No, the newer ELSPA logo originated in 1999, not 2000 as you stated.

I was once part of http://www.kinezu.ro/defconsoft/index.html, and the data from the PSXDatacenter was mostly built on our data from 15 years ago. And it's not error-free. Nor am I, as I slipped a few cells in the database and stated Shaolin as 1999 release, which of course it wasn't. It was released March, 2003 ;)

Well you can't fault anyone for getting things wrong if we are using your incorrect (and uncorrected) data as reference. :p

Anyways, do you have any links to official sources on the matter?

Although I don't have a reliable resource to help me understand the information, numerous Japanese rating companies seem to all individually regulate adult videos and, to a lesser extent, adult video games. Here are some various resources: 1, 2, 3

Content Soft Association (CSA), or コンテンツ ソフト協同組合. Defunct in 2010 and is now a part of JSRC.


East Japan Content Software (EJCS), or 東日本コンテンツ・ソフト. Defunct in 2015 and is now a part of JCRC.


Japan Video Ethics Examination Organization, or 一般社団法人日本映像倫理審査機構. Renamed to JCRC in 2016.


Japan Contents Review Center (JSRC), or 日本コンテンツ審査センター. Previously known as Japan Video Ethics Examination Organization.


Japan Video Production and Sales Ethics Organization / Japan, Produce, Visual, Sell (JVSP), or 日本映像ソフト制作.


Visual Software Content Industry Cooperative (VSIC), or ビジュアルソフト コンテンツ産業協.

Do we have a request to add SMECCV to the ratings list in the DB?

At this point I'd rather not add additional ratings until ratings can be reworked. I say this because I feel that all of these missing ratings (that are in this thread) should be something we could select, but also that adding them all into the drop-down list may be super annoying, especially since it would then space them out and most people are only using ACB, Cero, ELSPA, ESRB and PEGI options. Secondary to that is probably ClassInd.

If there is a better way to select ratings to put on entries then I would do it, but really would like to wait until a better way is determined.
