HOORAY FOR LICKETY DAY!!!!
3:00 am

why has he stopped.
3:00 am
Merk

No more Lickety? What happened? What is the alternative. I use the list when I'm pinched for time. This will really curtail my babbling.
3:00 am
FMitch

Hear Hear, bring back Lickety - it's great having him and BJ provide this great support to all us babblers
3:00 am
Atalante

the alternative is BJ'S LIST
3:00 am

He is so much appreciated but - burned out? Guess he's allowed to have a life!

We hear ya Atalante!

morning all
3:04 am

I think that some player presumed the lists were part of the babble set up and didn't realise they are done on a voluntary basis, and real life does have a way of interupting babbleland as we all know.
3:04 am

morning MVA

3:05 am

LOL sprite
3:05 am

i would never finish if it weren't for the lists

And I can understand Lickety needing a break. It takes a lot of time to make the clues the way he does.
3:05 am
mrpresident

Blaze, no one offended Lickety!! he is unoffendable!!
3:05 am
froelica

how does he (and bj) compile the lists?
3:06 am
FMitch

Hi Blaze - unless you have been babbling as long as us and remember the days pre list and pre pro, the level of expectation is already set.
3:06 am
sherb

you're right FMitch... I gave up playing every day because I just couldn't find the time... Lickety and bj make a huge commitment in posting their clues...
3:06 am

Those were the days, my friends!

indeed, sprite... those were the days... scrolling through the log for clues, finding partial lists... only asking for clues when we were desperate... babblers these days don't relaise how good they've got it!! ;)

Hello everyone!
3:10 am
Blaze

I have been babbling for over a year now... remember the BJ posts in the chat log and then swmbo started bab anon and the recently lickety and MRP made there great contribution... I guess many do not know the contribution made by these wonderful people.
3:10 am
sprite

Best birthday present ever :)
Well, I liked the old days, but I am having fun now as well. Sometimes I get a little irritated when people ask for clues after clues without looking themselves, but somehow they don't hang around that long. The hard core is growing with lots of great players :)
3:10 am

Sept 30, 2003 is your birthday, mrp? You're very advanced for your age! lol

and hi SweetTooth
3:11 am
FMitch

It was a totally different game in the early days, babblers played against eachother to win or finish first, clue giving was a very different matter then
3:11 am
jillibus

hi sweet tooth!
3:12 am
sprite

I think I joined babble when the competition was not that strong anymore. I enjoyed the helpful atmosphere of the site from the start.
3:12 am
jillibus

I think the cooperation in this community, rather than competition, is what make this site so very special
3:12 am
SweetTooth

sherb, I remember the old babble days with hardly any chat, except for toohott asking if Gooner was around.
3:13 am

lol SweetTooth :)

Jilibus I totally agree..... we have had some great friendship circles form here.....

LOL sprite we know, was only teasing, would never take offence at anything you say :)
3:15 am
jillibus

hey, that sounds really good, mrp! Trouble is I don't have any lime or any soda, so I guess just vodka will have to do - on the rox. Here's to Lickety and BJ and you and angelSong and swmbo and all the other helpers who have made this great game! Salut!

3:15 am

Well, as non-native speaker I never know when I put my foot into something, lol.
3:16 am
Haz1558

sprite - it's quite alright! I was just teasing. Hard core is used in the building trade to use as a foundation for things, so quite appropriate. I was being mischievious as it is also used to indicate levels of naughtiness in the porn industry. No offence taken!
3:17 am
sprite

Lol... goes to show my ignorance on porn, I guess ;)
I am glad I didn't offend anyone.
3:17 am
FMitch

Haz, I don't believe it I was just typing the same thing pretty much word for word.

jillibus - good call on swmbo and angel too, shouldn't have forgotten them.
3:17 am

Not at all.... I remember a time on the old chat log when we would get very offensive intruders.... it was nasty..

Do you remember in the old setup, when typing a very long entry without spaces would bring the wordlist down? We had some very irritating trolls then, who kept doing it just to spite us.
3:19 am

didn't even notice, sprite... just spent five minutes wondering what you were apologising for...
3:19 am

okay my vague word is defraud... duh

3:21 am
Haz1558

Sleep well, jillibus.
3:21 am

I remember that. I think we have become a much stronger self policing comunity thank the old days and therfore we tend to be able to get rid of trolls as we all unite.

3:31 am

3:32 am
Haz1558

So what would the defnition (imaginary) be? (Mr Harris is an Australian entertainer, singer, painter, TV personality)
3:32 am

Any chance of dissuading Lickety from his decision to retire from his list?

