    I think its a good idea to have a reference to the official rules on the top of the forum,

    However not sure about posting the WHOLE rulebook here, because:
    - Its split into lots of posts, and when the rules change it can be tricky to maintain.
    - For example the rules recently changed (From July to September). There's 64 posts here to have to go over and see what changed
    - There are copyright issues with posting the complete rules on here; While there's no issue with posting relevant parts from the rules for discussion or for clarifying card play, posting the whole document here is problematic.

    So I am really sorry to have to delete all the posts and I appreciate your intentions and your work . I'll replace the 1st post with a link to the Wizards rules page where all the documents are to be found and sticky so that users can easily find it

    -Jared

    A forum post is probably not the best format to read the rules anyway...but yeah thanks for the effort at least now there's a link to the rules on the top

    edit: can a mod or admin move this post to the top ? some people might prefer the pdf (i know i do its searchable ^^). so they find the link and the rest below ?
    btw this is not the latest pdf verion, like Jared said it changed recently and the most recent one is http://www.wizards.com/magic/comprul...s_20090904.pdf maybe you (or a mod) can edit it so that members dont read the incorrect pdf

    Don't think its the 2010 rules since I looked in the July document and it does mention the "Battlefield" zone which is a new concept to M2010 which means the July one already had the new rules. So dont know what changed between the two maybe someone with more patience can read and compare

    That link does have a lot of useful stuff in it not just the comprehensive rules. Like for example it has a link to the set FAQs, Gatherer, DCI Judge Certification information, Constructed Formats and Banned/Restricted Lists, and more

    I would recommend bookmarking that link

    Personally I downloaded the Rules PDF and I have it on my desktop so I can refer to it whenever I need to look up some rules, though after reading this post I realized that I still had the old rules (from before M10) so I took the opportunity of downloading the latest rules

    yeah 4 pages of posts i was real impressed. but i think the pdf is the quickes way to use the comprehensiv rules because of the search funktion. the text version is useful when you need to quickly copy paste stuff for a post however. at least that how i usualy do it.

    years ago I was on the pro tour and later became a level 3 judge. But like I say until about a month ago I had been out of the game for nearly a decade.
