< report >It's piracy regardless of whether money is involved. But we allow them in the DB anyway because translations do provide value.

< report >To be precise: we do not care about the legality of releases. As long as it is a VN release of ANY kind, it's listed. This means that we list translations that got removed from their original site because C&D and VNs put together from stolen assets.

What we do NOT do is linking full pirate releases.

< report >r72196 is the same translation that r71332 reported as MTL, they don't fix it. r72197 is MTL too. Lately the group is using MTL translations. Overly poor translations.Last modified on 2020-06-01 at 00:25

< report >Decay previously postulated that the title can be considered a Vn. I haven't tried it, but maybe I should, as it has been brought up a few times already.

< report >Sol Press has parted ways with Laplacian (blog), meaning that r64814 is not happening. Mirai Radio (r60367) has already been deleted. In addition, the stretch goals for the Irotoridori kickstarter were not met (link), meaning that r60690 and r60689 should probably not be considered officially announced at this point.

< report >There's no need to keep duplicates of characters for Yotsunoha, they are the same characters the only difference is a 3 year time skip but they still act almost the same, and that isn't enough for a separate character page.

I suggest keeping these pages c56624, c19166 and c56623 of the characters.

< report >You are not the first to bring these games up. These are pretty popular games, but you might be right that they do not belong here. I will have to check them out and see for myself.

< report >What the translator wants is irrelevant as to what should or should not be on vndb.
From what I can decipher from this message is that the download link was removed because it was a poor translation used as a proof of concept for tl insertion?

< report >Umm...I don't know if it's correct to post in this is this thread.

How to remove an alias that is noted as "referenced"? Even reverting to previous revison got "still referenced". Is there any difference between aliases that can't be removed with those can be removed?
For example, I saw Traumatizer added an alias to Aoki Ruriko: s11831.5, referring link, but now I visited that site, finding "Hanasaki Kokomi" isn't under Aoki Ruiko's alias any longer, but under another voice actress Ono Saki. So I want to remove that alias but can't find any approch to.

(Sorry if that was asked, searching with key word that separated by a white space gives so many result that I couldn't judge whether it has been asked)Last modified on 2020-06-09 at 23:42

< report >I am no expert but "reference" should refer to the fact that the alias is linked to a role. Meaning you must unlink the alias from any role before being able to remove it. Think of "reference" as "locked". When you want to revert, it says "still referenced" to prevent you from breaking those links. It's a safety.

How I would do it: I would start by adding a new alias to the other seiyuu. If it doesn't work because the alias already exists (very probable), I would try to rename the old alias. If it doesn't work (I said I am no expert but I don't see why an alias couldn't be renamed), you are stuck with removing all the roles from the alias before adding the new alias.
By not removing the roles first, it would allow you to not have to make two edits instead of one (by switching aliases), and it would also prevent you from forgetting to re-link some alias.

Use t8242 next time you have a question about how to edit something.
