Doodiligents

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: doo dili gents

Sentence: When Tress was having a bad hair day, everyone knew it. The men in her life learned to stay clear if her ends were split or if her mane problem was her coiffure. They were examples of doodiligents and they knew Tress would cut, tease and brush them off if they cropped her style. They knew the fall out would be permanent and the best treatment was to streak out of her way and not frost her off worse. By extension, the mane reason they liked her was that her locks were to dye for, shorn nuff. Just don't get her dander up...

Etymology: Due Diligence (Investigation and analysis a prudent entrepreneur, owner, executive, or lender does in making business decisions.) & Doo (hair-do)

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...

...good of you to be so objective about things, wordmeister :)

Jabberwocky - 2006-12-01: 13:42:00
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!
