Support status is a special setting for a particular artist credit. The support status should be used when the song or album has a clear separation of main artists and support artists.
- Backing vocals, for example singing chorus when the main vocals are sung by another vocalist.
- Guest artists. An artist might invite other guest artists to produce remixes, released together with the original songs. Those guest artists should be marked as support.
- For example, electroll by 8#Prince
- The same applies if the album is titled for example "feat. Hatsune Miku" and there's 1 or 2 songs with other Vocaloids: those supporting Vocaloids should be marked support.
Support status removes the artist(s) from the artist string (the one that says "producers feat. vocalists). Albums/songs also won't be shown on artist's page if the artist was credited as support.
Person who made or animated the PV. Required for Music PV and Drama PV song types.
Arranger is the person handling the instruments and producing the music. Most of the time this is related to remixes where the remixer is generally credited with the arranger role, but sometimes for original songs the roles for composition and arrangement (music production) are divided as well.
The person who created the song. Most of the time for original songs, the composer and arranger are the same person, but not always.
Circles get this role by default. Sometimes it's necessary to give the role to custom artists, other groups or individual artists if they're handling the distribution.
Person who made the illustration for either a PV or album cover. Also booklet illustrations.
Person who wrote the lyrics.
Person who operated the voice synthesizer.
If person A simply operated the synthesizer and person B did majority of the vocal tuning, then person A should be marked as support and B is the main voice manipulator. If an existing vocal data from another song was used, the vocal data provider role should be used for person B instead.
