< report >When you search for "nitroplus" or even "nitro plus" (no quotes) in the lefthand search bar, you automatically get taken to DRAMAtical Murder for some reason; this is probably what 0% of people wantLast modified on 2022-02-22 at 03:52

< report >That's because it has a release with nitroplus in its name, I don't think it's a bug. If you want to see Nitroplus VNs you'll need to go to NITRO PLUS or use this filter.

< report >Ehmmm... Are you serious or just trolling?
That search bar is for VN only...

If you want to search for producers go hereLast modified on 2022-02-22 at 05:17

< report >#629 I use that search bar for everything, not just VNs, and I would assume many others use it the same way

Actually I use it to search for VNs almost none of the time and staff/producers almost all of the timeLast modified on 2022-02-22 at 05:20

< report >I made that mistake too when I was new here since there's a ton of options on the database. I really recommend this video to any newcomers who want to get acquainted with all the different areas of the site.

< report >I don't even think this is a mistake at this point; it's just an application of Hyrum's Law (link).

The bar on the left just says "search" and when I put anything except "nitroplus" in it works consistently and as I would expect, AND no one trying to get to the DRAMAtical Murder page would ever be typing "nitroplus" into that bar, so probably the way I (and assumedly others) try to use that search bar should just be how it works

< report >#633 But it only looks through VN titles, aliases and releases.

That's not supposed to happen. Searching for "Frontwing" there, for example, won't yield any results.

< report >Now I get it.
What Gambs is trying to say is that the left search bar should not only search for visual novels, but it should also search for producer and staff since the only thing it says in it is "search"; but it somehow became useful that at this point it shouldn't be changed/fixed.
Confusing for first time users since it doesn't specify what it is searching, but once you know how it works you will use it most of the time.

Maybe just rename it "search vn" and leave it at that?.Last modified on 2022-02-22 at 07:17

< report >#634 It did return results, just not in the visual novels section. Click on “producers” after searching and it is there

< report >Oh I see, looks like you use the vn search first and then switch to producers, but when it takes you directly to a vn, you don't get the option to do that. The only way to fix this will be to disable the feature where it takes you directly to the vn instead of showing a list of results when only one match is found.

Personally I find this quite useful as it saves me a lot of additional clicks, looks like you'll just have to go to the producers menu first and then search in these cases. Or use the 'Developer' filter in the general search.

< report >Yes, I prefer when it spares me a click too, especially for a keyboard oriented interaction.
However, I did fall into this trap multiple time, for Nitroplus too. It also doesn't spare you a click (two, in fact) when you search for everything but VN titles. The thing is, if you are a regular, you should know by now that, to search for producers, you click on, well... producers. It's one more click but, in the end, with the current system, this is the exact same number of clicks that if you used the search bar (coz it's clicking on the producer tab first then on the search bar instead of the search bar then on the producer tab).

The most popular way of doing it is to search on all the fields, producers, characters, staff, maybe tags and traits. You then gather the results in subsections instead of tabs. Honestly, I never liked this design but that's how websites do it. To take an example, link was searching automatically on releases. Really annoying behavior for someone like me who doesn't care about releases but manga or authors. Now, you have multiple sections and it's way better. It generally depends on how you clutter the result page. The way to not do it would be this. You search for Tezuka and you need to scroll down during five minutes until you find what you want.
You could still retain the one result = automatic redirection, which is cool.

< report >Neither tags nor traits that have Discretion or Discreet in their title can be found using the search, and they don't appear in the autosuggestion list when adding tags/traits.

Console tells me:
Content Security Policy: The page’s settings blocked the loading of a resource at inline (“script-src”).

< report >You are right, it's thanks to Dark Mode this time. Even if you don't use it, it screws with the pages (not just the logos but lot of things like the edit form and html anchors).
You get a cute free purple theme if you use it on vndb.
Doesn't even work properly if text has background-color, like for code blocks... no wonder I forgot I had it.Last modified on 2022-03-16 at 10:31

Edit: Never mind, I didn't notice there was a link to the Query part of the FAQs just down below the random link, seems like I misclicked after all. My bad.Last modified on 2022-04-09 at 10:52

< report >Imo, freewares shouldn't be listed in "shops" at the top of VN pages. If your trial is available on the same store page where the full game is sold, the trial is marked as costing money, which it doesn't, obviously. Example with Oku-sama no Kaifukujutsu where MG sells a trial for 11.99$. Even DLsite properly marked as costing nothing... well, what's the point of receiving x% out of 0$? MG should appear at the top for 11.99$ with the proper partial releases.

Feel free to ignore as I don't really care. I am just reporting this issue that might make sense to you.

< report >We already discussed about that but, at least, unofficial releases shouldn't be taken into account when calculating the release date of a VN.
Examples: Bimbo High was released in 2020-08-03 when it should be 2022-03-07. Kimi ga Shine -Tasuuketsu Death Game- was released in 2019-08-12 when it should be 2021-05-30.
