< report >But you can see it at a glance. It's the column between tag power and note. Literally called "others spoiler" which goes from 0.00 to 2.00. You don't have to go to the entry page to check.

< report >I think it would be great if we could add a "Recommendations" / "More like this" section to VN pages.
This would contain user-created reviews that link 2 different VNs together, pointing out what's similar (and enjoyable) about them. MyAnimeList uses a system like that, and I personally appreciate it a lot.

I know you could say "well that's what tags are for", but I think there's a big difference between two works sharing a few tags in common VS genuinely being comparable in terms of enjoyment.
(It's also different from Relations, since Recommendations are intended for VNs from different franchises.)

#927 link
This is a good start, but not really what I meant.
Rather than an automated, tag-based system, I was suggesting an alternate form of user reviews.

Likewise, I now see that /r/vnsuggest is a thing, but it's nowhere near as organized or accessible as recommendations directly on a VN's page would be. I really enjoy browsing the reviews on here, so I think expanding them would be a great idea.

< report >This is related to t15877 (multi-language releases and updates):

It is currently left to the whims of the editor whether and how to indicate why a new release was created, so you get mistaken edits like r62915.5 where the Chinese addition update was confused for the original Japanese/English release.

It would therefore be useful with some means or standard with which to mark a release as having been superseded by another release. I guess this could either be through explicit support in the data model or through a FAQ providing a standard for linking superseded/superseding releases, similar to d5#5. Adding support to the data model would obviously be more work, but it would make it possible to indicate such releases on a VN page (for example by using a lighter text color), which would potentially make it easier to navigate the release lists of VNs with many content/language updates.

< report >I think having proper release relations (Requires this release, supersedes some other release) etc would be pretty useful to have in the model. Just needs to be worked out a bit further.

< report >A small suggestion based on t15877.29, since I also hadn't noticed that you could filter the Recent/Upcoming Releases on the front page:

How about an info-icon with a tool-tip placed next to each header, or something like it, that points out that you just need to set a default filter: link

< report >Yorhel, you probably haven't noticed t8242.530, so I'll make a request here to add Latin language to the db.

< report >Johren is selling quite a number of VNs at this point (link), so it would be useful if it was supported in External Links.

< report >Maybe the number of icons you can have on the "just released" and "upcoming releases" on the front page should be limited somwhat as there's currently a release with every language under the sun which doesn't show any other part of its name other than "the". I don't know what would happen if it had a few more languages but I presume it wouldn't be good.

< report >Producers could also have a field for twitter link, not only staff.

< report >The Twitter is automatically grabbed for producers from the attached Wikidata. You only need to add the Twitter link to Wikidata and add the Wikidata link to the producer.

< report >Cool. But you also have to first create the wikidata for thousand random doujin circles.

< report >I see you can't vote on unreleased VNs anymore. If you return the feature, it will help catch "bad" voters, making VNDB an ever so slightly happier place.

< report >Not sure if it’s been suggested before, but would the length of a title be better voted? Median length in actual hours or percentage of each option from a fixed list.

< report >#944 it's in the wishlist link. it's been getting more frequent lately, perhaps worse than the NSFW edit wars. let's hope the feature be implemented soon...

< report >So, someone correct me if I'm wrong, but it's currently impossible to search for MTLs. They simply don't show up in searches at all. So you have to just kinda stumble into them by accident to know they exist. Is this right or am I doing it wrong? I don't get it
