The chat feature has been recently implemented on Muushi.net to meet the demands of many users. Users can open It on a different window, allowing to browse through the various pages of the forum and to chat at the same time. In the M-chat there are a couple of public chat rooms you can go to, or you can easily create a private room & invite a select few you wish to talk with.
Administration and Management
All new posts are moderated by Muushi staff and further posts are usually monitored to avoid flaming, unneccesary comments, and posting of illegal links. The moderation staff also help users with any questions or problems they may have, and keep the site running smoothly by making sure that user's posts are in the right section. Scouts are standard users that help consistently to the share of contents to the site and try to fulfill the user's questions and requests related to the file listing sections. That's how the Team is composed:

Forum rules and Regulation
Muushi.net has a 18+ age restriction so the forum's browsing is totally denied to minors. Access to many areas is limited for the guests but after the registration users have free access to all sections of Muushi, besides being able to create posts and topics at will. Other informations about the forum's rules can be found here: Muushi.net forum rules
Linking to copyrighted work
Muushi.net and its members - including the site owner at times - share and distribute links to several copyrighted works from various sources, including paysites, books and digital downloads. The site has various forum sections used by members to provide links to material, and equivalent "Request" forum sections, where works can be requested.
The site's moderators claim there is a private DNP list, that the DMCA protocol is followed, and that claims made through the Report feature or to the above email will be resolved. This has been proven to be true once material has been reported, though there appears to be no indication of assertiveness or active removal of such links when they haven't been reported. Additionally the offending thread is not removed but simply moved to a "special" part of the site where few members have access.
December 15th 2010, Muushi.net owner ship will transferred over to LeonFox of U-18chan and reopen. There will be changes made to rules of the site to avoid further legal issues. The site will be set to reopen in late December early January. -LeonFox
