Why most of them (including me) are losing their interest in Sololearn?
Well, a number of reasons: 1) As many have mentioned, the very pathetic Code Playground. I'm not trying to blame SoloLearn, because I'm pretty sure that they did their best. But still, you cannot run many codes in the limitations of said Playground. I'm not sure if it is possible to improve it, but as it's name implies, it's a Playground; you're going to outgrow it someday. 2) I used to think challenges were a good way to improve your coding skills. That is, until you see questions repeating themselves. They could change the questions by randomizing variable names, values, and the like, to prevent people from memorizing the answers. 3) The lessons are very basic. If you want the real stuff, you have to go somewhere else. Thankfully, with the Lesson Factory, this has been somewhat improved, but until there are many advanced courses, the point remains that this is not a very good platform for advanced learning. 4) The Q&A section is flooded with people asking the same questions over and over again ("Does the SoloLearn certificate have any worth?", anyone?). I'm sure the mods and SoloLearn are doing all they can, but there should be a feature to show existing related questions before posting their questions (somewhat like the Lesson Factory). 5) I don't know if I'm the only one, but there is just no motivation after Platinum. Maybe because the XP requirement is too high for you to advance, but there is really no point after Platinum. What's there left to do? Code? Answer questions? Do challenges? See above. Well, this unintentionally became a criticism of SoloLearn in general. I'd like to say that I do not mean to say that SoloLearn is bad or that I hate SoloLearn or somewhere along that vein, but I'm suggesting areas of improvement. Maybe one day, when SoloLearn ramps things up, I may banish the thought of leaving SoloLearn. 😉 (Hope I didn't inadvertently bore you to death.)
@blackcat1111 I agree with all your points 👍
@Dude or it's because I don't get in-depth knowledge about the topics 🤔 you are right there should be official challenges.
Well,youre right,im losing interest in sololearn,why? The web playground doesn't meet demands The app gets boring when soo many challenges are pending I see the same questions everyday in challenges,nothing new But it's still a great app
I agree with you both @Brains nd @Dynamic programmer
We all have varying exposures to other apps too. For example, I am now getting very obsessed with Discord bots, so I losing intetest here. In addition, with new releases in my favourite game, Geometry dash, what was once time dedicated for sololearn is now distributed. But don't worry, I will never leave you alll
maybe because the coding playground is shit(especially if you want to get inputs from the user) ..
I agree with @Brains also, the playground is good for simple tasks but doesn't meet needs for when you want to do much more advanced programming. I've also encountered some runtime errors with code playground that I haven't on other IDE's. Nevertheless it is good to finally find an internet based compiler that can be used easily on mobile.
The thing is you need to understand the importance of this app.. And you should always be thirsty for knowledge 😝
You guys are pro... Btw I'm still new here.
unlikely they don't find discussions and friends group like this.
Maybe it's time to move on to something more advanced. Try taking a udemy course or a coursera course on a more advanced topic.
@codingangelAK It's just the questions, at least so far, in each lesson don't challenge you to memorize and regurgitate information and data, they just check to see if your not totally lost. which doesn't help with the challenges.
@Shivam Raj Well, I have submitted many, many quizzes but they are all declined. And I have submitted lessons but they are pending, so... 😓
why they are pending
dont worry balckcat you will receive your factory badges
Don’t worry sweetheart, we are already losing a lot of things in more aspect on our lives. So, it’s usual. 😂
does someone wanna tutor me? lol
@Jay that's a good point, the community is very helpful on SoloLearn.
The only reason I use this app is that I want to help beginners by answering their questions and telling them they should not use the SL courses (same reasons as blackcat). I was always feeling stupid when I posted in traditional online forums and I don't want others to experience the same.
