These rules apply to all forums on the site, some categories may have additional rules, be sure to read any topics about rules in each forum you visit before posting.
  • Guests may only read posts, they cannot post. You must register to post.
  • Registration is required for posting to prevent spam and abuse. E-mail confirmation is required for registration to avoid spambots from easily creating accounts. Registration confirmation is all your E-mail will be used for.
    • Note: Your profile will default to making your E-mail visible, be sure to turn this off unless you wish other users to see your E-mail address.
    • Guests can not view profiles, only registered users can. This is to prevent spambots from grabbing addresses from profiles.
  • New users will not be able to edit their website or signature fields until they have made 5 posts. This is necessary to block spambot registrations.
  • Signatures are allowed once the 5 post threshold has been reached but no images are allowed in them. If you have an image in your signature a moderator will ask you to remove it. If you don't, your account will be removed. Note: Admins may remove offending signatures then notify you afterward at their discretion.
  • You may link to avatars off-site, but they must comply with the size limits imposed by the board. These are 100x100. Avatars larger than this will be automatically resized on display. (Note this will make all avatars 100px wide and the height proportional, if your avatar is smaller it will be stretched.)
  • There are seperate forums for Hentai. These are only available for viewing for those users that request it. No Hentai topics are allowed in other areas of the board! Your post/topic will be removed by the moderators and you will receive a warning.
  • Do not post spoilers openly, we have a tag available for this purpose, it's called "Hide". It's simple to use, and will hide the spilers until a user clicks on the "Click here to reveal hidden content" text.
  • You may use the "Img" tag to display an image inline in your post but please do not do this for very large images. In those cases link to the image instead to keep the page loads quick for everyone.
  • You may not link to any torrents, torrent sites or sites that provide access to torrent downloads (this will include a lot of fansub and manga scanslation groups' websites). This is to protect us, and you, from the issues surrounding torrents of licensed material and sites that host both. If you want to tell someone where to locate a torrent, send them a private message or E-mail to let them know.
  • Similar to the above regarding torrents, you may not link to any direct downloads or sites that provide direct downloads. Again this is to protect us, and you, from issues surrounding the downloads of licensed matierial online and sites that make that possible.
  • We reserve the right to change links to online stores to affiliate links. This is done solely to help pay for hosting costs for the site.
Welcome to the AnimeBlogger.net forums, we hope you enjoy your visit! Smile

This really doesn't need to be a rule, since it's something that should be common sense so I'll just put it in a reply:

Joining the forum, making no posts but immediately sending a private message to the admin asking where you can download anime is a very good way to get yourself in trouble. It's incredibly rude and it did result in the person who did it losing their rights to send private messages until they prove themselves to be a serious forum member.

I don't know what else to say, I'm frankly a bit in shock that someone was rude enough to do this!

haha... go the stupid people....
I'd say it was more of a case of not thinking then rudeness.... Good on you for 'lerning him one'.

Why are no images allowed in sigs? So long as reasonable limits are enforced... ?

2005/11/30 Update:
  • Modified torrent/torrent site linking rule to be more clear on all sites that are unallowed. Now the rule notes that any sites that provide torrent downloads are unallowed, which will include many fansub and manga scanslation groups' websites as well. This is necessary because of groups that continue to sub/scanslate licensed titles.

2006/08/16 Update:
  • Added new rule about new users not being able to edit their website or signature fields until they have made 5 posts.
  • Modified signatures rule to note that the 5 post threshold must be met before signatures can be modified. Also added note that Admins may delete offending signatures first, then notify user of the rule they broke.
