Default [Dixonary] Dixonary] Round 2876 Progress Report (ABOMASUM)

Fellow players,

I am always amazed - well, by now perhaps not amazed, but in any case impressed - by the creativity of the definitions people come up with in this game. Those submitted by players Barrs, Bourne, Cunningham, Hale, Madnick, Shefler, Stevens and Widdis (so far) are no exception.

While the quality is up to (if not above) its usual standard, with about 17 1/2 hours to go their quantity leaves a bit to be desired. Therefore, I'm extending the deadline for definitions by four hours, to 1 pm U.S. Eastern Standard Time or four hours past the table in the original call for definitions. Hopefully that will allow U.S. easterners who were out late carousing on Saturday and slept in on Sunday time to recover, U.S. westerners time to get up and think about this, and those in other parts of the world four more hours for whatever. The original table, which does NOT include the four-hour extension, is copied below:

As usual:

- If you know what ABOMASUM means, please let me know by private email. You can also send a definition. You just can't vote.

- If you sent a definition and your name is in the above list, all is well. (You should have also received a confirmation.)

- If you sent one and your name isn't in the list, please send it again. It might also be good to send a public message to the effect that you did that.

- If you didn't send one yet, please do. New players: Please send your cleverly contrived definition of ABOMASUM to emallach (AT) verizon (DOT) net <mailto:emallach (AT) verizon (DOT) net>, not by public reply to this message or to the earlier call for definitions, so other players won't see it and won't know who that definition is from.

I don't plan to change the deadline for voting, so the interval between definitions being due and the voting deadline will now be 44 hours rather than 48.
