Players who report on map keys they have used may be unwittingly describing a map that has been described for an equivalent key, i.e. a key of the same length and value. Even on this wiki it has happened at least once - with the same reporter of both descriptions!
Use of the subpagesEdit
Subpages of this page are for voluntary listing of keys according to values. See 2 for how to set them out. If you have examined a key that contains from 2 to 9 characters, you are invited to calculate its value then add it to the appropriate line on a subpage, checking whether any other key has already been listed in that line; compare the maps if one has.
Subpages are "named" according to the number of characters in the key length:
Beyond that point, calculation becomes more and more tedious and the likelihood of matching keys is steadily reducing. We can add more if it ever seems worthwhile.
