Update on the Old Mnemonics

Same here, I liked having the choice between 2 mnemonics, so I could pick which one was more memorable to me.

Maybe one of the userscript wizards could take all the mnemonics off the github page and develop a plugin to readd them to WK? :wink: Though I’m not sure if there is enough demand for it.


This hit in the middle for me, and while I am a total data hoarder, I won’t miss them. Two years is a good window.

I highly doubt that such a script would be all that useful.

…let’s create it anyway! :smiley:

I have modified one of my other scripts so that it now appends the old mnemonics after the new ones in lessons, reviews, and on the item pages. I did not want to spend much effort on this (it already took way longer than intended), so the script is not that well tested. In case anyone uses it and notices bugs, I can try to fix them.

Awesome, thank you for this! I will definitely install it and try it out. From the screenshots I actually like it better than the current button swapping method for the old mnemonics, nice having it all in one place. :slight_smile:

makes me sad, but I guess life will still go on.
goodbye nailbat.

I hope everyone will be ready to kiss all of the current mnemonics goodbye in 5 years when the Council of Wokeness deems them insufficiently Woke™. After all, the most important thing about mnemonics is that absolutely no one be offended by them. That is WAY more important than, you know, being easy to remember.


This is a big disappointment to me. In most instances I have not found the new mnemonics to be nearly as memorable for me as the old ones. It also sucks that I will now need to re-learn all of the stuff I have all ready committed to memory. If I hadn’t upgraded to a lifetime membership this winter I think I would walk away from WaniKani at this point.

I will totally try this out. I do not like the new mnemonics in most instances. They just don’t stick in my brain the way the old ones do. Thank you so much for this.

Nailbat, KKK, Stalin, I will never forgive you or forget your crimes! I’m glad that I downloaded the old mnemonics a while ago!
