Title: Change one thing word game
Post by: hidden on January 20, 2007, 11:03:19 PM
The object is to change one letter ONLY, and make a new word. You can drop a letter or add a letter, but only change one thing. You have to keep it going until no one can make another word. You CANNOT play off of your own word. NO PROPER NOUNS AND NO ACRONYMS ALLOWED! Each word played must be able to be verified at DICTIONARY.com. Latin botanical definitions will no longer be accepted.

When no one can make another word. That's the end of the game. The last successful person is the winner. 
Example:
player 1-dark
player 2-dart
player 3-tart

Also, you can't repeat a word that was previously used. Ex: word words word wouldn't work. If you want to make sure that your word was not previously used you can use the "search this thread" button at the top of the game thread.

clarifications by samrc:
- no wandering letters.  (Ex: pets can not become pest.)   Request for the rule (http://samisite.com/forum/index.php?topic=37.msg9220#msg9220)
- no abbreviations.  (Ex: lbs and lb     like acronyms, abbreviations aren't true words)      Request for the rule (http://samisite.com/forum/index.php?topic=37.msg9220#msg9220)
- no hyphenated words. (ex: all-day)  (Discussion about this issue here (http://samisite.com/forum/index.php?topic=37.msg12869#msg12869)) and here too (http://samisite.com/forum/index.php?topic=37.msg14312#msg14312)
- words beginning with capital letters should not be used since they are proper nouns which are disallowed in original game definition.
- must find the word in the SEARCH on Dictionary.com not just in an example or sentence (ex: wattler is fine, twattles is not)  (Discussion about this issue here (http://samisite.com/forum/index.php?topic=37.msg9693#msg9693))
- no Prefix/Suffix only words (examples:  pre-, re-, mis-, dis-, -er, -ment...) which are shown in dictionary.com with a - before or after the word. These can not be used alone in a sentence.  (Discussion about this issue here (http://samisite.com/forum/index.php?topic=37.msg9229#msg9229))
- medical terms ok if they appear in regular word search on dictionary.com and follow the same rules as above ie not abbreviation or prefix/suffix etc.   (Discussion about this issue here (http://samisite.com/forum/index.php?topic=37.msg11451#msg11451))
- An S CAN be used in the game to create a plural, but in the event no following word can be proposed, the winner of the game will be the poster of the previous post, where that post is the singular of the final post.   Note that this rule would not apply to every case where an s is added as the last letter, only where it creates a plural. For example, stay > stays would be OK, because stay, and stays can be a verb (I know it can also be a singular and plural noun, but not exclusively)   Discussion about this issue (http://samisite.com/forum/index.php?topic=37.msg13631#msg13631)

RICK:
  topline
  topliner
In my understanding, the word cannot win a game if the s is added to the current word to make a plural. So I think toplines would have been legitimate. The word which would not have been legitimate is topliners.  Also, another point: I think the plural s can be played, and the previous word only wins if the plural s word cannot be followed by another word (ie, the plural s word cannot finish the game as the winner).  Discussion/agreement about this issue (http://samisite.com/forum/index.php?topic=37.msg16629#msg16629)

ooops I just read that little recap   :-[

ok theN brail      -- I dont' know if i can play this I probably won't be able to remember if its been used or not lol
If I got that one wrong after just checking -- I'll go play my invadazoids instead hehe

Sam - I guess as expert I don't have the ability to make something a sticky post - thats ok but wondering if like when you have games or for some things where people might need to be reminded wha tis going on if you would make the first post sticky

I stared an ABCs of web mastering in another topic but it would probably help if that were a sticky post so as new peeps came on board they would know what was going on ,, is that how it works?

you can't reuse the exact word but a variation is fine.  just has to show as a word in the dictionary section of dictionary.com.  On another forum this game is stalled out.  someone won by using a real word that couldn't be changed.  The prize is that you get to pick the next starting word.  he picked racecar and there were another 6 or 8 changes before someone pointed out that although racecar has a result in a search it shows as two words and not only that but all the following changes were two words too.

HOLD IT GO BACK! 
MENTOL?    Can't find it in ENGLISH.  Appears to be a foreign translation of Menthol.

Does that mean that the last word is Rick's:
mentors
Title: Re: Change one thing word game
Post by: hidden on January 29, 2007, 02:57:59 PM
Sam is correct. Mentol is not an English word according to our official dictionary :Dictionary.com http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/mentol (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/mentol)
"Mentol" is common to several European languages, having the same meaning as English "menthol"

So, as Sam says, back to mentors

Don't think you can have "thrifts" either. It is not a legitimate word according to dictionary.com

that is really odd.  A type of financial institution is refered to as a Thrift.  So one would assume that if there are two or more of them they would be thrifts.  I didn't even look at dictionary.com, I just applied the rule for a plural noun  ???

I'm back, did anyone miss me?  7 days in the hospital got home Tuesday night and this evening is the first time i've been able to sit up at the desk.  I was being treated for an upper respiratory infection.  Turns out I have congestive heart failure.  My pulse was 180 and my heart valves weren't opening in the correct sequence.  With medication I should recover though.

Welcome back Jim.
Try to take it easy.

I know that is easy to say but hard to do.
Due to serious health issues I have had to scale back what I do the last few years.
Some times I forget and over do it and then the wife gets mad  :rules:
And my body tells me to wise up  :-[

Hey Jim.... Rotten diagnosis!  Took someone very special to me back in 1987.  They can do wonders now though.  The main key is to not overdo!  Behave!

Turtle, I can understand why your wife tries to reign you in a bit.  :D   
You follow the XARA lifestyle slogan:  "Can't is not an option!"

looks like "tilt" was in a post on January 21 in the first thread.

You started this thread on Feb 16.  Looks like about 270 words or so and still going.

this is a good one.  I've always thought it was #1.  turns out mead can be either alcoholic or non-alcoholic ?????? 

–noun
1.   an alcoholic liquor made by fermenting honey and water.
2.   any of various nonalcoholic beverages.

Neither flos or flosh show in the Merriam Webster dictionary.
dictionary.com has flos as an ICELANDIC word, and flosh is only found in a medical dictionary!

SO....????
Title: Re: Change one thing word game
Post by: hidden on February 20, 2008, 02:43:43 PM
flos - I don't think there were any restrictions on the language.

flosh - first definition on dictionary.com about 1/2 way down the page.

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/flosh (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/flosh)

\Flosh\, n. [Cf. G. fl["o]sse a trough in which tin ore is washed.] (Metallurgy) A hopper-shaped box or ?nortar in which ore is placed for the action of the stamps. --Knight.

Since we have waited a while on this point, I will set it back to accept the earlier posts and continue as though there was no question

SPLASH WAS LAST WORD posted by Etienne and think that it may be the end of that line unless someone can come up with a REAL word.... :D


Quote
Splish splash, I was takin' a bath
Long about a Saturday night
A rub-a-dub, just relaxin' in the tub
Thinkin' everything was alright
Well, I stepped out the tub, put my feet on the floor
I wrapped the towel around me and I
Opened the door, and then I
Splish, splash... I jumped back in the bath.
Well how was I to know there was a party going on?

They was a-splishin' and a'splashin'
Reelin' with the feelin', movin' and a'groovin'
Rockin' and a'rollin', yeah

Bing bang, I saw the whole gang
Dancin' on my living room rug, yeah!
Flip flop, they was donin' the bop
All the teens had the dancin'
But there was lollipop with a Peggy Sue
Good Golly, Miss Mally was-a even there, too!
A- well-a, splish splash, I forgot about the bath
I went and put my dancin' shoes on, yay...

I was a rollin' and a strollin', reelin' with the feelin',
Moving and a groovin', splishin' and a splashin', yeah!

Yes, I was a-splishin'' and a splashin'...
I was a-rollin' and a-strollin'...

Yeah, I was a-movin' and a-groovin'
We was a-reelin' with the feelin'
We was a-rollin' and a-strollin'
Movin' with the groovin' splish splash, yeah!

Title: Re: Change one thing word game
Post by: hidden on September 01, 2008, 09:27:25 AM
I don't think it has a meaning. It's a town in Wisconsin and just fit so I typed it. If you take route 23 west from Oshkosh to Rochester one drives through it. Are names allowed? Here is a replacement if not:

ripens
Title: Re: Change one thing word game
Post by: hidden on September 01, 2008, 05:41:00 PM
Hmmm, I don't think names can be used, but I guess we would have to ask the game originator, Jim, to be sure.

