Hi Haz, Ata, Sprite. This is a biggun, as the actress said...............
3:46 am
Haz1558

Hello sprite, Soodle Ata and silent observers.
3:46 am
sprite

yes, just what the doctor ordered
3:46 am
Haz1558

She's due another trim at the end of the month, this was just to keep her fresh and smelling respectable.
3:47 am
Atalante

I can't imagine SPangle ever looking unrespectable!
3:48 am
Haz1558

She's looking a bit bedraggled now until she dr5. Why does having a bath seem to get them all fidgety and wanting to run outside?
3:48 am
Atalante

lol oh yes. They prance a lot
3:49 am
Haz1558

It's even more amazing that they can contain them at the grooming place. Maybe they have a prancing room that they don't show to the humans.
3:49 am
Soodlebum

Cos they want to roll in the nearest muck. Buster is a menace after a bath.
3:50 am
Atalante

that would make sense, I think they would need one
3:50 am
sprite

we take away their wonderful smells and are surprised they run to replace them
3:50 am
Soodlebum

Hmmmm. Imagine the goings on in a prancing room for humans............

FM could do her rhythmical movement to musicin her Greek tunic.

3:53 am

er4 has been in a load of grids lately. He's saying hi to her.
3:57 am
Haz1558

Ata, have you looked on FB to see what changes are afoot with babble? I've seen a bit on twitter but are there any more details?
3:57 am
Atalante

oooo yes, drG has been putting screenshots up over the last few days
3:58 am
Haz1558

I've seen a couple - the new header and the new layout of the grid etc, but still intrigued about the new features.
3:58 am
Atalante

that's all he's really shown. and a secret new feature box under the grid
3:58 am
sprite

is he fixing the stupid cursor placing for chatting?
3:58 am
Dachef

fingers crossed for a more updated dictionary......
3:58 am
Haz1558

Yes, its the secret new feature box that intrigues.
3:59 am
Haz1558

Hello, Dachef. But what will people complain about if we can't slate enable?
3:59 am
Atalante

am very sad, he's making it ipad compatible but not ipod compatible
3:59 am
sprite

not really, Dachef, that would mean loads of wo5 that are valid now, wouldn't be anymore.
4:00 am
Haz1558

But would it not be awfully small in i-pod? I'd need to wear glasses just to see the grid.
4:01 am
Dachef

this version of enable is now 10 years out of date. Its been updated 3 times since then. I vote for the SOWPODS dictionary, which is the official Scrabble one.
4:01 am
Atalante

but the grid would fill the screen I would think, and you'd touch the letters. the chat log takes up half the screen really!
4:01 am
Haz1558

So i-podders would miss out on chat?
4:02 am
Atalante

well, on the ipod at the moment, you can use babble through safari, but it's hard to chat and grid, you have to really do one or the other
4:02 am
Atalante

just because of the small screen size
4:03 am
Haz1558

That makes sense.
4:03 am
sprite

guess not then
4:03 am
Haz1558

You'd probably not want to tackle a huge grid on i-pod anyway, but it would be useful if you're in transit, I suppose.
4:04 am
Atalante

oh yes, exactly. just nice to do the grids
4:05 am
sprite

could somebody please forward me the invitation to make suggestions?
4:06 am
Haz1558

Yes, I can do that -I take it you didn't get the original one?
4:06 am
sprite

nope I didn't, thankyou Haz
4:08 am
Haz1558

I've sent it to your binthere address.
4:08 am

thank you

You're welcome.

Hello everyone. Invitation? is that what people were talking about - a few 'old' Babblers saying they had gotten an email. I didn't receive one either.

4:14 am

also the possibility the spam filter ate the email. I can see all my mail on the server so it shouldn't happen, but life being life, it might have anyway.

Fellow Pro Babbler- I realized this morning that I've been neglecting Babble lately,and I'm thinking it's time I gussied the site up a bit. So I'masking for your feedback. I welcome any and all feedback. Let yourbrain juices flow! A few sample questions/topics: What do you like the most about Babble?What do you dislike the most about Babble?What feature(s) would you like to see added to Babble?How could the Babble community be strengthened? Your feedback can be nit-picky or can include pie-in-the-sky dreams.It's all good to me. Thanks and Happy Babbling! - Dr_GodBabble Overlord http://www.playbabble.com/ P.S. If you don't want me to email you with occasional Babble updateslike this, just reply to this email and let me know.

congrats gremlinn
4:26 am

It's either nurturing, sprite, or bossiness!

