Forum Rules

  1. First, and above all, remember that everyone is here to have fun and enjoy yuri together. Being overly aggressive, insulting, or generally a jerk is against the rules. This includes:

    -Hate speech, racism, sexism, etc. By the same token, do not refer to trans people and/or crossdressers as "traps."

    -Wishing harm upon artists, scanlators, other users, or basically any other living person.

    -Backseat moderating, i.e. "You're gonna get banned when the mods come," "How have you not been banned yet?" "Is such a short ban really acceptable?" etc. You may report any concerning posts in the Help thread and they will be reviewed by the mod team.

  2. Spammers will be shot. Kitchen reno spammers will be shot twice.

  3. We encourage the promotion of yuri works or projects by members of the community and do not consider such promotion to be spam. To advertise your work, please use a relevant thread, post in the Dynasty Cafe, or create a new thread for yourself.

  4. Insulting scanlators or artists is unacceptable, and will result in your comment and possibly you being removed from the forum. They work hard to bring us the yuri we love, and they don’t need abuse for it. Do not ask, plead, or beg for more or quicker releases. It may be acceptable to seek an update on a series that appears to be sitting dormant, but always do so respectfully. Anyone found to be violating this rule may be subject to permanent removal from the site.

  5. Do not link to Mangakalot, Mangahere, or any other illegal, profit-driven online reader. Links will be removed once spotted by staff. Frequent attempts to link to these sources will result in a ban. Links to publishers site's, scanlator's sites, MangaDex and e-hentai are perfectly acceptable.

  6. There is NO rule 6.

  7. No linking to unauthorized scans of material on Lezhin, such as Pulse or What Does the Fox Say. Lezhin are very protective of their copyright, and we'd rather avoid landing the reader in hot water. Generally speaking, links to online-hosted Korean material (manhwa) should be avoided.

  8. No avatars with live-action porn or inflammatory language. Staff may ask you to change your avatar if it is deemed offensive. Failure to do so may result in account removal.

  9. Off-topic posting and conversation should generally be kept to a minimum. Thread derailment or re-purposing is unacceptable in all cases. Threads attached to specific manga are meant primarily for discussion related to that manga. Users are encouraged to visit the Dynasty Cafe, where you will be able to talk about any subject you like. Mods reserve the right to delete, without notice, spillover content from other threads and other chronic off-topic content.

  10. Tags are meant to inform users so that they may interact with works that appeal to them, and avoid those which do not. If your comment on a given work could be summed up as a comment on the tag itself, please avoid making the comment. Repeat offenders may be disciplined as necessary. This rule also applies to pairing tags. Do not engage in "shipping wars" in doujin threads or image comments.

  11. Homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia are grounds for immediate removal from the site. These sentiments are acceptable under precisely zero circumstances.

  12. Harassment is never acceptable, on these forums or anywhere else. Any user found to be harassing artists we host on this site will be permanently removed without discretion.

In all cases, Staff reserve the right to interpret the rules as they see fit. We strive for fairness and appropriate case-by-case judgement.

If you do not enjoy certain content and do not wish to interact with it at all, the site does offer a blacklist feature. You may blacklist up to 5 tags; blacklisting will remove them from the front page, though you will still see these tags in searches. You may access the blacklist feature like so:

Forum Post Formatting - Basic Markdown Tutorial by Thiron

Old Markdown Thread.

This post is made to help Dynasty Forum users understand how they can format their messages.
The formatting is based on Markdown language, though there are some small differences - for example, you cannot insert HTML code blocks, but can mark spoilers.
The syntax is relatively simple. You can just quote this post to see how it's made.


This is a header. It starts with #


This is a 4th level header. It starts with ####


There are some horizontal lines here...just write *** at start of line to make it.


This is a code block. It starts with 4 spaces

This is code span. We usually use it for tags. It's surrounded with `.
Take notice that ` and ' are different symbols, you need the one that's on the left of 1 key on standard keyboard.


