If you are a fan of baseball, you probably have heard whispers of "the unwritten rules". They are set of guidelines that players, managers, announcers, and even fans are expected to follow. I call them guidelines because they can not be found in any official rule book. Thus why they are referred to as "the unwritten rules".
It looks like someone put together a condensed list on Wikipedia if you want to take the time to check it out.
The Unwritten Rules
If you read the Wiki, you might have noticed the part at the end about bat flips. Personally, I don't like them. I think it is trashy. Act like you've been there before, even if it is your first, longest, or best home run.
Despite what you might think, this post isn't really about baseball.
I started thinking last week after reading a story about a baseball player who broke one of the unwritten rules, and seeing a "retaliation post" from someone who got flagged on Hive, that Hive could use its own set of unwritten rules.
So here we are. I am going to rely on the community to provide what they feel are the unwritten rules of Hive. Then I will compile those into a new post and share them with the community in a condensed form.
I'll get us started:

Rules for the "Unwritten Rules of Hive"
- Leave a comment on this post with your unwritten rule
- Feel free to include a rant if you want, but the actual rule itself needs to be well defined and clearly visible so I can integrate it into the final post
- This isn't a place to call out other Hive users, we are all adults, you can present your submission without putting someone on blast.
- If you do leave a comment, please consider sharing this post so we can get as many submissions as possible. I want to have a pretty comprehensive list by next week when I write the final post.
Pretty simple right? As Hive continues to grow, it is going to be inevitable that new people join the platform and either knowingly or unknowingly break one of these rules.
Having a compiled list could give us a direction to point new users so they hopefully don't commit one of these faux pas and end up in a really bad position or turned off from the platform.
Let's get as much participation on this as we can. I have a lot of faith we are going to have a really comprehensive and helpful list by the time we are finished.
