 Part 0 - Introduction

Introduction below courtesy of Chairman 冬瓜

Quote:
Dear ASTOST‘s many international users.

It is a great honour to welcome your presence in our humble forum. Whilst there has previously been no opportunity to communicate with you, I would like to take this opportunity - on behalf of of forum staff and administration - to formally welcome current and new members from abroad.

The presence of international users on our forum against many odds has helped me to more deeply realise that a love of music knows no boundaries. Please continue to support and contribute to our community (thanks!)

On that note, I feel I should quote a common phrase in Chinese, one you may well be familiar with, 入乡随俗: when in Rome, do as the Romans do. As a member of our forum's userbase and community, it is necessary that you comply with the local rules and provisions as to ensure the perpetuation of ASTOST's renowned harmonious and positive atmosphere.

Hence, upon the publication of this guide, I would like to warmly welcome you to our community and trust these guidelines will enhance your experience of the forum. I would like to thank Lemphek for his hard work writing this exhaustive guide and announce its endorsement as an official publication. I urge you to respect and follow by the provisions set forth within, thank you


御冬Head Moderator

[translated, original untranslated text below]


Acknowledgements: I would like to make a special mention to the ASTOST's community for the invaluable contributions - in particular users Ashnon, Annachan, yurari, metalabyss and 暗夜幽红 - without the tireless assistance of whom this guide undoubtably would not have come into fruition. Also, I'd like to express special gratitude to head moderator 御冬 who kindly took the time to write an introductory post for this guide (quoted above, incl. translation)

Supplementarily, I would like to thank 雨子 for his recent contributions since the original writing of this guide

 Part 1 A/B - Ground Rules

1A ASTOST-hosted content

There are two types of uploaded material on ASTOST; selfrip and non-selfrip resources. Selfrips will have the tag "自抓” included in the post title.

example of a selfrip with the tag "自抓" included in its title

A selfrip (marked "自抓") is content a user has personally purchased, ripped and uploaded themselves.
Selfrips are prohibited for reproduction outside of the forum
unless given permission by the uploader.

note: this includes the prohibition of sharing transcodes (i.e. converting to a lossy format) or scans without the ripper's consent


Users are required to provide an EAC or XLD log as evidence that they personally ripped and own the CD. Similarly, when uploading digital purchases (marked 自购), users are required to provide an electronic receipt as proof of purchase.

In contrast, non-selfrip resources are free to be re-uploaded and shared outside of the forum.
When uploading a non-selfrip resource, users are required to include autobiographical proof of upload (see part 4.5 for more info)

1B: Sharing policy

As mentioned before, the sharing of any selfrip (自抓) or self-purchase (自购) material is prohibited, including scans and transcodes, unless the uploader gave you permission. Please understand this is a condition of your membership on the forum.

Also forbidden is the "hotlinking", or copying+pasting of DL links to other forums. If you want to share non-selfrip content from ASTOST, please first upload to another file host. Hotlinking not only may land you in trouble; it also risks the original uploader having their Baidu account suspended!

And a last word of warning; all resources published on ASTOST are forbidden for commercial use of any form. ASTOST does not charge users for access to its resources, and thus we ask that you do not either.

Boiled down, that makes just 3 rules:
  1. If it's a selfrip (自抓) or self-purchase (自购), don't share it
  2. If it's not a selfrip and you want to share it, re-upload the files and don't "hotlink"
  3. If you share it, don't charge money for it
        It is worthy to note that there are people who may not feel comfortable to follow by these policies, and thus we understand that ASTOST is not a utopia for everyone.

There are many other music-sharing BBSs with more liberal rules regarding sharing, each user should find a community whose philosophy reflects their own views.
Most of all, thanks for your understanding

 Part 1 C/D - Prohibitions

Please note that this guide is only an introduction to the main rules of the forum. It is highly recommended advanced users take the time to read through the full Chinese rules as they more in-depth and comprehensive than the overview in this post

ASTOST has some prohibitions, mostly to create harmony on the forum, as well as granting certain rights to uploaders. Some are site-wide, whilst others only apply to certain districts. Key prohibitions have been highlighted in red.

