Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Does the U-18 in U-18Chan mean under eighteen? Can I post my CP here?
A: No, U-18Chan is actually named after the U boat of the same name from The Great War. Child pornography is not allowed here. You need help, sick bastard.
Q: Is this board run by Nazis?
No, the 'pawstika' seen around the site is the adopted symbol of the Aurorafurries, the group who created this site. U-18Chan is not based on any political or moral basis. Our staff all have their own perspective of these types of things.
Q: Where do I go to sign up?
A: Besides the focus on images, image boards are very well known for their use of anonymity when posting. You do not have to sign up or register. Instead, you simply post with whatever name you choose. You can use tripcodes to help identify yourself if you wish. Currently, there is nowhere to sign up on U-18Chan, so all features may be used by guests and returning visitors alike.
Q: What are the 'features' of the site that I keep hearing about?
A: Scroll to the bottom of this page for a list of all our current features or check out the site guide
Q: I posted [content] on [board] yesterday, but now it's gone! What happened?
A: If the post was made on an inappropriate board, a staff member has most likely moved it to a more appropriate one.
Q: I have some images I want to share that do not fit any of the existing categories, where can it go?
A: If something does not fit an existing category, please post it in Requests & Source. If you know some other people who are interested in the same thing, leave a post on Lounge stating so. If there are enough supporters, we may add a board for it.
Q: I want to post some lesbian yiff, so that would go in Gay Furries, right?
A: No, but this is an understandable mistake. When U-18Chan was first created, we only had the boards Furries and Furry Comics, but as the community grew, we felt the need to create new boards for gay content (male on male), and eventually a shemale board as well. As a rule of thumb, anything a heterosexual male would enjoy goes on Furries or Furry Comics. This includes lesbians and/or orgies etc. If something involves males in sexual contact and females, it's a bit iffy. In general we post those on Requests & Sauce. One day this may change.
Q: Well that is stupid. You should just make Straight Furries and Straight Furry Comics.
A: No, you are stupid. We have not bothered to do this, since we would then have lesbians and gays on the same board even though they do not appeal to each other, and we'd have to move a lot of stuff around. We also fear change.
Q: I want to know if anyone has some pics of a specific theme, should I just make an identical request on all boards?
A: No, not if you don't want everyone to hate you forever. If you have a lot of this theme of image, post it in the most appropriate board and ask people to join in. If you have little or no images, or the theme does not fit any of the existing boards, post your request on our Request & Source board. Do not make the same request on multiple boards.
Q: I asked if anyone had any [content] on Requests & Source a few days ago, and now the thread is gone. Why?
A: Once a request is filled on Requests & Source, it is given roughly 24 hours before a staff member moves it to an appropriate board, if one exists. This is for organizational purposes.
Q: Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?
A: You've got to be kidding me. I've been further even more decided [DATA EXPUNGED]
Q: I heard from a friend that he read on [website] that U-18Chan was responsible for [action] and this upsets me. How could you do this U-18Chan?
A: Don't believe everything you read on the Internet. If you are genuinely interested in this site's history, or want to know what part we may have had in an event, either make a thread asking on Lounge, send us an email, or come and have a friendly chat in here
Q: The rules say that even drawn or digital pornographic depictions of animals are illegal, doesn't that mean yiffy art is illegal and against the rules?
A: The United Kingdom laws, and hence our rules, are targeted at depictions of animals engaging in sexual acts with humans. Although Furries (some more than others) have animal characteristics, they are fictional. What does this mean to you, the user? It means furrows are okay, but ferals are not. Ferals engaging with furries is a gray area, but we prefer to stay on the safe side and not allow it. This is not up for discussion.
Q: Why are drawn and digital images of child pornography and bestiality against the rules? That's stupid.
A: It is against the law, not the rules. Our server is hosted in the United Kingdom, so we will abide by the laws there. U-18Chan has no official stand on this subject. The opinions of individual staff members does not reflect on this website. Also, YOU are stupid.
Q: How am I supposed to be able to tell if a drawn character is over or under 18?
A: Use your common sense. If it is obvious the image is of a child then do not post it, if it looks like they could be over 18 then you are fine. The law is meant to prevent people from being exposed to something similar to child pornography and eventually drawn into the real thing, as well as to stop tempting paedophiles. It does not matter whether or not you agree with this, nor is this the opinion of U-18Chan. It is that of the United Kingdom government. We will not be too strict on furry images, since they are fictional creatures and not human. Staff members will use their own judgment if material if this nature is in question. Note that cub yiff is still against the rules.
Q: Why is cub not allowed?
A: Though cub is not technically illegal in the United Kingdom, it is still pretty risky and controversial. For this reason we're going to err on the side of caution and deny it from bring posted on our boards.
Q: So I guess that means any underage furries are banned?
