    Default Dozenal Counting

    Is typing numbers using the base-12 system (as opposed to the base-10 system) for counting against board rules? The nearest I can see is the rule against typing in a foreign language.

    I'd sooner ask why you're doing it, than if it's against the rules or not. Of course if it serves some mathematical purpose, it's fine. But beyond that, the only time I've used dozenal is keeping track of EVs if pokémon. (252 is divisible by 12, and Super Training works in 1s, 3s, 6s, and 12s)

    You could just subscript them, like so: 129512 and 6B3412. It is clear, and very easy to do (either use the button provided, or copy and paste [SUB ]12[/SUB] (without the space).

    As far as I can tell, the rules against foreign language use is so that the mods can be sure to comprehend the content of a post. Seeing how numbers can only express quantity and that quantity could hardly be used to express forbidden topics I believe it should be ok.
    However, I'd be really curious on the reasons for it to be otherwise.

    Sheriff: Nothing about that seems inherently inappropriate, but don't do it unless you have a reason to, and don't do it in anyway that otherwise violates the Forum Rules (such as to flame, troll, spam, etc.).
