These are public boards and may contain adult content.
Do not enter if you are under 18 or it is illegal for you to view such material.
All images and comments posted are the responsibility of the poster.
If the matter you want to contact us about is a smaller matter, like a ban, or something that's important or time-critical, like image removals or DNP requests, please use IRC. If you are concerned about a paper trail: Don't worry, we want to have one too and will ask you to send relevant emails. This venue is only meant to speed things up by being able to discuss in real-time.
If your matter is not very urgent, please use email. Do note though that, unless you are perfectly sure on who to contact, you should CC all moderators.
Also, as a last note: If your matter requires the attention of Xenofur, emailing can incur LARGE delays. If you need to talk to him it is always the best way to talk to him on IRC.

Q. What kind of board?
A. fchan is a heavily modified wakaba-based imageboard, for the posting of furry artwork (porn, mainly).
Q. Why furry?
A. Just to fill the gap left by the demise of the infamous 5chan.
Q. What's "sage"?
A. This feature was disabled and replaced with a "bump" checkbox in order to work against the perversion of this feature that has happened thanks to 4chan. On other image boards entering "sage" (minus the quotation marks) in the E-Mail field prevents a post from being bumped when you reply to it.
Q. What are tripcodes?
A. Anything following an # in your name will be converted into a 10-character string, or 'tripcode', allowing you to verify your identity (for example, name#tripcode becomes name#3GqYIJ3Obs). Results should be the same on the discussion and image boards, but don't count on it. Just avoid using non-alphanumeric characters if you want to be sure. Example:
