fringechan.org's Global Rules

  1. Do not post, request, or link to any content that is illegal and or may get us sent to jail or have our servers shutdown (i.e., child porn).
  2. Don't spam (create on topic threads, and post constructivly)

That is all. You have total free speech.

What is "sage"?

Posters may reply to threads without bumping them to the top of the index by putting "sage" in the email field.

What is a tripcode?

Most posts on fringechan are made anonymously, but this is not the only way to post. The name field can be used four ways to establish identity:

  1. By simply writing a name in the box. This is insecure as any other poster can write the same name.
  2. By writing a # character and then a password. Putting #example in the name field would become !KtW6XcghiY. This is reasonably secure, but with increasing GPU speeds these tripcodes can be cracked in a few days by a dedicated attacker.
  3. By writing two # characters and then a password. Putting ##example in the name field would become !!Dz.MSNRw9M. This is quite secure, but it relies on a secret salt on the server so the code will not work on sites other than fringechan.
  4. Board owners and volunteers can enter the special codes "## Board Owner" and "## Board Volunteer" which become capcodes that display after the name. The fringechan administrator can type "## Admin" which becomes fringechan Administrator.

Please note, many boards on fringechan have an option set called "Forced anonymity" which causes the name field to not work. This is because many users (and therefore board owners) do not like tripcode users.
