Some sub-units and solo singles have their own threads, so you might want to link those rather than the member/group thread. For example, Furuhata Nao's debut single Alface can be found here: http://stage48.net/forum/index.php?threads/furuhata-naos-debut-cd-alface.20045/ When posting a new release here, you might want to make a thread in the Subunit/Solo News & Discussion section and link to that rather than the member thread.