1C Site-Wide Prohibitions
  • Posting of Doujin or self-published works by Mainland-based circles without permission from label/circle owner (Taiwanese-based circles are ok)*
  • Reposting of other users' selfrip (自抓) or self-purchase (自购) resources, offsite or onsite*
  • Requesting re-uploads of selfrips or self-purchases anywhere other than in Requests district, or by PMing the uploader.
  • Similarly, asking users other than the uploader for archive passwords. If the uploader doesn't respond, assume it's a no. If you want help writing in Chinese, you can PM a bilingual user like ethoraji or post in the help/FAQ thread, We're happy to help if it means avoiding a misunderstanding.
  • Sending multiple PMs/harassing users for not re-uploading their rips or sharing passwords. If you do this, not only may you get a warning from moderators, but you may find yourself suddenly unable to download that user's uploads...

*When in doubt on any of these rules, contact a moderator.

Minor prohibitions include:
  • Copying+pasting the posts of other users (seriously)
  • Making English posts of under 8 words or Chinese posts with less than 5 characters
  • Meaningless/contentless posts or comments not germane to the topic of discussion
  • 'Bumping’ a post with more than 3 subsequent replies [without the addition of any supplementary content]
  • 'Flaming‘ and personal attacks
  • Posting personal or sensitive information
  • Posts containing "yellow" content, including:
    • Posts containing lewd material, pornography, or yellow jokes
    • Posts containing nudity (if an album you're uploading has nudity, lewd content or content which could otherwise be viewed as 'yellow', please contact a moderator upon uploading)
    • Posts containing violent content
    • Swearing directed at other members
  • Making posts containing any other content deemed mundane or inappropriate by moderators
  • Reposting the same archive more than once
  • Posting a batch upload for resources that are already available on the forum, without the addition of any new resources (i.e. if someone has already uploaded a discography from a given circle, don't upload the same discography unless your discography contains albums theirs doesn't)
More extensive information on prohibitions can be read here (sections 5 and 6 refer specifically to this points outlined in section 2)

1D Region-specific prohibitions
  • 新人报到 (New Member District)
    • Shitposting, contentless replies, etc.
    • Replying to more than 8 posts in 2 hours, or 12 posts in 24 hours

  • 新作资源 (New Work District)
    • Music posted in 新人区 is restricted to following genres/classifications:
      • 动画 (Anime OST)
      • 游戏 (Game OST) - not limited to games published in Japan
      • 同人 (Doujin Music) - see specific note below
      • 综合 (Japanese-released music including J-pop, Film OST, TV OST, Drama CD, etc.)

    • 同人 music posted in 新人区 must be available for purchase in commercial CD outlets in Japan (i.e. Amazon.co.jp, HMV, animate, etc.) - This does not include indie or doujin-specific stores (such as D-Stage, Toranoana and Guhroovy)
    • 東方 (touhou) arrange music is specifically not permitted and should instead be posted in 同人区
    • Selfrips posted in 新作区 must be within 2 months of release date
    • Non-selfrips must be posted within 1 month of release date
    • Exceptions to the above rule may occasionally be made, for example in cases such as;
      • The release is extremely rare or difficult to find and a case was made to the district moderator
      • The release has not yet been posted to the forum and is deemed significant, at the discretion of district moderators

      Read the FAQ for more info on this section

  • 同人音乐 (Doujin Section)
    • Content is limited to non-commercial music posted by doujin circles, with the case of a few exceptions (i.e. Exit Tunes, IOSYS, LIA, etc.)
    • Content is not limited to any particular region, however  bear in mind the site-wide rule against publishing releases by Chinese doujin circles
    • As mentioned before, reposting the same archive more than once
    • Posting a batch upload for resources that are already available on the forum, without the addition of any new resources (i.e. if someone has already uploaded a discography from a given circle, don't upload the same discography unless your discography contains albums theirs doesn't)


