- All torrents must contain our tracker (http://anidex.moe:6969/announce), preferably as the primary tracker for optimal statistics tracking.
- Torrent name should be as descriptive as possible.
- If the file contains video/audio, the format/resolution/codecs should be mentioned.
- For example: [Group] Series name - ep (resolution video audio).ext
- If it is not a commonly used archive (zip, rar, 7z, etc), the tools for decompression should be mentioned.

Video based content guidelines
- DVD source video is limited to 576p.
- Web source video is limited to 1080p or source resolution, whichever is lower.
- TV source video is by default limited to 1080p. SD channels, however, are limited to 480p.
- Blu-ray source video is limited to 1080p.
- UHD source video is limited to 3840x2160p.
- Naturally, untouched sources are not bound by these limits.
- Comments should be used to express gratitude, asking questions regarding the torrent, or offering constructive criticism.
- Shitposting and trolling may lead to warnings and/or bans.
- Torrents uploaded within a group will be marked as authorised () if the torrent filename contains the group tag.
- This is so that you can see at a glance whether a release tagged with a group genuinely came from that group.
- Groups will have the ability to choose whether they want to allow non-group members to upload torrents containing their tag in future.
- Members who have contributed a significant amount of good content to AniDex will be promoted to a "Trusted member".
- Torrents uploaded by trusted members will be marked as trusted ().
- This only applies to torrents which can't be classified into a group.
- The authorised marker takes precedence over the trusted marker if a torrent happens to be tagged with both.
- Use [spoiler] tags in torrent descriptions where appropriate, such as placing mediainfo dumps.
- Do not use tags that are not your own or at least make it extremely clear to everyone that you are the one responsible for the upload unless you are reuploading an original release.
- Do not add your own tags when reuploading an original release.
- If these rules are not obeyed, those torrents will be removed if reported by the group/person commonly seen as the owner of the tag(s). This especially applies to remake torrents. Always add your own tag unless you are reuploading an original release.
- Although only hinted at above, we will of course remove any troll torrents tagged with "A-sucks", "B-is-slow", or such if reported by "A" or "B".
- Remakes for the sake of adding watermarks or such are not allowed.
- Remakes of JPG/PNG-based releases are not allowed without exceptions since there is most often no point in making such.
- Uploaders are encouraged to leave a complete description of the release on the torrent information page. This is especially true for batches.
