This is not a CA rulebreaker. I will answer questions in italics about the rule on a limited basis. Since I know it will be asked, the content of your posts ARE relevant.

Begin!!

So one character gets an answer beginning with A, 2 characters get an answer beginning with D, 3 gets I, 4 gets P, 5 gets Y, 6 gets J, 8 gets L..
adipyj..
in between a-d: 2 letters
d-i: 4
i-p: 6
p-y: 8
y-j: 10
So it's a lovely little geometric progression? So something with 7 characters would get an answer starting with W?

So one character gets an answer beginning with A, 2 characters get an answer beginning with D, 3 gets I, 4 gets P, 5 gets Y, 6 gets J, 8 gets L..yes
adipyj..
yes
in between a-d: 2 letters
d-i: 4
i-p: 6
p-y: 8
y-j: 10 True, but this is a consequence of my rule and not my rule itself
So it's a lovely little geometric progression?yes, but my method is different than what you've laid out, albeit with the same result. So something with 7 characters would get an answer starting with W?indeed it would


I guess, in one sense, you have figured out the rule...you would at least be able to answer any question with an answer that is in accordance to the rule...but before I spoil, I wonder if you can figure out the actual method that I used that happened to result in a arithmetic progression that I had not thought about, even though in hindsight its quite obvious.

Did you square the number of characters, then used the letter that corresponded with the result?
ie. 1 square = 1--A
2 square = 4--D
3 square = 9--I
4 square = 16-P

That would explain the title!
