FAQs

Diktionary.com offers everyone a new and fun way to connect with others – just choose a word (or make one up) that’s totally ‘you’ and add all the contact and social media account details you might wish to share with others under it on our platform. Then all you need to say to a new friend, old friend or someone you wish to be more than friends with is, “Look me up in the Diktionary, I’m [insert word here]”, and you’re connected!

Diktionary.com is for anyone who loves to connect with new people but can never remember all their numbers and usernames/social handles, or all too quickly forget those of others they meet and miss out on a lifetime of possibilities their connection could’ve created. It’s for those who are looking for an easier way to share their  Insta images, their YouTube creations and Twitter rants. It’s for everyone who’d just love to say to people, “ Want to know more about me? Just look me up in the Diktionary...I’m Catlady”. 

It’s a fun new way to share and make connections, old and new.

Whatever links you want. You decide which social media and contact details to add to Diktionary.com, and you decide which can be seen by simply toggling the visibility option of your link to On or Off.

You can share as much or as little as you like. You’re in control.

It couldn’t be easier:

1. Just pop to our Home page and search for your chosen word;  real or made-up. 
2. If it’s available, simply register a free Diktionary.com account and claim your word, so nobody else can use it…ever. 
3. If it’s not available, find a new word that you feel defines you and register that one before someone else grabs it.
4. Then, just sign into your new account and upload your profile image, contact and social media links.

Remember to check your junk/spam folder if you don’t receive your activation email to your inbox.

Nope. Never. 

There are approximately 170,000 words in the English language, but who says you have to use English? Your word can be in French, German, Klingon or any other ‘made-up’ language. You can even combine words into a single one like ‘Supercool’ or ‘Fairyblue’, or just create your own. 

With Diktionary.com you have an infinite number of variations to choose from. 

Set your imagination free! 

Any word at all, from any language, real or made-up, or any combination of words, so long as it has not already been registered. Because once it’s gone, it’s gone. Early members can choose the obvious ones, the cool ones, the really offensive (within acceptable guidelines of course) ones, but with limitless possibilities there will always be a word that defines you waiting to be chosen at Diktionary.com.

No. We’re sorry. We love your enthusiasm, but each user can only register a single word. 

One word. One person. One Diktionary.com.

Yes. You’re in charge, but remember two very important things:

1. You’ll need to let everyone you’ve already given your old word to know, because right now we do not have a ‘redirect’ function, so choose your word carefully.
2. Once you change your word, your old one becomes available for others to register. If you change your mind again we cannot guarantee that it will still be available should you decide to go back to it. Again, it’s much better if you choose your word and stick to it.

To request to change your word, email support@diktionary.com

We recognise that all new platforms, especially ones as innovative and awesome as ours (proud smile) will have teething problems. And that’s where you come in. If you notice any issues or just need our help with something Diktionary.com related, just email us at: support@diktionary.com or use our Report link on our pages.

Yep. 100%. 

In return for paying, well, zilch, we’d really appreciate it if you helped to spread the word about Diktionary.com by telling everyone about us. 

Search for fun words that you think might suit friends and family, and let them know if they’re available. Share your word through social media, because the more you use it and the more people know your word is you, the easier it will be for them to stay in touch or reconnect with you.

When you’re out, have fun connecting with new people by saying, ‘Look me up in the Diktionary, I’m....’.

This is where it gets interesting. Short answer is no, long answer is yes…eventually. 

Once the site achieves the massive following we believe it will – and every single one of you can play your part by sharing and shouting about Diktionary.com – then we plan to create a facility for word trading.

And, just like domain names, if you’ve registered a great word that everybody wants, it could be worth whatever someone is prepared to pay for it. Oh, and we have a LOT more ideas down the line to benefit members...!
 
So, what are you waiting for? Register your word now before someone else nabs it!
