1.0 INTRODUCTION
This guide is not intended to be a replacement for the forums, the wiki, or any other instructional material.
Rather, it is a supplement to help direct people to the information they need. 
If your question has not been answered by what is provided here, leave me a message in the thread. Thank you.

1.1 STARTING OUT
Q: Help! This is my first thread! What is Sadpanda!?
A: Sadpanda, properly known as exhentai.org, is part of e-hentai.org.

Q: Why do people call it sadpanda?
A: If one goes directly to exhentai, a picture of a sad panda blocks their access.

Q: I hate it! Why is there any need for this? It's so stupid.
A: https://forums.e-hentai.org/index.php?showtopic=25005

Q: What is exclusive to exhentai? Should I even bother?
A: abortion, bestiality, incest*, lolicon, shotacon, toddlercon. If you are not interested in these, you needn't bother.
Incest is still present, it simply can't be directly searched.

Q: I'm not interested in that stuff. Do I even need to sign up for an account?
A: No, you don't have to. You can browse e-hentai and access a lot of galleries without an account.  

Q: Okay, I want in. Should I use ExHentai Easy 2?
A: No, you should not. It's only a matter of time before it will cause you problems.

Q: How do I get in then?
A: https://pastebin.com/nh9RyrUf
Technical details are provided at 1.7 EXHENTAI ACCESS DETAILS. 

Q: Now that I'm waiting to do it, I want to learn more about the galleries.
A: 
https://ehwiki.org/wiki/E-Hentai_Galleries_FAQ
https://ehwiki.org/wiki/E-Hentai_User_Gallery_System

Q: Can I do this on my smart phone/handheld device/tablet/console/TV/etc?
A: Yes, it's the same for almost everything. If you can log in, you can use it. Refer to the Access Guide for more details.   

Q: What can I do to improve my experience in sadpanda threads?
A: Use this script: https://dnsev-h.github.io/x-links/

Q: How do I find the source for an image?
A: Use imgops.com, https://saucenao.com/, the e-hentai file search, and various details that are known.

Q: Is there a difference between doujinshi and manga (for the purpose of e-hentai)?
A: Doujinshi are self-published works that may be original or based on existing works. 
Manga are commercial works serialized in magazines, which may be print or digital.

Q: How do I sort by by how many favorites a gallery has?
A: You can't.

Q: How do I filter by rating?
A: It's in the Advanced Options at the bottom right.

Q: How do I search expunged galleries?
A: It's in the Advanced Options at the bottom left.

1.2 TAGS
Q: Is there a list of tags?
A: Here is a list of the fetish tags, though there are other types : https://ehwiki.org/wiki/Fetish_Listing
Here is the list of master tags that have at least one slave tag: https://e-hentai.org/tools.php?act=taggroup

Where are the new tags or changes to existing tags?
https://ehwiki.org/wiki/new_tags  (more or less)

Q: How do I search for more than one tag at a time?
A: You simply list them out. 
Example: anal tomgirl yaoi

Q: What is namespace and how do I use it?
A: https://ehwiki.org/wiki/namespace
Example: f:dark_skin f:tomboy a:konchiki

Q: How do I do an exact search for a tag?
A: Append a $ at the end of the string. Example: a:jun$  
That will only return results for the artist with the exact name of "jun". 

Q: I only want to see stuff translated into English, how do I do that?
A: Use l:english l:translated 
You can also change the settings to exclude all languages aside from Japanese and English by default.

Q: Where can I check my tagging accuracy?
A: https://e-hentai.org/tools.php?act=taglist&uid={USER ID NUMBER}
Example: https://e-hentai.org/tools.php?act=taglist&uid=2522671
To find your user ID number, go the forum. In the top left corner, it will say: Logged in as: name. 
Click that. Look at the URL. It will say: https://forums.e-hentai.org/index.php?showuser=2522671
The number following showuser is your USER ID NUMBER.

Q: Where can I learn more about tags?
A: https://ehwiki.org/wiki/Tagging_Mechanics  & https://ehwiki.org/wiki/Gallery_Tagging

Q: Is there a tag to show content that is forbidden?
A: Yes, use "forbidden content$" , including the quotes. Be certain to have "Show Expunged Galleries" checkmarked in the Advanced Options.

A: https://ehwiki.org/wiki/currency

Q: Is there a difference between spending credits and gallery points for downloading?
A: Yes, there is a huge difference. Be sure to convert credits to gallery points. Using credits for downloading is inefficient.

1.4 COMMON PROBLEMS & QUESTIONS
Q: Where is the list of common technical issues that users may experience while using e-hentai?
A: https://ehwiki.org/wiki/Technical_Issues

Q: I've been using ExHentai Easy 2, despite being told not to do so! Now it says that my account does not exist!/I only see a blank page! What should I do?
A: Uninstall ExHentai Easy 2. Read the Access Guide.    

Q: How can I stop seeing all this Western stuff?
A: Click on the light green colored Western category to temporarily disable it. 
To permanently disable it, go into the settings and turn it off.

Q: Where has all the wani gone?!
A: It has been removed. It is part of the Do Not Post list, which can be found here: https://forums.e-hentai.org/index.php?showtopic=19797

Q: How do I know whether what I'm looking for was wani or not?
A: Most people probably won't. If you suspect it is wani, go to a site that has wani, such as nhentai or chaika.
If you know who the artist is and/or the magazine it was published in, that would help a lot in determining whether it is wani.

Q: Why can some people see galleries that I can't!?
A: It is likely a regional block or that the artist has complained. As such, the gallery has been removed from public viewing for many.

Q: How do I bypass these blocks?  
A: If it's a regional block, use a VPN. Some US published galleries are blocked in the US. I haven't confirmed anywhere else.  
For all other blocks, the exact way to see them is not known to me and the people who would know aren't going to say.     

Q: What is this 509 bandwidth exceeded that I keep getting?
A: You have exceeded your daily image limit. That can be viewed here: https://e-hentai.org/home.php

Q: Archive and torrent downloads are no longer working for me, what do I do?
A: Log out, clear your cookies, and then sign back in.

Q: There's a person who uploads stuff I don't like. What do I do about it?
A: Do better than that they are doing or learn to accept that which can not be changed.

Q: I'm angry at the e-hentai administration and/or the decisions they've made. What recourse do I have?
A: Aside from becoming part of it, you can go to a different site, make your own site, or find some way to bypass them.