Anyhow, you have given us a tough assignment with "ripens". Still thinking.... :banghead:
Title: Re: Change one thing word game

Men



(My mom named my brother Jamie, often a girl's name. Then a couple years later I came along. She got flack from other women, especially the older ones, when we were little for her inappropriate naming!  When I introduce myself as SAM, the usual response is "that must be short for something".  I chuckle and offer my middle name if it would be more suitable: RAE, pronounced as RAY.  Most people raise brows and tell me my mom must have wanted a boy.  Nope. My mom has a sense of humor that I really appreciate! rofl  In reality, I was named after one of the most beautiful women ever! I was actually named after a song sung by Bing Crosby to Grace Kelly "I love you Samantha" in the movie "High Society".)

Hi Tony, you can only change one thing, but you changed two!   :oops:

box

Beautiful dog. I used to have a German Shepherd too. He was the greatest dog you could ever wish for. When we were preparing to live in China, we arranged for a relative to look after him. But it seems he did not want that, so he died 2 weeks before we were due to leave. He was only about 10 years old, so we are convinced he chose to die rather than live without us.

Sorry, it was involuntary, it seems that I was typing at the same time with Sami... but she is closer and get first!!
I was replying to the word "fox"

This is Guzy II (Guzy I lived with me for 15 years, he was my companion during my youth).
Guzy II is three and 1/2 years old and it is really amazing how we understand each other. I spend the whole day alone with him since I work at home and he has become the only friend I have had since we moved here in Italy.

Sorry for the OT

Do we allow acronyms?

However what it seems like in the computer world after reading a few articles is that btoa is spoken like it sounds and I would guess to the people working with it, then it has become a word not an acronym??? But then that would mean something like a JPG would be a word since we say "jaypeg" like it is a word not an acronym. Hmm this may take some head scratching..  ???

Sheesh a tough call or wha?

Wha? "An abbreviation often used on blogs and forums meaning What?" lol
Title: Re: Change one thing word game
Post by: hidden on December 02, 2008, 07:27:09 AM
I thought this would stump you as it stumped me too. I will confess how it happened. Rick is partly right. I was entering 'bota' (the word for a leather bottle often seen by Spanish peasants drinking wine whilst working on farmlands) in the dictionary and mistyped it and to my surprise it is actually a word so I used it for this game. It is recognized as a word our rules at dictionary dot com. I know it as an acronym from way back when, (not an abbreviation which is BTA for the 'B to A' = 'Binary to ASCII') and found it here:

h**p://dictionary.reference.com/browse/btoa

If you don't accept it, it is OK because it's just a game. Here is another word if you want to continue: boat

ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS:
Quote
Do we allow acronyms?
Nope.

Quote
Well actually I am not sure where the rules are written down, but it makes sense to me!
Rules are always defined in 1st post of any game thread. 
Any modifications to rules should be made to that post for best reference.

Jim started this game with this instruction:   :police:  :rules: :police:
Quote
The object is to change one letter ONLY, and make a new word. You can drop a letter or add a letter, but only change one thing. You have to keep it going until no one can make another word. You CANNOT play off of your own word. NO PROPER NOUNS AND NO ACRONYMS ALLOWED! Each word played must be able to be verified at DICTIONARY.com. Latin botanical definitions will no longer be accepted.

When no one can make another word. That's the end of the game. The last successful person is the winner.
Example:
player 1-dark
player 2-dart
player 3-tart

Also, you can't repeat a word that was previously used. Ex: word words word wouldn't work. If you want to make sure that your word was not previously used you can use the "search this thread" button at the top of the game thread.

reset to TAN




Tony, you are doing the same thing that I have done many times.  rofl
 Changing many things at the same time. 

You can change only one letter at time.
Start with TAN
- Remove one letter.  Take away T:   becomes AN
- or replace one letter:  T becomes C for CAN
- or add one letter:  add an S becomes TANS
- or move ONE letter: ex: move a to the end of the word.
(in this word not possible makes TNA, but sometimes this is possible and make a proper word)

But you can not combine any of those things.
You changed Tan to tuna:
- add a u  AND
- move the a to the end
2 moves....not allowed.

And no proper names either.

rofl  I have been schooled about this several times for doing the SAME thing as you have done.  Don't feel bad about it!

Sometimes this EASY game gets tricky!  I surrender  :surrender:  more often than anyone because I get stumped the easiest!

The word RANGES is valid.    :boogie:
You ARE allowed to put an s to make things plural if it is a valid pluralization of the word. (dictionary.com)
Still the addition of one character!
And if in a game you see a plural word but the single is not used, it can be used later with no penalty!   :boogie:


And I do use multiple RANGES within an excel spreadsheet.   :D
And I do not have multiple RANGES (stoves) in my house.  ;)

HEY!!!!!       That's not funny!    >:(
I clicked NEW, was taken to Tony's tier (at the bottom of the page).
So I posted trier   One change only and valid, IF the last word had been tier.


Now I see that Rick ALSO posted, before mine and my NEW button did not take me to the END of the thread!    I did not see Rick's tiler at the beginning of the next page!  :ss-shocked: :v8slap: :ss-shocked:  So that invalidated my post!!!!!!!!!!!    :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(      Why didn't I get taken to the end?????  ???

You can drop a letter or add a letter, but only change one thing.

I Just changed the position of one letter: the letter "s"  backwards, from pets to pest  ;)

Hey Sami, that is a very liberal interpretation of the rules! In my opinion it is two changes!

You can drop a letter or add a letter, but only change one thing. No mention of move a letter!

Anyhow, how can you be sure it is the same s that got moved into the new position? Maybe it is a different s!  ???

But...you are the boss!  :yes:

GAME SUSPENDED....Lets get a ruling on this issue....
PLEASE VOTE!  Majority rules on this one. 
Results will be added to the first post to clarify acceptable or not acceptable practice.  :yes:


Quote

rofl

How would it be a different "s"?    ???  ???
If it was a different "s", wouldn't it have looked like this: 
pest    or this: pest    or this: pest    or this: pest  or this: pest

Since it retained its characteristics, just moved to another place within the same word how is that being liberal?  Still only one change to the word.   ???



I vote to accept the move of one character... ex:  pets to pest
Need Etienne, Wanda, Rick, Tony and if we can get him Jim Slagle to weigh in.....
Title: Re: Change one thing word game
Post by: hidden on December 12, 2008, 04:58:25 PM
Haha the same s, different s was just a joke!  rofl

Sami, you are extraordinarily democratic! No need for a vote, we can accept your ruling - after all, it is your forum!

But if you want a vote, mine is - no moves! That is clearly changing 2 things in the structure of the word. The fact that both changes use the same letter is irrelevant, in my opinion.

Hey Hey Hey.... hold your horses !! :whip: :whip:   LOL


May be Rick has some reason. Under a different point of view, there were actually two moves: the s backwards and the t forward... Which one was moved? the "s" ?, the "t" or both ?

I could swear that I read something about interchanging letters, may be in my previous life... in another game... in another forum... in my dreams... Boh ! (an Italian expression to say I don't know)  :unsure:  :(


Anyway, I would accept it  ;)

Swapping two letters is 2 moves as one of the letters must move to the right or left to create a space for the letter being moved to that space, and the second move is the letter that is being moved to the space created. Rick has interpreted the rule correctly in my opinion.

(Yes I use the "s" a lot!  And Yes it is the easy way out. And I am not embarrassed to admit it!!! 
That move is still deleting or adding a single letter, and fits into the rules properly. And .....YES it stays... that rule will not change.   :yes: :police: :hapscream:   so much for democracy!  >:D)

Nope.  On different boards, there is a tiny NEW image (http://samisite.com/forum/Themes/sspurple/images/english/new.gif).  When you click it, it takes you where you left off, not necessarily the last post in the thread.

To always get to the LAST post, you need to click this icon, all the way to the right of the name on the board.

Not a problem!  When a game is started, the first post defines the rules (and we edit that first post to clarify when necessary).  When this one was started, Jim Slagle defined the dictionary that would be used so we are all on the same thing.  Keeps the playing field as level as we can make it.

Well, it has been 4 days since the last post, so I assume no one has any answer to psalms.

Actually Sam, you are the real winner with psalm. I was just lucky to be the first to be able to add the s!

