< report >With a few updates:

Doc pages (FAQ etc) are now first-class database entries and are editable by moderators. This should significantly lower the barrier to changes and hopefully encourages more clear and higher quality guidelines and guides and whatnot.

As an unfortunate result of the above, the d1.2.3 formatting codes don't work anymore. To link to a doc section, you can use the new d6#5 or d12#2.1 formats. All such links in forum posts and edit summaries have been updated automatically to avoid confusion.

Unrelated to above, the producer aliases are now separated by a newline, just like aliases for other entries (VNs & characters). This does cause minor API breakage, but otherwise doesn't really affect anyone.

< report >looks like this update abandoned a d8 page, which used to be a development roadmap and known bugs list, and i find that unfortunate. this page might encourage someone to contribute a code, at least it did so for me, as i have sent you some patches based on it in the past.

< report >Didn't realize anyone cared about that page, I certainly hadn't updated it in years. I suppose I'll re-add it in a slightly different form, with useful info for prospective contributors. We're indeed lacking on development info right now.

< report >d2 has some faulty markup:

Images that are NSFW should be flagged as such, see the image guidelines above. - Screenshots have to be unmarked: they shouldn't contain any copyright information, website URL, or other text that's not present in the original screenshot.

I'd presume a linebreak is missing before "- Screenshots have to be unmarked"

I'm also a bit irked by the inconsistency of using an en dash in "... when they play a very minimal role – at least 99% of ..." but regular dashes elsewhere.Last modified on 2018-03-27 at 10:05
