I like 'coiffology'.....

I like hairballogy, but then again I created it. I guess it's lucky we can't vote for our own words...

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 :)

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!
