< report >Hi. Would you mind explaining why you removed the YouTube link? Surely something is better than nothing for anyone coming across this in the future. And since it's kinetic and so short, it's not like anything is missing.

Or is there a rule against posting video links, even when it's not otherwise possible to find the VN to download?

< report >We only add official sources in the release entries. The only exception so far is alternative links for freewares (if available) and archived websites. If we start adding videos to release entries we might have a problem of when to add them and which ones if there are more than one playthrough.

In the past we had some people suggesting in adding youtube videos in main VN entries or as form of translation, but, if I remember correctly, those discussions ended at nothing in concrete.

Youtube translations were actually permitted once upon a time, but were purged later on. After all, watching a video is something completely different from playing the game. As for simple playthroughs of the games, well they have never been allowed on the db.

< report >Unfortunate certain exceptions can't be made, but I understand. Thank you for the explanation.
