Okay I am not in a really good mood right now...I was entering words into the w-w game and I had done about 25 when the game decided to reset back and only take 4 of the 25 losing 21 words I had already entered. This is not the first time it's done this but usually its a word or two not 21!!!!!!

Has anyone else had this issue?????

What is up with this????

Why is it doing this????

Can it be fixed please, please, please.....

I like playing the game and usually will spend about 40 minutes doing this game each morning before I go off to work...but if it continues to lose my words I'm so done!


Shame on you

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.

What it does to me, is to first appear to accept a valid word, by adding it to the list on the screen (playing on a laptop), and then immediately removing it and announcing that it was not able to record it properly (I can't remember the wording right now). It does this routinely, and I think it is when I have entered a bunch of valid entries quickly (well, I think quickly), as if its back-end is too busy to process the data. I haven't bothered complaining about it, because I rarely get a useful response. (And that's another issue.)

I first reported this in 2014. Admin isn't very helpful. I don't think they read the forums at all! Brick wall

When it happens to me, I do something else for a while, then go back to WWW.
