Are there any rules?
We don't have many rules. We simply ask that you make sure you comment (to thank a capper for his/her efforts) and credit (grande_caps and/or a specific capper) for the caps you're snagging. You can also find our rules listed in the userinfo.

Is this a cross-posting community? Can I post my own caps here?
No, this is not a cross-posting community. You can't post your own caps here unless you are a capper here. The current list of grande_caps cappers can be found in the userinfo.

Can you tell me how you cap? Can you give me a step-by-step guide to capping? What programs do you use to cap?
Most of us use VLC or KMPlayer to cap, but past that, no, we're not going to teach you how we cap. It's easy enough to search through Google to find some helpful guides on your own.

Do you cap fanvids/webshows?

Can I request caps?
Yes, you can do that here. Please read the guidelines there :) You can see what's already been requested here.

Why can't I access the request post?
You have to be a member of grande_caps to see the request post. Requesting is something we offer to our members only.

I know you post caps of [insert currently airing show here] weekly. When will the most recent caps of this show be posted?
Please remember that we do everything at grande_caps around our own lives, school, work, and other obligations. We definitely do our best to post caps of currently airing shows as quickly as we can, so asking, "Are they up yet? How about now? Now? Now???" is going to be the very last thing in the world that will get us to post caps faster. It's just annoying and rude. Be patient. And with the latest downloading events (Mu closing and other sited taking links down), it's more difficult to find good quality files, and that might slow us down.

Can I cap with grande_caps? Are you looking for new cappers?
We have an application post here. It will say if we're actively looking for new cappers. You can still try when we're not open to new cappers, you might impress us. But we might just save your application to the next time we're actively looking. There will be a new post to grande_caps when we're looking for new cappers.

Can I use caps from grande_caps to make fanart/icons/graphics/etc.?
Yes, but please remember to credit grande_caps and/or the capper who posted the caps.

Can I add your caps for a certain movie/show to the gallery for my corresponding movie/show fansite?

The download link for a certain zip file has expired. What do I do?
First, leave a comment at the respective entry, politely letting the capper know that the download link/zip file has expired, and wait patiently for a reply. If, after a week, you do not get a response, please post a reply to this entry. Include the URL to the entry with the expired download link/zip file, and include a link to the comment you left at that entry a week ago. At this point, sit tight while I hunt down the zip file for you. :)

Does grande_caps accept affiliates?
No, sorry.

This site looks a lot like the old rawr_caps, why is that?
grande_caps was started by some of the cappers from rawr_caps. When it closed down we decided to move here :)

I have a question not answered here. What now?
If you're absolutely sure you've looked through this entire FAQ post, then go ahead and reply to this entry with your question. We'll get back to you with an answer as soon as possible. :)

zip files

We have a lot of caps from the old site, but we wanted to ask all of you a favor :) Do any of you have any old zip files you have downloaded from rawr_caps in the past? And if so would you be able to share it with us so we can upload it to the galleries?

Thanks in advance for any help :)

For those of you asking how long it will take to get the site up, the answer is that we don't know. We are currently sorting through some things and setting up the galleries. There will be more info later! :)
