Basically you are given a set of rules. Any post you make in this thread must follow these rules, or else you will be disqualified. But here's the catch: At the end of your post, you can (but do not have to) create an additional rule that every post after has to follow. (Be aware: if you create a new rule, you have to follow it too when you post afterward.)
However, a rule can be made null and void if any of the following occurs:
1) The player who created the rule has been disqualified.
2) The rule directly conflicts with a previous rule.
3) The rule is too broad or would make it impossible to post. (i.e. a rule stating that you cannot use pronouns)
4) .... (I will add more if I have too (I probably won't have too)
If you believe a rule should be nullified for any of these reasons or noticed someone did not follow a previous rule, say so at the end of your post (you will not be penalized). But be careful: you may be wrong....
If I see that a rule should be nullified or someone has been disqualified, I will make a post stating so.
The first ten people to post in the thread (not counting me) will be able to play.
So, let's get this started:
New Rule: New rules must affect everybody and cannot be targeted towards one person or group.
New rule: You must disable your layout in every post.
I have it set so that I cannot see layouts, so I cannot tell whether you are following this rule or not. Also, this rule only targets people with layouts (a specific group). So I am nullifying this rule.
Also, Pseudo-dino didn't follow a rule, so he is disqualified. Since he is disqualified, all of his rules are nullified.
EDIT: I'm going to keep track of the previously created rules so the game is a bit easier to follow.
So, the rules are:
(TRS) New rules must affect everybody and cannot be targeted towards one person or group.
(TRS) You may not edit your posts. (this was originally Noobish Noobsicle's rule, but I'm stealing it because I want it to be permanent)
(Noobish Noobsicle) You must use a hyperlink in your posts.
(Yakov) You must specify the time you started typing up your post (including timezone).
(Yakov) Your post must have at least three paragraphs (that is, blocks of text separated by an empty line).
One thing though. Noobish didn't follow my new rule and you don't have it posted. I guess it was kinda unfair, so I'm not gonna be like
"ima firin mah lazer" at you (oh right, the meme rule is gone huh?), but quote my post to find the rule I posted.
Oh, and by the way, this is the music I was trying to embed in the CSS abuse thread, but for some reason, it just wouldn't embed...
Just because I have to, I'm going to say that I started typing this post at 5:14 P.M PST.
And this is just another worthless line of text.
Random fact: my original avatar, face.gif, took about thirty seconds to make in photoshop.
New Rule: Your post must follow your new rule.
Also, what happens if you don't post in 48 hours? Does each person who waits more than 48 hours get DQ'd? That would be unfair, simply because if one sees it's been more than 48 hours, he won't post because he'll get DQ'd, causing the thread to die.
