    I'm not sure I understand. You want us to come up with words using the letters in "Happy Thanksgiving" only once, and any letter that doesn't appear in there we can use twice?

    {cb2}ShadeSlayer November 23 2008 11:22 PM EST

    When posting please type in character name...

    also "happy" and "thanksgiving" may not be used.

    {cb2}ShadeSlayer November 23 2008 11:22 PM EST

    No the letters appearing once can be used twice, all other letters in the words may be used once.

    PearsonTritonRaveshaw November 23 2008 11:24 PM EST

    So we make up our own words? Or spell out words that can already be made up with the letters in Happy Thanksgiving?

    OK so I thought I'd be a nice guy and do this for y'all. I'm going to list the letters and how many times they can each be used. Letters that do not appear can not be used.

    A - 1
    G - 1
    H - 1
    I - 1
    K - 2
    N - 1
    P - 1
    S - 2
    T - 2
    V - 2
    Y - 2

    rave, there is 2 A's in happy thanksgiving. No entry from me yet.

    Wizard'sFirstRule November 24 2008 8:25 AM EST

    and there is 2 i and only 1 k.

    blackshadowshade November 24 2008 8:26 AM EST

    Rave's list looks right to me. Now to find a long word ...

    blackshadowshade November 24 2008 8:38 AM EST

    Okay, the good words all seem to be there already, so let's try this:

    "Happythanksgiving" occurs about 10,000 times on Google Search, so does it qualify as a word? :p


    (My character is Lovefer, if you condone my rule bending!)

    blackshadowshade November 24 2008 8:39 AM EST

    (triple post) BTW, I also haven't transgressed against the actual rules posted, since I HAVE used the letters once (sometimes more). ;)

    Why are people posting more than one word?
    No entry yet.

    {cb2}ShadeSlayer November 24 2008 11:04 AM EST

    not sure why people are posting one word per post... ONE POST PER PERSON and ONE WORD PER PERSON.

    READ THE RULES LOL.

    MONIES WILL BE SENT SOON AFTER THE CONTEST ENDS ON THE 30TH OF THE MONTH...

    :)

    "EACH PERSON MAY ONLY ENTER ONCE, SO PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU CHOOSE YOUR WORDS CORRECTLY."

    perhaps it is the fact that in your original post you never stated that and even used the plural words. ; )

    {cb2}ShadeSlayer November 24 2008 3:51 PM EST

    I apologize for the miscommunication, you may enter only one word. The posts that have more than one word, i will pick the longest word and that will be your entry.

    Wizard'sFirstRule November 24 2008 11:28 PM EST

    there is only 1 a and 1 i as vowels, and y if we count that, it is very difficult.

    yes, those are words that the spellcheck don't recognize. can the admin add them to the spellcheck? :P I doubt anyone else would ever use it though.
