Hey there! As you know a few weeks ago we communicated and executed on the decision to leave Decks behind.
Many of you gave us feedback, some of you we even talked personally to. The feedback is divided into different areas and we are here to talk about one of them - the forum.
As you know and can see, we have done quite a lot of work lately to make this space a bit more responsive, healthier and better. We have read all your feedback on this and we agree on many things and so we are going to do a few things about it. There are a few things we can’t do for different reasons (resources, effort, effort/benefit, etc)
Here are the things we are doing:
- We are restructuring the forum to reflect that Decks is no more, but we are also using this opportunity to clean up and organise it in a way that makes sense (at least it does to us, please do let us know).
- We are reviewing all user groups so that they will reflect staff correctly and the groups we trust.
- We are working to set up an email to be sent to course creators. The aim is to direct them to the forum to meet new people and share their courses. (We won’t link forum and course creation at this time, but we hope you find this a good compromise to make the community forum more visible to our users).
The categories will be as follows:
- General Discussion
- Official Memrise Courses
- User Generated Content
- This will also include Abandoned courses, from Decks Bugs
- Bug Control
We will merge the Decks bugs into Web bugs and all the relevant topics on the Decks categories into their relevant new places.
You will start seeing these changes in the following hours/days
