MyWaifuList.moe Terms of Service


By using MyWaifuList, you agree to follow this TOS (“Terms of Service”) document. We may change this at any time, so check back often.


To use MyWaifulist, you must be at least 13 years of age. To access NSFW content on MyWaifuList, you must enable it in your profile options when such an option becomes available. If you are a minor accessing MyWaifuList, please get your guardians permission to use this service.


We don’t assume liability for anything as this site is powered completely by user submitted content.

Terms of Use

We reserve the right to suspend any account, for any reason. Additionally, you agree to the following:

  • Do not crawl or use spiders to scrape content without explicit permission
  • Do not perform any activity that will degrade the service of other visitors
  • Do not attempt to bypass security measures in place
  • Do not spam or post excessive comments
  • Do not use bots to manipulate voting

Prohibited Content

The following is NOT allowed:

  • NSFW content is not allowed
  • Sharing illustrated or digitally altered pornography which depicts minors (such as lolicon or shotacon).
  • Sharing content related to minors that is sexual or violent. Do not share or post links to images that depict minors or underage individuals engaged in violent, sexually suggestive, pornographic, shameful, or otherwise inappropriate situations.

Understandably, with anime characters in particular it can be difficult to judge their age from imagery alone. We would like to ask that you use common sense judgement in these cases, and refrain from posting pornographic (or explicit) images of any character who is, or based on appearance could be, interpreted as a minor.

Prohibited Content Example

Acceptable Upload
  • Official Art
  • Nothing too crazy

Unacceptable Upload
  • Unofficial Art
  • You know why

MyWaifuList aggregates user submitted content, images, and moderation and approvals are done by independent users who elect to volunteer their time and act as power users. As these users are independent and moderation is a community driven effort, some works will (inevitably) be the work of others that were mistakenly uploaded. If you would like your work removed, please read the section below.
