It seems that the players here have many different objectives when they play, related mostly to the many different stats that are affected by game play. Those who choose to skip a board are usually...

Regarding MegaWord's statement:

"I see Kozyol had 345 words and 1953 points for the all time high on 5x5. They played over 10,000 games. I don't necessarily believe that's legit, because there's was...

Thanks both of you, the flash player did it. I didn't try seeing if the timer stopped it normally, I just quit when it was apparent that the timer wasn't functioning normally.

unable to play today

I've attempted several games today (5x5) and can't play. I can type words in but the timer seems unusual, rather than displaying the time remaining it says "NaN seconds".

I started out playing on the Corner Gas site, more because I was a fan of Corner Gas than anything, it was the most fun of the games on there for me. When they stopped making episodes of Corner Gas...

Stephen, I can read two of your posts, one says that if I can read it I'm on the old server, the other that if I can read it I'm on the new server. Thought you'd want to know.

I guess lots, and 'know' lots of words that will work in here, but couldn't use them otherwise. I also tend to type faster than I would otherwise, and make the odd fortunate mistake. Well, I make...

That's funny, I'd probably enjoy using that algorithm myself then play the boards by hand. I spend about as much time looking through board stats cherry-picking as I do actually playing some days.
