< report >Could wishlist and finished be mutually exclusive labels? I often skip the other steps and directly mark vns as finished, but that doesn't remove them from my wishlist. Finished is already mutually exclusive with all the other default labels except wishlist and blacklist.Last modified on 2022-09-21 at 02:48

< report >There is one problem I always have in this very discussion board: if you're not a person who discusses stuff here all the time, it's not at all easy to understand which page you find yourself at, and whether this is the middle of a thread, beginning, or end.

I thought about it a bit, and I think I know why.
I think it's because of how the page numbering is shown, and so I have an improvement suggestion, that I took from another board, and that I think is not as confusing.

Here's the visual: link

And here's a description:
- Show page numbering and 'Previous/'Next' buttons always either on left or right hand side, but never split in half.
- 'Previous' and 'Next' on either end, as long as there is a previous or next page.
- Always show first and last page, but ideally as a number, rather than text.
- Show the current page, and highlight it in a contrasting color.
- Show two preceding and two following pages, as numbers.
- If there are more than 10 pages than have a 'go to page...' thingy.

I guess not all of this has to be implemented to perceive improvements. But at least clearly seeing where you are (as a page number, contrasting compared to other ones) would already help a lot.

Thanks for taking it into consideration :).

here's my script to do this. it's pretty basic and naive but I never saw the person(s) again so works enough

< report >Can we get an easy way to see your Vote date from the vn page? Clicking the note icon shows me the Start date and Finish date, which are empty and useless, why can't Vote date be here. Or alternatively is there a way to auto-import Vote date into Finish date?

< report >@yorhel Can you let us view past revisions via the edit history of deleted pages?
At the moment all past revisions just take you to the "this VN has been deleted" page.
It would be really useful for editing purposes, being able to reference other people's edits.

< report >I'd rather not display anything of deleted entries. They're supposed to be deleted, after all. I'm afraid that the more information we show, the more rewarding it will be for trolls and spammers to do their thing.

< report >The thing is most deleted VNs aren't trolls, they're simply cancelled VNs like Les Grandes Odalisques and now I can't reference all the previous edits on it anymore... Same goes for if 2 people make a page at the same time so one gets deleted, but it had information the other didn't that we might want to check.

I don't think it would really make a difference to trolls, you can still see troll edits on the edit history of other VNs and it doesn't really matter, and it would be a pretty convenient feature.

< report >Can we have a Nintendo eShop parser for the "External Links" thing in the release editor?

It is convenient to be able to go to official stores from the VN page in one click, and this functionality exists for other storefronts like Steam, Itch, and even PSN (which has fewer releases across 3 consoles on the DB than Switch alone does).

I have half a mind to request an XBox parser as well but given how few releases it gets that's quite clearly less of an issue.Last modified on 2022-10-15 at 09:54
