Fred Ferdinand fried frozen feet, firstly fanning finely, finally finding Ferty funny.
Add rule: At least three words in a row must alliterate with each other.
If possible, could this new rule replace the third old rule?

This breaks the "no more than ten words" rule.

Or did I miss a meeting?

Oops. It seems Swivel missed out that rule in his 'current rules' list, so everyone else did as well.

OK, so the current rules are:
  - Post may not be more than ten words.
  - Must have at least eight words.
  - No word can contain more than 3 of the same letter.
  - At least three words in a row must alliterate with each other.
I was going to add a new rule that the letters must alternate between vowels and consonants, but it was far too hard, and not much fun. So I didn't.

Oh, my fault.

I just copied and pasted the rules, leaving out the top rule because there was an X (close secret text) next to it. This all happened for a reason, because if it didn't The Stew Boy would not have produced the deft alliteration sentence he did.

Deer, despite dirty dealing, definitely don't dial Domino's.
Add rule: At least all except one words must alliterate, if not all.
So you are only allowed to have one word that doesn't alliterate with the rest.

[BTW, in your secret tags put CURRENT RULES: as the first line so the X doesn't cause mass chaos.]

Ellen cared not about the texture, but only the taste of the cupcakes.

New Rule: You must use (and underline) a name of a hold from the Holds forum in your sentence, but it cannot be in a DROD context. Example:

I'll just use your example, there is no rule against that.

Perfection is what everybody should be aiming for, although it is impossible.
Add rule: You cannot use the same word twice in one sentence.
Edit: This means that you also cannot have 'is' and 'it's' in the same sentence either.

Perfection is its own sustenance.

...No really, it's true. Wanna fight about it?

Add Rule: No double-posting.
I actually figured this one would be implied, as forum games tend to not be very exciting when one person can just throw up a bunch of posts in a row.

Sarah's gardening equipment became lost within one half hour from the time she bought it.

ADD/MODIFY RULE: You must use the name of a color twice in your sentence. The same color can be used twice, but it is the only way you can break rule 3.

Well, the amount of blue coloured balls with red stripes is zilch, if you know what I mean...

Modify rule: You must use the name of a colour at least once in your sentence, not necessarily twice.

Bill Gates says that the people in the Russian Mafia are quaint, and do not necessarily wear teal, and that you should not slap any member of the Russian Mafia in the face while speaking gibberish.

Add Rule: You must somehow incorporate the word "abstain" or one of its forms in your sentence.

I have no idea who the Russian Mafia are, nor do I know what the word "abstain" means, nor do I know what the word "shzoop" means, therefore you should buy me a dictionary, preferrably a red one with blue spots.

A lot of rules, huh? Hard to abide by them all.
Add rule: The ratio of one-letter words to multi-letter words must be at least 1:5
(ie for every one-letter word you need to have at least 5 multi-letter words)

If I was a blue member of the Russian Mafia I would abstain from quite a few of the votes, and you should too.

- Rule: The ratio of one-letter words to multi-letter words must be at least 1:5 (This rule causes too much confusion. The post and the example are inconsistent. I am going by the example myself)
