Loki, I admire your attempt. However, the goal of this forum is for you to deduce the rules I have devised. Would you please try again?

Can other people make up rules too? I'm not asking for myself, but on behalf of a friend.

Actually, I'm just asking for myself.

The goal is for someone (other than you and me) to successfully guess the three rules. They should send them to me in a private message, and the first person to do so correctly may get to determine the rules for the next game, I'm not sure yet. Does that make it more clear?

Will you let me know if this helps?

The three rules in question govern the form of your posts here. For instance, the posts by Ben and I all observe the three rules.

In my last post, I quoted the bit where Lewis said my posts here all follow the rules, and pointed out that in fact, that's not the case. I did so in a way that violated the rules. The question is: is that the only reason not all of my posts here follow the rules?

One of the rules is that every post must contain two statements and one question. Is this correct? Appearantly, they can be in any order.

I'd like to point out that posts containing the phrase "post deleted for rule non-conformance" and nothing else apparently is okay by the rules. In case Ravenswood should be right, I'm going to add a question. Why, God, why?

the posts you mention are not ok by themselves. When they are posted, they too get deleted (and that deletion is noted). Get it?

So when I posted "post deleted for rule non-conformance", it was deleted and replaced by an exact copy of itself? OK, the three rules are: Every post must contain three sentences, the three sentences must consist of two statements and one question, and don't feed them after midnight. And each post must be an attempt to get one step closer to figuring out the rules.

I read your answer, and I find it ambivalent. This on account of dealing only with the original posts, and not their replacements. The replacements notifying us of the deletion are thus bit considered as posts which have to be in conformance with the rules?

Also, your other threads on this part of the message board seem to not be in conformance with the three rules, and that the description of "Constrained Chat" has been changed without notification. Is this correct? If so, I find this to be rude.

Take that!

So where Loki's and my prize?

RAVENSWOOD'S prize. I didn't figure anything out, I was just being annoying and procrastinating, wasn't even helpful. Right?

I decided to give up on this thread. It was too much effort and not enough fun.

Ravenswood, what prize would you like?

Guys, what were the three rules? I can only figure out one of the rules. I hope another one is that you have to mention the rules.

One of them is three sentences. I think they forgot the rules. Did you forget the rules, Ben?

One of the rules was that posts must have at least one question. Another was that a particular letter was required, but I don't remember what it was. Lewis, do you know?

Okay, I've made up some new rules. This post is compliant to these rules.

What are the rules? I think chenjesu should tell us the rules if nobody solves it before he goes off to missionary.
