This is my suggestion of Restructuring TYPE.

(A)
Remove "Anthology" and "Copy Book" Check box and involve them to Type

(B) List of Type
Commercial Manga / 商業漫画単行本
Commercial Magazine / 雑誌
Commercial Anthology Comics / 商業アンソロ ←New!!
Commercial Novel / 商業ノベル
Commercial Soft / 商業ソフト
Commercial Artbook / 商業アートブック
Commercial CG / 商業CG
Commercial Movie Works/ 商業映像作品 ←New!!
Commercial Music Works / 商業音楽作品 ←New!!
Commercial other / 商業その他

Manga (Part) / 漫画 (抜粋)

Doujinshi / 同人誌
Doujin Copy Book / 同人コピー誌 ←New!!
Doujin Anthology / 同人アンソロ ←New!!
Doujin CG / 同人CG
Doujin Soft / 同人ソフト
Doujin Movie Works / 同人映像作品 ←New!!
Doujin Music Works / 同人音楽作品 ←New!!
Information Flier / ペーパー ←New!!
Doujin Other / 同人その他
Convention Catalog / イベントカタログ ←New!!

Translation / 翻訳本 ←New!!
Bootleg / 海賊版

Unknown / 不詳


(C) Removed Type
Calendar / カレンダー
Postcard / ポストカード
Poster / ポスター
Shitajiki / 下敷き
Telephon Card / テレホンカード

If Calender or Postcard are necessary for Type, how about the latest trends like cover of dakimakura, hard case for cellphone and water proof poster for bath?
Dakimakura in Wikipedia (English)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dakimakura

Strap (Lanyard for cellphone) or Pin Badge are major doujin goods, too.
At least they are more popular goods than shitajiki now.

So what I want to say is concrete names of goods are not necessary for Type.
I think Other is enough for them.

(D) Complex item
I don't have an answer to complex item.
Like a set of doujin music CD with doujinshi.

For complex items, I have gotten manga that was bundled with: pencil board, audio CD, visual booklet, scale model. About two months ago, the tokyo bookstores had a manga that came with panties.....

One problem with complex items is, how do you decide whether an omake item is really "part of" the book, manga, DVD, or other item it came with? For example, when the book かんおけ (Kan'oke) by Amano Yoshitaka was published, the first printing came with a poster. Subsequent printings of the same book did not include the poster. I no longer recall whether publicity for the book said anything about the poster, but there's nothing in or on the book itself that hints at a poster; it's just that, if you got the first printing as a new book, it came with a poster taped to it. So you could say it's part of the item (buy the book, get the poster), or you could say it isn't (buy the book without the poster, you'll never miss it).

When an item has been included as a premium but is packaged in a way that makes it optional, I'm not sure it is really "part of" the primary item for purposes of this database. (I'm not sure it isn't, either.)

Of course, there are also true multimedia "complex items" that come together and need to be classified together. Anything that comes as a boxed set, for example.

Could be combined into a "Merchandise" selection.

Call it "Bundle", which could contain a combination of pretty much anything? Could be specified by a word list.

Since there are now a variety of types to pick from i'd like to ask you to document these tags. It's not clear to me what the difference is supposed to be between doujin soft and commercial soft.

By documenting these tags you lower the probability to tag an entry wrong. New users can get into the site a lot faster and know the meaning behind those tags.

I ask you to fill out the info box for each type with a sentence or two so that even new users like me know when and how to use a tag properly.

Sometimes it's so complicated and the boundary between commercial and doujin soft is quite vague.
So I say it's how the software is distributed for the moment.

For physical edition (≠digital or downloading edition), if it has JAN code (≒EAN code)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Article_Number_(EAN)
it's commercial soft.
For digital edition... uh,... check physical edition of it.

And one more thing, it's rating.
For adult game, if there's a mark which shows some kind of organization like EOCS or CERO rated it, it's commercial soft though there are a little exception like Norn.
https://www.doujinshi.org/browse/circle/3582/Norn/
Norn is doujin circle but they request CSA to examine their works.

This is valuable insight you gave me. This is something that should be in the info field of every type. A concise list of requirements would make all these tags a lot easier to understand without a lookup in forum, which only a selected few do anyway.

Now commercial other and doujin other are missing. Which entries are intended for these two?
What's Shitajiki ? https://www.doujinshi.org/browse/type/15/Shitajiki/

Document ALL the things!

Yeah...i guess the sentence was terribly phrased. I meant the documentation for comm.other and doujin other is missing. Listing a few example items that are tagged with comm.other or doujin other.

What is the type "Commercial Mook / ムック" ? google doesn't give me a decent answer and there are roughly 3items tagged as com.mook!

Please document your types/tags !
