This leaderboard is ranked according to current level, then speed, then alphabetically. But primarily try to keep the levels ranked, and I’ll be happy ^^

I forgot to mention it to you before, but only “regular” users (used wanikani forums for 50+ days, meet the views, posts, and likes requirements, etc) can make wikis so I added one above!
(as for the format, you can just copy the one from olympians, which I copied from race to the cake :woman_shrugging:)

Aha! Thank you so much! I really appreciate it.

@chaswrig and @bejabo, welcome! Looking forward to leveling with you!

This seems interesting! I might go for N2 for the jlpt 2020, so I would like to get to sometime next year. According to my stats I’m ptojected to be all burned by October next year, so I’ll make that my goal.

So for me I should enter time spent on level 35? That is what I did. Let me know if I should change it!

@FennelFox Thank you for starting this thread! I’m on the Olympians leaderboard as well, and while I’d love to meet that goal, Dec 2020 gives me some much appreciated cushion!

@pensei Thanks for making the wiki/leaderboard!

Nice goal.
It will keep me going after I attempt N2 in July next year.

SO I’ve added myself.
Let’s do this!

Hi!
I just start using WaniKani and this looks like an extra motivation. Don’t know if I make it from level 2 but I do my best. Thank you.

I’ve taken a look at my estimates from the statistics website.
At my current average of 12 days, 16 hours (which is slower than I would like, because I’ve spend a lot of time on level 3 due to not having money to pay yet and 4 because school holiday for the kid = less time for me) I would be at level 60 in April 2021. Which means I would not make it. All burned would be September.

At the fastest, (which seems to be an average of 3 days, which is impossible right?) I would be at 60 in April 2020, which is a whole year earlier and to be honest, sounds undo-able for me. (school holidays are still going to be a thing)
All burned in September again, just a year sooner.
(putting the average on 6 days actually makes it not that much longer)

My current pace seems to average around 8 days, but I can see already, that I’ll probably not be able to keep that up for all the levels. Thus I have searched what would get me to 60 on December 1st. This would be 10 days and 12 hours approximately. Now that actually seems manageable.

On a different note, that hypothetical number would also get me 95% of N2 level kanji before July. Which makes it another good reason to stay at or around 10 days a level.

This is perfect! I will hit right at 60 or just a little sooner if things go well. Great idea using JPLT as motivation. I think it would be awesome if we could pass N2.

As a small note, there is a new wk stats site with some improvements over the original. ^^

https://www.wkstats.com:10001

It uses API v2.

I might go for the N3 since I’m not so confident with my grammar, but we’ll see how things go with Uni and work! ╭( ・ㅂ・)و

Hello, I would like to join and have edited myself into the post! I look forward to all of us encouraging each other and reaching our goals! Let’s do it!

Hey all. Olympics isn’t really my thing, but I do plan on taking the JLPT… eventually… :sweat_smile: So, as soon as my exams are finished (next wednesday) I’ll start doing lessons again and see if I can’t do this! If I have 11 day levels I can finish October. 12 day levels, December 6th. So it looks like it’s doable for me without too crazy a pace, and that’s also quite motivating.

The order or ranking in that leader-board is confusing me. Is it supposed to be in order of speed or level? Edit: @GrumpyPanda Thanks! xD

I think so, same here.

Loving the goal! Aiming for the JLPT alongside a WK level is probably the healthiest for your Japanese. Also, it’s always fun to meet WaniKani’ans at the JLPT locations ! °~°

Yes, that’s right! Your average speed won’t change much, so it’s more motivating to put the speed you spent on your last level.

Ah so I should change it every time I level up?
