+:SUB:When to add a release
- <i>When to add a release (stuff about NOT adding fandisks, OSTs, etc)</i>
+ A 'release' is a product - either physical or digital - containing (parts of) the
+ visual novel. This excludes soundtracks, drama CDs, fandisks, and other products
+ that do not contain the visual novel itself.<br />
+ All releases should be added seperately. For example, a limited and a regular edition
+ shouldn't be combined into one release, even if they share the release date and
+ contents. For commercial games, separate releases can be distinguished by their
+ JAN/UPC/EAN number.
