How mad do you get at wanikani?

How mad do you get at wanikani? When you get a lot wrong for example. Or when you realise you mistyped something and got it wrong? HOW MAD DO YOU GET? and what do you do with all this RAGE?! haha :japanese_ogre: (actually mad at yourself, not the system btw)


Like I wanna throw my laptop across the room and throw a rage party


I sigh very loudly for like three seconds.


I become pretty angry with myself when I mistype something for the so-manieth time :stuck_out_tongue: Yes, I know that is counter-productive but I can’t help it …


Haha yeah! The more I get wrong, the more I get mad and then the more I get wrong. A vicious cycle


I am working on completely detaching my emotions from review accuracy. I’m getting better at it…

I noticed that my tendency to wanting to be perfect greatly influences my motivation.


These days we are like a quirky couple who has learned to work out our differences and only gets upset for the little amount of time we spend together and how often we see each other.
My next review is in eight days.


I curse the Japanese language itself. It was obviously invented by trolls to confuse unwary foreigners.


I just feel completely dumb lol, I’m not (yet) at the point of letting rage get to me (it’ll happen soon enough aha)

i get mad cause i get frustrated easily so when i mistype or think wanikani should give me the answer for a slight typo i get mad >:( esp cause some people get their wacko typos passed!!!

I think there’s a script for that… :sweat_smile:

The override script. I still haven’t used it but I have it installed.


I’m mostly getting mad at my piling up reviews. When I’m doing them everyday they relatively easy to maintain. But when I have to take day off… BOOM reviews > 9000.
And then I have to spend whole week to go back to usual pace.

Small tip, if you getting mad at typos you can try wanikani override userscript [OBSOLETE] Wanikani Override ("ignore answer button")


Wk has a built-in leniency for meaning spelling errors. The longer the word, the more lenient it gets for allowing mistakes, but you cannot make any errors on a word that is 3 letters or less. Any error in reading is always 100% wrong, for obvious reasons.

So even without scripts, not every error is punished.


I get genuinely frustrated that the SRS isn’t remotely intelligent or customisable. It could be helping me remember better based on past performance, instead it’s just sticking to some extremely basic hard coded time periods. Not to mention the reliance on third party scripts. Software should be better than this. (The content/curation is good and the community is good, that’s what makes it so irritating.)

If my mistake is close enough I’ll just ignore it and answer correctly. Life’s too short to care about small mistakes. That’s why ignore scripts exist.


I use the double check script, which helps prevent me from raging at typos. You have to be very careful not to abuse it though and using it to claim you knew something when you didn’t. But it’s a lifesaver for those moments when you type the reading in the meaning category or have a typo. Before I installed the script, I would rage hard at myself for stupid typos, especially when it delayed my leveling.


Probably not the kind of answer you were looking for, but I usually don’t really end up getting very mad at stuff. (But I am technically answering the question though, my answer is just “not much”)

I do definitely make a fairly decent amount of typos though.


I’ve gotten so used to going through my reviews so quickly that I double tap my enter key, pretty frustrating when you make a typo in reading… So yeah, how do I deal with that? Like any sane person would, by banging my head on my desk.


Something that could possibly help is the script Mistake Delay. I also had / have the habit of hammering my enter key when I’m doing a large review pile. On cards that I thought I knew, I’d sometimes be surprised at the red screen, but would move past it before I could actually check what the correct answer was. …sometimes repeatedly. >_>

This script delays the enter input after an error, so that you have time to re-read the mnemonic, and not move past the card due to muscle-memory without knowing what your mistake actually was.


Ah, I figured there was a script for this, was just too lazy to look it up I guess. Thanks a bunch! I’ll be using this.
