Change in rules: When a user is drawing a accurate draw that deals with sleeping feedback has explained to me that drawing ZZZ's are allowed.
This won't prevent some people voting on them, which as far as I know, is also OK.
True, when I get sleeping draws I will not draw ZZZ's because I do not want votes against me.
If I hear another player try and tell me Z isn't a letter, I shall go insane!
* elfy must have missed that meeting....
This is how I try to remember it:
Z is a letter, Zzzzz is a symbol.
They removed the "ZZZ" example from the rules section just over a year ago, I think.
I'd still consider it against the rules though, as it still says "Never use letters - whether or not they are related to the puzzle".
Don't see why they'd allow it; pretty poor decision.
Yes, the ZZZ example hasn't been quoted in the rules for a while now. Since the rule change I've been quite weary about voting for ZZZ, usually I don't bother.
Agreed. As ZZZ is an onomatopoeia, why is it allowed if other onomatopoeia like "buzz", "moo" and "quack" aren't allowed?
All I can say is email feedback, I don't know what your problem is. firstname.lastname@example.org
I have always found feedback is very quick to respond to me when it's a technical issue. I have always put 'technical issue' or 'technical problem' in the subject line so that it doesn't get confused with complaints from other players who may have been blocked or banned or whatever.
I have always seen the use of ZZZZZzzzzz`z as a noise a low level zurrrrrr noise you get when people are about to snore but not quite
Yeah, that's what I always thought. Oh well, seems to be normal practice now
I have been told by an admin that the use of V W is a symbol and does not stand for Volks Wagen Peoples car lol
I have also been warned to warn on a Giant M for Mc Donalds ...... a little consistency would not go amiss.
Currency symbols are a pain to convey.
I tend to draw currency symbols using a single stroke, otherwise it could be seen as a letter if drawn separately. For example the dollar symbol $. Most people draw the S-shape first before putting a line (or two lines) through it, which may seem to others like the artist is writing. Similar could be said for the Euro symbol €.
Just my way of doing it anyway
I tend to draw a number before the symbol, that way my old memory won't get penalized for mistakenly drawing the letter before the strikes. You would have to be incredibly juvenile to confuse S1 or E2 for letter violations.
I like this rule, but i dont think arrows should be alright to use either then.
why not? arrows are merely to draw attention to a particular part of the picture, and if it's a nice complicated one with lots of detail then it can't hurt to help the poor struggling guessers out a little, surely? Also, what if the word was "Arrow"? :twisted:
