Two questions about Tinycards

First question: How do I delete decks I've created? All my decks are private right now, so deleting them wouldn't affect anyone else. I have old decks that I don't use anymore and I want to clear out the clutter.

Second question: How do I contact someone who created another deck? I found a couple of spelling mistakes in somebody's deck and I want to let them know so they can fix it.

Thank you!

1) Click on your deck. Select the pencil icon to edit the deck, then the gear. In the top left corner, there should be a trash can symbol. Click on that to "delete the entire deck".

2) AFAIK, there is no way to contact a person in Duolingo or Tinycards without these forums. :(

Thank you. Do you know if there's a forum specifically for Tinycards on the Tinycards site? I was unable to find anything there.

I did see the trash can icon before, but when I hover over it, the text "Artboard" appears. I don't know what that is, but I didn't want to click it in case that did something that I couldn't undo. :) I did click it after getting your message, and it worked fine, thanks.

The spelling errors I want to correct aren't just trivial ones. The author of the course misspelled two names that are the answers of two of the questions. So someone using that deck would be learning the wrong thing. It's the course titled "Countries and Capital Cities of Europe." One side has a country, the other side its capital. In one case, "Tallinn" (capital of Estonia) was spelled "Tallin." In the other, the Republic of Georgia was spelled "Geogia." I think people would probably figure out the second one, but the first one's not obvious.

You can use the report function on the card, it's the ! inside the six sided box. You can try finding the creator in the forums by Google searching [UserName] site:duolingo.com. It's possible that they've posted somewhere and you can reply to their comment.

Hmm... I don't see a six-sided box, with or without a ! inside it on any of the cards. Is it supposed to be when you're being quizzed on something, and there's something for you to type in?

The top section has a blue background, and from left to right, there's the Tinycards logo, then a search box. On the right side there's "Home," "Create," and then my name. Under that is the big white area with the question. At the top of the white area, left corner, there's an X, so you can quit that section, and a yellow progress bar. Under that is the question itself. One side of the card is shown, and there's a box to type in what's on the other side. Underneath that, on the right, is a link saying "I don't know."

And that's it. No 6 sided box with an exclamation point in it.

BTW, I'm using a web browser on my PC to run Tinycards, not an app.

EDIT: Never mind, I found it. Not in the place where I was looking. I had to click "Cards" at the top of the page where you select which group of cards to use. That opened all the cards, and I did see the six-sided box. So I reported the error, but unfortunately it doesn't let me say what the error is, exactly, so the author won't necessarily know what I'm referring to... I guess that's part of the "simplifying" that Duolingo did a while ago.

When you select a deck you can click on Lessons or on Cards. If you click on cards then you'll see something like this picture...

The report icon is on the bottom right corner of each card.


If you're in a deck and doing the lesson the report icon is in the bottom left corner...

When you click on it, this box pops up...

I hope this helps :-)

Yes, it does, thanks! I found it when I looked at the cards, rather than at the question for one single card.

By the way, that is a different lesson about European capitals, made by a different user. So I don't know whether that one has any mistakes. :)
