History

Content

Each fan club has several different sections:

  • Wall - users can post comments here
  • Images - users can post any image here. Here they can separate them into different sections: official images, Screencaps, wallpaper, fanart and icons
  • Videos - users can post videos or vids from Youtube
  • Articles
  • Links
  • Forum
  • Polls
  • Quiz - pop quiz on the fan club's subject
  • Answers - users can ask or answer questions

Controversy

  • Due to the fact that anyone can add images to the fanclubs, many fanworks such as fanart or icons were posted to the site without asking the artist's permission or giving them credit
