< report >Well, I'm sure many people know that VN's can be some rather...dangerous fields to be in. For that reason alone, I wouldn't be into the genre if I didn't know what to expect from certain VN's.

Which to me is why this site is so useful. VN's are not afraid to explore the darkest of dark topics (especially the 18+ ones) and god knows how disappointed I would be every time I found a promising VN only to find out it has things that I dislike, especially if I invested so much time into them.

This isn't nearly as much of an issue in other mediums tbh, like anime and mainstream games (with exceptions, obviously). Many times probably to lower things like age ratings and appeal to as much variety of audiences as they can.

But yeah, if you like Eroge but don't like specific genres, living without this site is kind of hard. Thank you for it.

< report >yorhel is to m00t just as vndb is to 4chan. banzai to simple interfaces!

but honestly that's probably one aspect you never saw coming. that this is, in the end, an otaku thing. and that is to say: filthy casuals get out. otakus never wanted your watered-down, censorship-infested, politically correct, ESRB-rated mediums that tarnishes if not insulting that what could have been the purest, unadulterated forms of art. If you think I'm mad, it's because I am. and I will only offer two words: Sekai Project.

I've been in the realms of SJW and oh boy I'm sure as mad as it gets. They always want censorship and their reasoning falls under the lines of "Hey, this thing sexually objectifies women!" or "this thing encourages racism sexism homophibic islamophobic whatever yadda yadda" or "minorities aren't represented enough". No to censorship, normies get out!

it's actually a great thing that this site never received any upgrades to its interface as this in turn will repel your filthy casual "Eww, this site sure is gross".

if yorhel leaves just like m00t did, I'd say that would be one of the darkest times vndb will face just as 4chan did. but until then, happy birthday vndb. you've (un)expectedly bred a bunch of otakus.

but then I noticed v21531.3

*embarrassed laughter* I can't believe you notice my rambling. I was half-joking when I wrote that. But alas, what's done is done.

I just want to say that VNDB has introduced me to a whole new world of entertainment (Which reminds me, I really need to clear up my backlog). I first got into visual novels years ago to help me with my English, now Japanese, and this website had been very useful in finding necessary information.

If I may suggest, can there be a "Preview" funcition? It would be quite helpful to see how one's edit or post looks like before submitting. Don't worry about it too much though, it's only a suggestion.

Sorry for the long post, I tend to ramble. Congrats on reaching double digits. Let's see if we can make it to triple. I don't think the visual novel market will last until then, but one can dream.
