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?

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.

Rule 9: If you post in Newcomers, R2D21999 will haunt your dreams.


Rule 16-1: Calling R2D21999 "R2D" means punishment


Of course my personality will get me 2 rules.

A few thingies from me? :3

Rule 16-4 Calling StormWalker âSunWalkerâ is death. However, âStormâ is allowed.
Rule 17-2 And StormWalker, who is a femalloid.

There should be something in there about smilies. I like smilies.

I don't think I've ever seen you called "SunWalker." Can anyone out there agree on this?

Rule 17-2 And StormWalker, who is a femalloid


More like "StormWalker is a femalloid, not a girl"

Someone needs to spend more time playing forum games.
