Submission Guidelines

Detailed Policies | FAQ

All posts that are directly related to a series require the series' title in the title of the post.

Posts that don't fall under one of the easily defined tags do not require a tag.

If your post involves spoilers or asking for them place the [Spoilers] tag in the title.

Simple/general questions that don't suit any of the below tags only require a [Spoilers] tag where appropriate.

When submitting a new volume/chapter discussion post, it needs to be a text post and please use the following link syntax: [DISC] 'full name of the novel' Volume#/Chapter# - HQ text post template.

You need to spell "Volume", "Book", "Chapter" ect in full.

Any questions which have a singular answer are not discussions.

Place the [REC] tag in the title for posts that are asking for novel recommendations.

Place the [RT!] tag in the title if you are giving a recommendation for a series (RT! = Read This!). Please use the following link syntax: [RT!] name of Light Novel (list of genres)
