< report >if you set your default filter in link it will affect random visual novel shown and the screenshots shown on the main page as well.

< report >Shoot, I apologize for missing that. I must be blind. It even says it on there. I have plenty of saved filters, but never made one my default filter. Thanks for that.

< report >Option to hide spoilers on tag editing pages? Or is it just recommended to only add tags after finishing reading something so you have the full picture?

< report >I think most of us take it as a hazard that one must either accept or avoid editing tags on a given VN. Not to say such a feature wouldn't be nice to have, though.

< report >Aren't you supposed to finish a VN before editing its tags, so you fully know what you're talking about?

< report >It's preferable, since you're more likely to make mistakes otherwise, but especially for games that don't have any tagging at all yet, throwing in a few basic categories so the game can be found in a search is (IMO) helpful.

I tag a lot of games I've never played with very simple info that can be drawn from the game marketing - protagonist's gender, genre, etc. I'm obviously not going into detail, and I try to avoid taking guesses on things I can't be sure of (like, I'm not going to touch 'blood related' vs 'non-blood-related' in most games without playing them). But you can often tell from the game's page if it's a Male Protagonist, Boy x Boy, Murder Mystery set in Modern Japan, and getting that much tagging in place will help people who are looking for that kind of game to find it so that they can play it and add more detail.

If you're in the middle of reading something you should probably finish first. Then you won't have the spoiler problem and your tags will be more accurate.Last modified on 2022-06-15 at 16:30

< report >instead of sequel, I think default vn relation should be same series.

< report >I think it would be cool to be able to favorite VNs and list the most favorite ones in the search list, and show in the user's profile which game is his favorite. And to load images into the Discussion board.

< report >You mean like voting on your favorite VN higher and then ordering them by vote? As long as your list is public, everybody can find your favs. If your list is private, nothing prevents you from creating a public "favorite" label.

See, your favs are:
10 Rewrite
10 Tsujidou-san no Jun'ai Road
10 Umineko no Naku Koro ni
9.9 Grisaia no Kajitsu -LE FRUIT DE LA GRISAIA-
9.8 Kyonyuu Fantasy Gaiden
9.8 Kyonyuu Fantasy Gaiden 2
9.7 Kyonyuu Fantasy 2
9.6 Kyonyuu Fantasy
9.5 Grisaia no Rakuen -LE EDEN DE LA GRISAIA-
9.4 CLANNADLast modified on 2022-06-25 at 23:07

< report >yeah, but i think that could appear in the visual novel list when searching, we can order them by rating, popularity, tag importance, alphabet and release date, but I think ordering by favorite is a cool addition. game length too, maybe.

and be able to add images in the comments of the forum.Last modified on 2022-06-26 at 01:09

< report >ok but that's not what I am saying, I'm talking about most favorite, which is a non existent function, and by game length also, what do you think about that?

< report >Ordering by votes doesn't always display one's favourite vns accurately. For example, I have rated Steins;Gate 9, and it isn't one of my favourite vns, just a really good one. After SubaHibi, MLA and Umineko, my favourite vns are ones I rated 8, like Shadows of Pygmalion, Seven Days with the Ghost or Flowers Summer; because even if I don't consider them as good as some better vns, I still like them more.

< report >@1291 Yeah but I thought abour one system where you can only select one VN as your favorite, and then one can order VNs by the number of users who marked them as their favorite. And order games by game length also.

Just thought of another thing, what about showing the game cover in the search list link , just to avoid clicking each one of them to see the cover.

< report >@1293 Interesting idea, even though limiting it to only one vn feels a bit restrictive. On the other hand, with no cap, it would become chaotic and useless pretty quickly. Maybe make the limit 3, 5 or 10? Maybe make the limit depend on the user's total number of vns read, like one favourite slot per 25 vns read or somthing?

< report >If they are your favorite VNs I think you just should rate them higher, instead of adding one more separate voting system. Votes are subjective, there is nothing wrong with rating you favorite VNs higher than non-favorite, even if you think that non-favorite is somehow better.Last modified on 2022-06-26 at 17:19

I don't think adding yet another metric is going to help anyone sort or discover VNs. As #1295 said, you're free to rate VNs as you wish, and voting a 10 on your fav VN, even if it has some flaws, is perfectly fine.

what about showing the game cover
display options.

< report >@1294, i dont know, but I feel like if it becomes limited to two or more, it becomes more and more similar to the voting system.

< report >I have a few suggestions:

1. Implement a discipline/warning system. It'd even more helpful if there's a list of "punishments" one can receive depending on how many warnings they have. (Ex. 1 week ban for doing [thing against rule, such as bad edits], permanent ban for nonstop trolling, etc). As of now, it's a huge guessing game. An appeal ban form would be nice, too, in case of error.

2. Let us select which title we want to show in our list. For example, someone may be more familiar with the EN title of a specific game rather than the JP title setting they set - however, they may recognize most titles by the JP name. There should be a dropdown menu or something that allows you to choose which title you want to use. No, I don't mean the whole list - this would be for specific games. I'm perfectly aware that we can choose the default language name we see under settings. Ideally, the menu would be optional and not come up whenever you add something to your list; the default would show up as the title until you manually edit it on your own list.

3. Add a nonbinary and/or genderless option on the gender menu when adding characters.

4. Let us go to our wishlist (by just clicking on it) and search for tags and everything there. I'm aware you can select "On list/wishlist" in search, but this would be an easy shortcut that could make using wishlists much more simple.

These are all sorta nitpicky, but I figure it could help in the long run, c:

< report >I like your first suggestion. I propose this list of "punishments":
1 dekopin
2 spanking
3 bukkake by ten vndb users
4 nipple dick-shaped piercings
5 nose irrumatio by a pig
6 you can only eat and drink a horse's pee and sperm for a month
7 all your holes are made into manko and should be referred to as [hole]-manko.
8 prolapsed is now the default state of all your various manko
9 you are miniaturized and force to live for a week in Beliar's foreskin where he nurtures liters of smegma
10 giving birth through your urethra

I expected someone to make a joke like that, but I never expected to see "giving birth through your urethra" on that list lmfao