    • More in-depth rules for 同人区 can be found here (scroll down for the English part)

  • 游戏音乐 (Game Music)
    • Unofficial compilations and gamerips are prohibited and should be posted in the Music Discussion subforum (音乐讨论版)

  • 梦幻水库 (Water District) and 音乐讨论 (Music Discussion) subforums
    • Creation of "look how big my trophies are" posts - specifically creating discussion about CDs you don't intent to share on the forum  - is prohibited
    • Please note relevant site-wide prohibitions in section 1C

 Part 2 - Award System

ASTOST has a complex system of points related to the trade of music. This system may seem confusing and arbitrary at first, but becomes clearer with use.



Posts (发帖) represent the number of posts and replies users make in all areas of the forum.

Scores (乐谱) are awarded for each 张 ("piece") of lossless music uploaded. One score is awarded for each CD  in an album (i.e. a 2张 album will be awarded 2 scores - one for each disc). Scores are added manually by moderators, so please be patient

Notes (音符 - commonly denoted as ao) act as a 'currency' which can be used to purchase music from other users. ao is awarded by moderators to each content-based post according to the size of the uploaded content; 1ao for each 10MB uploaded for selfrips, and 1ao per 20MB uploaded for non-selfrips,

Extra ao may also be gained by adding the [sell] code to posts, requiring other users to 'purchase' the hidden content (for example, download links for an upload)

Occasionally, a rich 土豪 will give away excess ao for free...

Love (爱) points are a measure of the user's 土豪品 (tyrantship) and are the most fiercely contended for points. (see the FAQ)

Contribution (贡献) points are a measure of the user's contribution to the forum.
Commonly, 贡献 are awarded to users for posting a selfrip in 新区 or 同人区section using EAC/XLD in secure mode and within a month of release date, for fulfilling requests in 求助专区 section, or for other means of contribution to the forum (fulfil a request)

Medals are awarded (upon application) to users based on specific achievements; more information here

Getting more points has perks, for example;
  • Some uploaders will set certain restricitions on their uploads, for example users must have x amount of 爱 or 乐谱 to view the download link;
  • Some posts are hidden and can only be viewed once a user has a certain amount of points;
  • More points allow you to rank up (indicated by the level bar under your avatar), allowing you extra features like an extended search period;
  • Other secret goodies...


More on this and an-depth description of the award process for points can be found in the English FAQ: https://www.astost.com/bbs/read.php?tid=10949706

 Part 3 - Navigating the Site

3C - Purchasing Content

Note: As stated explicitly in ASTOST's rules, the re-upload or distribution (online or offline) of other users' Selfrip (自抓) and Self-purchase (自购) content outside of permissions specifically granted by the uploader are both prohibited and looked down upon by the ASTOST community.

If you haven't already, please read the prohibitions note here


Understand that this is not so much a prohibition as a condition for your invitation to the ASTOST community

Firstly, find the release you are looking for using ASTOST's search function, or by browsing the relevant subforum

Once you have found the release you are looking for, you can purchase the content (usually DL links) using a dialogue similar to the one below;
此帖售价 音符:0 ,已有 59 人购买
若发现会员采用欺骗的方法获取财富,请立刻举报,我们会对会员处以2-N倍的罚金,严重者封掉ID!

The "音符" label indicates how many 音符 (notes) are required to 'purchase' the release, and "已有 x 人购买 indicates how many users have purchased the release.

