Rules and Terminology

Users
  • Incel (Allowed): Person who desires, but is unable, to be in a romantic relationship.
  • Blackpilled (Conditional): Person who is not currently incel, but agrees to respect the views portrayed on the forum.
  • Female (Not Allowed): Banned on sight, no exceptions.
Rules
  • Bragging: No (discussing or requesting) personal romantic or sexual experiences, even if they happened long ago. No humble-bragging. Looksmax.me is more suitable to discuss romance. Note heavy bragging outside of incels.co may carry a warning/ban if it is brought to our attention. No larping; there's a difference between withholding your experiences and pretending they never happened.
  • Users: No persecution, bullying, sharing accounts, or posting on behalf of banned users. You can only have one account.
  • Behavior: No trolling, baiting, white-knighting, mass PMing, posting misinformation, platitudes, or arbitrary necroposting (i.e., don't post in inactive threads (older than ~1 month) unless you have a good reason to. Plain agreement, mere quoting, or meaningless one-liners don't qualify as a good reason).
  • Content: No low effort, spam, advertisement, all-caps, or selfies. Threads posted to the main forum (Inceldom Discussion) must relate to involuntary celibacy or the blackpill.
  • NSFW Content: Pornography and violent content needs a [NSFW] tag if it's a thread, spoiler tags if it's a post. No NSFW avatars or signatures.
  • Disallowed:
    • Asking for ratings (use looksmax.me).
    • Traps and gay content.
    • Worship of both males and females (meaning praising them, putting them on a pedestal, posting pictures to admire them, etc). This also applies to avatars and signatures.
    • Cherry-picking (e.g. posting unattractive men with girlfriends).
    • Requesting a ban (PM a mod to do so instead).
    • Discussion of illegal activities.

FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

-What are incels? What is the blackpill?
All information can be accessed from this thread.

-Who are the site staff?
Check the staff page.

-I have an inquiry or proposal, where can I reach you?
Email [email protected].

-Does the site have a Twitter?
Yes: twitter.com/IncelsCo

-How do I change the site's theme?
There is a button on the bottom left of the page to change themes.
The five available are: Light, Dark, Classic, Fast Banana, and Fast Banana Dark.

-When can I send PM's / vote on polls?
If you're active you'll be given permission automatically. It's a spam prevention measure.

-How do I add an image to my signature?
Go to imgur.com and upload the image. Click on the down arrow once its uploaded -> Get share links, and copy the BBCode (forums) link. Paste that in your signature.

-How do ranks and stars work?
You earn one star per 100 posts, up to 5 stars.
Once you get 500 posts your rank and color changes, and you reset to one star again.
Notice that for each rank you need to have been registered one extra week on the site, this is so spamming to skip ranks isn't possible.
You can see all ranks in the Members section's sidebar.

-I have more than X posts, why hasn't my user color changed?
If you have the post count + registered time required, simply be patient; the 'upgrade' process runs every hour.

-How do I change the tag under my username / my alert preferences?
From your preferences panel.

-What is Fast Banana?
Change your theme from the bottom left corner of the page to Fast Banana, you'll see.

-Can I block a user that is annoying / I don't like?
Yes. Click on their username, followed by the button "Ignore".

-Can I edit / delete my posts and threads?
Posts: You have a 1 hour window to edit / delete them.
Threads: You have a 1 hour window to edit them, but you can't delete them, as otherwise good discussions are sometimes lost.
You can always ask a Mod to remove content if you really need it gone.

-How do I get alerts from a thread?
At the top right of every thread there's a button that says "Watch".
If you want to Watch a particular thread without having to post, simply click the button.
By changing your alert preferences, you can automatically Watch threads after you post in a thread, or after you create a thread.

-Can I change my username?
No.

-Can I delete my account?
No. We do not delete accounts nor mass-delete content.
You can PM a mod to get a voluntary ban.

-What happens if I am banned?
Your posting privileges will be taken away, and you won't be able to start PM conversations. Sometimes existing PMs will be deleted.
If you feel your ban was unfair you can post an appeal in the "Ban Appeal" section. Read the sticky there first.

-How can I stay safe online?
The same way you do anywhere else: Don't post personal information (real name, address, phone, email, pictures, etc), unless you are comfortable exposing that information to the whole internet. If you want to go a step further, you can post with a proxy or a VPN (we don't allow either during registration to avoid spam, afterwards you are allowed).

-How do warnings work?
Warnings you get are active in your profile for exactly 1 month by default, and can be seen only by moderators.
Active warnings will add up, and if they total 60% or more you will get a temporary ban (up to 4 days). At 100%, you'll be permanently banned. To know your warning level simply add up each warning PM you have received over the last month.

-Why was X user warned / banned?
Warnings are personal, we do not publicly announce reasons.
You are free to PM the user in question to ask, though know that it will not be an official statement.

-What is a low effort reply?
Low effort replies are generally unrelated to a thread or posted for memetic value. Examples: emote reply to thread, many men, go ER, and many other variations.

-When are low effort replies allowed?
Low effort is tolerated in Offtopic as long as it doesn't become spam-like.

-Are antisemitism and racism prohibited?
Both have a very high chance of breaking the existing rules against persecution, bullying, trolling and personal attacks, after all, members of the forum belong to many races and cultures. Severity and frequency raise the likelihood of mod action.

-What is offtopic?
Threads unrelated to inceldom or the blackpill are offtopic. Threads that could be related to inceldom, but where the OP has not elaborated on the thread’s relation to inceldom, are offtopic. Example: “How often do you shower?” is offtopic, but if you add “Do you think the frequency of your showers has had an effect on your inceldom?” it is now inceldom discussion.
