For any answers given as a number, the user should be able to use the number pad on their keyboard to enter the answer to raise more rice.
For example, in the Multiplication Table category, someone could key their answer in on their computer kayboard to make the process more efficient and raise more rice!26 votes
I'm the owner of the group for the school I work at. I'd like to be able to remove students that leave/graduate. It'd be nice for any faculty/staff that leave too.43 votes
I have a werid problem where i get the correct answer and it says "If you can see this text, you may have an ad blocker or software enabled that is preventing us from displaying the sponsored ads that are paying for the grains that you are earning. Please disable the ad blocker or software?" i have no such software (that i know of at least,i share this computer with the rest of my family) and not only that,but sometimes the ads DO show up,proving that my above statement.at first it's just normal ads,but then soon it start's show the message.then it starts going between the two(i think),and soon after that it's 95% message and once in a blue moon a actual ad,which at that point i'm so desperate for ads (for rice) that i'm paying attention to them (a pen that records sound? i wonder what kind of sanagens i can get into with that....)

In recent weeks, it’s become apparent that the problem may be connected to internet speed.
Can we check what internet speed you are using?
Thank you for your support and for taking the time to write to us!
Apparently, I cannot donate rice whenever my rice total for the day ends in 90 (ie 190, 890). I find that I have to log off and log in to be able to donate again, but the same error occurs usually at 190 again.8 votes
Would it be possible to let us know your username?
Also, we have a very aggressive antibot system, implemented after we found our site inundated with bots that were overloading servers and discouraging sponsors. You may find, simply slowing down a bit will resolve the problem?
Please let us know if the suggestion above works?
Thanks for taking the time to raise rice!
There should be a new subject with american world history. All about america7 votes
I had a total of over 37K grains of rice as of yesterday. Today, I logged in and my rice total has dropped to 640 and it says I just became a member today when I've been a member since september. This isn't really fair at all! I'd really like it if my member info and rice total would go back to the way it was!11 votes
That is greatly worrying indeed. Could you please let us know your username so the developers can careful investigate this?!
Ps. if anyone else has experienced this, please let us know in this thread?
I already use the site to help me study for my French class, I enjoy studying on this site because it helps and I know I'm helping out as I'm learning. Many of my Japanese classmates, along with other friends agree that it would be great tot have a more fun and interesting way to learn and study Japanese

the ability to create a group and then allocate username/password for a class WITHOUT the need for each student to register via email would be extremely useful and render the game more effective in an educational setting -eliminating the need for parental consent emails - tedious if you teach three classes.... (and esp. useful for primary/elementary age students)35 votes
It would be very helpful and I would use this more. And just more languages in general. Also sign language please!17 votes
If you can stop the cursor sticking every 6 or so answers, you will increase no. of players AND rice5 votes
i think they should have a prize to mail everyone who succeeds with 50,000 grains or more a day. for instents, a bronze medal on a necklace or a card that has congrats on it. jus sumthing simple to encouage players to play more often9 votes
We would need to think of something that would not cost us anything – we donate 100% of the rice raised on Freerice, leaving us with very little budget for prizes…
But perhaps we can think of another incentive.
if you gte a certain amount of rice money you can get rice money. Then with the rice money you have you can buy 2x... harder questions, 2x rice money, games, and more. THIS IS A REALLY GOOD IDEA!!!!2 votes
Public sector organizations conduct a lot of surveys that usually have a return percentage of 30 or lower. What if Freerice could be integrated with surveys, so that people would have greater motivation to participate in them? It would result in win-win - participants learning something and donating rice and the public sector organizations getting better data.5 votes
When I first signed up, I checked my totals after a while and found that they had all disappeared. I logged back in again today and earned 400 grains; however, it showed up as 20 grains, and then eventually disappeared to 0. Why is this?1 vote
Firstly, can we check what your username is? And can we double check that you login each time you play?
Also, can you please email firstname.lastname@example.org separately (we may need to change your password to test it)?
We are looking closely into your problem.
I love Freerice. Still, as English is only my second or third language, I find that it's practically impossible to get above level 35. I would love to use Freerice with my pupils, but it's far too demanding for them. So I would like a section for learnes of English. It would be possible to use exactly the same system as Freerice has now to make relatively easy questions. The level for the highest questions could be near-native. And by the way, the foreign language sections you have now (German, French etc) are ridiculously easy. More levels for those please.6 votes
The world map does not reflect South Sudan, and I do not think some countries are ever tested. (Honduras? Burkina Faso?) Correct me if I'm wrong! :D11 votes
There should be a subject for inventors. ie. Who invented the light bulb? Who invented the airplane? etc.11 votes
Thanks for your support and suggestion!
An option that could let the user play for a specific group automatically every time we sign on instead of having to choose after each login would be fantastic.80 votes
We are doing a fundraiser at my school using this program. I've had to create 2 separate accounts already to hold all the groups I need. Each teacher get's his/her own group for our little competition. The problem is that I can't add anymore groups in my accounts. I don't have as many in my second as I do in my first and they both refuse. I need help!4 votes
Thank you so much for your support,a nd encouraging your students to raise rice!
Could you give us a little more information:
- can you let us know your two usernames for the two profiles?
- can we double check that you’re not using one set of log in details for many players (ie students) – please note this overloads our servers and risks your profiles being identified as a bot
- Do you mean groups or profiles? Please note, groups can be found here http://freerice.com/groups/create and do not have login credentials.
