If you get the word right in the first try, you won't probably meet it again, and the more times you get it right, the less you're going to see that word, unless you make a mistake again. So if you always spell it correctly, it shouldn't bother you that much

RE: Love Lingvist? Let Lingvists know!
I prefer Lingvist over other language teaching apps/sites just because of its unique and simple approach.
And Lingvist basically has been the only thing that allowed me to really get into the learning process - it gave me enough fuel and motivation to keep learning French and strive for more.
RE: Best streaks and achievements
Yea I agree with what the poster above has said, even though the post probably deserves its own thread.
With that being said, I still stand by my opinion that Lingvist at least should keep track of one's best streak or at least emphasize it a little bit more - it may mean little outside the site itself, but in the context of competition between, say, two friends who want to achieve the best score it may matter a lot.
Streaks, of course, shouldn't be the main aspect of lingvist.
However, if you are going to include achievements, streaks could be just one of many possible things that can be awarded for - other things might include a certain percentage, a certain number of new words, streak of days etc. There should be a new thread for these kind of ideas, all I wanted to say is: achievements should be a thing, and there should be some more info on the streaks.
After all, there might be someone who would like collect ALL of the medals/achievements and capturing a certain streak to get a certain medal would be just like a fun minigame to them. I don't think it actually disturbs the learning proccess and other people can ignore it if they don't care about achievements
To answer Andy's question, I'm not really a fan of sharing stuff on social media, but that just might be my personal preference.
Best streaks and achievements
I suggest the apps keeps the record of individual best streak of all time, not only of the day.
Also, there could be achievements in relation to streaks. For example, I get an achievement when I hit a streak of 50 correct words, 100, 200 etc.
Also, achievements could be some kind of medals that other people could see, there could be some kind of "top users" table which shows people with most achievements or something, so it would motivate us to actually care about these achievements.
By the way, believe it or not, streaks help me memorize words, because I try really hard to remember a certain word so I don't ruin the streak
RE: Allow to skip words I don't want to review
Bump. I also like this idea, particularly because I encounter some words I simply can't be bothered to learn. I'd much rather have solid basics than try to learn words I won't ever have to use, at least at this stage of learning.
So what do y'all think?
