I'm just curious if anyone has a copy of the rules. Something in writing. @Tinkeringbell called them "community guidelines."
In general, information about the site, how it works, and how to use it can be found in the help center. There are a number of different pages there that are helpful for newer users. Some are generic and apply to all Stack Exchange sites; others are slightly different and modified for different sites (for instance, we've edited this page about asking questions).
Tinkeringbell, in their edit summary for revision 8 of one of your questions, was pointing you to this meta post. Stack Exchange lets you write answers to your own questions if you've figured them out; this helps future users who see the question, because your solution is now available to them. What we've decided on IPS - and what is a policy on various other Stack Exchange sites -is that if you come up with a solution that you've used, you should write it as an answer to your question, rather than add it in along with the rest of the question text. This lets people vote on it.
UPDATE This post was closed at the whim of the users listed below, but given it's popularity, I wanted to give an update.
which was partially a jab at the folks who closed the question - and not on a whim. That violates the Be Nice policy, which is another reason to remove that particular sentence (in addition to the fact that the question shouldn't contain a solution that you eventually came up with).
