Maybe it's more simple than these examples make it appear Yes

Regardless we're clearly in the wrong track, although this is a one-size-fits-all way of getting to the rule so we'll get there eventually. Yes

Ok, does anyone have any ideas they're just trying to refine or something, because I have no idea.

I'm completely lost and will revert to treating letters as numbers once I get around confirming there's no pattern.

But overall order matters, and that's always the hard part. Also feels like every letter works, so most likely some weird formula that takes every letter (and only letters?) into account.

Right, and I've done some of that too,
but the abc no every other combo yes
is messing with any ideas I've had

alright, I can give a hint in spoilers: I drew an inspiration for the rule from the nickname of one of the players.

Haven't checked that this works everywhere in all of the already answered ones, but

Guess: The question must contain a two-letter abbreviation for an element.

Come on! I should have guessed this. I've even done a very similar rule myself in the past, just before the long break in this thread! I guess I understand now why that one was so hard. I was at least getting close, I think.

Guess: Taking a=1, b=2, ..., z=26, summing the value of letters in the question, return yes iff. the total value is even.