Congratulations for the win.  I knew that whoever came after me with the s would win...couldn't think of any other move... Thought about being sneaky and waiting till someone ELSE put in psalm so I could add the s but what the hey.  It lasted a VERY long time.  This particular game was started on

Tony, according to our reference Dictionary.com, descaled is not a legitimate word.
Title: Re: Change one thing word game
Post by: hidden on January 12, 2009, 08:18:11 AM

however
descale is a verb, found on Dictionary.com:

remove the scales from; "scale fish" [syn: scale]

Past tense of descale?   rofl

Are we going back to "decaled"? If so here is a word before the game ends:


deckled

adjective: having a rough edge e.g. 'deckled paper' or parchment. Used in works of art such as Leonardo Da Vinci's art that was mostly done on hand made paper with deckled edges.

A stiff, cylindrical military dress hat with a metal plate in front, a short visor, and a plume. One shacko, two shackoes. Didn't know this one and don't know if I'll ever remember it. Reminds me of the German military man in 'Those magnificent men and their flying machines' who stood to attention and his hat, possibly a shacko, pierced the hot air balloon he was flying in.

:oops: Sorry folks! I've been away again & it's going to happen more often until I finish this project so lets say the next runner-up has my blessing to choose a word to continue the game.

Here is a new word: elf

I wish I had an elf like Dobby to do things for me - from Harry Potter: Dobby was a house-elf who served the Malfoy family. During Harry Potter's second year at Hogwarts, he tried to warn the boy of the plot to have the Chamber of Secrets reopened.

Well,





Hole in one.
Ed has done it twice.  :yes:   
One of the words was a silly, not really intended to play the game: supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
The other was a serious attempt:  GLOBAL

I had started a research of start/end.  Finally posted it under FUN AND GAMES, reference.
Sometimes we had starts/stops with bad or repeat words so I did NOT do word counts!  But some of the games really lasted a long time.   

We had REPEAT starter words and that shouldn't happen but no one caught it.  Now it will be easier to identify them.
Title: Re: Change one thing word game
Post by: hidden on January 24, 2009, 09:37:29 AM
swell

Actually, GLOBAL was not intentional. It just came from Globalscape, the beloved company that used to sell and support what was one of the best HTML generators, CSB, but has sadly departed and left us undecided as to which way to go, scuse the satirical comment. I've just checked and found 2 words that could have been used:
GLEBAL from the noun 'Gleba' = the sporogenous tissue forming the central part of the sporophore in certain fungi, and,
GLOMAL the adjective of 'glomus' e.g. of or involving a glomus. There are several definitions of Glomus but the one I prefer is = A small body surrounded by many nerve fibers, consisting of an anastomosis between fine arterioles and veins. Dictionary.com list many medical terms with glomus in the term.

I've seen 3 of the HarPot movies. 1. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, 2. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, & 3. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.

The movies are well made, a bit far fetched but they are full of imagination transporting one to a different world and the one's I saw all have happy endings. Highly recommended for most ages.

I have read all 7 of the books and I have seen all 5 of the HP movies so far. 
I am dreading #6 as it is the darkest of the lot and the book version made me cry.
The last one with the final dramatic good vs evil battle that of course ends with some live some dead but overall a triumphant ending. Like the books more than the movie because they have even more detail but the movies have been very true to the series. Casting was EXACTLY on target! My favorite character is SNAPE.  He is really very complex (confirmed in the final book) and I find the actors voice so intense.  The series is creative fluff which gets heavier and darker as the books progress.  The themes in the series are really quite instructive since they deal with death and loss, good/evil, slavery, and discrimination.  Was so glad that Turtle was able to read the final book before he passed.  He was really looking forward to it.  I plan on getting the AUDIBLE versions too.....eventually so I can hear the books read to me as I drive!  Though I enjoy the series from Tolkien too, (Fellowship of the Rings), it is TOO heavy.

Thanks for your thoughts Tony. Those tragic fires were in the south-east of Australia, a little north of Melbourne. I live in Sydney, but I have a 160 acre forest property about 300km north of those fires, and I was worried about that. However the weather has cooled now, and the risk reduced. I heard that at times those fires were racing 20 km in just a few minutes - no one in the path of those fires can escape.

We have had several abbreviations lately (including mine) however my recollection is that these are not allowed. Could we have a ruling on it? My vote would be not to use abbreviations from here on.

Rick
Title: Re: Change one thing word game
Post by: hidden on February 15, 2009, 08:05:26 AM
Interesting request for a ruling. I tend to agree with Rick because in my humble opinion it makes the game more enjoyable to constructive and see the derivatives of recognized words. The moment abbreviations are introduced the word construction part of the game is lost. Sorry others!

Abbreviations definitely are not words, but some abbreviations have become acronyms and are indeed words. E.g. F.A.Q. or 'FAQ', the abbreviation for Frequently Asked Questions is an acronym and a word. Although I would never say the 'faq' word simply because it sounds like a swear word, 'faq' is recognized as a noun by Dictionary.com. However 'lbs' or 'tbs' are abbreviations and they are neither acronyms nor words. The original rules laid down by Jim, on page 1, states acronyms are not allowed. We understood his rule to include abbreviations and acronyms which are not yet recognized words.

I see two choices, either rule out abbreviations and acronyms that are not yet recognized words, or allow them but only if they are in D.com. Either way, I will abide by what is decided.
Title: Re: Change one thing word game
Post by: hidden on February 15, 2009, 03:19:10 PM
Thanks for your helpful analysis Ed. I mostly agree, except for your suggestion that we could possibly be allowed to use abbreviations etc if they are in D.com. I think most of the commonly used abbreviations are in D.com, so that would not put much restriction on it.

My rationale for suggesting that abbreviations and acronyms not be allowed is simply that they can be an easy way out of tricky situations, instead of forcing us to really think hard about a solution. We have had some great words lately, some of which I have never heard before.

Rick
Title: Re: Change one thing word game
Post by: hidden on February 15, 2009, 04:22:00 PM
I would vote (if I can do it...) NO for acronyms and abbreviations  :noshake:

Even the already discussed and sanctioned by THE JUDGE,  rofl  which is to convert words to plural or vice versa, doesn't make sense to me. That is an easier way, easier than find an abbreviation or an acronym, to get out of a tricky situation. Just a comment.  :)

Thanks for the input!!    :clapping: :clapping: :hearts: :clapping: :clapping:

On this one, I agree with Rick and Tony:  I would vote NO for acronyms and abbreviations 
 :agree:
My ruling based on the original post by Jim which was in all caps:
NO PROPER NOUNS AND NO ACRONYMS ALLOWED!
Though he did not address abbreviations, I truly think they were not part of the Jim's original intent.
The object is to change one letter ONLY, and make a new word.  
I don't really think that abbreviations fit the category properly so I will add the clarification to the original post.
We have let proper nouns, acronyms and abbreviations sneak in every now and then.... but they really don't belong.

We have INDEED had some great words lately.  Very challenging.



Even the already discussed and sanctioned by THE JUDGE, which is to convert words to plural or vice versa, doesn't make sense to me.

Rick is right.....the judge established this one already.  S addition/subtraction is fully acceptable and falls within the original rule posted by Jim:  You can drop a letter or add a letter, but only change one thing.
Of course there is always another option Tony.
I could create and exception to that rule to fit your needs.
   Everyone EXCEPT Tony is allowed to use the added/removed S to change the word. 
Your choice...  >:D

Lets take the word back to

(That's why I thought you were being sneaky...trying to back us into a corner where we already used the only usable words...)
Ed's word bully is available again since it could not be played yet.


So last valid word:   BULK
Title: Re: Change one thing word game
Post by: hidden on March 12, 2009, 10:43:59 AM
Yea, you’re right… that’s why it sounded familiar to me… 
Sorry :-[

Excuse me, but can a word used in a closed game be used again ?
The rules say: "Also, you can't repeat a word that was previously used." but it doesn't mention if it is valid for the entire game...

If yes, this is my word:

bull
was used on January 22, 2007 by SafaryWoman...



If NOT, then use this:

balk


I'm leaveing both to clarify the rule...


Title: Re: Change one thing word game
Post by: hidden on March 12, 2009, 02:47:33 PM
full





But of course!!  Each game starts the word list over.  :yes:
That's why I posted the dates of the games on this thread (http://samisite.com/forum/index.php?topic=579.0) so we can tell if it was last used in the current game..... Current game started Jan 27 so if the word appears after that date, it can not be used. 
Balk is still usable.

