Hi NewTestamentMemorizer - I'm the webmaster here on LearnScripture. I'm really glad you felt you could share your problems with the community on this website.
If you are feeling depressed, especially if you have thoughts of suicide, it's really important that you also share these things with your real life community, and particularly your parents and family, or another trusted adult, or people qualified to help with depression, like doctors. Depression is called a mental illness for good reason - it's not just a spiritual matter. And God has put other people around us, and given us doctors etc., because He wants to help us through them.
@FinalAsgard - thanks for the suggestion, I'll see what I can do.
@JDJDJD - never mind, I've found a way that should fix it for Safari, let me know if there is still a problem.
@JDJDJD - regarding your recent problem with the stars on the progress page - can you tell me exactly which version of Safari you are on?Thanks!
It looks like a problem only with Safari, I know why it happens. It was a change I made that simplified things and required fewer graphics, while also making the bar more accurate, but it doesn't work on most versions of Safari, so I'll need to re-think it.
@graetzmi23 - sorry for a slow reply.
I haven't made any significant changes to that. The exact requirements are pretty difficult to describe fully. The concept is simple in essence - there is 'curve' that you are moving along towards the '100%' mark. If you score 100% in tests every time, and are just learning a single verse, then you will gain about 5% progress every time you are tested, and be tested in every increasing intervals.
The first complication is what happens when you score less than 100%. In that situation, early on in the process you can still make good progress with mediocre scores (e.g. 80%), but later on you are expected to have learnt the verse much better to continue to make progress.
The second complication is passage learning which cause verses to be learnt together, which means that verses can be tested before their own individual schedule (because of other, 'weaker' verses that need testing sooner). When a verse is tested before its own schedule, you won't get 5% progress even if you score 100%.
These complexities could make it look like it has got easier (or harder)
@JoeDaStriker - the weekly champion is really only attainable by a very small group of people, so it isn't motivating for the vast majority of users. So it was removed, to give room for other things that are more motivating.
👍🎉well done Luke
@dadster - it is a bit more intolerant yes. The old logic was not always helpful - for example, you were allowed 1 spelling mistake on 2 letter words, which meant you could easily type the wrong two letter word - "of" instead of "on", for example - and be marked "correct".
So I have tightened it for that case, and a bit for longer words, but I didn't think I had tightened it much. Perhaps I have tightened it across the threshhold where it makes a difference. If you continue to find it a problem, let me know, and I can change it to be closer to how it was before. I'm also having to accommodate other languages (we know have a Turkish Bible), and due to the way the language works tighter is better for that case. I may need to split it out to have different levels for different languages.
Glad you like it CharlotteN!
