- Respect other members at all times.
- Rudeness, threats, personal attacks, harassment, stalking and the like will not be tolerated.

- You may only register for one account. Registering multiple accounts is not permitted for any reason.
- You are solely responsible for the content in your profile and the messages you send on this site.
- Profiles must be created only for the purposes listed when joining this site. Members of the media and researchers are not permitted to use Oh My Japan for journalistic or research purposes without the express written permission of Oh My Japan, Inc.
