Created subtopic: Proper location / designation for such rules
In my opinion, rules 7 and 9 should definitely be part of the bylaws. ESB is not a game wiki. It is a database on everything having to do with SpongeBob Squarepants. If there is a hurt and heal going on about something not relevant to SP SB, and less than 5 people are playing, there isn't much of a point to leave them open. Rule 9 should be obvious but it was not followed a while back. There were multiple complaints of people being added to user hurt and heals without permission. Forum game creators should not and do not have the right to include people who do not want to be included without even asking.

I would even rather completely disallow the use of users in the games. If someone new comes to the wiki and sees that, they may be afraid of being added to such a list. And it doesn't have anything to do with SpongeBob. — AMK152 (Wall • Contrib) 02:37, November 20, 2017 (UTC)
People shouldn't be afraid of being added to a list. Now, there has been some changes to the way hurt and heals work due to a proposal in October. Now, it clearly states you have to get a users' permission before adding them to anything. I don't see anything wrong with it and it can be fun sometimes. In some cases, I agree with you as users become very jealous if they don't win a users hurt & heal. So, I seem neutral in this case. (Contact • Contrib) 02:50, November 20, 2017 (UTC)
