< report >I think the point is you're only supposed to do tagging after finishing a VN so you have the whole picture.

< report >That doesn't make much sense though. I shouldn't need to read 5 VNs before I can mark Uluru Kajuta with Personality > Third Person. In the same vein, I shouldn't need to finish the whole VN before tagging it with Loli Heroine either.

< report >Talking about Personality > Third Person, the second paragraph should probably be
In Japan, this talking pattern may be used by small children and young women, and is considered to be cute and childish. In the West, illeism was used by men of power such as emperors or kings, and is now considered more as a sign of narcissism and megalomania.
As being "cute and childish" is a Japanese language thing when it's the absolute cringe in the West. Nobody thinks Alain Delon is cute. More like he is a national embarrassment...

Actually, it's the second person plural (royal 'we') that is mostly associated with kings and emperors. In the West the third person pronouns are mostly associated with idiocy and simplicity, rather than megalomania.

< report >Or with just being a massive weirdo. Especially if you refer to yourself as "The <Name>" Happens sometimes among nerds who are deliberately trying to be weird for style, or people who've spent too long in online chat environments where third-person was necessary.

I'm trying to think if I've ever seen that kind of thing with emperors and kings. I think maybe sometimes I've seen it when they call themselves by the name of their country in third-person? Like, stating their actions or positions as if they represent the greater whole? "England must act", but not generally "King Charles must act"

< report >Yes, I probably mixed up illeism with whatever is called using "we".
As for "idiocy and simplicity", I doubt people uses third person to sound like idiots. They are narcissistic and pretty much deluded, and don't see how utterly ridiculous they are. I mean, being a megalomaniac is being an idiot. If it's butterflygrrl's use, it's more on an as-and-when basis than something that would warrant the talking patterns trait.

< report >Could you make it so that when inputting a JAN with dashes (e.g. 49-95669-933874), the dashes are stripped automatically instead of forcing us to do it?
