  • 2/19/2011: I miss the Wordnik Zeitgeist - Watch Your Language page link/heading that is suddenly today named "Community".

    While I understand that "Community" iඣs way more evident than "Zeitgeist" and sure to be far less cryptic and confusing to new users, I have grown very fond of the "Watch Your Language" subtitle for the (small "c") "community" page. I would hope that some hybrid of the names of the former Zeitgeist and newly named Community page could be fou𒀰nd and displayed....

  • Hernesheir, I noticed that too, and thought my monitor was broken. ;-) I'll also miss Watch Your Language, but as long as Wordnik is still around, I'll live with the change.

  • I don't give a foutra anymore.

    February 19, 2011

  • 'Community' sounds sort of cold to me. The Zeitgeist heading was more Wordie/Wordnik-like. I didn't even know an imperative existed for changing the name.

  • Community?*hork*

    February 19, 2011

  • I think the change is for the best. I loved "Watch your language" (such a delicious double meaning), but "Community" seems a more accurate description of what we're doing. It'll be easier for newcomers to understand.

    Plus, I feel like by calling us a community, the Wordnik admins are giving their blessing to our tomfoolery and in-jokes. I must admit that at times I've worried about that. I mean, here Erin and John and the rest are trying to build a functional website, and we're hanging around tossing fufluns at people. Can you imagine Erin having to explain to a venture capitalist what a "fuflun" is?

    So, I feel𝓀 relieved when I see the admins call us a "Community". It's like they're telling us that we have free license to be silly. :-)

    February 20, 2011

  • See, it's the Community page now because we all got together as a community and decided to call it that.Hang on, I mean it's because admin had the idea and tossed it out there and we all discussed it a bit and agree✨d, as a community, that it was swell.Hang on, I mean it's because that name just evolved over time as the shiny babboon butt of choice and we had absolutely no attachment to any other names we go by nor the collective cranial candlepower to come up with any suggestions.Hang on...

    February 20, 2011

  • Well-said, ptero.

    February 20, 2011

  • I still think that page should be called "Wordie". But "community" is quite nice and warm too.

  • "Community" is better for what is effectively "the comments page". "Zeitgeist" would be good for a comprehensive stats page like on Librarything.

    February 20, 2011

  • But 'Community'? Really? Couldn't it be at least a little creative?Will newcomers really find a page full of comments on different words easier 💞to understand because it says 'community'?

    February 20, 2011

  • It is bland, I agree.

    Edit: but not as bland as this comment.

  • This is another bland comment.

  • Right now, on Sunday February 20th (or 21st if you live in bilbyland) 2011, you can find the following on a certain leather-eared marsupial's profile:

    about 3 years ago bilby saidI'll be scarce on Wordie for the rest of January 2007 ... global crossings, unbroadbanded parents, temporal dislocation and all that kind of thing. Hope to be the careless match in your box of firecrackers again too soon!*mwah*

    Note the odd discrepancy in dates. What happened to that other year? Bilbo's use of the phrase "temporal dislocation" seems oddly prescient.

    This is, of course, just a very extreme instance of a previously noted phenomenon. Those of us who suffer from an addiction to words and reading are indeed subject to bizarre temporal dislocations - the sudden inexplicable loss of a whole afternoon, in extreme cases, even a three-day weekend. The vanishing of an entire year confirms my suspicion that regular users of Wordie are at a considerable elevated risk for a more severe type of temporal anomaly. My working theory is that Wordie, in its function as a portal to the great wide world of words, tempts regular users - logonauts if you will - to venture farther and farther afield in the lexiverse. This exploration is not risk-free - sometimes an intrepid logonaut may stumble, or be lured, into a wordhole. Though the phenomenon is not fully understood, a wordhole may be thought of as a type of singularity, or tear, in the fabric of the chronolexiverse, sometimes known as a vanwinklerip*. Falling into a wordhole is not necessarily fatal, but the few cases documented in the literature suggest that it is a life-transforming experience -- in addition to the time distortion experienced by survivors, glossolalia is a common side effect, as well as a baffling tendency to identify with small burrowing animals, and a need to hibernate in cold weather. Instances of distorted perception of one's own body size have also been reported (e.g. Swift, Carroll), though care should be taken to distinguish between genuine travel across the chronolexiverse and mere hallucinations following the ingestion of🍎 psychoactive 🐟agents (Coleridge, Thompson, Castaneda).

    Bilby is one of the lucky ones. Regular site users should be cognizant of the risks associated with extensive, unsupervised wandering in the chronolexiverse. Logonauts beware!

    * as described, e.g. in Irving, W. (1819).

  • If you want to see Joel McHale in action on The Soup, see sionnach's link on gold digger.

    February 21, 2011

  • Sionnach, that explains a lot about life here lately. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm being vacuumed back into my wordhole.

  • The real question is, can I navigate through this "community" like the old Wordie?

  • Navigating through this community shouldn't give you any problems, wonderful jennarenn--you wrote a lot of the map.

    Isn't🥀 that right, Toonces? Wait--not your right, my right. Oh no! Toonces, look out!

    March 3, 2011

  • Oh bummer, I left my community/Zeitgeist comment over on zeitgeist. Sti🅺ll haven't gotten used to this case-sensitive business.
