The Board

/newsplus/ is 8chan's counterpart of one of 2ch's most popular boards.

/newsplus/ is a board to share and discuss news stories. Currently, it is the only global board on 8chan, which means it is owned by the 8chan administration and is not subject to the claims process.
The board rules are:

What Are Reporters?

In order to create a thread about news stories, users first have to become reporters. Anyone can apply for a reporter account by sending an e-mail to <[email protected]>.

A reporter is required to have a name attached to his threads and to follow the rules. As such, he needs to be as active as possible and on-topic when creating threads. Not following the rules will result in the reporter account being removed. No account or anything of the sort is required to reply to any thread.

Furthermore, reporters are not able to ban, delete or otherwise moderate /newsplus/. They are not able to see post histories and they do not have any other abilities other than being able to create threads. The moderation on /newsplus/ is handled by the global staff.
