Numbers and numbers


Why? lol



I don’t think I’ve ever read a more “meh” reason before. lol

I’m sure someone will correct me if the system disallows it, but you can add your own synonyms to WK. You can add numerals as an accepted synonym when you encounter them in your coming reviews. Or you can go to the kanji page and add the synonym there.

Haven’t done this myself, so if it doesn’t work, well… I just gave you some useless advice in that case. :+1:


I will definitely give this a shot. Thanks for the tip! :smiley:

There is script that fixes this I can’t remeber the name of it, but either way you will know from now on that you need to type it out.

Is it really meh? If “4” was allowed and you typed “5” you would get the answer right and that would be pretty unhelpful right?

But also this makes me wonder, when we learn a kanji for “I” (I haven’t learned any yet), if i typed another letter, would get that right as well?

I think you’re misunderstanding the meh.
I get the answer wrong because they had to leave out a correct answer due to the way they coded their system to be lenient with answers?

It’s ironic, thus meh. lol

If the answer is three characters or less, any change will be an error (for example the zenn for 禅 I like to keep entering). For four characters you can do two mistakes (like flipping two letters), and for longer inputs even more errors are accepted.

So 4 for 四 technically should work (you can actually enter ? for ), but currently for vocab like “Floor 42” you can enter “Floor 99” and it will just give a warning.

There are not that much vocab with numbers anyway, so adding a special handling for that input seems low priority.


Thanks for explaining that!
