Bot attack, temporary course creation disabled on


Just to say we’ve had to temporarily disable new course creation because of a large bot attack.

We’re working on a better fix, but don’t know the timescale. You should still be able to edit existing courses, and use all other features as normal.

Apologies, and thanks for your patience!

Web Squad, Memrise


Maybe this should go in “Memrise announcements”?


I still get an error message when trying to create a new course, directing me to this forum. Any idea when the feature will be back?

As stated elsewhere, please go through Decks as long as you can’t use Memrise to create new courses.


You can create courses on Decks, don’t worry! It’s all the same as on the old memrise site:

If you click on the website, you’ll see a big “Create a course” button at the top of the page. So you don’t need to go to anki after all.


As far as I know, courses created using decks are not working after all, there is an error popping up.

What error message are you seeing? I have just tried the course creation tool and it is working ok for me.

Hi all,

FYI, the “Create a course” button on now redirects to Decks. :slight_smile:

I’m able to create a course name and description, but not add words in Decks.

Oh no!!!

I wonder what has gone wrong now???

I have just tried creating a course and it seems to be working ok. There’s a new captcha requirement (to beat the bots), @1briteday, did you get past that ok? Is this an existing course or a new one? I can’t see one in your profile but maybe you have courses that are set to ‘private’.

If you tried adding words to a level, how far did you get?

Thx For The Info


Thank you for responding, I discovered that by uploading a document that includes english and Italian vocabulary words separated with commas, the Memrise deck I was attempting to create, could accept new words. I must have I somehow overlooked this step in the instructions.
