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?

Re: The Secret Rule (2)

I don't think it had anything to do with grammar or syllables.

Re: The Secret Rule (2)

I was thinking that is was something to do with post length (hence why I looked at syllables).

But then you get long posts like this:

And short one's like this:

Re: The Secret Rule (2)

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:

rage quitting

RULEBREAKING

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

Re: The Secret Rule (2)

There's several posts exactly the same but I don't think one has broken a rule whereas the other hasn't though?



That said, this is a lead:

Nobody actually said this but apparently quotes don't count so maybe this is how we talk without testing what we are saying? wrote:

I think we should all just keep posting "Hello!" until we have enough data to make the distinction

Re: The Secret Rule (2)

Guess: is the rule that you can't use the first letter of your name in your post?

Re: The Secret Rule (2)

I already checked that. I also checked if it counted space as a character.

If it is that, then obviously I miscounted a few posts.

I can't tell if hummerz is genuinely trying to help us or is leading us astray.

Re: The Secret Rule (2)

I feel like it’s something conditional to previous posts.
