Why is there still no review summary?

Why is the review summary still not back after the ‘update’.
How come this has such a low priority?

Don’t give me technical reasons, a review summary is the basis for any learning and should have the highest priority.

The last more official update was 1 1/2 months ago. And the last actual mention of it by a staff member was this which doesn´t tell us anything at all. How much things are currently “being worked on”?
Summary Page, Kana-Vocab-Opt-Out, Bringing Review-API back and that´s just the stuff of the last 2 months or so. All of which we just have promises or “it´s being worked on”. And I´ve stopped believing either if it comes from the WK-Team as long as their isn´t more concrete info.
It should not take that long to fix this. Members of the community have found workarounds within days and the people we are paying to do this are “working on it” and “planning to implement it”.
Some of our Script-Writers are acting way more professional than the team, they reacted quickly, gave an estimate of the required work and time to fix things, posted frequent updates and interacted with users facing issues.
I´m getting more and more angry about this because I use this service every single day and I will continue to complain in the forums about those issues, because that´s the only thing that might get them to actually fix this. Keeping quiet just tells them they can get away with it.

if you use a third party app like smoudering durtles you get the summary. That’s what I am doing atm.

I´m still using Flaming Durtles since it hasn´t broken yet, but I do not want to do all of my reviews on mobile. That just takes way too long. And I also do a lot of reviews at work where I can´t even use scripts (the full painful Vanilla-Experience).

If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, you can even ping the Mods, but I’m not sure if you’re going to get a concrete answer.

I guess it´s worth a try. Because currently it feels like I´m screaming at a wall.
I´m willing to give them the benefit of the doubt and say they may just have forgotten to give us another update and didn´t realize how long it´s been…
@Mods Is there anything that you can tell us about the current state of the summary page? And preferably also about Kana-Vocab-Opt-Out? Maybe even Review-APIs?

I use the alternating setting in Flaming Durtles, this way if I keep mashing the play button I can easily contrast and compare them.

“There’s a lot of noise with this one,” wrote Koichi. “Among the noisiest we’ve seen. Please know that our teams are on it, and like all blowups, this one will pass as well.”

WaniKani API pricing update?

I hope they won’t block the porn at least… I need to be able to review 尻 and 金玉…

I totally agree. It feels like wanikani is dead in terms of updates. Bunpro just released an update that shows exactly that at the end and it’s brilliant! Wanikani could easily copy this format ffs.

Yeah I’ve been using Bunpro and Wanikani side by side since the start and the comparison is not kind to WK. While Bunpro is younger and still pretty clunky, it’s improved massively over the past 6 months or so, both on the website and the native smartphone app, both in content and presentation.

Meanwhile WK broke my scripts, forced me to study テレビ, removed the review summary, told me I was fat and removed the review stats.

I, too, am missing the review summary.

I feel bad repeating myself in all these threads, but… what else can I do? I already emailed them…

What are the chances we’re not getting this update?

And, for us lifetime users, what can we do in protest? :person_shrugging:

Review bomb? It sucks, I really like the service but I’m getting more and more frustrated with the direction it’s going in.
