< report >Speaking of overruling tags, It would be great if a mod overruled the Hard Science Fiction for the Zero Escape games. While these do have a few plausible sci-fi elements/thought experiements, the main sci-fi plot device is a widely debunked "illustration of the widespread public misconception of what science is about".

< report >should one-sided rivalry be applied Protagonist's Rival as a Heroine/Protagonist's Rival as a Hero? I feel like it should as it a quite common trope in media link. requesting a little adjustment of the desc if it's applicable.

< report >Is there a tag for when an auto function is on a timer regardless of spoken lines? I'm playing Isekai Musume Hatsujouchuu ~Ore no Are o Hamu Hamu Shimakuri!?~ and it does this. A girl will be halfway in the middle of a word and it'll just auto to the next line dropping the rest of what she's saying. I've seen other games do this and wondered if there was a tag for it.

No "Keep Voice on Click" Option is similar but that's not what i was looking for to describe it.

< report >The sheer volume of visual novels that have Has Window Transparency Setting
make the tag utterly worthless. We won't know if the game has no transparent function or if nobody bothered to tag it. Can we have the opposite instead? NO window transparency? That would be incredibly useful.

< report >On the topic of overruling, and I'm not sure if this is the right place for it, I think u198058's tag votes need to be looked into. Also probably many of u159780's downvotes of the Male on Male Sex tag.

< report >Ok, so, Protagonists by Race and Ethnicity, Heroine by Race and Ethnicity, Hero by Race and Ethnicity should be renamed to "[Character role] by Nationality and Ethnicity".

The concept of "Race" strictly refers to the physical features of a person like facial structure and the color of their skin. "French", "Japanese", and "Mexican" aren't races, they're nationalities. Nationality is one aspect of Ethnicity so there's no problem with lumping them together. The only subtags that actually describe someones race is "Half-Japanese [Character Role]".Last modified on 2021-07-30 at 00:50

< report >Just to be sure, you are not adding/accepting any more game jams tags no matter how many visual novels entries it has, right?

Edit: Are you sure that you want to have Changeable Font Size? Nearly all Ren'py games have that feature, unless the developers remove this option. Press "a" button in any ren'py game to see it for yourself. Here is a screenshot I took: link.Last modified on 2021-08-05 at 00:42

< report >#2609, no it should be a subtag. Straight shotacon is shota with any aged woman whereas Oneeshota is only with a subset of ages.

< report >Blinking Sprites should be restored.
Highly Animated Sprites suggests a massively higher budget than 1-3 extra frames for the eyes, so it by no means covers most use cases.
Blinking Sprites and Lip Sync often go together, while the rest of the sprite is completely static.

< report >Hey, quick question - what's the difference between height tags and height tags (obsolete)? I finally got around to delurking, and noticed that say, Short (obsolete) is what I remember the short tag being, with a lot more entries. The new(?) Short tag has far fewer entries. Are they going to merged, or is there housecleaning that needs to be done?

< report >#2617, the obsolete tags are to be corrected by hand. Not all of them probably belong to the new Short trait though. I've been correcting a few obsoletes but I'm not brave enough to go through all of them (because I don't know all those characters enough to judge them correctly).Last modified on 2021-09-01 at 04:33

< report >[Continuing the discussion from t10302.311]

Maybe the problem lies in that Otome Game Jam is a child tag of Otome Game? Or maybe the Otome Game description is not very specific so it includes visual novels that weren't supposed to be included in that category?

I like game jams, but I'm not a serious fan of otome games (well... I barely read 3 visual novels tagged as such), so maybe I'm wrong in how are classified those kind of VN.

< report >Hi, what do we call a tag that indicates a settings to change character standing posture (立ち絵設定) from clothed (普通) to complete naked (全腹)? link sounds about right, but idk if naked can be considered a costume.

Maybe the tag can include the sentence at the end that says something among the lines of "There also must not be any yuri or (female) bisexual content in the game. A game will also not qualify if the gender of the protagonist is selectable."

Strongly disagreed. Many otome games (most of them OELVNs, but not necessarily) throw in a token lesbian route in order to attract larger audiences. That doesn't suddenly cause the game not to be an otome game. If the protag is a female, and the main goal of the the game is to pursue male attention, it's an otome game, even if there might be outlier routes. It might not be a "pure" otome game, but that's why we have tag strengths to show how much the content complies with the tag.

Since it's about the mechanic "player decides what the character wears", I'd also say that sounds correct, even if the name doesn't perfectly match
Agreed.
