What's This?

Check Dictionary.com or Merriam-Webster for a different word every day. You can also follow them on Twitter (Dictionary.com & Merriam-Webster) for updates and word nerd shenanigans. Correctly use the word in your posts throughout the day. Each time you correctly use it, you will be awarded one point. The object is to add up your points and get prizes, detailed just below.


  • You may use whichever Word of the Day you'd like in multiple posts per day. You can use both or either words. There is a maximum of one point earned per word per post, however -- multiple uses of the same word in one post will only earn one point, but you can use both WotDs in a single post for two points.
  • Variant forms of a root word are acceptable, e.g. if the Word of the Day is "baffling," using "baffled" is acceptable.
  • Improper usage of words will not be awarded with points.
  • Posts in LASKY do NOT count.
  • Points are accumulative per player, not per character.
  • Players are responsible for keeping their own logs of points. Logs should, at minimum, include:
    [LIST][*][b][url=linktopost]Date of Post[/url][/b] - Word
    [i]"One sentence excerpt with the [b]Word[/b] of the Day bolded.[/i][/LIST]
  • Accumulated Word of the Day points expire after 365 days after a player becomes inactive.


When you have enough, post a link to your Word of the Day log in the Maintenance Thread along with a description of the prize that you want.

You must save your points. You can't hit fifteen and say, "Okay, I want it, gimmie" and then continue from there. Every time you ask for a prize, the number of points will be subtracted from your total and you'll have to start over.
  • 10 Points: Move an existing custom title or icon or edit an existing title.
  • 50 Points: Permanent custom title in unlimited colors.
  • 100 Points: Permanent custom icon.