And he may have won by doing that!

I think it is time for a rethink! Actually those s' do spoil the game - they make difficult situations too easy, for the lucky one who can grab the s first! So I am coming around to the view: ban the s, wherever it creates or removes a plural. Hao ma?

Yes.  They are the JOKER or WILD card that allow you to get out of jail free, the TRUMP card which can take all. It is irritating when you don't get a chance to be the one to win with it.
But using it adds a little foolishness to this game!
The S is still valid, for everyone!  :yes:

I don't think it is an "honourable" way to win the game! It basically "steals" the win from the real winner. I have come to the view we should ban plurals (but only where it follows the singular)

eg: star > stars - not allowed;  start > stars - allowed

Any comments?

 :police: we have been through this before and I respectfully disagree.  It is the luck of the game!
I have lost to the S before and I DO find it honourable as it is a valid move.
I really don't want to win because people won't play a valid move!

Besides...If you look again, even if the game were played with the S, it would not end.....
I do not want to win because you guys are just throwing in the towel.  The S has more going than you think... Consider the following POSSIBLE combination:
barbells
barbels
barbers
barber
berber
berbera
gerbera
gerbert

8 moves in that list.
There are other alternatives to that list.  All due to the play of the s.

SO....What is your move?
Title: Re: Change one thing word game
Post by: hidden on May 01, 2009, 10:07:14 PM
Maybe the game might have continued in this case, but again, only by using plurals of words we have already recently used. I still think it "steals" from the one who put up the word in the first place.

Pirates have captured the thread and are holding it captive till I agree to remove the S rule.
Including one that hasn't been PLAYING the game, only monitoring it.

:banghead: We are at an impass. :banghead:
The rules say I can not play on my own word.
And I will NOT change the rule.  :police:
We have been through this before and you have not changed MY mind.  S stays.
S is an acceptable letter. I will not remove it from play, will not remove it from the alphabet!

You folks have asked that I rule on other things and on this one item I ask you to accept my ruling.
So... the only question that remains.....
Close this game only or the thread.   ???

hey Sami, I have no objection to the letter S. It is a lovely, smooth-flowing letter, one of my favourites!

My objection is to the use of plurals, where it hitches a free ride on the singular. The plural becomes the real pirate, attacking the singular word which often has been the subject of great thought and hours of research by an enterprising and highly motivated player. Sometimes, that rogue plural even hijacks the entire game. That could lead to lengthy bouts of depression on the part of the owner of the hijacked word, and could force a player to step out of the game altogether, perhaps just watching from the sideline!  >:D

It is indeed a nasty world we live in. You can't trust even a word, these days!  :clapping:

You must also consider:
- that a different motivated player may choose to use the S to advantage.  That S may be part of a calculated ploy made by another player trying to direct the play or maneuver other players to a letter combination that can be won...   >:D  (as demonstrated above one possible scenario).
- That S may be used as a "Trump Card" that takes the pot.  Many card games have such a situation so why not online word games too. :hapscream:
- That S may be an act of desperation!   :ss-shocked:
- That S may be an act of foolishness. :P :hearts: :P
- That S may be used to inflame, irritate other players while still following the rules.  Trying to get a reaction....for the fun of it.   >:D

Quote

Nope.  Don't see this. S is a gentle letter and no misdeed or malicious behavior can be attributed to it. It has never demanded anything, never asked us to do anything out of the ordinary.  The S can turn the game to another unintended direction. 

In my opinion, there is no difference between changing a word from
  barber to barbers
  man to men
  woman to women
In ALL CASES the word is being pluralized. Whether the S is added or an E replaces a, the result is the same. A pluralized form of the word. Yet you pick on the fabulous S and allow the E to do exactly the same thing without complaint!  >:( 

What about other plurals? 
- If you allow foot, would you then allow feet, mouse and mice, etc at some point in the game?
- If you allow the word hippopotamus would you allow the plural form in the same game if opportunity presented? That plural uses I, hippopotami OR es for hippopotamuses .  Hippos in all forms are acceptable but will probably never be played but the concept is still the same.  This has never been a discussion of pluralization because there has never been an issue from anyone asking for elimination of pluralizations! 

As I see it, the issue is one of discrimination against one specific letter: the S!
And this forum is supposed to be inclusive not exclusive.

(anyone notice that my favicon is my simple S??)

Where do we draw your line of acceptability? 
what about the PAST tense by adding a D ?  Do you want to ban that use of a letter also? 
Example:  Right now the letter S is FREE.   
Lincoln FREED the slaves.

OLD JOKE:
Patient says: "Doctor Doctor.... it hurts when I do this"
Doctor responds:  "Then don't do that!"



Maybe this is as much to do with how we spell english words.
We are inconsistent
Author(s) Unknown, poem found on About.com:
The English Lesson (version one)

We'll begin with a box, and the plural is boxes;
But the plural of ox should be oxen not oxes.
One fowl is a goose, but two are called geese,
Yet the plural of moose should never be meese.

You may find a lone mouse or a nest full of mice,
But the plural of house is houses, not hice.
If the plural of man is always called men,
Why shouldn't the plural of pan be called pen?

If I spoke of my foot and showed you my feet,
When I give you a boot, would a pair be called beet?
If one is a tooth and a whole set are teeth,
Why shouldn't the plural of booth be called beeth?

If the singular is this, and the plural is these,
Why shouldn't the plural of kiss be kese?
Then one may be that, and three would be those,
Yet the plural of hat would never be hose.

We speak of a brother and also of brethren,
But though we say mother, we never say methren.
So plurals in English, I think you'll agree,
Are indeed very tricky--singularly.

The English Lesson (version two)
Now if mouse in the plural should be, and is, mice,
Then house in the plural, of course, should be hice,
And grouse should be grice and spouse should be spice
And by the same token should blouse become blice.

And consider the goose with its plural of geese;
Then a double caboose should be called a cabeese,
And noose should be neese and moose should be meese
And if mama's papoose should be twins, it's papeese.

Then if one thing is that, while some more is called those,
Then more than one hat, I assume, would be hose,
And gnat would be gnose and pat would be pose,
And likewise the plural of rat would be rose.

Aha! Now I see the basis of torture going on in your mind, causing such dogged persistence! You have an extreme form of what is known as S-fetish.

Freud and his colleagues discovered this fetish in a number of his subjects. Apparently it derives from an incredibly deep love of the letter S, since it is the principal and leading word in S-E-X. Sufferers of S-fetish will do everything they can to defend and protect the letter S, which explains your fanatical behaviour.

Fortunately, counselling is available for this affliction. Freud discovered that encouraging his patients to participate in simple word games that prohibit use of the letter S in any situation where the S would create a plural of the preceding word, helps the sufferer to gradually wean off the fetish and lead a nearly normal life again.

We are all praying that your treatment will be successful, and that you will be able to s-leep again without s (ex) always tormenting you!

Title: Re: Change one thing word game
Post by: hidden on May 04, 2009, 08:31:37 PM
Ah...Yes.  I have heard of this.
But you must remember, Freud was discredited in MANY ways.
This is just one more of his ideas that is no longer considered valid, in fact, that whole theory was considered a complete misunderstanding of the situation.

I am sure you know that for 30+ years, multiple studies have proven that the continued use of the letter S in as many ways possible is vital to a healthy imagination, sense of humor, and general well-being.  The imune System is especially strong in those who have an active use of the letter.  Depression and argumentative tones have often been cited with people who do not get enough use of the letter. Some have been known to hijack forum threads in their attempt to restore balance to their own systems. Its a tragic case. Scream for attention. Simply using the S often and with gusto, even seeking new opportunities for its use is the best way to rebuild that sense of comraderie!

Haha touche Sami! Well done! Fun, isn't it?

Thanks for your applause Tony. I can understand the logic of your compromise suggestion, but I think if we are to accept the s-plurals, then we have to accept it as a game-winner also.

So, enough of the frivolity, here goes:

barbels

(well, at least it is not the plural of the last word!)

Oh bye the way, I am off to China tomorrow (Wednesday) morning. So, you will not see me on Samisite Forum for the next 5 weeks. Just thought I would let you know that - can't have you thinking I was sulking!  :P

Title: Re: Change one thing word game
Post by: hidden on May 05, 2009, 03:27:40 PM
I think that we need to stop picking on the defenseless S.

