4ArndQuestion regarding reviews...

Before I start one, I like to do one on a Bootleg, as to show how to identify it by describing details and pictures. Managed to get a Bootleg, only after taking a closer look at it, I was able to figure out it is a counterfeit figure.

Would it be ok to do this as a review?
I guess it's okay, with a right title to avoid confusion.

Are the tag clouds for peoples' figure collections gone? They kept appearing and disappearing for a while, and then were squirreled away on a "Bonus" page, but now I can't find them anywhere.

I found it really interesting to be able to know what the most frequent tags on the figures in my (and others') collection were (like "Long Hair", "Weapons", "Thighhighs", etc.)

The feature is still there.
I believe the tag cloud is now off by default and has to be enabled under profile settings.

Alternatively you can access the bonus page by going to collection, and selecting Bonus under the Status option on the extreme left.
Like so (mfc link)

Thank you, Bummed. That's what I was looking for.

Although, now I'm bummed to see that the Tag Cloud was taken away to be a Subscriber-exclusive feature. While, I don't begrudge attempts to get the site to pay for itself, or even make money off of the hard work put into it, taking away features that used to be available and locking them behind a paywall is kind of, to speak colloquially, a "Dick Move". I'm always a fan of rewarding subscribers and supporters by coming up with new incentives and perks rather than taking away from existing users whenever possible.

Furthermore, that this feature had been locked away behind a Subscription isn't even spelled out, being covered under the rather generic "Customize your profile". All I could see on the Profile Settings page was that there were a whole lot of options greyed out, but nothing about what most of them actually did.

In the end, you got my $5 for a month, just to see if this feature was indeed in there, so I guess that means you win!

While it is weird that a lot of features move around, I think the fact that we are always getting tons of new features and improved usability on the website for free evens it out plenty enough, I think.

I'm curious how the Power system has changed! Have there always been negative powers? o.o

I guess Rating and Favs are more heavily weighted now.

paTKanySuzuDoes an official manga fanbook go into the "Manga" category or does it go in the "Special Books" category?

Depends.
If it's a mook (anywhere ムック written on it's description) then it should go to the "Mooks" category, if it's mostly art then that's an "Artbook", everything else can go to the "Special Books" category. If you can't decide put under "Artbooks" and make the entry Draft.

if I look at the bamboo Blade fanbook : [ext link ]
it's written "ファンブック", it's the same size as the manga, it even has a number to go along the serie. On the inside there are a few color illustrations, characters profile, most notable scenes, quizz/games, short stories, ...
So I'm really torn between Special Book and Manga.

If there are mostly comic pages select 'Manga', else select 'Special Books'.

Hi, Don't know where else to post this, but I was wondering if all items & figures associated with the Muv-Luv series would need updating with this company as the copyright holder - encyclopedia #26974 - The company logo is shown in the picture of this entry for example: encyclopedia #856
I'm surprised no one has entered this company, age or age-soft, before.

Got a new general question, could someone please explain to me the difference between the classification "Model Kit" and "Garage Kit".

My native language is not English, hence I may have an issue with the translation??

What classification would be a figure, which is ready painted and only needs assembly, nothing else? I would have thought it is a model kit or am I wrong?

Garage kits are usually made of resin, unpainted, and usually require pinning by metal rods, wood, etc. Model kits are are usually made of colored plastic or PVC and like you said it only needs assembly by snapping it together, glue, etc. There are some exceptions that I'm not sure of like some of Polygonia's (a gk sculptor) new stuff that is cast in colored resin and only requires assembly. What you described though sounds like it would best fit under model kits.

The HoiHoi-san line is a good example of what would be a model kit, while most of the recent additions to the databases are garage kits from Treasure Festa.

4ArndGot a new general question, could someone please explain to me the difference between the classification "Model Kit" and "Garage Kit".I suppose Model Kits are models of trains,ships, air planes and the like, while GKs are selfmade figures like the ones we collect. I'm not into this stuff though, so I can be wrong.

Edit: too slow (again) and wrong :P

Thanks for the answers, it is basically this figure, whose classification got changed :item #70587 But as you suggested Muntoe, I thought along these lines as well and listed it under Model kits. By the looks of their website, I'm not even sure if glue is needed. As naisor actually said in one of the conversation I had with him, this particular figure is more or less a rather expensive figma figure.

Maybe one of the mods could clarify this?

Thank you.

I would say that looks like more of a Model Kit myself...

Personally I think plastic kits with sprues are Model Kits, and Resin kits with seperate parts are Garage Kits, but I'm not an expert on Kits :p

Garage Kits - unassembled models made usually in resin.

Model Kits - unassembled plastic models / unassembled paper models.

Umm I'm pretty sure that one of my photos (depicting figures in boxes) is suddenly deleted and it wasn't me, so I'm wondering who deleted it and why?
