What is the Rat Code?
The original Rat's Code came in 1997, but since then has not been updated at all, so I decided (mainly because of my interest in rats, and others wanting the Code to be updated in many ways) to have a go at the code, and bring in up to date.
The idea behind the Rat Code
is to show other rat lovers (whether they own rats or not) who you are,
what you do, what you are interested in, who your rats are, and what
they are like.
The original owner of the
Rat Code decided not to include a section for your individual rats for
good reasons as although for people with only a few rats (I have calculated
that with 7 rats the code won't be too long) will not have a problem
with creating the code, but people with a lot of rats (I know people
with 30 rats!) will have a code that is enormous, and although there
is no real restriction on signature length in emails and newsgroups
(Kibo's signature was once 350 lines long) people are not too friendly
about others with huge signatures, although there really is nothing
to complain about IMHO, bandwidth being not such a valuable commodity
The Rat Code is totally community based, without people wanting a code there would be no need for a code, so if you wish to see the code develop and grow please send any suggestions or comments to my email address firstname.lastname@example.org . Thanks for looking.
