  1. Allow access to 'culture' section only to users with 1000 mochapoints or more (to prevent scam!)

    Dear fellow users,

    if you regularly use the 'culture section', you are probably aware of so-called 'scam messages'. Under almost every popular photo, a "nancy.desmond" writes how much she loves you or some "jfgfgdfgfgjj" wants to sell you goods against a "2012scorchingsummer comes".

    These people are not only annoying and one of Livemochas biggest problems. They are nothing less than organized criminals, trying to extract large amounts of money from easygoing citizens around the world. Most of them operate from Nigeria and other african countries, some sit in China. Even if only one out of a million who see their…

    • I want livemocha to keep the old version and make it available for all members

      i prefer the old version of Livemocha, it's more comfortable for me in language learning and communication with native speakers.

        You should add a filter to stop all of the spam love letters.

        • Improve suggested language partners

          I'm a native Spanish speaker seeking to learn Filipino and Japanese. My personal approach: to teach my native language to a native speaker of a language I'm learning; an exchange. Now take this example from the "suggested language partners" feature:

          Speaks:
          English | Native
          Filipino | Fluent
          Spanish | Fluent

          Learning:
          Tagalog | Advanced
          Mandarin Chinese | Intermediate
          Korean | Beginner
          Japanese | Beginner
          Italian | Beginner
          French | Beginner

          Useless, completely useless and there are tons of suggestions as useless as this one. This person is not learning my native language and does not natively speak any of the…

            • Status updates of users' activities

              First of all, this would be nothing like Facebook statuses.
              I was thinking of a falling menu right next to the picture on a person's profile. And there would be a limited choice of activities regarding language study or travel that a user could choose from to put as it's Livemocha status. This way, people wouldn't post unnecessary stuff like pointless statuses, quotes, or song lyrics like on Facebook, which would annoy other users and degrade Livemocha's originality.
              In that falling menu, some of the options could be :
              - Doing reviews at the moment .
              - Practicing writing in…

              • Add a special Translations section

                In this section, Livemocha users who need help translating more complex words and phrases, slang words, longer texts, even song lyrics (anything they want!) would be able to get them translated. But only by native or fluent language speakers. This would be another way for users to earn Mocha points and be useful to the community.

                • I suggest that when we give 1 star evaluation the student shouldnt be able to give a grade

                  It already happen to me a couple of times that I give 1 star to a submission because; or there is no sound or the person just copies the text above. And then my teacher points just go down.
                  I suggest that when we give 1 star to a submission the student shouldn't be able to grade our review. It's unfair that my points go down because someone didn't do their exercise properly.
                  Thanks

                  • Should we report users that are not fluent who claim to be?

                    Should we report to livemocha's support if we come across a user who is claiming to be fluent enough in English to be a teacher, but who is obviously a learner? I came across a younger user not too long ago who is an immigrant to America. His grammar is extremely poor but he is correcting other people's homework. Or attempting to, at least. I know this will cause confusion to others. What should we do if we come across this?

                      Self-explanatory from the title. Some very active friends would benefit from tokens that reviewer friends accumulate. Why not allow them to be shared, at least with those friends who are using tokens only ?

                          I would love to be able to send an invite to a friend, who is not already on LiveMocha or Facebook, by email. Many social websites have this feature, but I don't see this feature here.

                          This way, we can invite our friends with an official welcome from LiveMocha, by email. I have a few friends that I think would love LiveMocha, but do not have a Facebook account. I told them about it, but they keep forgetting to check it out. It would be easier if I was able to send an invite to their email to help them…

                          • get rid of the spammers.

                            I really think you should get rid of the spammers who are asking for people to contact them with outside emails and then asking for money to be sent overseas through western union, etc. I don't know how to do it, but they are ruining my experience on this site, and I am not even naive enough to give them any money or sell my house or something. I'm sure some people don't know about how they work and will get trapped by them unfortunately.

                            • restrict the people with exclusively romantic goals

                              Some people are simply spamming with invitations for who knows what. They never review a peer submission and they never complete a language exercise. Can we restrict messages to persons who are actually participating as language learners. I find nothing more romantic than developing a relationship throuigh shared interest; however intruding on people with no regard for language learning goals or personal privacy is annoying and insulting.

                                Hello everyone! I have been here since 2009 and during this time I received few hundreds unwanted messages with spam. After very few of them I understood that the messages are not pointed at me personally but are spammed in a multiplexing manner, I suppose, to everyone. I just reported abuse of an user, that sent me a message that I have read 1-2 years ago. They looked for a person to manage 4 million dollars and for two years they obviously did not find anyone, that is why they wrote to me again. After I deleted the message, they…

                                      I just hope that you can add another options
                                      to this site, to the users' privacy options, for
                                      example this option will not allowed to others to
                                      see my profile details and my languages' submissions,
                                      only friends who already in my list can see that,
                                      and people who i ask to invite them can see just
                                      which languages i am learning and speaking and
                                      when i accept them they can see other details.

                                        Hello,
                                        I have been working really hard to bring translations to the French Livemocha and I find that sometimes multiple people come up with good ideas and if your translation gets voted down (especially by competitive members who add their own translations to everything) my teacher score goes down even though everyone I helped has deemed my contribution "extremely useful" and only 1 of all my contributions was "useful". Now my teacher score is below 75% and it really makes me not want to participate in this aspect of the community because it gives the impression that my contributions aren't…

                                        • make it possible for members to delete comments posted on their pictures.

                                          Often spammers post comments under a picture asking you to "contact me at my personal email for love." These posts are unrelated to the picture and are making Livemocha more trashy and inappropriate.

                                          In addition, some people might post comments that the owner of the picture does not want to be associated with, be they offensive or just irrelevant.
