< report >Now that we have a more precise playtime of each VN, is it possible to change the lenght search to reflect that? At the moment, when searching a VN by lenght we can just choose between the old very short, short, medium, long, and very long category, but it would be really helpful if we could search like the realese date with a "≥", ">" , "≤", "<" and the playtime.

Edit: you could allow to move the root AND to the left to create a new AND at its right that would serve as an umbrella for the current query, allowing us to create a new branch.

Also, I don't know if it will be used a lot but I thought disabling part of a query could be useful for debugging. Taking my last query as an example, I get zero results. I was surprised so I wondered if maybe I did something wrong. However, the only way to check if I am right is to remove the second AND, check if the left branch is working, fix it eventually, then rebuild the second AND branch. Disabling a node and everything that is as its right could be helpful for debugging a query for those who are used to make complex queries. Just a thought.Last modified on 2021-10-20 at 04:42

< report >Nope, you must start with link and reach link. You can't move the root AND/OR.
