    Hi everybody,
    It's been a while. I'll make a personal update post at some point, but for the moment I'm posting to ask our users to take the first of what may be a series of surveys we put out this Summer. This first survey is essentially an open invitation to tell me exactly what problems are bothering you about the site, anonymously. My site work this Summer will be heavily influenced by this survey, so if you care about Fuwa and want to see site improvements, please participate.
    Survey Link: https://goo.gl/forms/DHWvWdmusKKXZBh43
    I want to thank @Emi for a recent email, @Clephas for some recent posts in the forums I've read which gave me encouragement, all our moderators, @Decay for his patience with my crazy schedule and a soft VNTS pause, and all of our users for keeping Fuwanovel alive. Much love to all of you.

    I'd love to consider adding yours (and several more) review blogs to the hub. The hub has stalled recently due to a complicated CMS bug, but the developer actually got back to me yesterday with a customized patch, and I hope to get it installed before this weekend. Afterwards, I should be able to add you. Just submit your site details per the link posted above and we can work on that!
    The hub structure and guidelines will be part of the site work this summer, and I'm hoping to bring more clarity to it and the other site projects. Going to plug the recent survey and ask everyone to submit their gripes, questions, and concerns!

    This is something I'd like to post about on the front site. A community update is long-overdue and there's a lot to talk about. I haven't looked at the analytics for a few weeks, but the site's still growing traffic-wise. The front site's major traffic goes to VNTS and Reviews. Kaguya showed some of the forums data, I'll add that walkthroughs are still big. And VNTL-Moon, oddly, is still getting traffic despite being woefully outdated and buggy.

    Hello there! I know it's not the first time I start this topic, but I'll treat this as my final try. So, I've now established my blog as a separate entity and proved, hopefully, though over 30 posts, that my reviews and commentary don't completely suck. In the past, several bloggers had the ability to publish their reviews in the FuwaReviews, with a fairly short teaser going to the Reviews Hub along with a link to the full article on their external site. I want to review two rather interesting, fresh OELVN releases this summer: Sable's Grimoire and Perceptions of the Dead 2. Let's assume that the content I create won't be cancerous enough to actually hurt the half-dead Fuwa frontpage by its inclusion. This creates a few questions in my mind:
    1. Did the said bloggers, such as Meru, had direct access to the Reviews hub, or someone posted the reviews for them?
    2a. If the latter is true, who made the desitions on what to "borrow" from the external sites?
    2b. If the former is true, who currently controls the access to the Reviews Hub?
    Sorry for the public posts, but in the past I've tried to figure things out through private messages, without much response, so I thought a bit of public discussion could maybe clear things up.

    Can't see main site at all, but I can bring some neat forum stats!
    We've been really about the exact same for the past year and a half. After we killed torrents there was a big decline, then a soft one until mid 2016 where we reached what we have right now, where it has been more or less stuck since forever. We get about as many new users as we lose old ones, and so the balance remains stable (note that we're approaching what has historically been out lowest period of activity in the year, as you can see by all the declines around this time.)  
    We can still consistently reach over 150 topics almost every month, which is already more than when I joined the forums. 
    The community right now is pretty stable, though we can't really match up to our relevance in the old days.
    But that's torrents for you.

    I answered the question earlier in this thread.
    While the situation with the interface is a lot different today (new people and it's partially translated), the part about spoiling the story still stand.
     
    Regarding injecting the translation, it does work and while I have fixed most issues, it's still not glitch free. I prefer to play it safe and injecting translated text was my first task before doing anything else at all. When switching to the HD version, the first thing I did was to make sure I could control the text ingame. I did that even before transferring the already translated text. It wouldn't be fun to finish the translation and then discover the VN engine refuse new text.

    Looks like I finally nailed how to inject translated images back into the game. I have only tested it a little, but so far the majority of the images works as intended. There are however exceptions, meaning it still requires some work. Also I obviously haven't added the images, which have yet to be translated.

    How to Submit New Walkthroughs
    We need your help to build our walkthrough database! If you'd like to contribute a full or partial walkthrough, please follow these instructions:
    Follow the format guide below for making a walkthrough topic in the "Unformatted walkthrough" section. When finished (with the full walkthrough, or whatever portion you wanted to add), PM a moderator. We will make sure the formatting is correct and move it to this forum in all of its glory! Walkthrough Format
    These are our formatting rules which you should obey in order to be moved to the 'Walkthrough' forum. Once finished creating your thread, PM a moderator and he will check your thread to make sure it follows the formatting rules, and will also help fix any mistakes.
    Game Image - (Centered) (No NSFW  or Spoiler images, please) (You can embed a a link to VNDB here, if you want) Game Title - (Centered, bold, large font) (You can embed a a link to VNDB here, if you want) Link to Legal Source - In case of a fan-translated title, include a link to where to obtain the patch. (Centered) Game Synopsis - (Can pull from Fuwanovel page, VNDB, write it yourself, etc.) Ending Guide - (Use Spoiler Tags Where Appropriate) (Explain the types of endings possible in the game; break them down by "hero"/"heroine"; provide suggested route order if important) Individual Route Walkthroughs - (USE SPOILER TAGS) (Each individual route needs to be a full walkthrough from the beginning of the game. Please do not use saves or checkpoints.) Source - (If you based your walkthrough on another person's work, please post thanks to them, and a link to their guide) Notes
    Bad Endings, CGs, Achievements, Extra Scenes and such are not required, although recommended for a thoroughly comprehensive guide. VNs with meaningful gameplay can and should accommodate for the gameplay, including tips or explanations of the game systems as necessary. Examples of Walkthrough Formats:
    Single Route Character Routes Initial Route + Character Routes Story Routes Single Route, Different Epilogue/Scenes Walkthrough Template
    If you're not sure how to create a Walkthrough, follow the general template listed below.
    Implementing Save Points Into Full Guides
    We do not recommend relying on Save Points for your walkthroughs, for the sake of user friendliness. However, also for the sake of user friendliness, including suggestions for save points in order to save time is a good idea.
    First, you must make a full wakthrough for every route. Do not use Save Points. After that, mark places for save points with [SAVE 01], [SAVE 02], etc. In any routes in that you wish to load a save point go with something like [LOAD 01]. These save points are complementary. They are there for those who wish to use them, but the walkthrough should stand without them. Check this walkthrough for an example of this system.
    Be sure to include an explanation and ensure that it is clear to the reader that the Save Points are not necessary. Furthermore, if there is no enforced playing order, the reader may choose to tackle the routes by any order, which would mean that certain Load Points may turn into Save Points.
    Tips for Allowing Player Freedom in a Guide
    What to do if You Find an Error
    If you find an error in any of the walkthroughs, please post your concerns in this topic or inform staff via PM. Thank you for your diligence!

    The main indicator you should check for is the total. That one counts every single line regardless of where it is located. When that one reaches 100%, then it's translated. There is still editing and other quality improving tasks left though.
     
    I'm thinking about how to present status in the future. Adding line after line of 100% is not really useful. Also the listing is incomplete because declaring everything with descriptions of what goes where will spoil. However this isn't my top priority and this will have to do, at least for a while.
