I felt like expanding the first rule Jeff posted on the blog a while back.. They are all based on the original Fight Club rules.
The Rules of Stack Overflow.
- 1st RULE: You do not talk about Stack Overflow on Stack Overflow
- 2nd RULE: You DO NOT talk about Stack Overflow on Stack Overflow. That's what Meta is for.
- 3rd RULE: If someone votes to close or reports to the mod, the question is over.
- 4th RULE: Only one accepted answer to a question.
- 5th RULE: One answer from a user at a time.
- 6th RULE: No shirts, no shoes.
- 7th RULE: Questions will go on as long as they have to.
- 8th RULE: If this is your first time at Stack Overflow, you HAVE to read the FAQ.
- 9th RULE: Paint whenever you can.
- 10th RULE: Don't use soul-less circles!
- 11th RULE: NEVER EVER make up rules for Stack Overflow!
