(Not digging for sympathy with this, it’s just a matter of fact for my current study situation) After my father passed away last year I took a long, unexpected break from WK and completely forgot about the “vacation” functionality. Now that I’m back I have a lot of catching up to do but am faced with a new dilemma I hadn’t faced or considered previously.
I used “user synonyms” before in some instances where I had a solid definition already in mind before finding WK (20+ years of study before coming here), but now the necessity of them has become even more clear, as I’m now missing a lot of answers not because of getting the meaning incorrect but because the synonym I used wasn’t input. (This isn’t a humble brag, I’ve gotten some genuinely wrong as well)
When I used WK daily it was easy to keep WK’s preferred wording in mind and so for several words I hadn’t input any user sysnonyms for that reason, but now I’ve been gone long enough to where I retained the meaning but not WK’s exact preference.
So I guess what I’m saying is that I’ll likely have to add user synonyms a lot more often as a matter of course now… mentioning this for anyone else who plans to also take a long break, I didn’t anticipate this hurtle.
The forum seems to have changed a lot also since I left… I feel like this falls under the category of tips, so there we go, hope I did this right.
