    Due to recent issues and past concerns regarding thread placements and the amount of sub sections created we created a detailed description of each section.


    Community News: This is a section more commonly used by staff for forum related threads. Here you will find the ask a staff thread and other threads that can help with your forum related issues.

    Sub Section Tech: This section is where you can find help for specifically tech related issues. Here you can also find the AKP shop and Marriage Thread.


    Lounge: As listed it is a place for general discussion. Rule of thumb if your thread doesn’t fit anywhere else this section is probably the way to go. If your thread is in any way related to forum users(not calling them out) this is the section to use.

    Sub Section 18+: Place any sexually explicit topics here or topics that might be considered nsfw. Body part related threads such as “best boobs” fit this section, “best abs” is not suited for this section.


    Awards: Solely for awards team and badge related threads including ask awards team and badge request threads. Badge season allows other forum users to make threads, outside of badge season please ask awards team for permission before making threads in this section.

    Completed Voting Threads: Once badge season is over awards or your voting is done your threads will be moved here.


    Events: Section for any major forum event, not limited to events team because sometimes users want to create their own event and that is fine with events team permission.

    Forum Games: Only for small mini games. Ex count from 1 to 1000. Anyone can post here.


    Introductions: As stated in the title, here is where you can introduce yourself. It’s also a section to get more personal with other users. Share your social media, post your voice, etc.


    The Studio: Have a dance cover you want to share? A fanfiction you wrote that you want us to read? Fanart you want to showcase? This is the perfect section for that. Graphics team can also help you out with a gif or if you want a fancier looking signature.


    Market Place: The only place where you can buy/sell/trade anything. You can even host giveaways if you would like to.


    Kpop: Threads made for discussion and scandals will be placed here. Ex: do you think red velvets concept would suit other groups?

    Bashing Thread: For the bashing section only and ask a bashing thread assistant only. If you however want to make a thread here and feel it would be well suited here you could always ask one of the assistants.

    Comeback Threads: All official updated comeback threads will be moved here. Official threads starting from the moment of announcement to the 2nd week after the MV release the threads will be pinned. For viewability purposes 1 thread per announcement will be allowed in the kpop section. Ex: the official comeback thread will include the teasers pictures, videos, extra but any user will be allowed to also make 1 thread for the teaser pictures, videos, etc at the time of release in the kpop section. Any duplicates will be merged and it’s first come first served.

    Awards and Music Shows: Performances, knetz reactions to music shows or awards won/speeches given/etc. Including but not limited to, music bank, gda, mama, inkigayo, mnet, etc.

    Achievements: This section will include charts, sales, streams, basically anything to do with numbers and trends. Tour sales, merch sales, how many instagram followers you have, and other threads of that nature will be placed in this section.

    Celebrity Zone: The celeb photo and gossip sections will be merged into this section to declutter the forum and due to their inactivity. Any scandal not confirmed or without source will be moved here. Instagram or other social media pictures with no narrative will be moved here. Photoshoots will be moved here. Also all celeb vs threads will be moved here.

    K-Movies and TV: Any thread related to Korean films or dramas, variety shows also will be placed here. Including but not limited to knetz reaction to actors. Scandals specifically regarding an actor will be placed here, if the actor is an idol it can be debated.

    Artist Threads: Official Artist and Fandom threads only, you are allowed to make a tag list in the kpop or lounge section for viewability. However the official fandom thread will be placed here.


    Jpop: All sections in the Jpop section will be treated the same as the Kpop section with the exception of missing sections such as achievements, comeback threads, etc.

    Anime and Manga: Anything related to anime or manga including opening/endings, fanart, favorite characters, scandals, creators, etc.


    Cpop: All sections in the Cpop section will be treated the same as the Kpop section with the exception of missing sections such as achievements, comeback threads, etc.


    Current Events: Politics based section

    Western Entertainment: Anything not Asian related, new season of Dark? New Stephen King adaptation? Ariana Grande scandal? Lord of the Rings vs Game of Thrones? All suit this section

    Video Games and Tech: Games including traditional console type games and phone apps/computer games. Also what type of phone do you currently have? Which laptop is best for photo editing/music producing/etc.

    Fashion and Beauty: Anything related to fashion and beauty including skincare, lotions, face masks, beauty routines, streetwear, favorite shoes, favorite brands, etc.


    • Celeb Gossip and Star Photos will be merged into one sub section due to inactivity​
    • Charts, Sales, and Streams will be renamed to Achievements​


    Apart from the section explanations we’d like to make the report rule clear. It seems a lot of users aren’t very aware of this rule and will constantly break it.

    Reports fall under the same rules as the rest of the forum. This includes bashing, shading, antagonizing staff, and spamming. Failure to comply with this rule will result in warning points.


    Please read through carefully because we will start enforcing these rules more strictly. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask below.

    Our final announcement is in regards to issues that are very transparent or obvious. For example a new account very obviously being another users’ alt. Mods are under certain limitations that impede us from acting directly against the problem. We have a spam option we could use but are under obligations to solely use it on spam accounts.

    So we would like to hold a poll
    Let us know if you agree with giving us that responsibility
    It’s a huge trust users would be giving us
    If you have any questions or concerns, any doubts on this before voting please ask below

    To avoid alt accounts from voting each account voting must be at least 5 months old.

    Edit: Poll will be in this thread

    I first have to think about this complex reorganization.

    @kyutiemir22 I ask for patience. Thanks ;)

    It would be good to collect the suggestions and comments of the forum members for 2-3 weeks.
