About ShindanMaker

What is ShindanMaker
It is a website that allows any person to easily create a [comical diagnosis/horoscope] for their own person by simply entering their name. (The original meaning of the word [SHINDAN] as used on this website is that of diagnosis, but it is also used to mean [horoscope]).
How diagnosis results are determined
Shindanmaker works by randomly allocating results in accordance with the [name that was entered]. In other words, it is similar to drawing omikuji (written fortunes). It should be treated as a [caricature diagnosis].
Why are the diagnosis results different depending whether upper case or lower case characters are used?
Diagnosis results are allocated based on the characters used in the name that was entered, and since upper case and lower case letters in the alphabet are recognized as separate letters, the results will also differ.
How many persons have been diagnosed?
The number of [persons which have been diagnosed], which also influences each ranking, is not counted as the number of times a diagnosis is made. Rather, it is counted with several items of information used for such diagnosis. Accordingly, the number of persons which is diagnosed stays the same no matter how many times the same diagnosis is executed. (The number of persons which have been diagnosed is displayed on each page and updated every few minutes. Please note that at times this number does not change immediately.)
If you find a diagnosis violating the Terms of Service
If you find a diagnosis violating the prohibitions of the Terms of Service, please use the report functionality. The bottom of each diagnosis page contains a Report an issue button you can use to submit a report. Diagnoses receiving many reports will be deleted.
Will the name I use when taking a diagnosis be used elsewhere on the site?
This site retains no user names, IP addresses, login information, or other data to determine who accessed or took a diagnosis.
While you can post the results of a diagnosis to Twitter or other social media, justt aking a diagnosis will not cause the results to be logged or published anywhere.

The User Diagnosis section of the site obtains and displays data via the Twitter API and does not internally log or display this information.
While the prior name you entered on the name field for a diagnosis will appear on subsequent visits, this is due to cookies stored locally in your browser; this information is not retained on the site.

Note that when a user logs in or creates a diagnosis, we log the originating IP address. For details, please see our privacy policy.
The tweet button no longer appears
If you have a content blocker (an ad blocker) installed, it may have functionality to block social media buttons, which will cause the tweet button to not appear. Please check your content blocker settings and try again.
My mobile device uses filtering service which block certain pages
If your mobile device has a parental lock on it to filter content, you may be unable to see certain diagnosis pages or lists. If a site contains obscene or violent content, it is flagged as for adults only, and will be filtered.
Content intended for minors or not flagged as adult content will continue to be accessible. If you find that content is filtered, please try another page on the site to see if the issue persists.

I have something I do not know about the diagnosis creation methods

I changed the diagnosis title, but the contents of the title image shown on Twitter (Twitter Card) have not changed
If you Tweet the diagnosis result given by the website, the image that displays the diagnosis title given by the website is shown as a Twitter Card in the Tweet. However, if this title image is shown by Twitter once, it is saved for a short while, so even if you change the diagnosis title, the contents Twitter Card will not be updated. Because of this, if you have changed the diagnosis title, you can change the image using the Card Validator provided by Twitter. If you go to the Card Validator page and enter in and send the relevant diagnosis URL, the Twitter Card image will be updated.
