I think it would be more user-friendly if all the settings were included under the Settings button on the dashboard, and the Settings heading in the menu in the top right-hand corner of the dashboard. It’s quite hard to find where to change the options for when the translations appear, the size of the text box, etc. I went looking for those options today and it took me a long time to find them. I was happy to discover at the same time that I can turn off the sound effects, something I’d managed not to learn despite racking up over 1,900,000 points on the site.
A brief explanation of the site for new users, laying out how the points work, the various options and where to find them, would also be very helpful.
