Answer
·  Who can write Synopses?

Anyone who is logged in to their Anime-Source account can submit synopses. After you submit you synopsis, it goes into a storage area and awaits approval from one of our Anime reviews administrators.

·  Who can write reviews?

Just like the synopsis, any user who is logged into their anime-source account can submit a review for an anime they watched. Once submitted, your review goes through a screening process and if it passes the qualifications of not being too brief and being spoiler free then it’s posted in our reviews database.

Anime reviews contain your own comments and opinions about a particular anime series. It also allows you to rate a series from 1 to 10 with 10 being the best.

Our entire database contains reviews fans like you. All the ratings are averaged out and the 50 anime with the highest rating make it on our top 50 list. Everyone is encouraged to write reviews, just go to a particular anime title and at the bottom of the anime synopsis you should see a link that says “Post Review”

Please note: Reviews must be in depth and more than just couple words like: 'best anime in the world'. Review Admins will delete unsuitable reviews without warning.

·  How do I use the Database?

Please refer to this screenshot on the current database layout:



STUDD submissions are done through the forums. All submissions will give you website points: 8 points for synopsis, 2 points for torrents, 5 points for reviews, 5 points for four screenshots, 1 point for each correction/add more info to existing entry.

·  How can I make/submit screenshots?

You can take a look at the anime titles that we require screenshots for by looking in our anime database.

You can also see how to take screenshots on your computer here.

Screenshots can be emailed to us at: screenshots@anime-source.com (CURRENTLY BROKEN: Please use e-mail leoxjm@anime-source.com in the meantime). Please include your username so we can give you points for your work.

·  What is the difference between a synopsis and review?

A synopsis is a brief but detailed description of what an anime is about. It should not include any personal opinions but rather just give the reader a general sense of what the show is about.

A review is your own opinion about the show. Here you can bash or praise till your hearts' content. You also get to make a rating from 1 to 10 for the anime which affects the anime's overall score.

·  Can I write both a synopsis and review for the same anime title?

Yes, infact we highly encourage you to submit synopses for our database. But that doesn't mean you can't put in your own opinion for the show as well. We encourage everyone to do both!

·  I submitted my review/synopsis. How come I don't see it in the database?

All reviews and synopses are stored on the database as soon as you submit them BUT are not available for public viewing until an admin reads over them. Usually its only a few hours before your synopsis or review gets posted, but sometimes it takes longer depending on Admin availability.

If it's been over a week without any changes and you don't see your review posted, check your email or Private Messages box to see if there were any reasons why your submission was rejected. If there are no messages, it was probably an error (i.e. we never received your submission), so just resubmit the review/synopsis.

·  I found a really good synopsis/review at another site. Could I submit it here as well?

If you're it's original author you're more than welcome to, but please refrain from doing so if you are not.

We are more interested in posting YOUR opinion than some other reviewer's who probably would submit his review to us if he wanted it here. Furthermore, there are authorship issues as submitted reviews are posted under the submitter's name. As you know, claiming other people's work as your own is plagiarism, and Anime-Source has a no tolerance policy regarding it. All reviews copied from this or other websites are deleted or rejected by the Reviews Staff, and the submitter will be warned not to take similar action in the future.

Punishment for plagiarism may range from point deductions to a permanent ban for repeat offenses.

·  What is this "Power Reviewer" thing I see some people have next to their name?

It is a distinction that the most prolific review submitters get in our reviews area. It means that that particular person has many reviews accepted into our database, and this is the acknowledgment that these people get.

"Power Reviewer" scores do not weigh more or less than others when it comes to estimating review averages, but they are specially recognized for submitting their reviews and opinions about many different productions. Their reviews are subjected to the same acceptance standards as all others, so checking out their work should also work as a good guideline for how to submit reviews to us.
