Re: Crawl

Not to be rude, but I think it might be better if you make a thread called "My Rules" or something like that instead of making an individual thread for each rule. Or maybe a rule thread? Because I posted one on the "Life-like rules" variant and nobody even looked at my post Yes, that's what I meant.
