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 (Matt)
   Rule 4-2: Especially if you try way too hard to be helpful (winmaster)
   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 13: Ferret is actually a ferret.
Rule 14: If you post something worse than pangtongshu, you deserve a ban.

Rule 11: You must have pictures to prove your statement.

I still think this should just be links for AG

You could satire it a bit..

You must have links, graphs, charts, quotes from an extremely reliable source, and big words to prove your statement

Also,,another rule..for WEPR
Wikipedia can actually be a reliable source. There is such a thing as references..learn it

I also do not know what WERP is...no wait, that's the World Events, Religion and Politics section. Ha now I know. And yeah, that would be good.

Rule 11-1: You must also have links, references, cross-examination and excellent vocabulary in WERP.
Rule 11-2: Wikipedia is a reference. Your teacher is wrong.

I think we should keep "pics" because it's a reference to the infamous "Pics or it didn't happen" line.

Wikipedia is not a reference by itself. Yes, you can check their sources, but it should be nothing more than the starting ground. Keep in mind that just because they cite a source doesn't mean that it's even a good one.

Dude, I know. Everyone "knows" Wikipedia isn't a solid website for information, but we use it anyway. Lots of people (myself included) just use the information on the Wiki page instead of using a reference (don't tell on me). Professors and teachers hate this, because it's inaccurate and nearly plaigarism, but students do it anyway because it's faster. Hence, the rule "Wikipedia is a reference. Your teacher is wrong" is more of a sarcastic rule, but a rule nonetheless as far as Armor Games and the Internet is concerned.

I once referred to Wikipedia as "Wikipedia, the Internet God of Factual Information" in an assignment. Didn't lost any points. It's funny. Most of the rules are funny, and most of the Rules of the Internet are funny because they're true, like it or not. Rule 34 is true, whether we like it or not, and Rule 11-2 is true because students often discount their teacher's instructions and use Wikipedia information anyway.

tl;dr version: That's true in real life, but people do it anyway, which makes it a Rule of Armor Games. There aren't The Rules of College Success. They're rules that apply to people using the web, and people use wikipedia articles for just about everything.
