Vote for the quality of recordings

    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…

  15. Block people (prevent a friend from answering your request)

    I know it's harsh and everybody is trying its best, but sometime (because of the microphone, regional accent, unusual pronunciation) the quality of the contribution is bad or does not match our expectations.
    We need to be able to block some people that prevents us to get answers from contributors we consider more valuable to us.

    Throwing some ideas to ease my suggestion:
    Perhaps it should always be given a reason to let the other know what to correct (if it's microphone related for instance). It could be also limited to a fixed number of people (perhaps no more than…

  19. Let users trim long recordings to just desired vocab/phrase

    I wanted to know how to pronounce 頂点 (ちょうてん). It's in the recording at https://rhinospike.com/audio_requests/aquaadragon/11822/, but every time I forget the pronunciation and want to hear it again, I don't want to waste 2 minutes clicking back and forth in that audio track trying to find the particular part it's in. Let me turn 頂点 into its own Japanese Audio Request type thing, and select just the part of the already-available track that contains this vocab. Then in the future when I search for 頂点, let me see both the recording with just that vocab, and also the original…