Tony, I appreciate your suggestion of compromise.  But it would not be fair either.
This game was a perfect example of that situation.
In this case, I could see a future for the game BEYOND the S and they could not.
Both Rick and Etienne thought that the Swould cause a win so they did not want to play it.  In fact, playing the S did not end the game. The S actually caused the game to continue to whatever conclusion we take it to eventually.  So the S did NOT end the game, would not cause a win, yet you would still not want to see it played because it MIGHT have ended the game. 

As I see it ALL plurals, no matter how they are made, are acceptable.

Quote
In my opinion, there is no difference between changing a word from

How can you say the S is worse than the E?

I REALLY wish you would participate in the games now and then Tony. We like having your input.

-------------------------------------
Rick....you have given me such an opportunity. 
You have allowed me a chance to REALLY evil  >:D >:D >:D
I could take the word back to barbells and WIN the game, not by placing an S into the word but by adding an L!  That would be hilarious!   And appropriate too for hijacking the thread.
rofl rofl rofl

But I choose NOT to do that.  I will keep the game going....

Tony, you should like them.  They come from your email signature. I reversed and slightly modified color for this forum!  Our MOVE only goes one way and your little fishes would have been going the wrong way.  I personally am proud of the fish hook!

Is that opening question mark the hook you are referring to?  :D Well, with a little of fantasy... it's more like Captain Hook's "hand" rofl  joke  ;)


Just a comment...
It is used in Spanish to start writing a question sentence. Not used neither in English nor in Italian.
In these two last idioms, is easy to get lost when there is too much text after the question starts if you don't know that what you are reading is a question (the ending question mark is out of sight)... In Spanish, you already are aware that what you are reading IS a question, no matter how long it is, so you can give it the correct voice inflection since the beginning.

We (Spanish) use ¿ ? and ¡ !

Yes. And it is a GREAT idea.  I wish english did the same thing.  I knew about that punctuation from my one year in spanish class in the 9th grade.  We will not discuss how long ago that was!   :P
Yes... the fish were fantasy (just characters on a keyboard) so the fish hook was too!

I could definitely see him scratching that spot in my back between my shoulder blades that is nearly impossible to reach.   :D

TWAIN


Quote
The word "twain" is an archaic form meaning "two". It appears in Kipling's "The Ballad of East and West" - "...and never the twain shall meet..."

My scanner software has a TWAIN setting. The standardized compatibility setting was released in early 1992 to connect scanners and personal computers (a difficult task!). Some people think it means either "toolkit without an important name" or "Technology Without An Interesting Name" but it was actually named after Mark Twain.

Sorry, I mixed up everything..
My apologies, please have patience



(slains)
I accept was invalid after spains, but...
before going to Dictionary.com, I first use a handy dictionary (Ctl+right click on the word), and it told me:

slains: People who have been slain (as in battle) - Deads

I thought going to Dictionary.com was unnecessary. Sorry again.
Title: Re: Change one thing word game
Post by: hidden on August 09, 2009, 04:27:52 AM
Tony, I checked dictionary dot com because I didn't think the word slains is a legitimate word. I don't think your dictionary is right, that slains are people who have been slain. Never heard of that. Anyhow, it is just a game, happy to be patient!  :)

Well as judge I guess I should give an opinion.
- neither word (spains, slains) is accepted based on dictionary.com
- dictionary.com is defined in the very first post that started the thread as the only dictionary that is acceptable. We all have many dictionaries, favorite sources we like to use.  The first thread set  (http://samisite.com/forum/index.php?topic=37.0) dictionary.com to limit confusion and make sure everyone has the same source.
Sorry Tony.

I use my dic. only for a pre-check, because handy and fast. I had already been warned to use Dictionary.com :yes:, but please, don't tell me you have never heard the word "slain"    :unsure: I do; that's why when read it on my dic. I didn't check it on the official one, it just confirmed what I already knew about that word, so I assumed was also there...
Don't ask me were I read or heard it...   :-\

Regarding "spains" is OK, you are right, is a country name and I shouldn't use it.

Title: Re: Change one thing word game

Are Felt and felt not the same word, or are we now recognizing lower and upper case letters as different?
Title: Re: Change one thing word game
Post by: hidden on August 11, 2009, 05:50:21 PM
In most cases I expect we can't accept upper case words, because generally they would refer to names of people, places etc which are not allowed.

I assume Sami intended the lower case word, and perhaps Tony missed it because it was typed in upper case. So probably we are back to fell. But we need the official word from the adjudicator, and perpetrator of Felt!  :)

For the records:  reading the Reference Page of the game, it seems that one game was won with the word SPLASH and could be followed by splashy, as Rick did this time.

I don't understand. If the game was won should we start over? Why could the word SPLASH be followed if it was won by the previous word? What did Rick do this time?

Wanda is on safari.  ;)  She has such a busy schedule traveling she can't come in as often as she (and we) would like. But she is with us in spirit and will return again.... :yes:


Looks like Etienne won that game with splash last time because none of us could come up with another word.  We even tried fake words. Now this game goes on with just a y added...  That's funny!   rofl




I posted that reference thread  (http://samisite.com/forum/index.php?topic=579.0) to help us all tell when a word has already been used.
You can find that post here, on the FUN AND GAMES  (http://samisite.com/forum/index.php?board=11.0) board.
Using SEARCH function to find a word could find the word at any point on this game thread.
To make it easier to play, I posted the beginning and ending word of each game with beginning date.
So check that thread for beginning of current game (March 18, 2009).  If search result:
  - has a date is before the current game = you can use the word again
  - has a date that is after = word has been used in CURRENT game = DON'T USE IT.

(I kept posting words that were already used. :-[  And that thread has helped so many times!)

Great idea to have the reference thread!

Just one clarification: Do the rules say that a word can never be repeated in all subsequent games once it has been used, or, not be repeated per each individual game? I would say the former would make the games tougher and shorter as words are used up.

Just in case you missed it: Are the rules interpreted to say that a word can never be repeated in all subsequent games once it has been used, or, not be repeated per each individual game?

Same word can not be repeated within the same game...
You can repeat words used on closed games.

That's why on the FUN and GAMES I have the game start and stop dates...
You can make sure the word you want to use has not been used in CURRENT game based on dates.
(I have made the most goofs reusing used words.  I made that thread to help me stop :-[)


And yes... love hash browns.  And home fries (bake extra potatoes, chill, then following day cut and fry them with a bit of onion...YUMMMMY)

Thanks Tony and Sami.

Although I like hash browns, my favorite food thing enjoy eating is grilled :fish: salmon.
Title: Re: Change one thing word game
Post by: hidden on August 16, 2009, 01:02:17 PM
MMMMM  Yummy.  Love salmon but not blackened...no cajun spices for me.  :yuck:
Grilled, loafed and even as a snack item.
I have a simple and easy recipe for salmon cheeseball tasty on crackers. High protein.

Quote
2 Cups flaked salmon (I use a large can of RED cooked salmon, remove bones and skin)
1 - 8 ounce cream cheese
2 tsp finely grated onion
1 tsp horseradish
1 TBSP lemon juice
1/4 tsp liquid smoke, but not a drop more! (comes in tiny bottle in spice area of supermarket)

Mix all ingredients
Chill
Can be rolled in walnuts for a ball or log look, or just mounded into a shape of choice
I often just line a bowl with plastic wrap, smush mix into the bowl and chill.  Then release from bowl.
Can last about a week refrigerated....

Signing off. I am headed to the kitchen to make up my favorite food: Pineapple Fluff....Takes about 6 minutes to make, almost an hour to bake. Will get to enjoy it while watching Ice Road Truckers tonight.  Eggs, sugar (or substitute), pineapple and a tiny bit of flour topped with buttery toasted breads...like a soufle texture with a crunchy top. Perfect as a side dish with dinner, GREAT hot out of the oven, EXCELLENT served ice cold from the refrigerator for breakfast or snack with a sandwich.    I am not a cook.  But do have a few standbys that I just get a hankering for...

If you want to know how to make it, let me know and I will post. Simple and yummy IF you like Pineapple.

Sorry guys, I didn't take the word rainbow on purpose, that is not a big deal to start and win with a single word, there are hundreds to pick from, specially multi-syllables (should we make a new rule: start only with one or two syllable words?)

I knew the S could fit but I didn't check further, nevertheless... I found another word:

rainbowy


Anyway, lets start a new one:, this time taking the first word of the name of this game:

The British and commonwealth countries use the Oxford University Press's dictionary as the official dictionary. The last time I checked, Websters was the official dictionary of USA English, but that was about 20 years ago.

