Angela, when Eric looks at you he sees you in Binary. The beers (or other beverage of choice) just relaxes him and improves the math.

of us.

Why Ian? It is my thread and the only thing I frown on is two posts in a row by the same person. Since the Mods don't play often, but keep an eye on the rules part, so things should move along smoothly.
If I find an offending post, I normally send you a PM first. After your edit time is up, I report it.
Treat others as you would like to be treated is my Moto.

My problem is that the rules don't get posted and then people get moderated for violating rules they weren't aware of.

But like I said, I don't want to get nasty here. You aren't the only one recently who hasn't posted the rules.

Sorry you are upset David. I posted my personal rule and the ones the Mods have to follow. If you get Modded for anything outside of this, send me a PM. I am more than happy to duke it out, if I find your reason valid.
There is also Fred our one and only SuperMod. He is great people and will answer your concerns.
So let my game run in peace and relegate the other stuff to private. PLEASE!

Every post has to follow the rules at the left of the post box. Only Fred can grant an exception to that and he doesn't.

In the last person, the OP is the one who has to enforce the rules about multiple posts, etc. I would hope the mods don't concern themselves with that, and OP's don't red-x for that. If someone by accident double clicks and gets a double post, (usually obvious as the time is within a few seconds) I would hope they red-x their duplicate and ask a mod to hide it. If I were running the game I wouldn't count such as a "double post" as I believe that was for intentionally double posting.

(As an aside, you should also edit the duplicate to say it was a mistake so that people coming by while you are waiting for a moderator to hide it are aware you didn't intend to double post.)

Occasionally an OP has requested topicality, such as requesting every post contain say "win" or a variant. Some got creative, some just tossed the word on the end and some ignored the request.

We did hash out the basic rules earlier in this thread and one was to post the rules at the start of a new round. I'm not going to red-x uli for not doing so. She rarely posts in this game and appeared uncomfortable winning while she was a mod and that was for a very long time.

We should all be flexible and tolerant. Just call that advice.

Back when I was still a mod I posted on here that That the rules were not posted in the then current LPTPW thread.

So Now we have another disgruntled player because it is to hard to copy and paste the rules from the last time they got posted.

Maybe you need to make a rule that if the winner dosent post the rules in the first thread he must forfit the win.

Edit- And I was the one who had to go way way back in the archives to find the damn rules. Yes they have been modified over the course of play by consensus. But They do need to posted at the start of each new winner.

And the Mods dont need to mediate a game that the rules should have been posted for.

Just relax will ya?
We all know the rules and newbies can be introduced in a friendly way to them. And slips by regulars usually don't require more than a raised eyebrow.

Follow the spirit not the letter.

And anyway it's all just a guideline. [which doesn't give you leave to ignore them. But it puts the responsability for your actions into your hands, not into the hands of some lawyer. If I wanted to be nasty, I'd quote what most Germans said after WW II. I'm German. I wouldn't have let them get away with it. But it's easier to follow a rule than to have your own moral compass.]

I'll shut up before it feels like politcs...

This may have been suggested before, but how about a single-post, locked sticky thread that lists all the permanent rules for all the games. If someone wants to add special rules when they have control of a thread, they can do so in the first post. Discussion should be here in the Discussion thread.

Now that Mystery Landscape and counting to xxxxx have gone away, it would be fairly easy to compile such a list. I might even be willing to do it, if it can wait until next week.

(Wait: is Mystery Landscape officially out of business, or is it just dormant for lack of interest?)

Beet's Give Us a Caption # 53
This was one of the hardest ones
ever for me to judge. I was thinking
of how His Holiness might judge it,
and then realized that he would find
a way to see that every one was a winner.
