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?

Do we only get one guess each round? Cool to see this back tho

correct. The rules from his topic apply here. One guess. Also, quoted content is not evaluated when checking if it follows the rule.

that is a nice bunny.

You guess by guessing, I guess. The more specific and clear you make your guess, the easier it is for me to say "hey this person is right."

also, RULEBREAKING

more info: the rules aren't cumulative. Each round is a new rule; the old one does not apply. Also, the first post in this topic may or may not follow the rule. I didn't consider it.

Also, in a very much hypothetical scenario in which I come up with the correct answer right after my last post, are doubleposts allowed for guessing?

Yes. If you reveal a rule by your post, it seems fair to be able to double post to claim credit.

Re: The Secret Rule (2)

evals will be slow tomorrow as I will be lacking wifi.

but you guys are doing some good things.

it's both enjoyable to me and helpful to you to vocalize your rationalizations and make it clear where, if you are stuck, hints could be given periodically. Otherwise, I could just butcher things.

or maybe the person who created the clue gets that task. Either way, like I said, y'all are getting somewhere.

Might be something involving scrabble scores.

Hello! just wanted to say no to scrabble. A rule may be difficult but not so complex. ( and I won't give a lot of assistance next rounds, I'm just wanting to get stuff rolling a little )

You cannot take credit for your findings as you already made an errant guess. I imagine you could still say it and let someone else "guess."

Indeed, slabdrill is correct, yet it's limited by my ability to recognize falsified quotes. So for reliability's sake, I recommend avoiding fake quotes.

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.

reminder: I won't allow this on anything variable, like time, or "From", or "Posts".

I'll probably give a clue tomorrow if anak doesn't find the time to.

"technically" names are an entirely different class of "technically variable" -- you still retain a "Formerly X" reminder and honestly if I noticed someone switching, I'd point it out in game, which would probably make the rule more obvious.

anyhow, Devlin is correct. woo

In my post, it's possibly better that rounds go quickly so people don't get weary.
