  1. What are you playing?

    I just finished Fata Morgana this week and wrote up a little post on it if anyone is interested. (Beware lots of spoilers).
  2. Fuwanovel Recommendation Site

    The links were all initially determined from the release links provided on VNDB. These tend to be a bit inconsistent, so we've been manually fixing the ones we notice but with so many VNs on there, that's a slow process. Please let us know if you notice an incorrect link, or a missing one, and we'll try to fix it. As for distinguishing those VNs with both all-age and 18+ versions, it's on the pending list of things to look at. I'm just not sure yet on how best to handle it.
  3. Fuwanovel Recommendation Site

    At the moment I quite like how some folks have done the little preview paragraph followed by the link. At the moment there are so few reviews that we can just show everything, but eventually we'll need to organise them somehow. So yeah perhaps we could have a section specifically for external links.
  4. Fuwanovel Recommendation Site

    I'm really curious as to how the review content will turn out. Whether it's more short comments, previews with links to longer blog posts, or quite lengthy posts. As you say, I think shorter comments generally work better with this kind of format, a couple of paragraphs per review perhaps, with a link to a longer fuller review should the user want to go into more detail (or spoilers).
  5. Fuwanovel Recommendation Site

    Excluding those VNs that you've already voted on would be a great feature, but it's tricky to implement as I'd either need to maintain a copy of all the vndb data on the recc site or else load up vndb pages in real-time, both of which are a bit messy. It's something I'll keep on the list as potential features, but I can't promise it'll be added. As for the full size screenshots, that's something on my to-do list, I'll hopefully have it up in the next few days.
  6. Fuwanovel Recommendation Site

    Ah yep I've been meaning to add that. At the moment I've been cheating by using an admin page which lists all the VNs, but I'll add a search field today.
  7. Fuwanovel Recommendation Site

    @Fiddle While I love the screenshots, to just clarify Palas point: those of us who made this site aren't Fuwa staff members, and it isn't hosted on Fuwanovel's servers. Emi bought the fuwanovel.se domain that we're using just last week. We wanted to brand it with the Fuwanovel name in recognition that this new site is run by fans in collaboration with the wider VN community. There are no ads, no affiliate links, and no sponsorships. It would be nice to have the support of the main Fuwanovel site admins, but that's not currently the situation.
  8. Fuwanovel Recommendation Site

    Yeah that's a fair point. We could adjust the range it uses a bit. I'll look into it tomorrow.
  9. Fuwanovel Recommendation Site

    Ah that could be an interesting feature. We'll look into it in a bit. It'll require manually vetting all the VNs on there to check their status, so it's not something I'd be adding immediately, but I'd like to see it in future.
  10. Recommend a VN to Fuwa's Recommendation Program

    I just wanted to give a little update as it's been a week or so since we ran the sorter quiz. We got nearly 20k votes in total, and ended up with a pretty great ranking in my opinion, so thank you to everyone who voted and suggested VNs! Unfortunately there were a few last minute suggestions we weren't able to add as the bulk of the voting happened over the first couple of days, but we hope to add more VNs to the site over time. We've got most of the coding done on the main site, we just need to verify the data and collect some additional screenshots etc, so I expect it'll take around a week before we're ready to go live. Here's a little preview of how it looks: A big shout out to @Emi for her help in producing the visual design of the site, it looks absolutely gorgeous!
  11. Fuwanovel's VN recommendation website design

    Oh sorry for being unclear. This is just a fan project. There won't be any ads or patreon or anything else generating revenue, we're just doing it for the fun of it, so it isn't a paid gig. The coding is generally pretty straightforward, it's just the visual style that I'd love to get some other's ideas on. You're still welcome to help out with the code if you like, but I totally get if you aren't interested in an unpaid gig.
  12. The Fuwa VN recommendation list is progressing well (see post). In just under a week, we've gotten over 17 thousand votes and a pretty reliable ranking of newbie VNs. I won't be posting the results just yet as I'll leave the voting open for another week and I don't want to distort any votes by showing the current ranking, but it's a great mix of genres so far. We're currently experimenting with a few different sorting algorithms to get the best result. We're also working on the website that'll allow users to enter their genre preferences and display the best newbie VNs in those genres, and are looking for any web designers who might be interested in giving a hand. While I'm adequate for an amateur, I'm no expert, and I'd love to get the input of some more experienced designers. If you're interested, just reply here, or send me a DM on Discord (Sunleaf_Willow /(^ n ^=)\#1616).
  13. Recommend a VN to Fuwa's Recommendation Program

    Ah I'm sorry, it looks like we missed that one. We had a few people copying the suggestions into the google sheet and so I think each of us assumed one of the others had handled it already. I've just added it now so it should be in the sorting quiz.
  14. Recommend a VN to Fuwa's Recommendation Program

    As Palas says, I believe all the VNs that were recommended here have been added. You can vote on them here.
  15. Recommend a VN to Fuwa's Recommendation Program

    Funnily enough, we've just been discussing that topic. Currently, anything that has a sexual content tag is flagged as adult. If you check all 3 of those VNs and turn on "show me spoilers," you'll see all 3 have sexual content tags. However this often just tends to be a text-only reference to a sexual act rather than a h-scene. So we're going to try and update such VNs to not be flagged as adult, but instead have a note in their description that the story touches on some sexual themes.
