[Feature Idea] Want different answer

I am occasionally annoyed by questions in the deck that have multiple valid answers, like 止める・泊める, and it is a burden to have the maintainer add clues there.

Instead of just ignoring it every time, how about:

  • similar to synonyms, add an entry field in the notes with a list of items that make the entry box shake. Maybe with a field for a personal hint a la “looking for the one related to movement” or something. In the best case the maker of the deck could provide an initial list and get feedback.

  • Or, add a “frontside pen icon” you can move around that can show a hint, or attach it to the footer, …? In that way it can stay independent of the layout.

Hmm, as long as the layout creator is able to provide a field for wrong matches, it wouldn’t be too difficult to implement this as a default behavior for the inputs.

E.g. just having a {{wrong:fieldX}} in the layout where fieldX has a value like wrong1,wrong2,wrong3 could be parsed as the wrong answers. Where entering either of those values would cause the input to shake and display a small tooltip with “Not that one” or something similar.

I see, then the deck author just has to enable the feature in the layout, and everyone can use the usual feedback mechanism. I think the tooltip could also be read from a field instead of a generic message, there may be three or more conflicts :slight_smile:

But in that case the only way to add custom blocked terms is by asking the author to change fieldX, right?

It would also be possible to add additional wrong answers for you personally, working exactly the same as personal synonyms do right now. Additional to the above mentioned system.

I am a bit worried about people not sending in suggestions for wrong answers anymore once a personal system is in place though…

It could list the wrong answers at the hint as well, having a personal message is also possible but would require a bit more work.

I do think it is a really nice feature to have in general by the way, looking forward to implementing it :smile:

Thanks, looking forward to using it :wink:

I was re-trying Bunpro today, and a huge improvement was the better handling of expected inputs. I never knew what to put when I first tried it (like “was it それ or これ …”), those “fill in the missing parts” kind of questions are hard to handle.
