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?

There are now 34 of them, plus the additions. Strop, I would appreciate your feedback very much.

Technically 35, since Rule 35 already exists and is a permanent rule for the Internet in general. Anyway. Personally, I'm impressed that we got up to 35 and that almost all of them are Armor Games exclusive.

We need more rules about moderators and their unique personalities/sayings. I already have a rule about Dan, Strop, Strip and Ferret. What about MrDayCee, or Gantic, or Devoidless? There have to be a few more we can come up with.

And Freakenstein and NoName and... the one female moderator who's name I forget.

And I could come up with some of the admins.

How about something along the lines of

If you have done something to get on the bad-side of ModDayCee, you deserve a temp-ban
-If you've done something to make ModDayCee type a message without using an emoticon, you deserve a perma-ban

Gantic is the White Rabbit, jeol is the buny rabit

So I'm supposed to post 'I love Armor Games'? Gee.

haha these are not bad, not bad at all. I'd like to propose a sub-clause:

21-1: Unless you are/were a moderator

But I'm not sure how seriously to consider it.

The same applies to Ferret. When he stops using smiley faces, you're in for it.

Gantic is the White Rabbit, jeol is the buny rabbit


Gantic has always been a rabbit. Maybe that should go with the "Ferret is a ferret" rule.

You're officially the first person to read all of the rules, apparently.

21-1: Unless you are/were a moderator


Possibly.

Rule 13: Ferret is actually a ferret.
Rule 13-1: And Gantic is actually a rabbit.

Rule 42: Silver is always devoid of logic, no matter what or where or what.

Eh, I'mma post a rule so I can't get told off for spam or annoyance (though I do take credit :3 ). Add it if you want, but I can nearly guarantee that R2 and more importantly Su- er, Storm want to murder me brutally.

I know what you're talking about... if you do I will play the knife game with your hand, and let me tell you that I am not very accurate.

I think you'd quicker do it with my heart. Anyway, come onto the chat, I'm bored. :C

Fine, no murder. Don't ban me please :3
I think the 'StormWalker is very violent" rule is good.

I think having a rule dedicated to you already should be okay for now. Several people do now. Hm. Maybe we could have a rule about
1. Really long "About Me" sections (because people don't read them, usually)
2. Pages that make your mouse cursor turn into something else (R2, for example)
3. Members that have been here forever but never post, or members with a signature style of talking (such as the third-person rule).
4. Flash games! This site is all about Flash Games and Forums, and most of the Rules are about the forums. We need some new Flash Game rules.
5. New members that immediately want you to "Friend" them.

and whatever else comes to mind.

Personally, I really like Rule 27 and 28 because it's always weird when people use Caps Lock by accident.

And, of course, Rule 24: Armor Games still doesn't have an "EDIT" button for posts.

Rule 29: Check your grammar for god's sake.
Rule 30: Copy and paste your post so you don't get ninja'd


Rule 5. That would be a good 5-1, though.
I like the "ninja'd" one. There definitely needs to be one about being ninja'd.
