Celebrating 3 years of our community, Baguette Brigaders!

Celebrating 3 Years of Community: New Features and Updates! πŸŽ‰

Press Release and General Announcement by Draggie

It is indeed that time of the year again, be it for good or for bad...

It's the 3rd Anniversary of the creation of our community. The website and server have grown and changed so much, (mostly) for the better, and this success would not have been possible without our amazing community members like Hizi, Abdoe, Adventista, π”’π”Ÿπ”°π” π”²π”―𝔒 and so many more, I can't thank you enough!

This page is being updated throughout the birthday week. Last change: 27/09/2023

Website Changes and Announcements πŸ“š

We believe in real experiences shaping and having an impact on our decisions and choices. Following extensive feedback and ideas and just a few (long) minutes of development, we're excited to announce a range of changes, updates and new features in the pipeline and available right now below.

Enhanced Revision Material

We've heard your feedback! The public revision material that is available on the site will now be split into topic-specific revision materials. This means less clutter, less time wasted to find relevant information and more opportunities for people to discover our content

Course Summaries are here to stay!

The course summaries or huge cheat sheets containing all of Paper 1 and Paper 2 of various GCSE and A-level subjects are here to stay, forever! These will exist alongside their trimmed versions with the topic-specific Cheat Sheets.

Publicising the French Revision Portal

Parlez-vous franΓ§ais? Ou pas? Well, our bespoke French Revision Portal has just passed its beta testing stage and now finishing touches are being added to prepare for its global rollout. Complete with brand-new resources, detailed descriptions and links to pages and sites you might not have heard about, from all vocabulary of Le Silence de la mer by Vercors (Jean Bruller) to analysis of Les Choristes by Christophe Barratier, this dedicated section will constantly be getting new updates, new extracts, analysis and questions. 

For more information about the FRP, we've updated its announcement post with all the new information and how you can access it early!

A Brand New Vocabulary and Content Learning site

Hear me out. Imagine a combination of all your favourite learning sites, like Quizlet, Memrise, Duolingo, but made:

  • for competition and competitive events
  • with an intuitive design
  • completely free for all with no paid plan
  • with spaced retrieval in mind for best memorisation
  • around you?
This is truly a combination of all the sites you use right now but superpowered! 

Currently in Early Access and extended development. Contact @draggie to know more.

Discord Server Changes

At the heart of the iBaguette community is our growing Discord server. I've been making some changes and updates to it and now these new features are ready to be released! Here's a recap:

Bonus XP for those fun activities

Get ready for even more fun! Now, bonus XP will be allocated to those enjoyable and fun activities like in #counting, #one-word-story or #counting-with-lettters. Watch your XP soar whilst enjoying your learning experience!

XP Streaks and XP overall improved, once again!

No more missed streak penalties! We've completely revamped the XP Streaks system to make it more rewarding. Keep those Streaks going and earn even more bonuses! 

As well as removing streak penalties, we're adding unique rewards for Streaks at regular intervals like for 7 days and 30 days. It's up to you to discover these... good luck!

New Dedicated Q&A Channel

Introducing the #question-hub channel! This your one-stop, fast-to-access hub for everything you might want to know. Whether it's revision advice, questions about iBaguette services and APIs, you can get a quick response from our community of helpers, developers, professionals and educators. Ask questions, share knowledge, and earn bonuses for your helpful answers!

Even more customisable roles!

Yet more new roles and channel access have been added. Pretty self-explanatory, you can now pick up access and get notifications for everything that matters to you.

Your enthusiasm, support, and dedication continue to inspire us to improve the content we offer and build connections to reach more and more people for our goals: free, unified access to high-quality educational material.

Stay tuned for more exciting updates throughout the week as we continue to celebrate!

Happy Anniversary! πŸŽˆπŸŽ‚πŸŽ‰
