No cake. I do enough will power training at work.
No exercise classes. Why are you stretching under the board when there is a whole world of space you could be stretching in not under the board?

No matching, no thumbs, no drop knees or heel hooks. No massive slopey blobs.

An entrance exam which determines whether you're worthy to train on it.

Someone could do 100 moves on a Lattice but that doesn't tell you whether they'll draw foot long tick marks, brush their chalk off, confess to a dab or clipstick the second.

Perhaps this would be a good addition to the lattice test!

You're board scores and finger strength scores are exemplary, so physically you are more than capable. However we note you indicated that you have recently dabbed on a problem and tried to pretend it didn't happen, and were observed to be using excessively long tick marks. This demonstrates a lack of moral fortitude. We recommend 50 hail marys and a course of therapy with Malc.

Donkey lines, not brushing, lying/decieveing, all not cool. Clip stick whatever you want, as long as you are honest. You were probably just joking but I'm now particularly interested in trying to stop people being sniffy about stick clipping. Sorry, rant over!

Re your previous post, sounds like I need to get me down the mini works.

I was being sarcastic btw... :P

Anyway - no one has mentioned attire yet. I'll start with Lycra.

Yes, it was meant to be a joke but you are right that it didn't belong in that list.  Apologies.

It is unclear if you are for or against, or if your predilection runs to all genders ...?

I would love a system where I could walk over to my finger board, select a load to add to me like the opposite of a cable lat pull down machine and hang. No more cheese wire groin anguish or people getting pissed all the weights are with one person.

What are you all talking about? The only permissible attire is boxers and rock boots as per Jerry.