Before you buy the link, ensure that you have sufficient rights to download your purchased content. Some posts require that users have a certain 'point' or 'love' score to access the download content or see the archive's password.

e.g.
you must have 0 乐谱 to see the hidden content
对不起!您没有登录,请先登录论坛

you must have 999 爱 to see the hidden content
对不起!您没有登录,请先登录论坛


Some posts require you to reply with a comment before viewing the archive password,

e.g.
you must reply to see the hidden content
本部分内容设定了隐藏,需要回复过才能看到,您已回复过或有足夠的权限,以下是隐藏内容:
after you reply, you can see the hidden content like thus


Note that many Baidu links have a 4-digit access password (密码) which is separate from the archive's password. This should be in LZ's post just next to the BD hyperlink. For more info on downloading from Baidu, see this tutorial

If you are having trouble downloading a resouce;
  • If the archive is corrupt or password incorrect, try re-downloading and/or asking other users to try as well. If that fails, message the uploader or reply to the thread.
  • If you're unable to download from a certain file host, try messaging the uploader, or ask for help in the FAQ thread (I'm happy to help with translation)
  • If the file has expired, message the uploader to re-upload, or open a thread in requests district
  • If you don't have enough points to download a resource or view the extraction passowrd, file a request. Do not go PMing users other than the uploader asking for 补档 or extraction passwords
  • If you've been blocked by a user,  you've done a bad, and should contact Hakkin or ethoraji ASAP

 Part 4 - Posting Content

A few quick notes before uploading:
Quote:
Please check that the material you are uploading is not prohibited content . Also make sure to check subforum-specific prohibitions for the section you're posting in

It is highly recommended you upload to  Baidu (commonly written as 百度) file host [BD] which can be accessed by both mainland and non-mainland users. A Baidu registration and upload guide exists in this thread

If you are unable to use Baidu, Mega.co.nz [MEGA] is a reasonable alternative.

If you are uploading compilations or box sets of over 4GB, either upload the music into separate files (i.e. one archive per CD) or use multi-part archives. As a general rule of thumb, try to keep your archives under 1GB


1) Create a post:

navigate to the relevant subforum, and creating a new post by clicking 新帖


Using the drop-down box next to the title field, select from one of the following;



无损音质 being lossless formats (.flac, .tta, .ape and .wav) and mp3其他 being lossy formats (.mp3, .ogg).

If you're not sure of the difference, please research before posting.

If uploading multiple formats (i.e. flac+mp3), select 无损音质

In 新作区, instead choose from one of the following:
动画 Anime OST
综合 Pop Music [Japanese only]
游戏 Game OST
同人 Doujin Music


2) Create a title for your post:

Include [tags] describing the media you're uploading and release date
i.e.  [自抓/NA][File host(s)][YYMMDD] Artist - Release title [Format(s)][Size]

Doujin CDs should use a title including the release event (if known) and circle name
i.e. [自抓/NA][File host(s)][Event](Circle) Artist - Release title [Format(s)][Size]

Quote:
the tag "[自抓]" should only be included if the file is a selfrip - that is - you ripped it yourself - If you are uploading someone else's resource or otherwise didn't rip the CD, don't include this label. It is preferred you also include the ripping software you used to make the rip in the title, i.e. [EAC] or [XLD]

Similarly, the tag "[自购]" may be added if the title is a WEB release (digital purchase) and purchased by yourself (i.e. from Bandcamp, Beatport or a similar web-based resource). If you add this tag, it is required you provide some proof of purchase - for example, a receipt from the online merchant. It is preferred you include the store you purchased from, i.e. [BC自购] for Bandcamp.
For example:
[BD][C80](Hardcore Tano*C) Hardcore Syndrome 5 [flac][556MB] (Doujin, non-selfrip, Baidu)
[自抓][EAC][BD/MEGA][M3-29](Minamotrance) 源屋 - Minamotrance Core i7 [wav+cue+log][470MB] (Doujin, selfrip, Baidu and Megaupload)
[自抓][EAC][百度][120523] きゃりーぱみゅぱみゅ - PamyuPamyu Revolution (CD+DVD)[flac+cue+log+ISO][1.8GB] (non-Doujin, selfrip, Baidu)
[BD][BC自购][160306] Goreshit - Sedatives Vol. 1 [flac+jpg][210MB] (Doujin, WEB purchase from Bandcamp, Baidu)


