'Bible' is not accepted in WordHub ('bibles' is though)!
My opponent in one of my matches just managed to enter "peles" in a round. Is this a misspelling of the word "peels"?

Why should "rused" be listed? Isn't 'ruse' a noun?

Hey, I didn't notice that! It's often used in the sense "to ruse your way out of something", perhaps this is just Aussie slang?

I hear ya pedro, the ridiculous amount of accepted non-words & legitimate words not accepted gets "gets my goat" too! (more Aussie slang). I keep resolving to quit, or at least cut back my playing, but I keep going back. Brick wall

Farer is a noun (someone who fares).
According to Burton's Legal Thesaurus, via TFD's Legal dictionary tab, "hebes" is synonymous with the word "obtuse" among others, implying it is an adjective.
As for "stadias": stadias might be a plural of the word "stadia" - instrument definition.

Edit: A few minutes ago, I managed to enter something I believe is an erroneous inclusion in the game: "WOMENS".

"Renters" isn't accepted. Surely it ought to be, seeing as several people can rent something or be landlords.

"Larging" and "braging" are incorrectly admissible..
Also, "poshing" and "shoping" still are as well.

Oh yes, sorry. I forgot to look for "womens" to see if it had been reported before I mentioned it in my previous post.

Admins, are you waiting to fix these reported errors til the next WordHub version is released? I read in feedback response from the gamemakers that it's going to be quite an exciting one! i'm looking forward to it!

"Boto" is incorrectly admissible.

Now, it would be splendid if we could replies again from TFD on what we've reported here, and what I mentioned in the other thread about players deserting games, leading to the stats becoming wonky (http://forum.thefreedictionary.com/postst129511_Please-also-count-wins-by-expiry-to-the-stats.aspx).

I entered "feeds" but the game didn't accept it, it accepted my opponent entering it though. This is my game against Mara Gibson, if you can take a look at it.

"Slavs", previously mentioned by me and Neurotic (noticed just now that Neurotic already had mentioned it), is still in the game despite the new update.

Gorgon is also a disparaging word and I imagine "gorgons" is a viable plural of this word.

I don't think the plurals are original Farlex work, I'm afraid it's the publishers of e. g. Collins and American Heritage that you need to contact.


I managed to enter "bivvied" in a round a few minutes ago (after upgrading to the newest version). Is this really a word?

GORGONS is my bad. I put it on the list because GORGONS is accepted, yet its singular GORGON is not. Thanks Magnus, sorry Admin.

Plurals which were previously disallowed are now allowed. It's happening slowly, but they're being added. I played SPIC a while ago, it still hasn't been deleted!

BIVVIES is one of our funny English words, borrowed from French. It's short for bivouacs.

Is "bivvied" an adjective form of "bivvies"?

It's remarkable that spic still hasn't been removed considering Farlex stance in general regarding those type of words.
The misspelling "shoping" wasn't removed during the most recent update either annoyingly.

Is "bivvied" an adjective form of "bivvies"?

No, it's a verb.

Eg. We bivvied by the creek overnight.

This is NOT a common term. Most persons would simply say "camped" instead. In fact, many native English speakers would scratch their heads in confusion if you used the word "bivvied". I reluctantly concede that it is a word, but I don't know anyone who uses it, & I love camping!

SCROTE has no plural listed, SCROTES is not allowed.

TRIFFID? You allow TRIFFID! It's an old, but brilliant sci-fi novel, but as a game word?

Ought not scrote go the way of cunt? They are both vulgar slang.

Triffids, elves, leprechauns, hortas, ghosts, gods, spirits, sprites, nyads, dryads, orcs, trolls, unicorns, dragons, eewoks, wookies, ents, etc. are all in our vocabulary, and all ought to be spelled correctly; therefore they belong in the dictionary! Whistle

I wasted many an hour of my life playing tetris, but I don't believe it has a plural form. Tetrii? Mumbledy-peg would be plural, either. Games without plural forms . . . Think

I'm stumped to think of more.

This is my only now.
