hope all are doing okay, haven't been in much for the last couple of weeks, cause I broke my arm, and typing on the keyboard is a chore with one hand. They say they can't cast it because it's right at the top of the humerus going into the ball up there. Not separated, so I just have to not move it for like six weeks, sigh. Hugs to all, I'll be back.

After Wordle, my new favorite is stardle.org/. You have to guess the name of an actor or actress instead of a word. I think it's harder than wordle but I have gotten it right the first 2 days I have played.
6:54 am
ItalianGreyhound

A pop-up ad?
7:30 am
Meatball421

why does it say "spam" does not appear in the puzzle? Am I blind?
7:43 am
bichon

spam is not an accepted word in the Babble dictionary
7:43 am
hokie carla

spam is not a word on the enable word list. it was merely a proper noun back then. apparently there was an attempt to add it to this game that didn't quite work. so it always says it's not there when it clearly is, so you are not blind.
7:44 am
hokie carla

name that proper noun - tree company with orange trucks
7:54 am
bichon

Asplundh?
7:54 am
hokie carla

Meatball421 is asking about spam, that is soooooo appropriate :)
7:58 am
hokie carla

they are like charcoal gray with blue writing, and that's a real word in the grid that I didn't have, thx.

in alice and wonderland, they had a tea party. the mad hatter referred to the fact that hats were dyed and the lead in them made the hatters, the people who worked with the dyes, go insane. lead in the dyes would cause this. the dyes were toxic.

9:21 am
hokie carla

would love to know what indica and indicia are from yesterday, more why were they included?
9:29 am
hurshy

indicia are things that indicate, i believe
9:29 am
hurshy

never seen indica, but merriam-webster says it is a variety of cannabis
9:31 am
hokie carla

my point is both words are odd inclusions since he excludes way more common words
9:31 am
hurshy

yeah go figure
9:32 am
hokie carla

only 2 words left now for queen bee. I don't know if I'll find them or not.
9:32 am

44 left here. guess I will try to do something productive for a while.
9:33 am

the version of the bee that i found elsewhere only goes up to genius

ok wow then i need 7 more for that
9:36 am
hokie carla

I already tried making innkeeper a verb 😜
9:37 am
hurshy

i was annoyed that "kipped" didn't count, it's british slang for slept
9:38 am
hokie carla

well, he definitely doesn't include british slang
9:38 am
hurshy

well i mean how do you decide when a word is slang and when it isn't, anyway?
9:39 am
hurshy

i still need 3 there but i found a ke4 that you might not have
9:39 am
hokie carla

it's all very arbitrary. the editor is a guy in his 20s who picks and chooses the words allowed.

maybe nan gets the other bakery than what we get here on the east coast
10:41 am

they tasete like Dare cookies here - which also are dry and tasteless, other than the icing in the middle which is mostly just sugar, flavoring and water
10:41 am
rururocks

I only buy the somosa (sp?) when the kids come to my door. I don't buy from them outside the grocery store
10:41 am
hokie carla

oh, it's caramel delites instead of samoas
10:41 am
MollyL

All the Girl Guides sell are chocolate and vanilla sandwich cookies and thin mints.
10:42 am
rururocks

oh samoas
10:42 am

that's what we ge, molly - I will buy the thin mints just to support them, but not the sandwich cookies

10:43 am

and girl guides is a thing? I thought that was from the 50s. never heard of it being real since I've been alive and never seen any cookies from them.
10:43 am
MollyL

I just give the scouts money. That way I am not tempted by the cookies.
10:43 am

Girl Guides are Canada's version of Girl Scouts
10:44 am

I do that with the boy scouts and popcorn.

no moon doodles by professional "artists" who paint like 3rd graders

Surely that kind of word emerged after the ancient Enable word list was last updated.

it doesn't say "was not found in the dictionary". That's odd

11:52 am

omg, how have you been here this long and never seen the spam discussion, mael?
11:53 am

wow, really? I've been here ten years!

