CSDb release standards for cracks

For some time CSDb worked as a first release site, thus had rules and standards for sorting out worthy releases to be added into the database. The cracker groups still active have since moved to the remaining first release boards. If you want to release a first release you can read the rules in Vandalism News (online here), Propaganda and Game Corner, and upload your crack to the three counted first release boards available through Telnet: Antidote, The Hidden and Reflections. This is a good thing, as CSDb is supposed to be an archive with the main purpose to gather information about the scene, mirroring as much as possible. CSDb should not take part in scene politics.

Said that, we would still like to point out the importance of quality when it comes to cracking these days. Make sure you read the rules in the disk magazines mentioned above, and don't be sloppy. Your mistakes and sloppyness will be mirrored here and elsewhere for eternity.

Every version of a crack should have its own entry at CSDb (even bugged ones! They are also part of history).

We also want to motivate people to upload more old cracks to the database. Go through your turbotapes and disks - add missing stuff.

Cracks without tags or intros should only be added if a tagged crack of the game in question is not available on CSDb. Cracks that should be excluded are simple freeze-cracks without any tag