3:39 am

Perhaps by giving him an extra 2 hours per day and some energy?

yes sprite, can you clue the ce 7/36? i dont like ce words
5:33 am
Haz1558

ce7/36 past tense of ce6/21 and sounding like a 'cutting' word. Now I really am off.
5:33 am

Ce7 is past tense of Ce6/21, Ce + Ra4/4 - Ra5/12

Hi all. Newbie here. Can anyone tell me where to find out about the Tiles Stats boxes. Not in the help section
5:35 am
mattygroves

I'm still working on these blasted p words.
5:35 am
Anniebrook

scroll down and click on babblers anon, then click on general and get the stats for today
5:35 am
sprite

What do you want to know about them, Angb? And welcome to babble.
5:36 am
Miki

hi Angb
5:36 am
mattygroves

The stats show how many words there are that begin with each letter, and how many words of each letter length (you'll lose those in a couple of weeks if you don't go pro)
5:37 am
Angb

Yum, what do they stand for? I can figure out the word stats i.e. so many words of 5 letters. But what does C 6/15 mean?
5:37 am
herdarkmistress

is the x actually usefull today or is it till filler?
5:37 am
sprite

That there are 15 words starting from that C, and you found 6 so far.
5:37 am
sprite

It is used, more than once even, mistress.
5:38 am
AS

i found one word so far uses X
5:38 am
Angb

Oh, confused. Of course there are double ups of some letters!!! Now I see the pattern. Why I do word puzzles not number puzzles LOL
5:38 am
mattygroves

I've not found any that use the x...
5:39 am
herdarkmistress

Angb the meaning is say the word is cats: that is ca 4/4 which means it stats with ca is 4 letters long and equals 4 points, each letter in that is only worth one point
5:39 am
sprite

Hehe, Angb, to torture another side of your brain of course!

matty and As: a kind of obsolete communication and paint.
5:40 am
mattygroves

Got the communication ( I always miss that one ) - paint?
5:40 am
herdarkmistress

Angb if you look at the x tile its worth 6 points so if there was the word xray it would be xa 4/9 does that make sense angb
5:40 am
Atalante

or rubber ... paint or rubber stuff
5:41 am
sprite

La5/20: colorless or milky sap of certain plants, such as the poinsettia, that coagulates on exposure to air.

Yes, Atlante - they do - I tend to copy and paste them into a spreadsheet, onto which I've put conditional formatting so that the cel changes colour when I fill in a word. The only problem is that you have to work out the alphabetically order yourself.

7:08 am

I am sure you do, HDM, but look at the grid, the vlaue is one point for each of the tiles, and no doubling occurs for a four letter word.
You may have it, but that is not correct as far as the tiles go
7:08 am

opps not 4 sorry but i still cant find it on the list. No the problem child just spilt coke on the keyboard. He go told to go away with coke.

7:37 am
mattygroves

In many chat boxes/chat rooms etc there is a way you can choose not to see the chat from just certain people if you wish to - you can block them as it were. I wonder if Doc has ever thought of that here (like Epinions has the Block List, so you don't have to read reviews of people you find offensive or just thick).
7:38 am

8:06 am

8:14 am

8:14 am
ARB

ar 5/10 -- a + re 4/4
8:15 am
ARB

The lo 6/18 is a brand name for cosmetics, I think
8:15 am

I guess it must also mean something to be in the grid lol
8:16 am

because you're worth it, matty
8:16 am

Bis spaeter, guys! (how to avoid using a word in the grid)

9:25 am
sherb

you can open Lickety's list in another window, then minimise it (click the button next to the X in the top right corner) then drag the edges of the box until it fits where you want it to on the screen... or you can just click toggle between the two screens using the bar at the bottom of the screen...

9:37 am

oh, so AOL is my browser, thanks
9:37 am
artlady

Ok, so am I. Go up to "file" at the top and click on "new", then "New web window."
9:37 am
artlady

A new window with babble with appear on top of your current window.
9:37 am
sherb

Annie - like when you start Babble, that's called opening a window... just do it again, but open Lickety's list in the second one... then you should get a button at the bottom of the screen that says Babble and one that says Lickety's list and you can click on them to switch between the two windows...
9:38 am
artlady

The problem is, with AOL, you can't just open up a new window and tab between them like sherb says (sorry, sherb)
9:39 am
Flask1

I was thinking the same ART
9:39 am
artlady

Annie, down at the bottom you should have a little button that says "Window (2)" if you have 2 windows opoen.

