Less rules. The only ones I agree with are 1, 5, and 8. Everything else the community can regulate via voting.

I appreciate the feedback! What do you think about #5 (illegal content) potentially being a duplicate of Voat's site-wide user agreement?

I appreciate rule 2 especially about posting the game name, it is nice fore finding thins or knowing what to ignore if you know up front what game is being talked about.

I was about to edit my post to point that out that having number 5 is redundant since illegal content is against the site rules.

My philosophy is that the more general a topic a subverse has the less rules it should have. "Gaming" is pretty general, so having more than 2 rules (subject related posts only, and tag NSFW posts) I see as being too strict.

For example, take a look at the 3 subs I own. /v/rcg and /v/youarefamousnow are very specific in what their subject matters are. If a post does not meet the subject requirements I will delete them (haven't had to yet). And then in /v/snowboarding I have 1 rule, post must be about snowboarding (I might make a NSFW tag, too, but haven't decided yet).

Rules 2, 3, 4, and 6 can all be regulated by the users votes, and even if it's not, they are all able to spawn discussions. Why remove discussions just because someone posted "The cake is a lie!"?

And rules 7 and 9 are rules to control user behavior and I am against mods dictating to the users how they need to behave.

Really, because of all the rules is why I unsubbed from here and subbed /v/videogames.
