This page will be used to define and clarify various standards on the database.

Romajization[edit]

Where Japanese names are inputted in Japanese as LAST FIRST, we change the order to FIRST LAST for the romaji version of the name.

Japanese: 泉 こなた (いずみ こなた) (Izumi Konata)
Romaji: Konata Izumi

For long vowels we DO NOT use

  • ū ō ī ē ā

Instead use

  • uu ou ii ee aa

While I prefer to use letter for letter the exact Japanese, in cases where the name has been translated to something different, we will defer to whatever is in common usage. Alternate ways of writing the name can be added as Aliases.

ホロ / Horo / Holo

Moderators can use this tool to auto fix Titles

Character Traits[edit]

The only reason to set Other Char is when a character needs to be excluded from the visual search for a particular reason. Any humanoid character you can index fully should be set to Normal.

Game/Non Anime-Style Animation will be dropped, and instead inherited from the title's Media Type

Images[edit]

Adult sexual content is not allowed. Images that are inappropriate for minors should be flagged as Questionable or NSFW.

Character Tags[edit]

To be used for visual features, and things that can be implied from visual features.
