Me too!  :(

I agree that compound words are hard to find.  However, I wouldn't agree that palmtop and taproom are common words.  They're not common to me, at least.  I did get palmtop, but not taproom.  I've actually never heard the word before.

Words / Rehire/rehired
« on: June 16, 2020, 07:19:02 AM »
From the recent HEREDITARY game: Rehire (common), rehired (rare).  I can't see why they should be classified differently.  Both common, I'd suggest.

Words / Cloistral common?
« on: May 25, 2020, 09:35:11 PM »
Found by only 27 of 336 players in yesterday's 10 letter puzzle.  It's certainly not common to me!

I was a little nonplussed myself by the fact that nonplus was rare and nonplussed (and nonplused) were common.  An anomaly, surely.

Words / Word suggestion: energist
« on: April 26, 2020, 10:00:02 AM »
Not accepted in yesterday's standard puzzle.  An energist is an adherent to the philosophy of energism, a concept in ethics in which self-realisation is the highest good (according to dictionary.com)  It's also the adjectival form of energism.  I'm not sure if energism is accepted in Chi.  If not, I'd suggest including it too.  Both, of course, are rare words.

Words / Word suggestion: antivax
« on: April 22, 2020, 06:31:56 PM »
I tried antivax in yesterdays EXCAVATING game, but it wasn't accepted.  Some dictionaries list it as anti-vax, others as one word.  Worth including as a rare word perhaps.

Chid, corse and sith are all accepted in Chi as rare words.  I think alarum is too.  I can't remember seeing any of the others.

Words / Made-up words
« on: April 16, 2020, 06:20:20 PM »
From yesterday's BIOCHEMIST game - it's not a real word but it should be:  Shitcom (a really bad sitcom).  It could be applied to so many shows!

Words / Tangoed/tangoes
« on: April 13, 2020, 07:17:44 AM »
Both words appeared in yesterday's Challenge puzzle.  Tangoed was common, tangoes was rare.  That seems anomalous to me.  Shouldn't they both be classified the same?

Words / Word suggestion: godsent
« on: April 13, 2020, 07:13:39 AM »
I tried godsent in yesterday's Challenge puzzle, but it wasn't accepted.  It's in several dictionaries as an adjective derived from the noun godsend.

Whatever / Re: Question about players names

I also love Douglas Adams' work.  The Dirk Gently books were also very funny.  I remember being outraged that his final novel, The Salmon of Doubt, was published unfinished an obscenely short time after Adams' untimely early death.  I've never read it for that reason.

MK, I remember you saying once before that you have another Chi alter ego - Klaatu.  I haven't seen him for a long while, so I'm assuming he's returned to his home planet.  :)

Words / Indoor/indoors
« on: April 07, 2020, 06:00:06 PM »
I played both indoor (accepted as a common word) and indoors (not accepted) in the INDECOROUS 10 letter puzzle.  Dictionaries classify indoors as an adverb, so it isn't a plural or verb form ending in 's'.  That being the case, it should be accepted in my view.

He does have periodic short absences from the game, so no need to worry unduly.

Words / Re: whoops!
« on: March 10, 2020, 10:37:01 PM »
Woops (A misspelling of whoops according to Wiktionary) was accepted as a rare word.  Seems anomalous to me!