i always try it but I've never noticed it was odd like that
11:53 am

some years back a player said she was writing a paper (dissertation?) on the culture of babble....wonder if she ever finished that...
11:59 am
MollyL

A dissertation on the culture of a word game chat board?
12:00 pm
penquis

yes, i guess....not sure if it was a dissertation....memory is spotty....
12:00 pm
mael

I mean, it's valuable insight into the psyche of people :)
12:00 pm
penquis

it is sort of like a community that has evolved over time....with rules, language oddities, etc....
12:01 pm
MollyL

There are some psyches here that could be the entire focus of the paper
12:01 pm
mael

I think it's cool, personally
12:01 pm
penquis

i think it was more of a sociological study,..
12:02 pm
mael

yeah, I said psyche but I meant more the social aspect of it
12:10 pm
MollyL

It is one of the remaining internet communities from when internet communities first started. There have been babies born, children grown and gone, deaths of long time players.
12:10 pm
penquis

yes...relatively long history....
12:12 pm
MollyL

I can see writing a sociology paper on it but it is not in-depth enough for a dissertation.
12:13 pm
mael

in depth is a matter of research, though
12:17 pm
MollyL

I can see using Babble as an example of the changing culture of the internet, but not as the sole topic of a dissertation. For one thing, there is no way to "research" Babble
12:21 pm
mael

I mean, like any other sociological research
12:21 pm
mael

you interview players
12:21 pm
mael

you look up stats and dates and trends
12:22 pm
MollyL

Okay mael. You win. When you find a sociology professor who will accept that as research, let me know.
12:23 pm
penquis

why is this an argument?...
12:23 pm
penquis

also, chat logs can be accessed for past dates....i am sure those could be analyzed....it's just an interesting thought to me....
12:23 pm
MollyL

It's not. It's a disagreement.
12:24 pm
mael

I only mean that it's possible to research an online community, nothing more
12:24 pm
mael

"research" is just gathering information in a diligent way
12:25 pm
mael

I've read plenty of dissertations on fan communities, for example, it's a popular topic
12:25 pm
penquis

i am down to 52....need a break....bbl to finish....bye all....
12:26 pm
mael

bye pen!
12:28 pm
MollyL

Have you read a dissertation on one specific fan community? That is all I was saying. Fan communities is a broad topic. A dissertation solely on Babble is too narrow a scope. Just my opinion.
12:29 pm
mael

yes? they have dissertations even on ONE single fanfic, never mind fan communities. You can find something to write about anything, really :)
12:32 pm
mael

because the dissertation wouldn't be about babble qua babble, it would be about how babble reflects X or Y trends in social media use and what the author thinks it proves about internet audiences or whatever
12:33 pm
mael

I wouldn't write it. but I can absolutely see a fascinating dissertation there :)
12:37 pm
MollyL

That is what I meant. The dissertation wouldn't be about Babble (too narrow a scope) but use Babble as an example of those X and Y trends. That is what I have been saying all along.
12:41 pm
mael

but that's a dissertation about babble
12:41 pm
mael

in that the research would be about the babble community
12:41 pm
mael

then you talk about how that relates to the world, but again, that's any dissertation
12:43 pm
MollyL

Didn't you just say it wouldn't be a dissertation about Babble?
12:44 pm
mael

sure, not about "Babble is an online game! let me tell you about babble!" and nothing else
12:44 pm
mael

but no dissertation is just descriptive, right? It's always an analysis
12:45 pm
mael

otherwise it's not a dissertation
12:46 pm
mael

I just think it's possible to research, well, anything. There is data and there are logs, you could track plenty of things if you wanted.

as someone who's read a lot of the early chat, I think a great story could be told about the society here and how it's changed over the years, as well as the how gameplay, etiquette, and rules have evolved to what it is today.
12:48 pm

I entered a word in Babble, and it is valid [shows up in and shows 191 words, but it doesn't show up in the word list as entered--even after trying 6 times...what gives, and how to fix?
8:41 pm

Maybe try refreshing the page (or closing it and then reopening it), then re-enter it if it still isn't in the list.
