|Frequently Asked Questions|
|What is an imageboard?|
An imageboard is a type of discussion board where users share images and text about various topics.
The primary difference between imageboards and traditional forums is that anybody can make a post without registering an account or providing any personal information. This lowers the barrier to entry, protects user identities and focuses on what is said, rather than who says it.

|What is the file size limit?|
Max size of form data per-post is 30MB. Because other fields e.g. name, message, etc contribute to this, the maximum size of file uploads will be very slightly smaller than this.
|Which file types are allowed?|
Currently the following file types are allowed: .apng, gif, .jfif, .jpg, .jpeg, .mkv, .mov, .mp3, .mp4, .ogg, .opus, .pdf, .pjpeg, .png, .svg, .txt, .wav, .webm and .webp.
|How do I make my own board?|
Currently user board creation is disabled. However you can register an account to become a mod on an already existing board. If you represent a community that wants to seek refuge on this site, try your luck and use the Meta board to ask if your board can join Zchan.
|How do staff, users and permissions work?|
There are 5 levels of permissions on the site with 0 being the highest level of privilege and 4 the lowest. In this list "Regular user" refers to somebody who is either not logged in or is not owner/mod of the board. For example if a user creates their own board, they do not have the "Board owner" permissions on other boards. Each board can have one owner and multiple moderators. Ownership can be transferred.
