New People Questions! ~~~<3 [Lost?! Confused?! We're here to help!]

All good, I’ll figure it out eventually. Thank you!

Do I have to go through the checklist in order to get kanji unlocks?

Where do I pay to get an account that gets me more than 3 lessons?

Looking at your profile I can see that you’ve guru’ed all 26 radicals from level one, which means that you should have more than 3 kanji lessons. All the content in levels 1-3 is free, and the checklist isn’t connected to anything, so that’s not what’s holding you back.

Do you guys think there’s a bug with Calg’s account?

Check again to see if you have more lessons; if not, then you maybe should email to have them take a look.

Thank you for replying, I took the time to look through the FAQ, and figured things out. I was just kinda frustrated that I was learning the same radicals for the last few days and thinking that I was missing something. That’s what I get for not reading. No bugs!




How do you get a graph like this? This is an example that I’ve shamelessly stolen from some thread btw :^)

@okappa Check this thread :slight_smile:

There’s a more recent version of this website being tested (it uses API version 2). You can check it out here :slight_smile:

The first version (that you can find on the first link) works well. The 2nd version has more updated data and can deal with certain situations better (for example, resetting the level would be a mess on version 1). Both work very well in normal circumstances and you can find that graphic in both :slight_smile:

So I’m new-ish to WaniKani. I just started around 11/6 or so to actually get into this, though it appears I signed up back in 2017 as my stats are now showing it has taken me 1041 days to get through level one. My question is, now that I’m at level 3 is there a point in me resetting to level one so that my levels aren’t off or just keep going as if I reset it won’t be accurate on how long I spent on levels 2 & 3 now since I will likely go through them faster a second time through. Opinions, thoughts, recommendations?

Honestly, it doesn’t matter how long any particular level took you, so if you know that you’re going to continue, i would just do so (watch out for the sale on lifetime around Christmas).

Thanks for your reply. Yes, I plan to jump on the sale when it comes up. I figure I can work on trying to burn the first three levels while I wait. I just figured since I was waiting on the sale to move past 3 I would have time to reset if it was recommended. :upside_down_face:

Btw, the subscriptions on WK are prorated :slight_smile: This means that if you were to subscribe for yearly and then the lifetime sale came, the price (with the promotion) of the lifetime would be reduced taking into consideration how much of the yearly sub you had yet to use. Being the promotion to $200 on lifetime, it would cost you around $120 instead.

Not sure if I expressed myself clearly enough :slight_smile:


I figure with me still having several days (at least) left on level 3 and the holidays and such coming up, it’ll time about right for me to just wait for the sale. But thanks for the tip. :slight_smile:

What would be a good way I can make sure I don’t miss that sale? I wouldn’t want to constantly look around in the forum.

Is there a way to enter both readings of a kanji in a quiz? So that I don’t get the popup “did you know that this kanji has another reading”.

If so, what separator character do I need to use?

I see that Wanikani has an API. Is there a list of public apps that use it?

I think the sale takes about a month, I don’t think you’ll miss it. It will also be announced on the dashboard. And I think the sale will probably be going on around the 10th of December at the very least, so check in then and you’ll likely find it.

There is not unfortunately. However, if the readings are important or commonly used, they will show up in your vocabulary items later on. So don’t worry about it, they’ll get put in your head :wink:

Yes, and there are a lot.

Oh, there are apps and there are user scripts.

I use wanikani exclusively on iOS. I guess I can’t have (neither install nor use) user scripts on iOS?

Yeah, I think you can’t.

However, there’s this user-made app that has a few scripts integrated I believe. Check it out :slight_smile:

yo, wassup guys
