Quote from: nebo113 on August 28, 2020, 05:56:09 AMNYT dropped SET, so in addition to the crossword, I'm been trying Spelling Bee. However, I'm frustrated because it rejects perfectly good words, solid English language words that are in dictionaries. Any body else doing Spelling Bee?

I keep going until I reach the Genius level, although occasionally I fall a bit short. I have assembled lists of words that are not accepted and I have emailed the NYT puzzlemasters about this a few times. In some cases, they have added words from the list. I encourage you to email them about words that they do not accept--the more of us who do so, the better the chances that they will instate them! I have also emailed them about reusing the same puzzle and just changing the letter in the center. The reply indicated that they are concerned about reaching the ceiling for variants of the puzzle. I send my emails to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Last time, they informed me that words suggestions should be sent to: email@example.com

As for words that don't seem common... from yesterday's puzzle: boba, callaloo, clonal (I mean, sure, it's the adjective, but when have you ever come across it?), colcannon, and llano.
