Re: Laws of MTF

Is there a law for a newbie who asks a poll or question that:

1. Every newbie asks.
2. Where a senior poster and says yeah, that's been asked yesterday (last week, last year, always).
3. Another senior poster actually responds to the question
4. The end poll gets 100s of responses.

TF's law: 1/4 posters will spell "lose" as "loose".

That's a corollary of law 17, which, btw, is MY law, though not so credited ( Blaze ).

Lightbulb Re: Laws of MTF

Since everyone at MTF is busy evolving and amending the laws, would one of the admin or the wise mods plant the name of the country when my pointer points at the flag above the avatar's face. All the scroll-down reads is 'country flag'. What am I supposed to do everytime I come across new coloured lines. SEarch on the internet.
A little amendment...That is all.

Click on the user's name right below the flag and a drop-down menu should come up. Click "View Public Profile" on the menu, and the country corresponding to the flag will be listed in the user's profile.

But dude, that's no fun. why do all the hard work? I could simply point at the flag and get the name of the country. Vamos!

Re: Laws of MTF

Alright then Blaze. If my Croat thing can't become a law on its own I'll have to think of another.

Stebs Law

Any quote made by a player disliked by any particular poster can, will and must be taken out of context as a means of bashing the player in question. This will result in pages of arguments where half the posters have actually read or listened to the particular quote and the other half are making assumptions.

Can it be one?

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game
