Hey so I talked to Doodat a bit about the rule and we decided that it got too convoluted and unclear so I'm just going to stop. Really sorry for all the confusion and complication.
The rule was
- Any sentence (one or more words/groupings of characters) with an odd number of words is worth 0
-Any sentence with an even number of words is 1
- Not a sentence (ie words without punctuation) is 2
It got really confusing with stuff like ".hi .hi" which I decided to score as
". | hi . |hi" 2+0+2=4
There were a lot of ways to score that one and I kinda just took my best guess. Sorry guys!
