    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    Just ignore it. Many people do.

    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.

    No, thank you. I already have the sounds off. It's interactive enough.

    Umm, it does...and even acknowledges when you've beaten the hint...

    If you have a word better than the hint, you're not 'charged' for it.

    I don't play people I don't know - suddenly I have loads of new games. Ridiculous new feature.

    It's an abbreviation and slang, therefore not valid under the rules.

    We try to match the Webster’s and Collin’s Scrabble dictionaries.  We started with an international standard word list used by many word games. People
    and Chumbots use the exact same list..except some of the easier
    Chumbots can’t use parts of the list. It’s used by quite a few
    games and you can search on it if interested. However the list only has
    words and not definitions. We look definitions up via a service
    called Wordnik.com which does not have nearly as many definitions.
    In an upcoming update we are going to research many of the most
    unusual words and create a list of their definitions we can use in
    game.  Scrabble’s list is copyrighted so we cannot copy it.
    The link for their list is below in case you are curious.
    If you would like to suggest words to add or delete just send us
    a support request.
    Thanks for…

    The word list has over 175,000 words and should have all common words. Sometimes this occurs when other words are being formed at the same time or tiles are being played along more than one row or column. Every place there are two or more tiles touching must form a valid word. There could also be a stray tile on the board somewhere which will not let it validate any words. You can send a screen shot if you still have the turn.

    Words that are usually capitalized..names of places, people, etc. are not valid words. So things like the days of the week, month names, countries etc. are not on the list. Thanks!

    We do add words to the word list when people report missing words that are in one of the major scrabble dictionaries.
    This link has more info on that: https://wordchums.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/221163-word-list-bounty

    Tess, 'quid' is a roll of tobacco, or slang for a pound (currency), not just the Latin word.

    Hmmm, you're sure you've never mused or thought aloud? ;)

    Rigged?? Oh for goodness sake.
    It's called random selection. Try playing with real tiles in a cloth bag, and see what you get.

    No way, thanks. Under enough pressure to perform on demand.
