Hello! I am writing because my progress data is messed up due to a long break I took after starting on WaniKani.
When I started in October 2017, I was not yet ready to fully dive into learning kanji. Then I had surgery on my spine, which pulled my focus to recovering from my injuries for the following two and a half years. At this point, I have mostly recovered, and am learning Japanese again, having discovered the joy in doing so with WaniKani!
My only problem is that my progress data projections in the statistics websites and companion apps is super funky due to my break without using vacation mode. At the time, I had no idea these issues may arise in the future.
Since it technically took me 955 days to finish level 2, my projections for how long it will take me to finish a level are super high, usually almost three years. Level 3 took me about 9 and a half days to complete, and I’ve been in level 4 for about 5 and a half days. Now that I’ve completed the radical and kanji lessons for the level, Tsurukame has adjusted its estimated time remaining in the level from 999 days to 3 and a half days. Wkstats.com has adjusted its estimation to around 4 days.
I find this mildly frustrating, and want to have some more realistic progress data! It’s not a huge problem, but I would like to “fix” it if there is a way, so I have come here to humbly ask for assistance. If you are reading this and know of a way to safely alter my progress data without affecting the SRS, please let me know!
Many thanks and kind regards,
