Global Rules

  1. No normies, no roasties, no redditors, no normalfags / normalfag posts, no orbiters. This is a big source of cancerous posts. We here at 22chan are trying to be a comfortable imageboard and we try to avoid 4chan cancer as much as possible.
  2. You will not upload, post, discuss, request, or link to anything that violates local or EU or German law. This rule should be obvious. 22chan is hosted in Germany which automatically means that its content has to abide german and EU laws.
  3. You will immediately cease and not continue to access the site if you are under the age of 18. This rule exists for legal reasons. If a site has underage users in germany there are a lot of laws that need to be followed. By simply not allowing underage people to use the imageboard, we don't have to care about those laws.
  4. You will not post or request personal information ("dox"). That means do not post any personal information on any board, including things like IP addresses. As described in rule 2, all content posted on 22chan has to follow local or EU or German law. Doxxing someone (that includes posting information about someone) is illegal in Germany.
  5. Raids are banned on 22chan (Also NO cross-board (intra-22chan) raids). Inciting or participating in cross-board (intra-22chan) or other raids is also not permitted. As described in rule 2, all content posted on 22chan has to follow local or EU or German law. Inciting raids is illegal in Germany.
  6. The quality of posts is extremely important to this community. Contributors are encouraged to provide high-quality images and informative comments. This doesn't have to be followed on every board. We have boards dedicated to shitposting like /sewers/ for example. But we highly encourage high quality posts so we prevent (similar to rule 1) the site to be flooded by garbage.
  7. Submitting false or misclassified reports, or otherwise abusing the reporting system may result in a ban. Replying to a thread stating that you've reported or "saged" it, or another post, is also not allowed. We still highly encourage you to submit reports if you think a certain posts violates rules or similar. This is just to prevent people spamming or abusing the report feature.
  8. Complaining about 22chan without detailed points and potential solutions may result in post deletion and a ban. This rule was introduced after we had a lot of low quality posts like "Boohoo 22chan bad"/etc. We still apprechiate feedback or critisism but it has to be constructive.
  9. Evading your ban will result in a permanent one. Instead, wait! This should be pretty clear. If you're banned then you're banned end of discussion. Feel free to submit a ban appeal and we can talk about it.
  10. No spamming or flooding of any kind. No intentionally evading spam or post filters. Very straight forward. Spam is not shit, simple.
  11. Advertising (all forms) is not welcome, this includes any type of referral linking, "offers", soliciting, begging, stream threads, etc. 22chan is not here to host your free advertisement, simple.
  12. Impersonating a 22chan administrator, moderator, or janitor is strictly forbidden. If you're not a staff member, don't act like one, otherwise people might confuse you with one or you could make a bad impression. Staff members are chosen very carefully.
  13. Do not use avatars or attach signatures to your posts. If you want to be identified between posts, you can use a tripcode and/or a username if you really feel like it, but 22chan is an anonymous imageboard.
  14. The use of scrapers, bots, or other automated posting or downloading scripts is prohibited. Users may also not post from proxies, VPNs, or Tor exit nodes. If you use a proxy/vpn/tor a ban wont affect you, so this rule is to prevent people from using these services to evade bans.
  15. Do not upload images containing additional data such as embedded sounds, documents, archives, etc. If you're only allowed to upload images and videos then you shouldn't upload anything else, simple.
  16. Non-english posts are allowed in general threads that specify the allowance of using foreign languages. Outside of said threads, your posts are required to be in english. We invite you to use 22chan no matter where you come from. If everyone would post in their favorite language nobody would understand anything anymore and this is what we're trying to prevent.
  17. No furries/lgbt/trannies/traps/etc. in any form, please go to 4chan if you need to post this kind of shit. (Violation will cause a ban) We here at 22chan do not like or endorse such content. This rule will be enforced as seen neccessary by the staff team. With this rule we are mainly trying to avoid furries/lgbt/trannies/traps/etc. infecting 22chan and its content. Also, see rule 1.
  18. No threads containing or discussing about porn, gore or rekt. People killing people/etc. also counts as gore/rekt. We are not a pornsite. We are trying to be a comfortable imageboard. Gore/rekt/porn is not comfortable.
  19. No spamming of the same character except if it is a valid discussion. This rule was added cause people kept spamposting anime characters in some threads.
  20. No tfw/mfw and no ylyl posts. See rule 1.
  21. No posts containing, about or discussing your or someone elses kinks/fetishes. See rule 18.
  22. No scat/posting of feces or similar. See rule 18.
  23. You are not allowed to post any content (text/video/images/etc.) that is related to the sexual exploitation or of minors or glorification of such acts/content. See rule 18.

Global rules apply to all boards unless otherwise noted.

Remember: The use of 22chan is a privilege, not a right. The 22chan moderation team reserves the right to revoke access and remove content for any reason without notice.
