Because of the way the wrap-up button works, I don’t think that’s quite right… Yes, there’s the “most current 10 items” chunk… but until you get both parts of the item right, it’s still in there, I believe…
… Hm… You have me wondering though…

That’s how it seems to me, especially lately having cleared quite a pile-up.

Quick answer - if it asks for the meaning, type the translation. If there’s more than one word (To appoint, to Designate, to specify) only pick one of them. For verbs “to” in front is very important. When it asks for a reading, you’re typing out the pronunciation. Again, if there is more than one option, only pick one. Beware of small ゅ versus big ゆ, and etc.

Where do you think it’s different? I also meant to say that you have to get both reading and meaning right in the active queue to replace them. If you only get the meanings right for example you will be asked the readings of 10 items over and over.

The review system is like a “permanent wrap-up” with replacement.

I keep getting “onna” wrong because the input steals the second n to complete the first n, forgets that n and then accepts a so I enter “ona”. :sob: Is there anyway I can say “Oops, I made a typo” and correct my answer?

This is just a consequence of how IMEs have to function, or some combinations that use the “n” key would become impossible to type. You have to type “onnna” to make おんな appear correctly in any IME, not just on WaniKani.

There are userscripts for undoing mistakes, though, if you want to install one, such as Override and Double Check.

Thanks I’ll check those out.

I must’ve misunderstood your wording - it sounded like you were saying getting one half of the item right would potentially push the other half to theoretically 400 items away, rather than keeping it within the set of 10 at the front.

That’s how your explanation sounded to me, anyway. Especially because of your final sentence.

I agree with your amendment (and feel it’s more clear for new folks).

I have a question! What are the little coloured numbers on peoples’ icons? I believe that the lower number indicates your level, but I’ve also seen some black numbers at the top. What is that?

The number on the badge at the bottom right corner of the avatar represents the WaniKani level. Another difference is the color of the badge:

grey = unsubscribed user, has access the the free levels:

blue = subscribed user:

purple = lifetime user:

orange = level 60, official title “Master of Kanji”

Another feature of the forums are titles, these show up to the right of the username. Mine is “Tsundere Durtle”. These are rewarded based on participation in conversations, usually the staff members bestow these, but there are some like “Regular” who are based on the level of activity on the forum.

Not sure what black numbers on top you’re referring to though, can you elaborate?

We call this orange now, do we? O:

If I knew I was going for orange rather than for gold, I wouldn’t have bothered signing up. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

There’s black numbers here on these icons on top of the level.
