Their descriptions would beg to differ. :P
Well, that's the description's problem :-D

< report >If I am not mistaken, Engages in (Sexual) > Nursing Handjob should not be a child trait of Engages in (Sexual) > Adult Breast Feeding, it should be a child trait of Subject of (Sexual) > Adult Breast Feeding.

In the same vein, Subject of (Sexual) > Nursing Handjob should not be a child trait of Subject of (Sexual) > Adult Breast Feeding, it should be a child trait of Engages in (Sexual) > Adult Breast Feeding.

< report >The whole thing is screwed up, because in this case the female should be subject of nipple sucking, but engages in breast feeding and nursing handjob. I don't know if it's possible to do that with the trait tree.

< report >Sadly the db just cannot deal with the traits where the parent and the child have contradictory meanings. The only solution is to either Move Adult Breast Feeding away from Nipple Sucking, or just move the Nursing Handjob away.

Moreover the Adult Breast Feeding is completely borked as a trait, as no one has ever defined who is "subject of" and who is "engages in" regarding it, hence the traits are completely mixed. They possibly need to be purged, and restarted anew with a proper description.Last modified on 2022-11-12 at 22:10

< report >Hi All! Question about the betrothed and engagement ring traits.

Should they apply when a route ends with an engagement(marked as heavy spoiler), or only when they start out as engaged? A quick search revealed a similar discussion about the Girfriend trait a few years back but it is not clear to me what the conclusion was with that. I feel like the same rule should apply here as well.

< report >Shouldn't Hair > Afro be a child trait of Hair > Afro-textured? Otherwise I think that all characters with Hair > Afro will need both traits.

< report >Thank you sir. That helps.

Uhhhh, why is the first image censored as Not Safe for Work? Is there something inherently sexual about a mouth gag?Last modified on 2022-11-25 at 18:10

< report >The trait Kinesis is unable to be applied to characters. Also, it's pretty redundant and can cause confusion that the kinesis tag describes that characters can control things with their mind, such as pyrokinesis. However, there is already a Pyrokinesis trait, also for controlling fire with minds. Should pyrokinesis, hydrokinesis, and cryokinesis be made daughter traits under kinesis?Last modified on 2022-11-29 at 13:13

< report >The trait Bell is currently under the Accessories and Others parent trait. Which makes sense, nothing wrong with this. However, shouldn't it also be a child trait of, say, Miscellaneous Items, in the case of a character using bells in religion, dance or ritual settings? A bell of this nature is fairly different from a bell used as a hair accessory or a pet collar, after all.

< report >No. If you read description it says "This character has one or more bells on his/her clothing."

Maybe, and just maybe, the name can be changed to "clothing with bells" or "bells as accessory" if it gets confusing.

< report >Inconsistent Art Trait

So, here is Rin in her sprite (gray hair)
Not Safe for Work

and here is the same character in her adult CG
again, Not Safe for Work

This is not because of breast expansion, or age change, or any sort of story reason at all. This is simply inconsistent art. I had proposed some sort of 'variable' trait for inconsistent art but it was rejected as not being well written. We've all seen characters like this, time and time again for whatever numerous reasons artists do this. Hair length changes, breast sizes change, even eye and hair colors too. It makes tagging some characters really difficult and it makes finding characters sometimes difficult too. Is there a way we can create a trait for this that would work? I feel such a trait needs to exist but I need to properly describe it so it works.

< report >That's an entirely different issue easily solvable by adding an "AI generated images" tag. This is an artist making a deliberate choice to alter the way a character looks without a story explanation.

< report >I dislike double posting but this should have some attention.

Engages in (Sexual) > Sex with Others
Can this be changed so it doesn't reference the protagonist? There are games where the protagonist cheats on the hero(ine) and games with no protagonists at all.

< report >Some VN readers have double standards. There are those who don't mind the fact that the self-insert protagonist forms a harem and sleeps around, but would instantly be discouraged from any VN where the hero(ine)s do the same. Also, since the protagonist is typically just a self-insert of the reader, every sex they have is with "others" unless they're masturbating.

That said... according to the description of Engages in > Infidelity, both traits could be applied to a heroine who cheats on her boyfriend. Sex with others could be applied to any heroine, or non-winnable side character, who has sex with anyone other than the protagonist, at any point in the story, whether they're in a relationship or not, and whether the protagonist acquiesces to said sexual relationship or not. There are a number of games where the protagonist runs a brothel, for example, and whores his wives/girlfriends out to customers. This wouldn't technically be infidelity or NTR, but it would be sex with others.

With that said, if sex with others could be applied to the protagonist, then it would have to be applied to any VN with more than a single hero(ine.) At which point it becomes redundant.

The main purpose of the sex with others trait is likely to warn potential readers who wouldn't want to see their waifu getting banged by someone else. In contrast, the Sex with protagonist only trait is to assure them the opposite. Every hero(ine) who has sex should have one of these traits or the other, as they're the very first thing many readers look for.Last modified on 2023-01-10 at 08:05

< report >No one cares what you think of "purityfags." They're the target market of the Moege genre of galge VNs, and there are millions of "purityfags" who look to purchase VNs of said genre. So having traits for the purpose of informing them whether a VN suits their taste or not makes perfect sense. That's why this site has tags and traits, after all.

Ruin the idol industry
Ruin voice actresses (I will NEVER forgive what they did to Aya Hirano)
Ruin anime
Ruin VNs

And I have to tolerate them. I won't say any more but they make me so mad.
