Pearls Before Swine
I remember one time this person said she was censoring me because I "stacked words on top of other words." Not really sure what she meant but my point is that people censor for crazy reasons!
Oh yeah. there was another person who censored everybody who beat her.
I kind of agree with you about making censoring people invisible. This site used to at least show whether you had censored someone. Back then I would censor people who censored me (for no apparent reason) so I could see the censor mark and not waste my time clicking on their games!
@jrp32 I prefer to play real people who chat the most, but second to them I like to play real, silent people because the robots on lex are either too hard or too easy and at least in the past were almost non-strategic.
It surprises me how few people on here are interested in words.
@lefttoeshuffle Wow, I didn't know admin did that. What did you say in the lobby? And having seen some of your drivel about things like covid vaccination, all I have to say is: Well done Admin!
Can anyone confirm that the $1.99 version of the app doesn't (or perhaps does) have the thermometer? Putting it in the website version without putting it in the app was a dubious move, especially if it was anticipated that the thermometer would never be in the app. I can rightfully knock myself for not telling my app-playing opponent about it, but on the other hand our longstanding game of I don't know how many years may be over when I do – unless she wants to continue playing at a gross disadvantage and regularly losing. I won't be switching to a phone, and I doubt she'll want to switch to a laptop.
Roy, you might want to specify IOS or Android. It would not surprise me if the two apps are very different.
@lefttoeshuffle What a stupid idea. How about you have some self control and not look at the eyeball if it bothers you so much? Some of us ARE interested in observers.
@dan-mitchell said in Move two word list:
@zaph Good point. There's a huge chunk of unused space underneath that tools tab graph to move it to.
The definitions themselves are all over the place though. It doesn't always prioritize the most common or logical definitions. If it's a word with multiple meanings, it will often bring up the most obscure definition available and ignore everything else.
Yes, I agree that the definitions are often lacking, but once in a while I find one very interesting!
(I finally remembered a recent one: "gul: a geometric, usually octagonal, design used in Turkoman carpets")
This is a minor issue, but I would appreciate it if you moved the two word list. How about moving it from the dictionary tab
to the tools tab?
At the moment, I often can't see multiple word definitions because the two word list is now taking up lots of space. Here's a screenshot:
There should have been another definition below zeta.
@dan-mitchell Personally I don't really care that much, but I think that the people in the serious end of the chess and scrabble worlds look at it this way: a stronger player is expected to win, so if there is a tie game between widely different rated people, the lower rater gets points, etc.
@roymccoy Hi Roy, there already is a shortcut to remove tiles placed on the board: hit escape.
As for suggestion two, I rarely want to look up words that way, so I don't care.
You might want to try https://www.onelook.com/ it's a lot more 'complete' than Lexulous's dictionary.
@vickibma Can't you just ignore the play rater thing and play as usual? BTW I seriously doubt that many other players want to have to agree to such a weird, minor setting before a game... And people on this site have always fished for words before playing-- they just looked at how many points a possible play would be.
@dan-mitchell Thanks, Dan. And I agree, I find it a bit disconcerting having frequent observers too. I know over on that "other" scrabble site it's possible to block observers, so people don't help their strategy by using a 2nd account to see what tiles you have.
This is rather a minor bug, but I have noticed that sometimes it would appear that the same person is observing my games repeatedly and for many minutes. (And subsequent games too.) I finally realized that it was a bug and not some stalker when an observer either was playing their own game or had logged off but was still listed as observing in my next game(s).
Anyway, I'm sure this bug feeds some people's paranoia and would be better fixed!
@roymccoy Oh come on, we could use a little more unintended humor, Roy!
Surely you were going to suggest something like how the URL is not symmetrical and thus aesthetically displeasing?
LOL & No hard feelings
BTW Actually I do agree with you that the arrow shouldn't disappear. I hadn't noticed it until you brought it up, but I imagine it's a problem for slow players.
@lolamoth Actually, "fag" is valid, in the US dictionary at least.
I have spoken to some Jewish people on here about the 'jew' issue, and most of them said if they have the letters they will play 'jew'.
What is more amazing to me is that the N-word is in the US dictionary!
