    Thanks, but there’s enough clutter.

    It’s there in the way the letters are coloured, and in the tones you hear when you place them.

    Agreed this is something I would never ever use.

    jojiieme commented  · 

    They seem to have removed the FAQ section from the Help pages that discussed this. It used to be just over a week for the allowable delay between moves, to accommodate players from all around the world and in different jobs etc.
    This snip is from the section here on Turn-based Game:
    "Word Chums is a turn based game designed to be played with with another person. The plus side of this is each person can take their turn whenever they have time. You don't have to commit a block of time to sit and finish a game with someone. For this reason it may be a day or two before your friend has time to get to their turn.

    It is also possible to play someone real time if they are playing at the same time as you. We find that people often do this by chatting to the other player and seeing if they can play several turns in a row or even finish a game. You can see when people are online with the eyeglasses and this is often a good time to see if they have time to play more turns. However many people do play the game in 5 minute intervals in the day as they are doing other things and can't commit a block of time.

    For this reason many people start lots of games with many different people so they often have several turns to play. "

    No proper nouns please - it would never end! Then you’d have to allow all kinds of crazy spellings because “it’s a brand name” or a restaurant, or a landmark or something...

    jojiieme commented  · 

    Within reason. At present it seems random that food items (for example) in Asian or European cooking are accepted or rejected, yet have been available in Western supermarkets and fast food shops for decades. Or Asian instruments (qin, gamelan etc) have been accepted in many dictionaries for decades including Scrabble dictionary updates but not in US competition version.

    You can check to see they’re ok, and then let the system take over.
    Agreed it’s annoying, however when a game is started you can use Chat to state preferences for a quick-moving game.

    I agree with PatE, I want to play with my current mob, who are in many time zones all over the world. Please don’t change this unilaterally - it’d be awful for insomniacs and shift workers!

    Perhaps just greater contrast?
    We find the placement is fine, but then we're both using larger screens (tablets).
    Maybe screen design could be tested with different age groups and a 'vision' access group...

    Isn't that what the Win:Loss ratio tells you?? We have enough info on each other, if you click on the chum.

    Just because you read a lot, or do crosswords, or have a scientific or linguistic or academic background doesn't mean you're cheating. For heaven's sake. Some of us have been playing Scrabble type games for over fifty years! Some of us went through university, work in publishing (have done for decades), or specialised trades with their own history and jargon. Some of us know several languages and how they've influenced English over centuries of travel and colonisation.
    Read dictionaries in-between playing games!

    jojiieme commented  · 

    That was FLUKED not flunked, stupid autocorrect.

    jojiieme commented  · 

    How do you know that they're not just wellread, or good at crosswords?? Or multilingual?? Or well educated?? I just flunked a 183 pt word, my husband a 219 pt word. It happens.

    Ummm, some things could be private - this facility would need to be optional. I might not want a friend to know if we're planning a surprise party, or have my partner know I'm grumbling about him.

    Why has my comment from three weeks ago explaining why this won't work been removed?

    Why have my explanations of two definitions needed by other posters been removed? (Outro and droved) I'm a proofreader and book editor and have expertise spanning several decades that can help in this area.

    jojiieme commented  · 

    It's not Accessible-friendly to have to the Menu for all kinds of things mid-game. The general rule is: more than three clicks, and it's not accessible. So if it's my turn, I've tried a few times, can't make a word and want to pass this time but play next time (yes, I've done it), having to to the menu is NOT disability friendly.

    jojiieme commented  · 

    Shy doe, if your opponent has finished their rack first, then the game is over. Just like in Scrabble.

    jojiieme commented  · 

    Having the pass button is actually handy for a lot of reasons, especially if someone has turned off chat.
    We've just had a death in the family; I have about 20 games running. I'm not stopping them, but they're running slower than usual. I can miss a turn.
    Other times I've had a great word I didn't want go break up but not the right place to join it. Passed in case the next turn gave me the opening; sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. It's called Strategy.

    2mystic, some people live in countries with 7-12 different time zones, and play with people who are another 4-6 zones further away. Stop making assumptions.

    Developers- This was marked as PLANNED 12 months (several updates) ago - what happened? Many of us got very excited that it was close to reality!

    No thank you.
    No need to brag about success: you can see a person's level, success rate, and their ribbon, and access their stats page. That oughta be enough.
