Hi Shotgun Lagoon

To be honest I have no i idea why i was the lucky one but i am thankful and would like to keep it. 

Here is the story

A few days back i posted a chat topic named ‘changing profile name’. When I chose my first profile name I assumed that the profile names could be changed with ease ( I was also really eager to try WK out after watching the you-tube vid on Rosetta stone by Tofugu).  I received a reply on the chat advising me to email hello@wanikani.com. Some commotion arose when other WK disciples posted on chat saying that they tried and got no reply. Koichi himself cleared hosed away those flames of commotion. I wanted a change of my profile name but they gave me halifax extra. When Koichi read my email he was probably thinking…’ how in the sekai did that baaaga think of hd00056,. hd00056 does look like one of those ridiculous windows live account recommendations.

The secret revealed . hd00056 is my university username. 

I know right, I need to get out more :S

I got it from a fortune cookie.

The fortune cookie writers were very uninspired so I’m certain others got the same one.

This topic I created. I was sharing a methodology I used to increase the effectiveness in which I memorized kanji.

There were a lot of nay sayers, but when I had time to do this I was annihilating kanji/ levels. Every single item I learned using this method was burned with zero difficulty because it maximizes the SRS effectiveness. I plan to get back into this pretty soon.

 So reading through your method, the first stage is basically this: at level 22 (say), make a deck of flashcards for level 23 kanji. While following the WK SRS system for level 22, practice the lv 23 kanji in my spare time using the deck. When level 23 comes along, I'll have already offloaded some of the learning process to the deck, and can blast through WK faster. The idea, then, is that the deck serves as a sort of kanji pre-school. Is this right? At 23, I then make a lv 24 deck. I also throw in kanji I'm having trouble with, and if I want, lv 22 kanji.

My sect name came from this thread. I had sent an e-mail to hello@wanikani.com and never received a response. I had figured it got lost or my e-mail did not deliver it. My e-mail is challenged at times. After the issues with this thread, I laughed out loud when I saw the sect name. Koichi had responded and asked about the e-mail he had never received and I thought had been sent.  Looking back now, the sect name will always remind me of this funny little exchange.

 This pretty much sums it up.

 It's an interesting idea. Maybe I'll give it a try for a few levels, see how it works. I've tried reordering my queue recently to prioritize kanji and it failed abysmally.