4:36 am

there is currently great angst that it won't be compatible with lickety. but it looks like he's including a lot of lickety's features
4:36 am
Sally-catlover

PS, you don't need to type out that link, just copy and paste it.
4:36 am
Atalante

Babble Overlord It will not, unfortunately, but I'm hoping to incorporate as much of Lickety's features into the new site. And I'm sure Lickety' is getting tired of doing all that work every day anyway. I know I would be. ;)
4:39 am
Haz1558

It's achieving the balance between babble the game that he founded and was loved for what it was for quite a while and babble the game that has evolved thanks to outside forces, for want of a better term.
4:39 am
Soodlebum

This may sound daft, but is Dr God aka Babble Overlord?
4:39 am
Atalante

yes, soodle
4:39 am
Haz1558

Dr God is the Babble Overlord, yes.
4:39 am
Atalante

and also with him having to earn money!
4:40 am
Haz1558

True.
4:40 am
Soodlebum

Well, you learn something new every day. And is Lickety just a benevolent ordinary player?
4:41 am
lynxxx

let's hope any changes do not make it too simple
4:42 am
lynxxx

Lickety is benevolent though not a player - however his wife MrPresident is
4:42 am
sprite

yes he is, Soodle
4:43 am
Soodlebum

What a nice guy. Without Lickety, I would have thrown my hat at Babble long ago.
4:43 am
Haz1558

I know what you mean, lynxxx, it still needs to retain a bit of difficulty.
4:43 am
Atalante

the only thing that disturbs me is that above the tile stats in the new version is something saying "click tiles for clues"
4:43 am
Haz1558

Mind you, people are inventing all sorts of ways to make things difficult for themselves. I foresee upside down and blindfolded nbt soon.
4:44 am
sprite

it would be nice if we could hide the tile stats, Ata?
4:44 am
Haz1558

Ooooh, hadn't noticed that. Maybe he'll hire babblers to sit and do nothing but give clues.
4:44 am
Dachef

blindfolded nbt took me 6 hours.
4:44 am

hi Kallia and gary

I'm sure he's been in touch, sprite, I know he cooperated when Lickety was developing his programme.

manic morning so been sat here last hour calmly playing to calm down has worked wonders
4:46 am

Im currently babbling with a completely blank keyboard - no letters on it at all. Its supposed to improve touchttyping skills, but I dont think I have the patience.
4:46 am

Lickety told be back then he didn't get any answers from drG, Haz. But my info might be outdated.
4:47 am
Haz1558

You need to focus, Dachef, regroup and use all the skills embedded in you as a stakeholder. Sorry, I've just been reading a council publication.
4:47 am
sprite

lol Dachef, can't you build it up step by step? learning touchtype should go finger by finger and row by row.
4:47 am

keep at it dachef it will become easier

I can imagine, Kallia. I do believe that your keeping your cat in your thoughts and heart will help, though. So maybe the not being able to focus on anything else is actually a good thing.

awww. How is your Tera?
5:33 am
herinfernallady

I am watching Being Human. Rather distrubing
5:36 am
sprite

terra is good but does not like this intense heat. Heat in the netherlands is always humid and thunderstormy. So having a permanent fur coat on isn't pleasant.
5:37 am
herinfernallady

Can you clip him?
5:39 am
sprite

not without ruining his coat, I think
5:39 am
herinfernallady

mmm
5:40 am
sprite

we removed all the old hair though, so his coat is thin and ready for summer. I think it is just that it went from rather cold to very hot at once. Not just the dogs have trouble coping, the people as well.
5:41 am
herinfernallady

Feed him froozen peas
5:41 am

I make him wet in the afternoon, he loves that. Cools down a lot. And he gets ice cubes after every walk. He loves them.

