I finally fixed the grammar deck

For a long time I couldn't understand why some people had trouble loading my grammar deck into Anki, but now I've figured it out. It's because the deck name in Anki was simply "Korean Sentences" and if someone already had a deck with that name then understandably there were some issues. So the fix was simple - I renamed my deck to "Korean Grammar Sentences by Evita". That should solve all the problems.

Uhm, you didn't record the audio yourself which I guess means that you didn't also write any of these sentences, so how can you call them as your own?
Reading the description of your Anki deck it appears as if you created all this work, but you are merely reorganizing and redistributing someone else's work as flash cards.
I doubt this is considered acceptable by the terms and conditions (https://ankiweb.net/account/terms),
but atleast you shouldn't have presented the work as your own. You should seriously credit the original creator of the audiofiles/content, or better off asking their permission to redistribute it before doing so.

Uhm, I'm not calling the sentences my own, I'm calling the deck my own. I have three decks on Ankiweb and I want people to know they were created by the same person. What's wrong with that? Nothing.

As for giving credit, the majority of decks in Anki come from textbooks and language classes, it's unavoidable since the decks are created by learners, not native speakers. When my deck had only two or three sources, I also listed them (Talk to me in Korean, Korean Grammar in Use, Click Korean), but gradually the pile of books grew and now I don't see the point of listing them all. This deck is not representative of any textbook, and it doesn't replace any textbooks. It's simply a convenient way for people to practice what they have learned.

And finally, if you look carefully, you will notice that not all the sentences have audio. It's because I created this deck using my own methodology and I thought the sentences were needed even though they were not in my normal resources, so I got them somewhere else. You have no idea what you're talking about when you say I'm just "reorganizing someone else's work". I have spent more than 1000 hours working on this deck and I haven't received any money for it at all, I'm just doing it to help others learn Korean easier. Comments like yours make me wonder why I'm doing it at all.

Evita, I just wanted to let you know that you did a wonderful job and all your hard work and time devoted to putting the deck(s) together is very much appreciated.

It's definitely not just "reorganising and redistributing someone else's work".
I've been using Anki and making my own decks since the early 2007, so I should know.

Good luck & looking forward to updates. 화이팅!

Agreed! I can't imagine how much patience you've had to create such great decks. And it's really awesome that you shared them!

The language books better try catching up and sell their books with some good Anki decks already made.
