Hi everyone

giratinaman:
Hello all. This is my first time using the forum so Im still getting used to the rules and format, so please excuse me if I make a mistake. I am a huge fan of the Chihuahua website and am an avid lover of words and language. I am so glad that a website like this exists, so thank you all.

I have been playing the game for a few months now, and I was overjoyed when the website added the.7 by many option, which is my favorite. I have a few questions for those who know a little more than I do if thats alright.

First of all, is there a way for me to suggest words that I think should be common and to give feedback on on common words that I think are uncommon? If there is an obvious thread about this I would appreciate it if someone could link me there. Thanks.

Second, I noticed that the regular puzzles allow plurals of words that have irregular plurals or more than just the typical s ending, which I like a lot. I also noticed that there arent even any ss in the 7 by many puzzles unless I enable all words ending with s including plurals. Is there a way for me to play 7 by many puzzles with the letter s but only when it is used like in the regular puzzles? If not, is that a feature that is in progress or one that I could request?

Thank you to this community and I always look forward to some excellent words!

Hi giratinaman, and welcome to the forum.

Regarding your first question, any queries about words can be raised in the "Words" category, whether they be a request for a new word to be considered for inclusion or a suggestion for a word to be changed from rare to common or vice versa. Simply start a new thread. In order not to spoil the game for other players it's best to leave your query until after the game is closed. However, if it's absolutely essential that you raise it while the game is still open the requirement  is that you don't mention the actual word in the subject heading and that you state that the post is a spoiler.

I'll leave someone else to answer the second point.

Hi, Giratinaman, and welcome! I love your name, since I am an avid player of Pokémon Go. Never got into the card game version or earlier electronic versions of Pokémon. I suspect that Sir Bidoof is also a fellow Pokémon player.

To address your second question, there are two parts. First, although there haven't been any esses appearing in the 7 by many game so far, I am certain they will appear eventually in the natural rotation of the seed words. Second, it seems to me it would be fairly straightforward for Alan to add the 7 by many option to the create your own puzzle.

Welcome Giratinaman, yes it is great to be among like-minded word enthusiasts. I really enjoy winding down with Chihuahua and the discussion we have about words.

Alan W:
Hello, giratinaman. Welcome aboard!

Concerning the treatment of the letter S in the 7-by-many puzzles, here is a fun fact which, as far as I can recall, has never been discussed before: there are no Ss in 7-by-many puzzles! Yes you can choose the option in "My puzzles" to allow all plurals, but it won't actually make any difference, because there is never a puzzle with an S.

I think I set it up that way because there were plenty of possible puzzles without the S, and I have the impression that the handling of plurals in the other puzzle types causes a lot of confusion and frustration. You might be the first player to express enthusiasm for the intricacies of handling plurals.

So now that the issue is out in the open, what do others think? Should we allow the S into 7-by-many puzzles in the future?
