This topic has so many replies already, but I’ll share what I have.
Look into some of the scripts–specifically ones that alter the dashboard. They can help know what’s coming up, how you’re doing, how consistent (or inconsistent) you’ve been with your reviews and such. Plus, they add some extra style. As someone else said, I would recommend not using the reorder scripts. They seem to often be abused and then people have massive buildups of lessons. I would also advise against the ignore script as it is easy to casually abuse it. It sucks to get spellings wrong sometimes, but they happen less if you just slow down.
With respect to lessons, I learned that it seems like it would be easy to go full speed and do all of your lessons at the beginning of each level in one big block. Don’t. It’s not worth it and you may end up being unable to do reviews because you don’t know them well enough. You can still get through at ‘almost’ full speed by just splitting up the lessons correctly. If you get through radicals, you have time to do the other lessons while you get your radicals up to guru. I usually do radicals and a couple kanji, then the rest of the kanji and some vocab when everything hits apprentice III. Then the rest of the vocab at apprentice IV so I don’t have to do vocab and new kanji at the same time.
Sorry for the huge block. Everyone else has contributed a ton as well. Good luck, and hope to continue seeing you around! If ever need any help, everyone here is super friendly (as you can already see).
