Post only in English 🇬🇧 or Japanese 🇯🇵
So everyone can understand your message. Although posts in Japanese are allowed, in general it's advisable to write in English, so people that are still learning can also participate.

Formatting Tips ✍️
The JapanDict forum supports Markdown. You can improve post readability by using the toolbar to format text, or do it manually.
- Use subheadings to help split text-heavy posts into clear objectives: You can use this to help organize the text of a post. To organize longer posts with subheadings, use
# for 1st level headers,
## for 2nd level,
### for 3rd level and so on.
- Format blockquotes by placing
> at the beginning of a line
