< report >not sure if intentional or not, but I noticed you can't vote into whether another review is helpful or not if you have also made your own review for that VN beforehand.

< report >so what happened to an earlier vote I made then? cause I actually voted another review as helpful sometime ago before I made my own review. did it just disappear or does it still count?

< report >Not sure it's fair to expect him to write a review for something he played nearly 13 years ago lol.

2. Genesis

It all started right after yorhel finished reading Ever17. Highly impressed by the masterpiece, several questions came to his mind: After learning about visual novels, why did it still take several months to find this game? Why hasn't he ever heard about it before? How can a visual novel of that quality go by unnoticed in almost all online anime and gaming communities? And more importantly: Are there more visual novels like that out there?

guess where this is from?

< report >reviews have to be either under 800 characters or over 1000 characters, its very stupid. i couldnt trim out any more characters or add more so i just spammed spaces to get the full review character count. please fix thisLast modified on 2020-09-20 at 01:26

< report >I would like to bring up the suggestion to let reviewers be able to rate whether review is helpful or not. I know it was said that it could lead to abuse in downvoting rival reviews but I doubt 1 vote will really make a difference, not to mention a reviewer might also like someone else's review to upvote them in the reverse scenario. this also puts the first reviewer at a disadvantage you know, since the next person who decides to review can downvote your review before making their own if they disagree with you. and if the votes end up not counting(since for example I was able to upvote someone else's review before I made mine), if we assume that there's gonna be a point where more of the new users who play decide to make their own mini reviews, then a lot of reviews aren't really gonna get that much scores at all since the people who care about reading a review are the ones more likely to review themselves, whereas the people who get into a VN for certain tags/genre or just on the premise aren't really going to be dissuaded by reviews and just use the normal 1-10 rating.

< report >Is it just me or is the Full Review submissions locked? I can submit Mini Reviews, but it's not letting me submit any Full Reviews

EDIT: (sorry, I figured it now, thank you. I thought you needed to be under 1000 characters, but the requirement is actually over 1000 characters.)Last modified on 2020-09-24 at 06:42

< report >dumb question but can you post a review on a game you've made or have had a part in making?

idk about you but it sounds like shilling to me if you review your own game. if it was voting that'd be one thing but much fewer people write a review than vote so it's hard for it to get filtered/negatedLast modified on 2020-09-26 at 22:19

< report >Is there a way to view which visual novels have been getting reviews recently as opposed to just checking vndb pages?

< report >I think comments in reviews is a mistake. Unless you're also listing the reviews in the discussions tab. Otherwise you're making two different places where people are discussing the game. I think it's pretty confusing

< report >@136: The homepage and this list.

@137: Hmm, listing reviews on the VN's discussions tab doesn't seem like a bad idea.

< report >@139 Perhaps it's a forum post converted into review?
