See Guide (scroll down to bottom) for details on how to make tables
F) Do Not Editorialize Titles.
Be direct, and aim for readability.
G) Tagging Guidelines
Articles about groups should just be tagged by group, you don’t need to tag every individual member of the group.
H) Keep it current
Don’t rehash past events.
I) Incomplete Posts
Users posting empty or incomplete imgur albums or kpics posts then adding the rest of the pictures after submitting will have their posts removed. This creates a bad user experience for people, please do not do it.
J) Music Video Milestones
We will only accept posts of 100 million increments. Record breaking posts are still allowed.
A) High quality posts only
No screen captures, previews, or edited content. Smallest images we accept are 800x800
B) Consolidate related pictures into albums
Uploading multiple photos of a person or group from the same photoshoot, event, music show, red carpet etc. create an album. Don’t upload every photo individually. If you want to upload photos of BTS at 2017 MAMA, create a ‘BTS 2017 MAMA’ album and upload all of the pictures there.
C) Tagging Guidelines
Not everyone in a image/video/gif needs to be tagged, only the relevant ones. If a recognizable idol is in the background of a photo of two other idols, but said background idol isn’t the focus of the photo, then he/her need not be mentioned. Only tag groups if more then 50% (3/4, 5/8, etc) of the members are present in the photo or album
Example only Jiyeon needs to be tagged here
Group photos should just be tagged by group, You don’t need to tag each member of the group, just the group itself.
D) Do Not Flood The Site
Limit your posts to 5 a day max. Use albums. While uploads are appreciated, the website doesn’t need a million new photos at once.
E) No Duplicates
No reposts within 6 months unless it is being posted in higher quality
F) Be A Good Citizen
And report posts that are breaking these rules
