  • Sionnach, your lists are back—there was a bug on the lists page.

    I worked hard, and will keep working, to make things fit together sensibly, but some restructuring was necessary to combine the two sites.

    I feel horribly that this transition has been bumpier than I'd hoped, but I'm working as quickly as possible to smooth rough edges, fix bugs, and add back all the Wordie functionality. I'm very sorry for the headaches, but please bear with this for just a little longer.

  • They appear to have returned. Or are they incomplete (there is some php exception in the file)?
    Regarding the general structure: Ack! I would’ve preferred the design I suggested on wordnikie suggestion box (the post is prefaced with your nick).
    I hope everything is going to be fine soon.

  • I feel completely betrayed by the disappearance of all my lists, the complete lack of any kind of parallel structure between this site and Wordie. At a time when I am studying for my advanced Spanish proficiency test which takes place in two days time, the lack of access to the lists of Spanish vocabulary and phrases that I spent quite some effort to compile during recent months is extremely disappointing.
