[Mod] F.A.Q.  
If there's a question that is not answered here, feel free to comment with your question. However, your questions must pertain to the comm. You can't just comment here asking about random stuff.

NOTE: This is by no means complete, more Q&A's will be added as they are asked or remembered.

Q: What do you use to convert the videos into .mp4 format for your ipod?
A: Jodix Free iPod Converter

Q: Why was I rejected from the comm? Can I try to join again?
A: You were most likely rejected from the comm because you didn't fit the requirements. You need to:
• you must be a member of at least three-five other communities or have two-four friends
• have your profile information filled out

Again, this is to make sure random spam bots, trolls, etc. for the most part are weeded out and not running amuck in the comm. 8D And yes, you may try to join again as long as you fit the requirements this time around. ♥

Q: Why are the posts locked after 48 hours?
A: The reason for this is because while I want everyone to be able to download the files here, it also leaves this comm vunerable for deletion. And I'm sure none of you want that. This is also to reduce the chance of my links being hotlinked.

Q: Why was I banned?!
A: You were most likely banned because you: gave the mod(s) too much lip, starting wank with other members, hotlinking, or are a troll/spam bot/etc. If you feel you have been wrongly banned, contact me via PM and we'll talk.

Q: I'd like to help out with the comm, can I be a moderator/maintainer?
A: While I appreciate the offer, I am not looking for fellow mods to help run this comm with me. In addition to the fact that the only one posting is me hence there is no need for a moderator since I oversea my own posts. (Moderators basically approve posts.) As for maintainers, to add another maintainer means I trust that person with this comm and not to ban me, the creator, from this comm. There have been instances in other comms where the original maintainer was shut out from their comm and wasn't able to run it anymore. This comm is my baby and I would like to protect it as much as possible. You may donate links if you wish, and I will give you proper credit. But otherwise? I'm not adding/taking new moderators/maintainers at the moment.

Q: Can you upload _____ for me?
A: No. Maybe in the future for special occasions, but for now I do not take requests.

Q: Do you have _______ uploaded?
A: Check the tags or the directory.

Q: I can't play the .mp4 file you uploaded, help!
A: To play an .mp4 file you can use a variety of players with some being: iTunes, Quicktime, and VLCPlayer.

Q: Where do you download all your music/anime/etc.?
A: Check the resources page.

Q: Can I be added as an affliate?
A: Comment over at the affliates page and I will add you if you follow the requirements.

Q: Why do you only upload certain anime/tv shows/movies/discographies? What about _____?
A: You have to understand that uploading or even compiling information about a discography takes alot of work. I have to research to find out how much an artist has released, the tracklist for each single/mini-album/album, catalog numbers, where to buy, all album art, etc. In addition to that, when I post a discography I'm committing myself to uploading all future releases for that artist as well. So I'll only upload discographies of artists I like/listen to. The only exception would be if it was requested in a request post, other than that I only upload discographies I feel like uploading. The same can be said for tv shows/anime/movies.

Q: Why do you have drama and TV show as two seperate things? Aren't they the same?
A: They are in a sense, but I needed to between an English language tv show and a foriegn language one. So I decided that:

Drama = Foriegn language TV Show
TV Show = English language TV Show

Q: What are you uploading next?
A: I usually post in the weekly updates what I'm going to be uploading next so make sure to check those out!

Q: Can you upload _______ somewhere other than MU or MF?
A: I'm sorry but no, if it's a small file then maybe (like a single). And maybe if there's a request post, but otherwise I will only be uploading to MU and MF for all files. I chose those two hosting sites for various reasons. MU is the most widely used uploading site, yet many people have problems downloading, which prompted me to chose another site. I picked MF because other than when the site is down for maitainence or the links are dead, I haven't heard of people having problems with it. Plus, the unlimited storage for accounts (as long as the files are 100MB or less) was too good to pass up. ♥

Q: Can you upload ________ in something over than .mp4, like .avi, .wmv, etc?
A: No, the point of this comm was to upload .mp4 format videos for your iPod. I will not be uploading videos in any other format.

Q: Where did the name xcrystallisx come from?
A: It came from the Fabula Nova Crystallis Final Fantasy XIII series of games under Final Fantasy XIII label by Square Enix. I saw the trailer for Final Fantasy Versus XIII and fell in love with the trailer song Somnus.

Q: What does crystallis mean?
A: Crystallis is Latin for "crystal".

Hi, I'm new here, and I was wondering for the anime downloads, if the mu file is the whole episode and then you also provide mf files?
Sorry if this is a stupid question, but I am a bit confused =_='.

and also thanks for creating such a handy comm!
kairi_jaganshi: Hmm...kairi_jaganshi on January 6th, 2009 05:09 am (UTC)
Sorry for the late reply (having issues with my email -_-;;) but for the anime downloads I provide a the full episode on MU (since they're usually under 200MB per episode and should be relatively easy to download from MU if you can).

And yes, I do provideo MF mirror links. Though because of the restrictions I have to split the files into 100MB parts which you just need to rejoin with HJSplit. :D

The format which I post links is usually like this:

[MU] [MF1] [MF2]

With [MU] = Megaupload links & [MF1], [MF2] = MediaFire links. :D

I hoped that helped. ♥

Uhm...I'm new here and I've just trying to join this comm, what do I do to join? As far as I can see, I fit the requirement to be a member, please consider to accept me...^^

If you fit the requirements then all you need to do is request to join, and then wait for me to approve you. As far as I can see though, I've already approved you so that means you're a member now. 8D

Hi, I have no idea if I was accepted or rejected since I never got an email for some reason. Well anyway, I thought I have every requirement filled out? Granted I don't have my bio filled out in my profile, but that's because I really don't know what to say about myself so I just put in a picture. I can assure you that I am not a troll lol.
kairi_jaganshikairi_jaganshi on April 25th, 2010 09:20 pm (UTC)
You hadn't received an email because I hadn't approved you yet. Sometimes it can take a day or 2 for me to get on a computer and then approve or reject a request to join. It's stated in the profile that it can take up to 24 hours for me to get around to it.

But thank you for commenting in the proper place, alot of people don't. lol

And I've checked your profile and I've approved you. ♥
jessica jungstopthedisco on April 25th, 2010 09:24 pm (UTC)
oh thank you! ♥

Actually I still haven't gotten an email, but I think that's just an LJ problem. Ha, sorry for bothering you~
