1. What is the purpose of this imageboard?

Despite its name, Grimchan is not an imageboard solely centered on spooky stuff. Grimchan aims to be a place that balances free, open expression with quality posts and content. We try to be as open to suggestion as possible, allowing suggestions and criticism by users via the /reap/ board. So in other words, we're just a "meet in the middle" sort of place.

2. Are you rulecucked?

If your post does not violate any rules or laws, it will not be deleted, and that is a personal guarantee by the owner of this server. You might get a reply saying your post is crap, at worst, but free speech is free speech.

3. Why did the site go down last year?

Grimchan was previously hosted on Alpharacks, as was 76chan, among other niche imageboards. Alpharacks went through a complicated controversy resulting in the deletion of all servers on its network. You can read about this at the following thread:

4. Will the site stay up this time, you dumbass Admin?

The new server Grimchan is hosted on is from a trustworthy provider. We have paid a hefty increase compared to our initial fee to acquire this server. The plus side is that it is much more powerful and feature-rich, so the site's speed and stability is improved. There should be no reason for the site to go down anytime soon.

5. How do I appeal a ban?

Currently we're using Telegram (https://t.me/grimchanxyz) for ban appeals and discussion regarding the site. Just join the group and message an Admin to appeal your ban. If there is any protest to using Telegram, users can suggest other options (like email) by posting about it on /reap/.