  • This is a list
  • You need to start each line with * and a space

  1. This list is numbered.
  2. Start each line with number period space
  3. Number order doesn't actually matter, shown list will be same

This is a quote. Start it with > and space


This is a nested quote

Just add more > for extra levels


Quotes may also be divided

By adding - between them


This is a spoiler. It is surrounded with == . Mouseover to see the text inside. Please actually use it when talking about some important plot points.


This text is in italic. It is surrounded with either * or _ This text is in bold. It is surrounded with double symbols, either ** or __.


This is a hyperlink. You need to surround link text in [], and link target in ().
Also, if you insert raw http address (starts with either http or www) or e-mail, it will become a hyperlink
http://dynasty-scans.com
random@email.not.really

Image is similar, but you need to start with ! And text doesn't really matter.


Don't forget to add some spaces or lines to separate elements - and to remove them for correct formatting. If you mess up, you can get stuff like this:
** this block won't become bold because of extra spaces ** But this one will


Please tell me if I forgot something, I'll add it.
Don't forget to Preview your post to be sure.
Repeating what I've already said, just click on quote to see how this post was made.

Site Userscripts


If you'd like your userscript added to the OP, just make a post about it in the Help thread.

Old userscript thread, made by Alice Cheshire.


All userscripts require Tampermonkey to use, both for Chrome and Firefox.


Dynasty Thingifier (Author: Alice Cheshire)

Adds a lot of general options for the forums.


Dynasty Gallery Viewer (Author: cyricc)

This is a userscript that allows you to browse images on this site much more easily using a modal image viewer with next/previous buttons, similar to Instagram et al.


Dynasty Mark Read (Author: cyricc)

This is a userscript that greys out chapters marked as Read when viewing chapter lists.


Dynasty Title Rethingifier (Author: Alice Cheshire)
This user script simply changes up how titles are ordered.

With script:
Without script:


Dynasty Tagifier (Author: gwennie-chan)
Last updated: September 17, 2020

Features

Forum Tagger

Forum Tagger scans forum posts and image comments looking for Tag objects, checks if the tags are valid, and, if so, turns them into clickable links to each tag's page. (If you have the script installed, this Yuri tag should be linked.)
(For the nerds, it does this dynamically pulling and parsing Dynasty's JSON and then scanning all <code> elements.)

Tag Suggestions Switcher (TSS)

TSS puts a controller bar on the tag suggestions status page (link requires account) so users can select the type of tag suggestions (Approved, Rejected, or Pending) the page displays, whether a single type, a mixture, or all of them.

Forum Stats Number Shortener (FSNS)

FSNS converts the stats numbers on the Forum navigation pages for views and posts to automatically shorten, round anything over 1000 and insert the appropriate abbreviation ("K" or "M") after the shortened number.


Dynasty Tag Hider (Author: cyricc)

Allows you to hide tags that you choose, preventing them from being displayed on all chapter listings. Some tags can be rather spoilery in nature so this helps with avoiding that. Currently only tags that appear on the Tags page can be hidden (i.e. not doujins or pairings). This functionality may be added in the future.

This is not a tag blacklister. It only hides tags from being shown in the tag list of a chapter or series.


Dynasty Loading Progress (Author: cyricc)

Last updated: February 5th, 2021

Adds a (real) progress bar to the Loading indicator in the reader.

May not work in Private/Incognito mode, because it depends on normal browser caching to detect the loading state.


Dynasty Chapter Comments (Author: cyricc)

Last updated: February 5th, 2021

Show forum posts corresponding to a specific series chapter directly on the chapter page, comments style.

Since Dynasty does not actually associate series discussion posts with individual chapters, the userscript estimates this by comparing their timestamps. This means that posts discussing earlier chapters, or the series in general, may show up if they were made after the chapter was added. Also, chapters that were added to Dynasty in batch will only show comments when viewing the last chapter in the batch.