I am anxious to play the "new" babble when Dr. God gets it up and running.
7:08 am
Mom

{{Lynxxx}} hello
7:08 am
Norma

Hi lynxx
7:08 am
Norma

What is the New Babble ????
7:08 am
NonoNanette

I wasn't aware that he was working on a "new" babble
7:09 am
Anniebrook

Hi ((Mom)) is there a new Babble?
7:09 am
Anniebrook

hi lynxxxxie
7:09 am
Mom

Here is a link where you can see yesterday's teaser ... http://twitter.com/babbleoverlord and click on the twitpic link
7:09 am
Norma

How can you improve on "Perfection" ???
7:10 am
Mom

it will still be "babble" as we know it, just tweaking it and changing the layout some what
7:10 am
Mom

for those who have facebook, under the search, type in Babble Community and you can see it there as well.
7:11 am
Anniebrook

I dont have facebook or twitter..can I still see it from your link, Mom?
7:11 am
Mom

you sure can Annie
7:11 am
Mom

I don't have twitter either
7:11 am
Anniebrook

babble is perfect, norma is right..waaaah
7:12 am
Mom

so far he has moved the state and tiles to the right instead of underneath the grid. and there will still be the chat log
7:12 am
Scrabbler

Hello all. I thought the "new" Babble would be revealed today.
7:12 am
NonoNanette

there are words in the list with letters that arn't even in that grid pictured?
7:12 am
Mom

stat*
7:13 am
NonoNanette

morning Scrabs
7:13 am
Mom

Hi Scrabbler
7:13 am
Anniebrook

hi scrabbs
7:13 am
Mom

I woke up at 1:10 this morning thinking it would be as well. But alas, no, just 410 word total staring me in the face
7:13 am
Anniebrook

Does anyone know if Babble Expert will be affected?
7:13 am
Mom

Nono, those were just examples
7:14 am
NonoNanette

gosh i hope not Annie!
7:14 am
Mom

Annie, sit down ,,,, it will not be compatible with Lickety
7:14 am
Scrabbler

I think that Dr God will be eliminating the connection to Expert.
7:14 am
Anniebrook

Now I am sobbing openly
7:14 am
Mom

but he is going to try and incorporate as much from Lickety as he can
7:15 am
Mom

but if you saw the teaser on twitter above the stats it said to click on a tile for a clue
7:15 am
Scrabbler

(ANNIE)--we will adjust + help one another.
7:16 am
Mom

I had better set out the Puffs
7:16 am
Anniebrook

Dr_God is going to clue us? Hicup, hicup
7:17 am
Mom

someone also mentioned under the grid on the teaser there is a button to the right and they asked if it was a rotate button but he didn't answer that question
7:18 am
Mom

I think it might offer the first two letters as lickety does, just a guess
7:18 am
herinfernallady

I don't like that clue idea
7:19 am
Mom

if that is the case, we wouldn't have to use it. you will have to click the tile to get a clue
7:19 am
Mom

{{herin}} hello
7:19 am
Anniebrook

I hope there will still be the list
7:20 am
herinfernallady

hehehe Hello. I am watching naughty pointless movie
7:20 am
Anniebrook

I love Babble just the way it is..why change it?
7:20 am
Mom

he was hoping to have it up and running by day's end yesterday
7:20 am
Anniebrook

Mom, are you saying that Lickety will not be involved at all?
7:21 am
Norma

I can't cope without lickety ....
7:21 am
Mom

recently he said he sent out an email to babbler's asking for input. Although Dr. God, if you are listening, I didn't get an email
7:21 am
Anniebrook

Lickety program is brilliant.
7:21 am
Mom

let me get his exact wording Annie, be right back
7:21 am
Norma

I am with you Annie .... don't fix it if it isn't broke
7:21 am
lynxxx

Change is good - we were all horrfied by the last batch of changes he did to the grid but we got used to it quickly
7:21 am
Anniebrook

I didnt get an email either
7:21 am
Anniebrook

Lickety's
7:22 am
herinfernallady

Yah to pointless movies
7:22 am
lynxxx

me neither Annie
7:22 am
movieman

neither did i
7:23 am
Mom

Jill Evans asked him: Jill Evans I hope the new site will still be compatible with Lickety's Babble Expert!
7:23 am
Scrabbler

I got an e-mail from Dr God asking for input.
7:23 am
Mom

he replied: Babble Overlord
It will not, unfortunately, but I'm hoping to incorporate as much of Lickety's features into the new site. And I'm sure Lickety' is getting tired of doing all that work every day anyway. I know I would be. ;)
7:24 am
Norma

Does that mean we will have the clues as they are on Lickety's now .... "hopfully"
7:24 am
Anniebrook

Lickety is wonderful to be doing all the work and I appreciate him very much but I will still miss him.
7:24 am
movieman

If Babble Expert won't be compatible, I may have to consider giving up on the game
7:24 am
lynxxx

