It never ceases to amaze me how many people on these forums care more about finishing WaniKani than actually learning Japanese.
Fun fact: There's a ton of words in Wanikani that are not only mostly useless (literally almost never used), but some that are detrimental because Wanikani provides 0 actual context for how these words actually are used in Japan (context sentences don't count, they are bv and large useless nonsense)
Anecdote of something mostly useless: 全日本
; I used this with plenty of people until someone laughed in my face and said that only sports announcers use that word (I'm hyperbolizing a tad, mind you).
Example of something detrimental: お前
; Here's Wanikani's description:"But it's done in a sarcastic way, so this word means you. That's right, plain old "you." This "you" is usually used casually, between men."
Taking this at face value is an incredibly
amazing way to get yourself kicked out of bars (as one guy from Wanikani found out) or just generally look like an
You know what never ceases to amaze me
? That people think doing Wanikani is learning Japanese. It's not. It's learning kanji. And even then, with all the silly nonsense radicals, sometimes it's barely even that. We're not learning Japanese. We're accumulating kanji. So chill out and let people learn how they want. Someone at Level 60 who found a way to skip a hundred items is a lot better off than the guy at level 12 who quit cause the experience annoyed him.
Onto the topic though:
I like this idea. There's some dumb words I'm sick of seeing. The threshold would have to be really high though because it would definitely be pretty tempting. And it would have to be automatic, or else it might be too ease to click it cause you're frustrated like the "wrong button correct" thing. I'd probably use it for those god awful words that have somehow stuck around with me since like level 2.
