    [ol]
    [li]Discuss the films, not the fans who post here. If your comment is directed at a user or a group of users, just don't post it. It could lead to waters that are better left unsailed. Treat your fellow fans with respect, even if you disagree vehemently with them.[/li]
    [li]Be considerate of your fellow posters, especially the new folks on the block. You don't know the repercussions of your actions, so make sure that all of your actions are good ones.[/li]
    [li]Stop and think before you hit the "post" button. Try to make sure you are adding to the conversation in a positive manner, as well as maintaining your opinion and keeping within the Terms Of Service. Make sure that your post is germaine and on-topic.[/li]
    [li]Contact a SFF moderator if you see a thread which you feel is inappropriate - posting "this should be locked!" does nothing to solve the problem, and can actually worsen the situation in some cases. Make a calm, relevant Private Message to a SFF forum moderator, outlining the problem and giving a link to the thread in question. [/li]
    [li]Contact one of the SFF moderators, or any of the admins, if you have a problem, question or concern. [/li]
    [li]Have fun while interacting and getting acquainted with your fellow Science Fiction and Fantasy fans! [/li]
    [/ol]

    [ul]
    [li]Don't spam: filling the forums with unnecessary or irrelevant posts.[/li]
    [li]Don't flame: insulting any other JC member or antagonizing another member. [/li]
    [li]Don't troll: posting with a hostile intent or an intent to elicit a negative response from users.[/li]
    [li]Don't start redundant threads. Please check the first five pages of the forum before you start a new topic. Your thread may very well already exist.[/li]

    <center><font face="arial" size="3"><b><u>Spoiler Policy</u></b></font></center>
    [ol]
    <li> Movies: Each upcoming Sci-Fi movie will contain two different, distinct threads. One that encompasses conversation, where spoilers are allowed. And one that encompasses conversation, where spoilers are not allowed. Two weeks after the official release date in the US, the non-spoiler thread relating to the movie will be closed and all conversation will be moved to the other thread. No third spoiler thread will be created to discuss a specific point of a movie. All spoiler conversation will be asked to remain in the general spoiler conversation thread. However, a third thread can be created discussing a specific point/event in a movie as long as it does not discuss spoilers. If you are unsure whether or not something is considered a spoiler, please contact a Forum Moderator before making such a thread.

    <li> TV: Any currently running Sci-Fi Shows will have two different, distinct threads. One that encompasses conversation, where spoilers are allowed. And one that encompasses conversation, where spoilers are not allowed. No third spoiler thread will be created to discuss a specific point of the T.V. shows. All spoiler conversation will be asked to remain in the general spoiler conversation thread. However, a third thread can be created discussing a specific point/event in a T.V. show as long as it does not discuss spoilers. If you are unsure whether or not something is considered a spoiler, please contact a Forum Moderator before making such a thread. Spoilers are considered to be anything within the first 72 hours of an aired episode. Anything after 72 hours is considered a non-spoiler. Any rumors, speculation or information for upcoming episodes are considered spoilers and should be taken to the designated spoiler thread for that T.V. show.[/ol]
