To calculate your user type, use the following equation:
0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 values
a b c d e 0 1 2 3 4
f g h i j 5 6 7 8 9
k l m n o 1 2 3 4 5 <-- Roman Numerals
p q r s t . & - !
u v w x y ?
Values owned by each letter/number/symbol is added together, and if
there are two digits, the digits will be added together so the result
will not exceed 10. (54 means 5+4=9) 5+5=10 is treated as a zero.
In your result, 0 grants you type A, 1 grants type B, etc.
C A P C O M
2+0+0+2+4+2 = 10 = 1 + 0 = 1 (Type B)
