This may very well be the most important thing to happen on this wiki in a good while: A page for rules. I've gotten so tired of having to explain rules and making sure that I'm aware of any breach in rules. I'm not talking about rules for blocking, I'm talking about rules for coding, editing, blogs, article naming, user talk pages, archieving, everything else that I can't think of at this moment. We have so many unwritten rules that it is getting out of hand. What I propose that we make a hub-page that links to several smaller pages that are devided up based on what they are about.
First I want to know if the community wants this and how they want it layed out. Second if the community does want it I want us to think of all the rules we know and post them. Third I want us to make the pages.
Isdrakthül– "The arrow is pointing north, which is up. Up is where the sky is, and the sun and moon are in the sky, which is two. There are two colors in the Yin-Yang, which is from Asia, which is where Buddha was born. Buddha is a religious figure like Jeshua ben Joseph, who was born in Bethlehem, which sounds like Dethl, which is from Link's Awakening. Link's Awakening takes place on an island, and Britain is an island. People in Britain drink tea, which is made from plants, and trees are plants. There are lots of trees in the Amazon Rainforest, which has the Amazon River in it. The Nile is also a river, and it is in Egypt. Egypt has pyramids, which are triangular. Triangles are part of geometry class, which some people have first period. First period is one, and Australia is the only continent with exactly one nation in it. Australia is near New Zealand, which has Kiwis in it. Kiwis are named similarly to Kiwifruits, which are fruits, like bananas, which inspired Matsuo Bashō. Matsuo Bashō is from Japan, which draws cultural elements from China. China contains the Great Wall of China, which is a wall. Therefore, the money is hidden inside this wall."

Yes, I think we definitely need a page about all the rules.
Yes, especially seeing how, if rules apply to one wiki, they should apply to ALL wikis, even if it ruins them. I'm an egalitarian kind of person. Weedle McHairybug (talk) 00:52, July 29, 2010 (UTC)

Doesn't work that way. We follow Wikia's general rules, but we have to make up rules that best fit this wiki. If every wiki had to follow every other's wiki rules, there would be nothing new on each one and it would boring.
We definitely need to write down the rules for editing here. The hub-page idea sounds good to me. One page with all the rules would wind up looking like Wikipedia's, which I doubt many people will ever read since it's so long. Bite-sized pieces are easier to digest.
Richard used to be an admin here, but like many others, his inactivity led to the loss of his rights. As for who writes this, I imagined it would be a collective effort since there is a ton of stuff to remember.

I'm in favor of writing down the rules. And if I can find all of them, I'll write them down myself.
I'm all in favor for writing down the rules. When I started to edit on this wiki, I didn't know any of the rules, so I had to learn them through trial and error. Rules would make things much easier for newcomers.

It's a good idea.
Right now, I would say the community is in agreement about this. So, with that out of the way, we should start brainstorming all the rules that basically relate to everything. I'm pretty sure I know most of the rules here, but for some reason I can't remember any right now. I'll come back later when I can.-- C2 / CC 15:02, August 23, 2010 (UTC)
I made a template a long time back here that contains a lot of stuff, most notably in this situation, the coding. You're welcome to take anything from it in writing up some sort of stylistic rules page if that's what your'e going for.—Triforce 14 04:25, September 22, 2010 (UTC)