I can't see why it would be incompatible. Lickety program is just running the letters through a program, all automatic anyway
7:24 am
rubyfoo

hello everybody! I hope the changes arent't overwhelming! This is very hard for me as it is!
7:24 am
featherbee

he also said: It's been several years since I've done anything to it. Need to keep it fresh and exciting. And I need to try and get it to make money, so it can stay afloat. ;)
7:24 am

Especially if there's a 300+word grid

I'm starting to look for a dog, and know I want a mutt...
2:23 pm
jesdraggon

2:23 pm
jesdraggon

haha! that's hilarious. i actually answered the question you were asking!
2:24 pm
jesdraggon

really though; what's your living situation? apartment? big house? fenced yard? other animals? how much time will you be able to spend with the dog?
2:24 pm
Jellen

but I'd like a smaller dog than Molly was (pit bull mix), with a sweet temperament...
2:24 pm

Short hair

2:29 pm
jesdraggon

well, most of the terriers would fit in size-wise, and would definitely have energy for going on jogs with you or doing agility, that sort of thing.
2:30 pm
jesdraggon

schnauzer might be a bit lower energy than something like a rat terrier for being indoor most of the time.
2:30 pm
Jellen

I like terriers...are Jack Russells too hyper?
2:30 pm
jesdraggon

boston terrier or pug would be a good choice, i think, if you can handle the snoring.
2:30 pm
jesdraggon

or a frenchie
2:31 pm
Jellen

Snoring...would join the club, lol!
2:31 pm
jesdraggon

jacks tend to be pretty energetic; i like them, but they're the type of dog that would do really well if you take him to run marathons with you :)
2:31 pm
Jellen

One cat snores, too...
2:32 pm
Jellen

Err...nice walks?
2:32 pm
jesdraggon

pomeranians and pekingese tend to have good personalities, but would require more grooming
2:32 pm
jesdraggon

pug or boston or frenchie i'm thinking though.
2:33 pm
jesdraggon

and you might look at taking home one that's about 2 years old instead of a puppy, that cuts down on the energy demand (and saves some of your furniture!)
2:33 pm
Jellen

Thanks, I'll start looking in that direction...
2:33 pm
Jellen

Can you crate train at that age?
2:33 pm
jesdraggon

warning though; it's often difficult to find small dogs in rescue, they tend to not come in often and go fast
2:33 pm
jesdraggon

you can crate train anything
2:34 pm
jesdraggon

as long as you go about it right :)
2:34 pm
Jellen

Cool...didn't train Molly...
2:34 pm
jesdraggon

just don't expect to toss them in a kennel first off and have them like it. build up slowly.
2:35 pm
jesdraggon

kennel should be their happy place, so never use it as a punishment. start with an open kennel, no door. put the dog bed and all the toys in the kennel so the dog can go in and out whenever he wants.
2:35 pm
jesdraggon

kennel should be their happy place, so never use it as a punishment. start with an open kennel, no door. put the dog bed and all the toys in the kennel so the dog can go in and out whenever he wants.
2:35 pm
jesdraggon

feed him in the kennel, that often helps.
2:36 pm
Jellen

Food = happy. Got it!
2:36 pm
jesdraggon

once he's going readily in and out for breakfast and dinner, put the door back on the kennel, and when he goes in for breakfast, close the door.
2:36 pm
Jellen

Toys = happy
2:36 pm
jesdraggon

as SOON as he stops eating, before he notices that he's stuck, open the door.
2:37 pm
jesdraggon

do that for a couple days, so there's no stress about the door closing behind him.
2:37 pm
jesdraggon

then start delaying opening the door a few minutes.
2:38 pm
jesdraggon

if he whines or barks, do NOT open the door. dogs are really weird, and the first time you open the door when he whines, he will learn that whining opens the door, even if you've opened it while he's quiet 5 dozen times before.
2:38 pm
jesdraggon

stand quietly out of sight until he pauses to take a breath; the instant he shuts up, open the door.
2:39 pm
bichon

one of the best methods of house breaking a dog is to have leir lead tied to your belt. They will follow you around and if they make a motion to squat in the house, you have them there to pick up and take outside
2:39 pm
jesdraggon

gradually extend the amount of time the door is closed until he just is quiet in the kennel and waits for you to let him out.
2:39 pm
redturtlehead

