< report >@slashslayer:
I picked a horrible time to check my notifications, so I'll get back to a proper reply. Let me just say this; Unless I'm completely misremembering and misreading what I wrote in my reply, I'm saying that Infinity should be a *RELEASE* on the Never7 page (a partial release?) - which from what I briefly read in your reply seems to be in line with what you wanted. Just because someone is disagreeing with you over a single point doesn't mean they're disagreeing with you on everything.

< report >why are you and poudink thinking that i'm complaining about agreement just because i further explained my points? in this case what i'm talking about is asking for "Infinity Cure" to be consistent with the decision of "Infinity" being a Never7 release, in reality

ANYWAY, i'm glad that we're clear about this. now it's just a matter of waiting to see if some admin will be patient enough to read the request

< report >you can create a new producer entry with their name if they release it not under the said group's name. ah, as for the relation, you can use 'Spawned' if they are independent from the said producer, and imprint or subsidary if they are a dependent.Last modified on 2021-09-02 at 03:06

< report >Since 9 -Nine- got complete Japanese edition (both physical and digital) - r74265, r76735, r79385 - wouldn't it be good time to merge all episodes into single VN entry titled "9 -Nine-"?

< report >Big disagree. I think vndb should move away from merged VNs in general towards multiple entries.

< report >Disagree on the proposal to merge 9nine as well. The different entries in the series have accumulated a ton of votes/reviews when they were separate, I feel throwing all of that away (or otherwise trying to merge them all to one entry) would only hurt the series.Last modified on 2021-09-02 at 11:50

< report >So do you really think that for every VN that has been initially released in episodic form, each episode should have separate entry? Like for example splitting series such as Higurashi or Umineko into umpteen more different VN entries? I think that would create huge mess.

But then I have to agree, that merging now could also lead to problems, as @759 has pointed out.

Perhaps it would be nice to have some higher "umbrella" kind of entry for such cases (that could be also voted on)? Especially since imo relation between "episodes" in such episodic games is significantly different from prequel/sequel relationship. And I'd prefer to have single db entry I could refer to when talking about 9 -Nine- or WA2 or other similar titles - and I'd like to be able to give one vote for the whole game, instead of treating each episode as separate entity.Last modified on 2021-09-02 at 14:11

< report >If an instance of a character isn't sexually involved, but another instance is, the "Not Sexually Involved" trait still applies to the first one, right? Even if it's just a different "form" within the same novel?

There is a larger, and frankly, the more important reason why I wouldn't want to merge these entries - aesthetics.

9 -Nine- has collectively accumulated 50 different releases over five games. Rolling them into a single entry would create an ungodly mess. So I think it's perfectly reasonable to keep the entries separated for readability and serchability, even if under different circumstances they would be better served when viewed as a single story.

If the character deserves an instance and that particular instance has no sexual relations, "Not Sexually Involved" should of course apply, even if the different instance does have sex.

Yep, hard to argue with that.

< report >I'll be the first to say I don't like changing pantsu to pants. Pants is british-english only, and not used by English speakers in general to refer to panties.
In general, spell in the foreign language if it makes sense to do so
this applies to pantsu imo

Recognized sites: Animate Games, App Store, Denpasoft, Digiket, DLsite, DLsite (eng), DMM, ErogameScape, ErogeTrailers, Fakku, Freem!, Game Jolt, Getchu, DL.Getchu, GOG, Google Play, Gyutto, Itch.io, JAST USA, J-List, Melonbooks.com, Melonbooks.co.jp, MangaGamer, NovelGame, Nutaku, Steam, Toranoana.
Probably automatically fetched.

< report >Yup, Play-asia links are automatically fetched by doing GTIN lookups on their API, so with a JAN/EAN/UPC code it should show up soon enough (~15 days at most).

In my opinion: No.
#773 by Ezezin
2021-10-06 at 18:53
< report >I though the same thing, but we don't have traits like Inumimi Heroine, Kitsune Heroine, Nekomimi Heroine... to differentiate between them.
If the Mammal traits are not being used with Kemonomimi, what do you think about having traits for the most common Kemonomimi (species?) used in VN like what we have as tags?

< report >If I'm not wrong, we had some more specific tags, but I have deleted them. I don't think we need to go so deep into details in the tags. A general Kemonomimi tag is enough, and traits can take care of the details.

< report >This is the Kemonomimi tag and this is the Kemonomimi trait.

If I understood you correctly, you say to create the Kemonomimi Heroine and Kemonomimi Hero child tags as traits, remove those tags and then leave only Kemonomimi Heroine, Kemonomimi Hero, Kemonomimi Protagonist and Kemonomimi Support Character as tags?Last modified on 2021-10-06 at 19:46
