So… I’m a new user, so as suggested I read the new user guide. And I have some feedback on it.
First, the guide still has the old subscription prices ($10/m, $100/y) instead of the current ones:
Premium accounts are US$10/month or US$100/year. When you choose a yearly membership, you basically get two months of kanji learning goodness for free.
Second, when suggesting a textbook for further study, the guide recommends EtoEto:
Most likely, you’ll have enough kanji knowledge to comfortably start any Japanese textbook (we recommend EtoEto, as it works well with WaniKani) and not have to worry about kanji for a little while.
While it’s understandable to want to promote your own project, the fact that the link just leads to a page with “COMING SOON” on it in large (albeit friendly) letters is rather off-putting and not a good new user experience. Please at least provide a recommendation that works for new users at the time when they read the guide instead of some unspecified time in the future?
Words like K-A-N-J-I or C-R-A-B-I-G-A-T-O-R can be read only because you know the letters that constitute them.
I would argue that knowing the letters in C-R-A-B-I-G-A-T-O-R does not enable one to read that… thing… because IT’S NOT A WORD!
There, I feel better now.
Seriously, though, happy to be here, WaniKani looks like a great tool.
