< report >grid mode should have the image flag warning just like its card counterpart. it's tiring to go back and forth to profile setting or to the vn page just to see the cover.

It would be good if every (new) icon had its own color, like the "finished" one
Colors are a bit annoying with different skins. But feel free to suggest some colors for each icon - the current setup is totally broken on light skins anyway.

the grid is in DIRE need of an opaque background for them
Yeah, I toyed with a black background for them, but that ended up looking like garbage. If you have a nice CSS alternative I'd be happy to apply.

grid mode should have the image flag warning just like its card counterpart
Those dynamic flag warnings are the bane of grids and cards. I'm of the opinion that if you don't want to enable porn images then those views just aren't going to be useful for you. Though, as for a slight improvement, I'm planning a BlurHash approach instead.Last modified on 2021-07-13 at 08:24

< report >#977 while I prefer turning off explicit images, seeing the VN cover helps me remember the vn itself since I often can't tell / forget if I'm just looking at the title itself. BlurHash is also fine if we could remove the censoring by hovering at the cover, VNDB extender-ish.

< report >#971 it'd be possible for an user to score a certain amount of VNs the maximum score and then just order them in any preferable order in such list. but i think your point is fair enough, i'd already be satisfied with a favorite characters list, to be honest

< report >the easy way to give any vn the "maximum score" and order them is just do 10, 9.9, 9.8 etc down the list because on the bar chart on your userpage, scores 9.5 and above will just count as 10.

< report >Could it be possible to grab the property SoundCloud ID from wikidata for staff? I think it is important since a lot of western indie developers use free music from there. That website also links to several other relevant sites if they are available.

< report >Would it be possible to order VN relation links by their release dates? Take Bishoujo Mangekyou -Wasurenagusa to Eien no Shoujo- and Bishoujo Mangekyou -Kami ga Tsukuritamouta Shoujo-tachi- for example. On Bishoujo Mangekyou -Wasurenagusa to Eien no Shoujo-'s page the top link under the relations section will lead to the next VN of the series, while the bottom one will lead to the previous one. On Bishoujo Mangekyou -Kami ga Tsukuritamouta Shoujo-tachi-'s page however, the order is reversed and it seems like we cannot change the order manually either (link).Last modified on 2021-07-15 at 17:27

< report >just realized that you can't filter character with their birthday or character whose birthday is known (aside using query ofc), which is really weird considering the data exists...

.liststatus_icon.l1 { filter: invert(60%) sepia(28%) saturate(6308%) hue-rotate(157deg) brightness(98%) contrast(102%); }
.liststatus_icon.l3 { filter: invert(49%) sepia(95%) saturate(1315%) hue-rotate(348deg) brightness(101%) contrast(101%); }
.liststatus_icon.l4 { filter: invert(17%) sepia(74%) saturate(7213%) hue-rotate(357deg) brightness(89%) contrast(121%); }
.liststatus_icon.l5 { filter: invert(88%) sepia(10%) saturate(6134%) hue-rotate(359deg) brightness(104%) contrast(106%); }

Works with Angelic Serenade and Gekkou.

I might propose something for the grid but drawing triangles in the browser over a preexisting CSS is a PITA.

< report >@981,982,983,984: done (over the past few days, but you prolly noticed that already)

@985: Hmm, no, and that data isn't even available in the query DB. :/

< report >Last request, I promise. Is it possible to add some information about Wikidata ID somewhere in d2, d4 and/or d16?

So far, the only way for someone to know which links are taken from there is by looking through the discussion board (specifically at t12712.1, t12755.30, t12755.62 and t950.981) or looking at the links in releases, producers and staff.

Also, in d2#2 it says you can add links to Wikipedia and Novelnews.net, but i'm guessing that is just outdated information.

Edit: I don't know how creative commons licenses works, but shouldn't Wikidata be attributed in d17#3 like AniDB.net?Last modified on 2021-07-28 at 21:38

< report >Could users be allowed to re-order screenshots, please?
It doesn't seem to be possible now.
An easy solution would be to add little arrows next to the screenshots to move them up or down, in the "edit" page of each entry.

< report >Maybe it's already been suggested but I couldn't find anything about it.

I like to read VNs in my native language but it's not uncommon for the translation to be so bad that I have to switch back to the English version.

It also happens sometimes that English translations are very bad to the point of not being able to appreciate the VN.

What I want to suggest is to add a voting system like for VNs, except that it would be for translations.

< report >#990 That's a really shitty idea.

The only people qualified to rate a translation are the ones who understand the original language, who probably aren't gonna play a translation anyways.

< report >@991
But perhaps, we could manage votes in a manner similar to how we handle reviews and playtime? I mean, that it would be neat if one could point out which release their vote is based on.Last modified on 2021-08-17 at 11:40

< report >@989: No, has been suggested before but I don't see the point.
@990: No. has been suggested and shot down before as well. If a translation is bad enough, you can always indicate that in the notes.

< report >#990 Nope, bad idea. The feature would be abused as hell (translators and uploaders giving the best score possible is just an example), specially in translations of obscure visual novels or languages outside of the usual Japanese, Chinese, English, and Russian.

< report >#990 As was previously said, most people lack the knowledge to properly rate a translation and those who do will never bother doing it.
