Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

The Secret Rule

Welcome to The Secret Rule! In this thread, there is a rule that everybody must follow that only I know. Your goal is to discover the rule through observation and experimentation. Posts that break the rule will be marked by me as rule-breaking.

To guess what the rule is, be sure to make it clear that it is your guess and not just speculation. Be specific on what you think the rule is. You can only make 1 guess per post. You only have one guess per round, so make it count.

However, if you guess correctly, the round will be over and you'll be able to propose a new rule to me via PM. Make sure its in the realm of possibility for guessing, nothing too tricky.

Fake mod edits and double posts will be deleted. Double posts for guesses will not be deleted and will be counted as guesses.

Editing and deleting your posts is disabled in this thread. Be careful when you guess!

If you quote another post, the contents of that quote do not affect whether or not your post breaks the rule. Unless the rule specifies otherwise, of course. This only applies to actual quotes; putting stuff inside a quote tag doesn't exempt it from the rule.

--

Rule suggestion guidelines:
1. No rules that require you to determine a specific value Ex: No posts with more than 6 words
2. No rules that are dependent on changing variables Ex: No posts from users with a set location
3. No rules that are too obscure Ex: The post #'s digits must add up to a multiple of 3
4. No subjective rules; they must be cut and dry Ex: Posts can't be happy in tone

Subjectivity can be extended to things that could be difficult for me and others to determine in certain contexts. Make sure that in all cases the rule is obviously broken or not broken with no grey area.

--

INCORRECT - Not the rule
INVALID - This person already guessed so their guess doesn't count.

Re: The Secret Rule

1. Did you forget to mark my post or does it follow the rule?
2. How long are the rounds?
3. This is not a guess, just asking for clarification.

EDIT: For further clarification I think it'd be better to mod-edit to give more clarification

Re: The Secret Rule

@Zoey: Nope, that ain't it.

@Onjit:
1. I'm only going to mark posts that break the rule. If I don't mark it, it's okay. I don't really feel like marking absolutely every post, to be honest, so take recent posts with a grain of salt as I might not have checked them yet.
2. Rounds will last until somebody finds out the rule or a week passes without a post.

also I'll be marking my own posts too if they break the rule

Neither of those are the rule.

Also, different, your post is against the rule but I can't mark it //forums.everybodyedits.com/img/smilies/sad

Good one, but it's not against the rules.

EDIT: Also, from now on, I'm just going to edit in "INVALID GUESS" to guesses because I don't want to interfere too much with the thread and me posting all the time clutters things up.

Re: The Secret Rule

If a post has numbers in it then all the numbers in the post mustn't add up to 3 or anything divisible by 3.

INVALID GUESS
