This afternoon’s review session was pretty rough. I guess my luck is starting to run out again. For the day as a whole, my accuracy stats were pretty good, but I didn’t get through as many reviews as normal.
Wed Jun 23 2021:
Time spent: 33m
Reviews completed: 67
Reviews remaining: 5267
Accuracy: 61.19% (41/67)
Accuracy on resurrected items: 83.33% (25/30)
Accuracy on non-resurrected items: 43.24% (16/37)
I’m going to suggest this is a losing game (if the goal is bringing the reviews back down to zero and using the SRS like it’s intended.) Your accuracy is not high enough and the re-reviews of failures aren’t prompt enough for it to work. Your most-frequent review intervals can’t work for your worst items, because there is no way for you to see that 4-hour review in the next 4 hours or even the 24 hour review in 24 hours, with thousands of other items in the way.
You could try jump-starting back to a level playing field by temporarily defeating the SRS, brute force learning all the items in short-term memory, getting the reviews done, then restarting the SRS method.
Unfortunately, I don’t think even that is going to work at an hour a day. You need to bring the pile to zero before you forget everything again, and that means you need to get it all done within a day or two. It probably means setting aside a big chunk of time for that (and then again when the waves come back, but they get smaller and smaller)
As you can see the level distribution is much more even now (apart from the obvious drop off at the high levels since I reset to level 47).
When I first started this back in May, there was a noticeable U shape to the reviews with lots at low levels and high levels, and comparatively few reviews from the mid levels because those were mostly at Enlightened when I stopped and thus would take a while to come up for review. It appears that I’ve now been doing this long enough for that to no longer matter - there’s no longer a significant dip in the distribution.
Also as you can see, my accuracy has gone way up. This isn’t just a matter of no longer having to deal with the awful 50+ items thanks to resetting. My accuracy for each individual level band has gone up as well. I think this is due to getting back into the groove of things and remembering items more and more over time after missing them before and looking up the answers. (Of course, there are a lot of leeches I still don’t remember even after missing multiple times, but on average, my accuracy is going up noticeably.)
lmfao this just motivated me to forever do all the fucking reviews regularly until I’m lvl 60 with everything burned even through sweat and blood if I have to.
If I ever find my self in this situation I’mma definetly just say fuck all of this and never touch it again.
Good luck dude.
