Simplified study watchtower
I think they should eliminate the reading of the WT and just go to straight-up Question&Answer mode.
They could even provide the correct answer to save everyone time. Read the question, read the answer.
Of course, you should feel free to answer in your own words (but don't get too carried away).
The GB decided, as of January 1, 2019, they are combining their editions (so no more printed simplified and standard editions).
Darkspilver, does this excerpt you quote mean January 1, 2018, not 2019?

Oh please God, yes!
We've shortened our WT Study to ZERO minutes. You can easily do the same!
No it is definitely 2019 and not 2018. My bet is the WT study will be shortened to 45 minutes not 30 minutes.
The level of writing style is already so dumbed down!!
So much for JWs thinking they are the best educated on the planet!
Well, as ToMo3 famously said once, "Jehovahs people are the thinkingest people an tha planet...."
