  • "...at times the shock presents as an imploding clock -
    a Dali-esque reminder that if we invented Time (and
    hoo! we did) we could invent alternatives far more sublime -
    and truer to the prurient experience of ogling Eternity:
    close enough for us to sense its meat."

  • I would like to see the wordie community able to link certain words to each other as synonym, antonyms, homonyms, etc.

    There could be links to the associated words under the appropriate category in the word's page.

    Also, word forms could be grouped together. One could group together, for example, prescient and prescience. Instead of one being listed 9 times and the other 12 times, both could be shown as listed 21 times.

    All of these could be managed by the community. For example, any user could link a certain word to another or group words, but a certain number of members objecting to the action could negate it. Almost like wikipedia, but not quite :).

    Forgive me if these have already been suggested, as I suspect they may have.
