  • 24 December 2015Who's Reviewing? (small update)

    You can now access the Reviewing Today members list from the Review drop down (top navigation). The list shows members who are using Kanji Koohii's Spaced Repetition along with their flashcard total. This page was no longer linked to during the redesign earlier this year. Thanks to Xavier for reminding me about it!

  • 16 December 2015End of the Year 2015 Donation Run

    Has this website been valuable to you? Please consider supporting my work with a donation. It would be fantastic if we can reach ~ 600 € (EUR). I would love to upgrade my 3rd Gen iPad, which is getting kinda slow and clunky, but is still one of my favorite gadgets :)

    In previous years there have been spontaneous donation runs started by members on our forum. I'm very grateful for that. This year I decided to be a little bolder, because I need your support. I've lost two advertisers recently, and for whatever reason the website has seen a noticeable drop in traffic in the month of November.

    To be honest, my motivation is taking a blow lately. I've worked two months on upgrading the forum. I designed and implemented a completely new theme for MyBB, spent hours figuring out how to upgrade from PunBB as their script didn't work out of the box, finally made the forum mobile friendly & responsive. And the net result? It's doing OK, but I have yet to see any substantial positive change. Maybe I just need to be really patient as Google is still reporting 2000+ pages with "mobility" issues... On the up side, the daily registrations on the forum has increased so it's a good sign.

    Japanese Pod 10-Year Anniversary

    JapanesePod101 is currently running 10 Year Anniversary Countdown promotions. It is their biggest campaign of the year. Look out for DAY 9 and 10 ! (1-Year Premium for $99).

    Other ways to support

    There are other great ways to support Kanji Koohii : tweet the website, write a little something about it on your blog, tell your friends, post a link on Facebook, etc. I think that would help tremendously!

    I will be spending a few days with a friend this weekend, so I may not be able to reply to emails until just before Christmas. I hope everyone has a great time this end of the year 2015!
