((The rule states that you can not start with the word YOU, not that the word you can not be used.  However it is eliminated by the 'must be no less then two lines.   Miru is eliminated and the rule does not count.  That leaves Geny and Woock.))

((Geny and Mytical are forfeit. Rarensu and Miru are eliminated. Asheera did not post for a week between August 5 and August 13. Mvass hasn't posted since August 4. Everyone else on HC (including Mamgaeater) lost the game on August 10th for not having posted during the first week of the round. Therefore, Lord Woock is all alone and wins by default.))

((@Mytical, someone should announce after the 7th day of the next round that the participants of that round are now locked))

((@Mytical QUESTION
"If a player does not post at least 1 time a week, they are removed from the current game, so we are not waiting around for them to post a rule or to 'forfeit'."

The first half-sentence implies that posting a comment counts for staying in the game, but the second half-sentence implies that it doesn't. Which?))

((New core rules to be proposed:
Must post once every 2 days at least or lose (don't have to add a rule)
No letter banning
Once 4 people have lost or forfeited no new players can join
No person specific rules))

Ok So Woock Wins this round.  Give me a bit on the Core Rules.  Have to do some revamping.  New round will begin tomorrow night.

END OF ROUND TWO

Posting a comment does not count btw.  If they do not post a rule in 7 days they are autmatically eliminated from the Round.  This is to keep the game moving at a decent pace.

Edit 1 : Since I want as many participants as possible, no locking of any kind (beyond that if they don't post a rule in 7 days they are eliminated).  Of course I am moving that up to 4 days (not two) which should be plenty of time.

Edit 2: I agree on the person specific rule.  So putting that in Core Rules also.  As for letter banning..hmm Hows this.  Not sure about the no letter banning.  Will leave that to a vote.  Should a core rule be 'No banning of any letters'?

I'd be OK with a rule that forbids the banning of specific letters, but the regulation of text content is a huge alley of creativity and challenge that we are not yet done exploring. I would want any such rule to allow the circumstantial or variable banning of letters. This gives us plenty of room to explore, but it would still prevent un-fun rules such as "no R".

I'd also like to propose a change of format. All this hiding behind (()) is irritating. I think that we should post normally when speaking normally, and wrap our rules in tags instead. My proposed rules tag is boldification, b and /b.

Hey now, how's banning a single letter for a round any worse than regulating consonant-vowel ratios or the crazy palindrome rule?

EDIT: I'm going away right now, so I'll be back with a first rule either this evening or tomorrow afternoon. I hope you don't mind the delay. Meanwhile, you can settle this crazy crusade against letter banning.

My vote is not to have any core rule about letter banning.  However, people can feel free to add that as a NON-Core Rule.  As for the (()) issue, as long as people can tell the difference I don't really care how it is done.  The reason I use (()) is it is a common Text RPG element.

I honestly do not want to ban or limit too many rules, as the fun is to try to get around the rules (for me).  Remember as long as you follow the 'rules' you can 'undo' a rule.  If somebody bans a letter you like, without using that specific letter just write a rule that changes it.  After this next round I am going to do a 'no core rules' round.  Where ONLY the CoC matters for 'rules', and anything else goes.  Just to see where it leads us.

Round 2 is OVER, reset to basic rules.

A person-specific variant would be if he said "Thou Shalt, if thine name is Miru, praise everyone"
