After two years of fairly consistent use of CP's free content, I decided to purchase a premium subscription -- I feel I have an obligation to support a resources I use frequently. However, the additional features I now have access to are not useful: everything is in simplified characters. I look up traditional forms often enough that the benefits of the vocab lists are not effective; I could make my own lists from the audio content alone with little added time -- have been doing this for a long time as a non-paying user. I would especially like to see the personalized vocab list in traditional.

Is CP planning to juxtapose traditional and simplified sets in the future?

My current texts use the juxtaposition method:

Anything Goes: An Advanced Reader of Modern Chinese (Chinese Linguistics Project, Princeton University, 2005)

A Reflection of Reality: Readings in Contemporary Chinese Short Stories; An Advanced Reader of Modern Chinese (Chinese Linguistics Project, Princeton University, 2006)

I believe that the situation "Chinese orthography" finds itself in requires learning resources to juxtapose sets – if an all-embracing scope is desired.
