    Rule #4. Anyone who uses or refers to rule #4 must start their post with, "Rule #4 is an excellent rule."

    'Rule 4' and any other such rules that contradicts previous rules..Rule 2...are invalid, Rule 4

    Interpretation request - PMP - does this mean that we shouldn't be using words at all and that all rules should be expressed visually?

    Rule 10: (Had been Rule 9 but Banno beat me to the post) The author of this thread shall reveal the "curious implications" prior to any player stating any further rules. He shall also reveal all the consequences of any of the rules already established being broken. (If rules are broken along the way does this entail that the game first annihilates and then reincarnates itself over and over?)

    I got rule 9 in first. this is rule 10.

    Banno got rule 9 in first. A previously unwritten and still unnumbered rule says that if you want to state any rule (other than this one: there can be only one unwritten, unnumbered rule...oh, wait, that's another one...damn!) and especially if you want to claim its status as a numbered rule, then you must state that it is so at the time of stating the rule itself.

    Rule 1 and rule 10 are at odds; now I’m paralyzed by uncertainty. Do I post a rule or no?

    No one can stop you, but if you do a rule will be broken which may lead to chaos... (perhaps the "curious implications" have already been implicitly revealed (is there such a thing as implicit revelation???)) >:)

    Rule #12: Rule #12 is abiding and cannot be overruled, changed or amended by any later given rule or by referring to any earlier rules.

    What you say is clearly not true, which is fine. It just goes to show that the first rules that get promulgated should be procedural rules. If people don't even try to follow the rules that came before, it's not a game at all. It could have been fun and interesting.

    Do you mean it's not true that Banno got rule 9 in first?

    Or do you mean that it's not true what I said about the unwritten rule that you must state that what you say is a rule and is rule number n in order for it to count as such?

    Yeah, but he leads us only into the oblivion of bathroom or laundry politics, and does so without even knowing what they are or that he is doing it. Truly a case of the blind leading the blind.

    I think I see the issue. I submitted Rule 9 and included Banno's avatar in it. I was trying to follow my interpretation of Rule 2 - which, I think, says that rules should be expressed visually not in words. I asked if that was a correct interpretation, but no one responded.

    Rule 9 says that Banno gets to decide any conflicts in the game.

    I had such high hopes for Fred as Supreme Leader, but he just drank the toilet water and started chewing on the wall, so I'm not sure he's the intellectual I thought he was.

    You noticed?

    And not so meaningless that we got rule 13 from Janus.

    ...which is also meaningless.

    But what wouldn't be meaningless yet true in this World.
