NPChan is an anonymous discussion (image)board for Nepal, where anyone can create new threads(posts), and reply to them without creating account or revealing their identity.
NPChan is Nepal's version of anonymous discussion image board such as 4chan and 8chan. However, NPChan won't be limited to just "discussion board".

Why Donation? Have you approached anyone?
We want NPChan be independent of its own and we do not want your online freedom be censored by anyone. NPChan will never be associated with any company and will never add "partners" or "investors". We do not want NPChan be a money hungry website and will just accept kind donations from people with no strings attached.
Frequently Asked Questions:
1. I want to help but can't donate money (due to my own reasons) is there anything I can do to help?
ANS: Yes, we understand not everyone has enough money to donate to some random project on internet made by people you don't know. But, you can still help us without donating money. After we bring back NPChan services back again, you can help us by posting quality posts and replies, and sharing NPChan to your friends. If we can just get enough people to use NPChan, it will make us happy enough.
2. This project is less likely to complete its goal. Does this mean NPChan will not be back until full goal is reached?
Ans: No, NPChan will be online as soon as we finish our redesign despite any relation to donations we receive. NPChan will continue its services, even if we do not get any donation from our own pocket and will never force anyone to charge for our services.
3. I know Programming, can I help on your script?
Ans: Yes. NPChan will provide its source code very soon on GitHub and you can help us develop new features, fix bugs or just simply suggest new features.
Another way to help is by making NPChan Client for different devices. NPChan will provide a free and open API to anyone willing to make a client for NPChan. Please contact us via email to know more!
4. When will you deliver the above promises?
Ans: NPChan's anonymous discussion board will be available to public again in Jestha (1st if possible) and all other features will be developed soon after. However, we cannot promise you that you get ALL the features mentioned above on launch date. NPChan will get updated daily and new features will be added daily to be as close as our goal.
5. What's in it for me?
Ans: Sadly, we cannot offer you "Premium Services" as we already promised there will be no premium services.
6. Reward Delivery?
Ans: Since we are accepting donation to bring a service back online, biggest reward is NPChan itself. All money donated here will be put to use on NPChan's server, domain and advertisement cost. The more money we collect, the longer we can keep our server running and NPChan will be ad free.
Donating for NPChan will not provide you with any special ability or control over NPChan. We are only accepting donations and not investment. If you don't want to donate, its fine and no one is forcing you to do so. We will happily put NPChan online even if NO donation is received, a small donation will help us just to headstart our project and will let us focus on developing site more and worry about financial problems later. Please consider this before donating.
