The "delete traits with your script" thread

So, I figured I'd make a separate thread to notify you whenever I need you to run the script to purge deleted traits from character profiles. Since you've said I shouldn't hesitate on asking you to do that, might as well take you up on that offer.

Bisexual Sex just got removed. Was a short lived trait, but still got applied to quite a few characters, so it'd be better if you'd purge them.

Oh, I've also tagged the other tagmods with this thread, so that they'd use the same place to ask for you to run that script should the need arise. Less thread spam and more organized that way.

It's been a while since that script has run, so there's a bunch more entries with other deleted traits. Here's an overview of traits that have been assigned and will be removed and a list of affected entries.

If there's no plan to ressurect those traits I can run the script for all of them.

Let's see...

Farting is useless. We already have Face-farting and Face-farting for the sexual purposes and other than that it doesn't worth tagging.

Polydactyly has been around for years and is such a rare condition in fiction as in real life that I can't imagine being used much. Seems like it was made for one specific character without any more applications. Delete.

Kogyaru & Onee-Gyaru: I have no idea about the subcategories of Gyaru, but if the more knowledgeable on the matter say these tags are badly defined, then sure, they can go.

Unlockable is release specific, and we have similar things among tags that are less prone to confusion. Delete.

Bisexual Sex - I shouldn't have accept it even for a short while, it was lapse of judgment. I knew it was going to be a mess, I dunno what I was thinking... I've made Lesbian Sex Only and Men with Men Sex Only: used in conjuncture with their parent traits, it should serve much better than this mess to pinpoint characters who have sex with both genders in separate scenes.

Desu wa & Desu no - I'll admit, I have no idea about most of the traits under Talking Patterns. Seems to be redundant with Desu, but then again, I don't speak Japanese. Someone with actual knowledge of the language should take a look at them. If these two variants provide any difference in perceived characterization compared to Desu, they I have no trouble with restoring them. If not, then it's useless fluff that can go.

Word Repetition - I'm kinda baffled why was this removed... Seems about as much of a valid trait as anything else under Talking Patterns, has been around for a while, seems clearly defined and has been used. If the one removing it still a tagmod, care to point out why was this deemed useless of all things there? I'd actually restore this unless there's a specific reason for its deletion.Last modified on 2018-12-09 at 15:38

I believe Word Repetition has been removed by u31981, who has basically disappeared of the face of the Earth. She hasn't been on VNDB for almost a year, so I don't think you are gonna get an answer as to why it has been removed...

I think Desu wa warrants a separate trait and is not redundant with Desu. Desu wa comes off as something a (haughty) rich girl would say. Desu, on the other hand, just sounds polite (and a bit childish, I guess). At least that's the impression I get.Last modified on 2018-12-09 at 17:46

I restored Desu wa, Desu no and Word Repetition. With that being said, I'm going to clean up the sexual traits part a bit, so there'll probably be a couple more traits on the chopping block very soon, so you can wait for that if you want.Last modified on 2018-12-10 at 06:18
