First of all I want to say "thank you" for this addon. To this day I find it absolutely inexplicable that this addon is still not an optional function in Anki. I am really depended on this addon and because of that I am delaying my Anki update for months now, even though its the only addon in my list which still does not support the new version (I even had to shutdown other addons which dont support the older versions anymore). I guess since August I was eagerly waiting for the development cycle to finally start just to see now that it got ceased.
Dont worry I wont leave an thumbs down here since you seem to react a little bit tensed to these kind of methods (but hate the game, not the player). I know that you have a lot of addons and I do now that you are providing all this stuff for free but I just want to inform you that some people here are really depended on this addon and after hours of searching online I still cannot find a proper alternative to this and therefore still have to postpone the update :/

Sad to see the series go

I'm currently incrementally writing a 420 page novel on why the Hoochie series add-ons should be ported to Anki 2.1.35+. I do not support terrorism. I would be willing to become your minion. I will await future instructions.

(Plz port)

Love this add-on, its especially useful for medical school when you're adding hundreds of cards. I hope the update for 2.1.35 comes soon, Anki forced me to update and I lose the add-on.
on 1603230384
Its awesome. Thanks a lot
on 1601594268
Man you make a lot of good addons. I guess I can forgive you for rickrolling me
on 1600197389
Phenomenal add-on and lifesaver for medical students- would love to upgrade my anki... How serious were you about your requisite tribute of 3 pages to get an off-cycle update? Is it three pages per add-on? Are we talking APA? Because I'm about ready to churn out some pages... This add-on is the real deal.
Comment from author
For other addons, it certainly wouldn't hurt if you try. Your odds of an update would increase drastically. ;-)

I'm afraid the next version of Anki will have the scheduler codes moved to Rush, so these types of addons wouldn't be possible after 2.1.33. It's still tentative, so we'll see how things develop.

Amazing addon, helps you interleave material thus making the learning more effective
on 1598884892
It is not compatible with version 2.1.33 on Mac.
And I can’t find the old version 2.1.23 to install.
Could someone help me to find old version 2.1.23?

I'm afraid you missed the window.
Just wait for the next dev cycle.

I truly appreciate, Thank you! Your add-ons are lifesavers. Looking forward for use it with 2.1.30!

Edit after answer: I look forward for update but I am not trying to flatter to speed up the update. As I said I truly apprecite your work and I used this add-on (or other Hoocies) a lot. Update or not I am still gratefull. Thanks!
Comment from author before post was edited
Nope. Flattery won't work either. This will take me two weekends to update the unit tests and make sure everything runs well. Then, it should only be fair that I get something in return for it. And the price I demand is a three page essay. Let me see what Anki has done for you guys so far with your beefed up vocabulary through daily drilling and repetition.
on 1597015103
It isn't working on 2.1.30! HELP!
Comment from author
The current supported version is 2.1.23 LTS. I can't give in to terrorist demands. But if you write me a three page essay explaining how this addon has been useful to you, I'll update it. Otherwise, respect the development cycle.

Just what I was looking for, thank you!

Exactly what I needed! Otherwise, I was only learning the first subdeck.

Thank you

super useful, thanks for developing this!

Best series of add-ons I've ever used. The different types of randomization truly force you to remember information rather than rely on contextual data. I was getting so sick of seeing the same cards in a row every day, but I so love not knowing what to expect, because this family of addons can randomize to your specific wants.
on 1564011073
The Hoochie family is really awesome! Thanks
on 1563007477
Yes. Another great add-on.
on 1554637295
I couldn't live without this add-on. I have so many unprocessed cards in sub-decks that Anki would typically pull too many from one source, neglecting all the other cool stuff I want to learn. This makes it so that all my subjects have an equal chance of gaining my attention.
on 1553514560
the hoochie add-ons are my favorite add-ons.

You have no idea how you expected an addon like that.