You go alone don't you?  Do you take a planned route or just go randomly making decisions what to see?
Is there a lot of limitation what you can do/see? Or are you in such rural areas that those things are not as strict?

I go both alone and with groups. I like exploring around China alone. It gives me the freedom to go where and when I like. Tibet is the only seriously restricted area (you must have a permit and registered guide), and there are military and other sensitive areas which are off-limits, such as border areas, but generally, you are free to go almost anywhere.

I also take small groups on adventure trips, mostly to Tibet. By roughing it a bit, we manage to get to places few foreigners go. I am doing the planning now for a trip next April in Xinjiang province in the north-western corner of China. We will be doing an 8-day desert trip with camels, and some other sightseeing around Kashgar and other historical areas of the famous ancient Silk Road trading route.

It is always great fun!

I am alone a lot and like it, most of the time.
When I have had enough alone time, will crave other people.
Ex: Last week I worked from home. Never left the house for 6 days.
I had contact with outside world only through computer.  Really liked it.
Eventually needed to be around others for a while.  I like the personal interaction with people.
Sounds strange but sometimes feel more "alone" or separated when I am with people than just by myself.

URINO is not a word.
It is only a prefix only. Must be combined with other units to create words.
Can not be used in a sentence without combined form.

a combining form of urine: urinoscopy.
urino- or urin-  
pref.
Urine: urinalysis


(Merriam Webster Dictionary also confirms that it is only a preface)
Main Entry: urin-
Variant(s): or urino-
Function: combining form



=========
(Thought I would just take a look at it this too)

-scopy  is a suffix only.
a combining form used to form abstract action nouns corresponding to nouns with stems ending in -scope: telescopy.
-scopy suff.
Viewing; seeing; observation: microscopy.

urinae



"urino" is not a word? :ss-shocked:

Is "sub" a word?  (sub - 13 dictionary results in dic.com)
It is always combined, as in substrate, suburban, submarine, substitute, etc...

 :xmouth:
Title: Re: Change one thing word game
Post by: hidden on October 01, 2009, 04:59:10 PM
I am not sure we can accept urinae either. Dictionary.com does not give it any definition. Seems it is a medical term which does not have meaning in its own right, but needs to be combined with other medical terms to have meaning. I think this takes it outside the terms of this game. Opinions?
Title: Re: Change one thing word game
Post by: hidden on October 02, 2009, 03:31:43 AM
urines





Please Sami, add two new rules to the game:
Actual rules: (You CANNOT play off of your own word. NO PROPER NOUNS AND NO ACRONYMS ALLOWED!)
Also, no wandering letters.  Ex: pets can not become pest.   
Also, no abbreviations.  Ex: lbs and lb  (like acronymns, abbreviations aren't true words)

1.- No prefixes are allowed
As anti, sub, hyper, infra, urino, pre, semi, etc

2.- No medical terms are allowed
As urinary-(calculus), ardor-(urinae), tachycardia, tachypnea, etc.

Even though, I think that new rules should be only established at the beginning of a game...  ;)

clarification required.


Quote
Is "sub" a word?  (sub - 13 dictionary results in dic.com)
It is always combined, as in substrate, suburban, submarine, substitute, etc...

Yes it is a word. Dictionary.com properly identifies it as a NOUN. It is an informal word.
The word "sub" is used in many ways on its own, as a word and does not rely on being combined with other words.  You can PROPERLY use the word sub in a sentence.

Sub can ALSO be used as a prefix as shown by the dictionary entry: (sub- pref.)
But is not ONLY a prefix.

In contrast, if you go back to the item URINO, it can ONLY be listed in the dictionary as a prefix.
It is not listed as a word by itself.  
Dictionary.com specifically lists it only as:  urino- and does not list it as urino
That dash - in the bolded entry tells you that it MUST be linked to something else.
It can not be used in a sentence by itself. It has no meaning or purpose without being combined.

Examples of prefixes only:   pre-, re-, de-
Examples of suffixes only:  -ness, -ment, -ist
They would not be accepted in this game.

By the way, some of your samples for a prefix only are incorrect.
These are both WORDS and PREFIX.  These words would be acceptable in the game!
- semi is a WORD and a PREFIX.   :yes:
  It is shown in dictionary.com as semi (noun) and semi- (prefix)
  You can use semi in a sentence as a word.
- hyper is a word too. (noun, adjective)  and also hyper- (prefix)
- anti (noun) and anti- (prefix)
- infra (adverb) and infra- (prefix)  

I can immediately think of a three other COMMON words that are also prefixes I use almost daily:
  extra, auto and macro  
And one common word that is also a suffix:  -ship
All of them would be acceptable in this game.


:judge:
I do not think it is necessary to add a rule for no prefixes and suffixes.  That is obvious.  The rule was WORDS.
If dictionary.com can list an item as only a prefix (-) or suffix (-), then it is  not a WORD. Seems simple and obvious to me.

Quote
2.- No medical terms are allowed
As urinary-(calculus), ardor-(urinae), tachycardia, tachypnea, etc.

I have no problem with medical terms if listed in dictionary.com AS LONG AS they are WORDS not only prefixes or suffixes.
I'll take other input on that issue.









Title: Re: Change one thing word game
Post by: hidden on October 02, 2009, 11:29:52 AM
Yes, I agree with you and I will accept anything you decide, but... please, give me a break.  :-[

This is a word game, and prefixes (I didn’t say anything about suffixes) are also words to me, because they can be written, spelled and pronounced, and have a meaning by itself or associated.

Rules of the game are short and clear, they didn’t mention anything about this kind of words. Where was written the contrary? As long as they appear on dictionary.com as noun, verb, prefix, or whatever, they are (and must be, in my opinion    :-[) considered valid, excluding acronyms, abbreviations, Latin botanical definitions and proper nouns, as explained on the rules.  :yes:

As I said before, I accept your decision and will play according with.  :TUP:

For me, the game can go on.  :D

 :agree:
Title: Re: Change one thing word game
Post by: hidden on October 02, 2009, 05:26:54 PM
Sami, you have summed up the situation perfectly. Agreed from my side.

But Tony, you seem to be still arguing about the validity of urino. When standing alone (as it must in this game), it has no meaning and is not a word, because to be a word, it must be combined with another term to complete a word.

Your entry in the game was urino, which does not appear in dictionary.com. What appears is urino- (with the -)

Title: Re: Change one thing word game

Tony...   :hug: :flowers: :hug:

Yes....it is a game. One that has bitten me several times.  rofl  :banghead:

Thank you for explaining.  Helps.
There may be times we see and understand things differently.  
Makes the world (and this game) more fun!  :TUP:


Quote
(I didn’t say anything about suffixes)
I know.  :yes:  I added that to the mix.  
Since prefixes and suffixes fall into the same situation, I thought I would deal with both at the same time.   :)

Quote
prefixes are also words to me, because they can be written, spelled and pronounced, and have a meaning by itself or associated.
Ok...I get what you mean.  :yes:
They are listed in the dictionary.   :yes:
You are right that prefixes do have meaning, can be written and spelled.   :yes:

BUT are they truly a word by themselves?  ???
No.  They can not be used alone in a sentence.
They depend on other pieces to create a complete thought.  
Each is a PART of a compound word and can not be put in a sentence, written or spoken without it's complete form. If you tried to write a sentence with just the prefix or suffix, the sentence would not make sense.




SO....  The question comes down to:
Do we allow prefixes and suffixes to stand alone in this game even though they can not in sentences?

I believe the original "intent" of the game is to use words that can stand alone in a sentence.
Might be because I expected that, or culture or country thing. Don't know.


I looked at the original post:
"The object is to change one letter ONLY, and make a new word."

How about this clarification to the rules...?
No Prefix/Suffix only words (examples:  pre-, re-, mis-, dis-, -er, -ment...) which are shown in dictionary.com with a - before or after the word. These can not be used alone in a sentence.

Well, you believed it, but it was not written down on the rules

"The object is to change one letter ONLY, and make a new word."

I'm ready to continue with the game, without using pre & suffixes, medical terms and anything else that might look like a word, but is not, even if it appears on dictionary.com.  :xmouth:

The push to change to metric standard was in the 70's. Since then, we have moved back away from it.
Our products do show english units (oz) and metric (mL) but that is more for international trade (one packaging that can be sold in several countries). But as to the students being told this is your future...  :noshake:  They stopped saying that a long time ago.

