< report >btw can i ask why sorting wishlist in asc/desc give me result high-low-med or med-low-high? didn't it should high-med-low or low-med-high like before? i think we should have one column in database to save this high-med-low priority rather than sort it based on alphabetic order

< report >is it possible to automatically set Finish date when you click Finished on Label???
it's hard to remember when you finished previous titles. For example You change from Playing to finished 03-05-2018 And that date will be showed in column finish dateLast modified on 2020-01-07 at 09:24

- Add a new "if this label is assigned, the item is always private" label property, overruling any assigned public labels. Not sure adding more complexity to the public/private algorithm is going to help make it any more intuitive, though.

I think this is the way to go, it allows for a high degree of flexibility with the private labels.

< report >Nearly a month Late..... but thank you for this update.

Decided to commit to reading VN's again in my free time, and being able to setup the lists the way I want is a big improvement over the way it used to be.

I've been switching to using the DB dump instead of the API for most purposes.

Since titles that were previously set as Unknown are now titles without any labels and thus private, I can't use the DB dump to find that information.

I've created a new label to serve the same purpose that I used the 'Unknown' label for.
(In my case I used it as "owned" but not yet started playing.)

For the titles that I already have in that unlabelled state, what's the best way to assign this new label to all of them? Using the API?

It turns out I only have 42 such titles so using the API should be pretty simple and easy but if there's another way of doing this for a higher number, let me know.Last modified on 2020-02-07 at 19:20

Seems faster to me to update those 42 manually than script it through the API, but if you insist on automating it, yeah, that's the way to do it.

< report >API-related: Would it be possible to add the "vote" field of the get ulist call to the filter options? I'm currently trying to get the highest 20 and lowest 20 votes of a user, but as the results include null values, I basically have to fetch as many results as I can and manually filter out all the null ones, hoping I am getting to 20 actual votes. Or am I misunderstanding the concept?

You can filter by (label=7).

< report >API: To change ulist labels on a title, do we just send a command like
set ulist 1 {"labels":[1,10]}
and omit other fields that we don't want to change?
Also, since setting status is equivalent to setting labels 1-4 (the original vnlist labels), how does setting the labels relate to setting the status, or am I misunderstanding something?
As asked at #52, how do we remove all non-voted labels?
Do we send a command like
set ulist 1 {"labels":null} ?

Yup.

Removing all labels:
set ulist 1 {"labels":[]}

how does setting the labels relate to setting the status
That was a copy-paste error in the docs, "set ulist" never had a status field you could set. It's all labels now.

No, but you have so many I can run a query for that if you want.

< report >Just ask for help.
In "My Visual Novel List" i got 4k7+ novel with label "Unknown" before ( Mean games i got in hand and still not play )
With new list it move to "No label", and those novel not show to public.
I'm ask if there any way to move them all in new label or multi select and label them ?
And i'm don't know code or programer.Last modified on 2020-02-10 at 18:30

< report >@hvvnn: If you create a new label for those I can move all the "No Label" VNs to that.

< report >Why not manage No Label like a regular built-in label, allowing us to set its visibility?

Can we have an "inner join" kind of select? Show a VN if and only if it is tagged with all the selected labels (not strict).
Also, update the "My lists" filters to allow us to select what lists we want to search? Same, with "multi-select" and "inner join" modes.

< report >E: Urgh sorry this update topic is probably not really fitting since nothing regarding VN tags was changed...ah well now it's posted :(

General question regarding the tag dump: Does anybody have good suggestions to only get the tags that would basically describe a genre? Or are there other places where I could find something like that?

Currently trying to figure out what types of VNs a user likes and working with that. Results in a first quick tests are kind of...unhelpful, to say the least. Things like "University", "Axe Combat", "Combat with Clubs" etc. appear, which is not really helpful. I was considering to filter those out that don't appear very often, but since "University" appears more often than "Horror", that probably will not work well. Any ideas apart from manually choosing a selection (prone to missing stuff)?Last modified on 2020-02-16 at 21:15

< report >With notes now being easier to enter on the VN list screen, wouldn't it be nice to be able to set notes on v# pages? There's even an eye icon after you add something to your list that would match the option thing on the VN list display, but it does nothing when clicked: link

My personal use case for this is that I'd like to be able to easily put notes on VNs I wishlist (which I use as a potentially-read-later list) so I can see why I put them there, like if it was a recommendation or it just looked cool. Doing that right now would be very clunky as I would have to go to the wishlist screen and navigate to the right page / search after adding the VN on an entirely different screen.

< report >Is there maybe a way to make the way labels display on the wishlist in particular less... clunky?

When opening my wishlist now I don't get that convenient view I got where all my high stuff was at the top followed by medium stuff then low stuff, the whole thing is just in alphabetical order (yes I can sort it but it just feels like a step backwards).

On top of that it feels redundant to label things in the wishlist tab like "Wishlist, Wishlist-High". I'm already on the wishlist so why does it need to say wishlist twice in the labels? That may be useful on other screens but on the wishlist it just takes up space since I already know it's on my wishlist.
