You guys...come on...I worked hard on this.

Okay, listen up. It's been a while. Several of the rules involve AG users. However, not all of them are still with us. If you know of a specific user that needs to be removed, mention them (these rules are for anyone, including new people. No point in referring to users who are gone), so the list can be updated. Seriously, Ferret offered to present this to the Moderator board. New users are invited to contribute as well.

[b]Version 3.0: Revived For Official Updating[b]

-The Rules of Armor Games-

Rule 1: Do not talk about Dan.
Rule 2: Do NOT talk about Dan.
Rule 3: There are three levels of users. Admins, then Mods, then you.
Rule 4: You will never be a Moderator.
  Rule 4-1: Especially if you openly state you want to be one (MattEmAngel)
  Rule 4-2: Especially if you try way too hard to be helpful (winmaster1)
  Rule 4-3: Strop is an exception.
Rule 5: No one thinks bad spelling/grammar is funny or cool. Go away.
Rule 6: We already have a thread for "You're banned."
Rule 7: There are no real rules about posting.
  Rule 7-1: Yes, there are. Enjoy your ban.
  Rule 7-2: Serious mischief = banhammer.
Rule 8: There are rules for making and playing RPGs, but no one reads them.
Rule 9: If you post in Newcomers, R2D21999 will haunt your dreams.
Rule 10: "Respond with 'I love Armor Games' to prove you've read this."
Rule 11: You must have pictures to prove your statement.
  Rule 11-1: You must also have links, references, quotes, and perfect grammar to prove your statement in WEPRE.
  Rule 11-2: Wikipedia is not a reference.
  Rule 11-3: All of your carefully-worded arguments can easily be ignored.
Rule 12: Don't argue with trolls. Report them.
Rule 13: Ferret is actually a ferret.
  Rule 13-1: Gantic is actually a rabbit.
  Rule 13-2: boppins is actually a magical unicorn.
Rule 14: If you post something worse than pangtongshu, you deserve a ban.
Rule 15: Use [img] tags, not [IMG] tags. It's not complicated.
Rule 16: You are not allowed to misprint user names.
  Rule 16-1: Calling R2D21999 "R2D" means punishment.
  Rule 16-2: Calling pangtongshu "Pang" means death.
  Rule 16-3: Calling StormWalker “SunWalker” means death.
  Rule 16-4: Calling MattEmAngel "MattEm" doesn't even make sense.
Rule 17: There are NO girls on Armor Games.
  Rule 17-1: Except pang, maybe.
  Rule 17-2: StormWalker is a femalloid, whatever that means.
Rule 18: Salvidian will never tell. Never.
Rule 19: They aren't "Achievements," they're "Quests." They are far superior.
Rule 20: This is Armor Games, not Kongregate, Newgrounds or Miniclip. We don't do everything they do. You know why? Because this is Armor Games.
Rule 21: You cannot make a successful Thread in AMW.
Rule 22: Referring to yourself in the 3rd person is not cool.

Rule 32: You can’t find his Armatar because he got it from an Armatar Contest a year ago.
Rule 33:
Rule 34: If it has Quests, there is a thread for it. No exceptions.
Rule 35: If no thread is found, it will be made.
Rule 36: "Sorry, ninja'd."
  Rule 36-1: It is the ninja'd to be blamed for the ninja'ing, not the ninja.
Rule 37: Take two minutes to fix your spelling and grammar before posting in an RPG.

Rule 39: "Hay guyz can i join rpg? i didnt read teh rulez or anything LOL." Go away.

Rule 45: Nice question. Have you ever heard of Google?
  Rule 45-1: No? Google it.
Rule 46: Play the game before you rate it. 8.5 is not a universal rating.
  Rule 46-1: You can't give a game a 10.
  Rule 46-2: John games are an exception.
Rule 47: Being "friended" on Armor Games is not as important as you think it is.

Rule 55: Go to "Atheism vs. Theism." Lose faith in humanity.
  Rule 55-1: Your opinion is always wrong.
Rule 56: Stop telling us about your new dubstep track. We know you stole it.

Rule 64: tl;dr

FAQ for new users who don't get some of the rules:
1. Dan is the creator/founder of Armor Games.
11-1. WEPRE is World Events, Politics, Religion, etc. It's a thread.
13. Ferret, Gantic and boppins are all Moderators.
18. Sal started a mysterious concept and refused to release details about it. It drove us nuts.
21. AMW is Art, Music and Writing. Most threads just don't work.
23. Inside joke. Mostly applied to Newcomers.
29. Refers to opinions and concepts throughout the forums.
30. "Legacy" quests comes from levels earned in the previous Armor Games set-up. Points were earned for various actions. A rank was earned for a set number of points. Previous users got these Legacy quests as a reward for sticking around.
36. Ninja'd is when someone replies to a post, but another user posts before them, screwing up the order and making things a bit confusing. You post again saying "Sorry, ninja'd" so people understand the mistake. It usually happens in "Unfortunately/Fortunately" in the Forum Games.
41. Many people with programming questions make a new thread for that specific questions instead of "lurking," which means looking through other threads to find the answer to your question.
46-2: John makes all the blue elephant games.
48. and 49. Armor Points were the previous scoring system. You earned them for commenting, rating games, submitting games, etc. It was very popular because you unlocked new Tiers and Armatars, but it caused a lot of useless posts/ratings so people could boost their numbers. It has been replaced with Quests. All unlockable Armatars are now unlocked, so don't worry about it. The only downside is you cannot earn Legacy Quests (see 30).
52. "Bumping" a thread means posting twice so it will return to the top of the list in the hope of gaining attention. One bump, after several hours or a day, is fine. Bumping it constantly is immature and will not help. If no one replies after a bump, let your idea go. Suggestion: post new ideas later in the day, when people are home from school/work. More people will be on AG. Better chances.
57. and 58. refers to a current thread in Video Games that discussed Playstation, Xbox and the Wii and which is better. It's still going.
62. "Locked" threads cannot be posted on. Mods and Admins choose which to lock. Usually it is because of spam, offensive content, repeat ideas or by request. They are never unlocked afterwards.
63. Rule 63 of the Internet is "For every male character, there is a female counterpart. No exceptions." Strop, an AG Mod, has a second account called Strip, which is a female version of him. It's disturbing and yours will never be as famous.
64. Too Long; Didn't Read. Applies to people who scrolled down to the bottom of the list to see how it ended. You are lazy, go back and read it.
