Alright, I somehow read through the first chapter and… I understood some things!! Guess I have no excuse now, haha. I’m joining!

I was also confused by that at first, but then I realised that the community badge shows the level that you finished. You are probably still learning the kanji of level 30 (just like I’m currently learning the kanji of level 39).

nope…just log out and back in …

Ha, that makes no sense, but you’re quite right :joy:. I’m pretty sure I didn’t log out and log back in 38 times before this, though :smiley:

Yeah I logged out and in again and now it’s showing 30 lol. I suppose it usually takes some time to update and logging back in just forces it.

No, it’s a glitch. You can observe that (if you don’t log out in the meantime) the moment you level up next time, it will stay at the same level (because you now logged out and back in), but if you level up after that, at that exact moment it will jump one level, but it will always stay at the level before your current one. (I recently realized that this is also true if you reset :grin: - I reset twice in short succession, and after the second reset it jumped to the level that I first reset to).
I already filed this as a bug with the team a long long time ago, but so far it has not been resolved yet. :woman_shrugging:

Oh I see. Well, I suppose it’s not a pressing bug but let’s hope they solve it at some point lol.

If you’re as puzzled by it as I am, you could ping them which might maybe increase the chance that it gets more attention :rofl:

(I don’t mind even if you tell them that I sent you :grin:)

Lol I’ll do that then. Except I don’t know how XD

You could send them an email to hello@wanikani.com, or you could ping them on the dashboard if they are active there (go to the Help menu and select “Chat with us”). That should do the trick :slight_smile:

Alright then, will do.

Been using koohi to get some words in. It also makes me think about frequency, for instance I had over 100 words from shirokuma cafe (a manga I already read), but they only appear once, so it shows 99,9% of it is known to me. Yoru cafe sitting at around 25% now, but I haven’t generated all the cards there yet.

What usually gets added is onomatopoeic words, four kanji compounds, verbs I don’t know and animal/flowers.

Looks like I’ve made it to level 8 in time for this. Comparing the words I’ve learned since level 6 and the vocabulary list in the intro post there’s definitely still a bunch I wouldn’t know in time so thank you for that list it’s going to be a big help I’m sure. Really looking forward to starting this weekend, the book’s been taunting me since I got it :smiley:

Me too. I couldn’t contain myself anymore (after having taken it off the shelf and read the first page several times) and finished chapter 1 ahead of schedule … Can’t wait to discuss! :grin:

Same :sweat_smile:
I read the first page at least four times by now. Think I will start the book either tonight or tomorrow.

Started reading my first book with ABBC recently. Have since splurged on a bunch of new books to scratch the itch of wanting to read something everyday. Going with paperback for this one and it arrived today just in time! Super excited to start reading this alongside with everyone!
