How do I add items to my collection?

The main service provided by MFC is the possibility to keep track of your collection online. To get started and start listing your collection, you should start by getting familiar with our item database.

First, go on the search/browse page and look for the items of your collection by typing keywords in the appropriate fields. For instance, to find Haruhi figures manufactured by Max Factory, type 'Suzumiya Haruhi' in the Characters field (please note that Japanese names should always be written Lastname+Firstname) and type 'Max Factory' in the Companies field.

Click the Search button.

Click on your item thumbnail (if you have troubles distinguishing which item is which from the thumbnails, try to change the display mode - Diaporama mode is a good option to have a better view of the results) and you will land on the item page.

How to write?

Each word that is not a particle must start with a upper case letter. Ex: right way to write is Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu, wrong ways could be suzumiya haruhi no yuuutsu, Suzumiya Haruhi No Yuuutsu.

Do not use full upper case words. Ex: right way to write is Gainax, wrong ways could be GAINAX.


How to romanize?

Please use the Hepburn method and the Wāpuro variation for long vowels. Fancy characters shall be removed.

Particles: へ is e, は is wa and を is o
Long vowels: 大きい is Ookii, 東京 is Toukyou, etc.

Ex: right ways to romanize are Kyou, Yuuutsu, Boku o mite, Toukyou e iku, Boku wa dare desu ka. Wrong ways could be Kyo, Kyō, Kyô, Kyoh, Yuutsu, Yūutsu, Yûutsu, Boku wo mite, Tokyo he iku, Boku ha dare desu ka.

Exception: Character's names having an official romanization should be named following this official romanization. Ex: Tohsaka Rin, Tohno Minagi.


How to name?

Names have to be original Japanese names. English, French and whatever translations/adaptations should be added as aliases. Ex: right way to name is Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuuutsu, wrong way could be The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya.

Japanese names will be written Last name + First name Ex: right way to name is Fujibayashi Kyou, wrong way is Kyou Fujibayashi.

Please add official Japanese names (in Japanese) in the 名前 field. An official Japanese name can be written in full caps romaji if that is how the Japaneses decided to write it (it can also be a mix of romaji and kana, and so on).

Please note that there must be a space between name kanji. Ex: right way to name is 藤林 杏, wrong way is 藤林杏.

Western names will be written First name + Last name. Ex: right way to name is Jack Skellington, wrong way is Skellington Jack.

About descriptions

Always give your source. If your text is 100% original, sign your text.

Descriptions can be formatted using BBCode.


About images

Upload official images. Avoid fanarts (if you have no choice but to use a fanart always link to your source in the entry description). 1280x1280, 500kB max.

Important: myanimelist.net bordered images are ugly (it will take you two seconds to find nice images by googling Japanese names).

How do I add an entry to the encyclopedia?

MyFigureCollection does not really host a character/origin/artist/etc. encyclopedia that's why the only way to add an entry to the encyclopedia is through the item addition page. Indeed to be allowed to be added to our encyclopedia, an entry (character/origin/artist/etc.) should be linked to at least one item (figures/goods/etc.). Specifically, to add an entry to the encyclopedia, you have to first find an item that could be linked to this entry. Then when you add this item you'll be able to add the new entry at the same time.

Here is the page to add an item.

Orphan entries are regularly deleted.

How can I create a copy of an entry?

To create a copy of an entry (useful when adding several similar entries) you must be allowed to edit this entry. Go on the page of the entry you want to copy, click on the Edit link, change the information that needs to be, select a new picture (required), tick the Save as box (don't forget or you'll edit the entry without creating a copy) and click Submit.

Why are some entries marked as 'Counterfeit'?

Sadly, an entry is marked as Counterfeit when unscrupulous people have made fake version(s) of the item. Those fake versions are usually really bad copies of the original items that are sold at a lower price. They are often made with bad quality materials that can be dangerous for you health. Buying fake items is: hurting yourself, hurting the anime/manga industry and your favorite authors, being scammed, making mafia live and exist.

What are orphan entries?

Orphan entries are Encyclopedia entries, which have no figure or any other item associated with it. These entries are usually caused by the removal of items, which were not allowed in the database and where a new Encyclopedia entry was created.

In order to keep our database managable and save storage space, so called orphan entries will possibly get alerted and subsequently removed or may be removed without alerting on routine checks by members of staff.

What is a list?

List is a feature that lets you create your own personal lists of items such as list of items you wish to trade, list of items you are looking for, list of items that should be in the ideal collection, etc. Possibilities are infinite. You can share your list with everyone or only with your friends or make it private.

A list also allows you to start receiving notifications via email, if an item in your list is being sold or hunted by someone. These notifications are a separate feature from your account email notifications.

What does 'NSFW' stand for and when is it used?

NSFW stands for Not Safe For Work.

One picture should be marked as NSFW if it contains nudity or questionable/explicit content (please note that those notions can be very subjective, so please respect moderators' judgement when they mark/unmark your pictures as NSFW).

If you're over 18 and if you don't mind this kind of pictures, you can disable the safe mode.