3) Fill out information about the release, importantly:


Album art (use the [іmg] *image url* [/іmg] code to embed images, for example [іmg]http⁚//example․com/img/imageurl․jpg[іmg])
Title (标题)
Featured artist(s) (演者)
Circle or Record Label (出版者)
Catalogue number
Event or release date (发行日期)
Media (版本特性) [CD / WEB / DVD]
Format (格式) [flac /mp3 etc. ... incl. bit rate if lossless]
Region (地区)

Additional information can include links to the release homepage or Soundcloud.preview (XFD)


4) Add a purchase link

hide your download links using the [seƖƖ=x] *download link* [/seƖƖ], where x is the number of notes users will have to pay to buy your content


5) Include your ID / proof of identity:

For selfrips (自抓), include the EAC/XLD log in your post. It should be public so moderators and other users can check your log for errors without having to download it, however fold it up nicely with the [fοld] *content* [/fοld] code so it doesn't clutter up your post. Please include the log checksum too.

For self-purchases (自购), take a screenshot of the receipt from the digital reseller, and hide it using the [hіde] *image link to receipt[ /hide] code, with a high love restriction (i.e. 200+) so only moderators can see it.

For everything else, you should include some form of proof of identity in your upload, this can be;
  • Username in the comment field;
  • Username included in the .rar extraction password;
  • A .txt file with their username included in the .rar archive

example:

examples of how a user's ID can be included in an uploaded .rar file as evidence of upload


Make sure to note in your post where you included your autobiographical proof, e.g. "UID in .rar extraction password"


6) Format your post using WindCode (similar to BBcode). Information on more advanced WindCode functions can be found here


7) First check over for errors then...Post your thread!

To modify your post, click the link labelled 编辑 (in the header of your post, above the title)


8) Check the English FAQ for information about how points are awarded

Thanks for pointing that out! The highlighting differs from subforum to subforum, but generally speaking posts are coloured according to the media contained within, and whether it's a selfrip or not.

For example - in the 同人 section - posts are highlighted according to which event the media was released at.

You can see the highlighting descriptions in the doujin subforum's index page as thus;
[just search for the words "其他事项"]

For a simplistic explanation of this, CDs released at C84 and M3 are highlighted in pink, batch uploads are highlighted in blue, and other doujin selfrips in green. (This is however not the full explanation, so please contact yurari if you have further questions)

Also keep in mind that this does differ from section to section so your best bet may be to ask on a case-by-case basis. I will however try and include a more complete explanation in the guide when time allows

I have several question:

1. Can I upload lossless music but doesn't include "cue" & "Log" ? Because I get it from internet.
For example only (FLAC + BK) or (wav+jpg), etc.

2. can i upload file MP3? because I sometimes get Brand New Music with mp3 format faster than the other forum?

Just that's all.
Waiting forward for your response.

Hi hakuga,

1) You can upload flac rips without logs, including flac files sourced from WEB resources (i.e. Bandcamp, Beatport), and media ripped by others.

However, if you are claiming the rip is a 自抓 (selfrip), you must prove that the rip was done by yourself (i.e. photo of CD, ripping log, or receipt if from WEB source). Additionally, if you wish to apply for 爱 (love points), the rip must be done in secure mode or purchased from an online vendor

2) Most lossless formats are allowed, namely; wav, flac, ape, tta (true audio) and aiff. If you have a format not included in that list, perhaps best to convert to a different format, or ask a moderator. Lossless files are allowed in principal, however you will not be awarded 乐谱 (notes) for lossy uploads except in special cases (i.e. the circle / label only release the media in lossy format, this is at the discretion of moderators). The preferred lossy formats are mp3 and aac/m4a, whilst ogg is also acceptable but uncommon. You should ask in advance before uploading other formats and do not transcode lossy files

Please read through this section of the guide for more information regarding this

    looks great!

    But: better to protect your links using the [sell]command

    and I'm assuming this wasn't a selfrip?
