We can get rookie to lock the 'sixy rollo' thread or kill it (whatever).
Can someone who knows how set up a vote please (oh effpee...ee ) which we can leave open for a week or until we have at least X votes cast ?

One thing that hasn't really been decided is a common dictionary. I, personally, am against using ONELOOK,
PS. I don't know how to set up a vote.

Re fp's dictionary comment:
Sadly there is no free Australian english dictionary online (Macquarie is a pay service) but we could use a combination of Merriam-Webster and Oxford if we need limitation?

If the host is available and I'm available why should we (or anyone) need to wait for a third player?
edit - there is obviously a big deffierence between "Here are 4 words to get the ball rolling. They're shots in the dark anyway. Score them so we can move along" and "holy carp I have 4 words on my list. Here I'll submit all 4 of them."

Apologies in advance if phrasing appears to be biased towards an outcome but I have made a genuine attempt to be neutral. I have included all options that I could identify from postings.
Please refer to the poll at the top of the page - Note that multiple selections may need to be made for the 2nd and 3rd questions.
I don't know how we can view or collate responses but I'm sure that something sensible can be sorted out. Please respond - ta

That's pretty much the only reason why I voted to keep participant scoring - it's what makes the game different to MasterWord.
I guess it should be noted that if we do eliminate scoring on ROLLO then we'd be eliminating proofs as well by default.

This would give a handicap to new players, as they'll only gain points until they get good enough to get a word. However, there would have to be some benefit to whoever gets a word (such as a modest bonus that is not stolen from the host), or the host would have to be chosen a different way, as no one would want to finish a word otherwise.
It might work the other way around, with the host stealing points from the participants, but that would hurt newcomers.
Of course, doing this would require a bit of tuning to get the scoring balanced.
