Please review the above rules. Due to several decisions by the powers that be, they have been edited and updated in a few places.

Clarification of the Content rule.

"Do not post content related to other browser-based online games."

Hence, you can talk about your typical boxed PC game. Not other games played inside your browser of choice.
