I really like the level up e-mails

Just wanted to say that. I always look forward to them. The gifs make me nostalgic for old forums and blogs

Same. I like the gifs, but I really like the % breakdowns. Knowing that I’ve covered X% of grade levels or JLPT levels is a fun fact to read after leveling

Agreed. It makes me feel a cozy sense of accomplishment, and encouragement for what can seem like a solitary journey.

Gifs are still alive and well on this very forum though

Me too! I really look forward to them, even when they are quite brief. It is super motivating.

I like them too ! It’s like having a personal trainer… except everybody get the same mail … but still I like them :smiley:

Sometimes I even want to go read it although I’m still in the middle of doing my reviews :sweat_smile:

It kinda dope to receive these emails. When I do, it like to keep my progress too and I share it with my friends to show that im progressing in learning japanese.

I miss them so much! :pleading_face:

Honestly, quite an underrated part of using Wanikani. It felt almost like an automated ‘personal kanji trainer’ each time I levelled up. I’d get encouraging words, a cute little motivating gif and a quick idea of some of the kanji coming up next.

They remind me of how I felt as a kid when I got stuff in the mail. I had this really cool book with addresses you could write to for free stuff. It was usually pretty dumb stuff. One time I got a box of “I love Idaho” stickers. (No offence to Idaho but pretty useless in my neck of the woods”). But still, I was a little kid getting stuff in the mail and for a minute it made me feel happy. Just like these little gifs and words of encouragement.

Just got the L40. The level up email system is great and we all need a burst of positive reinforcement. I like how it instantly arrives as soon as the system bumps you to next level. :smiley:

Yes, I love them! I wish they all had the level 60 stories though - those really motivate me

I really look forward to the level up emails too. I never really know what to expect from them, and they feel like a nice little reward for completing yet another level.
