Did you adjust the parameters in option, like "XX interval" "steps in min"? if so, how?

I found "graduating interval" in default, which is 1 day, is too small for me. 2~3 days maybe better and more efficient.

and here is another case, extracted from here.

Did you change this options? to what number? and why? how to change this parameters to be more suit for you? to make learning progress both more efficient and solid? thanks

    Of course; you must do that !

    Did you change this options? ... to what number?

    To the numbers which suit YOUR circumstances.

    .....and why?

    Because you are not an Average user; the Defaults will lead to 'Wasted reps' thus, increasing the workload.

    ... how to change these parameters to be more suitable for you?

    That is a loaded question !
    The answers depend on your circumstances - which you have not described :-) ; there should be about 10-20 of them.

    PS. That forum you are referencing is very good; have you asked the same questions there ? I would.

    Thanks Vit for reply! This is indeed a vague question and sorry!

    After thoroughly understood the meaning of these options, and refer to some cases, like this, this, this and this, in past two or three days, I guess the strategy of adjust these options is just trial and error, like you said, to suit my unique circumstances.

    I have changed this options 2 days ago and waiting to see how effective :-)
    new cards
    • Graduating interval 2 days
    • Easy interval 4 days
    • Maximum interval 720 days
    • Steps in min 10 30
    • New interval 10%
    • Minimum interval 3

    Are you going by a gut feeling ?
    I have been tracking each variable either in Anki cards or on paper

    That allows me to get reliable numbers.

    the main indicator I guess is the mature retention in answer buttons graph, if the retention after adjustment fell not particularly serious, then seems the adjustment is appropriate, so we can increase the intervals more until the rate reaches a boundary value, maybe 90%?

    I could not find more relevant reference, so do not know if there is a better strategy...
