< report >I'm all for it, but have no idea how add and maintain the links to DLsite. They have quite a few items, but no way to automatically and reliably link those together with VN entries in the database. :-(

I also sent them a mail quite some time ago to ask whether they allow sending affiliate earnings to a paypal account, but have never received a response. I guess I should try again some time...

< report >You could have it be another field in the release editing interface. Like "English DLsite product ID: RE079803" and the site would link that to http://www.dlsite.com/ecchi-eng/work/=/product_id/RE079803.html

(you don't even have to point it to /eng/ if it's a non-adult game! neat)Last modified on 2011-07-28 at 01:23

< report >"Currently, we only have links to Play-Asia and J-List"...
link is currently the only real eroge shop selling overseas, do you have contacted them?

< report >@atlantima: I can't say I'm a huge fan of mixing commercial interest (affiliate links) with regular and editable database info. But perhaps there is no other way around it. :-/

Paletweb doesn't seem to have an affiliate system. I could contact them to discuss an alternative solution, but I'd rather do that after I've figured out some way to link their items together with our database entries.

< report >Anything we can do if we notice "missing links"?

Example: v7230 that has no J-List link even though they're selling it at link, and v6992, which is at link
edit: also link is v6918, link is v4041, link is v7261, link is v5844, v24 is missing link (r15365)
link is v4059 (Play-Asia link is there, but not J-List)
link is v7867
link is v7870Last modified on 2011-11-25 at 02:48

< report >@atlantima: Thanks! I'll add those links in a bit. The problem with J-List links is that they aren't added automatically, so I have to manually check their latest additions (which is never their "latest additions", no idea how their sorting works) and add the links to VNDB. Obviously I haven't been doing that for a while. :-(

< report >Glad to help. Here's some more:
link v5240
link v4234

And from Play-Asia:

link v7815
link v1120
link v3263 (Title is wrong, typical of PA)

If I find any more, I'll let you know.Last modified on 2011-11-25 at 16:43

< report >Thanks!

The Play-Asia links are fetched automatically, though: if you find a link to be missing, check whether the release has the correct JAN code. In none of your links do the releases have a JAN code in common with PA.
