< report >As the website does have a social side to it with discussions and reviews, a following system should be implemented too. MAL and many other DB websites have slowly evolved, vndb not so much.

Don't know how many people would want this though. I know in the communities I'm in when I brought it up they thought it'd be a good idea.

I put a poll.

This is not a social media platform.
VNDB having this system wouldn't automatically turn it into one either

that being said i don't particularly care for this function in this site since i think almost nothing would change with it anyway, VNDB already does well enough when it comes to social interactions. what i do think that should be prioritized and would enrich both the social side as well as the database one would be functions that would allow the users to increase customizations in their profiles, such as a profile description/about me, Cards/Grid display on their lists, a function to favorite characters or traits, maybe even staff/developers/seiyuu etc. this last item would already make VNStat a hundred times better and the profiles themselves much more informative

< report >As an alternative, you could potentially keep bookmarks to your friends' lists, with the entries sorted by last modified. Example with your list.Last modified on 2021-10-30 at 16:44

< report >nobody cares that kind of things in here. The website is made to be simple and not to be a complicated one like social media.

This website is not mean to find friends and stuff. Its only to vote, bookmark, review, and discuss about visual novel. If you want to socialize and have friends, join the discord channel of the publishers than having a feature in here. And also its more hassle to the devs if they put this one in the website

< report >The real answer, of course, is because I have no friends and hence no reason to implement this.

< report >and Yorhel's answer is surprisingly the only one that makes sense out of all of the above