Surprisingly, I couldn't find some site that consistently worked how I liked. The one I posted was stolen from another comment, but getting it yourself is roundabout (need an account on another forum to get the proper links). Given the more recent expansion of people using externally-sourced images here, maybe we'll look into adding some emojis of our own or something, given that those would be nicer for the servers and presumably users as well.

Sylke, we've been over this enough already. In this very thread, too. You've been banned for a day for violation of Rule 10:

Uh, you must confuse me with someone else. That's the first time I post on this thread. If you refer to a comment you made, sorry, I didn't see it despite reading pretty much everything.

I've been banned once before for criticizing an author using LGBT history to write porn for cis men. :)

So far, I'm confortable with the reasons for which I'm getting banned. No problem.

We clearly do not agree on a political, moral, and societal level on what is acceptable or not. But that's your website indeed, that's your problem. Though I find it quite funny to see you ban me for that, and all the trolls, flamers, insulters, sexists, transphobic users that actually get a pass. Clearly we don't have the same priorities. ^_^

No, that's not quite right. Sometimes, in a hurry, I don't express myself as clearly as I could. I meant we - as in, a collective group of people on this forum, and in that thread - have discussed the topic(s) of folks being "way too comfortable with pedophiles" enough. It is not a topic that demands more attention. If you feel it does, there are plenty of places you may post about it. A thread for a manga with the Lolicon tag is not one of them, as this violates Rule 10. Rule 10 exists to (hopefully) keep discussion of controversial topics from spiraling out of control.

We clearly do not agree on a political, moral, and societal level on what is acceptable or not. But that's your website indeed, that's your problem.

While I grant you that we do not agree on a social level, to extrapolate this to morality, politics or "society" surely shelves the ~80%+ I imagine we do agree on. I also feel you're missing the mark a bit.

I'm not here to tell someone what beliefs are right or wrong, I'm not smart enough for that. I'm here to (again, hopefully) tell them what is acceptable behaviour here, and here alone, on a forum for comics about (mostly) LGBT characters. Something like "comfort with pedophilia" is a serious topic that deserves serious discussion. Again, I'm fine with that discussion being had, and had here if that's really what folk want. However, I can assure you, broaching such a topic in that manga's thread, in the manner you did, is completely fruitless. Likely inflammatory too, intended or not.

Though I find it quite funny to see you ban me for that, and all the trolls, flamers, insulters, sexists, transphobic users that actually get a pass. Clearly we don't have the same priorities. ^_^

The rules are entirely specific that all the behaviours you've described are violating the rules; if you care to point out any of them to me on a given day, I will take care of them. Otherwise, I will delete, warn, or ban folks who I see violating the rules. That's it.

Thanks for the response, by the way. Always appreciative. Take care.

I think having a discussion on lolicon as a genre and how we relate to it is useful. I understand you don't want this discussion on a thread about a specific manga - I'm sorry I did just that, I wasn't trying to start anything. But it sure would be nice to talk about it and if it has already been discussed, I'm interested in seeing the discussion.

I personnally have a rather open-minded view on this (I think ?), I enjoy age gaps a lot and I like fiction that tackles this subject. Some of my favorite mangas are lolicon by definition, but the way they treat pedophilia is always well thought and morally interesting. I have a problem with the genre when it includes doing harmful things to kids as if it was totally normal and never representing the pain caused. I would certainly REALLY criticize the idea that "it's fiction lol", I think nothing is more twisted than that. So some mangas are more problematics than others.

In the same way, some users have a way to openly react and talk about pedophilic behaviours that is very problematic and should not exist on this forum - or anywhere really. It would be great if Dynasty was more aware of that and did something about it.

As a final note, and just to be crystal clear about how real this is : pedophiles are on this forum. A lot of them. They read these stories. They enjoy them. And they recruit here. When I was 20 I was sent pedophilic pornography by a guy from a manga forum I barely knew. He said something along the lines : "this is the kind of horrible thing we can find here, what do you think ?" Let's not be blind and naive about it. We are not all mature and "it's only fiction". A lot of users have very grey lines that need clear education and warnings ; and some others are way over the red line.

