- Kanji Poster survey!6 December 2013
- The Kanji Poster is back! Max Hodges of White Rabbit Japan, the new owner / seller of Kanji Poster, is looking for feedback and ideas to improve the poster! Please check out the Kanji Poster survey thread in the forum if you'd like to share feedback and/or ideas for an updated kanji poster. Thanks!
Those of you who have been here for some time will remember Paddy Duddy's Kanji Poster. It was a great product for Reviewing the Kanji audience because it displayed the kanji in the "Heisig" sequence, just like the Remembering the Kanji books. Many thanks to Paddy who sponsored this site/forum all the way from early 2008 up to July this year!
- New "favourite" stories section on Study page1 October 2013
- When you click the star button next to a story (mnemonic) it will now move up to a separate section called "Favourites". Voted stories now always appear at the top of the list in this new section.
With this change a vote now acts as a kind of bookmark. It tells other users you found this story helpful, while at the same time makes the story easier to find when you come back to the study page.
This feature was suggested by shmuel in the feedback forum.
- If you had trouble registering3 September 2013
- Lately there were problems with the registration page. If you were not able to sign up recently due to a "Connection timeout" error message please try again.
I have removed/relaxed some unnecessary checks on account creation that caused issues. They were probably excessive, seeing as 99.99% of spam bots don't ever bother to answer the question on the sign up form.

- Preliminary support for 6th edition, new lessons page?17 June 2013
- Update: The RTK 6th Edition Support development is put on hold indefinitely, due to lack of feedback on this feature. I posted a prototype for a new lessons page on the forum, hoping that would generate some ideas.
RTK 6th Edition Users: All the 6th edition characters are available in the Study pages and the keywords are mostly identical, however the frame numbers (the index) is different. To add flashcards with the 6th edition index, have a look at the 6th Edition Frame Number Converter kindly shared by gomtuu on the forums.
The most efficient way to remember the meaning and writing of Japanese characters.
