We are about to have an influx of refugees from the shuttered 8chan, and this is probably inevitable.
However, this is not 8chan, and it's definitely not 4chon.
Participation is welcome, but a sudden sharp increase of alt-right material and garbage posts will not be tolerated.
Please leave your hitlers, seisatsu.pngs, burning crosses, and shitpost floods at the door.
Even on /ot/, we expect some level of quality in our posts. Please familiarize yourselves with our rules and guidelines, and make sure to lurk before posting.
Also, apologies for deleting the /4chon/ refugee thread outright, I overreacted. There's nothing wrong with such a thread as long as it doesn't cause me too much of a headache.
Enjoy your stay and don't be a dick.

What would you do if people started posting in Japanese everywhere, all the time? I don't see any rule against that, so would you have a problem with it?

There is already some posting in Japanese, and that shows that we have some Japanese speaking users, which is fine in itself. However, I think that people who are comfortable writing in English should prefer to do so, because it lets more people join in the conversation.

If suddenly there were a disproportionate number of threads in Japanese, it would bump threads off of the front pages which the majority of our users can participate in, and replace them with threads that only a small minority of our users can participate in, and that could be a problem.

In Sushichan a while back, there was an incident where suddenly one or two people started making a large number of new threads in Russian over a short time span, and I deleted the threads because I perceived it as a troll rather than a genuine attempt at having conversation. It was an uncomfortable decision, and made me feel a little racist. Suddenly having a huge number of Japanese threads happen would be a strange situation for me and the site, I'm sure, and I don't know exactly what I would really do. Since the Japanese language is so intertwined with our fanbase for obvious reasons, I would probably allow it, unless it became obvious that people were doing it to be intentionally disruptive to our English speaking majority, like I suspect with the Sushichan incident.

Edit: Basically, some threads in other languages are fine, because I am sure we have Japanese (and other) users who are not comfortable with English. However, it could be a problem if a minority language greatly displaces the majority language in discussion here.
