Could “ideal” be added to the warning or block list for 思想? I swear I make this mistake every time this word reaches Master and I have to manually mark it wrong.

I’m only level 5 so only 1 of the updates apply to me but I don’t remember 口にする ment “to drive” also? Or is this why it says “moved to block list”?

Sorry I might just be too bad at Japanese still or I don’t understand what the updates really say :sweat_smile:

Yes, the block list is the list of answers that are not accepted.

Done! Added to the block list :blush:

I know WK makes a meaning distinction between radicals and kanji when they use the same character, i.e. 又 radical being stool, whereas the same kanji means ‘again’. However when 衣 is taught as clothes, in both radical, kanji and vocab form, this seems strange.

Can I ask to what the reasoning was behind this?

Hello Tooko-san,

Unlike Kanji, which can often have multiple meanings, radicals typically have a single designated “name” on WaniKani. While users can add their preferred names to the user synonym, we currently do not list multiple meanings for a radical. This may change in the future, but at present, this is our standard practice. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and greatly appreciate your understanding. :bowing_woman:t2:

I hope it does change. We’re all here to learn kanji and real Japanese, not WaniKani mnemonics. It should be allowed, not warned against.
