The Post Making Context is now lean and trim again, and hopefully the forum will be too!

Threads can creep a bit over 100 pages with no problem so in the event this thread bumps over that next time I can split things off the back end instead of the front?

peace to the unsung peace to the martyrs | i'm johnny rotten appleseed
clouds is shaky love | broke as hell but i got a bunch of ringtones
eyes blood red bruise aubergine | Sue took something now Sue doesn't sleep | saint average, day in the life of
staying warm in arctic blizzard | that's my battle 'til I get inanimate | woke up in the noon smelling doom and death | out the house, great outdoors
Feeling homesick no matter where I is | Gonna beg steal and borrow 'til we live like kings

Behold! As I post, not just one post appears, but two!

There's no reason for this | Or this | Death is inevitable | You can't challenge fate | The smallest change
I'm serious | It makes perfect sense | Easy as ABC! | I can't even explain it
I suck | I rule | I've got it made | Really, I'm serious | This bugs me | It's all lies | I want to believe

Well, usually what happens is we have no idea so we just post nonsense.

Then one of the pieces of nonsense passes a rule we have trouble passing and usually that's when it becomes a meme.

When we actually attempt to solve PMC rounds, usually what we do is look at posts that pass a particular rule and see if we can spot anything similar about them. If that doesn't work, we ask for hints.

Sometimes we just flat-out interrogate the host on Discord and get very heavy hints.

This post probably doesn't pass rule 4, I don't know, I haven't been paying that much attention this round.

Stats for your interest (also possible recalibration if I messed up):

You've passed rule 3 29 times so far. You've passed rule 4 11 times so far. You've passed rule 5 5 times so far.

Well, we haven't made much progress in either, so I guess it's fine.

Passes none of the rules

On the positive side: we solved one of the least-solved puzzles of the new set.
On the negative: we haven't solved any others.

Passes rule 2

Whoops, 7) weird dog wouldn't pass rule 3. Consider the excerpt "prune the main thread" instead

Passes both rules 1 and 2! Good work.

----------------------------

At this current state, Rules 2 and 5 are not simultaneously satisfiable. (Although I suspect rules 3, 4, and 5 are all very difficult to attain at the current point.)
