Review Times in FAQ Wrong?


#1

So on the WaniKani FAQ, it shows the chart of the SRS system, starting with 4 hours, then 8 hours, then a day, etc. But after learning a set of radicals, I only had to wait an hour to review them the first time, and then 4 hours. Since the minimum is 4x in a row correct to get something to Guru, is it now 1 hour + 4 hours+ 8 hours+ 1 day? Because the FAQ would lead me to believe it’s supposed to be 4 hours + 8 hours + 1 day + 3 days.

EDIT: The chart is in the WaniKani guide, not FAQ. Also, I’ve been a member since 2015, I just reset my account because I had been gone for so long I forgot a lot. So I know how things worked back then, but I don’t know if it’s changed.

It’s just expedited for the first two levels. Then it follows the intervals in the FAQ.


#3

BTW in the image 3d interval should be 2d. It was reduced sometime time earlier. So yeah that image is outdated.

Ok great, thanks guys, that’s what I wanted to know :slight_smile:

It is indeed wrong, this is how the fastest SRS progress looks now.
