    • Clarifying How To Use the Report Feature   06/29/20

      Hello. I have noticed a great deal of confusion regarding how to use the report feature and what is expected regarding reports, so I am making a clarification announcement to users who may be unfamiliar with how the report feature works. Please note we have this rule regarding reports: 16.  Do report. Do not make frivolous reports (such as "I don't like this person"). Frivolous reports will result in a warning and possible ban. a. When reporting, please give a reason. Reports citing what rule the post is breaking and giving some information are way more valuable and will get the issue resolved faster. (Reports with no explanations sometimes require mods to go through and skim the entire thread to find out what's going on. Please save us time if you can). b. Don’t waste the mods’ time. Report people for breaking the rules, otherwise don’t report. [Rules in their entirety can be found here.] We also have a wonderful tutorial on how to use the report feature created by one of our former moderators which you can find here. In essence, we enforce the rules as they are written. In a rare occasion there may not be a direct violation but the user is still conducting themselves inappropriately and how we handle that is up to the moderators discretion. We do our best. We also encourage you to use the report feature to report posts that have been edited down to nothing or if you double posted and would like your double post hidden. Also, please note that we do not provide updates on reports. We get far too many to be able to keep up with every one. You are welcome to message a moderator to ask about your report, but please know that we cannot and will not divulge any information on whether we banned the user you are reporting. Simply that we have taken appropriate action. I hope this helps provide further clarification on how to use the report feature. Should you have any questions not clear in these instructions, please feel free to message me or Nyx. Thank you. *Please allow up to 3 business days (as we tend to be slower on weekends) for a response and for reports to be cleared.

So I found this girl while I was on Instagram. She's from Sweden but her parents are Kurdish. She lives in the UK.

Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/mikan.mandarin/
Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbQIHySegAR0GlGak3_104w

What interested me was the fact is the hashtags she uses on her posts

She also sponsors a lot of her posts. 

She said before that she can't get into kpop but like the music. She also said before that she used to watch anime that she doesn't watch it anymore. 

She also sings

She doesn't seem problematic to me, just a little weebish maybe? 

Small summary (as of April 2020)

- quit Bunka during her second year, citing depression, financial woes, burnout, and stress
- seems to have poorly thought out her undergraduate degree plans, having chosen an expensive school (Bunka is over 1m a year), and is now left with no higher education
- is continuing with Youtube and has seemingly no plans beyond being an influencer
- is also continuing to live in Japan with no other plan, instead of returning to Europe, where there are options for her to get a free education
- is now having visa issues due to dropping out of school, and needs to find a new visa ASAP
- moving in with Yasu, who she's been dating for about a month, because her apartment is too cramped
- getting a cat...
- previously dated Hiro, who dumped her to go to the US (apparently)
- dating Yasu, who had a gf then left said gf for Mikan (and he himself is a whole bag of problems, see first post on page 254 for a part of it)
- even more proof that she attempted to get into escorting/ sex work apart from her foray into findom (see page 259), which isn't an issue in itself, but she played down these attempts earlier in this thread
- asked for her last name to be blanked on screenshots from the findom site, but it's easily searchable elsewhere...
- was a major weeaboo as a teenager (which in itself isn't an issue) but her yellow fever has carried on until now
- attached her real name to her attempts at sex work
- lied about the amount of weight she lost (claims she lost 8cm around her waist which an impossible amount to lose without some serious change in appearance), likely an exaggeration of some small amount of actual weight loss

I think she's just a rich gurl that buys everything she wants, she also does photoshoots every 2 seconds. I know that she edits lots her pics.

Look at the skin colour difference

Imo she is cute, and I even want to see a tutorial on her makeup. She seems unproblematic but I'm wondering if she ever goes outside unless it's for pictures.

Also new Instagram post!

One time I insta dmed her complimenting her and she was really rude and acted like I had shit talked her? Maybe she's just a very stand offish person but I used to follow her but not since she did that

I think she's okay? The skin color changes was probably because of camera360 or line camera auto edits; if your skin is tan the app will brighten your skin automatically. Just changing the "brightness" setting of your photos using line camera with no intention of lightening ur skintone at all, will whiten your skin. 

 

Well idk but in her latest pics her skin looks whiter + you cant see the thing" in the chin   Its like :|

they were dms from an account I deleted (sorry :/) but basically I told her I thought her nose was unique and pretty and she thought I was being sarcastic I guess? She took unique as an insult. Later she said she was stressed though, but she was initially just so rude that I ended up not being a fan of hers anymore

I don't know anything about her, but she's always one of the top posts in the koreanfashion hashtag and it bothers me because her style isn't kfashion at all LMAO Picky of me, I guess, but other than that I just don't think she's very special? She looks like any other white girl who's in her kawaii phase.

There is stuff going on with her nose. The shoop is strong, in every pic her nose is different..? Her chin too?

Yeah she looks like every other girl in the west trying that sexy-cute trend that's been going on, on IG lately.

BTW did she shoop her neck? lol looks like a giraffe

I find a lot of her photos cringy. I can't put my finger on exactly why, but most of them come off as tryhard and awkward to me. A lot of her poses are unflattering and a little off, like she's trying to copy poses she sees online but doesn't know how to angle her body to make them work. It's also pretty offputting how every post of hers is an advertisement. It comes off as really ungenuine and I wonder how much she's being paid to endorse all these aliexpress resellers.

I've seen this pose so much with those 'ulzzang' models so often. I think she is copying ulzzang models and anime characters.

Overall she seems like a try-hard.
