1. Board Usage Guidelines

1.1 Rules

  1. You will not upload, post, discuss, request, or link to anything that violates local or United States law.

  2. Pornography, nudity not of academic or artistic value, commercial advertisements, soliciting, spam, racist or sexist content, and blatantly off-topic content is prohibited.

  3. In no event will content created or uploaded to harass, defame, extort, or otherwise revile other users be tolerated.

  4. Abuse of this site’s software, including (but not limited to) any form of malicious hacking, ban-evasion, and/or exploitation is not authorized.

  5. The guidelines, policies, and rules on this page will be interpreted at the sole discretion of the administrator. Violations of the information outlined on this page may result in a warning, a temporary or permanent ban, and/or legal recourse.

1.2 Specifications

The "Name" field in the post form is required to post. The "Name" field is automatically populated with Anonymous. You may post with a different "Name", and you may use a tripcode.

The "Subject" field in the post form is required to post. The "Subject" field will be automatically populated when replying.

A country flag corresponding to the GeoIP2 data of your connection will be automatically attached to the "Name" field of your post. Users who do not wish for a country flag to appear on their post may opt-out of this on a per-post basis by checking "" in the post form.

The "Comment" field in the post form is required to post. A "Comment" may be automatically screened for malicious URLs and/or blatantly spammy content.

The "File" field is not required to post. However, users are free to upload any file that Valhal.la may support. An uploaded "File" may be screened for malicious content. Archives embedded in image, audio, and plaintext formats will be automatically removed. A "File" may alternatively be uploaded from a remote URL.

The maximum filesize of any "File" is 6 MiB (defined as 6 * 1024 * 1046 bytes). The filetypes supported by Valhal.la may be found here.

1.3 Text Markup*

When posting, plaintext input may be formatted or "marked-up." Text markup is only applied to the "Comment" field.

The following basic syntax may be used:

Unprocessed Text:         Processed Text:
==two sets of two equal signs makes header text==two sets of two equal signs makes header text
''two sets of two single quotes makes italic text''two sets of two single quotes makes italic text
'''two sets of three single quotes makes bold text'''two sets of three single quotes makes bold text
 ~~two sets of two tildes makes striked-through text~~ two sets of two tildes makes striked-through text
**two sets of two asterisks makes spoiler text**two sets of two asterisks makes spoiler text
>a single greater-than sign makes greentext>a single greater-than sign makes greentext

Properly-formatted URLs of the protocol HTTP or HTTPS will automatically be hyperlinked:

Unprocessed Text:         Processed Text:

Additionally, you can point to other posts using two greater-than-signs, followed by the post number:

Unprocessed Text:         Processed Text:

Note that this will be automatically added to the "Comment" field whenever you click the post number of a post, found in the post header.


*Misuse of this feature constitutes "abuse" and is punishable under the Rules outlined above.

1.4 Content Retention

Just as content is regularly created on Valhal.la, it is regularly cycled and deleted. Valhal.la has a maximum capacity of 1,024 threads (32 pages of 32 threads each). When this limit is reached, new threads will cause the last thread on page 32 to be deleted, or "pruned." Pruned threads cannot be recovered.

Threads are "bumped" to the top of page 1 upon being created or receiving a new reply, thereby showing the newest content first. However, after a thread reaches 256 total replies, the thread will no longer bump.

1.5 Reporting

Users may report malicious content, or content that is otherwise inconsistent with the spirit and intent of this site. To report a post, check the box beside the particular post and enter a "Reason" in the field at the bottom right of the page.
