What Are Otters?
Otters are semi-aquatic mammals of the Mustelid family. They inhabit every continent except for Australia and Antarctica. They are predators that mostly eat fish and seafood. They have long bodies and webbed feet used to swim, and they have extremely dense, soft fur to keep them warm.
There are thirteen different species of otters around the world. Some live in freshwater, some in saltwater environments, and some in both. Otters range in body length from half a meter up to two metres.

Usernames and Tripcodes
As an imageboard, Otterchan does not have a user account system. It is customary to avoid using unique usernames when possible.
If necessary, however, one can use the Name field to generate a Tripcode
from a password. Tripcodes can be used to prove identity while retaining anonymity.
To use a tripcode, enter a name of your choosing, followed by #, followed by a codeword of your choosing (ex. Name#password
) into the Name field when making a post. For extra security, use two ## instead of one.
The "Link" field
field is commonly used for sharing email addresses, but can also be used to specify certain post options. You can type "sage" into this field when replying to a thread in order to prevent it from going to the top of the index.
Otterchan runs the Wakaba imageboard software. Formatting your text works as follows:
Surround text with * or _ to make text italic. *Like this* or _like this_.
Surround text with ** or __ to make text bold. **Like this** or __like this__.
Make an unordered HTML list by beginning each line with *, or -. You can add line breaks in list entries by breaking the line and indenting the next line with one or more spaces.
Make ordered HTML lists by beginning the first line with "1.", and the following lines with further numbers. It actually doesn't matter what numbers you use, as long as the first one is 1.
Make blockquote sections by beginning each line with ">".
Make code sections by indenting each line by four spaces or one tab. Code sections get shown in a monospaced font, and are not otherwise formatted.
Make short spans of code in normal text by enclosing the code in backticks, `like so` . To display code that contains backticks, use several backticks to surround it, ``like so`` .
Make external links by just typing the URL you want to link to. Post references like >>1 are also automatically turned into links.
Do no leave empty lines in the middle of lists or quoted blocks, as this turns them into separate blocks.
If you still have questions, there is always a support thread
on the board.
