What happened to "Daily goal"?! (why did it morphed into lousy "words per day" instead of a noble "points per day"?)

Hello everybody!

Did I miss another “improvement” (its a sarcasm) from Memrise, or is it something that yet can be fixed manually?

Just yesterday I was working hard on my “1500 points per day” goal. However, today I was done with my learning session in like… 30 sec? Too early to feel proud, its rather time to have this “Gosh, they improved smth again” nasty feeling.

So, the question is… is there a way to bring back POINTS PER DAY? Or is it another feature that was brutally murdered by Memrise’s creative team?

Btw, to check all possibilities before writing here I tried “turn off” button at “Edit daily goal”. There was no (!) explanation and I assumed its turning off words/day feature to bring back points/day feature.


It just annihilated my Streak count.

We have something much bigger coming, also unannounced.

It’s the new version of Memrise, it’s not unannounced, you’ve been moaning about it for months!
But existing users won’t be enrolled into it until next year so don’t worry
Though I don’t know what Max is referring to here, we haven’t changed any wording around the daily goal on the classic experience since last autumn or so.

I’m not moaning, I’ve been very quiet recently.

But I expect nothing good from your new project. As soon as you’ll push everyone into this BS, next year or whenever, there won’t be no choice.

By the way, you have to change something here.

  • :sunglasses: Totally FREE, forever!

Where are you seeing ‘totally free, forever’?
Both the current and new versions of Memrise offer an extensive freemium experience, in fact more on the new version. There are things to pay for but no one is forced into it.

Thank you. To clear something up, Memworld is not the new version of Memrise, it is an entirely separate R&D space where we can play with ideas that may or may not ever get in to the main Memrise experience depending on how they go.
And Memworld will stay free.

“you’ve been moaning about it for months!”

The fact that you’re able to keep your job while being so consistently snide and dismissive just proves what a massive tech talent gap there is. You clearly aren’t the least bit concerned about damaging your employer’s reputation, so they must need you pretty desperately. Bully for you, I suppose.


It is difficult to convey tone in written communication, I was merely having a little joke with Hombre who I’m sure would be the first to admit that over a number of years he has never been shy about providing us with his open and honest feedback on changes, and I deeply appreciate his passion and him taking the time to do so.
As to why Memrise employ me, I believe it’s because of my incredible good looks.

Touché. Maybe I’m missing a lot of context, but my mouth has dropped a couple of times. Believe me, my tone coming across wrong has been basically my entire existence since the internet. That said, if anyone from Memrise appreciates the “passion” of the people who comment in these forums, I am definitely not the only one that’s lost on. Not exactly a jamboree around here. :woman_shrugging:

Here some scrinshots.

“Points” (1st pic) changed into “Words” (2nd pic) yesterday out of the blue. I searched Settings page, but didnt find any “undo” button. Also, pressing “turn off” just reset my Streak count :frowning:

This is something new and certainly unannounced. :slight_smile: You were going to integrate Memrise with Memworld, al least that’s what I draw from all those conversations with you and Ben.

I’m sorry I really can’t explain this, that design has been present since last autumn, we are not making changes to that version of Memrise as all effort is going on the new version. But from what i remember the logic was the same it was just a design update.

Hello! I rather recently purchased a lifetime membership to Memrise because I want to get back into language learning and remembered how useful Mems had been to me in the past — and after using the app again a few times came to learn of the recent changes and removal of mems! I am strongly considering requesting a refund, but thought I should look more into their and the MemWorld future before I do as a last hurrah (I do not like the system as I did before, and miss the benefit the mems provided). I’ve read the 2021 threads.

1- Are Mems still possibly coming back/being worked into the future “library” as discussed, or are they definitively done with now (as looks may be the case as of Sept. ‘22)?

2- You say MemWorld “will stay free.” Will there be any benefits of a paid Memrise membership there? I see that group sessions are $5, or a suggested donation. Podcasts aren’t up yet….but just wondering how this pay-to-play structure integrates (or doesn’t) with an existing subscription?

To be clear, MemWorld is not a part of the product, it is a research and development space we sometimes use for one or two languages, and things on there may or may not come to the main product. Right now the main thing being tested is live classes. So a membership doesn’t affect anything on MemWorld.
Mems are one of many features on our roadmap, we have to choose how to spend our development time for most gain, and building our new Communicate feature powered by GPT-3 was the most impactful use of that time.
I’ve made you eligible for the new version of Memrise, which you can access via the Early Access toggle in the profile dropdown so you can see the future direction of Memrise including the Communicate feature.

@James_g_memrise, I’d also like to switch to Early Access. Is it possible?

done, please use method described above to access
We are not yet ready to open Early Access to all users on classic as we are resolving bugs, so we don’t guarantee a flawless experience
