Coming back from a loooong hiatus

Hey, meowchelle! Glad to see your smiling face back on WK :smile:

A few options:

  • Wanikani has added the ability to reset your level back to the level of your choice. You could, for example, reset back to Level 10 if that seems to be the cutoff of what you remember well. Also, WK has shortened the fastest level-up speed by 1 day per level, so you could get back up to 16 faster if that matters.
  • You could pause your account temporarily (vacation mode) and drill level by level, maybe using [Self-Study Quiz], until you feel like you’ve got them memorized more strongly. The quiz script lets you select items by level, SRS level, etc., so for example, you could choose your Level N apprentice items for quizzing. There’s also an Additional Filters script that lets you select Leeches – items that you get wrong repeatedly – for quizzing.
  • Regarding the changes that Leebo mentioned… There’s an interface somewhere on Wanikani that lets you choose to see the old or new mnemonics, assuming you rely on the built-in mnemonics enough for it to matter. I’m done with WK, so I haven’t really seen what all has changed.
