Topic: How I add another version of an already existing anime?

I'll pretend that you said you bought the DVD and are wondering how to add it to your list as clearly no-one would download an entire DVD image. We don't support files that big anyway, not that this is an issue because you obviously have a legally obtained physical disc. You should add a generic fil...

I'd be surprised if anyone actually prefers your "normal (i.e. historical) usage pattern". Killing the popup entirely and having the history page replace it would probably be beneficial for the normal anidb user.

If you share it it can and should be in anidb, but we'd really all prefer if you just didn't share it. You're not doing anyone a favour by doing so.

No, that's not what I meant. I'm not for giving information on the system but lying about it tells people exactly as much.

It's one big conspiracy, just ask shinsen.

Don't bother, it's not a bug. Ratings aren't straight averages and not all votes are counted right now.

The bit he was trying to point out was almost certainly "Most of these images are from pron games". This doesn't necessarily mean Kanon.

Wow, that's some bad taste you've got there. I recommend suicide. (And reading the wiki article linked and trying anime hint.)

Or you could just look at the resolution if you want to know the resolution.

It's not like the anime will be processed at that resolution so it's not really higher "quality". It just requires a more "l33t" computer and monitor.

Yes, we could tell you. No, we're not going to. (And KAA happen to be pretty good among dvd rippers, which admittedly isn't saying much. Recent KAA anyway.)

Filtering groups for the top ten by number of releases would be reasonable but I, for one, don't consider it important. Group ratings were never terribly meaningful anyway.

Sorry, I'm really not giving out any information. Any datum about this system is a weapon in the wrong hands and there's no avoiding that other than by completely rigging it.

Because one says "average" and the other says "rating". Nowhere does it say that "rating" means "average". (If it does, please tell us so that that can be corrected.) Also, like everything else on the vote graphs, the average is always up to date, unlike the ratings.

The system's only as random as the mind from which it originated, I assure you. However there is NO system that is immune to ballot stuffing except for literally fixing the ratings so we want to keep as great an edge over these people (and their hordes of little "brothers") as possible. Also, this i...
