    I thought I'd post this here so that people can see my set of site rules :

    I know some people find this sort of thing useful, so I decided to post it. :banana:

    Thanks. I've been struggling to come up with a set of rules. The template I was using is so wordy I can't imagine anyone reading it.

    Nice set of rules, Alex!
    They will definitely help forum administrators just starting out :).

    How come red text isn't allowed? If a moderator needs to make note, can't they use an asterisk?

    The red text thing is I guess similar to the no all caps one.

    It sounds like you are a bit angry if YOU POST LIKE THIS


    And, on forums like mine, if a moderator edits a post, they do so like this :

    Moderator Note : Please do not .... etc etc

    Inspired by your brief wording of rules, I was able to finish mine. They are up on my forum (which isn't open yet). I might tweak them, but I felt good enough to put them into HTML and load them.

    Mate, thanks, nice example of forum rules. I hope you won't mind me pinching your rules for me to tweak to use on my forum once I put it up. Based on your helpful post here, I decided to join the site :)

    I guess I'll share my forum rules, which you can feel free to use and adapt to your liking, since it mentions some things that are specific to my community. Here's the link: http://www.outlawstar.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?tid=12

    I wanted to create rules that looked presentable and not a wall of copypasta text. Still, your rules could look fantastic and most members won't read them. I want to improve my rules thread since there's more to add to it, but I hope you find it useful.
