< report >Aren't most of the tags in From Other Media useless since you can search by related anime now?

< report >I hope this is the right place, since I don't see any "Edit" button on the page itself, as opposed to visual novel entries.

You should fix the description for Tag: Unique Routes.


For example one routes allies and villains can change places in an another route, and you can find yourself fighting against a heroine this time, side by side with the villain you hated on the other route.

For example, one route's allies and villains can change places in another route, and you can find yourself fighting against a heroine this time, side by side with the villain you hated on the other route.


Routes in this game are totally different than each other.

< report >Seems like this is the right place. Can you please fix the description for Tag: Routes as well?


These tags are for the details of the stories routes, if it has any.

For details on the role of routes on visual novels you can check the related Wikipedia article.

< report >Hey there, VNDB! I'm new to this whole tagging business here. I'm a Danbooru Builder though, so hopefully there's some tag knowledge overlap!

Anywho, I'm here to suggest a tag:

I see that a "Macrophilia" tag exists, yet a "Microphilia" tag does not. However, for whatever reason, a tiny fraction of the last sentence of the "Macrophilia" tag description briefly states that it can also include "a tiny person with a normal-sized person".

When I see a "Macrophilia" tag anywhere else, I assume that tag is for macrophilia content. In other words, scenarios involving giantesses, Godzilla-esque monster girls, or colossal mecha musumes; and all the other text in the tag description implies that this is the case here as well:

Visual novels with this tag include scenes of a macrophilic nature. This is often sexual, but sometimes not. Macrophilia refers to a fascination with or a sexual fantasy involving giants. [...] A normal-sized person with an over-sized person.

I feel that there is very little overlap (if any) between the audiences looking for macrophilia content versus microphilia content. If you're looking specifically for visual novels with sexual content involving girls that can shrink themselves or otherwise get shrunk, or place a very heavy emphasis on lewd scenarios involving fairies, living dolls, insect girls and so on, there's not a super easy way to go about it on VNDB.

I am willing to populate the "Microphilia" tag myself by adding it to the applicable visual novels on here, as I'm currently doing the same thing for ExHentai's game CG galleries with their "minigirl" tag! :)

< report >The worst is that it also conflates macro/micro males meaning you don't get giantesses and fairies but basic inflation-monster-rape stuff. Like Eden's Ritter - In'etsu no Seima Kishi Lucifer Hen and Monsters Survive ~Makereba Monster ni Seishoku Sareru~ which don't have women with different sizes but big monsters I assume. You can even tag Goblin Slayer with this tag haha. It is bound to flood the tag with this content and it's impossible to discriminate. It is very generic in nature with "Size difference fetish" being the more honest tag name.

< report >I was going to post a big wall of text about why the current tag should be renamed and made not applicable so it could have Macrophilia and Microphilia as child tags, but missclicked and everything I wrote was erased from existence... I even explained how I encountered a RPG with a sex scene between a human-sized male and a fairy male, but meh.

Anyway, In the mean time you can use this. Not perfect but it's something i guess.

< report >I just saw Voice Replay tag deleted for these reasons. I think Unlockable Gallery and Music Recollection tags should be deleted for same reasons as well (we already got a No Gallery tag, we only need a No Music Recollection tag).Last modified on 2022-05-31 at 23:09

< report >they are a little bit different with Voice Replay. there are VNs that have gallery and music recollection unlocked from the very beginning, especially doujin VN (even the new ones). so Unlockable Gallery can help that the gallery is just hidden, not unavailable.

< report >by their desciptions, some of the tags under Vehicles are only applicable when the VN is taking place in their respective location (beside Car and Mecha). they should be changed so they have more general usage.

the generic "This VN has [tag name] as its story element" or "[tag name] plays an important role in the game's story" should be good enough.

< report >Slice of Life Realism
This tag is for slice of life stories presented in a very serious nature.
What does "very serious nature" even mean in the context of SoL? Shouldn't it be simply "in a very realistic way"?

< report >Alias suggestion: Add 'Sex with Children' as an alias for Sex Involving Children. 'with' is more common and that's also what the corresponding trait Sex with Children uses.

< report >I was thinking but can't you solve the problem of tags not applying to all releases by giving a boolean for users to check and then color the tags differently in the tag cloud to show that they are not common? Quick and dirty way compared to having to specify which releases the tag apply to but at least you will not be angry that a tag didn't appear. You will probably have the funny case where some tags were added and some removed...
Just throwing some idea that came to my sick mind.

< report >Autobukkake should be renamed Self Bukkake and Self Facial. The auto prefix is pretty misleading.
Edit: ok so autobukkake is on Urban Dictionary (one definition)... but so is self bukkake (three definitions) so I guess autobukkake is also a thing, even if it makes me think to "choice defaulting to bukkake".Last modified on 2022-06-17 at 12:02

< report >Multiple Defloration, also known as Multiple Defloration should be brought back. It's very specifically my fetish and the archived version of the page is surely outdated by now, making it harder to find VNs that directly cater to this fetish. The tag's existence is justified by how different it is from harems that only feature one on one deflorations.

Please consider my request, as it's made in earnest and feels justified to me.

< report >Subject of (Sexual) > Reverse Spitroast: the word "spitroast" (third paragraph) links to the wrong entry, it should be Subject of (Sexual) > Spit-roast.

Subject of (Sexual) > Spit-roast: the word "reverse spitroast" (third paragraph) is not linked, it should link to Subject of (Sexual) > Reverse Spitroast.


PS: the tag "Routes" mentioned in my post #2828 still needs a fix. ;)

< report >While technically true, I don't think Reiwa Era should be under Past Japan. I think Heisei Era fits better under Modern Day Japan to the average person and also fits the tag description.

< report >In Gokkun description the line "Gokkun can also refer to the sexual act of swallowing semen after performing fellatio or participating in a bukkake." should be added from wiki article. As well as aliases such as "Semen Swallow" or "Sperm Inside Mouth". Else with current description - it makes false impression that the tag is only about semen consumption from container which is not related to blowjob. I spend lot of time trying to find trivial tag for coming inside mouth and swallowing - and almost started to make a new tag - due to misleading description there.Last modified on 2022-06-29 at 02:04

< report >d10.4 the percentages are ridiculous and I will be the first to speak against that. If half of all H-scenes contain one theme, it's a giga 3. Should be more like
And none of the plot tags will be applicable for 3.0 from now on, because instead of an ambiguous strong plot presence, you need the VN to literally only talk about that single specific thing. The true heroine looks like x and the whole true route is about y? Too bad, it's just one route, amirite

I'll provide some examples on my most recently completed VN.
Panchira power 3 - exposed pantsu directly related to the plot, starting the whole game. The minigame is strictly about catching pantyshots. Would be 2 now, because it's just half of the non-hcg that have panchira in them and that's not enough. There will now never be a game tagged 3.
Vaginal Masturbation power 3 - 3 whole masturbation scenes in a game that has 7 H-scenes in total, the rest appearing only at the very end of the game. But too bad, you didn't masturbate enough girl. And nobody else ever will.
The opposite end High Amounts of Rape - the remaining 4 scenes being rape, but having every penetration scene be rape is still not good enough to tag it as 3.0Last modified on 2022-06-29 at 09:30
