@Sphinx Does anybody by chance know a trick to get the box art to correctly display on mobile browsers? I tried nbsp and pipe symbols already. i.sstatic.net/rj7c0zkZ.png

I have no idea, I think I was also struggling with this but have never found a way
@LukasRotter it looks like this on my mobile browser. Is that as intended?

@juicifer Nice find. Is "wrought" a wp-def connector? (I'm assuming "work" here means "to form", so the wordplay formed (wrought) the definition, but do correct me if I'm wrong)
> (transitive) To shape, form, or improve a material.
(Based on Wiktionary)
Although now I'm not quite sure since that's technically a different sense of "form"
yeah I guess so? I've always read "wrought" as "brought about"; I didn't even know it was a past-tense form of "work" until now
I want to say this is an ESL moment but it's not like I'm good at my native language either
lol
@juicifer I see...

I had a friend who was brought up speaking english who always used to say that english was his zero-th language because first language implied a level of competency that he didn't feel he had
Hah

If your second language is less fluent than your first language, shouldn't your zeroth language be one in which you have an exceptionally high level of competence?
@Sphinx How interesting, among other things I haven't figured out what that backward S is doing
@GarethMcCaughan Lol I did think of that too
