(This message will be edited/updated from time to time)

This is a general guideline to those who wish to add any particular drama, artiste, picture, or feature artiste to the database. Future updates of this website will depend largely on user contributions, so do read carefully before any submission.

Information on dramas can often be found on the official tvstation websites (like www.fujitv.co.jp and www.tbs.co.jp). It helps alot if you understand Japanese.

Currently there is no automatic way to do all these (not yet! Bleah) so all new information and pictures should be posted in the Corrections/Additions to Drama Database thread.

The following lists the information required for each contribution, as well as their respective explanations and requirements.

General Guidelines

Names
All artiste and character names must start with the family name followed by given name.
e.g. Sakai Noriko instead of Noriko Sakai

Dates
All dates submitted must adhere to YYYY-MM-DD (that is, 23 June 2003 should be 2003-06-23)

Pictures
Generally, your pictures should be large and clear. However, refrain from sending me humongous Google file attachments. If there's really a need, leave me a PM and I'll make arrangements separately.

Nope, no more. Users tend to abuse it by repeatedly clicking on their favorite drama/artiste to rig the "views". It wastes bandwidth and $$$.

Well, a visitor's IP address may change.
Some people even write in complaints that the number doesn't jump when they try to click on it again and again. Bang Head

Anyway, its not an accurate measure, so I've taken it out. Saves on many problems. Yeah

Oh ancient double toothpicks!

I should've put that in the subject field for my E-mails/PMs to you.

But Genma, did you get my E-mail and PM about eltinators account yet?

I assume that you got the PM already since it's not in my Outbox. Either that, or you deleted it.

Maybe I'll try and send you another one.

Not sure where to post this. Is there a place to ad people missing from a drama. Example Kago Ai was in Kochira Hon Ikegami Sho. She is mentioned in the profiles for Kochira Hon Ikegami SHo 2003, 3, and 4 but not the orginal. Who should people go about notifying the mods to add someone??? Confused I am sure there is a thread I am just not sure which one...

J-movies are typically posted in the J-Ent forum.

Movies that are directly related to existing dramas can be included in the same drama thread, I think... If anyone thinks otherwise, lemme know. Smile