9:42 am
brandyjack

What did I do this time?
9:43 am
artlady

It's just with Lickity's list ending (most likely) people are panicking and others are reminding them that your list has been then for a long time.
9:43 am
artlady

So it's a GOOD talking!
9:43 am

Especially for those of us who rely on the lists after a while (sometimes a rather short while...)

1:01 pm
artlady

I've found a lot of Kathy's my age. Not so many today, more Kate

1:32 pm
artlady

there are a lot of really common words. I went to the list too early.
1:32 pm
shutterbug

well, that means I have 174 words left.
1:32 pm
featherbee

i have 171, giving it about 10 more minutes before the list
1:32 pm
musicmom

OH I thought you meant you had 121 remaining
1:33 pm
shutterbug

feather, you have that many words, or you have that many left/
1:33 pm

well, I guess I'll wait before I start the list then
1:34 pm
shutterbug

oops, thanks, I needed that word too!
1:35 pm
Atalante

I want to wait till I have one of the big letters done before getting the list, but that might be a bit optomistic
1:35 pm
musicmom

that's what I was going for too ata. I wanted to finish the f first. Not happening for me though
1:36 pm
featherbee

atalante, are you helping with lickety's list now?
1:36 pm
Uneaixoise

59 p's . . . do we have a babble version of 99 bottles of beer on the wall? . . . "59 words with a p in the grid"

Hi Music and Pam!
1:38 pm

Nice, chic. I think a lot of people were panicking, used to the assistance.
1:39 pm
FMitch

Chic - that is exactly what we were saying in the log this moring!!
1:39 pm
artlady

I certainly hope no one criticized him for it!
1:39 pm

This morning being UK time that is :)
1:39 pm

It's amazing to me that people find time to not only play all the time but to assist the rest of us!
1:40 pm

1:40 pm

Yes, all seemed grateful
1:40 pm
FMitch

... and it turned into a do you remember when fest pre pro and pre lists etc
1:40 pm
featherbee

i haven't seen negative criticism of lickety, only regret at the loss of a wonderful resource. i think all understand that lickety has done us a wonderful service, and many have offered to help.
1:41 pm

well put, chic!
1:41 pm

hello fellow babblers!

Some folks were not kind, I guess. Too codependant...

I missed the "fest' and am glad of it...
1:41 pm

Hi, debb!
1:41 pm
featherbee

oh, that's too bad chic. i'm glad i missed those conversations then.
1:41 pm
hangthedj

hello everyone, just out of curiosity, what happened to lickety's list?
1:42 pm
debbinla

not kind? that is sad.....
1:42 pm
pam

At the risk of being whatever, I do prefer the hint clues to the ex + first and last vowel clues
1:42 pm
artlady

Well, also consider that Dr. G doesn't make a living on this...not really even enuf to cover his expenses. There's a lot of great people here!
1:42 pm
pam

I don't want the word spelled out
1:42 pm
pam

OK< enough from me....
1:42 pm
musicmom

Man I am sooooo out of the loop. I didn't know anything was going on. I am never around at the flip. I started by using BJs list and just grab what ever is available.
1:42 pm
featherbee

lickety's been extremely busy lately, and is having trouble keeping up
1:43 pm
hangthedj

oh, i see. are people are mad at him for it or something?
1:43 pm
musicmom

I would play even if there weren't lists though I do use them as a time management tool
1:44 pm
pam

I don't use them--too much trouble going back and forth...I am inherently lazy. But, I used to look at BrandyJack's count before the revised grid...
1:44 pm
chic

Thanks for your kind words! I told our 'favorite' couple not to let a few rude folk ruin it for them.
1:44 pm
shutterbug

chic, I just read your post. I totally agree with you. I was sad to hear about lickety, but totally understand. like I said yesterday, was that babble was actually much more fun before lists and stats. you got as many words as you could, and then sometimes people posted clues in the chat. you did what you could, and it was fun to see who could get the most words. the goal wasnt to get every possible word, it was to get as many as YOU could find.
1:44 pm
featherbee

thank you chic! i would hate for them to feel that the ones being not so kind represented everyone.
1:45 pm
chic

exactly, Shutterbug!
1:45 pm
shutterbug

I hope that nobody thought I was being unkind.
1:45 pm
debbinla

yes thanks chic - we're very grateful for all they've done
1:45 pm
shutterbug

I wish the game had stayed the way it was when it first started. That is, if anybody else has been here that long.
1:46 pm
shutterbug

I do use and like the lists, but it was better without stats and lists.
1:46 pm
Atalante

