Remember that CR is a PG13 site, first and foremost. You have no defense what so ever in explaining why any R18 images should be uploaded.


Crunchyroll's User-made Group Rules

Rules for a group you create can be whatever you decide on as long as the group does not involve the following:

1) The group may not be used to attack/ridicule other users of this site by doing things like the following for example; creating lists of users to pass judgment on them, posting images of conversations, welcoming the members in your group to harass other users through PMs and/or Forum Posts ,etc. Such groups may be deleted if they continue to be a problem after being warned.

2) Groups with material only suitable for Adults (ie nude images), are not allowed. Otherwise the group may be closed after a 24 hour notice is given to the creator, so he/she can change the group to meet our requirements.

3) Owners and mods of groups that knowingly allow banned users to join under new accounts can be banned for assisting these users in circumventing their respective bans. Their group can also be deleted for this.

4) Groups that endorse illegal activity will be subject to deletion. Posting links to external websites that contain pornography, torrents, profit advertising, illegal online streaming, direct downloads, etc and/or uploading inappropriate content (i.e., hentai pictures) are not allowed.

We only intervene in groups when necessary and as such, dealing with groups is done case by case. This means that the Site Moderators (listed on the staff page) reserve the right to look over your group and impose any new rules on them if it is deemed to be best for the community. If this happens, a moderator will usually explain the new rules to the creator of the group and it will be up to creator to impose those rules on to the rest of the members. If the rules are still not upheld by either the creator or the members, the group could be removed.
