CHANGES TO VOTING AND SCORING
Due to popular demand we are changing the voting and scoring rules. Here is how the new setup works:
1. Voting: Each player gets two "plus" Votes (Against votes have been eliminated.)
2. Creativity Points: You get 4 points for creating a word, 4 points for creating a sentence, plus 1 point each for the pronunciation and etymology.
3. Voting Points: Each vote counts for 3 points
NOTE 1: Let us know what you think about this...
NOTE 2: We have made the changes but it may have unintended consequences. Let us know if anything screws up...

I like it alot - sometimes the sentences are better than the words. This will encourage all of us with fragile egos

wordmeister - 2006-12-01: 13:54:00
Check out the revised player standing -- chris and Jabberwocky are neck and neck. This could get vicious! Oh wait... They removed the negative voting. Dang!
