:TITLE:Adding/Editing Staff Members
Staff entries represent individuals and groups that play significant roles in visual
novels production, such as script writers, character designers, artists, voice actors,
composers and singers.
People involved in visual novel production often hide behind multiple
aliases. These aliases can be listed here. Add only aliases that are actually
used in VN credits. Sometimes names with different Japanese spellings are
romanized equally. You may add such aliases, but in that case the original
spelling should be used when that name is being looked up in the VN staff
edit form.<br />
One of the aliases can be selected as the primary name of the staff entry.
Typically this is either the person's true name (if known, and if the person
has used their true name in the context of VNs) or, alternatively, the most
widely used alias.<br />
For each alias, the romaji field should contain the name in Latin alphabet.
The original name should contain the name as it is written in the original
script, and should be left blank if the name is already in the Latin
alphabet. Check out the <a href="/d5">general editing guidelines</a> for
information on name order and romanization. If possible, try to include a
space between the given name and the surname.
Person's gender, if known.
Native language, Japanese by default.
Brief note describing biography, occupation and production companies affiliations, if any.
It's fine to leave this field empty if there's nothing much known about the person in question.

You could also provide links to Wikipedia entry, Twitter account and/or AniDB entry. Do
not specify the full URL for additional links, we only need a small part of it!
