EQITRIV'S LIPOGRAM WORD PLAY

* Confession * I'd never even heard the word before.

Thanks to Eqitriv for an interesting and - for me - enlightening word puzzle.

This isn't April 1st...but I feel that a con has been perpetrated. I'll admit the WP was fascinating and very enjoyable, but I also had never heard the word lipogram or of the folks in the WP before. Yet they all exist. Most educational!. My Google button is exhausted at this point. However...when I entered the name EQITRIV in the Player Directory no player page appeared. Not even a "no longer has a public profile". Simply "no search results - please try again". When I was taking the WP I thought it was the type of WP that Garrybl/Barry might do. Barry, is EQITRIV your alter ego?

No not me. I DID write a lipogram for Xmas but someone beat me to the punch so I shelved it.
So you are very astute Linda.

It was offbeat, but not impossible, very goggleable which made a big difference. I did "so-so" for me which is just fine.
Hat's off for an inventive puzzle.

Thanks for the feedback, I have been on Sploofus since February but haven't done my public profile yet.... I do exist however!
I have only been platinum for about a month so this was my first attempt at the word puzzle. I have however got over 100 quizzes published... take a look at some of them.

It was an excellent puzzle --and given that it was your first it was even more laudable.
More please!

It was not what I expected, but it was good, better than many.

I also had to do pre-research about the topic.
Overall, I fared well on the leader board.
Congrats to the new author for a challenging and educational puzzle.

From what I learned [I hope]- a final thought about lipograms:

As I now understand lipograms, It is finding words that don't use a certain letter rather that just omitting the letter from the spelling. Until today I had never heard the word before. Thanks, Eqitriv, for the education and the fun WP. Now before you do another WP, please fill in info about yourself...pretty please.
