The Rules of the Forum

Postby mountainmage » Wed Apr 01, 2009 10:33 pm

While we have about five hundred members, this Forum has only had about a dozen people regularly posting at any one time. As a result, we have gotten to know each other quite well, and many unspoken rules are agreed upon. While occasionally counterintuitive (read: 'weird' or 'f**ked-up'), they at least provide some semblance of structure. Make sure you pay particular attention to the bolded rules.

2. The is only meant to be used under the proper circumstance: :][>:=~+:
3. Don't compare SMBC to The Far Side, it only .
4. Infanticide is essential.
5. Britonians have the best accent/dress sense/humour/everything.
6. Canadians come from Canadia.
7. GreenCrayon is our sage. If you piss him off, we won't like you.

9. No stating that Samus could beat Optimus Prime in a fight.
10. Don't overuse
10-2. Don't overuse the word
13. Tucker's mom is available all the time for any lad to have his way with. Also, she's fat.
14. It is assured that your thread will be derailed. No exceptions.
15. Proper spelling and grammar is appreciated.
16. The only things better than hookers are space hookers. But watch out for Space-AIDS.
17. is a terrible, deadly, disease and should not be made fun of. Unless a person has it, of course.
18. If, while reading a post, you realize that the person's words can be twisted for yours and others' amusement, do so, and underneath proclaim the quote as being "Fix'd."
19. If you would like to point out something that seems obvious to you but not to another poster, do so and then afterward proclaim that you are "Just sayin'."
19-2. Similar to the above rule, except afterwards proclaim " 'Nuff Said."
21. The Mods are infallible. Except when they're wrong.*
21-2. Zach is also infallible. When he makes mistakes, they're done on purpose to make you feel better about yourself.
22. Footnote usage is both accepted and readily encouraged. They must use smaller-sized (the smallest allowed being size 50) fonts and be done with asterisks.
23. Rulecount ++
28. Megapoints are the official currency of Space and the SMBC forum. Knowledge of a person's reference, answering a trivia question correctly, or other assorted acts of awesome shall be rewarded with megapoints, the quantity of which shall be determined by the person awarding them. Negative points may be awarded to jerks. Also, you cannot award yourself points.

It seems more appropraite for these rules to be posted as a sticky in "General" rather than SMBC.

I literally just sent Mage the exact same thing, but as a PM.

I'm infallible when we're in that cradle of madness we call New Outlandia.

I would bet my modship of New Outlandia* that no one can break all of the rules in one post.

Protip: That's a challenge.

I think I'd have a hard time with rule 23.
Police said they spent some time working out if they could charge the man with being armed with a weapon, as technically he was armed with part of a fish.

Also Rule 10, because nobody has a copy of the original Seal.

Well you could just say that your post has the Yamid Seal of Approval.

At the end, just say Rule 26: blah or whatever. That's rulecount ++.
