So - around the late teens (Level wise) i had started to abuse the re-order script. I would use it to make sure i did radicals straight away, and then to make sure once my radicals were Guru’d, i did the unlocked Kanji straight away as well.
This led to some serious lesson back logging - but i was happy cause i was sailing through the levels !
Then I saw the The 0/0 Streak Challenge - this shamed me into getting my lesson backlog sorted. Since then i have decided to only use the re-order script to get the radicals out of the way immediately after levelling up. Once they are Guru’d I have to clear all the vocab from the previous level before i can get to the Kanji - and ALSO keep apprentice items below 150.
as can be seen below - this has slowed me down considerably - but i am less concerned with speed now, compared to the start - and more concerned with how sustainable my progress is. (Since burns have started coming around, I would use one word to describe WANIKANI - relentless.)
This experience has emphasised how important it is to get vocab done to reinforce the kanji readings - and preferably this should be as soon as possible after learning the kanji IMO.
Just thought i would share - as hopefully should act to emphasise that re-order should not be abused - and that going hell for leather is not the be-all-and-end-all, especially if you are sacrificing longevity by burning out.
