  • No suggestions yet? Come now, good Wordies. Surely we have some suggestions for this new Wordnikie venture. We can't all be suffering from some kind of Wordnikie's aphasia.

  • Well, I'll start things off by compiling some of the suggestions from the Wordnik page.

    From seanahan: Keep the minimalist approach.

    From Milosrdenstvi: Don't lose the Wordie spirit.

    From skipvia and reesetee: Make sure that Wordnik allows fart jokes.

    From yarb... well, I'll just quote him: "What makes wordie fun is having the majority of the 'homepage' devoted to comments, and the rest to other recent activity. Commenting and perpetual motion is the lifeblood of it - you've got to keep that interface as the default, not just tuck it away as an option."

  • No fear, ptero--I'm sure I'll come up with suggestions, as soon as I digest the whole idea.

    Did I say I wanted fart jokes? =:-O

  • OK, now I’ve come up with a few—three—rather general suggestions for Wordnik.

    Paul, the man behind dict.cc might be interested in cooperating with Wordnik (if he doesn’t already). It would be very convenient to have a personalized word page whose modules include one showing translations from dict.cc.

    And what about Wiktionary? An IPA pronunciation that distinguishes /ɚ/ and /əɹ/, and /�?/ and /ɜɹ/ would be much appreciated.

    Perhaps a compilation of regional pronunciation variations in full-blown phonetic IPA notation is a bit much to ask right now, but it would certainly be quite intriguing.

  • I think it was sionnach, reesetee. Wasn't it?

    I second yarb's comment, though I'm admittedly so lame as to have not checked out our future overlords yet.

    September 11, 2009

  • huh? what did i do now? i'm sure it was an accident.

    September 11, 2009

  • Nothing, reesetee just said you love fart jokes.


    September 11, 2009

  • No, I think that was skipvia.

    September 11, 2009

  • I know. What does a deviant Wordizen have to do around here to get a good fight started?!


    September 11, 2009

  • Wait, I was goading skipvia. Don't you see? I'm aiding and abetting!
