Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I find my own submissions and comments?

When you're signed in, you'll see a link at the top of the page that says 'My Stuff'. Click this link to see your your stuff.

What is that safe(r) mode link near the top of the page?

This website has a lot of posts and comments on it that many people out there might be offended by. To help shield these fragile eyes from the pain of looking at such things, when Safe(r) mode is on, the site attempts to hide as much of it as possible. However, at any time, you can click on that link in the top right hand corner to reveal all the good stuff that Is It Normal has to offer. We'll remember your choice too, so you only have to click it once if you want to see everything. By the way, we call it "safe(r) mode" and not "safe mode" because we know we're not perfect and we won't be able to ever make this completely "safe". It's as safe as we can make it.

Are posts reviewed by moderators? Does anything go?

We are a very small team and we do what we can. Posts reported by the community are reviewed by our staff and if needed they are removed from the site. The same goes for comments. If you see something, say something! (report it. thanks.)

How can I delete a submission of mine?

If you are the author of a post, when viewing that posts's page you will see a "Delete" button directly below the post's contents. Press this button to delete your post from the site. If you are having trouble finding it, just email us at info@isitnormal.com and we'll help you out.

How can I delete a comment that I made?

When signed in, you'll see a small "Delete" link inside any comment of yours while your mouse is hovering over that comment. Just click that link and the comment will be permanently removed. You can also edit new comments for a few minutes after posting them by using the "Edit" link.

I want to delete my account, how can I do this?

Send us your request via the contact page ( /help/contact ) and we will take care of this for you. Thanks. Please don't delete your entire account just to get rid of one post (see above) or to disable email notifications for comments (you can do this from your settings page). Also, if you'd prefer to just change your username rather than delete your account, you can submit that request via the feedback form as well (tell us what you want to change it to!!).

I hate your ads! Why don't you get rid of them??

IIN costs money to run, so unfortunately we need the ads. Servers, moderators, programmers, etc. BUT, we don't show any ads to registered users and registration is quick and free. So, sign up for a free account and you'll have a nicer, ad-free IIN experience.

I forgot my password how can I change it?

If you've forgotten your password or your username you can fill in the form here: http://www.isitnormal.com/forgot-password/ We'll look up your email address and send you a link to reset your password. Don't forget to check your spam folder for the email if it doesn't come soon.

Will my username be shown with my posts?

No. Only with your comments.

I can't sign in to my account, it's not working, why!?

If you're absolutely sure your username and password are correct, then most of the time this happens because your account has been disabled by our moderators, usually for being under the age of 18. You probably wrote about the fact that you're underage in one of your comments or posts. The fact that you need to be 18 to sign up for this site is made extremely clear during the sign up process and we need to enforce this. If you'd like to appeal such an action (if your little brother used your account or something), just send us an email via the feedback form and we'll investigate further.
