I have read a bit about ghost reviews - and maybe I am being stupid - but I’m still confused about them!
Are these reviews that are outside the normal SRS system? Normally an item is demoted or promoted in frequency based on correct or incorrect answers… simple enough. Are ghost reviews outside of this standard SRS system? If I turn them off do I then not get repeated grammar points?
I’ve been getting loads of them and it’s really been affecting my ability to learn. This is partly my own fault for not understanding the parameters of Bunpro and getting lots of questions incorrect. In most cases it is not the grammar point that has tripped me up but the preceding conjugation. For example, I know what ‘te kudasai’ means. What I didn’t learn is all the conjugations rules for verbs I hadn’t encountered in their Te form. Its actually helped me getting all the ghost reviews in a way, as I now know the rules for tte, te, nde, ide, ite ‘conjugation’ However, I’m almost scared to get an answer wrong now for fear that I’m going to be bombarded by constant repetition. Most of the grammar points I can now simply answer through rote - although luckily I think this has grown hand in hand with my understanding of the grammar involved rather than instead of it.
I’ve been averaging 90% correct for a while now so they have calmed down but i’m still confused by their implementation.
