Extending the community

Ultimate Wiktionary is there to be used. My definition for success is "when people find an application for the data that we did not think of". There is however nothing wrong with us coming up with new ways in which we can extend the potential use.

Particularly interesting to me are the changes that extend the community of users. We want the scientists; the translators but we could also have the puzzlers. For me this would be really cool if UW becomes a challenge to my mother, she likes her crosswords and her cryptograms. Puzzlers are interested in synonymy and definitions so by adding this one field in the
Expression table, the first step is taken to charm yet another group of people into the Ultimate Wiktionary...

Thanks,
