What does your Reviews Timeline look like / How many reviews do you have?

Wow, you only have 1 year of WK and you’re already lvl 49.

This is a pretty typical day’s workload and pattern. Six lessons each hour 'til 9 or 10, then hourly reviews until the end of the day.


This is the highest mine has been since starting because I fell asleep for 22 hours and had just started level 11.

Nothing special, I guess. Still rare to have 200 reviews in a day.

I’m curious… how many of you use the Highlight feature of Ultimate Timeline to count the number of reviews within a range of time?

I do all the time, I keep my timeline set to 1.25 days so I can get a good idea of what my next day will look like. But then I use the highlight feature to judge “If I skip my lunch review session due to my meeting, how many reviews will I have at my afternoon review session?” by highlighting from 11 - 4pm for example. It’s probably my favorite feature.

As a note… what do the different colors of the bars mean (specifically white / gray), they seem to occasionally flicker and change.

They go with the triangles underneath: current level and burn reviews.

Ah I see, so white overrides black if both are available. That explains why I didn’t notice. thanks

That flickering is evil…

WK is just too much fun. :slight_smile:

How do I view my review timeline? I can’t find it. :frowning:
Do I need to get to a certain level before having this feature?

It’s a script

Oh, sorry.
I skimmed the whole thread and assumed it’s a built-in feature.
I mean, the UI design just fits perfectly.
This is absolutely brilliant! Thanks for this! :smiley:


How did you set this up on mobile? Please teach me, sensei~!

Firefox on Android (no idea if it’s available for iOS) with Violentmonkey. Most scripts work after that.

I am frustrated. I am making no progress on level 5 and getting what feels like about 30 reviews a day of the words I need review on (although the actual count of reviews I get is about 70, but at least half are easy) and it is NOT NEARLY enough reviews. I have 100 items stuck in apprentice, and seeing them once every three days, getting them wrong since I haven’t seen them in forever is pretty frustrating. I wish I could see every apprentice item at least once a day. I’ve resorted trying to reviews using other apps so when I actually see them in Wanikani I can get them right. I’ve synched KaniWani to at least get some more touches on these same words. Cheating is also very attractive at this stage. How do you all get so many nice reviews to do each day? Whenever I have 10 minutes free in the work day, usually there are no reviews waiting for me. I haven’t found myself able to motivate to just do the 100 of clicks back into the original learning material to study the words. Do I have to suck it up and just do that (unstructured study)? Do you have any other advice?

Are you using the mnemonics? If you’re having trouble remembering things it might help to refamiliarise yourself with them

Yeah, you have to suck it up and just get through the first ten levels. Then, approximately 130 to 170 reviews await you each day. Have fun then :slight_smile:

Otherwise, the SRS system is build so that it tests you on long(er)-term retention of the Kanjis. I don’t know if cheating the system by reviewing them each day will help you in the long-run. It is certainly not sustainable once you hit level 10+. You would drown in reviews.

There is a script called self-study quiz where you can study, e.g., leeches (the one’s you get wrong a long), or the items you just learned. See here: [Userscript] Self-Study Quiz For leeches, you need to install the extra filter. If you have never worked with scripts, it will be useful to explore the many scripts that have been developed and learn how to work with them. They are really useful.
