Hi lalatan! Welcome back to the forums (if you are really back & not just taking a break from your break). Anyway, yes, maybe I should refer to myself as a microcelebrity.

erakis, maybe you're an "amateurish prigrammer", but I'm really impressed. I've never programmed a Boggle solver, so I have no idea how I'd rank in terms of speed, but your start-to-end times with a...

kate, thanks to the post of yours, I just found this word. I'm surprised that I remembered it.

I've heard that before, so I assume that any good cheater would know that & be able to get all the words (as long as they can be entered fast enough & WordTwist will accept them fast enough). Coming...

OK, I'm still thinking about this. It's easy enough to automate determining a minimum point score & number of words for a board before you decide to play it (with neglegible time). So, you only play...

I'm sure that you're right. With the right dictionary, a brute-force attack would be very simple to program. (My problem would be learning the necessary language.) Anyway, (and the deleted post...

From what I've seen in the past, I'd guess that, while the cheater is "removed" from the global lists, individual boards stats might remain. Thus, while you may have had the high score on a...

I've been a programmer, and I can understand the challenge & the satisfaction of automating something like this. (I assume that the same mindset is behind a lot of hacking.) Then again, I'd have a...

I didn't see the cheater's post, or I'd probably have been more upset too.

I'd suggest a separate trophy category for best cheater (with trophies covered with rotten fruit), but that would probably...

I see that you're back on top in total points & BestBogglerNA seems to be gone from the list. Thanks, admin!

If it's like the last cheater(s?) who did this, the admin will strip them of all trophies. Hopefully that happens again.

No problem. I've done that myself when reporting on points I got for a word.

Anyway, I was just lazy. I should have looked at the old high scores for 4x4. Going back a few months, the best I found...

bwt, I'm really sorry to hear about Jake. Hell, I didn't even know him & I'm tearing up. Maybe that's because I've been through it before, or that I've had other recent losses, or that I have two old...

Thanks, but I was wondering how DISCOMBOBULATING is worth 40 points in the 4x4. There must be different multipliers (and possibly max word scores) than 5x5. (This is really just idle curiosity, since...

I've played a lot of Boggle, starting with 4x4 & moving to 5x5. Scoring there was pretty much the same, based on word length only. When I started with WordTwist, I stuck with 5x5. I've adjusted to...

I guess the polar vortex is a standard circulation of really cold air in high altitudes around the poles, and what you're getting is some kind of instability that sends some of that air lower, both...

Ever get the feeling that WordTwist is trying to tell you something? On one board this morning, the best thing I found was FEBRUARY (although it didn't work, of course) and on the next board the best...

I occasionally like to say that I'm famous, but nobody knows it. That's kind of true in a weird way. I'm a mathematician (OK, a computational mathematician), and am widely known within a (very) small...

Sorry, I couldn't help myself. Anyway, I'm glad you made it through and faded back into relative obscurity. I'll have to add "don't get famous" to my list of New Year's...
