|Frequently Asked Questions|
|What is an imageboard?|
An imageboard is a type of discussion board where users share images and text about various topics.
The primary difference between imageboards and traditional forums is that anybody can make a post without registering an account or providing any personal information. This lowers the barrier to entry, protects user identities and focuses on what is said, rather than who says it.

|The "language" of code blocks is optional. Without it, automatic language detection is used. If the language is "plain", highlighting is disabled for the code block. Not all languages are supported, a subset of popular languages is used. If the language is not in the supported list, the code block will be rendered like "plain" with no highlighting.|
|How do I make my own board?|
Register an account, then create a board. Please avoid making excessive amounts of boards, duplicate or boards similar to an existing one unless you expect that many users will migrate to the new board for whatever reason e.g. tyrannical moderation.
|How do staff, users and permissions work?|
There are 5 levels of permissions on the site with 0 being the highest level of privilege and 4 the lowest. In this list "Regular user" refers to somebody who is either not logged in or is not owner/mod of the board. For example if a user creates their own board, they do not have the "Board owner" permissions on other boards. Each board can have one owner and multiple moderators. Ownership can be transferred.
