I bookmarked a site years ago that was all about people listing their favorite words - sort of like "delicious" but for word nerds. Does anyone have a clue what this is? thanks

It was wordie.org. Do they still have the word list format somewhere on the site, or has it totally changed?

I haven't been active on Wordie in a while but I'm lurking around there more now that the site's been merged with Wordnik. All the old content has been retained in the new format, including lists. Here's an example (self-link) of an old list I made before the merge.

Yep, they still have the lists. My list is awesome because you'll note that I am the only person yet to have listed schwarzgerät. And I haven't even read the whole damn thing.
