BakaBT uses [http://bakabt.me/keywords.php keywords] to separate content into different genres.  This is a brief guide and reference to the more commonly used keywords used on BakaBT.
  
<!--- A brief guide to Keywords would be nice in my opinionI copied the current keyword list from Box, removed all of the parenthesis numbers, and will paste it here twice, but commented out for now.

If a keyword is missing, it may not have been added yet, or is considered too minor to add(Such as publishers, producers, and mangakas that are used very few times)
  
First list will be the "short" list since I don't think we want to explain EVERY keyword, that would take weeks, maybe months to do.

First list will be the "short" list since I don't think we want to explain EVERY keyword, that would take weeks, maybe months to do. Only modify this first list!

Latest revision as of 04:19, 21 November 2012

BakaBT uses keywords to separate content into different genres. This is a brief guide and reference to the more commonly used keywords used on BakaBT.

If a keyword is missing, it may not have been added yet, or is considered too minor to add. (Such as publishers, producers, and mangakas that are used very few times)


#

  • 1080p - refers to the number of lines of vertical resolution in a video file, or how "tall" the image is. Generally this indicates encodes from a Blu-Ray source.
  • 3XR - Anime fansubbing group.
  • 4dawgz - manga scanlation group specializing in hentai manga.
  • 4-koma - is a comic-strip format, generally consisting of four panels of equal size ordered from top to bottom. (They also sometimes run right-to-left horizontally or use a hybrid 2x2 style, depending on the layout requirements of the publication in which they appear.)
  • 5pb. - is a Japanese video game manufacturer and record label for video game and anime music.
  • 720p - like 1080p, refers to the vertical resolution of video files. Can indicate encodes from a Blu-Ray source, or more commonly high definition TV (HDTV) sources. 720p is considered the "threshold" of high-definition on BakaBT; anything lower than this is standard-definition.
