alazif03 (3 days ago) #38750363Hi!
I just added this item: ITEM #746801
As version I adde: "Racing Miku 2017 ver." (to have it linked to the RC Miku 2017 items) and "SUZUKA 10 HOURS Ver."
Should I also add "Spa Support Ver." since the illustration was drawn for the Spa race? I don't think so, the t-shirt obviously refers to an other race but I'm not sure.
Thanks for Mods advice.


You only add in what the shirt is advertised with, so even the racing miku 2017 is not right.
If you want all racing miku 2017 linked together use the racing miku 2017 tag.

I made these entries ENTRY #139602 back then but looking back at it I wonder if it shouldn't have been just one entry instead?

BloodFlower (22 days ago) #37958915Sometimes these things happen, that a smaller company is responsible for the manufacturing but is not credited even on official items. It's most common when the licence holders commissions other companies for items, best example would be items bundled in game editions as they are most of the times actually made by someone else than the game distributor (nowadays it's more common to actually credit them on the box, but it's not always the case anyways). For cases like my example, the distributor is usually credited as manufacturer (since the "true" manufacturer can't be found) so if you find out something similar with your item then use the distributor instead. But if you can't find either then it's sadly not allowed in the database.

Yeah, I was already afraid the item would not be allowed, but it's interesting as I've come across more 'undisclosed' items locally on EU licenses and they make for an interesting research. :)

If you're interested and have time, maybe you can help me here. :) The main shop selling this specific t-shirt is: www.large.nl/p/... So I would not be surprised if it was an EMP/Large exclusive, as the other places where I saw it for sale were resellers and auction sites.

AshuriiKareshi (22 days ago) #37959884Thank you for your answer ^^
Seen as there's no rule on it could I ask for your opinion on this. Ichinose Guren, 16 Sai no Hametsu has 1 acrylic charm that can been seen here mobile.twitter..... I havent added it to the database because I'm not sure whether to put the origin as normal Owari no Seraph then put in the title, version or further information it's from Ichinose Guren story.
I would personally like to keep everything under the Owari no Seraph origin but I'm just not sure what to do if 1 or 2 goods items are made from one of the novels -.-'


I think I already answered that question with my original comment but here goes: I would add them under the light novel origin as they're marketed as such.

BloodFlower (22 days ago) #37958915This is based on how I do it now, so don't take this as standard:
In general I follow the rule, if it got goods (i.e. items marketed with the logo and licence of the side origin) then it should have it's own origin no matter how I usually add them. I normally don't add smaller media adaptations as their own origin (for example licence games or a spin off manga) as it would just be one entry linked to that origin. If it's a major entry to the main series, like a prequel or sequel (like Tokyo Ghoul RE is a sequel of the original manga) then I'll add a new origin.

AshuriiKareshi (27 days ago) #37728599Just a quick question. Is there some kind of rule to when a new origin is needed and when it not needed?

This is based on how I do it now, so don't take this as standard:

Maakie (22 days ago) #37958345I recently bought an officially licensed Yu-Gi-Oh! shirt and wanted to add it to the database, but...it's a bit of a strange one.

To answer short: all entries must have a manufacturer, unknown is not a viable manufacturer.

Long answer: Sometimes these things happen, that a smaller company is responsible for the manufacturing but is not credited even on official items. It's most common when the licence holders commissions other companies for items, best example would be items bundled in game editions as they are most of the times actually made by someone else than the game distributor (nowadays it's more common to actually credit them on the box, but it's not always the case anyways).

I recently bought an officially licensed Yu-Gi-Oh! shirt and wanted to add it to the database, but...it's a bit of a strange one.

Inside the shirt and on the tag it only mentiones 'Yu-Gi-Oh! Kazuki Takahashi 1996'. The website where I bought it from (100% trustworthy website with only licensed goods), advertised it as 'manufacturer undisclosed'. Other sites where I saw it for sale also listed 'undisclosed' as brand or listed 'Yu-Gi-Oh!'.

Looking at the material and style of the shirt and the fact that it is sold in what seems the EU only, I would guess it's manufactured by one of the 'budget' European 'nerd goods' manufacturers, but it's weird how it remains so secretive!

So, about an item like this...is an item with 'hidden' manufacturer allowed in the database, or does 'undisclosed' also count as 'unknown'? *edit* And if I were allowed to add it, should I add it as 'undisclosed' or with the franchise name? I would say an entry for 'undisclosed' makes the most sense, because more items like this exist.
