Zendo: guess my rule.
Resolved
Jun 15
M$176 bet
I have a rule (or set of rules) that allows me to label words as correct or incorrect. Post a word, and I will comment if it is correct or incorrect. Post a rule and I will provide a counterexample, or select your rule as the winner of the market if I cannot provide a counterexample.

@Angela If this market dies with no one guessing the rule, I'll select all posted rules as correct, rather than tie up the money.

@Angela Since this is a starter game, there's no weird rules about when words are posted, what percent they are at, etc. It's just about the words themselves.

Do rules have to do with “intrinsic properties of the word?” or would it also be potentially possible for “website dynamics” (e.g. something to do with previous answers) to play a role?

@Angela In this game the rules deal with “intrinsic properties of the word”, but that is not an intrinsic property of Zendo. In this case I have a rule with two components, with an optional warrant/clarification that does not need to be supplied to count as a correct rule, but might come into play.
0
Duncan
I suppose I can clarify without harm, the warrant is that it needs to be an English word -- mostly so I don't have to deal with alternate alphabets and computer-generate nonsense.

Do I need to post a word as an answer, or just as a comment?
0
Duncan
@JoyVoid An answer. People have been selling their answers once I comment, which I will allow.
