Review Times in FAQ Wrong?


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.


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 So yeah that image is outdated.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.
