"Ignore reviews before" is misleading

This is what tooltips say —

If set, reviews before the provided date will be ignored when optimising & evaluating FSRS parameters.

This is what actually happens —

The “ignore reviews before” filters out cards whose first review log’s date is before the setting.

I suggest two things in order of priority —

  1. In tooltips, change “reviews before” —> “cards with reviews before”. [edit: also, is the word “omitted” not better suited here than “ignored”]

  2. Change the name of the feature to something more appropriate. [I thought Ignore cards with reviews before but is it not too long?]

edit: affirmative words can also be used in a new name, e.g., Use cards introduced after.
