If your text cannot be read in either you may be asked to change it to where it can be readable.

    5. No Advertising.

    ~No referral links or advertising other anime streaming sites or communities. This includes advertising other anime sites (or any movie/tv streaming sites that has anime), forums, social media pages and chats. The exception to this rule is if it is only a verified JAN or JustDubs.org event or chat. However, talking about new releases or recently acquired series from an official publication or dubbing studio is allowed when used in the context of who acquired or currently holds the rights (legally) to a manga or English dubbed anime.
    ~If our site is currently down/ under maintenance/ or our video host is not working and others are asking for an alternative site, Explain that its usually fixed within an hour (anything longer we will make an announcement) and that the are free to google another source, but that is the ONLY thing that is allowed.

    6. Censorship.
    ~While the chat is rated MA, Keep in mind the MA is along the lines of whats accepted on basic TV shows. The chat can be unsuitable for anyone under age 17. The chat may also contain one or more of the following: crude indecent language, discussion of sexual situations, drugs, or mention of graphic violence. However there will still be some censorship. The following is not allowed
    1) Nudity of any kind or links to pornographic images/ sites. (this includes bodily fluids).
    2) there is still some mild word censorship, the censors are already placed please do not try to bypass the censor or you will be warned. Even tho the chat is MA please do not abuse swearing, if a staff member feels you are abusing a specific swear word you may be asked to stop, continuing could result in warning and possible ban.
    3) while sexual situations is allowed to be discussed, we do not allow discussions of rape, molestation etc of any kind.
    4) No racists, sexual or discriminatory remarks are allowed towards another user at anytime
    5) Gore of any kind is not allowed

    7. No impersonating others.
    ~Users will be immediately banned for impersonating other users by creating and/or using a account with a name clearly intended to impersonate, mock, or antagonize another user, or otherwise falsely claim to be another member.

    8. No Spoilers.
    ~This includes but is not limited to anime, manga, movies, TV shows, video games and other forums of media.

    ~Please speak English at all times. This chat is for an English dubbed anime website.

    12. Multiple Accounts: We do not allow the use of multiple accounts in our chat. We only allow one user name per user. If you have a user account you are currently using and would like to change it to a different account you have, please contact an admin or a mod with your new user name you plan to use, so we can update fellow staff of the changes. Please do not abuse the use of name changing and make it a daily/ weekly thing, try to stick to one account and one account only. Staff will keep track as to how often a user changes their name in a certain time frame via staff chat logs, if it becomes an regular thing or an issue, we will have to result back to only allowing user name changes for reasons of harassment etc. If you are caught using more than one account in our chat , or caught continually flipping from one account to the next, without notifying a staff member of the change, you will be warned and could result in ban if continued infractions occur.

    Note: all staff are required to follow a 3 step warning process and then report it on our site in a section specifically for staff members. Meaning you will be given 3 warnings before you are banned. There will be however situations where they don't have to use the 3 step warning before banning. Situations like posting links to porn and being asked to stop but continue to re-link the site, anything involving sexual content with children are grounds for immediate ban.

    NOTE: If you were banned and feel you were wrongfully banned you can contact the admins via PM on the chat or on the forum and they will review your case and speak with you on the matter. Admins listed above


    Terms Violations
    Messages that violate the TOS will be deleted and additional penalties may be applied at the moderator's discretion.

Messages may be removed at any time and for any reason at the sole discretion of Just Anime Network and its designated moderators. User accounts may be warned, suspended, or permanently banned at any time and for any reason at the sole discretion of Just Anime Network and its designated moderators. All determinations of what is "acceptable" and "unacceptable" content will be determined solely by Just Anime Network. You agree that the decision of the moderators and administrators is final, and you may not legally contest their rulings.

    Intentional, repeated, or severe violations are cause for the banning of your account.
