But now I don't mind; it's sometimes an achievement for them that has taken a long time so I understand the celebration.
    Actually I played a game yesterday that had your name on it and 0 (ZERO) points! It made me worry what happened to you. Did you fall off your chair? The phone rang? The power went out? Or maybe you just pressed submit by mistake. It was a fun game with SUPERCYNICALNESSES, and I would have been happier matching you than worrying what happened to you!

      Thanks for your concern, mdyak. I probably have 3 of those games almost every week. It could be that the phone rings, my wife talks to me, I get a text and think I better check it, someone shows up at the door, the wifi craps out or I just get transfixed on finding a word and time expires. I used to think it was an embarrassing (still is somewhat) disaster but now my reaction is: Oh well...
      Also, nice word find. I found it before so probably would've seen it. I thought it should be worth more than 34 pts but maybe I'm being supercynical.

        I enjoy blotting the records of anyone who has accused me of cheating over the years the most. TOOMANYCHEATERS eluded me for some time since he hardly ever sets any best/longest records but I finally got him a while ago. It's satisfying to better other long word players' records and any best word record over 20 pts.
        Thank you for responding. I will make sure not to do this again in the future. Happy playing, lalatan.

          There is at least one exception. I enjoy seeing when and how someone beat my scores. Doesn't embarrass me a bit. Just a learning experience that one can grow from.

            I'm part of the 600 club now! I just bested my previous highest score and word count. 632 points and 129 words! I know the high scores are only temporary; I'm just happy to be improving. Happy playing Naboka.

            It was cooler today at 72.

              Awesome. Expect to see you hitting 700 some day.

              Crazy how personal high scores can jump by large amounts. You look down and wonder WTF!

                My intent for writing what I did was not to censure anyone. There are no forum rules here and there's no moderator. Naboka wasn't sure if there were any so I wanted to let him know there are no formal rules and at the same time wanted to commend him on his choice to consider the feelings of others. I cited my choice to encourage him to keep on doing so. Then, not wanting to set myself up as a paragon of virtue, I included my hierarchy of satisfaction in bettering certain other players' records and my former reaction to seeing others celebrating their victories over me.

                I included the parenthesized section in my post about possible exceptions just in case I ever forgot to edit the usernames of players I beat on screenshots I had posted. I think it's wonderful you consider the feelings of others when doing so yourself.

                Congrats to you both on setting new personal bests! Enjoy the games.

                • Well after 26,628 games of 4X4, I finally broke the 1,000 point threshold which has been a long time goal of mine!! Next on the achievement bucket list is to get 200 words - I’ve gotten 199 twice

                    Oh, I knew it was a good game, but it didn't feel like anything different from previous "good games" I've played. I definitely hope to hit 700 one day. Thank you, and happy playing.

                      Wow, congrats!! I'll go out a limb (a very solid one, I suspect) and say that's probably the most pts ever swiped in a 4x4 game.

                        Thank you! I’m not sure if Megaword has ever gotten that many points swiping; I’m sure if he practiced he could.