Now the last part is just your assumption and given there is notDM and only the forum, i highly doubt someone will be dumb enough to try this and for the others two, so what ? A lot of peoples here have read and enjoy lolicon stuff.
Let's be honest 2s here, reading and appreciating Lolicon stuff doesn't make you a pedophile at all

When I was 20 I was sent pedophilic pornography by a guy from a manga forum I barely knew. He said something along the lines : "this is the kind of horrible thing we can find here, what do you think ?

Hey now, i'm sorry you have a bad experience but let's not put evryone in the same boat. Just because you have one bad experience on a manga forum mean every manga forumis the same.

I would certainly REALLY criticize the idea that "it's fiction lol"

But that's what it is. In the end, we talking about fictional kids, it won't hurtany real persons. If i remember correctly, i saw something saying that fictionals loli/shota stuff helped some pedophiles with their urges and going to the act. It sound creepy yes but that's honestly better that that kind of peoples can fix their urges with fictionals stuff and not commit crimes on real kids.

I'm pretty sure if you go through all works tagged as lolicon you can find plenty of discussion there. People coming into thread of series containing lolicon (or other tag they hate, like rape for example) to either comment general hatred of it or preach how immoral and reprehensible the story is for including it, is sadly very common and one of reasons the rule 10 was made. Some people do try to discuss it in relation to specific series and how it approaches the topic, but most of the time it immediately turns into talking about pedophilia as a whole and morally judging everyone who said they enjoy it or defend given work being here, making discussing it in relation to actual series impossible.

As for having serious discussion, you could always just make a dedicated thread and see if people are willing to engage or you could start conversation in Dynasty Cafe, though that has downside of conversation potentially being lost in the thread over time and less people joining, because they'd be not aware such conversation is taking place there.

Sure. I don't have any specific examples, but if you peek at any Lolicon thread prior to 2021, you're likely to notice a ton of discussion over this in general. It's around page 6 on the tag. As for discussing it further or elsewhere on these forums, I'm afraid I don't have much to offer. So long as it's not crowding a manga or otherwise purposed thread, and generally abides by the rest of the rules, I don't have any issue with it.

A lot of users have very grey lines that need clear education and warnings ; and some others are way over the red line.

I'm sorry that happened to you, I understand how unpleasant seeing certain things can be. However, that didn't happen here. And unless there is some proof provided that it does, I can only believe that any attempts to "recruit" anyone to be anything are kept to a minimum. As an example, we have a Discord server full of people with varied views on this subject. I've never heard of anyone receiving something like that privately, and visitors who believe pedophilia is cute or acceptable are removed from that platform immediately.

If you'd care to share examples of users here making untoward suggestions or advances that may be applicable to real life, please share them anytime. If you don't want to do it publicly, I'm always available on Discord at Orange Pekoe#0863 or via email.

Hi, I have a question cuz it's been a while since I was on Dynasty but I didn't really changed in script or anything. I went to my Read list and only 1st page looks like it's been read (grey) and the rest are regular blue. I was confused when I went to one tag where I remembered I read already a lot but suddenly I have most of them blue. I reinstalled the script but nothing helped. Any ideas what happened?

My "To Read" list also changed from light blue to regular blue, so I'm assuming that was caused by Dynasty changes since this never happened before.
The site changing so that lists get broken into multiple parts probably caused an error in the script.
From what I tested it looks like the script still works fine as long as no other such change happens to the site again.
So I think whatever you add to a list will have the proper color independent of how many pages the list has.

Only way for you to fix the colors is by individually opening each chapter / tag and removing / adding to the list again.
If you try doing in the list itself with "Actions on Selected" they won't change colors.
I wanted to tell that to the script creator, plus a few suggestions, but unfortunately they disappeared.

Edit: The ideal would be Dynasty giving us option to assign colors to the lists.
Or at least give specific colors for whatever gets added to the four default lists.
Like that I don't think any more errors would happen.
