< 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?

< report >Can it be mentioned explicitly that times are in UTC? I've seen that letting users pick their timezone has been suggested before, but this request is more about alerting times are not being converted to local time.

For example, in this thread times look like "2022-11-25 at 22:19", which I'm guessing most people assume to be in their local time.

I think not having doujin status as a separate field is fine, but can you add an icon on releases based on whether the publisher is a Company or Amateur group/Individual?
This should theoretically correspond - looking at the sql query there are a lot of cases where it doesn't but I think most of them are mistakes, people leaving the fields as default?
Would be pretty useful for me.

< report >Any way to fix characters that are in multiple games not being affected by inverted tags? Filtering out 'heroine with sexual experience' for example and having characters that are in a bunch of games and one of them doesn't have that tag so they don't get filtered is annoying.

< report >Maybe you are looking for Role > Not a Virgin, which is the equivalent of Heroine with Sexual Experience for characters. Here is an example: link

Or if you are searching for heroines that don't appear in any VNs with that tag regardless of sexual involvement or experience, you have to choose "not linked to a visual novel that matches these filters" instead of inverting the tag filter. Example: linkLast modified on 2022-12-10 at 23:03

there are dates, links to websites,... a bunch of all sorts of information, but I can't sort trash content from high-quality by rating, and that's why I ask you to add the engines tag to the search. or add a rating tag in releases

< report >I've already forgotten what it used to look like but I'm assuming the change was good.

I'd like the current page to be visually more obvious. Like the whole area around the current page number could be highlighted a little.

< report >Can we have an error on the VN page when the development status contradicts the data from the releases? I am fixing that manually as it is pretty recurrent and that would be better if the discrepancy would be visible in a way that would push people from not committing the error in the first place (by seeing the error when there is still no releases, which might solve this other error which consist in not adding a single release), or push other people to fix the error.

You can use Deosseom as an example.Last modified on 2022-12-17 at 04:33

< report >I don't think there's a way to narrow searches by relations at the moment. If I want to filter out fandiscs, or avoid seeing sequel VNs with heavily biased ratings (cough cough Muv-Luv), there's no way to go about it. It'd be something nice to have.

< report >Can you also highlight "don't forget to list the source" in the VN's form? And include "using [From [url=LINK]SOURCE[/url]] proper formatting". It's primarily to spare editors to waste time writing this over and over again by allowing them to copy and paste this snippet directly.
