    Issue— on the word chain game you can’t “duplicate” words anywhere in the game or it flags them.

    Are you seeing a duplicate reply in your profile that isn’t showing up on the thread? Because I’m not seeing anything flagged from my end.

    I can’t log in to the “general chat” board. I can get here through babynamegames board. But I can’t add topics to general chat or reply to posts in general chat.

    Is there a way to either remove a part of a post you posted or edit a thread you started! I realized I posted the original picture of my daughter in the Halloween costumes link, then tried to edit it! Then added the edited picture that I originally wanted to post!

    I think I’m having the same issue as Lilybell was last week. Certain threads think I’m not logged in, no matter how many times I login. Like, I can reply to this thread right now just fine, but there are a couple in the Baby Names Advice board that if I enter them, it just shows the “Login to reply” button, which takes me to the login page, which, after I log in, sends me back to the thread, but it still has the “Login to reply” button instead of a reply box. It’s only certain threads, though, and it seems like, in the past, when someone else replies to it, it resets itself and I can reply to it the next day or whatever. Not sure what the issue is, but it’s kinda weird…

    How do you browse through the names by meaning? I know a lot of authors use baby name sites, and that was always a feature that made me favor this one.

    Zera – Go here: http://babynamesworld.parentsconnect.com/meaning-search.html
    I’m not sure how to get there from the main page, but if you search any name, the option to do a meaning search pops up at the top. There might be a way to get there from the homepage too…

    I’ve had the issue with the site not thinking I’m logged in as well, though refreshing the page usually fixes it. It’s been such a random bug that I haven’t been able to get it reported, because it fixes itself. Please let me know if it happens again to anyone!

    How do we add pictures?

    To add pictures, you need to have them uploaded somewhere on the web. I use photobucket. Or if it’s on Facebook, you can right click the pic and “copy image location.”

    When replying or starting a thread here, click on the “img” button and paste in the URL, then click “okay.”

    On the old BabyNamesWorld design, you could save favorite names to a stored list. Ever since the redesign, that functionality appears to be missing. When do you plan to bring it back?

    Is there a way to report spam on this site?

    I was also wondering the same thing as the two previous posters about creating a names list and reporting spam.

    I am wondering about SPAM as well… there are a couple posts that are about 100 different links. Annoying
