    Posting Rules and Regulations

    1. No swearing in threads, and all profanity must be completely starred out (i.e. "****"). The general rule of thumb is: "if you have any doubt, star it out." Generally, as long as you use common-sense you shouldn't ever run into a problem with swearing. Please see this thread for further details: Official Profanity and Disallowed Words List

    2. No spamming threads. If have nothing to contribute with your post, please find another thread.

    3. No excessive thread bumping. Thread bumping is defined as posting in a dead or rarely used thread in order to bring it back to the top of the list. Some bumping is normal as new information for discussion may have arisen, but if there's nothing new to contribute it will be considered spamming.

    4. No posting on behalf of someone who's banned. The point of being banned is that the user is no longer a part of this online forum community and is no longer allowed to interact here. Please note: Contacting the JC staff for information on the ban is perfectly fine, either for the banned user or someone on their behalf but on the other hand, the staff member in question is under no obligation to provide any information to anyone except the banned user.

    5. No making threads that give glory to banned people. It's not a violation to mention them in passing but no threads that focus on them. (e.g. "Ah, YodaOfTheSith, I miss him so!" "or Hey, it's YodaOfTheSith's birthday!").

    6. Baiting or intentionally stirring up other users isn't allowed. Debates are fine, but argue with the point, not the person. Threads with no purpose other than flaming, subtle or otherwise, will be closed It's important to remember, however, that a person disagreeing with your opinion is *not* trolling. Try to keep it civil even if you're sure the other person is wrong.

    7. No troll/flame sock posting. Gimmick or humor sock posting is okay, but evil sock posting (ban circumvention, flaming someone "anonymously," etc.) is not allowed. Please note, this also includes creating socks to flame yourself as well as others. Any inappropriate sock usage can lead to a ban on both the sock and the main user account.

    8. Do not attempt to correct a poster as if you were a Moderator. Being helpful is fine and community is encouraged, but if you have a problem with a post, contact a Moderator via PM rather than attempting to "fix" the situation yourself.

    9. The rules for signatures are as follows: Automatic signatures (edited from here) has a 250 character limit, just like it says when you enter it. Minor linking is allowed by typing out the URL, but it counts towards the character limit. Manual signatures are allowed, but the goal is for signatures that want a little bit or color or pizzazz (or exceeding 250 characters by a *LITTLE* bit) and not for huge diatribes or paragraphs. The use of images isn't allowed for signatures. Signatures must also follow the general rules and guidelines as posts do.

    10. Please do not use the Snowboards [image=] feature to direct-link to any photos that aren't a) hosted on your own storage or b) from a major site (, or c) from another site that's said it's okay (e.g. a dedicated picture site). Bandwidth leeching can happen, so please respect the smaller sites by linking via the [link=] feature rather than the [image=] feature of Snowboards. Direct linking URL's are always fine, so long as they conform with the other rules of the Jedi Council. (NOTE: Online comic sites [e.g. Dilbert, Penny Arcade, etc.] prefer links to the whole comic page, rather than just the comic itself.) And, as always, please remember that you are responsible for your own image linkings if the pics get switched on you. The JC Administration reserves the right to remove image links upon request from the owner of a linked site.

    11. You are not allowed to post another user's visual or auditory information (e.g. image, voice,
