Race to the Cake 🍰

Looking for a study buddy around the same level as you are? Looking for someone approximately at your leveling speed? Look no further, you have found the perfect topic!

Note: There is already this one, but the OP hasn’t been seen in a while and I think it‘s kind of messy. So here is a new one.

:bangbang:Some important notes:

  • Please do not change other people‘s information or group membership. It‘s everybody‘s own decision which group they will join, if you think it‘s inappropriate, post something below and tag them.
  • Please try not to delete people by accident (who knows, might happen).
  • Name your group whatever you like! (I really want to see some crazy names). Join any group you like! The rules below should be seen as guidelines, not strict rules to abide to.

How it works:

If your trust level is “member” or higher:

  • The second post will be made into a wiki.
  • Study buddies will be organised into groups.
  • A group consists of people approximately at the same level and having more or less the same leveling speed. But in principle, you can join any group you like, or found one together with some Wanikani-buddies!
  • To add yourself, you can either create a new group by writing
  • …or you add yourself to a group by writing your name, level and speed at the appropriate place. (Tip: you can select all names in the list and tap image twice, to give all listed items automatically the correct numbers. Apparently it even works if you leave the wrong numbers, it is still shown correctly.)
  • When you add yourself to a list: put your name below the lowest person who has the same or higher level than you have (see below for an example).
  • You can calculate your speed using this splendid site, but take care to ignore some of the unusual levels that mess up your statistic and were completely out of the ordinary.
  • Update regularily and, if you overtake someone, advance yourself in the list!
  • No cheating!

If your trust level is below “member”, you will have to post your updates into this thread and ask for someone to add you into the post. There are a lot of very helpful people in this thread.

Example

Notes:

  • You can, of course add yourself to a group with higher speed or levels if you want to challenge yourself, or lower if you want to take it slower than before.
  • You can also change groups when events in your life force you to go slower, or you suddenly have a lot of time on your hands and turn into Speedy Gonzales.
  • I‘ll keep the right to moderate, for example if someone trails at the bottom of a list, hasn‘t been seen in ages, hasn‘t advanced at all, and all others are much further, I will remove that person from the group.

Let the race begin!

Good idea, thank you! ^.^ I’ll try to bring my level up faster now. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

But I kinda fell into wishful thinking there… I’m still a fresh level 6, not level 7. XD Already changed it. :slight_smile:

2 Likes

Don’t mean to criticize, but I liked the first version better: I can’t really compare myself to a group with the same leveling speed as I have, when they’re in way higher levels and when I’ll never be able to get to them. I’d like it more if the Groups were organized either by Level (5-9, 10-19, 20-29, … ) or if you think it’s better by time/month joined or something like that.
But the speed-grouping kinda doesn’t add up for me. For example, if I change my speed from say 12 days to 8 days, I will be in Group 1 and have nobody on my level to compare myself to in that group. Whereas, the way it was before, I would’ve been able to level up faster than zkrago and put myself on number 2 in that group.

Do you get what I mean? But ultimately, as the OP, you should decide. :blush:

And may I suggest we add (:arrow_up: and day you leveled up) after the speed ? That way you can compare yourself even better and if somebody doesn’t level up for a year or so you can kick him out or something like that?

I agree, liked the old way better.

OP wasn’t the one who made that change, according to the edit history. I don’t hate the groups being divided the way it currently is, but I do see your point. I think that it could work how it is now, but there’d need to be more participation, and people from all levels joining in so that there will always be someone in your group that is close to your level.

I like this idea too.

1 Like

I see what you mean and I agree. I did not intend for the groups to be solely based on speed. Somebody ordered the groups by speed, I deleted it again.

What my intention is, is that groups are based on level first, addind speed as an idea of how they are going to progress in future. When a level 30, speed 22 compares him/herself to a level 31, speed 7, I think it‘s just going to be depressing.

So, if your speed increases from 12 to 8, you could still stay in your group for a long while- just if you‘re like 10 levels above everybody else, I think it would be time to find a new group with your level and speed, or create a new one if there is no group like that.

I realise that this only works if many people join. So, it that‘s not the case, I will go with your idea of adding level up dates.

Alternatively, we could just do groups like 10-20, fast and 10-20, slow, divide everything in a fast and a slow track.

I would say that 12 groups might be too much, but it would make the members from each group be more closer to each other I guess, so why not :slight_smile:
