By popular request! A definition which suggests a noun as the solution. But feel free to twist it into a verb, or even an adjective, if you wish! ~ James

So does anyone else not like this new voting set up? I personally much preferred the ranking system, even if this way is perhaps more fair.

Whatever you do still leaves the system open to mates voting for mates no matter how good or bad the word.....but it's just a game so who cares? The fun is from participating (for me, anyway).

Hey kmccardle, the rankings are still here -- but they are not on the front page anymore. You can see the complete list Verboticisms for each definition on the daily stats page. (On the first day this list is presented in alphabetical order. After that, the words are ranked by score.)

The other thing to remember is that this is still an interim measure. We are creating a clustering function which will allow people to play in smaller groups so that there will be more direct interaction and communication between the players. This should be ready for testing in the next week or so... ~ James
