>>> Here it is <<<

(Keep in mind there will be potentially offensive words in there)

Currently, every possible letter pair other than ones starting with Y or Z (I don't use those, but it's a WIP) has at least one word. Most of them have all of: (Person), (action or adjective), (object) and many of them have several options.

I'd love for people to add their own words. But public editing is too risky, so you'll have to comment your word on the cell.

I hope this is helpful! Let me know if you have any questions.

This is a great idea. I think there should be a huge database of letter pairs, something like algdb.net but for letter pairs.
It would be super helpful for a lot of people, I know that I and many others have used Chris Hardwick's list extensively.
I agree that public editing is too risky, but commenting is impractical, maybe there's some other way to do this?

I agree that a database like algdb would be perfect. But I lack the web development skills.

Commenting will have to do, until I or someone else comes up with a better idea.
I'll add words and remove comments as they come.

Nice! this is super awesome because i've just starting finishing execution optimization and now i'm working on memo :)

One smallish problem tho is that some images can fit for many different letter pairs (like rubiks cube can be RB, RC, CB, or RU)
I guess it doesn't really matter tho

Awesome!! I'll add some of my words :D
Thanks for the additions so far :)
Request access and I'll grant it.
Outraged that (H)Yuge wasn't included for HY.
Amended.

That's a bit of a problem, inherent to the whole idea of letter pairs I guess.
it just means you'll have to decide which words you want to use for which pair.

If anyone wants access to edit, request it on the sheet. I'll add people I know and/or trust.

aite. Do you not usually not use locations when you're doing bigBLD/multi?
Nah. It seems a bit strange to me to put locations into locations if you use the journey method.

Although this got me thinking about an absurd way to condense edges into 1 image.
Location, person, action, adverb, verb, object

I'll add my full letter pairs list.
I've also wanted to make an algdb.net but for comms, it would be easier than switching back and forth from different people's lists like I've been doing.

I can't work out how to request this through the app. Do I have to access it through a desktop?

I use QB. And AO is Aosu. And QJ is a pyraminx.
QJ is a cube for me.

I found a list on Anki that was full of Pokemon. They used flaming Pokemon for parity IIRC.
