Hebrew Duolingo missing gender information


I’m rather new to Memrise so I don’t really know what the best way to do this is. I’ve been taking the Hebrew Duolingo course and it used to be that all words for which gender and number made sense had the gender and number specified in parentheses after the word, like “comes (m, s)”. However, recently some of the words stopped having these specifications (I’ve noticed ‘eats’, ‘this’, and ‘drinks’). These can have significantly different spelling depending on the gender and number, so I have to play a guessing game to figure out which is meant.

I have no idea how to contact the author to fix this. Or can I contact someone else? Is there a “bug tracker” for courses?

I have encountered the same problem. It only just started a few days ago. Maybe this is a tactic to get people to pay up and go pro? The frustration of getting the wrong answer when one has to guess as an encouragement to pay?

I am having the same problem and I am a Pro user. I hope the course creator will correct these missing genders.

OK, it makes sense that this would be happening in the same way for Pro users, thanks for confirming, Gingersmom!

It seems that in Memrise, words have special “attributes” that can be used to indicate gender, number, etc. And indeed I think the Hebrew words that we’re having trouble with have the right attributes because, for example, when you type אוכל for eats instead of אוכלת and a new window opens up guiding you through the spelling, the attributes are shown there. The problem is that these attributes are otherwise not displayed. I think the course creator can change which attributes to display (at least that seems to be the conclusion from this thread), but I have no idea how to contact him/her.

This seems fixed now – the attributes are properly displayed for me.
