The page has closed on me during a game again! I couldn't type a single word & the page went white & started reloading. I didn't do this. I'm really getting tired of this. I scored 0 for the round again.

Another query. I've recently had a draw, details below. I've blacked out my opponent's details for privacy. As you can see, I was behind in points, but it was my opponent's turn when the game expired. Why a draw? When the same thing happened previously, I lost a series of games (& a considerable amount of ratings points) when I inadvertently let games expire, even though I was ahead in points. Why wasn't my opponent deemed to have given up, like I was?

Judging from the screenshot, both of you were able to play the last round - none of you had to wait for the other to do so since you both had played the second round. Therefore, essentially (even if this wasn't intended), you had both given up... at least that's how I thought the game worked.

I second that

"In expired games, the users who have played fewer rounds are the losers, and their ratings decrease. The same thing happens for users who give up."

Unless this is a paid application, I see all this argumentative and nasty back and forth quite unnecessary. But, that's just me. Be happy people. It's only one life.

Were you logged into your account when you played WordHub? If not, then that would explain why it wasn't logged.

Also, the games don't show up on the log, and you don't recieve points for them, until they're finished. I'm not sure what you meant but I hope this is of any help.

Where do we request new words? I've tried to get SENSE to work, but it doesn't. I understand borderline ones like PORN might not be suitable, but...

Still overall a fun way to learn words and plan strategy.

I particularly enjoy the idiom section of this fine website.

Thank you, Andrew. We are investigating why "sense" is not being accepted.

Please provide some more details so we can investigate.


There are computer programs that unscramble words for you, as well as websites. These, along with double screens, can enable some of the highest ranking WordHub players, such as NeuroticHellFem, to enter every single word possible from a given puzzle, more than any human can physically type, in order to get a perfect score every time.


I've been debating whether or not to respond to this. I keep typing an answer, then deleting it. It's a hell of a thing to openly accuse me of cheating!


Let me explain how I get such high word counts. I'm a touch typist: ten fingers without taking my eyes off the screen. I used to be able to do 70 words per minute. Playing wordhub might have increased my speed even higher, I haven't retested my typing speed. I've also spent many MONTHS playing words within words compulsively. I made a point of looking up most of my missed words. You'll note my posts throughout the words within words error thread on the site features forum. Many of my observations have been noted & the word base amended accordingly. My posts cover many months. Wordhub has the same set of game words as the words within words game, except wordhub only uses the 7 letter game words. I've become familiar with the same game words coming up. I can't recall the definition of every word I play, but I know they're words, that's enough for wordhub. If you'd spent this long playing the same rotation of game words, you'd become quicker at recalling them too. I've also got a better than average memory, so I'm frequently told. I certainly don't get perfect scores every game, but I have played a few "perfect" games. I still have some mental glitches too. I'm daunted when playing Delon & other top players. I make sure I'm warmed up & psyched up before I take them on. Sometimes I wait a day before playing a round with a tough opponent. I've got a dinosaur of a computer, it's 2nd hand. My keyboard sometimes (not always) sticks on R's, I score better on words without R. I manually type in every answer. It is possible! I still play multiple words within words games, concentrating on the 7 letter words. I'm playing the same game words over & over, it's becoming less of a challenge, so I try to be faster. I compete against myself to get 100% in games with higher word counts. I still kick myself when I miss a simple three letter word. I don't think you realise how much time I waste sitting here playing these word games. Other players are blocking me en masse, so I have to play random games just to have a chance at encountering a top 20 player.

Look up your missed words & learn how to type properly before you accuse me of cheating Russella! Shame on you



I have just happened upon this post and I have to say it is the most fantastic response I have ever seen. Well done, I admire you.


I'm with CityDave on this! Extremely well-written explanation without anger and WITH understanding of how others may be viewing your success. I also admire your ability to remain calm and patient in the face of an openly adversarial suggestion and your thoughtful response to it! Applause

I've definitely found there are strategies that help you jump what you can write. I won't share details here, because I'm selfish, but stuff like tacking an S onto the ends of words helps.

I've also seen and missed enough odd words that I recognize them now and they're a part of my vocabulary.

Also it took me a while to realize escape clears the word list.

I particularly enjoy the idiom section of this fine website.
