MNU-menu. NXI-anxious. LFE-golfer.
Nov 24th, 2009 at 01:42 GMT
Menu does not have MNU consecutively, and why are you commenting those here? They are all acceptable answers.

NOMINATED. I kept trying Czech Republic / Czechoslovakia to no avail

LFE - pilfer. Awesome quiz.

Cool quiz. I did get syzygy, but couldn't get some of the relatively simpler words! I enjoyed trying though. Good job.

FTW = for the win = this quiz!!!

"bulrush" is the more common spelling of "bullrush". WDL is missing "bowdlerize" and other variants of that word. It's perhaps nomination-worthy, but I'd want to make sure that the answers are exhaustive.

craftwork (I tried kraftwerk too :))
Nov 27th, 2009 at 02:01 GMT
Another one you could add...HPU -- jodhpurs.

The idea for this quiz is great, but it was poorly executed. For each one of these, there are multiple possible answers that aren't excepted. Granted, some are obscure words, but others are very common. It isn't very fun when you think of something that works and it doesn't show up. I recommend that you go back to your source and make sure you copy
of the possible answers (and get rid of the ones with too many). Then and only then will this be a great quiz.

Czech and Xhosa are the names of those languages and peoples in English, not natively, and therefore should count for this quiz.

I too was alarmed that boWDLerize wasn't accepted. Also, wiLDWood is in Merriam-Webster.
Dec 28th, 2009 at 01:20 GMT
I too tried pilfer and Czech - they should count. I love the idea of this quiz though - great fun.

sauerkraut works for rkr!
Jan 3rd, 2010 at 06:13 GMT
I agree, amazing idea, but gotta get the full lists. The program Zyzzyvas compares pretty favorably with your site, though.

Cabmen should work for "BME", Unhip for "NHI", etc. Eczema's a particularly evil word but these quizzes need a few hard ones. Overall, good quiz but there's still other answers to put in.

good quiz, and don't let the complainers get you down. Though you might modify it based on some of the objections. I too tried "pilfer" (and "rolfed"), but when it didn't work, I moved on. I automatically ruled out proper nouns, Scrabble habit.
May 9th, 2010 at 14:40 GMT
All acceptable answers (from my source) have been added. Sorry for the delay.
Jul 20th, 2010 at 14:13 GMT
craze, life, weedless, menu, barking, marking, backtrack,etc. Way too many correct answers that are not accepted.
Jun 30th, 2011 at 19:40 GMT
Anybody else try wolfenstein for LFE?
Jul 2nd, 2011 at 20:44 GMT
Anyone else besides me get "quokka" for OKK?
