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!
Kcr21 Go to the progress stats and select the verse along at the right hand end. Click on practice verse. Then in the top right hand corner of the verse there are 3 little horizontal lines. By clicking on this you get the option to reset progress. I haven’t tried it but it looks like that should work.
Good question, if it is possible, it´s not easy to find. The logical place would be under progress stats when you click on verse progress. I´m not sure whether the "stop learning" option also resets your progress or whether it just removes the verse from your review list.
Hey guys, can you make it so that you can reset your progress on certain verses again? There are some verses I learned a couple of years ago that I need to re-learn, and I remember I used to be able to reset my progress to zero if I wanted to. Is there a way we can put that option back up again? Thanks
I think that is an excellent suggestion EileenS :)
I have a suggestion for typing one letter at a time typing: would it be possible to also force the user to type the numbers for the full chapter and verse - so if it was Matthew 12:30, the person could still type m for Matthew BUT they would have to type 12 for the chapter, and 30 for the verse, instead of being able to type just 1 for the chapter and 3 for the verse. It would also help as a memory aid.
Is two percent signs also British English, because in the ace badge description it says *100%%.* should that be there?
I think it may depend on whether you’re using American English or British English @KC49425. I just copied this explanation from the website Grammar.com. “Practice is used as both a noun and a verb; in both cases, it can have any of several different meanings. The word is always spelling practice in American English. In British English, the noun form is also spelled practice. The word is spelled practise when used as a verb in British English.”
