< report >Patch release entries can't have resolution info. Consequence: you won't get a warning when adding wrong-resolution screenshots from a patch.

Suggestion: either make the field available or add a field for "based on: <another release>" so the patch can inherit the parent release's resolution (and any other info that might be useful for, say, searching)

< report >Is it possible to add an option to hide vn's originally written on certain languages, made by certain ppl, or by those who speak in a certain language, from the site so they wouldn't show in search, in image flagging, on the home page, when clicking "Random visual novel",in discussion boards, etc.?

so they wouldn't show in search, in image flagging, on the home page, when clicking "Random visual novel",in discussion boards, etc.
not all, but you can exclude it from most of them by going to link -> set the filter however you like (here's with OELVN being filtered link ) -> Save/Load -> Default -> Save current filters as default.
or is the filter not visible from the page?

Nintendo Italia
Nintendo Nederland
Nintendo Österreich
Nintendo Portugal
Nintendo Россия
Nintendo Schweiz/Suisse/Svizzera
Nintendo South Africa
Nintendo UK & Ireland

So yeah its quite a bunch ... (and there are even more ...)

The solution described by #1406 will work for search, random VN, random screenshots, upcoming and recent releases, but it won't work for recent changes, reviews, or discussions. Unfortunately you're stuck with EVN friends for those.

< report >can we have the option to sort VN by id? I was checking if TBA VNs actually dead link and it would be a lot easier to just check them by id (date of addition), instead of randomly one by one. I know you can do that with query but it's kinda a hassle to do. I'll probably need it in the future as well for something else.Last modified on 2022-10-25 at 00:13

Fiiiiiine. I was hesitant to add this because the browse interface isn't really intended for moderation tools-like querying, but now that it's been requested so many times I am left with no choice. I-it's not like I'm doing this for you or anything.

sorry, I'm not a fan of Heroine's Papa as a Hero. I'm faithful to vndb-chan.

but that aside, thanks!

< report >Just realised there is now a tab in your profile to force show/highlight/hide tags. Great feature, but could there be an option to highlight tags without always showing them?
I pretty much always search for the Male Protagonist and Female Protagonist tags when checking out vns, and highlighting them makes it a lot easier. But I'd rather not spoil myself a potential hidden protagonist

< report >Hi! I would like to suggest that we could use the display option "Format" (Rows, Cards and Grid) on the user's wishlist and on the user visual novels page.

Being able to see the images next to the title names makes the site much more organized, easier on the eyes and it would help users to recognize titles they want to play next in a more comfortable way. Specially if said users have long wishlists and a lot of finished titles.

I know that this feature would probably need some twerking on those pages, but it would be very helpful if someday we could get the Cards and Grid on the "Wishlist" and "My visual novel list" pages...

< report >#1413 As an alternative option, you can use the tag 'My Labels' -> 'Wishlist' on the database to return only the vns in your wishlist and display them as cards or grid. You can then save this query with the 'Save/Load' button to quickly access it later on.

< report >is there any way to filter my wishlist by play time? i want to check shorter VNs first without having to click each title one by one

< report >You can't order them by length, but you can do stuff like very short (<2h) VN in your wishlist or VNs in your wishlist shorter than 10 hours

Sorry for being ignorant, but as much as I try I can't make 'My Labels' or 'Wishlist' to show in the search engine for me and work for some reason

< report >If you can't see filters in link, disable your adblock for the page. If it's a different problem, you will have to be a little more precise.

< report >Is there an easy way to see the different cover images of a visual novel? Recently, SubaHibi's cover was changed to the 10th-anniversary one and the only way to check the older image is to go to the edit history and search for the edit which made the change.

This is annoying enough and would be worse if you didn't know whether a visual novel has multiple covers or not. Having a designated photos section similar to MAL would be very helpful here.

< report >I would like to be able to save the display options when saving filters. For example, I would like to be able to have two presets: both set development status as finished, but one is ordered by release date, and the second one by date added (very useful new ordering btw to not miss anything).

< report >If we could mark VNs/characters with tags/traits without having to see spoilers that would be great. Ideally I shouldn't have to learn a character will die when all I am doing is marking them with their choice of pronoun.
