< report >After many years of working on this database, it has become abundantly clear to me that what this community really needs is not another boring database of minor staff and stuff. What this bunch of lonely nerds needs, instead, is love and companionship. To that end, I'm refocussing and rebranding this database to be a dating site specifically targeted towards fans of visual novels.

This change of focus will not happen in just a day. Over the upcoming month(s), I will be gradually rolling out new features to help you nerds find your perfect soul mate, whether real or imaginary. The first feature, already live with the launch of this announcement, allows you to describe yourself in terms of our large and comprehensive trait database. Simply add traits to your profile and they will be available for others to see. In future updates I will introduce more features to allow your best friends to describe you in terms of character traits as well, in case you can't think of ways to describe yourself. And further down the line will be features to match your personal traits with other users and characters on this site, so you will never have to be alone anymore.

To foster creativity among our users and to keep with the overall theme of this website, we will not be adding or approving new traits for the sole purpose of describing oneself. Rather, you may only describe yourself with the traits intended for describing visual novel characters.

I am ashamed to admit that it took me far too long to recognize the actual needs of this community. People have been asking for social features for a long time - friend lists, private messages, public activity timelines, notifications, avatars, forum signatures, clubs, waifus, husbandos - all of these requests clearly pointed to a need for a visual novel specific dating site. I am sorry it took so long, but I've woken up now and decided to leave you out in the cold no longer.

With warm fuzzy feelings.

2022-04-02 update: The dating thing was obviously a joke and the promised features will not happen. But the feature that lets you add traits to your profile can stay.Last modified on 2022-04-02 at 08:29

< report >Thank you for thinking of us, Yorhel. I wonder how this DB will look after the complete transformation. I bet it will will be fun for people to use traits to describe themselves! I've been thinking about it while adding traits to VN characters, which traits will I use to describe myself?

With that in mind, I am definitely less exited about this database turning into a full blown social network or dating site. I like collecting and cataloging info about fictional characters a lot more than chatting with real humans over the internet.

By the way, not all nerds are lonely. Personally, I'm in no need of another love partner. I already am in a serious relationship and we have been happy together for 5 years. My SO is completely aware of my strange hobby and supports me fully. We have a cat and lots of friends.Last modified on 2022-04-01 at 05:11

LOL I thought the same. I sweated a little! At worst, I thought he was rolling back on his decision of adding minor staff.

< report >Yet another example of how out of touch the admins are. I've already given up on the touch of another human being and dedicated myself solely to cartoon women long ago. Too little, too late. At least the ability to declare this in my profile might allow me to ward off the hordes of women vying for my affection.
