A small request: Dashboard - Sentence Collector-Verify connection

On the Dashboard page, please put a link to the sentence-collector verify page if there are any waiting sentences (inc. sentence count).

This is the third kind of participation and it is mainly missed by casual users.

Thanks…

I’m not sure I understand this request. How would that be different from the current “Review sentences” box that is already there apart from showing numbers?

Sorry if I missed it, but I fail to find “review sentences” on the main page or dashboard… Here you set goals (record / listen) and get accomplishments etc (good UX).

I found sentence collector only after I visited some forum posts (the pinned one has everything in it, I know). I’m not sure if everyone reads these forum posts.

What I’m suggesting is to put a third “goal” on the dashboard, which is where everybody looks. At least a “warning” that there are sentences in the collector waiting to be validated. I did put thousands of new sentences but nobody is aware unless I personally inform my friends. No new / quality sentences, no good recording & listening, no good DL - I think.

Something like that:

Ah, sorry, now I get it! Goals, achievements and leaderboard would be nice to integrate for the Sentence Collector as well, I agree. However that would not be straightforward as currently Common Voice and the Sentence Collector are different websites with different databases.

I don’t think complex mechanisms such as leaderboards are necessary. As adding sentences to sentence collector only happens from time to time and mainly in batches, an “alert-like mechanism” like the one shown on the above snapshot would suffice.

Because different sites/databases involved a simple json API could be generated by cron which can further be accessed by the main site to show the link/button if there are non-zero values for the language/locale shown. I’d say, an hours’ work?

Anyway, just a suggestion.
