"’I know a place where we can get some alcohol,’ she
said. ‘Let’s go there; then we can really get blurfled.’
‘No,’ he said. ‘I’m blurfled enough now.’"
- Philip K. Dick, Our Friends from Frolix 8 (1970)
Hi, Bonvivant. Darkwing and Rockin' Robin are already on this list, so no worries. I'll add Little Red Rooster if you'll post your comment on the word page for it. :-)
Kalayzich: Do you mean Kehaar (Watership Down)? If so, it's on the list. I'll add the Harry Potter birds as well. The two Potters that I know have actual names are Hawkes (phoenix) and Hermes. If you can think of any others, let me know. Thanks!
Sorry, ru--didn't mean for you to feel as though you were talking to yourself. I'm adding your addiction to the list to give it that special Latvian flair. The joke may be on you, but at least we can read about it. ;-)
From Mental Floss: "Without a Presidential election preceding it, this is kind of a lame duck holiday. Though the holiday was created to celebrate the introduction of the 20th Amendment in 1933, the amendment was actually ratified in January of that year. Lame duck day is more of a way to honor those who just left office after being rendered totally ineffective for a few months. In other words, it is appropriately lame."
Hi, deinonychus. I've been away for a few months but I'm slowly crawling back. Don't worry about making a list that overlaps someone else's--that's the beauty of being able to make your own list. Welcome. :-)
Hi all. Rolig, my sentiments match yours. I'm willing to wait out the Big Tangle if it means that I'll be able to stay in contact with my good old Wordnikian friends, especially since many are not on FB or other such sites. But I've lost my enthusiasm for Wordnik. I'm hoping it's temporary, because I still don’t believe there’s another site where you can blather on happily with like-minded word lovers who are so funny, civil, and intelligent. Wouldn’t it be great if we could have that back again? And I miss my lists, and everyone else’s lists, and flinging fufluns. I’m still around, but I’m waiting. In the meantime, I hope to see all of you elsewhere. *sigh*
Hi Erin. For what it's worth--since bilby and marky already supplied information--I'm usually using Firefox v.3.6.16. I also use Chrome (on another computer--don't have version # handy), but haven't checked to see whether it's happening there. Thanks!
If it's only happening on lists with more than 100 words, I'm in big trouble. ;-)
Is everyone still having problems adding words to lists (on the list page itself)? I'm still seeing the word in the add field after I press "add"--and it doesn't immediately show up on the list unless I refresh the page.
Also, I was seeing a notification when a word I'm adding is already on the list, and that's gone now.
On a positive note, I see that a "view" option now pops up near each of my list names on every word page. Thanks!
I almost hate to say that I agree with Pro, frogapplause, mollusque, oro, rolig, et al., because somehow admitting it means it's so--but I'm feeling rather extraneous myself here lately. Like mollusque, I'm curious about where the Wordniks-That-Be see this site going. My feeling of late is that it may be traveling in a different direction than I'd hoped it would, and that makes me very sad indeed.
McKenzie would "roar around the office shouting 'Ferret up your trouser!'" whenever he wanted to alter made-up pages at top speed. "Then he might shout, 'Reverse ferret!' and all the pages would have to be changed all over again." -- "Rupert Murdoch and the Reverse Ferret," Slate.com, 11/17/08
