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?

There seems to be a pattern of longer posts naturally breaking the rule more. So I think we should be looking at why this post in particular breaks the rule:

thanksL0L wrote:

rage quitting

RULEBREAKING

Eg. compare this post to other short posts and question what the difference is.

ive got an idea here
im making an assumption that the rule depends completely upon post content, not post data (time, post #, etc)
i suggest that we take this post of some man that breaks the rule:

some man wrote:

Might be something involving scrabble scores.

RULEBREAKING

and put each word of it in a separate post
this could help us pinpoint the thing that triggers the rule
like so:

a person wrote:

Might

another person wrote:

be

hello wrote:

something

and so on...
obviously i wont do it alone cause i'd be spamming the thread with double/triple/quadruple posts, but i will try to, help is much appreciated

P.S: we could try doing the same to thanksl0l's post "rage quitting"
