(This message will be edited/updated from time to time)
This is a general guideline to those who wish to add any particular drama, artiste, picture, or feature artiste to the database. Future updates of this website will depend largely on user contributions, so do read carefully before any submission.
Information on dramas can often be found on the official tvstation websites (like www.fujitv.co.jp
). It helps alot if you understand Japanese.
Currently there is no automatic way to do all these (not yet!
) so all new information and pictures should be posted in the Corrections/Additions to Drama Database
The following lists the information required for each contribution, as well as their respective explanations and requirements.
All artiste and character names must start with the family name followed by given name.
e.g. Sakai Noriko instead of Noriko Sakai
All dates submitted must adhere to YYYY-MM-DD (that is, 23 June 2003 should be 2003-06-23)
Generally, your pictures should be large and clear. However, refrain from sending me humongous
file attachments. If there's really a need, leave me a PM and I'll make arrangements separately.
When providing information on existing dramas, please provide the link to the details page on jdorama.com. If they are new to the database, just indicate that they are new.
