Proboscic: having a proboscis; relating to, resembling, or of the nature of a proboscis — now chiefly humorous with reference to a person's nose (OED). See proboscidiform.

The problem is not that different people have different subscriptions, it's that you aren't activating the links you provide. It looks like you are using square brackets around the URL, but those are only for internal links to word pages; they are misdirecting to the "Not Found" page. If I paste your OED link directly into my browser, it takes me to the desired webpage in the OED (because I have a subscription and I'm logged in).
To activate the links, use <a href="URL">text you want to show as link</a>. (A summary of html codes pops up if you click the "Some html" link over the comment box.)
Hi from a biology PhD student! I saw your comments about OED, but it turns out C█NY (City Uni██████ of... the Empire State) doesn't provide access to the service either (unless it does via a different link*). What a pity. Also, I studied Latin and Greek in high school in Italy and share your love for those languages. Welcome to Wordnik, P.
I don't use software beyond the search tools that Google offers. The problem in researching a word like "malace" is sifting through all the false positives: misspellings of "malice", OCR errors, proper names, etc.
Wordnik doesn't have a tool for bulk upload of words. One could probably use something like AppleScript to automate uploads from a Excel file.
Hi biocon, thanks for the reply. I've also flagged many words as occurring in the OED, using the tag oed2 (lower case from the Wordie days when upper case wasn't accepted).
Some of the words you've listed are what I call dictionary words, since there are no known examples of their occurrence outside of dictionaries (malace, mollicine, although the later is also a trade name Mollicine). Trawling Google Books and Google Scholar to find bonafide usages of these words can be fun.
By the way, I'm also a biologist. Welcome to Wordnik!
