What is included onthis page?

We will be discussing who we are, what we do, parentalcontrols, teacher related questions, publisher and media related questions andother topics in the form of a Q&A.

 

What is Jappleng?

Jappleng is a unique (and only) Social Edutainment Platformfor the Japanese enthusiast community. We provide lessons in the Japaneselanguage, Culture and way of life for those interested. We believe that acombination of education, social interaction and entertainment is key to a successfullearning path and have combined them all to create what is known as Jappleng orJappleng University.

 

Is Jappleng /Jappleng University a For-Profit Corporation or Institution?

Not at all, while Jappleng may one day become for-profit tomaintain our online presence, at the present time, we are only volunteers withno physical location.

 

How many people areworking on Jappleng?

There is only one person developing and maintaining thewebsite and services but the community builds the content freely and openly.

 

How will this impactthe overall quality, security, and safety of those visiting Jappleng?

I am a full-stack developer with over 12 years of industryexperience. I have great knowledge in providing quality and security for softwarethat I write however it would be silly to say that my work or anyone’s work canprevent all breeches. I am proud to say that I consistently spend timeimproving security on the site in every manner as possible.

 

Is Jappleng Free touse?

Our goal is to make Jappleng as free as possible to as manypeople as can be. While in the future there is plans to have microtransactionsfor premium tutor-lessons and perhaps other endeavors, we presently have nomethod to accept payment, nor do we charge for anything. If you do wish tocontribute, you may contact me directly and perhaps I could accept Paypal or Patreonas the server fees and other costs are very high.

 

How does Japplenghandle harassment and ERP?

We take pride in protecting our users, whether they areguests, or they are members of the site. They are like family to us and justlike family, we mean to do everything we can to protect them. We haveestablished our Terms of Service, Privacy Policy, Cookies, Letter to Parentsand Teachers (the page you are on), have included numerous moderation featuresand a comprehensive system that is continuously improved upon. We want to makeJappleng a safe and enjoyable place for everyone and because of that we doeverything we can to resolve disputes and suspend / remove toxic behaviors thatmay occur. While some J-Communities may permit ERP (erotic role-play), it isstrictly not permitted here. S.P.A.M. is also not permitted and not taggingposts appropriately will also likely lead to suspension of accounts.

 

Are there parentalcontrols?

Yes, in the user settings panel, it is possible to configurewhat sections you permit your child to view. For instance, if you do not wishthem to gain access to J-Spot Social but wish to permit them on the educationand Clubs section, you may toggle this. To avoid the child to override thesesettings, a unique PIN and E-Mail can be enabled to further secure the account.Lastly, the maturity setting permits the user/parent to set what kind ofcontent should be censored.

 

I am a Teacher orTutor, what can I do for Jappleng?

We hope that Jappleng becomes widespread and used throughoutclassrooms around the world. Presently there are a few schools that are usingJappleng for references and for its lessons. We have also been featured in afew Universities which is a big deal to us. If you wish to use our lessons /resources, you are more than welcome to if it’s for non-profit reasons.For-profit reasons will need to contact us such as for Publishing. However, wedo love to hear it when a school/teacher uses our materials, it tells us thatwe are doing a good job and should keep moving forward!

 

I would like to makelessons for Jappleng / my classroom

That is exciting to hear and we would like to talk moreabout this! There is indeed money to be made for tutors and a means forteachers to easily create lessons for students. Please send us an e-mail byusing our Contact form to learn more.

 

Is JapplengEncrypted?

Yes, important information is encrypted using multiplefactor and secret methods. Additionally, we only permit HTTPS access to thesite, meaning we require a successful handshake connection between the user andour website. User credentials are not stored in plain text, nor is it stored incookies. We also encrypt our cookies.

 

What kind of data iscollected?

Members are required to enter their username, e-mail,password and date of birth but nothing else. However, all activity performed onthis website / service is monitored for both Quality Assurance and Securityreasons. We have no plans to sell personal information to third parties.

 

What about GoogleTrackers?

We presently use Google Analytics to track visitor’sbehaviors on our website, however the information is completely anonymous andis not tied to any individual account. Users may decide to opt-out of this ifthey wish. In the future, we will not use any third-party trackers.Additionally, this information helps us identify what sections people love themost and what sections need improvement.

 

Are cookies bad?

Not our cookies! They are required for users to staylogged-in, otherwise there is no way for us to know who you are. Well, thereare alternatives but Cookies is the way we chose to do it. To learn more aboutour cookies, click here!

 

What is the agerequirements on this website?

The requirement by US law is 13 or over, however it isimportant to be reminded that Jappleng is a community just like any socialnetwork that you may know and as such, people may troll, harass, and postthings that may not be appropriate despite it being against our rules. (Theywill get punished if caught) As a result, we recommend that you enable maturitysettings and permit only allowable sections as you feel comfortable.

 

Can Clubs be Used inconjunction of school clubs?

Yes! That is the purpose! We would love to see moreintegration with real school clubs using Club Jappleng! We are also presentlyworking on a school club itinerary and printable club materials.
