So I’ve been stuck on Level 14 for a ridiculously long amount of time, due to a pileup of reviews that happened during school. I’ve already reset once from 15 down to 14, but it didn’t seem to do much. Now with the kanji and radical reboot, I have even more lessons and reviews to slog though (even though I haven’t been doing lessons at all aside from some of the rebooted radicals). I’m getting around 50% consistently during review sessions, and because of this the review queue never goes away. I’ve got more leeches than I know what to do with, and at this point, it’s clear I need to reset a few levels if I want to get back on track again.
My question is, how do I know what level to reset to? I don’t want to go back too far, but I don’t want the reset to be ineffective again, either. Now that I’m on break I have time to keep up with a reasonably sized queue…I just don’t want it consistently being at over 400. (I’ve never tried to hack my way through this entire queue because I know it would mostly come back the next day thanks to my horrid retention rate.) I was on a pretty good leveling up track before the queue pile-up happened, leveling up every few weeks with a success rate on reviews of about 70-80%, and I’d like to get back to that.
Is there a good way I can judge this? Anyone been in a similar situation before?
