Can the next rep date for a card be reset?   I've been away from my Japanese for a while and in browsing cards many of the next rep dates are years away.  I want to change some of them to a closer date.   Otherwise, I think I can just delete the old card and create a new card as a new card and won't that start a new (closer) rep date?

This isn't really advised - generally it's better to have the mindset of "the algorithm knows better" - the algorithm behind Mnemosyne is well researched and evidence based.

You can reset the dates for cards, not through Mnemosyne, but by modifying the card database using SQLite - though this is incredibly dangerous and may result in years of progress being lost. Also, this method requires a fair bit of technical fluency, at the very least, you ought to have used some SQLite - there isn't really any other way as far as I know.

Of course, if you're certain that you want to reset the dates, I could help, but I'd have to know how technically savvy you are before.

If you really want to reset some cards, export them to the *.cards format, delete them, and reimport.

Not the least tech-savvy.  And I do have lots of cards.  So, on the ones I can tell I need sooner than several years! I'll just add them in as a new card.
Thanks.

But the dates are years away because you probably know those cards quite well already.
I think people tend to worry that they'll forget the cards because the next review date is unrealistic, but if there's a ton of cards then resetting them all is probably just creating extra "fake work" that slows progress on learning new stuff.
