Topic: Serious hitches!

Same here! I reported on Idiom of the Day (lack of) recognition in one of the other threads. However, my WordHub games are messed up also!
Topic: Problems with article of the day and other links

I've been noticing the same problem re Idiom of the Day since yesterday (Fri.) - it counts as an article and only awards 5 points. This issue exists at both the website and the app.
Topic: Points changed on articles
Posted: Saturday, November 24, 2018 5:16:44 AM
I think it's due to some (temporary... I hope) error at TFD. I'm only getting 5 neurons/points for idioms of the day - instead of 30 neurons as per usual - and since yesterday, it's not showing up in my Latest activities list that I've read an idiom.

TheFreeDictionary is a fantastic website! Lots of free dictionaries and encyclopaedias (including specialized ones) in one place - all stringed together just by clicking on a word (unless you're using the app - but maybe that function will be included in the app too in the future...)! Depending on your settings, all this can be experienced without much ad intrusions.

Can't you recommend the site but just warn them of the forum? It's pretty tucked away and is not a main feature anyway. Personally, I don't visit the forums much and I would continue using TFD without the message boards, if there were none. It is not integral to the experience or am I wrong?

Hi L. Rai! Congrats on reaching 1M neurons! I guess that's how you got a "10" in the red/yellow graphic close to your name?
I could tell you how to get many points in a relatively short amount of time but I think if you just visit my profile (the main one, not the forum profile) and read the top line in my latest activities log, you'll see how (I think Bookman and some other games also generate a lot of neurons though).

You can use Google to search for relevant pages from specific sites only by using the format seen here: https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ei=v6z5WeT2K-ag6AT5kq34Cw&q=Adventist+site%3Aforum.thefreedictionary.com&oq=Adventist+site%3Athefreedictionary.forum.com (just change the search word(s) to something relevant to what you're looking for).

Thank you. We are aware of this issue and will add it to the list in the next update.


That's good to hear! It's annoying when the game doesn't accept such a common word. Will you also sort out the other omissions etc. that have been awaiting a fix for so long, such as those on this thread with more Word Hub omissions etc.? Neurotic has a list which has grown very long...

When I log in with same account at another device, could I still use it?


Yes, but you don't remain logged in anymore at wherever you logged in last. At least, one has to log back in at the iOS app if you've logged in at the website/www after you last used the app and wants to use TFD that way again,
Topic: arrgh w-w glitch is so frustrating!!!!!!

Hi L.Rai!

Are you playing via the website or through the app? I'm playing via the app and don't remember ever having had this problem.

I'm sorry to hear about your nuisance. I would be annoyed or frustrated too.

Hello,

As we know, the maximum number of letters in this game is seven, and each letter is contained in a circle; but in some cases there are eight circles and seven letters.
Is the eighth circle, bearing no letter, a kind of jolly? Does somebody know how to use it?

Thank you,
moabge


This sounds very much like an issue I encountered a while back and described at http://forum.thefreedictionary.com/postsm980128_WirdHub---blank-spaces-and-21-points-for-7-letter-word.aspx#980128. Did you also get 21 points?
