howto:comment

Comments are generally very welcome. If you know something interesting about an image (such as an author's comment or related video), but there's no designated place to put it, the comment field is where it goes.

Guidelines
  • Be polite. Racist, sexist or homophobic attitudes are not tolerated. Flaming other users is not tolerated either.
  • Brevity is appreciated, but posting many short comments in a short period of time is considered spamming. Your comments may be deleted and you may be banned.
  • Mark your spoilers. The formatting for it is below. A mod will edit it for you if you forget.
  • Try to keep conversation related to the image. Post in the forum or use private messages if you want to carry on a longer discussion.
  • Practice safe internet habits. Private information (name, age, location, etc.) should be kept to yourself.
  • Avoid TMI.
  • Read the timestamps. You can reply to old comments, but keep in mind that the other person will most likely not see your response.
  • Fix obvious mistakes instead of posting a comment about it. Leave a comment if you really have no idea what to do.
  • DO NOT POST IN ALL-CAPS. You don't need to scream.
  • Comments in all languages are accepted. However, comments in languages other than English are unlikely to have responses.
Formatting
See help:dtext for information about formatting used in the wiki and comments. Some usage notes are below.

Spoilers
Spoiler tags can be given a title with [ spoiler=text here ] (remove spaces). However, they will break if there is a line break inside the tag.

URLs
Use << url | text >> to alias a URL.

Tag Search Shorthand
Use { {tag1 tag2} } to link to a tag search. You can search for any combination of 1 to 6 tags and metatags separated by spaces, such as { {user:dovac holds:true date:2009-12-26 order:mpixels_asc -rating:e limit:50} } and so on. (Remove the spaces between the brackets)

If you're unsure about something in an image you uploaded, we heartily recommend a short comment pointing this out. This could be anything from asking for artist/source to how to romanize a new anime or character. We'd much rather have you comment like this and give someone with the knowledge the opportunity to help out, rather than leaving it half-finished and having someone go back and clean up the mess you left.
