Seriously though, our administrator (CL), first decided to have a thread regarding the rules. Then, after it seemed the problems continued, HE decided to create a seperate forum with the rules listed, because HE thought it would stand out more. So, it is now the way it is because HE wants it that way. I completely agree with him because once the banning starts, members can't say they weren't aware of the rules when they're right here in their own forum.

The site rules have never been permanently posted before. They existed as stickies in the past, but stickies get overlooked after a short time. They get overlooked, we remove them, and then we no longer have site rules posted anywhere for the newcomers to reference.
They do have to exist in order to avoid the "I didn't know I was doing anything wrong" response.
How about we post them as an announcement at the beginning of the Site Improvements forum and change it to "Site Rules and Suggestions". I think we can also lose the Abuse Report forum -- this now gets handled via pm's to the mods, and doesn't really need to be held public.
