The amount and specificity of rules knowledge that's required.

1: Questions about common interactions that could often occur in a tournament. Most players who are more familiar with the rules will probably know the answer.

2: Slightly rarer interactions that could still reasonably occur in tournament games.

3: Significantly rarer interaction that rarely, if ever, come up in real games.

4: Only the most knowledgeable rules gurus will know the answer.

The number of different cards and interactions that must be kept track of.

1: Simple questions about a specific interaction involving just a few cards. Generally easy to comprehend after a single read-though.

2: Questions about an interaction that requires many different cards, or questions that are more about keeping track of multiple objects than about a rules interaction.

3: Very complicated questions that involve a large number of objects or interactions.

The rules that are cited in the question or answer.

Put a period after the rule number if you don't want to match child rules. For example, selecting "100.6" can find a question that cites rule 100.6b, but selecting "407.4." matches only that exact rule.
