Renaming

Jump to: navigation, search
An example of a gallery renaming petition that has successfully changed the name of a gallery.

Renaming allows users besides the gallery's uploader to change the name of a user uploaded gallery. Both the Romanized (R) and Japanese (J) fields can be changed. Typically this makes the gallery easier to identify or find via searches.

Process

  • Renaming typically occurs once a petition option reaches 100% power. Votes can exceed 100%.
    • If multiple options exist past 100% the one with the highest percentage will take priority.
    • Votes on a single option are capped at 200%. This cap is raised by if an option over 100% exists but maintains a 100% ceiling from there. e.g. A petition with a 150% option allows for other options to go up to 249%.
  • Users may withdraw or change their vote at any time. Selecting "◯ Blank Vote" will withdraw a vote on that field. Withdrawing votes will cause a gallery to revert to its original name or to the highest option that exceeds 99%.
  • Options left incomplete for more than 7 days are automatically purged.
  • Options with no votes are automatically removed.
  • Ideally a gallery that has not changed should only require 1 renaming at most.

Anatomy of A Gallery Name

Convention Name
The convention where the work was sold. Use shorthand whenever possible (see below). Never applies to [Digital] releases.
Circle Name(s)
The group names under which the artist(s) work. Never to be used on works where a circle is not credited. Artists can work under multiple circles or can change at any time; therefore users should never assume the circle name based on the artist name (and vice-versa).
Artist Name(s)
Writer names are also accepted for more novel-like works but they should never be tagged.
Title(s)
May include its translated name after a vertical bar if the work is translated (e.g. Nurse wo Kanojo ni Suru Houhou | How to Go Steady with a Nurse). Sub-titles should be separated with a hyphen.
Chapter / Volume
Always abbreviated. Includes a space in the R field (e.g. Vol. 8 / 第8巻). Allows for ranges for chapters (e.g. Ch. 1-5 / 第1-5話).
Magazine or Tankoubon Source
The publication source of the scan. For magazines use title and date only. If a magazine title combines English and Japanese (e.g. COMIC 真激) add a space between the English and Japanese portions of the title.
Parody Name(s)
Names of the series being parodied. Most common in Doujinshi galleries. For the R field they are preferred how they are in romaji followed by how they are tagged (e.g. Ah! Megami-sama is preferred over Ah! My Goddess)
Language
Must be the language's equivalent name in English (e.g. [Spanish], [German]). Thai and Vietnamese must include their in-language equivalents ([Thai ภาษาไทย] and [Vietnamese Tiếng Việt]).
Translator(s)
While square brackets are preferred {curly braces} and 【sumistuki】 are also acceptable. They are preferred how the translator writes them (such as on their archive files). Only for use in the R field.
Special Indicator(s)
Decensored, Colorized, Incomplete, Digital, Sample, Textless, etc.

Usage

  • Only known and applicable information should be used. Any unconfirmed information should be left out. New rename petitions can be made to amend any missing information.
  • The primary focus of renaming is adding or correcting major data (e.g. serious spelling mistakes, wrong convention). It is recommended NOT to rename galleries simply to correct minor mistakes in their formatting (e.g. wrong brackets used, improper casing).
  • Multiple entries in any portion must be separated with commas. Translators may also use spaced plus signs.
  • Use Title Casing unless otherwise indicated by the work.
  • In all cases where the colophon and the cover have conflicting information the colophon wins.
    • Additional information from the cover (such as subtitles, possibly English) is to be included in the R field but should only be added to the J field if it is in the colophon as well.
  • If the creator/parody names exceed 3 in number it is preferred to state "Various" / "よろず" instead.
  • Creator names should be written as credited on the work; this is especially the case when a creator's tag is aliased.
  • Languages should only be indicated for translated/rewritten works or wherever such languages would not be expected; e.g. [Japanese] is not needed because it is the default language for most works.
  • Any chapter collection should include the chapter numbers, except complete ones.
  • Leading zeros are only included if they appear explicitly; e.g. "Ch. 7" not Ch. 07", "COMIC1☆3" not "COMIC1☆03".
  • If the translation is released by a group (e.g. Doujin-moe) the group's name takes precedence over that of the translator. Translators who are anonymous or sources that are not official groups (e.g. /a/) should not be credited.
  • A translation of a rewrite is still a rewrite and thus follows that format.

