Scripts are good in most cases, but with it comes with great responsibility. It’s difficult to trust ourselves, especially with the Override answer script and the Ultimate Re-order script. I used them very irresponsibly the first time. I didn’t use it all the time, but 2 or 3 times a week as “ah, that damn rendaku” is still irresponsible. It would allow me to fail to remember the rendaku again and again for the same item since I could just easily override the answer.
Nowadays, the only script I use within reviews is the Lightning mode script. No override for me anymore. I have come up to the point that I don’t care if I make a typo. The more I see the item, the better, and less chance I will make another typo or forget its rendaku on that said item again.
It’s not something you decide “yeah, I shouldn’t do vocab anymore”. It just happens incrementally with time. In my case, I felt more interested into knowing the next level’s kanji and thus, I gave them priority. Then what happens is that you see that avalanche of 100+ vocab in the way: it becomes a little inconvenient. At least that’s how I felt back then. Now, I just relax and do my vocabulary with the same enthusiasm as kanji. I’m actually enjoying Wanikani a lot more this way.
