I want a challenge in-game. I don't want to have to self-enforce a page of rules like the ones you linked.
When players start having to make up their own rules because the core game mechanics fail then you know something isn't right.
Again, I am confused why you are so against it. You actually play the mode, and if it were properly supported your own game experience would be better.
No, you want blizzard to hold your hand and make sure you dot your i's, cross your t's. Lame. Make your own game.
Self found is a mode challenged, by your self. If you cannot setup you're own rules to play by in any game, whether its to challenge yourself or just to play it different (as long as its not impacting other gamers) then what's the point?
Take it this way.
When you play pac-man. Did you always play the same pattern, did you try playing clockwise, or counter clockwise, even if it didn't work? Or lets go with need for speed. Did you ever try using only the worst car to see if you can beat the game?
Hmm. Where did the game come along and kick in and say. Hey! You are not following your rules?
See my point?
If you can't honestly play self found on your own without the assistance of blizzard to make sure its legit for you, then you have the WRONG IDEA about playing self found at all.
Those wanting modes fall into 2 categories:
They hate the AH< either cause they can't afford to use it, or think its cheating.
They want recognition for playing a character with gear picked up from the environment only, no trading or AH bought gear.
That's it. Those are the primary reasons for the mode. Any other reason falls directly into being able to play it NOW, and not needing a mode at all.
Thanks for listening, game on.
