This is about as wrong as it gets!
If you email them they’ll probably add it.
Thanks, I thought this part of the forum might have been checked for this sort of stuff. I’ll do an email
You’d think they would, but…
Though it should be noted that you made a small spelling error in which case the blacklist wouldn’t pick it up anyway. Definitely email, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this one is in there already.
I thought this was already blacklisted. I was going through this forum, Your worst typos WaniKani has accepted, some time ago, and I came across something similar. Maybe it was about the Transitive Verb meaning accepting Intransitive Verb as answer…?
You can also tag the @JenK. It’s like magic.
Maybe the misspelling of “transitive” is bypassing the blacklist. Which is to say, “transitive verb” is blacklisted, but “transative verb” falls back into “close enough”.
You’re right on this one. We actually already have “transitive verb” on the blacklist but because of the misspelling here, it got accepted.
Should the blacklist check the same “distance” (or whatever it’s called) as the accepted answers and mark the answer wrong if it’s closer to the blacklist than an accepted answer?
But then it gets REALY tricky. What if someone submitted “ntransitive verb”? Is it an extra letter typo or an omitted letter typo? For example.
Right now we only have fuzzy matches (the “distance” thing) for the correct meaning only, and not the blacklist. The example @raephe gave is a good one for why we don’t have it for blacklist. If we have it on for the blacklist with a low tolerance (like one error off), ‘ntransitive verb’ would be marked incorrectly.
Agreed. I think common misspellings could be added to the blocklist but fuzzy matching to a blocklist would be a bad idea.
I have a personal preference for allow/block lists over white/black lists, sorry
