    Community Standards

    Generally speaking, as long as the following rules are met you should never find yourself subject to disciplinary action:
    • Ensure a friendly atmosphere to our visitors and forum members.
    • Encourage the freedom of expression and exchange of information in a mature and responsible manner.
    • "Don't be a dick."
    • Remember your audience; both present and future.
    The following is not an exhaustive list of the rules and guidelines that must be followed when participating on Just Anime Forums. The administration and moderation team reserve the right to terminate any and all accounts or remove any content at any stage without prior notice. The rules outlined below are only the minimum expectations of members, and not every issue can be predicted and addressed here, so conduct could still be considered out of line even if it isn't covered here specifically. The instructions of the moderation team must be followed at all times.
    • No harassment, discrimination or abuse of any kind.
      • This includes insults, fanboy, or troll accusations
      • This includes disrespecting members and staff
    • No pornography or sexually explicit material
      • This will include pictures depicting bodily fluids, whether it is sexually explicit in content or not. This excludes pictures of characters drooling and crying/teary-eyed, so long as the content is not sexually explicit.
    • No Inappropriate Names
      • Names that are inappropriate names describing explicit content will be banned and administratively changed. We do have a younger audience on the forum. Just don't do it.
      • Names such as "lol" or "Mememe" being repeated will be considered troll names and users will have their accounts flagged as discouraged.
    • No spam
      • Post count/reputation farming
      • 'Ask Me Anything’ threads
      • Tagging things as 'repost' or 'reported'
    • No Trolling
      • This includes flame wars such as Dub vs Sub, Best Waifu/Husbando, etc
    • No advertising
      • No eBay/trading sites
      • No advertising other chats, forums, or anime sites that are in no way associated with our site. This includes the About Me section of your profile page.
      • No referral links
      • No advertising YouTube channels. (see below for more info)
      • Twitch/YouTube links ARE allowed in user profile status updates
    • Talking about piracy in general is acceptable, posting or discussing pirated/hacked/cracked or otherwise nefariously obtained content is not.
    • Signatures
      • 500 pixels wide by 300 pixels high for static and animated .gif images and no more than 5 lines of text after that.
      • No Advertising/External Links, other than to JAF forum posts, JAN sites, or MAL/AP profiles.
    • Privacy
      • In the interests of personal safety we do not permit the posting of personal information other than your own. This includes usernames, email addresses etc.
      • We highly discourage the posting of and will actively remove any personal information of persons under the age of 13.
    • Moderation & Bans
      • Do not openly discuss the moderation of any content or user. If you have an issue, please contact a staff member.
      • Do not backseat moderate – if there’s an issue, please use the report function.
      • Please be aware staff cannot see private messages unless they are reported.
      • If you have an issue with a moderator at any time, please contact an Administrator via PM @Sporadic, @Jaysp656, or @Vashnik

    Since this is a one time issue, I'm going to get this out now before it becomes a problem.

    If you contact a staff member about a site, forum (and its users), or service (such as Chatango) that is not supported, affiliated with, used by, or otherwise implicitly a part of JAN and the staff member reports the conversation, you can and will be discouraged. Further continued attempts can result in a ban. Only contact a staff member here if you have an issue with a forum or chat member, our services (such as our Chatango group and linked video embeds), or affiliated and/or supported sites on the Just Anime Network.

    Some staff may also be staff or members on other non-JAN sites so do not contact our staff about issues that are on non-JAN sites and not linked to by our network.

    Thank you.
