Olympians (<100 days left!)

I was trying for like 10 minutes to get Python to accept the emoji but it was just not having it and then I was so frustrated I just changed it by hand
But I will try again, I do not want to change all the past days by hand :sweat_smile:

btw the emoji language looks like fun, will torture my students with it :smiling_imp:

Can’t you just use a comparison function and the unicode number of the emoji? Say “if team==[unicode]: replace([unicode],火)” or something like this?

Shoot, I’m totally down to give this a shot. Starting WK today at level 1 (though I have been exploring Japanese for a year or so now.) I doubt I’ll get to level 60 in 60 weeks, but why not have some fun along the way?

That sounds about right :sweat_smile: did you catch up to those reviews? I’ve had 0 reviews due (at some point in the day) for two days in a row now and it feels awesome

Welcome! Just let me know your speed and which team you want to join (team 火 right?) (you can find info on both above the leaderboard) and I’ll add you!

can you take my reviews :weary:

y- you saw nothing!

Yes that was my intention but for some reason python was not accepting the unicode, it was not even opening the file with the emoji in it. I tried utf-8, utf-16 and other stuff.
For sure some mistake on my side :relaxed:

@shoshinonryu

Hey there, and welcome to wanikani! I’d suggest you try the Race to 60! December 2020 JLPT thread, since their deadline is a few months after ours, so you could get to level 60.
がんばれ!

(sorry you got tagged panda-san :sweat_smile: and it looks like you beat me to it!)

Getting from lvl 1 → 60 in 15 months is indeed pretty rough, as you’d need to go at an average of 8 days/level without a fail.
If that sounds like too big a commitment you should probably head over to Race to 60! December 2020 JLPT instead, the deadline is 3 months later which makes it a bit more manageable.

I got them all out of the way on the train back home yesterday, but since I’ve slowed down and skipped lessons because of the wedding those aren’t looking good at all :sweat:
Getting used to 12 days/level will be pretty frustrating :sob:

I get notified for every reply to the topic anyways :man_shrugging:

Great job everyone on the hard work.
Team 水 : let’s keep learning and moving up the board. A few reps (reviews/lessons) a day will keep the crabigator away.

Those level 1-3 members that aren’t active anymore are really bothering me :see_no_evil:

Let’s purge the high level users too, they make us look bad

Haha me too. I was thinking of doing a ~50 day purge (so in 11 days, or any time really) at least for the bottom half of the leaderboard, since even if they eveeeentually come back it probably won’t be possible to get to 60 by the olympics anymore. And they can always add themselves back later if they want. I can leave that to you if you’re down!

no no, we couldn’t without them noticing :eyes:

Also, even if they come back, who knows if they still want to be a part of the group?
If trying to go fast (even with penguins threatening you) doesn’t work, it’s probably best to take it slow.

Not sure if we want to add an inactive list though, feels a bit like a list of shame :thinking:
Could just @ and remove them?

Announcement June/3/2019


Because the leaderboard is getting quite long and a lot of fields (speed and team) are still blank, we’ll be ~purging~ it for the next few days. Members who have all the fields filled and have been leveling up / active on the forums lately will be left, but those who haven’t leveled up in >1m, and haven’t logged into the forums for >1m will be taken out and can add themselves back when they come back to WK. I’ll also be @-ing people to fill out their team and speed some time eventually to get this leaderboard all full and pretty. That being said I doubt anyone reading this will be affected so don’t mind this. peace :v:

I removed you guys from the leaderboard because it seems like you are inactive. If you feel like you are still up for the challenge, just post something with @GrumpyPanda and I’ll add you back to the leaderboard. You could also consider joining with Race to 60! December 2020 JLPT instead if you’ve hit a rough patch. The deadline is three months later, which makes it a bit more manageable.

@carlostdev smashing the reviews like it’s no big deal
Congrats on the level-up!

:sweat_smile: Thanks!
So far so good, I’m fearing for level 5

I’d say that since I started doing 30 lessons/day at lvl 5 it is still manageable, i get around 100-120 reviews daily. Had I done all the lessons in one go I think I’d be at around >250 reviews/day, which wouldn’t be manageable

That sounds promising :smiley:
Sounds like we’re doing a similar approach so thinking on 100-120 daily reviews really gives me peace of mind.
