1:10 PM
I don't see a 60 or 80?
 
there
 
(thanks)
 
1: Wipe out period of almost order
 
60,80: Ersatz Elevator?

1:14 PM
How?
 
It's a slang term (American, I believe)
No idea about origin or why that specific number though
 
I always thought it meant cancel, mostly
 
2: Not some
 
Contact 2?
 
damnit :|
 
1:15 PM
2: every?
 
2 ✔️
 
(Also I'm guessing the 1 checkmark for example was emoji or something but there was only 1 contact before the pass and the guess was incorrect, so I'm assuming it's gone now)
 
Yep
2': ∫ + object
2'': ∫∫ + a
 
50, 51, 60. SA, NME, NRG
 
c50, 51, 60
 
1:18 PM
50: Essay, 51: Enemy, 60: Energy
 
Yup
 
I think like half of those are rocket league teams
 
> half of three
 
1: Expunge?
 
2: ..., for example
1 no
3: Allegiant faction
nvm wrong crystal
 
1:23 PM
I'd contact 2 but what I have in mind doesn't exactly fit
 
Clue for 2: It's probably unfair in that it's really obvious
 
Well if it wasn't for the latter part...
 
my only thought is Ellipsis, but the second half seems very worng
 
9. Not deciduous
 
9: evergreen
 
1:24 PM
Yup
-2. ...
 
-2: elipsis?
 
-2 is not ellipsis (the clue is just "-2")
 
2: even?
6: Enormity?
@Sherlock
need to step away for a standup for ~5 minutes, willing to pass anything currently on the starboard if someone has a bright idea
 
4. 4-letter adjective that's a substring and descriptive of a 5-letter word
(no idea if that's too broad, will see)
Contact 1
 
Sorry
Had to step away for a bit
@Sconibulus 6 is not enormity
Also, was 5 answered?
 
1:31 PM
Nope (just starred it)
 
contact 5 maybe
contact 6 maybe
 
(fyi for Gareth's sake, there was a clue previously for "really bad" which was egregious)
 
ok
@Sp3000 Just to make sure I've correctly understood your terminology, do you consider ABCD a substring of XABCD and of ABCDX but not of e.g. ABCXD?
 
Yeah (alternatively, I could make it clearer by saying "suffix" actually)
 
and the short word is definitely descriptive of the long one? (I ask because I have something in mind for which I'm not sure that's quite right)
 
1:36 PM
came back
 
Yeah, pretty sure the description is apt
 
pass 6
 
my guess is that 6 is EXECRABLE
 
@Sherlock9 ^
(checking if around)
 
6 is EXECRABLE
 
1:38 PM
yay
 
Thanks for pinging me
 
Sconibulus defending: E F
 
Oh wow, word of the day I guess
 
that should kill a lot of things
word of the day?
 
60: work
 
1:39 PM
Well, vocab addition of the day (although now that you're here I expect more to come :P)
-2 is golf's eagle
 
ah, I see
 
4 is [d]evil, not sure if other alternatives exist
 
60: Effort
 
(I was wondering whether you meant you'd been seeing it elsewhere)
@Sp3000 d/evil makes good sense. I'd been wondering about "easy peasy", you see :-)
 
My guess would be that 1 is era+dic[t]ate and goes
Ah, I see :P
 
1:40 PM
@ASCII-only do any of your clues survive now we have EF?
@Sp3000 your guess at 1 sounds very plausible
 
60 is EFFORT
 
@GarethMcCaughan Nope
 
@Sherlock9 status of 5 and 99? I guess 4 was EXECUTE and dies.
I meant 5 not 4
 
2 ✔️
 
99 dies, was EPHEMERAL
4 dies, was EXECUTE
 
1:41 PM
anyone want to guess the others?
 
@ASCII-only It's less than 100% clear to me what "Nope" and "2 yes" mean. Do you mean 2 lives, the others die, but ERADICATE isn't right for 1?
 
Allegiant is a book series, right?
 
Also 1 ✔️
 
(my guess would 2's guess of "ellipsis" from way back is correct, and none of ASCII's clues survive but will leave them to answer)
 
ah, OK, so they all die. I hadn't noticed anyone guessed 2.
 
1:43 PM
@Sconibulus It's part of a series, yes
 
thought so, but I've not read them
 
@Sp3000 no it was even >_>
 
100: does its job well
 
Ah, right. nvm
 
contact 100 maaybe
 
1:43 PM
100: Effective or Efficient
 
2': EVERYTHING, 2'': EVERYONE, 3: ERUDITE
 
100 is effective
 
12. Bubbly
 
contact 12
 
c12
 
1:44 PM
12: Effervescent
 
1. Girly
 
12. Yup
 
80: describable
 
contact 80
 
80: Effable
 
1:45 PM
2. Sewage
 
"we must grapple with the ineffable, and see if we might not be able to eff it after all"
 
3. Newt
 
2: effluvium?
 
80 is effable
 
@Sconibulus That occurred to me too. It's Dirk Gently, isn't it?
2 is not EFFLUVIUM
 
1:45 PM
I believe so
 
I think I know what 1 is getting at but can't remember which suffix of the two I have in mind
 
Never mind, forgot it was EF
Let me change my clue
 
5. Actor Zac
 
contact 5
 
1: Effeminate
 
1:47 PM
contact 5
 
5: Effron
 
1 was EFFEMINATE, yes
 
(I think it's single F for Efron but yup)
 
boldface?
 
Ack meant to edit not delete
 
1:48 PM
huh, I was about to contact that before it was removed
 
10: curse replacement
 
contact 10
I'm sure I saw my 3 on the starboard and now it's gone again...
 
10: Eff?
 
6. 6-letter checkout payment acronym
 
contact 6
(thanks to whoever starred 3)
 
1:50 PM
10: I had meant effing, but eff is close enough
 
6: EBIDAT?
 
We're at EF, but what's that?
 
oh, right
I don't quite remember
pass 6
 
EFTPOS
(electronic funds transfer at point of sale)
 
EFTPOS is correct
 
1:51 PM
(or maybe it's just "fund")
 
ahh, right
Sconibulus defending: E F F (surprise)
 
I have no idea what that is, but I'm not in the US, so go figure
contact 2
 
pass 2
 
2 EFFLUENCE?
or EXCREMENT
 
We're at EF, so not that latter :P
 
1:53 PM
Ah right
 
Well, were at EF. Now at EFF
@GarethMcCaughan (Checking if Gareth is around for 2, and 3 status)
 
did my chat die?
 
Nah, still here
 
Apparently
Welcome back
 
In the meantime, I'm just trying to think of EFF* words and coming up short
 
1:59 PM
21: noun of effective
 
14. Ease
Contact 21, I guess?
 
21: effect?
