Frequently Asked Questions

What is an image board?
An imageboard is a BBS centered around posting and discussing images.
Where should I start?
Before posting, make sure you familiarize yourself with the rules (Specifically global rules 3 and 4).
After that, you could start a new post saying a freindly "Hi!" on >>>/b/.
Where do I make an account?
Most imageboards don't have an account system for normal users. If you must verify your identity, use a tripcode.
What is a tripcode?
A tripcode is a password that comes after your name. When using that specific password your name will have a random string of characters specific to that password.
You use a tripcode by typing your name a pound sign (#) and then the password.
This will be shown as name!ozOtJW9BFA
NOTE: This tripcode will be the same on every other imageboard you visit.
To make your tripcode specific to this site, you must add a second pound sign (#). This is called a secure tripcode.

You can test the outcome of your tripcode here.
What is an OP?
An OP is the opening post to a thread. The OP usually sets the topic for the thread.
What is a bump?
When a thread is replied to, it is "bumped". Newest bumped posts are sent to the top of the board.
What is a sage?
"Sage" comes from the Japanese verb sageru (下げる) which means "to lower". Typing sage into the email field prevents the thread from being bumped. This is used when your not posting something that portrays to the topic of the thread. Example:

Noko is the opisite.
