Locked AniList Guidelines & Data Submissions

These guidelines are at the interpretation of the mods and admins of the site. Ignoring any of these guidelines may result in content being removed locked or even your account being banned from AniList. We may alter these guidelines from time to time without an announcement. However in most circumstances any changes will be announced to the community beforehand. If you have any questions or suggestions regarding our guidelines please create a topic with the Site Feedback tag or ask in the sitesupport channel on Discord or direct message a community mod for private matters and we will get back to you. General Site Guidelines Copyrighted content: Discussing linking or guiding others to illicit copyrighted content is prohibited. This includes streaming websites/apps torrents direct downloads etc. Mature Content: Media classified as Ecchi must be shared in spoiler tags and must be labeled as such outside the tags. Media classified as NSFW is outright disallowed from being shared on the site. Ecchi images contain pantsu lingerie underwear or other questionable content. The following list is not allencompassing but should give you a general idea: Underwear or lingerie both fully or mostly visible. A tiny glimpse such as the top of a bra cup bra straps or the top band of underwear is generally fine. Clothe outlines that can not be distinguished from nipples. Fetish content such as bondage latex armpits feet etc. Sexually suggestive poses/framing. Undressing to nude or mostly nude. Excessive sideboob underboob or cleavage. NSFW images are considered NSFW if they contain real graphic violence or explicit nudity of any kind. The following list is not allencompassing but should be a general idea of what to avoid: Detailed Clothe outlines such as cameltoe areolas that can be distinguished from nipples or a crotch bulge clearly distinguished as a penis and balls. Depictions of sexual acts regardless of nudity and including partial/cropped images even if no genitals or other erogenous zones are shown. Bodily fluids such as semen precum vaginal discharge fetishized lactation fetishized blood realistic feces realistic vomit or realistic urine. Any fluids meant to be intentionally mistaken for the others and used in a sexual context will be treated as the liquid they are attempting to imitate. Nudity such as exposed pubic hair pubic regions exposed female nipples/areola even if only partially exposed areola bare breasts a thin strip of cloth will typically still trigger this rule or bare buttocks. Clothed crotches that take up the majority of the frame. Sexual or sexually implied images of childlike characters. Given the age of a character the stated age should be immaterial what is important is the visual design of the character in that image. Real graphic violence such as extreme amounts of blood gore or violence. User Behaviour: Trolling harassing or abusing users will not be tolerated. Context will always matter around a possible infraction. Conspiring with others or harassing an underprivileged class may result in harsher punishments than the reverse. Some examples of what can be considered harassment are as follows: Repeatedly sending insulting messages. Dogpiling. Any statement that is prejudiced against a group of people such as but not limited to race ethnicity gender sexuality or religion. Evading another users block regardless of the reason for blocking. Telling another user they should kill themselves or that they should die. Sending another user intentionally disturbing images or sending them intentionally disturbing statements. Posting racist homophobic transphobic ableist xenophobic religious discrimination or illegal content is prohibited. Making light of or glorifying nonfictional violence is prohibited. Doxxing another user is prohibited. Doxxing can include publicizing private or identifying information such as but not limited to names addresses phone numbers work information imagery etc. Accounts must not impersonate other people or users. Offensive user names bios avatars and banners will be removed. This typically is just an extension of our current rules against various forms of bigotry. Graphic and overtly sexual conversations should not be had in public spaces forum posts public statuses public messages etc.. Its not something we want minors stumbling onto so keep it private. This does not give any allowance to images that would otherwise not be allowed to be shared or linked to in these private conversations. Spoilers: All spoilers should be contained within spoiler tags and state what work they are a spoiler of unless as a comment on watched/read activities where relevant spoilers should be expected. Spam Any posts or statuses deemed as spam by a mod will be removed. Some examples of what may be considered spam are below. Please note this is not an allencompassing list: Copypastas. Posts made to be excessively long by including purposeless content or padding. Repeated posts of the same or similar message with little value or the intent to annoy this can be from one or multiple users all sending a single message each. Making many posts in a short time span. Sending the same message to many people. Pinging an excessive amount of people. Dont make accounts solely for posting statuses replies forums etc unless permission has been given by a member of staff. Do not repost activity to skew the home page feed. Advertising: Any unsolicited text intended specifically to promote/generate traffic to external websites will be removed. Occasional status posts to share ones blogs videos twitters chat servers etc are not a violation of this rule.
