GENERAL

  1. Any obstructive behavior can be reason for the Moderators to intervene. Anything at all, at their behest and with or without relevant reasons given. This includes but is not limited to any of the rules below. An exhaustive list of how to be obstructive and generally an asshole is impossible to write.
  2. There is no “infraction” or “warnings” system. If your account shows bad conduct the Moderators will review the behavior and decide to either;
    1. send a textual warning in the form of an email or PM and flag your profile as being warned.
    2. suspend your account temporarily.
    3. suspend your account permanently.

USER CONTENT

  1. No trolling, flaming, insulting or swearing at other members.
  2. No discriminatory, racist or derogatory remarks.
  3. No religious or political content unless it strictly pertains to the topic of fiction (e.g. it is a theme in an anime).
  4. No sexually oriented content or pictures (including porn and hentai).
  5. No spamming or phishing.
  6. No threats or harassment, also not jokingly.
  7. No soliciting, begging, auctioning, selling, advertising or referring.
  8. Do not post in all CAPITAL letters.

  16. Use only English in discussions.

REPORTS

  1. Use the Report function only to notify the Moderators of posts or comments of which you are suspicious. Your suspicion must be objective and without reasonable doubt. Reporting posts with ambiguous messages like “is this allowed?” or “shitpost confirmed” will not be accepted or permitted.

  5. Do not spam creating groups, especially if they are meaningless or almost empty.
  6. Do not continuously create and remove groups.
