Thon is a gender neutral pronoun.
Ah, now I understand. It's one of those stupid words made up by Newspeak-obsessed feminists. (No offense to the sane feminists. I know you're out there somewhere.) How does モモンガ expect us to know that? There must be a billion of the things.
1) The English gender-neutral pronouns are "he" and "they". Conlangs go here: http://www.unilang.org/viewforum.php?f=85
2) Ignoring (1) and the excusable fact that it's slightly incorrect English, it's still a highly ambiguous sentence.
A person asks a question about languages, and writes the correct answer in spoilers, the next one asks a new question if he was correct.
3) This is a poorly designed game. It stops the moment that no-one -- at least no-one playing -- knows the answer. This page has had dozens of views and no-one played on.
モモンガ, I suggest that you change the rules to something that's more likely to be played. Here's how I would personally do it:
0) The game starts with a language-related question. Everyone begins with 0 points.
Every time that you post after that, do the following:
1) Give yourself 1 point and put your current score in your post.
2) If the poster immediately before you answered his question incorrectly, you can give the correct answer to take 2 of his points. ("I don't know" counts for this purpose.)
3) If the poster immediately before you made a grammatical or other language mistake, or gave his score incorrectly, you gain 1 point per mistake for pointing it out.
4) You must attempt to answer the question in the post immediately prior to yours.
5) You must ask a new question.
6) You lose 5 points if you get ninja'd.
7) If there has been no reply for more than 72 hours, the question is too difficult and you can take 2 points from whomever asked it.
8) If the answer to your most recent question is wrong and no-one has pointed it out yet, you gain 1 point for announcing this. ("I don't know" does not
count for this purpose.)
9) You obviously can't self-reply.
10) To paraphrase Douglas Adams:
The winner shall be the first player that wins.
Your thoughts? I know, I prefer games with points.
