Also I gather that the upper left on the innermost ring is indicated as '8', but since the two circles inside the "8" do not intersect the innermost ring, couldn't that digit also be 2 circles outside the ring, aka 9, or whatever 3 circles on the outside of a ring is?
Meh, I'm trying. When your transitioning from circles, do you veer off kind of like a spiral? Or do you go to the next ring and start at the very bottom. I've been spiraling, because in one of your comments it says that the number ends in an 8 (Atless you changed yours phone number of course) and it doesn't quite line up the other way. I'm also confused on the different way to translate the numbers. I know it HAS to go 1-917-55, and then that can either be a 7 or a three based on weather or not the circles interpect the middle from that perspective, and then I know the number after would be a 9, then a 7, then a 5, and then of course you rule out everything because it's an 8. Which also makes it more confusing, because I looked at the newer numbers, and that one ended in a 9, so it's confusing trying to translate them both into something. I don't have a phone either so I'm stuck using iMessage on iPod.
First off, I love what you've done here. Absolutely love this and the whole Circular Gallifreyan writing system too. However, I really dislike the number system in the official guide. Two big reasons, the first and foremost of which being that I can't read it. I very often miss lines or circles inside the many rings or get lost with regard to which ring I was in. I find it extremely visually confusing. The other reason being that it just does not fit the style of the rest of the writing system. This however, very clearly matches the original appearance of the system. Now if I came off as rude, I appologise, but I felt like you needed to hear this. Anyway, thanks for reading, and again, love what you're doing.
Isn't the second last digit impossible? It's a circle terminating on the outside of the ring, with two inner circles, representing a "10", given that no-co-centrics would be eight and one-co-centric circle would be 9. I suspect it to be eight. Is it supposed to be since the two other inner circles are exhausted (used up) by the mid and outer ring?
The two things I love the most about this are 1. That you would be getting multiple texts of "jelly babies" from random strangers... at random times of day. 2. Anyone who was contacted by a wrong answer also gets these same "jelly babies" texts, so I hope they're fans of the Doctor, or that would get annoying fast.
Oh... I completely missunderstood what you ment. I thought that "Jelly Babies" was ment to be a text to prove that you got the right number, like 1 = abc, 2= def, ect. I thought I was really far off because I started of with 91755 and that doesn't write as "jelly" at all, though the double fives could be LL.
