On top of that, I said that I sometimes do--and it's usually only for vocab. I also tend to have some excuse that's at least partially valid (e.g., I'm tired, I knew that; I would have gotten that if I thought a little more--next time I will; etc,.) One big incentive to use it this way is to lower my apprentice count because I use it to gauge how many lessons to take. If I have 100-120 apprentice, I don't want to take any more lessons. It also lessens the short-term review burden.HigginsHere said...
Sometimes I think I over-use this button and that in itself isn't a big problem, but I wouldn't want things I didn't quite deserve to guru to get into master and beyond. I know that sometimes I'll be like, *wrong* "Pft, I knew that," *ignore.* I'd do this more so to get something to guru, but I don't really trust myself past that, especially since it doesn't explicitly tell you which SRS level the item is about to go to. Any ideas?
Honestly, this sounds a lot like a self-inflicted problem. What's even the point of getting items to guru if it's not by learning them? Maybe don't use it as an eraser of mistakes and only use it for legitimate accidents -- like when your finger slips and hits enter in the middle of typing or when a cat jumps on the keyboard, things like that.
Anyway, what I'm looking for is more of a safety net for when I DO make those wrong calls, where I didn't actually know it and was cheating myself. When I think "crap, I knew that!" I usually do, I just was too quick or something. If this isn't possible to achieve or is too difficult, so be it. But it would make my life easier. If it's easy and possible, yay.
