Frances...there is no "right" way...I'm just going to have some suggestions for making cluing more uniform and maybe easier for some players to understand

douglas - it's in the "no boxes" version complete with af's
1:02 am

nm, I was looking at yesterday's clues
1:02 am

1:02 am

maybe a few standardised clues for the most popular words angel??
1:03 am
jillibus

I loke the various ways clues are given
1:03 am
Angelsong

not possible, I don't think, mouldy
1:03 am
sprite

Angel, please please include the suggestion that spelling out words is NOT nice clueing?
(Nor entering the chatroom with giving a word away like I did...)
1:03 am
jillibus

*like
1:03 am
Angelsong

exactly, sprite.
1:04 am
Frances

I like the fact that three people can give very different clues for the same word and they all make sense.
1:04 am
Krys10

also, i don't know if i'm the only one, but i really prefer clues that are based on definitions so i can learn the words better... usually i ask for definitions clues
1:04 am
Krys10

yeah, it's interesting we all have our own style
1:04 am
mouldy

and always put the stats in the clue, so we know which word is being clued
1:05 am
Krys10

the rebus-style clue is a trend that started sometime in the last year or so
1:05 am
Krys10

good one, mouldy
1:05 am
Angelsong

just as in many things pertaining to Babble, there are many approaches...some better than others.

1:05 am
mouldy

good points fran and krys
1:05 am
sprite

I like all kinds of clues, defs or cryptic ones or clues that cut up the word in pieces. I also like the variety of clues. I just don't like the "snake, first vowel, cross, second vowel" kinda clues.
1:05 am
Krys10

concur
1:06 am
Krys10

douglas - well, then, give them plantains! with honey...
1:06 am
tazpink

sprite i do not even mind that style of clue
1:06 am
Angelsong

ditto, sprite...I hate "snake letter" clues!
1:06 am
Frances

I agree sprite
1:07 am
Karen

I like them when I'm totally stuck.
1:07 am

can anyone please give me a clue for the sa 6/33
1:07 am

I always think: well, if that is clueing, just say S A T E and be done with it.
1:07 am
Angelsong

there's a Hawaiian word in the grid...
1:07 am
Krys10

or post a link to dictionary.com or something
1:07 am
Krys10

1:07 am

yeah but those clues - well ya might as well just go search through the word lists
1:08 am

lol, I agree sprite. I've thought that many a time. It's one reason I don't chat a lot.
1:08 am

1:12 am

Krys10

still looking no clues yet please
1:12 am
tazpink

sprtie might you have a clue for k6 the Japanese one
1:13 am

Angel, one more suggestion: that people asking for clues take a little time to consider them after getting them... and not say like 20 seconds later: "I don't get it, other clue please"
I hate that :)

It's not that it isn't a word, but it would probably properly be capitalised, and therefore not accepted by enable.

6:58 am

LOL Hi Dachef I think kth is referring to the f4/7 that follows that one.

Sam

the grid would be 0k without them
8:19 am

The ka 6/36 is a Hawaiian word. You may not know what it means, but you've probably heard the English expression which uses it--"The Big Ka****", which means the head honcho or the person incharge
8:19 am

Haz1558

ar4/8 - sounds vaguely like a country (but is spelt entirely differently) - look at the points value.
9:56 am
Haz1558

The other one is strange to me, hurshy, although it has a cat like structure, so should appeal to you.
9:57 am

Okay - try pu4/6 - the first three letters a play on words, then a vowel. It has the first three letters of the pu6 if that is any help.
10:04 am

10:06 am
raelite

did you go to the abkhazi garden?
10:06 am
AprilD

I think we did raelite
10:06 am
raelite

yes, it is very popular, but because it does not have tour bus parking, not everyone gets to see it
10:06 am
AprilD

though, I can't remember. I know that sounds familiar, but all gardens do, I read alot about them.
10:07 am
raelite

there are also the gardens at Hatley Castle and the Kiwanis park
10:07 am
AprilD

the one in my pictue was really a display garden for their art, they had a shop where they sold their paintings
10:08 am
AprilD

we went to the school site where there are like 200 acres
10:08 am
AprilD

that was probably the castle, cuz it was a castle!
10:08 am

it was enormous!
10:09 am
Haz1558

up6/27 doesn't appear in your list...
10:10 am
Munner

You need fa 6/30
10:10 am
Haz1558

fa6/30 also needs to be included
10:10 am
mattygroves

Care to clue, Haz?
10:11 am
Haz1558

ao6/18 deserves a place.
10:11 am
Munner

fa 6/30 is Latin plural
10:11 am
mattygroves

Got the AO now, Haz, thanks...
10:11 am
Haz1558

up6/27 - up plus a reworking of the one who weeds. It is a very strangely structured word!
10:12 am
mattygroves

One who weeds?
10:12 am
ConXshun

haz - am I really stupid or what? how do you fit the wild cat in with the ar?
10:12 am

10:13 am
ConXshun

up + fish eggs with h in the middle
10:13 am
Haz1558

You're confusing two clues, ConXshun. ar5/12 features the headgear, pu4/6 is the word that resembles the wild cat, except for one consonant.
10:14 am

Ta 6\33 : Ta**** (狸 or タヌキ, ) is often mistakenly translated as raccoon or badger, but ta**** s are in fact raccoon dogs (Nyctereutes procyonoides), a canid species native to Japan. Ta****s have been part of Japanese mythology since ancient times. The mythical ta**** is reputed to be mischievous and jolly, a master of disguise and shapeshifting, but somewhat gullible and absent-minded.
