Rules & Guidelines

Dear Members,

Welcome to Michael Joseph Jackson Ultimate or MJJU for short. We are a friendly community that has been set up to honor the legacy of the man himself.

Why are we here?

This is quite simple really; we are all here because we share the same love and passion for the man that is Michael Joseph Jackson.

We want to celebrate the life and work of a man who gave so much to humanity, that his philanthropy was honoured in the Millennium Issue of the “Guinness Book Of Records” which lists Michael as the “ Most Charities Supported By A Pop Star."

We also hold a great amount of respect for not only Michael, but those he held dear to his heart - his family and to his extended family - his millions of fans all around the world.

Here at MJJU we want to keep Michael's spirit alive within the fan community by:-

- celebrating his wonderful heart and continuing his philanthropy work. All donations that we receive from members will be pledged to the charities supported by Michael.

- celebrating his work whether it be his music, short films or poetry.

- creating an atmosphere where active discussions are encouraged.

- encouraging the sharing of pictures, creative graphics and works of fan fiction and poetry.

- and last but not least, creating a loving, supportive home for all of Michael's fans for many years to come.

What do we expect from our members?

Above all, as Aretha put it so eloquently "R.E.S.P.E.C.T!" It takes nothing to be polite, kind and respectful of other people's feelings and we expect this from all of our members.

We will not tolerate the following:

1. The use of derogatory words such as Wack* Jack* will NOT be tolerated nor will any racist or derogatory remarks regarding someone's religion, race, nationality or sexual orientation.

2. Remember why we are here - for Michael. Therefore, any derogatory remarks made against Michael, his children or his family will result in warnings being issued.

2. If you have any issues with other members, handle it in private and not openly on our forum. If you feel like you need to talk to a member of the team regarding posts of an offensive nature then please do so via PM (private message).

3. If you have any issues with MJJU specifically, again please speak to a member of the team via PM. We will not tolerate members who decide to rant about the board in our public forum.

4. We will not tolerate the bashing of any other MJ Forums here at MJJU. As Michael put it, "It's all for L.O.V.E." If you have problems with another site take it up with them, do not use this forum as a sounding board.