I agree shutterbug
1:46 pm
chic

So please respond with your kind words to let them know how much there presence is appreciated.
1:46 pm
musicmom

I can see that shutterbug but many of us started playing recently and the appeal of fireworks is just too great! Many of us don't know a babble pre- bjs list
1:46 pm
debbinla

how long has this game existed shutter?
1:46 pm
artlady

Things change and evolve, shutter. Sometimes not the way we prefer, but people can always play without the log or hints or anything if they want. I enjoy the community.
and the help!
1:47 pm
pam

I like the changes, too, though. I just don't like the spelled out clues... But remember, if I finish, it is luck, I don't play to finish...
1:47 pm
shutterbug

I dont know
1:47 pm
musicmom

I also think for anal type a personalities the personal compulsion to finish every grid would be less if there weren't stats
1:47 pm
shutterbug

but a long time.
1:47 pm

That is very true artlady

No one has to use lists, chat, clue or finish. We all have options at our finger tips
1:48 pm
debbinla

aah -- so many games i've missed!! :-) thanks fmitch
1:48 pm
musicmom

I know debbinia - that just makes me sad
1:49 pm
pam

I can't hide the chat completely, just my posting, maybe its's a mac thing...And I like the community...
1:49 pm
shutterbug

then I've probably been here since it first came out.
1:49 pm
shutterbug

how can I hide the chat? I woudl like to but cant figure out how..
1:49 pm
artlady

Ok, browser spasm. It started September 30, 2003.
1:49 pm
musicmom

no pam. You can hid it. If you click on my friends or who's online you can't see the chatterbox
1:49 pm
pam

I just don't like the spoon feeding and that is a subjective thing, and I tend to avert my eyes when those clues appear....
1:50 pm
artlady

Shutter, you should upgrade! (Ok, I always tell people that becuz I know Jamie!)
1:50 pm
musicmom

I like the community too. I'm weird I even sit and read the log at times when I'm not playing or posting.
1:50 pm
Euterpe

I like trying to see how many words I can find on the grid, without the aid of the lists. But, I do enjoy using the lists as a last resort, or when I get stuck. I've used them a few times to finish the grid, and it's not as much fun, really. But, that's just my opinion, and I truly do appreciate the lists and the work behind them. If people want to use the lists all the time, more power to them, but they also need to try to support this game if they can.
1:50 pm
FMitch

Babble the game is not the same without the chat running with it - I think that is what makes it stand out from losts of others
1:50 pm
pam

mm---aaahhhhhh, I am not clever enough to figure that out, LOL
1:50 pm

NICE icon, euterpe!
1:51 pm
Euterpe

I love the chat. The people here are so nice. -- Thanks Pam! Same to you!
1:51 pm
bonkler

people get different things out of games. some find they can enhance their status (perceived or other wise), some can play for the quality of the play regardless of outcome. i rarely use a list. i also rarely finish and if i do it is a rersult of kindness in the list and begging on my part. antone upset with mr.p and lickety is an ungrateful snot.
1:51 pm
artlady

Hear, hear, Euterpe.
1:51 pm

hear, hear, Bonk!

1:52 pm
pam

Yeah, well, shutter you might be the only person who needs to ask mum who plays as a member of the communtiy!
1:52 pm
artlady

shutterbug

1:53 pm
Euterpe

What are the benefits of going pro anymore? When I signed up, it was that you got the tile stats and such. Is that still the same?
1:53 pm
artlady

Well, I upgraded right away and it was only 9.95 then.
1:53 pm
FMitch

artlady - if we pay you can we see a real picture of Jamie?
1:53 pm
shutterbug

1:54 pm
musicmom

Okay how about if you offer to additional chores for it. Work it off?
1:54 pm
artlady

Yep. plus the cool icon.
1:54 pm

I figure it is cheap entertainment for the amount of time I spend here.
1:54 pm
featherbee

1:54 pm
shutterbug

nah, I already do the chores I need to do. If my mom needs me to do another chore, she just tells me to go do it.
1:54 pm
pam

1:54 pm
artlady

Bye, feather.
1:55 pm

1:55 pm
Euterpe

Bye feather. Have a nice nap.
1:55 pm
artlady

I like Samurai Sudoku...but paper is better!
1:55 pm
artlady

I am never going to finish ... caffeine overload and I get chatty!
1:55 pm

BUT negotiation is a good life skill shutterbug. Write a proposal on what you will do in order to get the 15.00
1:56 pm
FMitch

