Are you familiar with the Rules of the Internet? There are 100 of them (most are irrelevent and/or disgusting) but a few are well-known. Feel free to look up the whole set on Urban Dictionary (shame on you), but in the interest of fairness I think we should have a set of Rules for Armor Games.

A few well-known (or generally agreed on) Internet rules are:
1. Do not talk about /b/
2. Do NOT talk about /b/
3. We are Anonymous.
--
8. There are no real rules about posting.
9. There are no real rules about moderation either ΓΆ" enjoy your ban.
--
11. You must have pictures to prove your statement.
12. Lurk moar - it's never enough.
--
14. Do not argue with a troll - it means that they win.
--
16. There are NO girls on the internet.
--
31. CAPSLOCK IS CRUISE CONTROL FOR COOL.
32. EVEN WITH CRUISE CONTROL YOU STILL HAVE TO STEER.
--
34. (You already know Rule 34)
35. If no (Rule 34) is found, it will be created.
--
49. The internet makes you stupid.
50. Anything can be a meme.
--
62. The internet is SERIOUS FREAKIN' BUSINESS.

The "Rule of the Internet" are also up for discussion. So. "Rules of Armor Games" anyone?

If you're going to quote the rules of the internet, at least put them with their assigned numbers.

11. You must have pictures to prove your statement.
12. Lurk moar - it's never enough.


32 and 33 respectively.

16. There are NO girls on the internet.


Rule 30. A well-known one, might I add.


31. CAPSLOCK IS CRUISE CONTROL FOR COOL.
32. EVEN WITH CRUISE CONTROL YOU STILL HAVE TO STEER.


39 and 40, not 31 and 32.

49. The internet makes you stupid.
50. Anything can be a meme.


I agree with your version of 49, but the real rule 49 is "One cat leads to another" while rule 50 is "Another cat leads to Zippo Cat."

62. The internet is SERIOUS FREAKIN' BUSINESS.


Rule 62 is "It has been cracked and pirated. No exceptions."

There seem to be exceptions here on AG..such as Chillz explaining the origins of the MLP fanbase

11. You must have pictures to prove your statement.


For Ag..more of a reliable source and/or link
We also tend to be more trusting of what people say on here too from what I've seen...frankly, I just think that everything everyone on here says is a lie..and that everyone but me is either a fat pedo trying to touch me or a government agent tracking me. Makes everything easier

12. Lurk moar - it's never enough.


Le Skater

14. Do not argue with a troll - it means that they win.


Unless you are in WEPR or are a mod/admin

16. There are NO girls on the internet.


Except for myself

34. (You already know Rule 34)
35. If no (Rule 34) is found, it will be created.


Strop/Stip

Need moar, however

49. The internet makes you stupid.


Spare for WEPR, AMW, and a few select users

-----

Extra rules:

-Calling R2 R2D=punishment
-Capitalizing my name=death

I stated, at the beginning of the post, that I got them from Urban Dictionary. The lists are not the same and they are also not the same compared to several other lists I have found. There is no "final" order of the Rules of the Internet. Until then, mine is based on UD, which is why I said it at the very beginning.

Eh, 4chan...

I never found these that funny. It is just a bunch of inside jokes and from someone who never went to 4chan it doesn't sound that funny.

I can see how some people would find this funny but...eh.

On the other hand when it is inside jokes THAT I GET. :)

Besides, the rules of the internet site that Skulltivator posted has 9,000 rules, plus a bunch of preliminary rules, plus Rule 123456789.

I'm willing to bet at least 85% of them are jokes, crude or completely irrelevent. Not exactly a reliable list. We're talking actual, debatable rules. Not "Rule 570: Ummmm....."

That's what I'm talking about. Inside "rules" that apply only to Armor Games. It doesn't have to have 500 of them. Just a list.

Example:
Photos have to placed in [img] tabs, not [IMG]. Get it right.
You will never be a Moderator.
If you do something worse than Strop, you deserve to be banned.
Ferret is actually a ferret.

Look at the first page of search results. Every one of those lists is roughly the same except Urban Dictionary's list, which looks nothing like the others for some reason. It's the only list I could find that didn't list rule 30 correctly, as well as many other rules, which I find suspicious because it makes me think Urban Dictionary doesn't know the rules of the internet.
