    Most of us know about the RULE OF THE INTERNET! ... I think:
    But I did not understand some of them.
    Is rule 2 the same as rule 1 (exception being the NOT) just to enforce the argument?
    From rule 3-7 are thy talking about the Anonymous, or about each person being anonymous?
    What does Desu from rule 41 refer to or mean?
    What does rule 47 mean?

    The questions that I just asked may be very simple to answer, but because of my limited vocabulary (I am not from USA nor UK) I can't answer them myself, well I kind of can but I am not sure of myself!
    Thank you for your time!

    Not great to link to ED. Full of NSFW if I'm not mistaken.

    All Internet patrons are anonymous.... If you are not you are a lair. (united as one... divided by zero, oh shi-)

    This is desu

    47 refers to Habbo, an MMORPG of sorts...

    Everything else, good luck.... and do read the full rules as suggested above. The internet is serious business.

    Okay ArchyTaichou, I've altered your link.
    Around here we actually go by rules one and two.

    Meaning that here we don't want links to 4chan, or similar sites such as ED.

    Future links to ED will be treated exactly the same as linking to 4chan;
    the post and/or thread will be deleted and warns will be issued.
    (This goes for everyone.)

    Sorry guys, I didn't any NSFW stuff when I clicked on that link.
    The other list of rules, the one that tj_cool linked, is pretty shitty as half of them make absolute nonsense, to me at least.
    And what do you mean Mr jgu1994 by saying: This isn't 4chan?
    No offence to anybody, just asking!

    lol, I have no idea what I just have done, if I have done something bad I have done it by TOTAL ACCIDENT, please forgive me!

    The only thing you did "wrong" was linking to that one site that isn't really accepted here. Therefor, Vulpes changed the link to something else. That is all.

    I believe it's because you linked to a site that also links and has adverts that aren't considered altogether very polite.

    Feel free to ask a member of staff to help you with understanding the rules, by PM if so desired.

    Also, tj ninja'd me.

    And tj, language! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Well now there's nothing wrong with your thread.

    There are no links to NSFW sites, and no double posts.
    You've not been warned for any of these things because we try to give most newcomers a little bit more leeway regarding our regulations.

    Just remember that if you can't show something to someone's little brother, we don't want it here.
    And if you could get in trouble for downloading it, we don't want a link to it.

    It's pretty easy when you get used to it.
