If any user breaks any of these rules in any shape or form, they are subject to the following actions:

A. Closing of topic
B. Deleting of topic
C. Edit of topic
D. Restricted access to the "Holding Cell"
E. Account deletion and banning.

If your topic or post is missing, it was probably deleted for a violation of the Forum RULES.

The length of your disciplinary action will be dependent upon several items. If you have had problems with similar infractions, the action taken against you will be more severe than that of a first time offender. The administration reserves the right to discipline a user in whatever manner necessary to maintain peace and harmony on the board.

5. [The "HOLDING CELL"] - A Member being banned will only have access to this forum and will remain here until they can prove worthy of returning to the main forums. Access will be restricted to this area and if the member would like to apply for reinstatement must prove themselves in this area first. This member will have full posting priviledges in the "Holding Cell".

6. [Conclusion]

The entire reason this board was made was to allow you to share your feelings about the best team in the NFL - The New York Jets, with other like-minded people. It was not created to be a BASHFEST for users. If you act like a mature person, you will be treated as one. If you act like a child, you will also be treated that way. New york JETS # 1 fan site
