Do i need to signup to post?

No, you can post without signup/login. It is an optional choice, if you signup you won't have to worry about repeated validations. That's it.

What is bookmarks section?

It allows you to save those posts locally which you liked, it doesn't require any login. It is stored locally on your machine and no such data is sent to the server. I thought it maybe useful, because it's something i felt imageboards were lacking. Currently maximum 50 bookmarks are allowed

Note: For both bookmarks / hidden posts, you can only reply to posts which are from general board, due to technical reasons. Created posts will be added in /general/ board.

What data is saved during signup?

Your username, location value you chose during sign up (state/country) (Note: not actual location) and password. Your username isn't shown on posts/replies you create. You can choose any other name during posting either.

How do i bookmark a post and how to access it?

You can bookmark a post by clicking on the dropdown option in the post header and selecting 'bookmark' option.
You can view your bookmarks by click on the bookmark link in the nav menu.

Can I hide a post?

You can hide a post by clicking on the dropdown option in the post header and selecting 'hide' option. Like bookmarks, 50 hidden posts are allowed currently.

How to use the custom emojis?

While in post-creation mode, pressing the '~' will show you emoji suggestions based on emoji code starting with ':' before '~' you have entered. You can close the emoji suggestions by typing '$'. For further details refer to the emoji page.

What is a Trip-Code and how to use it?

Trip-Codes are like pseudo username-password combo which allow you to associate certain identifier hash value to a certain username. You can use trip codes by using following format in the username input field of the form, username#password. It will show you the output something like this, username !HashValue in the username field of the posts.
