LesLoue1 day ago#83702745-snip-

Thank you for the reply, it does look like there are some phone grips in there. I will go ahead and use that classification than :3

I do have an adblocker, which now makes sense!

I am not really confident in converting the words to romanize, but I will give it a try. Better start learning now than later, since its required in the title section.

Thank you!

iSkadi1 day ago#83702636Hi guys, I got a few questions to ask.
I just wanted to make sure before I make a new classification.
I don't see Popsockets or Phone Grips in the classification section. The only other entry I see doesn't have an actual classification for it, just the series classification.
ITEM #961398
Or do they go by a different name?

There's ENTRY #87495 for phone rings but it indeed doesn't seem like there's a classification for popsocket-style phone holders. If there's any popsockets in the database I'm guessing they ended up with the Ring Holder classification too.

iSkadi1 day ago#83702636The ISBN code isn't sticking. I took the JAN code and placed it as the ISBN in two cases:
Jan Code: 9784065186411
ITEM #1050147
Jan Code: 9784757567238
ITEM #996606
I read the info on here, but no luck?

You've input the JAN codes correctly/they're being displayed correctly. Do you have an ad-blocker on? If so, that's most likely why you can't see the JAN codes, if you turn it off and refresh the page you should see that everything's good. Apparently that happens because JAN codes are links to CDJapan and they're being picked up as ads, or something like that.

iSkadi1 day ago#83702636Last question. I have been adding the Twisted Wonderland merch into the database, but I wasn't sure how to enter the version type for the clothing style that they wear.
Can I use the english version that have already been translated by the fanbase?
Currently, I see that the Ceremonial Robes where entered as Shikiten Fuku (ITEM #1028806 and ITEM #1047425)
But there are a lot of them that I didn't add the version type to since I wasn't sure if the english name would be okay.
Other clothing versions are "Lab Coat", "Dorm Uniform", and "Gym Uniform" are the ones that currently have merch for them and the product contains the machine translated version of them. For example AmiAmi has Gym uniform as Exercise Outfit.

I would appreciate someone else weighing on this but if you're not sure you probably can't go wrong with using the romazined form of whatever the items' version is in Japanese. (see the first few parts of the Encyclopedia Guidelines). So essentially what was done for the two items you linked. I personally prefer to romanize versions instead of translating them since other fields like media titles are romanize-only. I've seen both methods used though, so I wouldn't be able to say whether translating versions is actually allowed or not.

Kaneel7 days ago#83411669There was definitely a discussion about this a longer while back, i'll try and see if i can find it in the alerts.
The same rules which are used for cosmetics should apply, that they should only be added if they come with a container of some sort which makes them a collectable over your regular band aid printed with some motifs.


Thanks! That would make sense and be consistent with all the candy cans. However the definition for "container" is sorta unclear. Take this one for example: ITEM #1045332 It doesnt seem to have anything but the box made of paper (in picture). Would that be considered a qualified container? If so almost all things have such a container I'd say. XD

Hi,

I have a question about whether bandage like this ITEM #1045332 is allowed in the database. Initially I thought no since the rule states No perishable or single use goods (items you usually dispose of after use).

But then I found some other bandage entries ENTRY #159101

So I wonder if it's within the scope of the database and if yes why it doesnt fall into the quoted rule.

Thank you!

Eccmy1 month ago#81923501Hmmm... Can you please find a good quality picture with both bodies having the head attached on them, just like the 5 other entries in that collection?
(Especially considering that, if ITEM #1031060 you've recently added is to be believed, it looks like she, like the rest of the collection, has an alternate hairstyle head).
If yes, I'd be happy to update the entry with it. Thanks in advance!
Maakie1 month ago#81924337I am unfortunately not able to find better (maybe NEFERE has more luck as they were also able to find the other pictures). ;)
Interesting, the current entry for ITEM #167526 makes it seem like it only comes with one head/hairstyle as well. I doubt it actually does and I expect there to be a second head as well, but can't find any more info or pictures. *edit* Seems like only 1 person on here owns the figure (also the original creator of the entry), I guess we could ask?
I've tried to find a photo of the girl with an alternate head on blogs and auctions (www.mbok.jp/ite..., page.auctions.y..., www.mbok.jp/ite..., grassblog.blog5...) but failed. Looks like it's included only with clear version of the figure.

Maakie1 month ago#81754863Yeah, it's more like a 2-in-1 issue. For reference, other clear version figures are in the database like this: ITEM #16854 . If someone manages to find (official) pictures of the figures I mentioned assembled, it would solve the whole issue, though. ^^''
I think not (but someone please correct me if I'm wrong) as the database rules say:
Music - anime, Japanese video-games, idols and seiyuu related CDs.


My doubt is about the fact that it's a japansese translation of the story, performed by japanese seiyuu and released by a japanese company, so it seems to be in a bit of a grey area. And since it seems that they plan to released a few more similar series, it would be good to decide how we'll proceed with such items.

Also (since it's not a draft), could you make this www.suruga-ya.j... the main picture of ITEM #167526 ? Thanks!
