Counting characters twice: simplified + traditional

Foo Choo Choon   September 21st, 2010 9:43a.m.

I've just added a bunch of basic traditional characters, now I got about 300 characters almost "for free", although I haven't added any really new characters. When you already know 说, learning 說 isn't much of a difficulty, although this is different for characters like 機,聯 or 盡.

However, I'd still like to know the actual number of separate characters I know, so I'd be in favour of drawing a line between traditional and simplified characters in some way.

Sorry--we debated this one for a long time, but it's a lot more expensive and complicated on the backend and makes many things slower. So a while back we made the decision to not offer separate progress breakdowns for simplified and traditional characters, and there's almost no changing it now.
