We want to make Russian a featured language. For a full explanation of what this means, take a look here(http://www.memrise.com/faq/becoming-a-featured-language/). That is a general explanation of how we are going to go about it. But there are specific issues that make Russian a bit different.
there is already a lot of good content. I know that Robbie.C and jetfromgladiators among many other have been adding a great deal of excellent content.
I also know that parrishdj, alexpgp and saelie have been doing some great work on a spreadsheet that makes use of the roots of Russian words and the "depends on" feature that Memrise has so that you can always see and learn the root for a word when you are learning it. We have not yet uploaded that spreadsheet - we should certainly do so very soon!
But before we do, could we put together some final "conventions". Take a look at for example the Czech(http://www.memrise.com/faq/czech/) ones - they may be a good model, although they do not use the "roots" feature. Should we add this in?
We now have the tools to make this process as fast and easy as possible, so if you let me know your thoughts on altering the conventions, then we can crack on with getting this fixed up!
