My life is just an infinite loop of doing homework.
It only contains school, TBGs, watching YouTube, Minecraft (slowly disappearing) and my very little knowledge about coding.

Contractions aren't required, you didn't need them for that text anyway, so you don't need that literal

A New Way to Learn

Text Based Games (TBGs) are the next big development in online learning. How do TBGs work? A number of players must read the rules of the particular game being played, and then join in by adding a post to the game.

How are TBGs educational? Text Based Games can increase numeracy, literacy and science skills, as most games require players to count up or down in different ways, or add large numbers together to manually calculate their score.

A subgenre of TBGs are Role Playing Games also known as RPGs. These games require a player to immerse themself in an imaginary world of players and explore their environment. Many RPGs also require a player to craft their own story, and follow the rules of the world. Unlike traditional graphic based RPGs, however, Text Based RPGS are played by adding posts to the game topic. This dramatically improves the players ability to write narrative.

Are you worried about child safety on the TBGs? You will by glad to know that we have a dedicated team of moderators working 24/7, roaming the forums and deleting all spam, inappropriate posts, and also helping new players to learn the ropes. We are also protected by cutting edge technologies which make in nearly impossible for spammers to break in, or for players to break rules.

BBSC (Braille Based Smiley Code)

Letters:
smile smile to smile tongue -> a to j
neutral smile to neutral tongue -> k to t
neutral roll -> st
neutral cool -> ar
sad smile to sad big_smile -> u to z (except w, because braille)
sad lol -> and
sad hmm -> for
sad mad -> of
sad wink -> the
sad tongue -> with
sad roll -> ing
sad cool -> ble
yikes smile to yikes big_smile - ch, gh, sh, th, wh
yikes lol -> ed
yikes hmm -> er
yikes mad -> ou
yikes wink -> ow
yikes tongue -> w
big_smile big_smile -> en

Punctuation:
big_smile smile -> ,
big_smile neutral -> ;
big_smile sad -> :
big_smile yikes -> .
big_smile lol -> !
big_smile hmm -> ( )
big_smile mad -> ?
big_smile wink -> '
big_smile tongue -> "

Formatting:
lol smile -> Start literal (no contractions apply inside literal)
lol neutral -> One-word literal
lol sad -> End literal
lol yikes -> Capital (2 capitals in a row is caps lock)

Numbers:
hmm smile to hmm cool -> Base 12 digits (not bijective base 12, normal base 12)

Other Smiley Codes:
tongue smile - ESC
tongue hmm - BBSC (this)

Contractions:

Multichar letters will be uppercase
a - a
b - but
c - can
d - do
e - every
f - from
g - go/goes/went/gone
h - have/has/had
i - I
j - just
k - know
l - like
m - more
n - no/not
o - or
p - person/people
q - quite
r - rather
s - so
t - that
u - under
v - very
x - it
y - you
z - as
THE - then
CH - child
SH - shall
TH - this
WH - which
OU - out
w - will
ST - still

ab - about
abv - above
af - after
afn - afternoon

sd - said
SHd - should
td - today
tm - tomorrow
tn - tonight
THEmvs - themselves
wd - would
xs - its
xf - itself
yr - your
yrf - yourself
yrvs - yourselves

Note: These are not letters. You can't put them in the middle of words. They must stand alone.

Other:
cool smile -> Space
cool neutral -> ASCII char (see How to make other chars)

How to make other chars:
The main way to make other chars is using cool neutral. Here's an example. Let's say I want to use _. First, you have to get the octal escape of your chosen character. So for _, the octal escape is 137. Then, you follow it with 3 other smileys depending on its escape (:) to mad indicate 0 to 7). For 137, the three smileys are neutral yikes mad. After that, just precede it with cool neutral. The full code for _ is cool neutral neutral yikes mad.

You can also convert to ESC, which can compress really well, but requires the guidance of a computer to take full advantage of its compression.

Re: If this gets a Post ID of 8192, we advance!

A word search, word find, word seek, word sleuth or mystery word puzzle is a word game that consists of the letters of words placed in a grid, which usually has a rectangular or square shape. The objective of this puzzle is to find and mark all the words hidden inside the box. The words may be placed horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. Often a list of the hidden words is provided, but more challenging puzzles may not provide a list. Many word search puzzles have a theme to which all the hidden words are related such as food, animals, or colors. The puzzles have, like crosswords and arrowords, become very popular. Also in common with these latter puzzles, have had complete books and mobile applications devoted to them.

Word searches are commonplace in newspapers and magazines.

Gilbert do you have empty spots in ESC? I want to make it possible to embed ESC in BBSC (which I'll also call hmm code)

Sorry for the late reply... tongue
There is still 3 leading smileys left ( mad wink tongue ). Not enough to put it "directly", but I have a plan.
I could make ESC support multiple smiley formats. This way, backwards compatibility with other character sets can be achieved. For example, I can choose the leading smiley tongue as the character set marker. and it can be used like this:

tongue hmm lol yikes yikes yikes smile wink smile wink smile smile neutral tongue smile big_smile neutral roll big_smile yikes

The tongue hmm is the charset marker, indicating that the next smileys would be encoded in the hmm charset, in this case BBSC.

In BBSC (or at least right now), the leading smiley tongue doesn't do anything.

I'll also let BBSC encode ESC through tongue smile. I like ESC for its compression, but I want BBSC to be human-usable.

Also gilbert you're not out of the Monopoly game yet.
You still have to pay PkmnQ the $2 due.
And by doing so you can trade or mortgage, which definitely will give you more cash.
