  1. Award credits by word count rather than by recording.

    Hi! New user, love the idea--just a quick suggestion: As you know, people come here to place requests, and placing their requests requires credits. Since any recording is worth one credit--no lmatter how long or short--users will naturally do only low-word-count recordings. If credit were based on word count, say 50 words equals a credit, then this would motivate users to tackle the longer recordings. As things stand, I suspect that my four-hundred-word audio request may languish in the queue forever. Thanks!

  3. Add a 'rate my pronunciation' feature

    Add a new request type where I can record myself speaking in my target language, and a native speaker will listen to it and give me comments/help on my pronunciation.

  4. 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…

  5. Allow users to request translations

    Have a way for users to request a translation of a text. Something like "I have this text in English I would like it translated to Japanese"

  6. 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).

  7. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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?

  13. Allow native speakers to hide certain requests from their queue

    I am from Brazil and speak Portuguese. The problem I've come is that sometimes I already made a bunch of recordings and I have to skip a lot of them which asks specifically for European Portuguese. I don't record for these requests just so they can stay in the top of the queue for someone who is able to speak this variety of the language. But since there's no option to hide them, it ends cluttering my own queue of requests to record and I have to keep paying attention to which requests I ignored because they were from a…

  16. 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.
