The Rules is a list of, as it sounds, rules. All of them must be followed by all users on PFQ, as breaking them may result in a warning or Account Lock. If a user has questions about the Rules, they can be asked in the Questions about Site Rules thread.
These are the rules displayed upon sign up, and are a more simplified version of the PFQ rule-set. The entire list of rules can be found in the Rules thread.
