< report >I was trying to see if I could write a script to replace the title with the first name in English releases for each vn as a stop gap, but I have no idea how to code and it got daunting. I feel like something like that would not take that much effort idk.

< report >I do like to be able to choose title languages like what Anilist does. Doesn't have to be as detailed as per individual title. Just do it like Anilist and I'll be happy.

Even for characters and staff too. Anilist recently implemented that

< report >Bad recording of the experimental new VN title editing form.

This is a break from the current "Main title / original title" fields in that the original title is now always entered first and the romanization second. The romanization field doesn't show up if the title is already in Latin alphabet. I'm sure this is going to take a while to get used to for long-time contributors, and is especially annoying at first due to inconsistency with other database entries. I do suspect that this approach is less confusing for new editors and overall less error-prone, but feedback welcome. I'll probably update other DB entries with a similar title/name editing interface for consistency, if this ends up working out.

< report >#30, this is probably gonna sound real stupid, but what would be wrong with just detecting if one field is all latin alphabet while the other field isn't all latin alphabet and automatically switching/alerting the user?

< report >It already warns if you get it wrong, it's just inconsistent with the rest of the site and hence prolly somewhat confusing.

< report >To me it looks good, just a liiiiitle minor suggestion about the UI: I think the official title checkbox could go to the right side of the title box instead of under it, it will make it easier to select it and will avoid missclicking on the other option (the description could go at the FAQs instead).

Maybe sometime later it could detect existing VN before creating an entry, just like the actual system? Take this as a request for a future addition when you are feeling bored, it's not that important with the current system working as intended.Last modified on 2022-02-06 at 13:02

Hmm. Kinda yes, kinda no. I'd like to integrate the guidelines into the forms at some point with info-buttons and stuff, but as long as we don't have that yet I think it's more useful to have some important explanations in-line.

You mean, what the current form already does? That's not going away.
