I'm a survivor, this is my story.

The amount of mental damage I have received from this, frankly, disturbing incident is immense. Since then, I needed to go to multiple therapy sessions and even then, I am literally shaking. My mental state is in an array and I can not concentrate on anything without being reminded of those demons from *that* incident. I wake, trembling, scared that it might happen again. Yet, I know by sharing my story, I can hopefully bring about some change, that my story will inspire others to take action.

I hope my story is able to bring hope and justice to those in my position. Take a stand and be the change you want to be.

Hint to #2: If you are not involved in the dispute and you have nothing to add to it, you're better off remaining silent rather than trivialize the issue and aggravate everyone in the process.

#1, no screenshots at the moment because nobody has added ones that don't break the rules. Editing locked because a certain user kept breaking the rules and not doing things properly. If you can show that your screenshots are proper then I'm sure the game will be unlocked for you to post them.

#5, if you've already played it and definitively say that #3's is wrong (link), I don't get why you wouldn't just post your own screenshots instead of just taking down #3's. It feels borderline petty.

Maybe he doesn't have the game installed anymore? Taking down the incorrect screens is not petty - it's in the guidelines.

Taking down bad screenshots is not petty. Taking down screenshots for something you've played (and probably therefore have screenshots) and not uploading good ones is petty. The editing war was stupid and not doing anything besides just taking them down is stupid.

I fail to understand your thought process, Checkerpeck. Do you keep random screens from random games you have ever played on your PC? Fuukanou finished the game two months ago, if we go by when he rated it. And even if he still has the game installed, maybe he has cleared the save files, in which case he could only take screens from the beginning of the game, which is also discouraged. Do you see that you are being needlessly contrarian and obtuse?

It doesn't fall on Fuukanou to provide screens, it falls on the guy who first added incorrect screens to fix his own mistake, and because he didn't, someone else fixed it for him.

Now you are just making stuff up d2#6

after making the guidelines petty with your logic...

and because he didn't, someone else fixed it for him.
plus calling it "fixing" just make ya look worse or shall we erase vndb since it sure has many little mistakes? Of course not, that'd be silly. Not even something utterly broken is fixed by deleting it.

You can be "authoritarian", if you do it right (Greetings from Cpt. Obvious~). However you are not and making your strictness seem only ridiculous. There are so many other and even valid reasons you can state to justify that want for precision but all ya do is: "It's the rules". Of course that is far from being convincing.

Why are you trying to pick a fight that (a) you're not going to win and (b) doesn't serve anyone even if you did. This case is pretty simple:

No screenshots are better than bad screenshots.

No amount of rhetoric or "but it's not written like that in the rules!" is going to change that. If you're going to complain about leadership or argumentation style I suggest you just leave. It's a waste of time for everyone involved.

Hello everyone, after a bit of thinking about what would make a good set of screenshots, I propose these 10:

link (NSFW)
link (NSFW)

The reasoning behind the choices include the following: a mix between narration and voice, CG and tachi-e (there's no SD cut-ins), where there are tachi-e a balance between one and two people on screen, having a relatively large span of characters in (it's hard to get them all in but there's no point in just doing it for the sake of it), a mix between future and past (keeping in mind character appearances change with time). I don't believe any of my screenshots contain major spoilers but with a game where things change between past and future in the middle of it, this is inevitable if you want to give a fair representation of the game (also explains why I picked LIME chat over a screenshot of the title screen/choices), then you have to give somewhere- none of the screenshots from the future segment are too far from the start of the future segment. I have chosen 2 instead of the more usual 3 H screenshots because the focus on H has gone down in this game since HoshiOri (didn't play GinHaru).Last modified on 2019-09-07 at 23:15

Yeah, I'm gonna have to give my apologies too, I didn't know that what I was doing (even though as has been pointed out earlier in this thread) was what you were supposed to do, there were probably better ways around it, and I should have just have gathered my own screenshots and replaced it with a reason why the old screenshots were bad without making such a fuss. Sorry.

No worries! Glad we got this sorted out.

The only thing you could have done better, Fuukanou, was to make yourself clearer by directing llee1000 to the FAQ while quoting the pertinent part, the rest, like having to come up with replacements, is bs.
I understand not everyone wants to read "the rules" when contributing a bit, but you have no excuse when you persist in your behavior twice while not taking any time to read said "rules" you were pointed at.