Oh no, I won't leave you two alone! Can you be trusted?  rofl

I live in Sydney, but I keep my boat on an island (www.hamiltonisland.com.au) which is in the Whitsunday Islands region of the Great Barrier Reef, in far north-east of Australia. It is warm all year round, and one of the best boating/cruising areas in the world. There are 74 islands, most of which are part of the Great Barrier Reef National Park, and still in their natural state. There are hundreds of beautiful bays where we can anchor overnight or for several days, great for scuba diving around the coral reefs. The boat is very comfortable to live on: 43ft long, 2 cabins 2 bathrooms and a coffee machine!

I have an apartment there too. In case you want to rent it for a holiday, I will give a special price for Samisite Forum members! www.hamiltonislandparadise.com.au

That island is very convenient because there are direct flights from Sydney, takes 2 hours.

When I am there, I use wireless internet which works in most areas of the region, but not everywhere. So I should be online most of the time, but not always. Back home 15th of November.

Now you have the full story!  8)

cheers
Rick

We both go together to the boat. She is Ok because there is comfort. On my China trips I like the adventure of out-of-the-way places, roughing it in 3 star Chinese hotels etc. Not her style at all!  :)

Yes, it is the same boat. I have had it for 6 years. Still going great!

Haha, you are pencilled in for spring 2029!! I guess trips to Australia are more expensive the days. The Aussie $ has risen from around US 50 cents to more than 90 cents in the last few months.

xmas



I love this game.... always learn things!  I thought XMAS was a NEW thing.  But it's not!

Xmas has been used for hundreds of years in religious writing, where the X represents a Greek chi, the first letter of Χριστoς, "Christ." In this use it is parallel to other forms like Xtian, "Christian." But people unaware of the Greek origin of this X often mistakenly interpret Xmas as an informal shortening pronounced (ěks'məs). Many therefore frown upon the term Xmas because it seems to them a commercial convenience that omits Christ from Christmas.

RICK.... WAIT.... Have an issue pending before we go forward.

Twattles is NOT listed as it's own word in dictionary.com when you do a direct search.
But it is shown AND USED in the definition of the related word twattler.

Quote
Twattler
Twat"tler\, n. One who twattles; a twaddler.

SO... the question is:  SHOULD THIS WORD BE ACCEPTED.
I think it should be accepted because it is used as a word in a sentence as the example for the other word.  But technically by our rule it is not valid since you can not search for that word directly. So if you guys want me to change my word I will......


I sent dictionary.com an email about it!  :D
Quote
TWATTLES is missing from the search results.
yet it is used in the definition for Twattler:
Twattler, n. One who twattles; a twaddler.

We use this site as our definitive resource for a couple word games: the word must be found in dictionary.com search results.

Is Twattles a valid word? It appears to be based on the definition sentence. If so, why doesn't it have its own entry in dictionary.com? We are debating if we should allow this word to be used in our game even if the search can not find it.

Thank you.

twattles, according to our rules, should not be valid.   :nofinger:

Only for quick reference, I first use another dictionary (WordWeb.com) before check with dictionary.com and many times I find words that according to them are valid (or vice versa) , but not for dic.com, so I don't use them on the game.

I am persuaded by Mr Perfect Italian's argument. Even though it is likely twattles is a valid English word, dic.com result is "no dictionary results" so I think we should stick to the rule and not allow it.  :nofinger:

 :judge: Amended rule: must find the word in the SEARCH on Dictionary.com not just in an example or sentence, therefore TWADDLES is NOT accepted. :judge:

 :judge:  trew =  not acceptable.  (Obs. = Obsolete word).  There is no current use or current definition for the word trew.  The word was used in OLDE ENGLISH to mean true, but is not acceptable in current language.   It could not properly be used in any written communication today.

Sami, please write a new rule on the first page:

No obsoletes words will be accepted.

It means that if I read a Shakespeare word in old English, not longer in use, it wont be accepted, because obsolete, even if it appears on dic.com  >:(     :whip:  :whip:

If the word has an obsolete meaning it MAY be acceptible if it ALSO has a current use.  Old words have carried forward successfully.  That particular word was dropped, and "true" replaced it.  If someone typed "trew" into a magazine or book, it would not be understood...most people would think it is a typo.
If the word can no longer be understood by current written/verbal communication, it would not be acceptable.

I can understand the logic of your compromise suggestion, but I think if we are to accept the s-plurals, then we have to accept it as a game-winner also.

Hi All,

I found a new way to search on our official Dict.com. Just type a "?" wildcard instead of a letter in a word and if there are alternatives they will show up. It seems to work for all the letters in a word except the first letter. E.g. if you want a word like "waiter" but with other alternatives for the letter "i", type "wa?ter" and you will get words like "waster" and "watter".

OK, this is the new word, from our page titles:

today





I found Ed's find extraordinarily useful, but...
now the game becomes much easier, it is just a matter of time.
The winner will be who has more time to dedicate to the game.

Please allow me to suggest once again that some restrictions should be applied.
One of this rules can be that the new word must be different, neither conjugated nor its plural. Eventhough, using the dic.com wild card it's still easy to play.

 :xmouth: :xmouth:
Title: Re: Change one thing word game
Post by: hidden on January 08, 2010, 06:36:14 PM

I agree with Tony. I think it is time to kill the dreaded plural! Using dic.com, even without the wild card, has made the game much easier (although we still get winners), so I think we need to balance it a bit with some tougher rules.

I agree in principle with Tony's suggestion that the new word needs to be a different word, not conjugate or plural of the previous word. But we need to be very clear what "conjugated" means in this context. Tony, could you give some examples please?

Having said that, I may not see your decisions for a while. Tomorrow morning I am off to China again for 3 weeks. If the situation is the same as before, Samisite is not accessible in China, so see you all in 3 weeks!

(Sam, if you change the rules, will you please send me a PM, to ensure I will be aware of the changes when I get back - maybe just a link to the posts defining the changes)

 :TUP: Tony, I agree with your suggestion of banishing plurals, but  ??? conjugation in English can be problematic so we need rules, as Rick suggests, if we are going to implement it too. I can't think of a simple rule and it seems much easier to conjugate in the Latin languages as a single letter makes a big difference, e.g. the verb 'love' (amo) has inflections such as amo, amas, amat, but in English you need two words to conjugate the inflections, e.g. I love, you love, we love. In addition, in English the same word is often a noun and a verb making conjugation more complex but in the Latin languages it is simpler, e.g. 'love' is a verb and also a noun but amo changes with only one letter to amor in Latin.
Title: Re: Change one thing word game
Post by: hidden on January 10, 2010, 05:45:04 AM
eddy





Yea, I agree that conjugation in English can be a real pain and a big trouble maker… you're telling me!! but the thing can be solved just avoiding those words that have the same meaning, In other words, the same “root”, no matter the time of conjugation. e.g. love, loved, loves, lover - In this example, we have verb, adjective and noun, but all have the same root: love.

For the records, in Spanish, the verb is “amar” (all verbs end with - ar - er - ir -) and two word are also needed to conjugate them: yo amo, tu amas, él ama, nosotros amamos, vosotros amais, ellos aman… pretty difficult, isn’it ? The noun is amor  :hearts:

I don’t want to complicate the game, I will accept your final decision, but now, with the wild card, the game has lost a little of interest if I leave the computer to find a word for me. I can even go further and choose a word from the suggested list that has no more continuity, just doing a fast check with the wild card…
Title: Re: Change one thing word game
Post by: hidden on January 16, 2010, 07:08:13 PM

Well......I have thought about this for a few days now.....
I have read and re-read Tony and Rick's comments.

For years I have used many different ways to find playable words.
Yet I have not won a single game!  :(
So in the end, using technology to find more words, or find words easier is NOT the way to WIN the game.  
It does not hinder my ability to play the game, help me to win (obviously) or take the joy from the game.
And technology like the ? can be avoided. Just choose not to use it if it removes some of the fun for you.
Even if the ? at dic.com or any other site helps to find words faster, it does not necessarily lead to a win!

To win it, you must direct the answers to a stopping point.  
It takes effort to direct the word play.
So far, Tony and Rick are far superior in this regard.  So far...

The original concept is simple. Change one thing for another word.
We have tightened and clarified the concept but not changed the intent.

1) I believe that keeping the game SIMPLE is most important. Maybe I am wrong, but the more complicated rules that are added will add more disputes and more stops in the game.

