Placement of verb

In the examples, 'dire' goes after the two negations while 'faire' and 'aller' goes before them. What's the rule here?

Bonjour Joakim ! Here it's not about the verbs, but about the tenses they're conjugated at. Indeed, "dire" is in Le Passé Composé, so the second part of the negation is between the auxiliary and the past participle, whereas with simple tenses, it's just after the conjugated verb. You can have a look at these related lessons: Using 'ne ... pas' with compound tenses (negation) Using ne ... pas with simple tenses (negation) I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !
