Hate to be a game-cop, but steam was used yesterday............. Confused

so from meats:

teams


So that makes me wonder: is there any rule pertaining to how recently a word has been used? And if not -- should there be a rule of some kind? It might make it easier to follow if there was..............

Crazy thing is I've never seen the Cubit owner, Sunshines2day anywhere around. Shrug! There should be a reasonable time that we can all agree on. For the most part I think it's by accident if any of us reuse a word too soon; I know it is when I do. Shrug!

I usually look back a day or two before I post.

I usually just check the current page for repeat words. . . -_-

I do the same thing -- check the current page. But this group can get very active -- using up a couple of pages every day. So if we're near the top of a page, or if the previous page is the same day, then I go back and check the previous page as well.

Well -- I've gone back and checked. We make anywhere from three to eleven posts per day here. I was wrong about using up a couple of pages every day, when we're very active -- but we frequently spill over from one page to the next on any given day.

So we could make a general rule to check the current page and the previous page? Or we could make a rule to check a minimum of ten posts? Or we could make a rule to check *today* and *yesterday*?

Any thoughts?

Christine -- I've never seen the Cubit-owner here either. That's odd, isn't it? But I guess it means we can make our own rules!! Big Grin And yes -- it's always by accident when anyone re-uses a word. And we've all done it. Shrug!

I second that motion! I agree

Mary Ann, I think that is a good standard rule for us to use. ~ Do a quick scan over the last two pages, it only takes a minute of our time. Thumbs up

I think going back 10 posts sounds reasonable since we add and remove letters and it is not likely to be able to make the same word again after that many changes. Also, if you go into your preference page you can change the number of posts per page. Mine is set to the highest number, so I am only on page 4 with 1,810 posts on this thread.

Mary, You're right; I forgot about the page thing. We might all have different settings. 10 or so posts does seem reasonable. At the least, take a look back at what has been most recently used. I think if everyone will take a quick look back, it should help a lot.

I'm good with two pages or ten posts -- whichever works best for each of us. I have short pages -- so I'm on Page 91.

Fair enough; it makes sense. Seems like a bit of a nuisance, but that's probably just me being stubborn. I should get used to it.
