So I’ve complained about this before…but it’s really out of hand and yes I’m just dumb and lame and have CRS. But first…yes I know about scripts, yes I know how to use them, yes I have tried and used them all…no please don’t waste time suggesting them…I’m just lame and stupid and nothing works…not looking for suggestions…posting something hoping our crabigator and fearless leaders are listening…
Personally it’s nice that people want to make interface updates, but generally I could care less and would prefer better SRS functionality! WK please some dynamic SRS for those of us that aren’t 20 years old and can remember stuff easily. And while dynamic SRS is a tall order, as a consideration, a toggle switch that gives us a slower option with more reviews with different spacing…could prove equally worthwhile.
I’m already going slow compared to the speed demons and I have about 500 leeches because mostly of guru2 and enlightened intervals being particularly bad for my memory personally. I’ve missed items that have been enlightened 2x and maybe even 3x now…also still have non burned L1 items…ugh…it’s beyond discouraging not being able to retain this stuff.
A slower option that we could turn on where maybe the intervals are more frequent
Appr 1, 2, 3, 4 and Guru1 unchanged
Guru 1.5 = 1.5 weeks
Guru 2 = 2 weeks (this is one of the worst for me personally)
Guru 3 maybe = 3 weeks
Guru 4/Master 1 maybe = 4 weeks
Master 2 = 6 weeks
Master 3 = 2 months
Enlightened 1 3-4 months
Enlightened 2 5-6 months (burn)
I don’t know if this is ideal or not but it would be more reviews and yes it would take longer but ugh…I’m so sick of missing burns because I just can’t remember them after 4 months and they go around and around and just clog all the reviews and then SRS helps you learn them “WRONG” which is just worse reinforcing the wrong readings…I’ve missed stuff 20+times…you’d think I’d finally learn it but no…I’m dumb… so be it…I accept I’m lame with memory and language…but these SRS intervals are just reinforcing the mistakes and killing my motivation. 55 of my 63 apprentice items are leeches / 231 of my 418 guru items are leeches / 93 of 368 master are leeches…at what point do you just say screw it and stop learning kanji…
Really wanna learn and do well but just so frustrated with bad srs invervals …I know I cannot be completely alone with these bad intervals…but this platform is so great would be nice WK itself actually did something to fix leeches…other than recycle them over and over again…at least anki pulls them out of the deck so you don’t learn them wrong…which is probably part of why I feel doomed and stupid.
Please crabigator consider something for those of us that aren’t as young as we used to be and/or want a slower pathway with more frequent intervals, even if it takes longer. At this point so many of my reviews are taking a year anyway what difference does it make.
Oh crabigator are you listening? amen or blessed be or latom…or whatever our great overlord wants to hear…
