This is NOT a complaints thread. The rules have been around for 2 years. You can't complain about us not giving you enough notice. All complaints post will be DELETED.

From today onwards all scans submitted without a proper credit in the description will be deleted.

If it is your personal scan, you must state that you have scanned the image yourself. If you got it from another site, then you must state where (which site) it is from.

Any scan without either of these will be deleted as we require scans to have proper credits.

Quote by Revan What is an appropriate description, well, if the description clearly states whether the submitter is the scanner or not it is acceptable.

Examples:

>My scan from the whatever issue of whatever artbook/magazine
>Not my scan, from x-website (even just saying not my scan is enough).

We do encourage that you give more accurate descriptions but what we are looking for is scans that do not state clearly whether the submitter is the scanner or not.

We'll be thankfull for any help you give on this matter.

Scanners, if you know you have not given proper credits for your scans submitted, then go and edit your descriptions NOW. The purging has already begun, but it is impossible for moderators to go through thousands of scans we have in MiniTokyo in one day. Therefore do it as soon as possible if you want your scans to remain in the galleries. Thank you for your co-operation.

EDIT:

Quote by eunasahngIf anyone wants to save time and credits and really really want the scan back in the gallery, you may send me the LINK to your deleted scan(s) and the NEW DESCRIPTIONS via PM. If I am not too busy, I will restore and edit your descriptions therefore they are acceptable. I am being extremely nice here, but don't ask me to restore 100 scans. I won't. I'll only take up to about 10 per member MAX. It may take a while since I have a slow connection.

Curious...what prompted this change? We shouldn't start reporting things we find yet should we, I imagine we need to give people time to fix their descriptions?

To tell you the truth, I'm not exactly sure, but we have been deleting non-credited scans for a while now (the recently submitted scans). We have been receiving such reports from various members as well.

By policy, we do need the credit to the scanner, although it hasn't been updated yet that the statement "All scans should have proper credit given to their sources" should really be "All scans MUST..."

I have suggested to moderators that we give a few days notice to members, so we'll see how it goes. This is what the thread is doing exactly. ^^

So something like "Not my scan, got it from 4chan." would be acceptable then? Or do we need to provide the proper address in it's entirety? I ask because I got done checking mine and most say something similiar to what I just said.

As long as the person states whether they have or have not scanned it, and if they haven't, they post a link or give a title to the website, then they'll be fine. We'll probably give some time so scanners can hopefully go back and edit their descriptions if they haven't already. :P

The scan crediting has been required always. So this shouldn't really come up as a surprise.

What is an appropriate description, well, if the description clearly states whether the submitter is the scanner or not it is acceptable.

Examples:

>My scan from the whatever issue of whatever artbook/magazine
>Not my scan, from x-website (even just saying not my scan is enough).

how about if they downloaded it from torrents? Do we have to specify the site where we got the torrent? Of course, torrents have images that were already compiled from other websites, and it's random.. how do we clarify our scan descriptions for instances like these?

No, as long as we know that it is either scanned by you or from somewhere else, it's okay. That has to be clear though.

More info on the exact source is even better if you know it. But if you really don't know, at least write that it is not your scan.

As long as you say the images you posted originated from a torrent that should be suitable enough. But like Eunasahng said being as specific as possible is really helpful

Just as an addendum: This is NOT a new rule.

Nuriko introduced this rule TWO YEARS AGO, but too many scans have slipped by unnoticed. So we just decided it was high time to do something about all those scans that don't conform to Nuriko's Law.

er... i could re-submit the deleted scans with proper credits right? once the bug/problem is fixed?

Yes, we actually encourage members to do this. But do wait until we sort out the problem in the galleries.

I have been away for awhile, and so it was probably my undoing to forget to properly credit my own scan out of common sense due to late night editing or whatever the reason. Therefore, I am not angry with the deletions of several of my scans.

However, I had not anticipate this and ended up deleting several of the scan files since I felt that I could download them from here as soon as I had the proper editing programs to do it (dust clean-up, removing printing marks, etc.). Is there a way to still recover them from here, or is re-scanning them pretty inevitable at this point?

It appears that all of your gallery items have been purged and are no longer in the MT database at all. So I would say re-scanning is your only option.

A large number of my scans have been quarantined, although I have complied with the new regulations. Some of my submissions have been the artwork of Japanese internet artists, and I always give credit with "Artwork by ..." and a link to their website. However, many of these scans have been quarantined. Is it absolutely necessary for me to include "not my scan" although that's clearly implied by giving the artist's name and website URL? Most of these submissions are not scans in the first place, but exclusively digital artwork. I always give credit for the work I upload to Minitokyo.

"Not my scan" is the very minimum you should put in the descriptions. It is only if you know nothing about the scan at all.

All scans that are deleted are in quarantaine (as it should be) and will be deleted in the same way as other artworks. You can either resubmit your deleted scans with sufficient descriptions, OR as I said in another post:

That is already very nice of U to help them restore their scans^^
Oh, and I would like to ask, for doujinshis which are not done by oneself, is it suppose to go to the scan gallery or doujinshi gallery? I have seen one which is in the doujinshi gallery but it wasnt properly stated who drewn it. All it said was a friend.

You shouldn't submit fan-art here if it isn't your own. I would say it is acceptable if they are official artwork. Then I suppose you can submit them as scans. Never submit anything you didn't do into wallpaper/abstract art/doujinshi or vector art categories.

I'm not sure if this is the right "error" topic to ask this. However, I had some of my scans deleted and that put dead links into the list of my "other submissions." For example, if you click on the dead link you get this:

Rin Tubing by MarlinWahoo

Should I make a bug report to get that image deleted from my personal gallery? Or is there a different course of action I need to take?

Anything that's not a scan must be the member's original work. Therefore such doujinshis as the one you found should be reported.

If you don't want to lodge a complaint to restore that dead link, it would be better to leave it as it is, since is is technically not a bug.

And this is not the right topic; too. You may want to make a new thread to have the mods clarify this problem.

Its not a bug, he just didn't want the thumbnail of a quarantined submission showing in his recent submissions list, hehe. So there is no problem.
