View Full Version : [Dixonary] FYI: No Hakspek on tapcis.com

I almost missed the deadline for submitting a def this round because
the new word did not post on tapcis.com -- as far as I could tell. I
even did a search on hakspek once I realize it had been posted and
only found some NADs.

Any advice from those of you more tech-savvy than me about how to
prevent this in future?

Or is it: play on tapcis.com at your own risk?

Hi Nancy,

>Or is it: play on tapcis.com at your own risk?

I just finished a new message to the group about this (triggered by your
e-mail - thanks, BTW!). To cut it short: it is not. This was entirely my
fault. I tried to save myself some keystrokes - clicked reply on a Cory
message, edited the subject, removed the quote and started typing. Bad
idea - the information that I replied to another message was apparently
retained under the hood, and forwarded to the Tapcis.com Forum.

IMO, it's the dealer's responsibility to ensure that the messages arrive at
all venues. I had planned to check the arrival of the new word message on
tapcis.com, but I was too tired to stay up yesterday, after posting da
woid - and this morning, I had forgotten.

As the Catholics say: Mea culpa! Mea culpa! Mea maxima culpa!

Best, Hugo

Nancy,

As Hugo has already posted, the new woid posting *did* show up on
TAPCIS.COM. But since he "replied" to the results posting from the
previous round, even via email, the reply ended up threading under the
previous thread. You can see it here:

http://www.tapcis.com/forums/showthread.php?s=327949c8f5b6dcff78769ef3b7b5bd64&t=356

For all dealers, if you are posting the word by email, you *MUST*
generate a new email, rather than use your client to "reply" to a
previous one and change the subject line.

Posting the new woid on tapcis.com (if you can) is recommended to
avoid dealing with this (and enable easier email replies to your
registered tapcis.com email address, too!)

Hugo, forgive yourself. It's only three weeks and we all have to learn a
whole new set of conventions about what works and what doesn't.
