I can understand them getting rid of mems due to the problem of curating them to make sure they aren’t hateful etc. I also get that they want to change the look and feel of the site, make it more mobile friendly etc.
But I have been a memrise pro member for 5 years and the site is now less usable for its main function (learning something) than it was when I started. This isn’t progress, this is regression.
Why have memrise completely removed the strict typing option on courses? I now have to use a script on a tampermonkey chrome extension to allow me to do strict typing reviews of languages (which isn’t 100% reliable). It’s a complete pain and multiple choice/audio review doesn’t cut it. To learn the spelling and accents on a word you need to strict type it, nothing else can replace that.
I understand the desire to appeal to a more casual audience but why not bury a strict typing option in account settings so that users that want to access it can access it. It would take such a minimal effort on the part of the web developers at memrise and massively help the more in depth users.
