I would like to be able to level up after I complete the level’s vocabulary (or percentage of).
Or I would like to have the option to choose to level up, instead of automatically leveling up!
That is because I don’t like the whole, “Congratulations You Leveled Up!!!.. now here is 120+ lessons” dumped on me feeling. And Half of the new lessons are From the Previous level. It’s not a very good positive reinforcement feeling.
It makes me feel like I’m immediately behind, instead of I just made an accomplishment today.
It reminds me at my old job, when I used to complete my work early, and so my boss would respond by immediately giving me more work to do. Eventually, I was doing more than double the work of my colleagues.
So then I just stopped working so fast. Because every time I did something fast, I got rewarded negatively.
I know that people don’t like to change what they’ve already gotten used to. So they’re going to feel that they would like to level up sooner than later, especially at the beginning.
However, “Thinking Different” can lead to greater success. Anything WaniKani can do to keep encouraging it’s users (like the level up emails) will both help us learners, but also increase success rates, buzz, and ultimately boost WaniKani subscription sales!!
Can there be some sort of setting in the app section, where I can change how WaniKani behaves?
Honestly as it is now, I’m starting to dread leveling up.
