You know, if everyone could vote an unlimited number of times, or if there was a ranking system, instead of a voting system, that would take care of several problems at once. It would fix the late-post deficiency as well as the too-many-good-words problem.

Discoveria - 2007-02-17: 09:33:00
Maybe no new words should be displayed until there are at least 10, so you won't be tempted to vote until there's a sizeable batch of words.

ErWenn - 2007-02-18: 10:16:00
Or even just switch the vote to yesterday's verboticisms while people are creating today's.

Discoveria - 2007-02-18: 18:37:00
That would have the added (mostly good) effect of giving me something to do on Verbotomy on Saturdays.
