Hey there! Back here to talk to you about another improvement to the platform.
Since the beginning of times, the different Memrise apps had the points system implemented in each different app separately (Android, iOS, Web). That is normal when you build any new app, you start building things and you make them work as close as possible to the specification given.
When 3 different teams implement features, there are always very slight differences of interpretations, that end up also being very small differences in implementation. Most of the times these differences are not even appreciable, but they exist.
We are consolidating all the points logic together in order to remove those small differences, make the system completely consistent regardless of the platform and to allow us to iterate faster, just changing the code once, instead of three times.
In the next few weeks you might see, in different platforms, how points are treated slightly different as how they are now. Nothing to be scared of! We are comparing the three platforms and making it fair, cohesive and consistent
This should not raise any problem, but should you find something really bad (aside from the really small differences that you might notice on how certain points are being treated) please do let us know.
