    Well, just looking over the known letters I noticed that F, L, M, N and S all have the same basic appearance. And they all start with an 'eh' sound when you pronounce them individually. P and T should be related, by that logic, but K's got a similar structure too...

    I'm going to guess that B and D are variations on G. J is K with the lowest dot omitted. That leaves C, H, Q, V, X, Y and Z, but I've got no idea on those.

    I like the way you think. I've made some guesses (starred) with all of this in mind. Hard starting sounds are similar and soft starting sounds are similar. B and D both hard G and V both soft.

    Not bad, thurule. I like how you extrapolated the numbers!

    It's a shame that logic doesn't appear to apply to the letters, by rights V should be W without the lowest dot, but that's N. I don't know what R would be the equivalent of.

    Paging @Kiko (and also @PA Jamie in case that isn't the right Kiko). How close are the guesses? I need to know because my brain is broken.

    Weird. I have no idea what the pattern is then, C and D are mirrors of each other, (I would have made that D and G, myself) so maybe the same will hold true for J and K. V and Z as variations on T?

  • AyefkayAyefkay Queensland, AustraliaRegistered User regular
    Yeh, i still cant figure the pattern, but atleast we can pretty much confirm the pin says 'regal swangee'

    I think that's just regular Clickwise, not Clocktalk. That first section would be 4 vowels, a consonant/number/symbol, a vowel, consonant/number/symbol, vowel. The last section would be 5 vowels, consonant/number/symbol, 7 vowels, the same consonant/number/symbol twice.

    @PedroAsani I'll have to bug Kikerz about it this week. I'm not fluent in Clocktalk ;)

    Nice, thanks! Looks like he borrowed my image to do it, but that's ok. ;) Here's an updated one. Let me know if any more turns up!

    FWIW, I think yours looked a lot nicer than mine from a design aspect. Mine's just thrown together blocks. :)

  • AyefkayAyefkay Queensland, AustraliaRegistered User regular
    haha, i just put the grey background to not make my eyes hurt as much! i think our combined efforts did a solid attempt at figuring out what the pin says. Safe to say it definitely says "REGAL SWANGEE"

    Sadly, i dont feel any closer to deciphering the clickwise pattern, just a bunch of dots and lines to me :P

    Ohhhhhhhh... the host you used for your image @Ayefkay is apparently blocked by my work, so I never saw it (just checked on my phone and it showed up fine there).

    Yeah totally. Problem with clickwise is that if it's /actually/ another language it'll be a lot tougher. I'm not going there. :)

    Sigs can only be 80 pixels high REKT'EM!

    Nice design though. Reported to zerzhul.


    Gonna make mine with random clocktalk BECAUSE WHO WOULD BOTHER TO CHECK!?

    I love the clocktalk in the signatures, but since ffmh was /so nice/ as to bring it up, 80px high is the limit for sigs in total, not just the images.

    @callmegar yours is currently 122px high and @Ayefkay yours is 134px

    Easiest way to check is to right click on it in a modern browser and "inspect element" Select the <div class="Signature UserSignature"> and that should tell you how tall it is.

    And since you brought it up @fishfishmonkeyhat yours is 93px but I didn't notice till I looked ;) It's not usually a big deal unless it's very obviously too big or obstructive, but since attention was brought, I figured I'd clear up the regs. An example of text plus images making 80px tall is mine, which is precisely 80px, and a good example of an image that is the full allowable size with no text is the following:
    cFhq9lX.jpg

    <3

    someone should make a clocktalk sig that I can start using to replace huge sigs that says "this is a regulation signature" and is precisely 500x80 like that geth image ;)

    In case you haven't backed it yet and don't get the updates.

    You can now add the hoodie to any pledge level, just add an extra $70 ($75 non-usa) on to your pledge and they'll ask in a survey at the end if you wanted a hoodie for the extra pledge.

    Full details on the KS page.

    I think I'm disappointed. After pledging for the pin level - we get a new pin, rather than a rare existing one (such as DLC). With over 1300 of them being made - it's hardly rare. So I'm questioning whether I should stick with it - or move along. The Camp Weedonwantcha KS also offered a pin, and they had approximately 500 pledge for that one (and at a much lower buy-in), making that both rarer and more affordable.

    I'm not saying that I don't want the KS to succeed - I do. But with the falling Australian dollar, the higher pin print-run, and the higher initial buy-in, paying more for a less rare pin isn't as appealing. Obviously the solution isn't to drop the price of that tier, but perhaps add more to it. Just as a thought - a double secret box would be cost effective and probably help them get over the line.

    I would argue that the pin would be rarer for the simple fact that it's more expensive. If you drop $150 on a pin, are you going to be casually giving it away? I would imagine the majority of these pins are going into a collection and not into circulation, unlike the standard pin.

    Not only that, but they will still be somewhat more rare than the usual "limited pin" drop of ~2000.

    In the end though, you're getting a cool reward for supporting a cool thing. I wouldn't think of the pin in monetary value, but as a thanks gift for helping make a project happen. :)

  • thurulethurule Registered User regular

    That's pretty awesome. Should we break his bubble and tell him it's clocktalk and not clickwise? ;)
