    Hello sothis,

    It seems that the above link is broken.
    I always get a 404 error when I try to reach it.

    I also want suggest you to add a link to Simon Tatham's great article titled How to Report Bugs Effectively.
    Even if it was written in 1999 it is still up to date and very useful to help people understand how to report a bug.

    This other article may also be useful to some extent : How To Ask Questions The Smart Way by Eric S. Raymond and Rick Moen.

    Regards,
    M

    Hi and welcome to the forum. :drinking:

    For a post about Death Note you'd want to put that in the Death Note thread in specific anime discussion. The thread can is here: http://www.anime-planet.com/forum/threads/death-note.11989/

    If you want to post about any anime then you should go that anime's site page and click discuss in the forum. Anything currently airing will definitely have a thread. If it's something that's already aired, then the most popular shows will have threads, but for more obscure show a thread might need to be created. If you find something that doesn't have a thread then you can post here to http://www.anime-planet.com/forum/threads/anime-thread-requests.323211/#post-1894517 and a moderator will make a thread for it.



    This is something you can create yourself in General discussion. Just got to general discussion, then go to the bottom of the page and click post a new thread.

    Custom lists are lists you can make about anime and characters on the site. You can make a list for just about any topic you want. You can write reasons for why each entry is included.

    Hopefully that answers your questions.

    I'm not sure what you mean by listing forums. If you mean you want to make a list type of thread, then it's probably better to make a custom list for that different anime or character lists. The problem is list threads don't encourage conversation.

    simple listing.
    For eg. post funny anime memes, anime quotes, things you like/hate/dislike about anime, etc.

    Also, Can I make a forum called-
    questions we want to ask the opposite sex-
    do u ever have questions about the opposite sex u wish u could just ask them but u can't really/ easily ask in real life. Post questions and people of the opposite sex will answer and vice versa.

    This will lead to genuine discussion, will be interesting and fun and will even help out a lot of people.

    can u tell me the usernames of all female mods on ap. i'd like to invite them to the women's thread. also, i want to invite all female users on ap to women's thread. is there a way to do that? thx.

    how many members does this this site have?

    i want to make a discussion forum on a sensitive subject. it is sensitive but i don't intend to offend/hurt people's feelings. i mean to have an objective, honest discussion. the title of the forum shall be
    ''Are anime and manga as media/genre of entertainment, art and story telling, good/bad/excellent/mediocre?''

    and a poll if that is possible.

    could u give your advice and feedback on this subject.

    also, are we allowed to make clubs/ blogs on AP. if we r i will make these topics as blog posts or club forums. thanks.

    We do not give out personal information about users, or moderators, period. Staff are also not going to share data with you about site users, let alone about the other moderators, without their permission.

    I am strongly starting to believe your account is either a bot, or is here to harvest data/market something, given your site account is essentially blank and there's a lot of very weird stuff being posted in the forum. I find it highly suspect that you've asked several mods as well as publicly asked for the staff to share personal information with you about the entire site userbase.

    If you'd like to discuss period memes, questions about the opposite sex, etc, places like Reddit or general forums will be better. This is a casual anime site/forum.

    Image threads are not allowed, and clubs/blogs are no longer active site features.
