What do you want now? (Request extensions here)

btw, where did that plugin that replaces text in normal websites with learned kanji go?  I never bookmarked it and now I can’t find it.  If someone could give me the sauce that would be awesome

I think It’d be cool to have a list of all the vocabulary in lists of what they are (Nouns, Verbs, Adjectives, Etc.), That lets you know how many of each type of word there are. I know when I study, I very frequently look at specifically Verbs or Adjectives when studying Grammar, And using Wanikani to know what verbs and adjectives I should know would be (I think) extremely useful and pretty cool.

Do you mean Wanikanify for Chrome? https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/wanikanify/dbnpfdbkecfgaffopefhalliecehhkhj

I was going to make these extensions, but I don’t seem to have any time, so I hope you could do some of these:

  • I’d like the option to mark an answer as wrong (like the opposite of WK override)
  • If a reading is misspelled but still accepted, give the user a chance to correct it instead of saying that it is slightly off
  • Have kanji and vocab appear in random fonts and font sizes, so the user will be able to recognize kanji in all shapes and sizes
  • I also like the previously mentioned accent number and kun or on marks

 I have commented on this before.

I looked into allowing users to ignore correct answers, but there's a problem with that. As soon as you answer correctly to both the meaning and reading, the WK server is immediately contacted. This means that ignoring the answer is no longer possible if you're answering the second (as in, you're answering the meaning but have already answered the reading or vice-versa).

It is possible to edit the Wanikani script in order to make it wait until you press enter a second time to skip to the next question instead of auto-submitting, but that'd require a lot of work and would make the script pretty easy to break with the simplest Wanikani update, so it'd require a ton of work to get working at first, and a ton of maintenance later.

I don't think that is an important enough feature to justify all that work and make the script easier to break.
Also, with the latest WaniKani update, it would require disabling level-up/down indicators to make this work. It's simply not worth it.
If someone still wants to do it, though, be my guest :)

... that's actually not a bad idea. Sometimes I accidentally "override" a false answer and feel guilty afterwards (yeah, "accidentally". Bad habits die hard w)

  • If a reading is misspelled but still accepted, give the user a chance to correct it instead of saying that it is slightly off
Hmm, I haven't had many instances where misspelling the meaning of a kanji/vocab would make me feel like I "cheated" my way through the system.

  • Have kanji and vocab appear in random fonts and font sizes, so the user will be able to recognize kanji in all shapes and sizes
Not gonna lie: This one would drive me crazy.

  • I also like the previously mentioned accent number and kun or on marks
Oh, definitely this one.

 I'm actually planning to update the Override script soon (this week if I have time) to allow someone to "unignore" an answer (before they press Enter, of course) for that reason (also, I have accidentally pressed '~' in the past). Read my post right before yours for the reason why my script doesn't support ignoring a *correct* answer, though.

Been thinking about this one. But rather than random, it would be nice to have the current size + a common reading size to familiarize with the reading size.

I’d like the Wanikanify Chrome app to show you the reading as well as the meaning. This script replaces English words in a webpage with the equivalent vocab word from Wanikani. When you hover over the kanji you can see the meaning of the original English word but you can’t see the reading. If you coud see both you could use this script to check that you know both the reading and the meaning of kanji vocab.

 Alright, seems pretty useful.

I have a request. Can you make it that kanji in the item info/lessons/reviews etc. get shown in the same order that they appear in the vocab?
For example these 2 should switch places. This is really irritating sometimes.

 Pretty sure this would be kinda useful until they decide to finally add the 30+ levels of audio missing

I would like an extension that yanks audio from somewhere in a sentence and alone. But I want the sentence to be from somewhere NOT tatoeba or the other horrible corpus. Somewhere that Japanese wrote the sentences.

I do understand this is a tall order but the reasoning comes from a guy by the name of Idahosa.

Also I support the pitch accent thing.

If you could somehow pull example sentences and phrases from Eijiro/ALC that’d be great, but those also tend to be an order of magnitude more complicated than the ones from Tatoeba/Tanaka Corpus…

Daijiten’s sentences are good too, but those definitely aren’t freely available.  Honestly, while they’re not perfect, Tatoeba’s sentence database is the best available compromise among availability, accuracy, applicability and price.

Ooo good idea! Yes this.
Also, I know you said it'd be difficult or something like that, but for your Lesson order extension, please reorder everything and not have the need to refresh in order to reorder only 4 items. Pleeaaase!

Sounds like what we need is a WaniKani shell that handles the API calls e.t.c. that you can attach the different functionality to. 

This was brought up in another thread, but a “wrap it up” button would be great.  So if you get a reading wrong, exit out of the session, come back in, remember the right reading and know the correct meaning, it still gets downgraded.

Now that we have that handy-dandy notes feature, what do you all think about adding notes to the dashboard right next to Vocab, Kanji, Radicals, Levels in it’s own little circle/button/thing?

I think that it would be cool to have all your notes organized in one space.

Some people write a note for each and every item, but if you are like me and write notes for problem items, than I think that it would greatly benefit studying and reviewing said problem items if they were all organized in one place.

At the very least, it would be nice to have a notes list under the Lattice or mark each Radical, Kanji, Vocab in the Lattice with something indicating that that item has a note.

Just a little red ticker/flag like they have for “NEW” items that indicates that an item has a note would be good enough for me.
