Jets Insider Message Board Rules/Terms of Service

The Jets Insider message boards (JI) are a public forum and registration is free! While we encourage open debate and discussion we do insist that you abide by the few basic rules and policies listed below as well as any rules that are expressly implied by a member of our Moderator team.

Use of the JI community forums is a privilege and not a right. The privilege of using the message boards may be revoked at any time and without notice. It is completely at the sole discretion of the JI moderator team.


Should you have any questions or concerns regarding the rule set listed below do not hesitate to contact any JI moderator team via e-mail (mail@jetsinsider.com ) or Private Message (PM).

Scan the board before posting!

The JI forums are very active and breaking news is usually posted within minutes of it's release. Please take the time to scan the board before posting to make sure your topic is not already there. Duplicate threads clog the board and will be deleted.


Personal Attacks

Personal attacks and name calling of any kind will not be tolerated on the JI Boards. Open debate is obviously welcomed and will be encouraged. Please debate somebodyís point of view in a respectful, non-confrontational manner.

Trolling

Starting threads with the sole purpose of eliciting a negative response from a poster or a group of posters is not allowed. Fans from other teams are obviously welcomed as valued members of our community. Users that participate on the board with the sole purpose of eliciting negative responses from the community will be dealt with accordingly.

Profanity/Vulgarity/Explicit Content

The use of profanity is strictly prohibited. Please be considerate of our entire user base when constructing your posts. We have had many instances in the past where a poster has contacted a member of our staff regarding posts and threads laden with profanity and vulgarity. This behavior will not be tolerated. By agreeing to our terms of service you warrant that you will not post any messages or words that are inappropriate, obscene, vulgar, sexually-oriented, religious, racially offensive, hateful, threatening, or otherwise violative of any laws. Violators will be dealt with accordingly. In addition, any attempt to circumvent the profanity filter will be treated as if the poster stated the offensive word.

Be aware, there are minors that frequent Jets Insider.com so please try to keep the board environment comfortable for users of all ages.

Spam Ė Services

Using the JI forums as a means to promote an outside website/product/service without written consent of the site owner via email or private message is prohibited. Obviously this rule does not apply to a member in good standing telling the community about some new website or product that they recommend. This is geared strictly to people who come to the site with the sole purpose of generating traffic to their site/product/service. Violators of this rule risk permanent banishment from the site.

Avatars

Avatars are permitted for upload as long as they do not exceed height and width of (150X150) pixels.

Signature Pictures

Users are permitted to add signature pictures to their account as long as they are hosted by an outside server. You are allowed to add more than one picture as long as overall height does not exceed 250 pixels and overall width does not exceed 750 pixels. Signature pictures must be in good taste. Any vulgar or inappropriate sig pics will be removed and the user risks temporary or permanent banishment from the forums.


Multiple Accounts/Circumventing a Ban

Multiple accounts are not allowed. If itís found that you have created multiple accounts you risk permanent banning of all accounts.

If you are banned for any reason it is not acceptable to create a new account to continue posting. Users who do so will have the new account deleted and will risk permanent banishment of the original account as well as all IP addresses associated with these accounts permanently banned.

Questionable Content

There can be certain situations where content posted by a user does not break a clearly stated rule. It is up to the discretion of the moderators to determine if the post or material is acceptable. If you feel you have content that may be questionable, itís highly suggested that you confer with a moderator before posting it.

Off-Topic Posts

Please attempt to create relative-interesting subjects when starting off-topic threads. Also, please attempt to post it in the appropriate forum. Moderators have full authority to move posts and or threads to different forums as they deem appropriate.

Plagiarism

Users agree to give proper credit to the author or creator of any materials/articles that are posted on the Jets Insider forums. We also ask that if you take anything from another web publication, you include the link it in your post. Attempting to pass the work of another person as your own will be dealt with accordingly.

JI is a very active community and as such it is very difficult to monitor EVERY post. Please remember that if a poster was not disciplined in the past for a comment does not necessarily mean that you will not get disciplined. It just means that we missed a post.

The judgment of an individual moderator is in most cases final. If you feel that you were banned without just cause please forward your request for review to a moderator. In the end, the owners of Jets Insider.com reserve the right to remove, edit, move, close any thread or ban any user for any reason deemed appropriate.

The owners also reserve the right to update these rules as deemed necessary.
