  • Hi folks, some fixes:

    · You can now edit your comments on words. Comments on profiles and lists can't be edited yet, but that'll come soon.

    · Tony (Wordnik's VP of Engineering--he and our colleague Kumanan are real engineers, while I just make train noises and pretend) fixed the issue with most international characters in comments. The remaining broken characters (a small percentage) will most likely remain broken, an unfortunate side effect of my having been sloppy with Wordie's db in the early days.

    · Until we have a past comments section that lets us page through all the comments, I increased the number shown on Zeitgeist.

    It may take a little while to get back to feature parity with Wordie, but that's the plan, and then we'll keep going. Thanks again for your patience and bug reports, which are always welcome anywhere here, or to john@wordnik.com

    Does this go too for list descriptions? As I've a recent one that's broken I don't know whether this is an oversight, a to-do or a DB effect that's going to stick around. Thank you for doing all you can to get things up and running already!

  • Does that mean that my list will be broken forever?

  • Edit: I renamed it and it's fixed now.
