Ssabreman,
Everyone knows that flatulence is the emission of not-so-fine particles!

I love the occasional possible answer that makes me stop and chuckle, just adds to the fun for me and stops me when I'm taking it too seriously.

I have a question regarding order of letter use when a word is spelled.
My last two vowels were a's and my newest two vowels were also a's.
I spelled a word with two a's and the a's removed were my newest two a's.
I would of preferred my oldest two a's to have been used for the word.
That would of made an o and a u my oldest vowels which I might then trade for a consonant if needed.
Need one more critter for Word Safari, llama.

It has always been the case that play uses the newer of two available letters, even though trading takes the older one. It can be very irritating when you are plotting your letters, and needs to be taken into account when playing a small words to manipulate your holding.

I was unaware, thought played & dropped letters would be treated the same way. Good information, thank you.

This is not an issue, just a suggestion.
I think it would be really great, if there was a place where we (the members) can exchange letters between us (even if it'd be limited to say, only 1 a day).

Trainload is an acceptable word for trading in but trainloads is not.

From the page where you submit letters: Valid words are those found in the FunTrivia dictionary, which includes all sorts of unusual and unexpected words. Note, however, that the FunTrivia dictionary does not include ALL plural forms or tense variations. You're going to have to get creative smile

Got caught in traffic on this one. Way too close to call.

5. Main_line
Your answer: a major thoroughfare that bears important traffic

a major thoroughfare that bears important traffic is the definition for "artery"

The correct answer was the principal route of a transportation system

I can understand how my incorrect option fits better with convertible, but given the options for "vehicle", what I chose was certainly viable.

14. Vehicle

Your answer: a car that has top that can be folded or removed

a car that has top that can be folded or removed is the definition for "convertible"

The correct answer was a conveyance that transports people or objects


It is certainly easy to see "vehicle" as the question, and "a car" as the first two words of an incorrect answer and choose that one. smile

For some reason my name and scores have disappeared from the monthly "Cumulative Scores". All was well yesterday, just gone this morning. I've 96 points this month but would really not want to lose the over 2500 total points I've accumulated.
Edited as I also noticed it shows my total score since game began as 2409 tho am certain it was over 2500.
My router lost the connection while playing my last word game of the day, not sure if that could somehow be related.
Problem solved, my gold membership had expired at midnight. Score is still 2409 so perhaps I was wrong about it being higher.
