Sorry to bump an old thread, but is there any update on this?

OVA
Movie
Web (Series)
TV Special
Music Video

Aside from missing the last two, I notice we do not distinguish between TV and Web (unless in the notes).
There are TV Special/Music Video albums in the database that can't really be categorized as anything else, like it was said previously in this thread.

There aren't a lot coming out, but there are at least a bunch every year, so it might be a good idea to add the platforms.

I'm a little unsure about these two, but since they are standard on the anime database sites, I added them.

Even if you're unsure, I still think it's better than not having anything at all.

Also, I was thinking that maybe TV Special should just be Special so it's consistent with Series.

bah you can find TV Anime, TV Series (maybe other) but you always only find TV Special

edit: however, I could agree with having "Special", it could be around "Series" no?

Only Special would be better (and easier I guess) imho since the database doesn't differentiate TV Series and Web Series for instance (unless specified in the notes which is OK).

maybe the selection menu should sort that
like showing "TV Series", "TV Special" but without "TV" in the actual page (after submitting/editing)

Why showing it when selecting and then just make it disappear in the main (non-edit) view?

I can't quite imagine that complicating this would be the solution. And I can't especially imagine SS (or Blah) would have the time to code more specific options, I think getting these categories more than a year after the original request is as good as it can get.

showing in the selection menu isn't complicated to do
it only shows "TV Series" and "TV Special" in the selection menu but it stays "Series" and "Special" in the platform represented on album page

<option value="Series">TV Series</option>
<option value="Special">TV Special</option>

But why when you have Web Series too? So you could make "TV/Web Series" as one option in the edit view too but hey, when you exit the edit page, it will show only "Series"...

So why not keeping it simple as "Series" (as well as "Special") in both modes?

I have no idea how you folks want to handle the upcoming VR thing, but anyway, I guess some platforms could be added (or not).

Platform here was somewhat confusing, in certain cases I mean... "PC" sure is Windows, Linux, OS X etc. as operating systems but on the other hand, we also got Google Android and Apple iOS which are operating systems as well but to make it easier, listed as platforms too. OUYA for instance still uses Android although it's added as a separate platform.

So submitted this http://vgmdb.net/album/56822
as a VR game OST specifically built for the device Samsung Gear VR (which still runs on Android). Should these devices also become "platforms" like OUYA did, or not?
