Welcome to the forums.
Any information on the forums or their usage will be collected in this post, or in similar topics in the "Meta" forum.
Since I would rather see forum policy and usage evolve with the needs of the community, at the time of opening I am going to refrain from issuing any strong directives, and instead observe how matters develop. I hope this approach allows the greatest level of flexibility for the forums.
A few remarks:
Currently, it is intended for full anonymous participation to be allowed, much as in the comments on the main site. The extremes of 4ch and similar are unlikely to be possible to accommodate though, so please exercise some restraint.
You can currently edit your posts for one hour after making them. Please do not abuse this function.
BBCode and HTML are supported.
Use the quote button to add an automatic quote.
Images and Attachments:
Attached files are automatically inserted into posts. You can also link external files or images in using img tags, which can also be done for images on Sankaku Channel.
Regarding 2D images fit for the Channel, please consider uploading them there instead.
Sharing may be allowed in a special forum, but definitely not in the normal forums. This is obviously a difficult subject which will require some discussion. Pure discussion about such topics should not present any difficulties.
If you are uploading adult or potentially upsetting (guro) content, be sure to tag it as such. Uploading things significantly at variance with what is on the site proper may create difficulties.
Topics can be tagged, and then navigated by these tags, allowing considerable flexibility in navigation. For example, tagging a thread "Kannagi" will mean anyone browsing that tag page will be able to see all Kannagi related topics irrespective of which forum they are in.
Please try to refrain from creating excessively obscure or overly discriminating tags, as otherwise nobody will be able to find anything using them. If you can't imagine other posts happening under a given tag, consider using a broader one.
It would be simplest to use similar tags to those used on the main site.
The available forums are subject to change; currently they broadly reflect the categories used on the main site, but this will be reformed as required.
If you notice any issues, please report them in the Meta forum or via email. Unfortunately, it is not possible to support IE6, though efforts will certainly be made to accommodate this unruly and obsolete browser as much as possible. Please consider using Firefox.
