So then why not force people to learn radicals regardless, but make kanji available to be expedited/exempted. Same for vocab. That would also make the 3 day level up times available for all levels, though. I AM for that, but seeing as that would mean less money for tofugu (in some cases) and a very easy way to abuse the system (which would be the users loss anyway), I wouldn’t expect it to happen.
My thought is simply having a page appear before the current lessons one that essentially looks exactly like reviews. It will contain all the vocab/kanji in your next lesson and gives you can option to claim you dont know it, or enter in the answer for meaning/reading. If you get meaning/reading correct, it becomes guru1, otherwise it continues like normal. Pretty much what felix said, without radicals.
This shouldn’t cause any issues to my knowledge.
Also god damn it koichi lol. Som?!
Also @koichi I just noticed what you said about 99% of people being beginners. Yeah, I honestly can’t argue that and it even applies to me, but an approach like that will be helpful to mid level users (like myself) too. Once people hit the 30s, they will (hopefully) be reading more and picking up vocab/kanji more frequently outside of wk. For a user that reads a decent amount starting at level 25 or so, I would still expect them to be learning hundreds of items that would be later taught on wk. I speak from personal experience on this. Anyone who reads a LITTLE, will know 俺(vocab)、俺ら、俺たち、and 俺(kanji) and thats 4 items right there. 俺 was one of the more obvious ones, but you get my point.
Now, if you considered all of that and still don’t think it to be worth it, I get it. From your reply though, I thought maybe you were forgetting that people can still come across 100s if not 1000 items on here that they knew (at the time of unlock) despite starting as a beginner. Would just save us a bit of tedious work (at your expense)
