I'm guessing that rule was removed following the reopening of the forums, as every thread on the forum was a couple years old at that point.

I didn't see any conformation, but idea related: http://forums.glitchcity.info/index.php/topic,6690.0.html

(For Gary/other actual rulemaker these days to see) Is this confirmed now?


I need a new siggy, because this siggy is shitty... shittiggy... shiggy.... something.

It looks like the "Bump" rule is missing?

Quote from: rules
8.Stickies, by their nature, cannot be "bumped" and thus are exempt from this rule.

Above it, it doesn't define "Bump"ing, which may make this a bit confusing.

Do you not know what bump means...?

I kind of do.  I was only asking because I was re-reading the rules, and noticed that rule 8 was refering to a non-existant previous rule. 
When I underline text, that usualy means I am using the [‍acroynm] tag to provide aditional information.  Hover over it to view.

Rules were updated back in May to fix the COMPLETELY broken formatting it had and to remove the temporary rule about posting in topics before maintenance happened.  Seems two of the bumping rule points got removed somehow so I added them back.

I'm guessing that rule was removed following the reopening of the forums, as every thread on the forum was a couple years old at that point.

I didn't see any conformation, but idea related: http://forums.glitchcity.info/index.php/topic,6690.0.html

If you can put what the rule would be into one line, sure.  Currently I removed parts of the second footnote in response.

pffhaha wow how long has that been that way?

edit: oh man, posting without capitalizing stuff is actually against the rules and that's the only way i've done it for years. that's awkward!

welp, truth be told you've got me there haha.

i'm more of the mind that if a given sentence is in actual english and it's legible, capitalization doesn't really matter. but yeah, i guess i should probably start using the shift key, though.

apparently not starting with this post. i dunno.

The grammar rules here have always been pretty dumb, and used mostly to laugh and make fun of specific unpopular members.

I think that the grammar rules are OK. For the correct capitalization part I am not sure if it's really needed, however, I think that correct capitalization helps to make our posts more readable and so should be encouraged personally.

I think that "For those new to English or those who are working to improve their grammar, an informative grammar guide is located here" may sound patronizing though, because people will have some knowledge to be able to read the posts here, and you cannot have one definitive informative grammar. It should probably be rephrased to something like "For people who want to improve their English, here are some small grammar tips".

This sounds much better to me as well. And we could recommend the English section of Stack Exchange, which has helped me on more than one occasion (e.g.: when I wasn't sure if I should use "at", "on", or "in" for a given expression).

OK. I have edited the rules to include my suggestion (rephrasing the improving English suggestion) and yours (adding Stack Exchange as a recommended place to ask questions and receive answers).

The “used mostly to laugh and make fun of specific unpopular members” part is what was dumb about them.

I think there should be a distinction between the forum title and description. They are both bold and I was confused that the link wasn't working. (the "forum rules" redirect)

Have added a new line to the rules:

Quote
- While swearing is allowed, any language that is intentionally offensive towards another with negative connotations will not be tolerated.
