I recommend these websites.
So this is false.
> These are great recommendations
Those were already on your website.
Okay good that the links are already in the site - you can’t expect me to remember every link from the top of my head
But even if it was, I don't know what would be wrong with that. It's a useful resource, and would benefit from a source of revenue to improve it further. What's going on here? Read this: http://www.cyrilchandelier.com/dont-be-a-free-user
If you monetize too, I don't think its immoral. Money is the driving force of Capitalism so taking money for a useful service is not a sleazy activity.
This is an example of a dark pattern. You create a clickbait title, for what is more than just a collection of websites with affiliate links, slap on a buzzword.
I've never attacked you personally, I just asked you to be more transparent. I can't be the only one thinking I landed on a affiliate landing page.
The main problem with recommending paysites you share profit with is it contradicts the entire purpose of crowdsourcing, which is building consensus based on the wisdom of the crowd, not the sole proprietor of the website seeking to benefit commercially.
Note that I've never mentioned it was wrong to make money, but simply telling you I was misled, like among others, to a clickbait affiliate landing page.
If this was crowdsourced I would've gone about differently, but if you feel attacked then I think that just speaks for itself.
I don't know which are the clickbait affiliate landing pages you're referring to. It'd be helpful if you would mark on the spreadsheet which links you believe to be clickbait affiliate links. That would help me make sense of your feedback, as right now it is unclear to me.
We've had some interest about advertising on our homepage ahead of our Product Hunt launch on Friday and we thought we'd open up the opportunity to everybody. Have a look at the site and let us know if you're interested in any available space.
I find this practice horrible.
Now we are crowdsourced and anybody can submit resources.
We started by gathering resources like podcasts, apps and websites, but are also aiming to map out all the different language schools in each country to make them more discoverable.
Check out the spreadsheet here to add your suggestions. There's a tab just for language schools too: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1jXLjoDbXvl_IKeBwWdwI...
Also, I nominate https://tatoeba.org . It's a great source of example sentences and many apps make use of their data. If someone wants to contribute to the corpus, remember to only translate into your native language. Many people overestimate their second-language skills and write awkward sentences that waste other's time correcting them.
Thanks for the suggestion of tatoeba too, that's excellent!
I can probably add a new category for this and have it as a new filter.
As it is I see a ton of resources for my target language, with no way to choose between them.
Nice work overall, this seems like a really useful idea especially for less popular languages!
Filtering by ability is also needed. This is our first version, so these are in the pipeline.
