Planet Hanyu

All about the happenings on Planet Hanyu


0) This is a Yuzuru Hanyu fan forum. Please only join and post if you are a fan of Yuzuru Hanyu and his skating.

1)  Keep criticism constructive! Constructive criticism is always welcome on Planet Hanyu.

- Non-constructive criticism and abuse of either skaters or other members is not allowed. Keep your criticism specific (i.e. not X sucks or even X’s jumps suck but, for example, X’s air position is frequently off-axis, or X has a mule kick on her toe jumps).

- No abuse means no trolling, harassment, personal attacks, character assassination, discrimination, or excessive profanity.

- No sexual content in the general threads.

2)      Keep general chatting out of clearly labeled threads (translations, fan cam compilations, etc.). In other threads, try to keep off topic content to a minimum.

3)      Give credit to images, articles, and other media you didn't create.

- If you want to post an article (including translations, news articles, blog posts, etc), try to post a quote and a link instead of the whole article unless you have explicit permission from the author.
- Please check with content creators regarding reposting their work. We will comply with any requests to take down posts by the rightful content creators.

- Fanart and fan-taken photography must be credited. If you don't know the source, put "PM me if you know the source." Edit your post if you later discover the source.
- As a general but not inclusive rule, if there is a watermark, you should link to the source. Please do not remove watermarks.

4)      No solicitations or spamming.

Don't post for the sole purpose of promoting other websites, asking for money, or advertising. If a website or fundraiser is relevant to Planet Hanyu, it may be allowed, but please check with forum staff first. 

5)    Don't post personal information of another member of the forum. And do not post personal information about skaters that isn't public information.

6)    Don't discuss world politics on the forum.

7)    Use the report post button if you see anyone violating these rules. We will try to respond as soon as possible.


In the rare event that any rules are violated, we have a points warning system. Warning points expire after 1 month and vary depending on the offense. They vary from small (repeatedly not crediting fanart after being asked: 1 pt each) to serious (personal attacks: 20 pts).


After accumulating:

40 points - moderators must review all posts
50 points - suspension

until your points have expired and fallen below the thresholds.

After reaching a cumulative 100 points, the user may be banned. However, we reserve the right to immediately suspend or ban users who have no intention to follow the rules