Oh artlady - that would be sooooo good if you could dig out a pic!
1:56 pm
Euterpe

I've never played a game of Sudoku in my life. I feel like I'm the only person on earth who hasn't. :P
1:56 pm
pam

my mom would laugh. and dont worry I negotiate all the time at yard sales.
1:56 pm
artlady

Euterpe, I resisted for a LOOONNNGGG time. Jamie's mom got me hooked!
1:56 pm
musicmom

My 12 year old has figured this out. She doesn't get paid to do chores and if I want her to do something she has to BUT I am open to proposals to get more babble time
1:56 pm
Euterpe

Well, words and letters are more my thing. Numbers make me cringe.
1:57 pm
artlady

FMitch..if I have one it's at school and I can't get in until mid August becuz of construction. sorry!
1:57 pm
shutterbug

I dont get paid to do chores. we are a family, we work together to get things done.
1:57 pm
FMitch

Darn oh wel, I will wait patiently artlady
1:58 pm
bonkler

numbers are work, words are joy --> soduko free
1:58 pm
artlady

Sounds good, shutter.
1:58 pm
musicmom

Absolutely shutter that is the rule here to, but I also don't just spend money on the girls because they want something. They have to either earn it or take it for a Christmas or birthday present
1:58 pm
Euterpe

Haha. Good one bonkler. :)
1:59 pm
artlady

A mom after my own heart, music!
1:59 pm
artlady

My students have so many material things that they are spoiled.
1:59 pm
shutterbug

well, my mom doesnt either. so, I'll get it when I get money or my mom agrees to buy it. she plays to you know.
1:59 pm
artlady

Good for her, shutter. Did she register? (giggle, giggle)
2:00 pm
musicmom

I know artlady. I run into it a lot with college students we host. I can't believe how many of them have cars, computers, ipods etc and yet don't know how to do their own laundry
2:00 pm
shutterbug

I get money for selling stuff on ebay. when I get the money that I want to spend on babble I will. no, my mom is shutterbug. this is her account. we work together, remember? lol.
2:00 pm
musicmom

Shutter - are you allowed to tell us how old you are? I'm not trying to be voyeuristic so if she doesn't want you telling us that is fine.
2:01 pm
shutterbug

I am 13.
2:01 pm
artlady

Good for you, shutter! I tried to get my kids (and mom) interested, but it's not their thing.
2:01 pm
musicmom

Ahhhh a great age. I'm impressed that you have been babbling for as long as you have then.
2:02 pm
debbinla

i am too shutter - thats awesome
2:02 pm

How do we tell one shutter from the other? Confusing!

2:02 pm

my mom is interested but her computer connection is dial up and way slow. My sister and brother in law play. My 12 year old helps me sometimes.
2:02 pm
shutterbug

you cant artlady. my mom almost never posts anyway.
2:03 pm
musicmom

okay I have got to go back to the grid now. <virtually zipping my lips>
2:03 pm
shutterbug

we used to play, then we stopped for a while because dial up was too slow. now we have cable, and started playing again.
2:03 pm
musicmom

One more thing shutter- thank you for using proper grammar and spelling words out. I get tired of text speak that so many teen suse.
2:03 pm
Euterpe

Wow. I'm on dial-up and I find the game just fine.
2:04 pm
musicmom

I have told Sarah if she ever chats while here she has to do that!
2:04 pm
shutterbug

me too, I dont like the way some of the otherestalk either.
2:04 pm
artlady

My mother just got DSL, so maybe she'll start playing. She's out in the country and her connection is really slow.
2:04 pm

You are lucky euterpe

Shutter, you do your parents proud!
2:04 pm

2:05 pm
Euterpe

Well, I don't know if I'd consider myself lucky. I just think I'm used to things being slow. :P
2:06 pm

Because you are well spoken, polite, and self-ssured

babble is bad for my sleeping patterns... i'm always trying to find excuses to stay up until 1 a.m. [my flip time]... just to see the number of words, of course, and then 'just when i think i'm out, they pull me back in"... the words, of course!
2:27 pm

O.K. I'll admit I'm a dummy. What is the abbr for iron? Sorry & thanks.

betty - it's just practice - keep playing!
2:30 pm
goob

but if it were 6 am, i'd be late for my morning stuff every day! I'd be obsessed with the words i had missed... i'd have to print the grid and carry it with me throughout the day, sneak peaks at inopportune moments, and generally be useless to all!
2:30 pm
debbinla

hi hetty -- how are you feeling today???
2:30 pm
BettyAnne

You have all been so kind. I will certainly keep trying.
