Rocket 2019 Wishlist

As I use Rocket, which I think is fantastic, I often think of little things that IMO would make it better. I've mentioned some here and there in other threads, but I'm creating a "Wishlist" thread to keep them centralized. (It's also possible that there are already ways to do some of these...

Would it be possible to have a poll option in the forum topics?

I feel that it would be an interesting addition to the Rocket Forums.  Even if some people don't respond directly via text, it can still be a way to better understand one another.  And for the Rocket Staff, having a poll could directly benefit you as you would have a better idea of what your...

Custom Flash card issue, I don't get the option to study the hard cards.

When I go to study a custom flash card set what I have already rated, I find that I do not get the option to study just the hard cards. It behaves as though all the cards were rated as easy. On the other hand if I go though a set and rate some cards hard and then I go though the cards again...

Today I am only getting one point per flashcard instead of two.

Something seems to have gone wrong with the flashcard scoring. The built in flashcards and the custom ones are only scoring one point instead of two. After checking further it seems the same thing applies to playback and recording phrases. This is in German, but maybe elsewhere too. Edit: I...

A suggestion for future revisions in Rocket languages

Problem with punctuation on Rocket Reinforcement tests
