Burn at level 5 ?
I burnt at level 4. It depends how long the intervals between level-ups are.
I’m in no rush! I don’t do all my lessons quickly - max 10 per day, more usually 5. I also take breaks when I’m not feeling it.
My pace is right for me.
And I’m actually level 6 - don’t know why forum always shows me a level behind what I am
Log out and log back in. Your level indicator will be updated.
That works, but I think it also updates if you just edit your About section of your profile! Less trouble than logging out and in again.
I’m now slightly concerned about my 174 burned having just hit 6. certainly lines up with how much slower I feel like I’m moving than most.
Why be concerned? If your pace works for you it’s the right pace.
I am just suprised.
Don’t be concerned. If you’re learning and not burning yourself out, you’re succeeding
I don’t understand how this could be surprising to someone who is familiar with the program. I do see how it might (and did) make someone feel bad about themselves though.
Congrats! Keep burning!
My initial thought was he got burn fairly quickly compared to when i got them. I did not mean to make it seem like how i said it. And if he felt unhappy. Then i apologize.
I had my first just a few days ago, too.
WK sends an email after leveling up to level 10 that says most people start burning around that time, but you’ll already have quite a few burns in the bag when you see that note.
How quickly you get through the levels doesn’t mean anything, of course, but the SRS does seem to work best with daily or at least near-daily reviews. How many lessons/reviews you do each day is more a function of how much time you have than how well you’re learning. As long as you are doing some almost every day, the system works (I’m utterly amazed at how much I’ve learned, painlessly, in six months).
I’ve been going at my COVID pace, with kanji and coffee for an hour or two every single morning. I installed the heatmap script a while back and was amazed to discover I already had over a hundred straight days of reviews. I used to travel a lot which made it hard to do anything consistently every single day (I once even “lost” a birthday in the air).
Now at 179 straight days, I really don’t want to break the streak!
Hey, we’re cakeday-buddies. Jan 3rd. Although I think you started lessons on the 4th, because my counter’s on 180. It’s all about that consistency
I had my first burns tonight too! Cheers!
The forum shows the last level completed, not the current level you are working on. I show as 9 but am working through 10. It does this consistently. I’m presuming those that show 60 have completed all of level 60 and are just working through to burn items. Maybe, someday, in the far distant future I’ll find out for myself.
If you log out and log back in it will show the level you are working on. I am working on level 11 and it shows I am level 11. @Ssujh1 this is your explanation.
