  1. Allow post videos from other video sites besides Youtube

    Youtube gives many problems due to copyrights: videos are constantly deleted or not accepted. It'd be nice if, say, Vimeo, Dalymotion and other popular (or not) video sites were added as source options when requesting a transcription.

  2. Improve friend search

    Improve friend search. In the search results include when last active or logged in. There's no point in requesting friendship from someone who hasn't used the site for years.

  8. 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).

  9. Search by language

    I'd like an easier way to click on recordings made in the language I teach (Spanish) to see what other teachers have had recorded so that I can use some of their recordings.

  12. explain what a credit is used for somewhere extremely obvious.

    I joined RhinoSpike to help others and I have no idea what these credits I am accumulating are used for. I clicked "credits" and it talks about purchasing them. Why should I purchase something I don't know how to use?! I'm sure I'll figure it out, but seriously, try using your site and assume that instead of "credits" you earned "fargleblargs". Then try to figure out why and what "fargleblargs" are used for. There is no prominent FAQ nor explanation of what they are for. Checking the KB, I see just two unrelated pieces of information. The UX is a…

  14. Make transcriptions easier to navigate to

    It's hard to find where my Script Requests are.

    "Your Audio Requests" is in the top bar, from the rhinospike.com page. To get to my Script Requests, though, I have to click on the silhouette in the corner, then "View Profile" or "Account" (I can never remember which it is -- they both seem synonymous to me), and then click the "Script Requests" box in the middle of the page, right below the field that says how many comments I've written (zero).

    It also shows me, with equal priority, the list of things I've transcribed for others, including a bright…

  15. Simplify

    Simplify the page! I'm seeing literally hundreds of words on the page right now, and about 20 of them are relevant to me. All the rest is what Tufte would call "chartjunk" (were this a chart).

  18. Add a 'Story Request' feature

    Add a new request type where I provide a list of words I am learning, and a native speaker will take those words and create a short original story/article using those words and record it.
