That "Join" button looks exactly like the "Create" button. There should be some obvious indicator that you're not clicking on the same thing you click on every day. The page looks nearly identical, and I know I'm not the first person to accidentally join a group.

Hey ErWenn, Yes, I think you're right. I have removed the "join group" button. Players are now required to create a unique word before it can be saved. (Plus, as an added bonus, I have taken your name off the creators list for allwise's word, which you "accidentally" joined. Now you can go ahead and create your own word for the day.) Thanks ~ James
