    The special rules are the following:

    - The number of posts per user per day is not limited anymore.
    - Each doujin release (same author and title) must have its own unique thread
    - Each new upload of a given title must be posted in the corresponding thread
    - If you fail to follow these rules, you will get an infraction
    - All the official rules still apply (especially the double posting rule)


    Before you post a doujin title, you must search if it was posted before. If yes, you must make a reply to the thread, and not make a new thread. It doesn't matter if there are separate threads with the same title, you must reply to one of them.

    The differences between commercial mangas and doujins:

    A manga is published by a book company, like Kodansha, Take Shobo, Akane Shinsha or Wani Magazine. They have ISBN number as any book. They are usually long, about 200 pages, but it can be between 150 and 300 pages.

    A doujin is a "fan" work. It is created and released by artists themselves, under the so-called doujin circles. A manga artist can release doujin with an alias. Doujins are typically released and sold at fan conventions, like Comiket. They are usually short, most of them are below 100 pages, it can be as short as 8 pages. The characters used are often taken from existing media (anime, game, even manga) and put in sexual stories.
