Can you also add “extinct” as synonym to the vocab 絶?

After this update was pushed, when I go into my lessons I just get a blank screen. I’ve tried in multiple browsers with various extensions but still get the same result. Also, in the Flaming Durtles app its showing that I have no lessons even though on the wanikani webpage it’s showing that I have two lessons to complete.

Edit: Its been fixed

Ooh maybe I’ll take a passenger tonkatsu selfie while holding the menu in my arms when I go get lunch tomorrow. :ramen: Can do cat’s cradle with the ramen noodles too.

Hi Jenny! :hugs:
When reviewing 豚カツ I get the reading wrong if I type the 豚 in hiragana and the カツ in katakana. Is this due to something fuzzy on my end or the mixed kana answer is not a potential reading?

Hi Roberta! Thanks for pointing this out. This looks very much like a mistake on our (my😅) end. I just added the とんカツ reading so hopefully it will work now. Let me know if it doesn’t!

has “knives” with a typo in the meaning mnemonic, is this because the radical is knife and it’s trying to use that or is it an actual typo?

I think it might have been intentional but I’ve changed it to knives to avoid any doubt :slight_smile:

Can you add “loyal” to the vocab 忠? It currently only accepts “loyalty”.

Hi @TofuguJenny , can you add “priest” to kanji 坊? Currently it only accepts “monk”

@TofuguJenny
審判 Doesn’t mention the rendaku for 判.

I feel like rendaku after ん is a given, but I suppose they should try to keep up the standard of always mentioning it

用心棒 doesn’t mention rendaku either
