    Tar Kim's guide is without a doubt the most commonly recommended resource for beginners due to the easier flow and being the first free English grammar guide to the market.

    One point of contention is that the guide has not been updated much since its publication

    The other site on the same category, though much less recognized is the imabi.net website which covers most if not all of japanese grammar with its 400+ lessons. The site is through and quite intimidating on first glance for beginners.

    There was some discussions on the two sites on the learn japanese subreddit two years ago.

    For all the starting japanese learners out there here is some app recommendations

    Oh oh there are bunch of seller groups on wechat that offer free stuffs (most in the range of 15 to 30 dollars) for good reviews in the thousands. The “buyer” pays for the goods first and after receiving the goods, the buyer sends a screenshot of the review to the seller and receives rebate via wechat wallet after confirmation.

    Basically review farms.

    Regrettably i have participated in those groups. Occasionally you’d find some good stuff but most of them are quite crap. Free stuff for a handful of words? Pretty good deal. It’s like hoarding stuff without paying. some would find this thrilling even.

    Pretty sure 15000 is on the low end.

    Are those the same group of people who organized the mascot contest back in 2017 where a bunch plagiarized designs ended up competing against two originals, one of which is from the author of Krita’s mascot? And With the original designs rejected? 1 2

    I sure hope they figured out how to not fuck up another contest.
