With the current version of Wordle, we can’t add words — we can only remove and reorder the words John Wardle had programmed. We remove words if they’re too obscure or have a derogatory secondary meaning.I’m the New York Times Editor Who Edits Wordle. I Love My Job.
I don’t know why I find it funny that the New York Times can’t add any words to Wordle the way it is currently configured, but I do.
The editor sounds like a very nice person though, and I’m a very happy, if not good, Wordle player.
