I must say I'm more towards Tobberoth's way of thinking... but then again I really do like what iKnow has set up there. Maybe I'll cross reference all the sentences and if I happen to like the KO sentence more, I'll go ahead and use that one instead.
But anyway, keep up the good work! I'd love to help, but as I'm still in the middle of RtK (1220 woo!) I have a lot of work to do in that plus other stuff that needs to be studied before I can get around to KO and iKnow. Sorry!
(and thanks for the reply Nuke!)
Working on 121-135 as we speak.

Cool idea-KO just keep getting better and better.
I have a suggestion-why dont you edit the first page of this thread with 1) list of who is doing what and 2) links, and then update as it develops there, so that people can quickly find the info they are looking for.....
Another idea is to send all files to say, NUKEMARINE and have him upload it all to iknow, that way in the future all the files are in one place, and you dont have to jump around to find what you want....
(i didnt notice he was updating it)
Hey-how do you add sentences after typing up a list in iknow? I just tried it out with some kanji from book two, made a list, now how to add sentences?
you click on the word and it will pop up and say "add sentence" click on that and then check under "popular" to find a good sentence from cerego and if you can't find one check under "search" for cerego sentences ... i would be cautious about adding noncerego sentences though... make sure to match the reading with the sentence!! the sentence locater searches by kanji not by readings!!!
I'll do 581-595 from book two...
Im running into the problem of either no sentences or sentence that is way to long. Even the sentence that says created by cerego seams to be user sentences at times.
How will we handle the problem of no sentence example?
Zazen, can you make it 586-600? Reason being, we're going off multiples of 3 pages (or 15 kanji).
Tobberoth, Alyks, sorry about starting the discussion on the merits of i+1 for vocabulary and sentences. Let's table it for now on this thread.
I'm suprised at how fast it's getting done.
For problems with no sentences, or sentences used from iKnows English lessons (Cerego's long Japanese sentences with no audio), I say if you add a sentence, make sure there's audio. Otherwise, just leave the word on the list without the sentence.
What we can do later during the "smoothing" process is upload a good sentence (maybe from KO, as it'll be on a limited basis), and even audio from a TTS or friendly native reading. iKnow now allows you to record to the sentence if I recall correctly.
Working on 46-60 and 106-120. Come on guys let's keep this thing rolling!
i'll help some more next week probably, i'm working this weekend...
i fully intended to complete this list sometime in the future even if no one else bothered to help... it would be nice to get everything done with the collaboration though.. right now it's just hard for me to help as much because i am working through RtK again and making lists for the RtK keywords at the same time...i'll try to pitch in a helping hand every now and then though as i am working through it...

you can select the placement of the word in the same place where you select to add the sentence i think....
I'll do 196 - 210, 211 - 225 and 226 - 240.
