Mixed (rather negative) feelings about this.
I, like many, was very displeased to hear about the split of community courses from the memrise app, and I don’t feel like you deserve thanks for walking back a move that nearly everyone told you was a terrible idea from the very beginning.
I eventually moved on, I cancelled my subscription as there was no point in paying for a service that gave me no benefits (no offline mode for community courses and difficult words were free on decks), even as I was quite upset about having like 3 or 4 months of my 1 year subscription be rendered worthless.
Decks actually grew on me, no offline mode or app was painful, but the interface and design were much better than the main memrise app, free difficult words was a genuinely useful touch.
And then just as I am coming around to the idea BAM back to square one, to the clunky mobile interface and ugly af color scheme, loss of difficult words after being used to using it for close to a year is extremely miffing, but understandable…until I noticed the subscription price is higher than what it was than the last time I paid for a subscription. Dick move right there Memrise.
Honestly this whole thing just makes the team come across as indecisive, I am certainly not going to shell out for a new subscription just now, for all I know you will introduce some other sweping changes a few months down the line that might make me regret giving you money again.
A very skeptical wait and see describes my mindset as of now.
