At this time, it is not possible to add shared decks directly to your AnkiWeb account - they need to be added from the desktop then synchronized to AnkiWeb.
I made changes however, agreeing 100% with the commenter on 10/7/2019.
1. The "optimized" order makes no sense. The whole purpose of the core deck is the frequency order. I didn't do any prior kanji studying except for basic knowledge of radicals, and with the frequency order, I still found it easy to pick up kanji as I went.
2. The pictures are of questionable quality, particularly the more sexualized ones.
3. Recognition over production. Recognition is easier which builds momentum; is typically more useful in practice (depending on your use cases); provides more ambiguity for interpreting foreign words, rather than always associating an English meaning to just one foreign word; and favored for JLPT.
I hated the "optimized" ordering, since I think learning by frequency is the whole point of doing core2k/6k in the first place... I don't want to learn multiple-kanji words for office work before I learn how to say simple things like wind or sea or sky, you know? Also, I did Heisig before, so I don't really need to order them by kanji to ease me in, I just want to learn the most common words first.
Anyway, I found that these were really useless as production cards, because I started associating the words with the pictures, and very quickly there were too many possible Japanese answers for the English input, and it's hard to separate them by example sentence because the sentences often don't give you enough information.
I decided that since my goal is to get reading as soon as possible, I should turn these into recognition cards.
So TL;DR in my experience after a few months with these decks, this is the best way of using them if your goal is to read ASAP:
1. Merge the decks and sort by Core Index.
2. Take out all the pictures. You want to associate words with their definitions, not with pictures of girls looking at you suggestively.
3. Set the Kanji + example sentence + part of speech to be on the front, and pronunciation / English definition to be on the back.
After doing these three things, the decks have been a godsend for me, and recognizing words has become the strongest part of my Japanese study, as well as the easiest to learn.
If this wasn't free I would pay for it!
Especially example sentence and audio.
