All these nouns & adjectives really irk me; in fact, I'm escafating at the thought of you nounoticists & adjectivists.

ErWenn - 2006-12-18: 13:45:00
This may be a case of a definition carrying too much content. Why the imagining? Why not "To drop your best wishes on everyone, as a peace dove or pigeon"? Or maybe just "To poop on someone, as a dove or pigeon"? You can always elaborate the circumstances in the little comic (which always amuses me, by the way).

ErWenn - 2006-12-18: 13:46:00
I like the new set-up as far as it hides voting results and rankings and how it randomizes the words, but it'd be nice if I could get a list of all the words submitted. Otherwise, I keep hitting "More..." over and over again, just in case I missed one randomly.

gwenaverill - 2006-12-18: 14:51:00
Definitely. Also, I'm having a hard time finding the results now, even for words I've already voted on.

gwenaverill - 2006-12-18: 14:53:00
You know something else that might work well? Have a time window for submitting verboticisms and a different time window for voting on them. For example, we submit the definitions of this word all day today, and then new words cannot be created, and tomorrow we vote on all the entries at the same time as we create the next verboticism. It would cut down on the "early bird" syndrome in voting.
