So basically they finished WK a while ago, but still hang around and created/manage a lot of bigger scripts. “Thank you, Jenny” and “Thank you, Kumirei” is an insider that developed in these Content Update threads, because Kumirei always used to thank Jenny and one day it escalated.

So, is Kumirei someone that helped develop WK, or is it just because of the escalation joke? lol

Obviously Jenny is part of the team because of the star next to her name, but I was unsure regarding Kumirei.

I’ve noticed there are some usernames that get referenced a lot, so at times I’m unsure if they are developers/staff, or just users who have been around for a long time that carry a lot of weight.

No, Kumirei is not a part of the staff, just a local celebrity. I think they actually started WK max two years ago.
There are a couple of personalities on here that have drawn quite a bit of attention to themselves through a lot of activity on the forums and various other things - in Kumirei’s case mainly the scripts.
If you want to find out more about the WaniKani lore visit this thread.

Edit: Kumirei’s profile says Joining date end of 2016, but I’m not sure if that’s when they really started.
