< report >Well personally adult breast feeding seems obvious. The one who breastfeeds is the one who engages in it. The one who's breasfed is the subject. Meanwhile armpit sex I understand might be confusing to some, because there are some scenes where a man "uses" a girl's armpit to pleasure himself. Same for legjob. It's something like cowgirl where a person who doesn't know how it works here might tag a girl with engages in cowgirl, because she's the one moving.

< report >To make it clear again here in VNDB the "moving" doesn't take a factor upon deciding if someone is subject of or engages in.
If we used the moving as a discrimination factor upon deciding "engages in" and "subject of" then even a normal blowjob vs irrumatio could lead to a clusterfuck mess of "engages in" vs "subject of".
That will just bring confusion and nobody would find what he is looking for.

Yes this rule should be made clear somewhere, probably we could write it down in FAQ and link it in the aforementioned traits or just make it clear in the description.Last modified on 2021-05-02 at 18:51

Maybe we can clarify here too, the one giving milk "Engages in" while the one sucking is "Subject of". It's the same for Nipple Sucking, but at least in Nipple Sucking's description is made well explicit how to use it.
Not sure if I'm stupid, but Nipple Sucking traits are inverted in relation to Adult Breast Feeding traits, which is what caused a confusion for me.

The description says that "Engages in Nipple Sucking" means they suck the nipples. but its child trait "Engages in Adult Breast Feeding" somehow means they are the ones whose nipples are getting sucked.

Shouldn't the traits be aligned?

< report >Uhhh, I just realized
You have two opposite spellings of the word "Gray". One in the title and one in the description. This could be confusing. In America "Grey" is an archaic spelling of the word. In Britain "Grey" is more common.

You should perhaps make the spelling the same in both the title and description with the other in 'Alias'.
That's the way it is in

Just being pedantic.

< report >Shouldn't Ojousama and Onzoushi be child traits of Wealthy? Since the upper class or families with political power are undoubtedly wealthy i think it's redundant to use that last trait when one of the first two are in use.

< report >The thing is, the trait was logically put under its parent trait Sex with Others, which is an "engages in" trait. However, it is also a child of a "subject of" Rape trait. Not sure how in such a case the db decides if it should treat the trait as an "engages in" or "subject of"....

Its own child trait Only Avoidable Rape by Others is treated as a "subject of". Maybe Yorhel could provide an explanation for the discrepancy and how it could be fixed...

Edit: I tried experimenting a bit, and after removing Sex with Others as a parent, the trait switched to "subject of", but after re-adding Sex with Others it switched back to 'engages in'. Some sort of quirk with the system. I will let Yorhel take care of this.Last modified on 2021-05-20 at 21:37

< report >The thing is, my assumption when designing the trait system was that each group would be totally independent of each other. i.e. no traits that have parents in more than one top-level trait. That assumpion has been violently violated, so it's about time to support that use case already.

Fortunately, the solution already came to me when we were discussion the VN tag tree display earlier - I'll fix a flag to indicate which parent should be considered "primary".

Done, for both tags and traits. It's possible that some traits with multiple parents have switched to a different group during the migration, these can now just be edited to mark the proper parent as primary.

The "primary" path to a tag/trait is always displayed at the top on the tag/trait pages. Additionally, non-primary parents are now not displayed anymore on the VN -> tags tab.

< report >Rape by Others and Autassassinophilist should be marked with "Indicates sexual content."

School Photography Club President and Acrobatic Gymnastics don't really indicate sexual content. So they should be unmarked.

Traits in link should probably be moved to their root's "(Sexual)" counterpart.

Not Sexually Involved probably shouldn't be under Engages in (Sexual). Because it makes searching for characters who engage in any arbitrary sexual act cumbersome. Maybe Role would be a better fit for it.
