Hi, I’m going to get back into Skritter, and just renewed. Since it’s been a couple years, I went into the 2.0 site and reset my progress. My system is iOS, so I plan on using the Skritter Chinese app, based on my understanding that the 2.0 really isn’t ready for prime time, nor is it guaranteed compatible with iOS.
After three “this took too long” responses from the 2.0 site, I manually deleted all my study lists from my queue and then reset my progress for a fourth time, which seemed to work. However the 2.0 site says I have 98 items to review, and if I try to study it shows no words added. The legacy site shows the correct number of items (zero). Additionally, the 2.0 still shows 400+ items in the “All Time” section of the dashboard…which I had also expected to zero out, but did not.
I then redownloaded the iOS Skritter Chinese app, launched it, and then watched it synch 1039 items. I hit “Study” and then it went to the next screen, proceeded to tell me that there were no words and I needed to add some, and then flicked back to the main selection screen. Up popped a message saying my account had been nuked ( a good sign, I thought), but then it said it needed to sync…and again synced 1039 items…just a mere 15 seconds after the last time it synched.
The app seems to be working now, but I wanted to report its odd behavior and the 2.0 site’s odd counts.
In these cases, I would have expected the 2.0 site to: a). be able to reset with the reset button (which it couldn’t until I manually removed my lists); and b). Reset counters back to zero in all places
On the iOS app I would have expected a fresh install to not sync anything at all; and then not need to resync the same stuff less than a minute later.
EDIT: I also just noticed that any “custom definitions” I’ve added or altered in the past are still appearing. How can I reset “EVERYTHING” back to a new state? I want to start completely fresh with no “contamination” from my last attempt.
