==You know an Episode for an Anime that's not listed...==
AniDB is a user-driven database and every user can add new episodes. So if you know an episode for an existing Anime-title that's not yet in AniDB we encourage you to add it. We also ask you to include as much info as possible when adding a new episode, it's for all users' benefit.
==Where can I add new Episodes?!==
At the bottom of every anime entry is a link names "Add Episode". Once you click it you're on the "Add Episode" page. There's a lot of info you can input here.
==Basic info you should include when adding an episode=====Episode number===
Be careful with different episode orders here. For the moment the Japanese "How it was supposed to be shown" order is our standard
*Normal Episode
*Special/Extra Episode ''(DVD Specials, Bonus eps)'' ''(S1, S2, ...)''
{{eyecatch|Note|"Other" is NOT meant for OST's, Manga, AMV's or any other not official Special!<br>Disc menu animations are also not welcome in AniDB. Please do not add them.}}
===Episode Name (English)===
Check the official page if it's licensed, if it's not use a translation of the romaji/kanji title.<br>
If you have neither use: "Episode XX" where XX is the number of the episode. For OVAs, use "Volume XX".
{{eyecatch|Note|Episode "names" such as "Operation 9", "File #002" or "XYZ第一話" or "ABCの第三話" etc. are considered to be stylised episode numbers rather than episode titles. Please do not add them or their transcriptions/translations, use the default "Episode XX" or "Volume XX" naming convention.}}
===="Prologue" and "00" Episodes====
When it comes to episodes that are numbered as "Prologue" or "00", unless there is a "clear indication" that an "episode 0" should NOT be considered as the first episode of the regular airing sequence, an episode 0 will be considered episode 1 on AniDB, as it is the first aired episode.
For reference, the original discussion on AniDB's moderator IRC channel can be found [ here], along with follow-up comments [ here].
=====-- In Summary: when an "episode 0" is considered as episode 1 on AniDB=====
* An episode note should be added to provide a brief description. For example: "Listed as Episode 00"
* We will apply the following episode title naming convention, to make it explicit that it is an "episode 0":
Main_ep_title: sub_title - sub_sub_title</pre>
====Guidance for T episodes====
T episodes include PV (preview), CM (commercial), Trailer, etc; essentially, anything that generally serves the purpose of promoting an anime is a T episode. Generally, T episode naming guidance is as follows:
* If available, provide the Japanese T episode name. For example, a web PV posted on the official YouTube would have an official title from the producer/distributor.
* Feature length PV, PV with a full TV title, etc: {{short|e183603|<nowiki>Arpeggio Movie #2 "Cadenza " Public Special Commemorative Program First 20 Minutes Release!! (Gekijouban Arpeggio Dai 2 Dan "Cadenza" Koukai Kinen Tokubetsu Bangumi Boutou 20 Bundai Koukai!! / 劇場版アルペジオ第2弾『Cadenza』公開記念特別番組 冒頭20分大公開!!)</nowiki>}}
===Play Length===
The play length of this episode. If over 10 minutes, round '''UP''' to the nearest multiple of 5 minutes (The only acceptable case to round down would be if it's just a few seconds over the gap. You can file that under ''cornercase.''). If under 10 minutes, rounds '''UP''' to the nearest minute.
== Ordering of S Episodes -- GENERAL GUIDANCE ==
There are no ''hard rules'' regarding the ordering of S episodes. However, the following general rules of thumb should be applied:
# ''"Actual episodes"'' should come first before recaps. Example: {{a|6327|Bakamonogatari}} episodes 13 to 15 (S1 to S3)
Above all else, common sense should apply. These are general guidelines, and each anime should be looked at on a case-by-case basis.
== Optional Info ==
We'd like you to add this info sooner or later to the episode since some other users will benefit from your work.
