I see. I thought it was probably just an anomaly on the Dashboard wall count. Thanks for the info.
There’s some inconsistency with the verse counting. Originally Prov 3:5-6, if learnt together would have counted as one ‘verse’ in the stats. And if you learned them separately, (eg if you learned the whole of Proverbs 3), then v5 and v6 would count as 2 new verses in the stats. So a couple of years ago, Luke fixed this anomaly, so that you are recognised as learning 2 actual Bible verses, regardless of whether you learn them separately or as a combined ‘verse’. But an unfortunate side-effect of this is that your 100 verse set is presented as 69 ‘verses’, even though the actual stats will record that you’ve started learning 100 verses when you’ve done them all.
Actually, I noticed it with several group verses. In fact, I deleted them and added them separately as new verses (since I had just started them yesterday) and my total went up. I guess my first clue should have been when I created a group with 100 verses, it only said that I was learning 68 verses when I started it. Up until now, I had just been learning whole chapters rather than individuals. Now that I know, I can work around it. Thanks for the response.
I think the Prov 3:5-6 one looks like an anomaly. The last comment made by Spookyluky seem to imply that it should count as 2 verses.
Would it be possible to make it so that we could delete groups that we have created that no one is learning? Or is there an option for that I am missing? I have some groups floating around that I made when I was new to the website that are no longer relevant.
I also noticed that if you edit a group you created and are learning, that the system will not register that change. For example, I found Isa. 55:10-11 to be too big of a chunk to learn together, so I edited the group to separate them. When it came time to learn them, however, they were still together.
I created a public verse set with Prov. 3:5-6 in it, and I just noticed that the system only counts those two verses as one instead of two on the daily total. Is that by design?
Steady is good. Steady is much more important than fast.
I’m a plodder. Slow and steady! I guess I’ve been here longer than most. But I still love this website and the help it is to me in meditating on and memorising God’s word. I hope I memorise many more. And grow more Christlike in the process 🙂
speaking of points ... you're nearing 50 million, JDJDJD. You've meditated on and memorized a lot of verses during your time here :)
Yes it’s happened to me now so I see what you mean. I don’t mind though as you get the extra bonus points again for finishing a verse. 😁
Grateful for these comments. The most "advanced" verses I currently have are between 70 and 90 percent. So this discussion is helpful to me in knowing how things will develop :)
Yes, I noticed that too. My guess is that progress has actually reached 99.5% and it is being rounded up for the display. But it never happened until the last few days, so something has been changed.
I can't remember where, but somewhere you can choose to keep reviewing verses even after they are 100% learned. So maybe a setting needs changing. Maybe someone else can help with where to find that setting.
Yes, I noticed that as well and have contacted the webmaster about it.
Have others noticed recently that 100% sometimes still requires additional tests?
How can we donate?
Thanks Luke for all your work in putting this site together and all the work in keeping it going. Its been a life line for me. I can't recommend it enough.
by hovering over the stars, you can see the current progress percentage for each verse
There's another recent change which Luke implemented which is very nice. From the Progress Screen https://learnscripture.net/progress/ you can now search for a passage. For example, if you are learning Romans 8:1-17, you can search for only those 17 verses. That can be helpful if you are learning, for example, all of Romans 8, but only want to view your progress for those specific 17 verses.
I find the Progress Screen to be very helpful, because by default it shows first which verses in a passage or chapter are weakest. Thereby you can weed out the weaker ones and also practice them, directly from that screen.
Thank you, Luke, for all of your behind-the-scenes work in making this update.
Thanks Luke, appreciate your work!
Yes, I echo joosep's thank you. I know that it took much time and effort to make such a significant change in this website's formatting. We appreciate all that you are doing and have been doing to make this website a great place to memorize the Bible!
thank you Luke
I have made a change to how combined verses are counted, to make it more accurate. For example, "John 1:1-2" is now counted as 2 verses, not 1. And if you learn "John 1:1" as well as "John 1:2" individually, as well as "John 1:1-2", this is counted as a total of 2 unique verses not 3.
So, you may notice your "Verses started" or "Verses finished" stats change, up or down depending on what verses you have learnt. Any "Student" or "Master" awards earned so far won't be removed, but you may have more work to do to get your next one, or less.
sorry to be a pain but when i try to learn verses it doesn't show the actual verse it just says loading.... i have tried resetting, i have closed and reopened it still does not work. What do i do?
Please disregard my comment below. I don't know why but I tried adding the verses a few times but they didn't appear. After I posted my message for help, I tried again and the verses finally appeared. Maybe I must have done something wrong in my first few attempts. :)
Hi. How do we add more verses to a verse set we have created? I tried adding but it does not appear in my revised verse set.
Thanks for the info, joosep. I appreciate it very much.
I contacted Luke regarding the way the review queue for passages now appears on the Dashboard. (It used to be in alphabetical order). He was kind enough to write back, and explained that the queue is now presented in terms of "urgency"; that is, the most urgent passages appear first in your queue with respect to the principles of memory retention and spaced repetition. I hope I've stated that in a somewhat clear manner :)
Basically, it means that the passages you need to study first in order to best remember them in the long run, are presented first.
Saintman, I haven't experienced that problem.
Has anyone else had trouble accessing this site on Chrome recently?I often get a warning saying there is a security risk.I figured out that cleaning the cache solves the problem.Perhaps SpookyLukey knows a way to fix this so it doesn't happen.
I have a question concerning the Dashboard. The Review Queue used to be listed in alphabetical order. Recently, it has begun appearing in some other kind of order. Does anyone know, is this due to some kind of change which has been made?
thanks, graetzmi23. Must just be my computer.
No problem for me. That came up in scheduled review for me and works and I can go to the "Verse Progress" page and manually test it if that's what you mean.
could someone check whether col 3:14 ESV works for testing? When I enter that reference and click the "hamburger" to the right, it doesn't show the expansion to select. Thanks for your help!
👍🏻 I think I might do it for a few verses I need to fill my mind with.
Thank you, that works!
