Currently for an item to progress from apprentice -> burned you must correctly answer the meaning+reading of it 8 consecutive times at varying minimum time intervals.
The intervals are: 4h, 8h, 24h, 3d (guru), 1w, 2w (master), 1m (enlightened), 4m (burned)
This system works OK if you are able to consistently do your reviews but isn’t as efficient and flexible to people who aren’t able to complete their reviews on a regular basis. I just wanted to know if it’s possible + if you think it’s a good idea if the review items were to account the last time an item has been reviewed in order to place it in the correct level of comprehension based on the time between reviews.
An extreme example to showcase this is, say you unlocked the vocab “一” and have memorized its meaning and reading. If you take a break never doing a single review of ”一” and come back and review it after learning it exactly 5 months 3 weeks 4 days and 12 hours ago (the minimum amount of time to get and item burned) and get it right, with the current system it will only go to Apprentice 2 but what I’m suggesting is that I think it should go straight to burned as you’ve clearly shown you’ve memorized the meaning of the word and require no aid from the SRS system.
A more realistic example that showcases the benefit of this system would be, if you unlocked the vocab “二” at 9am and you were really busy all day and had no time for reviews until you got home and you then reviewed it for the first time at 9pm, with the current system if you got it right, it would also only go to Apprentice 2 and the next review will be held 8h later, but if you take into account the last time this vocab was seen 12 hours ago (4h + 8h) I think it should go straight to Apprentice 3 and the next review will be held 24h later.
