Quiz Factory Notification
Is it too difficult for Sololearn developers to put a notice or a comment on "Quiz Factory" main section/page saying "We are currently accepting quizzes in Swift and C languages only" or something similar. Every now and then someone is asking that they can't submit quiz questions in languages other than Swift and C. I think a message/notice on the main page of "Quiz Factory" would stop inflow of such questions.

Would be a first, though. I can't remember having seen communication about *any* issue, no matter how long it persisted you or how many people inquired about it on a daily basis.
Mirielle🐶 [Inactive], when an app offers more than ten languages and also offers challenges for most of them, and you can write, run, and store code for most of them, but you can only offer quizzes for two, I think it's very natural for users to wonder why that is. Just shrugging it off would rather make me wonder if the user is making proper use of their brain capabilities.
Mirielle🐶 [Inactive], are you generally going through life like this? Just accepting whatever comes your way, not even wondering about anything? If everybody felt like this, nothing in society would ever change. And actually we do have a change here, because a while ago you *could* offer quizzes for all the languages that have challenges. However, the problem seemed to be that the quizzes weren't reviewed for many months and people kept asking about that in q&a. And instead of revamping the review system or assigning special mods to the task or whatever, they just turned the option off suddenly, and never ever even wrote any reason themselves (like always). The whole thing is just a huge negligence. But of course it's easier to blame the users commenting on this negligence.
The problem is with the people asking such questions on here.. The information inside the select box for quiz is ok for a layperson to know that python and other languages that are not in the option. For a sample i made a selectbox of "yes" or "no"...you should knw that "maybe" or "probably" are not an option
HonFu Neither have I. Some pro-activeness from their side can improve the site and app experience drastically.
Mirielle🐶 [Inactive] They can probably put a reason for not accepting other languages and/or mention not to ask questions about it in the q/a section 😉
~ swim ~ they don't even read the messages. I contacted them twice on their email but I got the same auto-generated answer. There are many other problems that need to be fixed, but so far the only thing that has changed in years is the UI, other than that the content is exactly the same, without any updates (none that I've seen).
~ swim ~ I would say it as good idea but as the official might have some other priorities. For now we moderators can help in do so and remove that repeating answer's. For adding this to their knowledge mail them if they Will not reply dont worry much the will notice for sure
Good point ~ swim ~ , I think the same concept can be implemented for certificates. A notice can be displayed in the lesson just before showing the certificate. Might ease down the frequency of certificate related question, hopefully 🙏
Ipang Yes certificates too, so many question about them too and it's natural to ask if they haveany validity or not. A simple message/note/disclaimer or whatever can certainly reduce queries related to them.
عباس عباس Do not post if you have nothing to contribute ! Can't understand why do some people have a sudden urge to post nonsense !
Whatever the priorities may be, they could generally help themselves if they took PR a bit more seriously. Can't be too much trouble to dish out a little newsletter from time to time, telling people what's taking so long, repairing problems that are bothering people. Giving a hint what they're working on, what we can look forward to. What happens instead is, you open the app one day and the interface looks different, or half the functionality of something is gone, or nothing ever changes although there are things that should, and never a single word about the why of all of it. As it is, it just looks like they don't really care.
Mohit the coder (M.S.D), I don't think that positivity or negativity play a big role here. Because when there is ZERO communication with the people you want to sell your pro mode to, that can hardly be interpreted arbitrarily. The 'communication glass is verifiably empty', so to speak.
Sari SindI Don't post here unnecessarily if you have nothing to contribute, instead read the thread and learn something from it. There are better ways to deal with your frustrations and spare time !
Aymane Boukrouh [Unavailable] That's true other than the UI and some minor improvements nothing really has changed.
~ swim ~ I think you accidentaly tagged someone else 😂
@certificates: That's for once a reoccurring question I don't understand, because I believe that should be a no-brainer. ;-) Everybody went to school, right? Could you pay xp to pass a test? Or read a bunch of comments that just gave you the answer? Probably not, right?
Aymane Boukrouh [Unavailable] Oh, i am sorry, fixed it 😇 Thanks for pointing it out.
Even the certificates, ik that it isn't useful the first time i saw it. It's just something everyone should know by nature, no need of being taught
HonFu 😁 😁 👍
