MJJCollectors.com Rules & Conduct

Please read and review the following Forum Rules before posting to MJJCollectors.com. Failure to comply with these rules could result in warnings and/or suspensions of your MJJCollectors.com membership privileges.

Personal Conduct:

1) Remember Michael’s Mantra…do it with L-O-V-E. We will not tolerate hateful or derogatory attacks on other MJJCollectors.com members in any way. Offensive posts will be removed, and the offending member will be warned and/or banned depending on the severity of the infringement.

2) Also remember Aretha’s Mantra…R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Please respect one another's opinions, even if you don’t agree with them. We do not censor opinions or ideas on our forums but we do take action against posts and/or topics that could cause unrest in the community beyond a civil and polite disagreement.

3) MJJCollectors.com will NOT tolerate bullying, trolling, or other abusive conduct on this web site. This includes but is not limited to racial, ethnic, religious, sexual preference, or gender based insults or comments.

4) Use of profanity or sexually explicit terms in usernames, posts, signatures or anything else on this web site will not be tolerated. We have word filters in place for the most vulgar terms. Circumventing those word filters through use of tactics like “T*H*I*S” will result in punitive action and possible suspension.

Posting Guidelines:

These guidelines apply to any and all posts submitted by you, including but not limited to: forum posts, private messages, chats, reviews/comments, and blogs.

1) If you are posting news or any other content that originates from another web site or forum, please give credit to the original source, and a link to the article, if it is known. Likewise, if you are posting news or content derived from MJJCollectors.com, please give appropriate credit and a link back to our site.

2) When starting a new topic, please make sure to post in the correct forum. Failure to do so will result in moving of your thread to the correct forum, or deletion of it. If you are unsure whether a new topic may be unacceptable to MJJCollectors.com posting guidelines, please PM a moderator first for advice before you post.

3) MJJCollectors.com recognizes that many of our members are from non-English speaking countries and territories. However, please keep your posts in proper and acceptable English.

4) Please refrain from “double posting” unless absolutely necessary. If you would like to add something to your previous post, simply edit it. 

5) Unnecessary bumping of topics is considered “spamming.” Please refrain from bumping old threads unless you have something newsworthy or valuable to add.

6) Using ALL CAPITALS throughout your posts is discouraged. Please use proper “Sentence case”, and capitals for emphasis, if and only where it is appropriate.

7) Please refrain from using the public forums for private discussions with other members. Instead, “PM” those members directly. 

8) We encourage playful, positive, and light-hearted banter amongst our members. However, please do not stray too far from the topic at hand. We may delete individual posts that could ruin a good topic thread.

9) Your signatures may contain images, but may not exceed the forum’s default width. Please compress the images in your signatures, to allow our pages acceptable load times. If your signature is larger than the allotted size given or deemed unacceptable by our staff, an MJJCollectors.com moderator will request you resize or change your image. Failure to properly comply with a moderator's request to adjust your signature will result in removal of the signature.

10) Moderators do not instantly see any particular post on our site, so please help us “self police” our site. If you recognize that a topic is posted in the wrong forum, or if you notice a post you believe to be in violation of our guidelines, then please use the “Report” feature located in the lower left side of that post. Please do NOT respond publicly to the member. MJJCollectors.com will address the issue, and take whatever action we deem appropriate.

11) Any impersonation of a user from these forums, in any mode of communication, is strictly prohibited and will result in a banning.

12) If a moderator closes, moves or deletes your thread/post for any reason, please respect their decision, and do not argue with moderators or staff publicly. If you have an issue concerning our policies or staff, please use a personal contact method such as a private message or email to a moderator or staff member. You can find a current list of our staff on the Site Credits page of this web site. Unresolved complaints with an MJJCollectors.com staff member or moderator can be addressed to one of the site owners by sending an email to admin@mjjcollectors.com.

And the most important rule of all... HAVE FUN!! 

Third Party Transactions:

Dealings or transactions by and between our members and any of these third party entities are AT YOUR OWN RISK. MJJCollectors.com does not warranty in any way transactions engaged by and between third parties on this web site. Specifically, MJJCollectors.com is NOT RESPONSIBLE for any loss or damage you incur as a result of transactions with other members or sellers on our web site.    

Use Of Our Content:

MJPC grants members permission to download and store images and other public content for your own personal and non-commercial use. We allow members to post content originating from our web site IF PROPER CREDIT IS PROVIDED (via a link to our web site, www.MJJCollectors.com).  We also allow use of the images originating from our site but members may NOT remove, cover, or crop our watermark in any way.   Under NO circumstances is content from our web site to be sold for profit. Violation of these terms could result in immediate and permanent suspension of your membership, as well as legal remedies, as appropriate.

Enforcement Procedures:

MJJCollectors.com reserves the right to edit or remove any content on these forums that we deem inappropriate with or without notice. We also reserve the right to ban any member who violates our guidelines or disrupts our community. We will be fair and in most cases provide warning (usually via private message). We also take into account a member’s prior track record in making our final determination, including any previous warnings issued to that member. 

MJJCollectors.com has full liberty to choose its members, and we may accept or reject any member signups, remove or suspend any member from our site, grant and revoke any privileges to members within the site without warning, prior notice or giving any reason anytime we find appropriate. “VIP” members who are banned due to breech of MJJCollectors.com’s Terms Of Service are not entitled to whole or partial refunds of their membership dues.

The reasons behind the banning of a member may not be discussed publicly on this board.  MJJCollectors.com will not tolerate members giving out their account details to a banned member in order for them to access our web site. Such an act will result in a permanent suspension without prior warning.

If you feel you have been treated unfairly, you may submit an appeal to admin@mjjcollectors.com. You will be notified if any changes are made to your membership status or if you will ever be reinstated. All decisions made in this process are final.
