Quote by FranREAD THIS BEFORE POSTING, POSTS THAT DO NOT FOLLOW THE STATED FORMAT WILL NOT BE PROCESSED

This topic is to report tags needing attention in some way:
- Duplicate tags: can be merged by a moderator.
- Incorrect tag type: tags are by default created as a theme; report here if they should be something else.
- Tag hierarchy: eg. if a character tag is still orphaned you can report it here.
- Aliasing: request aliases for tags.
- Tag description: such as plot synopsis for a series, post here as well. If you want credit for your plot synopsis: add the following at the bottom after one (just one) newline:
Credit: <a href="http://username.minitokyo.net/">Username</a>

General guidelines
- Please post the tag that needs to be processed as a link, the ones in the parenthesis shouldn't be links.
-The correct name order is GivenName FamilyName (e.g. "Usagi Tsukino", not "Tsukino Usagi").
- Processed posts will get deleted, so if your posts has vanished all the requests should have been carried out.
- Don't edit your post after posting, just add a new post.
- When reporting Mangaka, including their official site and/or Pixiv account is very helpful.
- Minitokyo DOES NOT accept summaries from other sites*.
*note: dictionary definitions are OK most of the time, though. Remember to credit (link to) the source.

Quote by FranOn a side note, please don't create tags for the writer of the series. Mangaka stands for the illustrator of the series rather than the writer of it.

Known tag-related issues

(1) Display issues with tag names that feature more than 3 consecutive digits (e.g. for 12,012, use 12012 instead)
Solution: avoid using tags like this. Spell out the numbers if you have to.

(2) Tag type goes blank when trying to switch to "Series,OVA,Visual Novel".
Solution: keep tag type as either "Series, OVA", or "Series, Visual Novel".

(3) Forum thread that is supposed to be parented under specific series, shows up as parented under Eden Eternal instead.
Solution: don't parent threads under specific series.

(4) Series tagged as "Visual Novel" or "Series, Visual Novel" cannot be added to watchlist.
Solution: keep tag type as Series only, add the Games tag manually. By coding, visual novels and games cannot be added to the watchlist.

(5) "Tag Me" button is broken i.e. leads to deleted scans, only a few scans, or a blank page.
Solution: none.

(6) Some non-existent tags: redirects you back to the homepage, like this.
Solution: none.
