@Luxi Is there any option to disable the "shadow" of the character when learning strokes? I liked how Inkstone left it blank and moved your strokes into the right place to suggest better placement. Skritter does something similar but... that price tag.

The shadow disappears after the first 1 or 2 'reviews' of the character. Sometimes tends to disappear too early for my taste, but there are ways to 'unlearn' characters to keep on practising them.

@艾墨本,may I assume from your post that you can access TL in China? Website or app?

Yes. I can access it on an iPhone in China. No VPN.

On another note, has anyone used inkstone recently? I'm in China and have just discovered it is not available in this region.

It's a strange destiny: an inexpensive but vey valuable project like Inkstone cannot have a market! 
No one is interested in developing the original project, no one tryied to buy it and sell it.

But it's a very genial tool.

Skishore aka K. Shaunak https://www.skishore.me/ abandonet it without trying the crowfunding...

I propose complementing this topic with a poll that allows multiple selection. With names of voters shown. And every time a new resource is recommended by at least 3 people, add it to the poll.

 

It would really be interesting to do a poll that allows multiple answer selection for this topic. @roddy &  @imron is this possible?

Hi @艾墨本 , would you be able to add the Laowai's Unofficial Chengyu Guide to the list of resources? It's a free online database that I launched a few months ago whose entries include not only the translation of the story behind Chinese idioms (if applicable), but also usage examples, English-language equivalents, origin details, and more.

 

I created the website because I knew that English-language chengyu resources were lacking. I certainly had a love-hate relationship with chengyu when I was a student, but once I figured out that chengyu came from stories, historical events, or pieces of literature, everything suddenly started making sense, and I wanted to share that with others.

 

You can see my original Chinese Forums post announcing the launch of the website here.

 

Thanks!

This is a really helpful thread. Thank you for it. Is SpeakGoodChinese currently worthy of being on your list? Is there a better alternative these days?
