One thing I’ve been chewing on for months, is that every time I’ve shared a video of myself doing Wanikani reviews, people on this forum & on /r/LearnJapanese express shock that I use no user scripts.
I really understand the impulse to have an undo button for cases when you go too quickly and make a typo, but I frankly would rather get a bunch of items unfairly wrong and see them again sooner than give myself the ability to rationalize “oh, well, I totally knew that” and potentially burn items that I really don’t know. (I worry a lot about whether I really “know” a word in general, and it’s the main reason I created KameSame.)
Above is my leveling speed since starting and never using a single user script. I’d estimate that about 30-40% of my incorrect responses are the result of me moving too quickly or fat-fingering a key, but (other than cursing with myself), I’d rather roll with that than potentially rob myself of actually learning kanji & vocab well enough to use them outside of the context of WaniKani.
Curious how others feel about this topic! If folks can identify good reasons, it might encourage me to make KameSame more user-extensible.
