From this point onward, please use this link when posting the rules:
http://pastebin.com/raw/KvTRzPjW
a bot command will be created later on as a temporary measure until this link can be assigned to the Uri .rules command.
It is a pastebin and won't be as nice looking as I'd like it to be. I will try to create something that looks nicer later when I'm not at work, but this will be good enough for now.
Note: Also added version number to rules in an attempt to keep track of changes. This one is 2.1.0.

Lets use this: http://animejoytvchatrules.chatango.com/

Looks a bit less mechanical and more friendly, while we wait for the update. -The Disqus link doesn't seem to work, is there a different URL?

I don't know anything about Disqus, however there is a working link to report broken videos on the videos themselves. May be best to just remove that note at the end of the rules since it doesn't work.

I do like the look of that rules link, but I have issue with it being hosted on a Chatango profile. Chatango profiles are often distorted or not viewable at all by certain phones or computers without flash or with outdated flash. For example, I attempted to check that link with my phone, I see a blank white screen with the account name and picture at the top.

Pastebin is by no means fancy, but the lack of any fancy elements makes it highly accessible to most devices. It works on every phone or computer I've tried to access it on, and it doesn't look bad, only a bit plain.

TL;DR version: Pastebin stays, for now at least, because accessibility.

hi, i've stolen jeff's account. does anyone mind if i clean up the language here a bit? some of it seems overly long and descriptive, like people aren't that stupid, just because something isn't written exactly in the rules doesn't mean it doesn't fall under a more general category, and dancing around the ruleset is already vs them...
plus they take far too long to read, i've noticed users being gone for a number of minutes when we direct them here

Could I perhaps suggest slightly having a color switch between paragraphs or something? It break the longness of the text as people are reading it. The way it is now, will probably become long and boring.

The current method of rule hosting, pastebin, doesn't give us that option AFAIK. The forum does, but most of the time when people read it, they read it on the link given by uri, the pastebin. I had been looking into an alternate host site but never had the time to find something that works well. Thinking a wordpress or google docs may be able to do it better.

Also, no one will mind if you shorten them, I think. However this is already shorter than they were before. Many unnecessary lines were removed when switching to this.

As an added note, I've heard a few people say that the disqus link given for reporting broken videos does not actually work. That may be best to remove if this is the case.

Please do shorten away. Also maybe a Weebly or WIX website would work for hosting them, I wouldn't mind dressing that up, if everyone thinks it would work for cells and other devices. I believe they are both supposed, and moreover should given we aren't needing flash for anything.