2) Taking away conjugations, plurals and other twists only adds complications to a simple game, especially when you consider this is an international community. English is not an easy language when it is the first language, and must be a mess to others.

3) At this point, I don't want to take out plurals or stop conjugations. There have been times that plurals have been the turning point, not the end of a game. I find it quite amusing to see who resorts to the "s".  I like to use it but Tony and Rick tend to shy away from it and act like they have a gun pointing at them in order to play it.  FUNNY!  Why would I want to rule against that type of thing!  LOL!  It makes me laugh to think to mature men are threatened by a tiny "s".

SO... at this point..... the ruling is:  :judge: :rules: :judge:  The plurals and conjugations stay.  

I TRULY hope and pray that you guys will continue to play the game and accept the ruling.

I must mention that I know the goal is to win, but I also enjoy seeing it continue. Almost like trying to see how long it can go on without stopping.

Yes....there is a reference thread to identify the beginning and end of each game (http://samisite.com/forum/index.php?topic=579.0).


Jim has been ill and does not spend much time on the computer these days. We are in contact through email.
Wanda is a social butterfly, with so many projects and traveling so she stops in when she can.
Rick is usually here, unless he is on one of his journeys. Likes to go wandering about China. He has told us some of this exploits. Samisite is banned in China so he will post when he returns.
And you wandered away for a while too. It's lovely to have you back while time permits.

Quote
I don't know how you arrived to this conclusion.
E, you have been very busy not not playing our silly word games so you have missed some of the drama.  :D
Tony has been a constant contributor, and part of the family for a couple years now.
He has been a wonderful addition to the games.
He often stirring up trouble.  ;)  
Or debates, or foolishness with Rick which is just plain FUN.   :D
You would be quite amused by some of the exchanges!  I can only imagine if the three of you ganged up together!   rofl

Many posts have tried to get me to stop using the tiny little "s".  Tony even made a campaign SIGN. (http://www.iarfish.com/ss_spam.gif)
He and Rick tend to blame other people for FORCING THEM to use that tiny little "s".
Several times there have been campaigns to remove the "s" plural from play.
Go to this post and read the next several in a row for just one example of this issue:
http://samisite.com/forum/index.php?topic=37.msg7794#msg7794
There have been MANY such 'discussions about the defenseless little "s". And in that particular exchange NO ONE would play the "s" even though it would mean the game would continue, not end.
These silly things just make me laugh.
So at one point I added a rule that everyone except Tony could use the "s"

Thanks for tall the explanations and I do hope Jim recovers. My work makes me wonder about the globe and the internet can be frightfully expensive in certain countries. Connectivity can be awful in some areas and some companies understandably don't allow me to use their internet facilities, so I use 3G tethering where it is available, but have to careful for the costs.

I read and like the sign Tony made and although I will abide by the rules, it is wonderful that you allow us to stir from time to time. Between you, Tony, Rick, and me when I am able to, we make quite a unique bunch of goofers, don't we?  :P I mean, a German American, a Spanish speaking Italian, Chinese loving Australian, and mix of all sorts from South Africa.  ;) How did this happen I wonder.

Simple. CSB brought us all together.   :TUP:
Trellix & CSB was sold in so many countries. Through the years on the Trellix, GS & Samisite forums, we have had discussions from people in the USA, Italy, Holland, Japan, South Africa, Australia, UK, Canada, Germany and others. Some of us just hung around a bit more than others and developed attachments. But at the heart of it, a cheap piece of software brought us all together. Strange to think that such a simple piece of software would cause such loyalty in its users, and facilitate long-term communication even after the software is gone.  Trellix/CSB used to appeal to mature folks, not kids so the likelyhood that we would get along is higher. But I have to credit the FIRST Trellix forum (known as the Trellix Cafe) for setting the initial tone: family, friendly, helpful, fun, and a bit silly!  The forums may have changed, but we just carried on from that point with the same tone!

My home is filled with different kinds of woods because I am not a matchy-matchy person. I don't want every dish on my table to be the same pattern. I find it very pleasant to have pieces that are very different, but work well together. I don't want all my furniture to be covered in the same upholstery. In real life, I have friends on the farthest ends of the political spectrum, different religions and beliefs, and ages (19-84 currently). This forum reflects that same concept. Different opinions, different views, different countries, different ideologies, different work, yet we all get along so well, respect each other and our differences.  How terrific is that!!!

If someone had told me that if you build a little website with a free piece of software and 10 years later you will be in constant touch with people around the globe, I would not have believed it.   I am so delighted, so HAPPY to know you guys and am so thankful that you choose to share some of your time, your thoughts. It is such a pleasure!

Tony, I post from the UK when there, but am mainly in sunny SA. Over the years I've heard many tri-nation jokes. I don't know if you know that the Irish, bless their souls, are known to be very very fond of their liquid nourishment. I've been to Ireland and have witnesses many a lamp post being held upright by a drunk Irishman, so here is one in their honor.

One day an Englishman, a Scotsman, and an Irishman walked into a pub together. They each bought a pint of Guinness. Just as they were about to enjoy their creamy beverage, three flies landed in each of their pints, and were stuck in the thick head. The Englishman pushed his beer away in disgust. The Scotsman fished the fly out of his beer, and continued drinking it as if nothing had happened. The Irishman too, picked the fly out of his drink, held it out over the beer, and started yelling, "SPIT IT OUT, SPIT IT OUT, SPIT IT OUT!"

In high-school, our english teacher forced our class to memorize and recite this poem and it has stuck with me all my life!!!  

FLOWER in the crannied wall,  
I pluck you out of the crannies;  
Hold you here, root and all, in my hand,  
Little flower—but if I could understand  
What you are, root and all, and all in all,
I should know what God and man is.

By Alfred, Lord Tennyson

I am off to China again tomorrow, so most likely I will not be able to access the forum for the next 6 weeks, back home mid May. I am crossing the Taklimakan Desert in far north-western China, by trek and camel. We are following the traditional route of the ancient Silk Road. It should be a great adventure!

See you in May.  :)

(My current avatar is a necklace/pendant made by a webmaster that makes jewelry and sells on the web, using CSB to build her site.  I loved her site, her work so years ago, I commissioned a unique piece from her. Just asked her to use her imagination and use her imagination and include a dragonfly and not yellow (I don't wear much yellow since I am so fair). Ann Chavez gave me a bid for the length I wanted and beads to be included and she made it! Hand made beads,  crystals, hand painted and unique design made only by her. I had just built a website for a company and gotten paid so put that money towards something that would always make me smile. The first time I saw the design is when I opened the box! LOVE IT! :hapscream:  Over the years, her site changed to offering different kinds of designs, different types of work. She no longer offers the type of necklace I have.)   http://www.jackalopejewels.com/

I spent a couple years playing this game and FINALLY won a game with an S!
But I refuse to win a second game with an S just a couple days later.

May never do that again and might win another game with an  S. Just not this one, this time.

Thanks for the welcome back!

I will be home for a month, then taking off for about 3 months on a 4WD trip to the remote far northern-most point of Australia. There are no roads there, only rough tracks, and rivers to drive across. I will need to be careful of crocodiles! I will have my laptop, but there will be long periods where I cannot get any internet service.

Talking of Australia and crocodiles, can you believe that I just realized two days ago that Steve Irwin died four years ago...?   :( :'(
I casually heard it swapping on E! show "The 15 most (not remember) of Hollywood"

That was so shocking, so tragic.  
As a teenager, I swam in the Gulf of Mexico with a science team, collecting plant and animal species from the Gulf. I reached down for what I thought was an usual item and touched it. In response, it shimmered, lifted from the sea bed and shook off the sand that camouflaged the body, then floated away. I had been 9-10 inches above a large ray and did not know it! In reaching for a specimen I did not recognize I poked it in the back!  It was so beautiful and so graceful.  My swim partner was as impressed as me by the sight.  When I heard that Steve died in essentially the same position it was quite freaky to me!

I have been offline for a while. I am travelling again! This time, in outback Australia. I am in the far north, near the Gulf of Carpentaria. My objective is the top of Cape York, the northern-most part of Australia. It is a rough, dusty trip. There are no roads there, only rough tracks, and rivers to drive across. I will have internet from time to time, so will check in to see how you guys are going. Anyhow, the next couple of weeks is reasonably civilised, but then I will be into the really remote area, and offline for a couple of weeks!
