Okay, I like rules. I like to follow the rules. That makes it difficult for folks to limit my fun. So, if the HP forum were a sand box what rules would you as a player in the box like to see? I know there's an official set of rules for the forum somewhere, but I can't put my finger on the link at the moment. Let's think of this thread as kin to the No Rant Thread. Humor, mutual respect and courtesy are welcomed here. My rule for the sand box would be:
1. You can use what ever color shovel you want to dig with, just don't throw sand or the shovel or your bucket at anyone else.
This is the cutest thread. I would divide the sand box designated play times to day and night with the night time being for more grown up discourse, debate if you will, but in a nice way with no throwing of sand allowed . Kitties and unicorns would be welcome and trolls would be barbecued for kitty kibble.
Laughing and loving each other is not just accepted, but highly-encouraged.
Just like a normal sandbox...no killjoy adults allowed. Children won't be able to have fun.
One difference, though. Cats are allowed in the forums, but not in the sandbox.
Hehe! I was thinking this one too.
Also no stealing anyone else's shovel or pail.
I'm bad today. I read something really "snide" in this. I know that's not what you said or meant, it's me being really "catty." Something I don't do often. I need to go sit in the corner for a bit. Oh, and no play in the sandbox either. Yikes.
Before you say anything in the sandbox, ask yourself:
Is it true?
Is it kind?
Is it necessary?
If the answer is no, go play in the corner, quietly, until you have something to say that fits this criteria.
Also: all whining children will be put down for naps, and have their shovels revoked until they are less cranky.
No pouting or sulking. If you are so inclined, please leave as to not sullen the atmosphere of the sandbox. Thank you.
You are allowed to come in and play as long as you are peaceful with others, and do not get upset with natural events.
That is very good,, however, I assume it excludes natural events like poo in the sandbox.
Leave attitudes somewhere else, they do not belong in the sandbox.
See. With folks like these in the sand box, who's gonna wanna throw sand?
I want to throw sand in ppl's eyes... and I want a minibar on the side.
Sed-me, fine, but please allow me to get a pair of safety goggles first. Thank you.
Great, idea, Ken.
Does HP have a free set of those for us?
I have one question: Is it legal or alright with everyone if I have a few bites of the dry sand for lunch?
I have no objection, but you will have to file a Dental Agreement which releases Hub Pages regarding any wear and tear to your teeth.
According to the rules, I believe that you would have to go sit in the corner.
LOL - what fun !
Hmmm, how about "Bring extra tools if you have them so that you can share with others"
Why is everyone stuck on this? Only animals do that. None of which are allowed in the sandbox.

Bump our own threads 5 or 6 times within a few hours just to get people to comment on them? (When no one else is paying attention to that thread)

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...

I always recommend Hubbers to write at several rev-sharing sites for two reasons: one, not to put all your eggs in one basket and two, so you can create an interconnected web of articles across the internet to increase your profile as a writer (which will do you far more good than a big body...
