SRS thinks I never sleep.
So I’ve been doing this for 12 weeks and I’m at level 7 and the thing that’s really frustrating me is that the SRS timer does not stop when I stop to sleep. Which means I often wake up to 60+ reviews. That’s just kind of demoralizing. Given that I average around 80% correct on my reviews and given that I try to have the discipline to write down the wrong answers that means 60 reviews can often take more than an hour to get through.
I like my reviews in smaller chunks. I can spend ten minutes 6 times a day and that’s a lot easier from a mental perspective than 60 reviews 1 time a day. And yeah, there’s the wrap up button, but that often means I’m repeating reviews because WaniKani’s in progress queue is too long.
I don’t know, I guess I’m just griping because as I look at the 12 reviews I just finished and then the overnight queue, I’d rather knock out another 20 now and wake up to 40 reviews, than wake up to 60 reviews. 40 seems to be the mental barrier. Fewer than that and it’s an, “ok let’s knock these out”, more than that and it’s a “oh sigh, I’m going to be here a while”.
I’d like the ability to have a setting that says, “automatically pause the SRS timer between 10pm and 5am.” And yeah, I know that that will make things move slower, but I’m signing up for that. And/or an auto pause the SRS timer when your review queue reaches a certain threshold.
There are a lot of complaints about 200+ review queues and I think those are valid complaints. And yes, there’s the vacation slider. But that requires active participation. I want the option to have the vacation slider automated.