A: No. Whatever you think or have heard, we here at U-18Chan describe cub as babies or toddlers. Basically anyone who has not hit puberty yet. Furries are not real creatures, so posting a comic with characters who are say, 16 or 17 is perfectly fine. Our moderators may end up making judgment calls on content that is in the fuzzy area in between, but you will not be banned if we decide the content is not allowed, so don't be afraid to post anyways.
Q: Someone told me that posting [content] is not allowed, should I trust him?
A: No. If something is not allowed on U-18Chan, it will be stated in the rules. If anyone tells you otherwise then they are a filthy liar, or mentally impaired. If it is the latter, please be nice to them. Retards have feelings too.
Q: How do I make sure people are not imitating me?
A: All image boards are equipped with the ability to use what are called 'trip codes'. If you place a "#" character after your name, followed by any combination of characters you can remember, just like a password, then when you post a series of characters generated by the board software in a slightly different font. The same set of characters will appear every time you use your trip code on any image board. This is the most common way of identifying that you are the same person. You can also use a 'secure tripcode' by using two "#" symbols instead of one. A secure tripcode will generate a different set of characters for each board you use on each site.
Q: Can you delete [user]'s post in the [content] thread on [board]? He/she is saying negative things about the comic and/or that he/she said he/she does not like the artist who made it. Hypocrite.
A: First, try not being so vague next time. Secondly, no. He/she is allowed to talk about what he/she does not like about a specific piece of art, or an artist in general. This is called critiquing. If you want, you could comment on their post, causing a conversation. I know, it sounds crazy, but trust me. They are not a hypocrite for expressing their negative opinion. Attacking other users because of their opinion could be flagged as flaming and result in a ban.
Q: Do I need to bump threads?
A:No, threads on U-18Chan do not 404, therefore bumping of threads is not necessary, in fact, any bump posts are automatically revoked by the server to avoid cluttering up the threads.
Q: What happened to the old site and the old old site?
A: The old old site was on ImageBoard4Free until it went offline one day. We eventually purchased our own server and ran the site off of Kusaba X. Eventually, the poorly coded software overloaded the server, so we came into contact with the ImageBoard4Free creator and got the course code he wrote for his site. We then transferred our Kusaba X database onto the ImageBaord4Free software,which is far more stable. In short, we are done fucking with server shit. For now..
Q: I want to send a picture to my friend from my hard drive, can I upload it to any of the boards and send them the link that way?
A: So long as the image or images are related to the boards they are posted on, and they are left u for everyone to share, go ahead. However, U-18Chan is NOT a free image hosting website. http://imgur.com is much better suited for that sort of stuff.
Q: I'm a copyright holder and some of my work is posted on U-18Chan without my permission. I don't like this, what can I do?
A: U-18Chan hosts user submitted content. That means our users upload content without it being checked by the staff. Whilst we at U-18Chan do try to prevent copyrighted works being uploaded, we are all volunteers and have other commitments as well as U-18Chan. Because of this, we will often miss copyrighted content. If you wish for your copyright content to be removed, email us at [email protected]
We at U-18Chan can not be held responsible for any lost emails sent to the wrong address, etc.
Q: A post says "(This post was made from a proxy.)
", what does this mean?
A: When someone posts using a proxy and we find out, we ban that proxy as per the rules. We will also put this text on a proxy post so people know. This is useful for preventing ban evasion, trolling, and samefagging.
Q: Is Jay a girl?
A: Stop asking me that.
U-18Chan Feature List:Standard Image board features:
â¢ Sage: Whenever you post, the thread you posted in is bumped to the top position on the first page for that board. If you enter "sage" in the email field, the thread will not be bumped.
â¢ noko: Like sage, this is entered into the email field when posting. If you post using noko, you will be redirected to the thread you posted in or started after hitting submit, rather than the first page of the board.
â¢ Watch Thread: This adds the thread selected to the Watched Threads list. This list will let you know when a new post is made, even when browsing other board. You can see you can see and manage your watched threads list by clicking the "WT" link in the top right corner of each page.
â¢ Quote: Putting a ">" symbol before a line of text will make it appear in a different colour. This is used for quoting other posts, similarly to an email. Features that are unique to U-18Chan:
â¢ Multi-file Upload: You are able to upload up to five files in one post on select boards.
â¢ Post linking: In order to make a link to another post in your post, either click on the post ID, or manually enter it with ">>" in front. An example would be ">>23864". This would link to post number 23864. Most image boards support this, but they require on extra step to link between boards. U-18Chan uses one pool of post numbers for all boards, so this is not required. This mean you can post a ink to /fur/ when on /c/, as an example.
â¢ Indices: Select boards have an index. The index of a board shows the subject and image of the first post of every thread on the board.
â¢ Report Post: You can tick the box next to any posts you think should be brought to our attention and select the Report option in the bottom right corner of the page if you like. Staff will be alerted of the post and look into it.
â¢ Is Spoiler: Click the check box next to this when posting if you wish your image to be shown as a spoiler. When this is done, the thumbnail generated will be a stop sign with the word spoiler on it. People will have to open the image in order to see it.
