# Do not state the source when the source is highly obvious and/or it is easily figured out; this is done to reduce clutter in release notes.<br>The most common arrangement currently prevalent in fansub groups (the "default arrangement") is as follows. Their sources should not be credited unless it's deemed necessary to do so, such as the use of a source atypical for the fansub group.
## Established English fansub groups (e.g. [FFF], [Commie], [Vivid], [GJM], [DameDesuYo], etc.) almost exclusively use JP BDs and/or DVDs for raws for their non-HDTV, non-www releases.
Established dual audio release groups (e.g. [CBM], [DHD], etc.) almost exclusively US DVDs and/or BDs for audio, and very commonly for video raws; JP BDs and/or DVDs are sometimes used for video raws.
# If a given group's releases differ from the default arrangement, but the group consistently releases in a given format for a significant portion of their releases, a default note should be added to the group's description '''instead''' of repeating the same note in each of that group's releases. See [[https://anidb.net/g6269 DmonHiro]]'s group page for an example.
# For groups that specialize in only releasing raws ([Ohys-Raws], [Leopard-Raws], etc.), only HDTV/www sources should be credited
## DVD/BD sources should be credited only if deemed necessary. For example:
### Multiple BD releases from different providers;### Modifications to raws, such as if the group replaced the original BD/DVD audio with HDTV/www audio due to low audio quality or corruption
; etc.# For groups that issues releases with an extensive variety of different sources ([Hark0n], [deanzel], [EUR], etc.), the release note should be as detailed as possible, so long as the note follows the most current standards.
