Hey everyone, I’m looking to release a major update to Wanakana — the kana conversion script used on Wanikani + other websites and extensions around the intertubes (kaniwani, bunpro, yomichan).
Every time I make changes though I find it hard to test effectively since I don’t have access to a device lab. It would be aaammaazzing if I could round up an army of gremlins (that’s you!) I can email/slack to battletest input every now and then (it would only take 30 seconds of your time maybe a few times a year).
The main issue is that all the desktop browsers + mobile keyboards + mobile IMEs + desktop IMEs can handle composition differently, and that’s… well… really time consuming to try to test by myself.
If you fit into any of the following buckets and would be willing to type a few words into a text box, put up your hand and I’ll edit this until we’re full.
[UPDATE: ok that’ll do for now unless you have a weird mobile input unlisted]
However, If you do use a different combination for IME input not listed below,
especially on a mobile device please say so and I’ll add that to the list!

I’m not sure of the easiest channel for communication. I could perhaps make a new thread when needed and @tag you all. I feel like a thread would be harder to organise (over time / different occasions) compared with individual emails? If I DM’d you all separately once we’re full to get your emails would that be reasonable? I dread the idea that 6 months from now I @tag people in a thread and only 2 people get the notification.
I don’t have anything to offer except gratitude and crabigator points*.
* points are non-transferable and redeemable only when you meet the great crabigator in the sky
