theyasminshow (1 day ago) #14303796Ohh right, so the question is, does the "Japanese franchise and/or manufacturer" rule apply to goods or just figures?

that is in the FAQ.

For figures, either jp origin or jp manufacturer
For goods, jp origin, any manufacturer
For media, jp origin, jp manufacturer only

A rule certainly forgotten by many, even Mod ^^ encyclopedia #108214 (I didn't know either ^^)
I suppose it could be extend like the figures, Japanese origin or manufacturer.

Makes sense, I changed it.

hikaridranz (1 day ago) #14290670FAQ on adding goods: "Any object with the head of a character/vehicle/object coming from one or more Japanese anime/manga/movies/books/shows/video-games/history/pop-icons."
I think there's plenty of non-Japanese goods in the db. Should they be deleted or can they stay ._. I think many are still going to add them (I made that mistake before too...)

Just a quick suggestion:

There are two Classifications with the same name, 'Stamp', which can be confusing:
encyclopedia #32233 - Stamp as in what you use to imprint a pattern via ink

encyclopedia #102292 - Stamp as in what you place on an envelope to pay for mailing

I'd suggest that the latter one be renamed 'Postage Stamp', to disambiguate the two. (There's also far fewer items in that category to redo.)

Just thought I'd pass it along, and this seemed like perhaps maybe a good place to do so.

If they are one-off characters that don't really have any other merch tied to them (so basically they're just poster girls for one image) then a title should be OK. Please send me or another MOD a PM with these entries in question though before you start changing everything. I'm more than willing to continue changing stuff to the Title field too, I did quite a big initial sweep but there's a lot more doll entries and some miscellaneous GKs that need work.


Roger, I'll give you a howl if and when I find them again, pretty sure some of them I've seen actually have the magazine name as origin too instead of original character. This is pretty much hentai magazine poster girls what I know.

BloodFlower (13 days ago) #14057846<snip>It seems to go both ways on this since there are some characters that don't have original character in the field but others that do. For example all of these do not:

encyclopedia #88634
encyclopedia #88635
encyclopedia #29570
encyclopedia #10568
encyclopedia #6121
encyclopedia #15673

I wouldn't mind adding a "Mascot Character" origin since that would conveniently group everything together that doesn't have an official origin. This is a big decision though so I hope for more staff input.

BloodFlower (13 days ago) #14057846My last question is about original characters, I've seen a lot of original characters who are like poster girls for magazines and such that have their own character entry. Is it okay to just clean them up together with any other original character with a character entry so they all have titles to fit with the rules?If they are one-off characters that don't really have any other merch tied to them (so basically they're just poster girls for one image) then a title should be OK. Please send me or another MOD a PM with these entries in question though before you start changing everything.

SerpentyleTorc (10 days ago) #14118671As for original characters who may have more than one figure based on them that aren't just variants, some sort of unification is helpful too. Whether it be a character entry, or just the same titleIn this case you would keep the title the same or as similar as possible. You can read a clarification of the title field here, we eliminated original characters with character entries quite a while back: (mfc link)
