I know that alias is not supposed to contain spoilers as per the rule, but what about the case when a certain alias gives away a character's hidden role?
For example: the character having a superpower is a spoiler, but one of her alias is "God's power" or something like that.

I think that's the best answer I could hope for and I like it.

If a character dies in another heroine's route, still use Death and Death of Heroine correct? Or only use it if she dies in her own route?Last modified on 2020-06-22 at 19:40

Erm, yes, that's right, though if she dies in another heroine's route, Other Route Death seems to be more appropriate than simply Death.

@literallolicon: I think you answered yourself. If it gives something away, which you shouldn't know at the beginning of the story, then it shouldn't be visible in the profile. If a title like "God's power" gives away the superpower of the character, it shouldn't be an alias and should either be removed or relegated to a spoiler-framed mention in the description.

@beliar I see. Thanks for the reply.

I added pillow talk as a tag. These scenes appear somewhat frequently in moege, they often have a CG dedicated to them, and it is a good indicator of the level of ichaicha present.
EDIT: And tagged 50 odd eroge with it to prove its worth.Last modified on 2020-06-24 at 21:52

Umm, I found someone created so many weird tags begun with link...
I guess they are just malicious spam. :(

EDIT: They could almost be determined as spam. There has already been over 1000 such tags up to now and I personally don't think they have any connection with depression.Last modified on 2020-06-24 at 02:50

Eh, most likely a bot. It's banned now. Will clean up the mess tomorrow...

Wow, they are still gushing out! Are we being invaded?

EDIT: maybe everyone should be banned from creating tags temporarily (or get his IP banned if possible)? Otherwise he will continue creating account...Last modified on 2020-06-24 at 01:24

Please guys, no discrimination because the guy is Chinese. Not all of them are spammers.
The only thing that matters: are they good tags or not?

Edit: I didn't know depression could be nuanced this much.Last modified on 2020-06-24 at 02:12

Ugh, invaded by Chinese spam bots. Most aggresive spam campaign on VNDB to date. :(

On the upside, mass-deleting tags is pretty easy.

There should be stricter requirements regarding account creation rather than just gmail. My suggestion is a linked phone number to the account.Last modified on 2020-06-24 at 07:11

My suggestion is a linked phone number to the account.

There are some avenues we can explore to make a spammer's life harder, but these often come with trade-offs in user privacy and effort required to create a new account. This spam campaign came from just 3 accounts so it's unlikely that would've helped much anyway. A bit more account-based action throttling would've been more helpful.

So the campaign continued while I was asleep? Good thing Yorhel could mass-clean the mess, otherwise it would have been a pain to do manually.

@2300 Aren't hero(in)es any character that has a route? I guess that'd be the most "purist" definition. I wonder if it'd be a good idea to just mark characters as "capturable" or "has a route". On the one hand, I've searched for characters with certain traits plus the "main character" role in romance/porn VNs that turned out not to be capturable, so such a feature would be useful. On the other hand, the term "capturable" itself is also nuanced.
I had a question related to that: Do friendship endings with "side characters" count for the "Hero(ine)" tags? Like in Tokimeki Memorial Girl's Side where there are 4 rival characters who can be befriended and even get their own section in the game's CG gallery. It's obvious that they're not as important as the romanceable characters, but they still get events and endings, although not to the same extent.

Also, Queen Protagonist should be under Royal Protagonist.

@2317: fixed both tag and traits

Would there be any drawback of making every non-searchable tag/trait searchable? Take Students by Grade as an example. Making it searchable would allow us to easily find characters who don't have (or have) traits about their grade, so my question is, would there be any reason to not make it searchable? Same train of thought can be applied to nearly every non-searchable tag/trait.Last modified on 2020-07-02 at 13:16

Probably the idea is that there is low interest in searching for those tag/traits. But sticking to your question, no there is no drawback in making them searchable.Last modified on 2020-07-02 at 18:03
