Strangely, dbx is a valid "word". As a non-capitalised trademark it avoids being excluded under the proper noun rule.

Any more information Matt? I don't like this at all. What is "dbx"? I'm struggling to understand - plenty of proper nouns, product names and companies, are trademarked in lower-case, but I doubt any others are aptovalid.

Ok, so in terms of "dbx" being a valid word, it's not representing a company or a product, but basically a technology. Presumably we're supposed to announce it "duh-buhks" or something too.

A la Phonejacker!

It does say trademark next to it in the dictionary so I guess it is a product really. I'd like to think that Susie would disallow it on the show due to it being a proper noun that happens to be written without its capital letter, if you see what I mean. Or indeed due to it being stupid.

PH and EMF are in all the old Scrabble books, DBX presumably wasn't in any of their source dictionaries. But DBX is in lower case in the ODE so why wouldn't it be allowed? It's a generic trademark but so is HOOVER etc.

I would say that foreign currencies are basically proper nouns with without a capital letter and they're allowed, so why not?

I think I've seen DBX on the electronic game as well (the ultimate arbiter of truth of course).

Basically I streamlined a few things including:-

1) How the player list is updated when a player logs in or out.
2) How the game list is updated when a new game starts/end.
3) How logins are handled.
4) Size of the client itself (down from 750kb to about 560kb).
5) Sizes of some excessively large avatars.

The combination of all of those seems to have been enough to get the bandwidth back under control.

The times on game reports are a bit confusing. "Date 21 March 2010 09:48PM" - 09 screams morning to me. Maybe 24 hour time would be a better solution overall?

Bug or not, am unsure.
Played TopDog the other day, realised it was the numbers game, so i shut it down, not having the inclination to play round after round of maths.
Since then, whenever i've logged in, even if its 2 days later and even though i've played TopDog since then albeit letters / conundrum rds, this numbers game opens up and starts every time. I can't seem to get rid of it.
Thanks to all at apto towers for reading and hopefully solving.

I know this isn't a totally satisfactory solution, but wouldn't the easiest thing be to just lose a few rounds and get the game over with?

or something similar. Makes Happenings read a lot better, but too many links? Hmm.
Related to the above (from Feature Requests), if you refresh the page after a GOTW nomination the associated happening will repeat itself on the homepage.
See this Ryan-Kirk game which has two real GOTW nominations, but three additional phantom nominations recorded on the homepage.

And maybe even two emails? I've received 2 emails saying "Innis Carson has voted your game for game of the week" and then another one exactly the same. Clicking both links in the emails take me to the same game so no idea why I get two emails from the same vote.

Maybe the nominate button simply sends the server a request for the current page, with the nomination data added to the URL. If so, then clicking Refresh would cause a repeat nomination. Perhaps.

There's no doubt about it. The &gotwnom=<uid> variable is clearly appended to the URL. I just didn't get technical as it's an easy fix and I was just exposing the problem. Not at all dissimilar to the double-comment-posting refreshes, just two different methods of sending the data, one GET and one POST.

Was playing a hypergoatdown against Josh and my internet cut out on the last round. The next day I finished the game and got a pencil and a baseball cap in round 20. At the end of the game it said "you have got 3 pencils, a baseball cap, a pencil and a baseball cap" or similar. These should be added together.

Not sure if this is a bug but players in classic games now appear as bots and when the games are finished (and this is a bug) they stay in the players list. I even clicked on one to challenge it (Jackie McLeod bot) to a conundrum attack. The "bot" accepted but wouldn't start the game.

Not sure if this is a bug or not, but in my Daily Duel game today (Game 213349, 5:47 am), the game wasn't accepting any offerings I made in the letters rounds (RASIED, SOMBRE, MOUSE etc), the game declared them invalid and I scored no points for them.

not sure if this should be put in bug thread or suggestion thread, but in long games you get a scroll bar when the items go down too far for the screen, but it doesnt actually scroll all the way down.

Edit: And btw Charlie, the hard refresh fixes the problem in lexplorer.

This game: http://www.apterous.org/viewgame.php?ga ... 0#r3056160

Me and RB both pencilled FAN in R9 and CUR in R17, but the homepage currently just says Matt Morrison next to each pencil listing as opposed to RB's name as well.

Although I was pleased with my performance, I don't think I'm supposed to be hammering the metamax...

Seems to be an issue for everyone's duel

Should games against bots (i.e. against Prune) count for widest margin statistics? Would be much better if this stat was human only.

The March Duel league table has erased the previous 30 days results, therefore Bob would appear to have won the month.

Also, yesterdays results were for March and not April as is displayed

A la Phonejacker!

It does say trademark next to it in the dictionary so I guess it is a product really. I'd like to think that Susie would disallow it on the show due to it being a proper noun that happens to be written without its capital letter, if you see what I mean. Or indeed due to it being stupid.
I would say that foreign currencies are basically proper nouns with without a capital letter and they're allowed, so why not?

I think I've seen DBX on the electronic game as well (the ultimate arbiter of truth of course).
Oh yeah, and letters of the Greek alphabet.

I'm not sure how The Guardian managed to score 11 points in round 4 of this game

I have a feeling that this is already known... but Omelette doesn't seem to work in Greek. The letters which come up seem to be English letters, which means it's not possible to declare a word, and the game crashes.

Low/negligible priority for a fix, as I'm sure I'm the only person ever to have attempted to play Omelette in Greek, and I was only trying it out of curiosity.

The "today's games" times are an hour behind. Maybe it hasn't "sprung forward" yet to British Summertime.

C1: SIGNATURE (18) ["9; not written down"]
C2: SEATING (7)
Score: 108–16 (max 113)

Another niner for Adam and yet another century. Well done, that man."

Easiest numbers game ever (R14) displays incorrectly in the recap.
