How mad do you get at wanikani?

I don’t get mad honestly, I have too much stuff to do so even if Wanikani leveling gets delayed I can just do extra in Anki or Bunpro. xD;

Mad enough to convince myself the app totally has it out for me!

Like when you know the reading, you type the reading, you check you’ve typed it correctly, you hit enter and it’s WRONG. Then you check what the correct reading is, and it’s the EXACT SAME THING you’re sure you typed and double checked before hitting enter!

The Crabigator has it out for me, guys. I’m telling you.

I used to up to about level 9. Now I like it (level 12).

I get particularly annoyed when it doesn’t include English words that mean the same thing. Although WankiKani had the same spellings I use, often it uses words I wouldn’t use being from England. Sometimes it even uses words I’ve never heard of so I have to learn the new English word as well. Also sometimes it uses American references like yankies.
I got really pissed off recently when trying to remember the meaning of 客。WaniKani has the memonic as a roof over a mouth in winter or some shit and then a level or two later introduces the kiss radical, so I’m looking at it thinking “kissing under a roof, wtf is that?”
I’m still angry about it now

I just unlocked 一斤 and 二斤 and I’m furious.
I don’t need this WK, thanks but no thanks. Such a mouthfull too

I’m definitely adding synonyms to them as “one bread” and “two bread” or something lol

I typically just get annoyed at myself for not paying enough attention. What does annoy me is when wanikani doesn’t have an obvious synonym set up and I don’t bother to check it myself and then I get it wrong.

Still relatively new. The amount of times I’ve gotten, “To Separate” and “To be cut” just because of the stupid ‘be’ word is enough to send me into a little rage. I put be in, 分ける but not in 切れる and I get it wrong every time. It’s just because I type it so fast. The second I hit enter I knew what I did without even having to look.

I know that I can do better, since I’m not past level one yet.

I had this same problem - two days a week where I can’t do reviews. My solution was to turn on vacation mode on those days. No reviews build up. I turn it off after the work day and it’s like that day never existed.

I’m getting better at not just straight up typing the pronunciation into the meaning box & hitting send so there’s that >_<

I do not get mad at all - I appreciate the fact that the item in question will appear with a smaller interval in my que and I have the opportunity to learn it well.

@JackCassidy I swear this happens to me at least 3 times a week.

I don’t get mad. I just get even. :smiling_imp:

Instead of getting the question wrong, I get madder when a synonym (really really synonym, at least for me) gets wrong. I know I am to blame because I forgot to add synonym, but there are times I just also hammer the enter key and get the item wrong.

(Not exactly synonyms but)Just like today, I got 県営 as part of my review. Since I’m in mobile and lazy to type, I typed “run by prefecture” which should be technically correct. Then I tapped tapped the enter, only realizing a second later it was labelled as wrong! Because WK says it should be “run by THE prefecture”

Goddamnit.
