    Same, until I became a mod, then I read through them fully.

    I've only read them when I first joined, which is 3 and a half years ago. I guess I should read them again?

    I have them all tattooed on my back, it's the only way they'd promote me.

    The only rule as such around here is "no ROMs". Everything else is just common decency, I guess. Politeness is universal.



    1: No ROMs.
    2: Play nice.
    3: Don't be an ass.
    4: No ROMs.
    5: There is no rule number 5.
    6: No ROMs.

    There are actually rules here? [​IMG]
    Wow..thats news to me....

    Anyways, in all seriousness, I briefly scanned over them and basically gathered, no posting or asking for roms, don't be an ass and use common sense. Anything I missed?

    Narin and Veho got it all. Except the "Dont Be an Ass" rule doesnt apply to some members [​IMG]

    EDIT: oh yeah, i skimmed Da Rulez once or twice, never took time to read them. perhaps the "tl; dr" is appropriate here? perhaps not >_

    We've got rules here? [​IMG]

    Yeah clearly there are rules here. I wouldn't be here either if the forum was substandard. You can find substandard anywhere on the internet.

    We have to NOT discuss what we already know everyone is already very fluent on anyways.
    No links, requests, or questions on how to get roms.

    Seems funny, because we have so many discussions about the products we all know use roms [​IMG]
    But rules is rules.

    No where in the rules is there mention of not being a damn troll apparently though (I looked slowly and it isn't there).

    But considering this ... "When replying to a topic, don't; unless you have something meaningful to say or something that will contribute to the discussion. Posts such as "Yes" or "I agree" or "LOL" are useless and are wasteful on the servers. This is not GameFAQ's!" clearly it is considered bad form to type "Hi Mom".

    I would rather they included annoying troll remarks, but hmm I guess there is a bit of troll in too many of us already [​IMG]

    Let he who is without troll-ness, cast the first stone.

    I agree with gizmo_gal: Scanned them, use common sense, refer back to them before posting something that could be "on the line".

    I'll track down all the members who voted No and delete their account so they have to register and read the rules again! [​IMG]

    You all are liars I say!

    But yea, as long as you use common sense, then you can't really get in trouble here. This site may be about hacking and piracy for the most part, but they keep things legal and don't allow links to roms and illegal content. This way they can't get a nasty Cease and Desist notice and get taken down.
