Frequently Asked Questions

What do I do here?
dulmBox is a simple anonymous textboard where you can post about whatever you want. There really isn't a topic.
Can I post whatever I want?
There are a few rules, so if what you're thinking of posting violates those, no.

Obscene content is partly allowed. You may post casually obscene things, but you may not post anything that breaks the law, or is outwardly edgy. This pretty much means you can't post political stuff, gore, pornography of any kind.
Can you post tits? Maybe. Can you post nothing but tits? No, go away.
Can you post swastikas? If it's not political, ok. Can you post swastikas while advocating for illegal actions? No.
Can you post gore or war imagery of any kind? No, that stuff is edgy.

"Porn isn't edgy, WTF!"
dulmBox is not a porn dump. dulmBox will not become a porn dump. Stop being a coomer.

"What's the general rule of what not to post then?
Don't post anything edgy and/or illegal, that's pretty much it. I understand that this can be too subjective, but that's the rule.
Can I register an account?
Short answer:

There are "tripcodes" which hashes your user ID (how dulmBox identifies you) and puts that hash into a colored ID on your posts. You may choose to use these or not. These can allow other posters to see who you are.
Can I change the way this website looks?
The Settings page doesn't exist as of September 2021.

dulmBox allows you to personalize a CSS stylesheet that only you can see. Simply go to Settings and change your stuff. You should Inspect Elements to see the current styles of the site. View the website's source (Ctrl + U) to see dulmBox's entire default stylesheet, on the top of the source.
How can I browse dulmBox with a slow device or connection?
dulmBox has removed the /txt/ feature, which allowed users to see a text-only version of dulmBox. It was hardly usable, and you can curl the main page and still read the posts despite the HTML and CSS.

dulmBox is designed with minimalism in mind for low-bandwidth connections and the smallest amount of processing required for the user. The difference between bandwidth on the actual /box/ page versus a text-only page is negligable.
Do you have a Discord?
Discord sucks. Ask yourself this: How does a service with so many features remain free to use?
If you shill your shitty Discord group on here, your post will be deleted. This is the most common offense on dulmBox.
How do I appeal a ban?
Tell the owner of the website or an admin to unban your IP if you've been a bad boy. How you contact them is your problem.
The best way to contact the admin of DULM and dulmBox is by connecting to the #dulm IRC channel on the Rizon network.
What time zone does the board use?
Eastern Standard Time
America/New York
UTC -5:00 (UTC -4:00 summer)
Where are images stored?
dulmBox allowed image uploads for a year or two between 2020 and 2021. These pictures were uploaded with a maximum dimensions of 250x250. I decided dulmBox should strictly be a textboard, and allowing image uploads could be a risk later on.
Why must I be an adult to use this board?
Dealing with people that aren't adults is a pain in the ass, legally and socially. Allowing under-18s on this website would require very intense moderation of content and preventing obscene content from being posted as a whole.
Yes, it's against the rules to post obscene content, but only hardcore shit. No-one really knows what could be considered obscene content but we do know who can't see this vaguely defined no-no content, and that's people under age 18, so it's far more easier to not allow those people here to begin with.
Is LGBT and furry stuff allowed?
According to rule 3, sexual stuff isn't allowed. This includes discussion of LGBT and furry stuff, or anything else that's completely sexual in nature.
Am I truly anonymous?
No, and you never will be.

dulmBox benefits from the anonymity of its posters because the nepotism and faggotry that comes from name-recognition in online communities is cancerous, for lack of a better word. However, if you are going to post illegal content on dulmBox your anonymity is suddenly gone and dulmBox would be required by law to spill the beans about your crap. Don't be an idiot, you're never anonymous online.
Why can't I advertise my textboard?
Just because you found dulmBox on a textboard directory doesn't mean you can come here and spam your textboard. Read Rule #7. Do not shill.

Also, we don't want other imageboards being linked from this one in case those boards are edgy or something. Bots will associate this board with theirs. Think of this as a violation that is forbidden by both Rules #7 and #4.1.
Can I have the dulmBox textboard software?
Short answer: No.
However, there is a free software I made that you can use on your own textboard! It was made with simplicity in mind. It's very basic, but it gets the job done.
