    This is an English speaking Japanese board
    see below how to post​

    Title Bar [Cover Code] Actress Name English then Japanese, Title English then Japanese
    example
    [TSDV-41152] Yuko Ogura 小倉優子 - Tottemo Amai とっても甘い
    it is in blue because the background is in blue that is all that needs to be on the title

    The Body (main part of the post containing information and relevant pictures)
    it does matter what section you are posting in, it is all the same, (Film or Photo) and it is in all sections

    if the post has a watermark on it you have to say so, at the top so it can be seen
    Warning this has a watermark
    Size **GB/MB
    format ISO/MP4/AVI/WMV/PDF, or what other format is used

    for Films all posts need a cover and a screenshot
    for Photobooks cover and at least 1 or 2 pictures are required (can be edited down to a reasonable size as the original will be in the set)
    for magazines, all have covers, and pictures,
    mixed photo sets, at least 2 photos
    they can be posted as thumbnails (better for those who are using tablet and/or phones, also better for faster loading

    what is also needed in the main section is

    Cover Code ABC-123
    Name English/Japanese
    Title English/Japanese
    any other information is valuable like
    running time
    release date
    studio
    and film information
    bit rate/frame rate
    audio
    and if you want, even a description of scenes

    Great post:) a few ideas/suggestions, thought I dunno if you're looking for them and/or want to keep the thread clean, if so just delete this post.

    Would it be possible/feasible to require that the first image(preferably cover image) in the thread be hosted locally?
    This would make sure that the thread thumbnail doesn't get broken when an imagehost for whatever reason deletes the image.
    To preserve whatever tiny source of income posters get from imagehosts I think it'd be acceptable if the image was a 220x150(or whatever the standard resolution for thread previews are) image thus encouraging downloaders to go check out the larger sized image hosted offsite.

    Also it might be useful to point would be uploaders to where they can get the additional info requested, not everybody might be familiar with where to get it.
    http://www.dmm.com/
    https://www.eic-book.com/
    Are the ones I'm familiar with, there are probably others that I don't know of. For JAV content there's also:
    http://www.javlibrary.com & http://www.dmm.co.jp/(Though non-japanese locale users might have to use http://unblockdmm.com/ for access to at least some of the content)

    Also you might wanna mention the more specific rules for some of the subforums such as one code one thread and the 7 day exclusivity rule as some people might otherwise miss them if they're careless.

    Suggestions are always looked at, can never have too many

    I did think about something like the covers to be posted as an attachment, but I did not want to make it to long to understand, if I had the time I would try and sort out those with the deleted pictures, I know you add many and I am grateful for that. A lot of imagehosts change there settings and delete many, (that is why I am against it)

    I agree it would be nice if we got the added info as well, to start with I hope we can get them to post properly first them perhaps add the bonus stuff later, I am deleting the stupid thank you posts, so if anybody has added info it can be added later without thinking oh no not another stupid thank you

    I think most posters now automatically go for the 7 day rule and one code one thread rule, I will try to remember to add it later (too tired now)

    Thank You
