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 (2)

Bobithan ran this fun game here and I'd like to revive it if y'all would care to join me!

The rules are straightforward: each round has a rule. This rule applies to the each post a player makes, but you don't know what it is. You want to guess the rule to win. Upon correctly guessing, you get to determine the rule for the next game, provided it isn't too complicated.

You only get one guess each round. You can experiment with others through conversation to determine what the rule is. Please do not, however, simply post random content or consecutively. Excessive disregard for this request will get you dropped from the round.

Double posts will be deleted. Editing will be disabled.

(too long? too confusing? go read bobithan's rules, they're much more agreeable!) I opt to create a new thread a la Mafia because, well, it seems weird to take over his thread with such a host-involved game.

--
Tags I will be using:
INVALID - The guess in this post does not count (they already guessed/broke some rule)
INCORRECT - This guess is wrong.
RULEBREAKING - This post breaks the rule.
(I also will try to mark posts when I have checked the thread with a piece such as 'posts heretofore have been evaluated')
--
with that, shall we begin?

I know I'm meming, but at the same time I'm also seeing what would count as rule breaking for me, and it seems my posts haven't broken the rules.

Re: The Secret Rule (2)

I wonder if it has something to do with grammar, or rather something abstract.

Re: The Secret Rule (2)

I wonder if the rule has some amount of subjectivity to it (i.e If you can say the words in the post like this, then it follows the rule, even though you can say words in different ways)

Re: The Secret Rule (2)

Hmmmm.... maybe the rule is if the number of characters in the post is divisible by the max character limit, then it breaks the rule.


I don't know tbh it's a longshot and it's probably bs

ok "/shrek mait mait turned into shrek" breaks the rule and you said its one word but some posts dont contain any of those words...

He meant just typing a single word as your post breaks the rule.

This one is interesting and obviously can't contain words or phrases that aren't in Merriam Webster's dictionary

I think I know what you mean, which is distinct from what you said, but in case you mean explicitly what you said, not quite.

edit: well also, I brought up the dictionary repeatedly because it seems important to point out. But, I wasn't going to say it during the last round because that would make it obvious the rule depended on words.

Interesting... I hope I'm getting somewhere, if not for me to guess than for other people to guess.

Re: The Secret Rule (2)

So what you're saying is, Music Man, that in order for the post to even be considered for review under this rule, it has to have correct spelling?

Re: The Secret Rule (2)

Ah, so from what I'm understanding so far, the rule has nothing to do with phrases that aren't counted as words. I wonder what else there could be to gather from this.

Re: The Secret Rule (2)

I wonder if it has something to do with longer sentences, or perhaps compounded sentences... Maybe multiple sentences, or something to do with and/but/or/;/other transitory words or punctiations?
