Hi all! New to this and it's fun, but here's my 3 cents worth... 1. Placing the most voted-for words at the top of the list biases the voting. 2. Words entered earlier are subject to more votes. Could you not take all the entries before voting begins? Or have voting for yesterday's word while today's definitions are open? 3. You should add the part of speech to the definition (verb, noun, etc). I think the celeverer words are the ones which match the definition. 4. Please make these comment boxes a bit bigger! Thanks, Jon.

Hey Jonno, Thanks for your suggestions. They are all good! We are working on way to divide players/words into smaller groups, which will change the way verboticisms are listed, and the way voting happens. Stay tuned... In terms of the "part of speech", we actually had that in earlier, but took it out because people didn't like it. We could add it back... What do you guys think? Thanks for playing! ~ James

I've just joined, and so far, every definition has been for a verb, but most of them lend themselves better to nouns. For example, it's easier to name a disease or condition than it is to give a word that describes succumbing to such a condition. Most of the winning words are nouns, as you can see. I think you should either formally open it up for any part of speech communicating the idea, choose the part of speech for each definition more carefully, or strictly enforce matching the part of speech of the definition.

Nice idea, look forward to playing :) Agree with Jonno on all points, especially the problem that entries made earlier will automatically get more votes...

James, the parts of speech is a great idea! It seems that we have a lot of clever people suggesting words so I don't think any creativity will be suffer. In fact, it may inspire more ingenuity. Great game!

I think that we might take a tip from ErWenn keep it formally open to all parts of speech, but then allow players to create variants for specific part of speech (e.g, a verb, a noun, an adj,) and award bonus points for the extra creativity. ~ James
