Clarification(s)
Regarding the Draft Tool
Note: Entries must still have the minimum requirements to be added as an entry, with or without the Draft option selected. Abuse in this way will result in Database privileges being revoked.


July 2015July 2015Update(s) 19 July 2015

Picture Guidelines:

Official** - Pictures provided by manufacturers (promotional pictures and official blog pictures) and major webshops (promotional pictures only). e.g. GSC, Alter, AmiAmi, Mika-tan, etc. No small/3rd party sources are allowed - wait until the official manufacturer or major website uploads the photos.

Chan** - Pictures "stolen" from the Internet. e.g. Figure/GK, 2chan, Akiba Hobby, Blogs, etc. and all social media photos (Twitter, FB, etc.). Exception: doujinshi artists and garage kit circles.

Note: All pictures henceforth will be monitored following this rule. If you have older pictures violating this rule we would appreciate it if you could change them but you won't be in trouble because they are still in the old format.

About Sources:

Pages where the picture(s) can be found. A general web address of a source page for pictures, such as shop web addresses is accepted. However, it is preferred a full or more detailed source is given to the actual page, where the picture can be found. No direct linking to an image using a .jpg, .png, .gif, etc. file extension.

[ext link ] - Ok, but not ideal

Update(s) 25 July 2015

Doujin Goods
Doujin goods are not allowed except the ones where proof of online sale within Japan is provided.


September 2015September 2015Update(s) 29 September 2015

Not really an update per say, but a clarification on use of the title field from (mfc link)

FAQAbout titles: Title is NOT a required field! Must be used for:
• Book/CD titles.
• Objects (e.g. Haruhi's School Uniform).
• Generic characters (e.g. Neko #1).
• Original characters that do not need an encyclopedia entry.

"Objects" refers to anything that is not living. This includes any household object (e.g. Re-Ment items) and tools used by a character such as a weapon, vehicle, accessory, etc.
Exceptions: Mecha entries (from Gundam, Mazinger, etc.), robots with synthetic feelings or some form of personality (R2D2, Chii, etc.), or objects with a "soul" or physical/psychic connection to a character (Nanoha's staff, Jojo stands, etc.)

"Generic Characters" and "Original Characters" are similar where they may have one or a few entries (sometimes with color variants) tied to a name. Use this on original character garage kits, dolls without a specific origin (e.g. many Pullip and Volks dolls), or figures/items that do not need an entry.
Examples: item #84989, item #55728, item #105036 Exceptions are made on a case-by-case basis.

We realize there are many items in the database violating this criteria so if you come across any please feel free to PM a staff member or alert an entry and we will correct it/them. As always use your best judgement and if you have any questions contact a MOD or ADM before adding an entry. Thank you!

January 2016January 2016Update(s) 17 January 2016

New database field: Events

The purpose of this field is to specify which event a figure or item was sold at. Entries that have this information are most likely Limited, Exclusive, or Limited + Exclusive because they are only available at these events. This feature is located on the "Add an entry" page underneath the material field and before the title field:

View spoilerHide spoilerhttp://i.imgur.com/fbmVS1C.png

Only use this feature for items that are sold at events. In other words there is no need to add a laundry list of events to prototypes that travel from festival to festival (e.g. sculpts from popular manufacturers such as Orchid Seed).

Drop-down tab meanings:

Exhibition - event where vendors and individuals sell items (e.g. Wonder Festival, Comic Market, San Diego Comic Con, etc.)
Sale - A special event where an item is sold that cannot be found anywhere else (e.g. Gift Winter Campaign, fan shops, etc.)
Auction - Event tailored to auctioning off a specific item or items (e.g. exclusive doll auctions)
Lottery - Event where an item can be obtained by chance through purchase of tickets, store credits, etc.

The encyclopedia has also been updated. You can find all current events in our database here: (mfc link) Please be careful when adding a new entry - search by the full name first. If the event goes by another name (e.g. Wonder Festival 2014 [Summer] also goes by WF2014S) you may add it as an alias. As always abusing the encyclopedia function may result in a temporary or permanent ban.

Keep in mind this is a new database feature so it may be adjusted and information still needs to be added to the FAQ. We still have a number of kinks to work out so if you are having trouble or have an idea please post in the Help or Suggestions thread.

Regarding Database Rules:

x Unknown manufacturers will no longer be accepted. Note: This rule does not apply retrospectively.
x Generic objects/character note clarified:
FAQNo generic objects/characters. An item will be deemed generic if it has no name or origin. This extends to blank dolls and parts designed for customization purposes. If a doll/figure is designed to be blank for artistic purposes, the item will not be considered generic. eg. figma archetypes. Exceptions: Re-Ment, items falling in the Accessories category.

Update to community guidelines #6 - Moderate yourself

• Do not post excessive amounts of comments. Eg. Welcome messages on new user accounts, multiple store sales links on entries, etc. Spam may result in a temporary or permanent comment ban.

