That looks like two date intervals to me.

So perhaps this should count as two guesses.

I'm not sure what "worst case" in the Rule 2 is supposed to mean.

Perhaps you didn't understand that my response was not to you. Rather it was a response to S485122. It was to clarify that a number need not be guessed.

You on the other hand did not fully understand the rules (as posted in the first post). You failed to give a singular date. Others told you that ranges were specific forbidden. Even if I weren't the one to start this game, I would read the all of the comments.

You greatly underestimate me. I understood everything perfectly from the very beginning and then.
I just have my own style.

And yes, I always read everything very carefully. Including between the lines :)

So you understood the rules perfectly, and decided "your own style" was to not follow them?

A date range doesn't follow the rules. You gave a date range, and then claim things like "I read everything" and "I am completely within the rules of the game" and "I understand everything."

Those 3 claims are inconsistent. You fail, and you highlight your failure via repeated claims that you know what you are doing and did it on purpose. So, you're not only a troll, but a willful one- that's the kind of behavior that leads folks to ban you from guesses.

Please read the rules CAREFULLY and tell me where and what did I break?

My personal qualities are not the subject of this thread. If you want to talk about me, then pls create a special thread and name it GreenSkull.

I think the worst thing is facelessness.
Uniqueness and dissimilarity from everyone else is the main value of any individuality.
Stand out or die is the main evolutionary principle. I think this is generally normal and good :)

You have been shown multiple times where you went against the rules. But again, a bit clearer. You wrote:
Quote:
If I need to give a date, then I will indicate the interval - February 10, 2022 Β±2.5 months.
I will limit myself only to the forecast of this interval, can I?
Let's dissect that.
  • "If I need to give a date": In the case the rules require a specific date
  • "then I will indicate the interval - February 10, 2022 Β±2.5 months": I will ignore the rule that requires a specific date and instead give a range (February 10, 2022 Β±2.5 months)
  • "I will limit myself only to the forecast of this interval": I will not make another forecast, especially not a specific date, because I already gave a range of days
  • "can I?": but lets make sure and ask whether this is okay
That gives: In the case the rules require a specific date, I will ignore the rule that requires a specific date and instead give a range (February 10, 2022 Β±2.5 months). I will not make another forecast, especially not a specific date, because I already gave a range of days, but lets make sure and ask whether this is okay.
It is not! The rules say "No ranges"!

Only after that you said that February 10, 2022 would be your single date guess.

Irrespective of the and/or option, Catch 22 Rule #2 ends in "Failure to guess a prime number will count against you and impose a wait as in rule 6."
This imposes a 60-day wait for guessing only a specific date, right?
