The current top 20 Unofficial Ingress Rules at - these have been submitted and voted into these positions by players. Feel free to contribute.

Rule #1 - GPS Spoofing
GPS spoofing is the most destructive form of cheating in the game. Anyone caught doing this should be reported to Niantic and banned from the game.

Rule #2 - That Portal Is Not Yours!
A portal is never YOUR portal, you may hold it, you may care for it, but it's never yours. Don't get upset when another player wishes to spend time with that portal too.

Rule #3 - This Is Not Pokemon GO
Enough said.

Rule #4 - Accounts
One IGN. One team. One device. One person. It is in the ToS we all agreed to when starting.

Rule #5 - The Tell Tale Guardian
If you have a guardian portal over 20 days old, you do not speak of said portal or even think about it. You nonchalantly recharge it, paying it not special attention. Doing otherwise is guaranteed to result in losing it.

Rule #6 - Opposition Team Meet-ups
If you become aware that agents from the opposing team are having a gathering, do all that you can to crash said event. If your team is having the gathering, do not begrudge opposing team crashers. It is your own fault for not being stealthy enough.

Rule #7 - The Sojourner Paradox
The Sojourner badge is both the easiest and hardest badge to get. No one can stop you from getting it but your own laziness.

Rule #8 - Get the F#%K Over It
If you lose your guardian at 89 days GTFOI! If you lose your guardian at 149 days GTFOI! Forget to hack for a day GTFOI! Someone takes down your megafield within 5 minutes of it going up GTFOI! You're a secret agent you don't have time to cry about it, congratulate the other team on their guardian hunting skills because, you've already Gotten The F#%K Over It. The ONLY Exception to this rule is when your phone is dropped and smashed beyond repair, at which point you can complain to all your fellow faction members and they must provide sympathy.

Rule #9 - Play Socially
Ingress can be at its best when played socially. You are encouraged to reach out and connect with other agents. However, when planning to meet a stranger for the first time, do so in a safe setting. Don't be stupid.

Rule #10 - Directions
Portals should be used when giving directions to other agents, but remember that non-agents will not understand such directions.

Rule #11 - Detours
A detour is limited to no more than 5 hours! Getting milk can lead to a detour, but you are expected back home within the 5 hour limit. Anything longer than 5 hours is a planned mission. Rule #47 (Missions)

Rule #12 - If You Are Out Playing In Bad Weather, It Means You Are A Badass.
Your Badassness is strictly limited to the last bad weather you ingressed in, never your worst weather. This rule is only superseded when you have ventured outside into hurricane conditions to take down a field that covers your country, state or city.

Rule #13 - Out of Area Experiences.
When travelling or visiting a new area, always say HI, in faction COMMS to the locals. If you are visiting an area with fewer agents and portals than your usual haunts, it is courteous to share capsules of level 8 gear and to upgrade as many portals as possible. If you are from a remote area, it is courteous to share extra keys of your most remote and hard to access portals.

Rule #14 - One More Portal
There is always one more portal to destroy, link, field, or capture. You must accept this fact. You can and should spend as much time as possible getting one more portal!

Rule #15 - Farm Location
Farms are decided not by the proximity to dense portals groups, but by how much food and hop-based beverage can be consumed whilst still maintaining range to as many portals as possible.

Rule #16 - The Game Paradox
The biggest question that plagues the minds of both ADA and Jarvis: after 90 days are you playing the game, or is the game playing you?

Rule #17 - The New Level 1
Since the introduction of levels 9 - 16, level 8 will forever be known as the new level 1.

Rule #18 - Couch And Desk Portals
If a player from your team has a home or work portal it is your responsibility to detour as often as possible to upgrade this portal, just as it is their responsibility to give you gear as often as you ask for it. If you know of a couch or desk portal used by the opposing team then it's your responsibility to detour and pineapple Rule #33 (The Pineapple/Campfire) the portal before work for work portals or after work for home portals as often as possible.

Rule #19 - Douche Links
Douche links can be both highly annoying and highly amusing, depending on context. Douche links that just block an area from being properly fielded, but are otherwise uninteresting, can be annoying. Douche links that cut through the heart of area that normally has no hope of working, bringing both teams fields to a standstill, can be amusing.

Rule #20 - Video Calls in Hangouts - it's your shout!
Any player interrupting a group chat in Hangouts by initiating a video call, either by accident or deliberately will be obliged to buy one round of drinks at the next faction meet.
