Hey everyone. As another season approaches it's time to renew and refresh your mind with the rules of HF Boards, and particularily, HF Jets. Hank Chinaski, Holden Caulfield, Hammer Slammer, JC Numminen, YWGinYYZ and myself like to believe that the Jets board is one of the best forums on the entire site for having a respectful attitude and healthy discussion. Good job to everyone for helping make this a fun place to talk Jets Hockey! Having said that, we wanted to take this time to emphasize what this forum is about and what is expected of all its participants. It can be boiled down to one word: RESPECT. Respect for HF Jets regulars: Do not attack each other. Things can get heated, especially during losing streaks or tough times for the team. Debate your hearts out, even argue if you are passionate about your point, but keep your attacks against the post and not the poster. Flaming and trolling, personal insults will not be tolerated and infractions and threadbans will be levied if necessary. Respect for visitors: We will see people from other areas of HF Boards stop by on game days or when trades and other incidents between teams happen. Remain respectful towards our guests. If they post something that is inappropriate, use the report post feature to let us know and we will handle it asap. DO NOT respond as this can open you up to disciplinary action as well. As they say â€œdonâ€™t feed the trollâ€. Keep in mind, just because a visitor has something to say that you might not agree with, it doesnâ€™t mean they are trolling us. Respect for the players, coaches, management, and (sigh) officials: These people are absolutely open to criticism, which is perfectly acceptable. What isnâ€™t, is personal attacks on them beyond what they do in a professional sense. Any rumours of illegal or immoral activity without fully supported sources can open HF Boards and yourself up to libel. Think about what you are posting before you post. Respect for your mods: We are fans just like you. We have opinions and you are welcome and encouraged to debate our thoughts on the Jets and NHL hockey in general. What isnâ€™t up for public debate are our decisions wrt to the administration of the rules here. If you have a problem with what weâ€™ve done or a decision that we have made, send us a PM for an explanation or if you are more comfortable, you can PM another mod or send an email to [email protected]. We do not get paid to do this, we do it because we love this forum and want it to be a great place to talk about our favorite team. One last thought that might help you make the right decision about posting. Before you hit the post button, read your post again as if the subjects you are talking about in your post are friends or family members. There is room on these boards for respect, even in the most heated debates. If you are unsure of the site rules other than what is mentioned above, you can read the site rules Remember, ignorance of the rules is not an excuse to break them. Lets have a great season enjoying talking everything Jets!! Thanks! Your HF Jets moderator team.
