Just so you guys know, the "Rules" button in the header bar (between "Style" and "FAQ") directs to a thread with a huge "THIS IS AN OUTDATED THREAD" message and links to the new one. That might be why you need the message in question in said old thread. Might be best to update it to the new one if you can, in case someone doesn't see that big message (that sadly wouldn't surprise me).
Thought you'd want to know, so I'm just pointing it out to you!
Could you specify which style you're using? On the one I'm using mine links directly to the new rules thread. I assume one of the styles customized the header bar, so it's linked directly to a thread and an admin needs to go change the link themselves once they know which it is. :)
Nah it's not your fault, most of them use the default stylesheets, which means that when something is changed they all change automatically. Only a few actually customize the themes to that extent, so calling out when one of the customized themes is out of date is always a positive haha.
