Information on Indexing

The primary way to contribute is to become an Indexer and add data for comics or upload cover scans we don't yet have. Here are some links to get started!

Still looking for more to do? Help the GCD by cleaning up our database through any one of our Special Projects!

Entering data into the GCD must follow guidelines established by the gcd-policy list. Those rules can be found in the Formatting Documentation which is updated regularly.