J Field Only

  • For lists in the J field ideographic commas (、) are preferred over batsus (×) and ampersands (&). Ordinary commas are also acceptable; e.g. "大熊狸喜、かん奈" over "大熊狸喜×かん奈".
  • Symbols such as "☆" are mandatory for the J field but are optional for the R field.
  • All caps titles are mandatory for the J but are optional for the R field.
  • Chinese and Korean original works (not translations) use the J field as though it was applicable to them instead of Japanese. Names in these fields must end with "[中国語]" or "[韓国語]" (Chinese and Korean respectively). Their non-romanized titles must be included in the R field as well (post-vertical line if a romanized title exists).

Transliteration

  • Always use revised Hepburn romanization.
    • を as a particle is "o", not "wo".
    • 本 is "Bon" if it follows a noun/pronoun; otherwise it is "Hon".
    • Macrons (ā, ē, ī, ō, ū) should never be used.
    • Commonly accepted occidental words are the exception; e.g. "東京" is "Tokyo" not "Toukyou".
  • Romaji of an English [loan]word should use correct English instead romaji.
    • Examples: "シスター" is "Sister" not "Shisutaa", "ラブ" is "Love" not "Rabu", "メイド" is "Maid" not "Meido", "タクシー" is "Taxi" not "Takushii", "ロリコン" is "Lolicon" not "Rorikon".
    • Shortened or clipped English stays as is.
  • Syllabic N's do not receive any special treatment; e.g. "みんな" is "Minna" not "Min'na" or "Min na"or "Min-na".
  • Kanji representing numbers should be romanized as words, not as numbers; e.g. "九" is "Kyuu" not "9".
  • Use hyphens to separate names/pronouns from honorifics; e.g. "Onii-chan" not "Oniichan".
  • Marus (○) or other censors are to be corrected in the R field if the information being censored is known.

Do NOT

  • Use whitespace characters to blank out a field. This is not the same as a blank name and the petition system does not support blanking fields at the time of writing.
    • If a gallery needs a reversion to a blank state, all ongoing petitions should be withdrawn and the gallery uploader should change the name fields accordingly.
  • Use "同人誌", "同人CG集", "同人ソフトCG", "同人ゲームCG", "アダルトコミック", "フルカラーコミック", "エロ", "コスプレ", "成年コミック", "非エロ", or "総集編"; these are all redundant / irrelevant.
  • Use "Complete", "End", "Finished", or any other variants to indicate the end of a series or a work's completeness.
  • Use "Original" or "オリジナル" as a parody. This is already assumed for any gallery without a parody indicator.
  • Use "Raw" as a language. This is already assumed for any gallery without a language indicator.
  • Use publisher or website names. Some exceptions apply (typically when no other creator names can be associated with the work).
  • Put the date in any brackets if it's part of the name; e.g. "Comic Megastore 2011-10" not "Comic Megastore [2011-10]".
  • Rename a gallery to describe the its contents (rare exceptions exist if the existing title is pejorative or very misleading).
  • Include a translated title in the R field if the gallery is not in that language unless the translator/uploader has used a title from a third language.
  • Indicate the quality of the work in any fashion; e.g. "Version 2", "Hi-Res", "High Quality", "300 DPI", etc.
  • Use alternative alphabetic characters (such as full-width) in the R field; e.g. "Nudism Zone" not "Nudism Zone".
  • Use the [Digital] indicator for CG sets or any work that has no paper version.
  • Use the [Colorized] indicator for works that were not colored by a 3rd party.
  • Rename expunged galleries (unless they are due for de-expunging or administrative purposes).

Rewards

Renaming galleries (as well as expunging them) rewards points for the Cleanup Toplist. Users receive 5 points for being the first to petition and 1 point for voting on an existing petition. Points are only awarded on the day that the petition is successful and will not be rewarded if the petition does not pass.

Point.png Note that repeated poor use of rename petitions may result in the user being banned from using them further.
