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 â" 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?

I've never even heard of MrPockets.


He originally started the Third Person Club. It's only funny when he does it; I find everyone else who does it slightly obnoxious, because I knew the original.

And Matt, watch the DPs.

I'll admit that I've been annoyed a few times because it tends to lead to confusion when someone posts in third person and then in first person a few minutes later. *Glares at killersup*

Yes, we've all seen you fail once or twice.

Rule whatever: You can't make a successful AMW thread. Don't try. (Unless you give away free stuff)

How is the Community dying?? Makes no sense.

It's not. Not really at least. It's one of those "the sky is falling" bits. Things have gotten far better than a year ago, at least in my eyes.

True that. I can't even keep my own going without losing interest.

I wouldn't have to DP if we had an "Edit Post" button. >_<

I do not know what AMW stands for. Who wants to be the first to tell me?

The AMW is what most everyone calls the Art, Music, and Writing sub-section in the forums. Its where people, Pang and I included, have personal threads where we can post our own original art.

Rule 4-2: Especially if you try way too hard to be helpful (winmaster)
Rule 4-3: Strop is an exception.

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 &quotics" 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.
