Oh, hey, I just saw this page. Hi! Yes, I have a(nother) cub now so for the moment I won't be around as often... (Hey! Stop that cheering over there!) but the profile was indeed set to private as a default.
It's delightful to know I've been missed, though. Thanks for the kind thoughts!
If someone, say for instance a bear, had accounts on both Wordie and Wordnik, their Wordnik settings took precedence. And since Wordnik accounts defaulted to private until recently, some née Wordie accounts got switched to private, unfortunately.
I'll ping the bear via other channels and let her know. Though I think she's got her hands full at the moment, literally and figuratively :-)
