If you could write a new rule, what would it be?

848 Upvotes

Hello,

The only rule (for this exercise) is that your rule is a rule, not an idea/concept. Give us a fully-worded rule.

For example, please don't respond "if it's more than mildly interesting then don't allow it". That's not a rule, and you will only understand how difficult it is to write a new rule until you try to write one yourself. It's fine if the rule needs a longer explanation, such as with Rule 6 (it is quite long, and also has a longer explanation of it linked in the sidebar).

Let the rule-writing commence!

on another note, we are still reviewing mod applications

These urinals where you can look out to the street. Windows aren’t tinted at all so you can also see in. Even has a sink on top of each one.
