Hi, my question is probably in the head of lot of people.
My team and I created a web site to practice languages by writing discussion. The idea is to create a win-win relationship between learners and natives. To create this win-win we thought about gamification. We created a virtual currency. Our main idea was to split the role of the user into two different roles: motivator and learner.
As a learner I can spend credits to request a correction to a post.
As a motivator I can earn credits when correcting posts or when I start discussion in my native language.
Our main problem is that people don’t start discussion in their native language. We don’t know what we did wrong.
Do you have trips and trick to tune our solution or any other suggestion for us?
What is a bit frustrating is that we don’t know if we have made the good chose or if we have to totally rethink the solution.
