Your worst typos WaniKani has accepted

I must have read this wrong the very first lesson and have been entering it ‘correctly’ wrong the entire time. I just had it pop up again today and thought, ‘huh, it’s funny how “no ego” means to be selfish…’. Maybe one for the block list @RachelG !

Ooh, yes! That one should be on the block list - thanks :+1:

I’m pretty sure I just answered 魚雷 with “tornado” and it got accepted @Mods - which is a bit terrible because “tornado” appears in the same level as well.
(Probably the inverse also holds true…)

While it was marked as a mistake and it was mistake on my part, I read 大切 as だいきり.

Something tells me I have weekend on my mind :tropical_drink:

Also, I just love that @Mods are hanging around in this thread and help out/add stuff continously so Wanikani gets better for everyone :heart:

(Though I would love if you could add some y/z tolerance for us folks using a QWERTZ keyboard or at least add it as an option if possible? Thank you kindly)

There’s already typo tolerance built-in to WK’s meaning. Reading will always provide no tolerance, because you have to learn to type Japanese correctly :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

試験(しけん) and 体験(たいけん) are taught in the same level so this should probably be blocked @Mods

Hey Beyond_Sleepy! Indeed, I am also getting ‘experience’ as a correct answer for 試験. We will get this added to the block list! Thanks for that ping!

Corrosion (腐食) is in the same level. My english is not good enough to know whether it should be accepted.

腐食 = metal corroding, sort of thing.

I accidentally misread 気持ち悪い and wrote “good feeling” for it, which is obviously wrong. “good feeling(s)” should probably be blacklisted. @Mods

Thanks for the heads up, I’ll notify the team so they can add it to the block list.

Not sure if this should be allowed or not @Mods