I had one Dog love the Crate, but Teulu coudl not stand it after he had a miserable diarrhea episode once when I was at work...it sprayed out of the crate and all over the walls. Luckily he doen't need it now.
2:40 pm
jesdraggon

especially at first, always have something good in the kennel, every time you put them in.
2:40 pm
jesdraggon

a meal, or a treat or toy that they only ever get in the kennel
2:40 pm
jesdraggon

then pick that treat up when you let them out, and they don't get it back until the next time they're kenneled
2:40 pm

2:41 pm
Jellen

Wow, I'm learning lots! Such wisdom babblers have!
2:41 pm
jesdraggon

my hound dog will open the crate door and let herself in now; and i didn't start kenneling her until she was over a year old. and she'd had the lovely experience of being at the humane society in the very loud and crowded kennels there for about a month before i took her home.
2:43 pm
Jellen

I may break down and get a bigger dog, but I couldn't lift Molly easily, either for baths or transport....
2:43 pm
sciencegeek

de 7 please
2:43 pm
jesdraggon

teaching the dog that the kennel is a happy place can come in REALLY handy later--not just for kenneling while you're out of the house for several hours, but if you have to travel, they're less likely to get upset if they have their "den" along with them in the hotel room or at a strange house, and many boarding facilities will let you put it in the run with them if you ever have to board him.

Hi, hurshy
2:44 pm

hi
2:44 pm
jesdraggon

tangentially, a really good thing to do with any dog is to get an emery board/nail file, and play with their toes every night. pick a time when the dog is sleepy and happy, and make it quiet low-stress.
2:44 pm
Jellen

Makes me want to get on petfinder.com right now!
2:45 pm
redturtlehead

Or you could just go over to the humane socienty.
2:45 pm
jesdraggon

hold the foot (do not let go if the dog pulls back, that teaches them to pull away) and reward calm behavior (not fussing or crying) with treats or petting (sometimes helps to have someone else with treats)
2:45 pm
Jellen

Oh, that's good...wish I'd done that with the cats...
2:45 pm
redturtlehead

jes, that is a very very good idea.
2:46 pm
jesdraggon

when they will let you hold the feet calmly, start filing the nails. you don't have to worry about pinching or cutting too close if the dog fusses, and if he gets his nose down or licks at it, he won't cut himself.
2:46 pm
jesdraggon

and it makes things MUCH easier when you do have to trim the nails.
2:46 pm
wildcat17

same with their mouths .. you have to be able to take their food away without having them growl or bite
2:46 pm
Jellen

red, I'm at the hospital in Springfield, MO...
2:46 pm

It has taken the entire 4 years of teulus life now to have him let me train teulu to let me do the nails...

I take Bisky to the groomer every two months and they do his nails. The sidewalk does the rest
2:47 pm
Jellen

He's doing pretty well...not in pain, which makes a big difference!
2:47 pm
jesdraggon

obedience classes are great--as much for the socialization skills and learning to focus on you when other stuff is going on as because you need someone to teach you how to teach a dog to sit!
2:47 pm
Jellen

lessee. other things about little dogs. oh! teeth! assume that you will need to have them in to have a full dental cleaning annually. the farther away they are from looking like a coyote, the worse dental problems we expect.
2:54 pm
jesdraggon

brushing at home helps, too--your vet should have low-fluoride, flavored toothpastes to use.
2:54 pm
Jellen

Dental cleaning...check!

many rescues will already have microchipped the dog before adopting it out, but if they don't, i recommend it.

jes...how much does a full dental cleaning cost in your neck of the woods?
2:55 pm
hurshy

let us not have any ceremonies, sammysmom... ** *****
2:55 pm
jesdraggon

if she ever winds up at a shelter or lost, it really increases your chances of getting her back
2:56 pm
jesdraggon

way WAY less than it should, pini. runs about $160 with pre-anesthetic blood.
2:56 pm
sammysmom

thanks hurshy
2:56 pm
Pinikula

OK (better than what the vet I talked to wants)
2:57 pm
jesdraggon

if you go down to Spokane (about 50 miles away) it runs $350-500. and I've seen folks from Seattle bring in records/bllls quoting $500-$700 (those usually include dental x-rays, which we don't have the equipment to do here)
2:57 pm
jesdraggon

more if they need any extractions or anything
2:58 pm
Pinikula

I was quoted a base of 400-600 + everything else :(

3:00 pm
Pinikula

is there anything a dog can chew on and serve double duty? (i.e., serving as a toy and dental tool like rope or something?)
3:00 pm
jesdraggon

