Hi Anki users,
I hope you’re all doing well with your studies. I recently encountered an issue with my Anki flashcards, and I’m seeking some advice and guidance on how to resolve it.
Here’s my situation:
I’ve been using Anki regularly to study, and I currently have a total of 3,091 cards in my deck.
I took a study break in August and returned to find 1,700 cards due after just 4 weeks. I was able to work through all of them during that time.
However, I’ve noticed that Anki has started to show me a large number of cards within a couple of days. For instance, not studying for just 2 days can result in 800 cards due, which is becoming overwhelming.
Another issue I’ve noticed is that sometimes the “good” button results in a 3-day interval, while the “easy” button shows a 2-day interval. I suspect this might be related to some changes I made while following a tutorial on ideal interval settings.
I’m now at a point where having 800 cards due after a weekend isn’t an effective study mode for me anymore. I’m looking for suggestions on how to address these problems and optimize my Anki study experience.
Specifically, I’d like to know:
- How can I better manage the influx of cards that seem to accumulate so quickly?
- What can I do to ensure that the “good” and “easy” buttons are assigning appropriate intervals?
- Is there a way to recalibrate my Anki settings to avoid these issues in the future?
Any advice, tips, or recommendations from fellow Anki users would be greatly appreciated. I want to get back on track with efficient and effective study sessions.
Thank you in advance for your help! Screenshots are uploaded
