I just unlocked level 27 . . . and less than a day later I have 23/32 Kanji showing as Active on the Kanji Level specific page for levels 21-30. The 23 pink rectangles all show the “new” circular red dot. However I only did 1 lesson for the Kanji: Retreat. The other 22 Kanji shouldn’t show as “new” until I do their lessons, correct?!
If you are using the script WaniKani reorder script, I think that might be the cause. For whatever reason, if you have that script on when you do your lessons, it displays as having all of those items as new instead of not learned.
Level 26 is a fast level, meaning you only have to complete the kanji you got along with the radicals to level up. When you guru’ed the kanji and leveled up you probably did the same with the radicals, giving you access to the remaining level 26 kanji.
Thanks! That makes 26 the only odd man out in a way, as the others are in the ends (with 48 being the silly one not keeping with the rest of them (assuming 48 is the long level and 46, 47 and 49-60 being short) )
Wow, so, doing it fast (3.5 days) or “normal” (7 days) is a difference of almost 2 full months of time! (only counting 15 levels, ignoring lvl 1 and 2)
I’m very tempted to go full speed on them all, at least the first few and see if I’m up to it =)
I honestly don’t see much of a reason to try and do 3.5 day/levels. That just seems like a mess. It’ll will influence your amount of reviews and your learning of the Kanji. Unless you can learn 30+ Kanji per day and not confuse them with lower level ones… I’m aiming for 5 day levels because that allows you to divide the Kanji in 2 days while still having 3 days for the vocab (high levels have less than 100 words).
that is a good aim =)
I might do the same =^_^=
I just like keeping them on same days, as I know I have the time to start of on Sunday mornings and Wednesday evenings (my level/half level spot now for several months )
But at the end there I might let it differ for the sake of retention =)
With 5 days for the short levels, you’ll already be saving around a month of WK. For people used to speed levels while keeping a high accuracy, that might not be a nightmare… but I wouldn’t say the same would happen with 3.5 days.
Also, I honestly believe we’re still extremely naive in terms of WK. We have yet to start burning items and that might be a game changer in terms of how we use WK.
(I’ll be starting burning lvl 1 radicals tomorrow, but that’s nothing compared to burning items from higher levels).
I don’t think he is referring to unexpectedly reaching the next level as he is referring to having all of his kanji listed as new even though he only did a lesson with a handful of them. Normally, they are only supposed to be listed as locked if you haven’t done the lesson yet. But, they’re listed as new in his case.
Again, I think this happens whenever you access your lessons even just once with WaniKani reorder. That, for some reason, makes the items go from locked to new regardless of what you’ve done.