we scrape by with really low bills on a lot of things here, because we're pretty small and don't have a lot of outgoing money--which has disadvantages; we'll have to raise prices on a bunch of stuff if we want to upgrade our x-ray machine or buy a new probe for the ultrasound, for instance.
3:01 pm
jesdraggon

there are lots of dental chews out there. avoid the nylabones, though; they are so hard that some dogs can fracture teeth on them.
3:01 pm
Pinikula

btw: how's Rascal doing?
3:01 pm
jesdraggon

you can find enzyme-infused rawhides, that kind of thing. none of it really replaces brushing though, any more than eating carrots replaces brushing for you :P
3:01 pm
Pinikula

* note: no nylabones *
3:01 pm
jesdraggon

speaking of, carrot sticks and canned green beans make good, low-fat treats.
3:02 pm
Pinikula

I thought rawhide wasn't good for dogs?
3:02 pm
jesdraggon

last i heard, rascal's doing great, but it's been a while since i heard from his new home.
3:02 pm
Pinikula

good to know!
3:02 pm
Pinikula

Koda LOVES baby carrots
3:02 pm
jesdraggon

eh. if they swallow the whole rawhide they can choke on it. but if they chew on it, it's fine. just make sure it's an appropriate size for the dog (no knots just the right size to swallow at a gulp!)
3:03 pm
inge

op
3:04 pm
Pinikula

so get something the size of his ears? larger? smaller?
3:04 pm
jesdraggon

mine don't get rawhides much, because my hound thinks all rawhides everywhere are her personal and private property, and she will kick anybody's butt that says otherwise.

the kitten was frustrating because they called twice before they decided to come in, then took 3 times as long to get to the clinic as they said (15 minutes is not the same as 45!) and then the kitten clawed my hand up nicely.

What do you think of the proposed changes to babble?
4:23 pm
Atalante

I'm sure DrG wants to make it better, but personally I'm quite happy as it is. But he has to make money with it, so he needs to make it do that
4:24 pm
jacq

changes???
4:24 pm
Dorens

he did a great job with it so far, I trust his "improvements" will be just fine
4:25 pm
Soodlebum

Ditto. Not broken, don't fix, is my motto. Ermmmm, is this going to cost us money? (fumbling in purse, hunting down the sides of armchairs for loose change....)
4:26 pm
Atalante

he said that no old pros will have to pay anything, but that there might be things we might choose to "upgrade" to
4:26 pm
Dorens

can't speak for anyone but me... I certainly get more enjoyment out of this game every single day than I have from things that have cost far more...if he needs a few more bucks, I would surely be willing to "upgrade"
4:27 pm
jacq

define old pro? does he mean chronologically?
4:27 pm
Soodlebum

'Mutters' will have to dig deeper into sofas , under beds, and old coat pockets for spare coins.
4:27 pm
Dorens

i would imagine he means anyone who is already pro
4:27 pm
Atalante

as in someone who is subscribed now, to this site
4:27 pm

Depending on what model of mobile phone you have, River, you may be able to use that to babble?
4:53 pm
Riverdance

I know they have one in the pediatric ICU - I used it two weeks ago - but he may go to the regular unit instead - depends on beds - i want something to do other than read during the 8-10 hour procedure
4:53 pm

ohhh i dn't know about there but when my oldest daughter was expecting she was rushed into hospital and while they were assessing her we looked at the pricing for tv and internet in her ward and it was horrendously expensive

That ro6.18 is commonly used as past tense here - not in the US?
9:29 pm
Riverdance

reload them on lickety - that has happened to me with my own imput in the wrong place
9:29 pm
Jacula

New site makes Lickety redundant, if I read it all correctly. Might also make we cluers redundant, too. AND YOU CAN ROTATE THE GRID.
9:30 pm
lbdawger

not commonly, Lynxxx. but it is used
9:30 pm

redundant cluers?!?!?! What is the world coming to?
9:30 pm

I don't use Licekty Pro, but I do sometimes use his clues list, just like I used Jack's in the past. These days, I find I'm doing the list if Lickety is absent.

yes we do have some awesome clues - fun and even as challenging as the word
9:32 pm
lbdawger

is it not in a rightful place now?
9:32 pm

I know there's a 'community' button' coming, but the chog is more fun. Wonder if we get edit/delete buttons on that?
