It was four years ago when a bored college student decided to practice development by making a dictionary website. That college student as me, and that website eventually became the one you’re looking at right now.
Thuum.org has grown and changed a lot over the years. The dictionary and lessons are completely different, forums have come and gone, and a whole saga could be written about the trials and tribulations of the community wall. Through it all, one thing hasn’t changed — the strength and creativity of the community. Whether you’re an ancient member from those days of yore or only just recently joined, I want to thank each and every one of you for making this site what it is today. Thank you for bringing your passion into the hobby. Thank you for continuously helping me and each other. Thank you for being patient and understanding when things have broken, or when tough choices were needed to be made. I wouldn’t be sitting here four years later if it wasn’t for all of you. If you could walk in my shoes (and some of you quite recently have), you’d hopefully see just how important you all are for driving me to make awesome things. Unslaad kogaan.
Each year I try to make something fun for everyone to enjoy. In the past we’ve had Forelnaar and the Labyrinth games. So on the subject of awesome things, here’s a new game I’m very excited to share with you all!
Sikaav (“rune-join”) is a crossword game where you combine runes on the board to earn points. You can play solo, or competitively or cooperatively with up to 4 players! Join a game right away, or grab some friends and start a custom game.
Sikaav is in open beta right now, so please direct any feedback or questions to the Sikaav forum, and help us improve it! We hope Sikaav will be an exciting and engaging way to learn with other members of the site. Head on over to the Sikaav hub and have fun!

Contest Entry Guidelines
Send your entry in an email to [email protected] with the subject line: Screenshot Contest – your name. All entries should contain the following:
- One or more screenshots as attachments
- A five-word caption in the dragon language with an English translation
- The name, pen name, username, or blog url you would like to be listed as the author of your entry
Your entry can be of any subject, whether it's a landscape, portrait, action scene, glitch, or funny moment. Your screenshot can also feature any mods you'd like so long as they aren't explicit (the Schlongs of Skyrim photobook will have to wait for another day). If your favorite Skyrim moment of the last 5 years is watching Thomas the Tank Engine set fire to helpless villagers, by all means share his blazing glory.
Please only send original screenshots. Entries should be screenshots that are captured in-game. Entries that are photos of TV screens or monitors will be disqualified unless the entry is done this way for artistic reasons. If so, please clarify in your submission.
Feel free to edit or enhance your entry so long as it is still recognizable as a screenshot. Your entry can include multiple screenshots if they will fit on a single page. You can choose to caption individual screenshots or provide one caption for all of them. If you would like your screenshots collaged in a particular way, please send all of your screenshots together as a single image. Please only send screenshots you want included in a single entry.
Captions must use the vocabulary found in the main dictionary. Entries that make use of vocabulary found in the Legacy Dictionary will not qualify for the contest. You are encouraged to make compound words and use the vocabulary as creatively as you see fit. Captions must feature 5 words. Your caption can but doesn't need to be a complete sentence. Simply pick which dragon words you think best embody your screenshot.
This contest will be open for entries until Monday, November 28th. Amativ voth ahkrin!
