But that example vn is a definite fetishy coerced kind of feminization, not a chosen transition. You wouldn't use the word transition if it was forced by blackmail or sexual training.
Also there probably are legit EVN's out there about actual trans characters transitioning, that you don't want to mix with the same trait as a guy getting forced or brainwashed into feeling like a girl.
And the trait only applies Male to Female, not transitioning in general.

I mean, the trait can be repurposed into transitioning, regardless of gender, but I'd rather not. I'm not an expert on the topic, but I'd figure that transitioning is a bit more than just a fetish, while this trait is supposed to be a sexual one. Plus feminization exist without transitioning.Last modified on 2017-11-08 at 04:08

If that's what everyone thinks, I can't come up with any other way to salvage the trait. The trait description is male to female transitioning in a fetishistic context, and there's no obvious corresponding trait name (especially not "feminization"), so if nothing can be changed then there's nothing to be done about it, "it cannot be helped" as they say.

edit - just to point out one last thing, there is a Wikipedia entry for feminization and it doesn't involve "internal transformation and acceptance" (quoting both the tag's and proposed trait's description). It's purely concerned with behavior.Last modified on 2017-11-08 at 07:07

Though why is there so much trouble with this trait anyway when the corresponding tag was approved Feminization, and the Forced Cross-dressing tag also has forced feminization as an alias.Last modified on 2017-11-08 at 06:11

I'd like to request Major and Captain traits under Soldier.
There are other military ranks that could be added, but these are the most important.Last modified on 2017-11-13 at 21:35

If "Long Ears" isn't going to be registered (if it has been before) and that Pointed Ears will compensate it, then may we have it as an alias of that trait?Last modified on 2017-11-21 at 10:08

Do we have a trait for eponymous characters and a tag for games including an eponymous character? IE the title of the game contains the name of a character in the game? I think that would be interesting.

I don't know if more specific subcategories like "eponymous protagonist" or "eponymous heroine" would be worthwhile.

Also would like to know if we could make a trait for the item of "basket" for those who carry them. Handbag is close but baskets are not exactly bags so its own heading under Containers would seem right.

For example link

Also simple request, please alias "kohai" for Kouhai as it is spelled that way at link (probably people who thought you could just drop the accent over O in romaji) and is kinda confusing.Last modified on 2017-11-21 at 07:24

Olive - Even though Tan is an alias the trait doesn't show up if you just type tan into the box for some reason.
And beige shouldn't be an alias, because as a skin color it is usually a lighter peach shade.

^There is no need to legitimize mis-romanizations as alias's.

Regarding Rape on Defeat, should this apply to characters who can avoid it through decision making or player skill?

Why not Avoidable Rape for that then?
Rape on Defeat should remain for all avoidable and unavoidable rape where the character has been defeated either by the protagonist or is the protagonist which has been defeated for it is actually a kind of genre/implementation like Game Over Rape.

Not sure why the tag has been deleted... though admittedly, Game Over Rape is a specific Rape on Defeat and may not need a defeat specifically so it should not be an alias, for VNs it is rather "Bad End Netorare/Rape/Sex with others".

Based on the time of its denial, it was probably me who tossed it out. I think my reasoning there was that I always considered rape on defeat as a gameplay / decision element. Either you get defeated in a gameplay section, or make a wrong choice that leads to an instant bad ending which includes rape. Since Game Over already had the "Rape Ending" alias, this seemed to be redundant. And I didn't want stuff like your typical Black Lilth nukige tagged with it, where we have a female protagonist who fight for like the first 10 minutes, gets quickly beaten down and then the rest of the VN is a rapefest with a mindbreak ending.

So the character tag should go on even if players are skilled enough/ make the right choices to finish the game without obtaining the rape scene?

Looks like all of the Kagura series heroines get the tag. Maybe I'll add them if I can be bothered.
