Level 58 (a couple of hours ago) and, more importantly, I have finally reached 3000 burns! I now stand at 270/1292/1224/2893/3000.

I’m finding more and more kanji for which vocabulary isn’t included. This is unpleasant to me, since I learn to associate kanji with meanings mainly through the associated vocabulary. But oh well.

I love the 膜 (membrane) - associated vocabulary. 角膜 (horn-membrane) is cornea, 網膜 (net-membrane) is retina and 鼓膜 (drum-membrane) is the eardrum. It’s like some Japanese translator back in the 19th century or so sat down and seriously considered how to translate the Latin, concept after concept. It’s the exact same in my native language - while we also don’t use the exact words “cornea” or “retina”, we also use words which translate into “the horn thing” and “the net thing”. (For those who aren’t interested in Latin, cornu means horn and rete means net. Hence “cornea” and “retina”.).

I’ve stopped updating the wiki with every level I gain, mainly because I keep forgetting to :sweat_smile: but I hit level 26 yesterday! Getting closer and closer to that halfway mark…

now I just need to get through my massive (mainly vocab) review pile

After 13 days I’ve climbed one more floor/step/level, to 47. I’m just happy that this climb is happening in air conditioning, because even walking outside is not fun (too hot too humid).

I fell off for a long while. I’m back and reset down quite a few levels. Going to go at a more manageable pace and just aim for level 35 by the goal date. Just wanna make it to that first observation deck! It won’t be as grand as the top of the tower, but I’m sure it’ll still have a real nice view.

@KyokaJiro kinda of update stats.
I missed one of my review sessions so i am kinda taking it slow and stopped doing lessons. How about you (i still can’t see your level… did you by any chance level up already?)

You can’t see my level because it’s “Beyond Infinity” :wink:

Due to IRL stuff, I haven’t been doing lessons for the last 7-10 days. So L42 will be painful with full of L41 vocab.

Will slowly restart the kanji lessons for 41 and in another 4-5 days, I may move to the promised land :grin:

Hope you deal with that stuff smoothly. And keep going in the marathon. And don’t give up😜

Between my normal classes and studying for N4 in December, I think I will be at my current level until further notice. I wanted to get to the observation deck but highly unlikely at this stage. :smiley:

Notice:
I was just going to compile a new plot for the stats, but there appears to have been a major reset of the leaderboard just a few hours ago which set the table back to a state from 1-2 months ago. You can see that the current table of users that have reached Level 60 ends with May, so that can’t be right. I’m not sure how to fix this, so I ask some more experienced user around here to repair the tables.

I’ll look into it.

Ok, I did the restore manually (only OP can restore a version I guess).
Good thing, there were only two edit, that I’ve reapplied (including @OokamiShinjou our latest member!).

Only one i haven’t treated is @crinoid1 as there were too many edit (not pointing finger there, but reapply your edit more carefully please) :wink:

Since I finally decided WK is more than worth its monthly subscription price, and I had a goal of level 60 around mid-2022, I’ve joined in on this goal. I’m able to put in many hours every single day so it shouldn’t be too difficult. It’s more a matter of motivation for me… and not being lazy. Need to practice the leeches while I wait for WK reviews.

The consistency of the level-ups is insane. Very nice.

After reading the post about the table being a little off, I kept a tab open just in case I needed to reenter my entry. I appreciate that you did that for me. Thanks.
