Soap and water are your friends!

The 6-2-1 rule is a convention guideline whose history is lost in the mist of science fiction fandom's past. The rule was re-introduced to many in the furry fandom by 2 the Ranting Gryphon and Uncle Kage, who highlighted it during the "Your First Furry Con" panels that they have run since 2004.

The rule mandates the following:

  • 6 hours of sleep per night.
  • 2 meals per day.
  • 1 shower per day.

These numbers are just minimums; the intention is that people should feel free to exceed those numbers. The third part of the rule is to prevent con funk.

Parodies

At Anthrocon 2007, the Dorsai Irregulars proposed a new variation of this rule:[1]

  • 6 miles walked per day.
  • 2 snacks per day.
  • 1 nap per day.
