Portals can't be placed on moving surfaces.

Moving relative to what?
Every single surface on earth is a moving surface because of earth's movement through space.

Don't do this, please. There's always ONE person who just has to misunderstand the situation and state what everyone already knows: Portals cannot be placed on moving surfaces. This is a hypothetical scenario. If you want to nitpick, you could also argue that portals aren't real.

Excuse me..?

No, you misunderstand me, sir. I understand the situation. It's troll physics(hence the troll picture above). It's just the situation of the "Closing portal walls" couldn't be, because of the way the game was designed for portals cannot be placed on moving surfaces. At least in the case of Portal One, I may add. Anytime a portal was placed on a surface, and said surface moved, the portal would vanish. Therefore, in the image above, "Will you survive? If yes, where will you go?" would not even matter. The answer is, "No you will not survive." Given that the portals would vanish, and you'd ultimately be squished between two platforms.

Sorry for seeming serious! I know it was a joke~

And also, picture very much unrelated.

THIS IS TRUE AND BEFORE  ANY ONE GIVES ME THAT 						********					 ABOUT MOVING PORTALS IN PORTAL 2...   
   
the portals that move in portal 2, are not moving to the direction that the portal is facing   
   
in portal 2 you shoot a portal at the ceiling so you could launch yourself up but the launch pad doesn't launch you high enough so glados helps you and lowers the ceiling. because the surface is now moving to the same direction that the portal is facing, your portal disappears and you have to place it again.   
   
in the level where you must use the lasers to cut the pipes, the surface is moving along the portals x-axis, not Y so the portal doesnt disappear

In the entire game, there is only one moment where portals can actually move, and you've already pointed that out. Don't you think it's unsubstantiated though to draw conclusions only from that? I'm 99% sure the portals were just scripted in that case.

there's no reason for us not to believe that portals have some "laws of movement"

there have been demonstrations where portals haven't been able to move
and there's been a demonstration whee a portal has been able to move

so we can quite easily draw a conclusion that a portal can move, but only when the surface isn't rotating, moving diagonally or moving towards/away from the direction the portal is facing.

You're taking the game WAY too seriously. There have been exactly two demonstrations, and the chances are that they have just been scripted in without any deeper thought from the devs. Can you just please accept that this is a hypothethical scenario and that everyone knows that portals in the game cannot move.
There is no point getting pissed off over the internet over this.

sorry, I just like over analyzing things   
   
I just feel like the people over at valve are smart enough to actually plan these things out

I think they didn't expect someone to try and make exact rules for movement of portals.

your right side will just get slammed into your right side and because there is no space without going through the other portal you will jjst slam into yourself until you are nothing more than particles, i think