From (mfc link)

EDIT (so there isn't a double post haha)

Clarification about garage kits:

• Garage Kits must have a Circle listed and confirmed sales at an event or mail order.

This means that no exhibited prototypes or sculpts without a confirmed release date are allowed. This also includes kits that were intended to be sold but could not be due to licensing problems, prototypes where the sculptor missed the deadline, etc. This ruling is retroactive so if you see a prototype, do research on it, and find out it was never sold or wasn't sold at a certain festival please alert it so staff can remove the entry. We ask you to please do your research before alerting these types of entries - researching takes a while so if you prepare everything beforehand it will make the alert much easier to solve.

Not really an FAQ update (it may become part of one later?) but more of a site update.

You may now add comments/memos/notes to entries after you finish editing them. Please use this feature when significant information has changed, to cite sources and/or to clarify information for existing and upcoming figures and items (e.g. providing a website or image link during festival time linking to release info). This field is currently not mandatory for all changes but the more information you provide the better.

After you edit an entry a new page will show up. Click "Nothing to Add" if you do not want to add a note to your changes.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v355/ChikoSohma/UQ9iA4r_zps6x6ogvrx.jpg
Details of your changes can be found under the History of an item. If you click "Details" it will show you the old information as well as the new information. Your text memo will be the first thing that comes up in the details section under "Editnote."

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v355/ChikoSohma/FSXn24q_zpscs5xjsdf.jpg

NOTE: If you edit an entry and then edit it again right away your edit notes will be lost. This only happens when multiple edits are made in a short time period so please take care when using this feature.

^ Memo note disappearance has been taken care of by kuma and should no longer happen.

This may or may not be added to the FAQ later but it is a change.

There is a new Encyclopedia field named "Mascot Character" encyclopedia #112762

This entry was created because some mascot characters had no proper origin and others were linked under the "Original Character" origin.

A mascot is any character representing a real-life company, team, school, brand, or organization. This includes shop mascots such as encyclopedia #10568, sports team mascots such as encyclopedia #10177, and government prefecture mascots such as encyclopedia #69678. It does not include fictional character mascots or mascot costumes in a series (e.g. encyclopedia #70955), those entries should remain linked to their anime/manga/game series.

Only use this field when there is no other dominant origin. For example encyclopedia #3887 and encyclopedia #4077 are mascots of Disney and Nintendo but they are often tied up in other origins. If you are unsure if the mascot you are adding to the database needs a new origin or should use the "Mascot Character" origin please send me or another staff member a PM, thank you.

Adding Media

Media released in Japan (Japanese releases only).
Do not split the bundled media from the main media.
Unknown will not be accepted as a Publisher/Label/Developer.
If adding an event, ensure it is added in full eg. Wonder Festival, Comic Market (see also 'Event' options).
Explicit NSFW gallery photos are prohibited. This includes doujinshi and artbook sample pages, official eroge screenshots, etc. Artistic nudity is permitted by exception on a case-by-case basis.

"Crop only a SFW section for NSFW covers" has been added to the games, music and videos Rules&Recommendations (was previously only available for books).

From (mfc link)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Why is this change occurring?

Recently there was an influx of explicit NSFW doujinshi sample material involving children. Although technically this did not violate any guidelines and we do not have clearly defined rules against underage looking characters, staff is in consensus that this type of explicit material should not be cross-posted onto MFC when it can easily be found elsewhere (e.g. Toranoana, Melonbooks, etc.).

Removing these types of images is a matter of protection for MFC and its users: the material violates Google Adsense terms, hosting terms, and could cause issues if found in users’ caches.

After further investigation both administrators and moderators agreed that all explicit NSFW gallery photos in the media category, including those involving adult characters, will be prohibited. This rule is considered retroactive as of this post so if you find NSFW media material please send a staff member a PM (preferable method if you find a lot of images) or alert the entry and we will delete the images in question.

What about the main image for a database entry?

Most doujinshi, artbook, eroge, etc. main images will still be allowed. This rule prohibits additional explicit images from being added to the gallery. If an image is extremely 18+ (i.e. not artistic nudity) and involves clearly underage characters in graphic or questionable positions, please double-check with a staff member before uploading the main photo. We may ask you to use a SFW or censored photo instead. Please be sure to crop a SFW thumbnail.

What is considered artistic nudity?

Artistic nudity means that nudity is used in a relatively tasteful, non-explicit way. This may or may not include some kind of censoring. Any imagery involving youths (babies, toddlers, children) will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

*Persons posing in a way that exposes the body but is not pornographic. E.g. picture #1607215, picture #1605180, picture #1606180 = OK
*Persons in a photo involved in explicit sexual positions and/or acts (alone or with others) = NOT OK

Thanks everyone for your cooperation.
