Just another thought (sorry): would it make sense to have tags like “Exclusive Gay Romance”?


#185

And definitely the reverse, too, would be a boon. “Gay Romance Option” as a tag would be a filter I’d use a lot… I’ve already glanced at Hosted Games’ codes before reading them just in order to check if they were straight-locked…


#186

Ok, I’ve added some romance tags as well. Let me know if there should be others or if there is a way to better clarify the existing tags.


#187

How do we add tags? I’ve looked on the Edit Game Details page and there doesn’t seem to be an option.


#188

In the Edit Game Details you should see a “Story Category Tags” title text and a link beneath it to show all the tags. Since there are so many (and growing) I didn’t want them to clutter up the page by default. If it’s not clear I can figure out another way to ensure authors know where the tag options are.


#189

I see that link, but nothing happens when I click it.


#190

Nonbinary romance option, I suppose?

Would people see “asexual romance” as meaning that an asexual romance will be possible, or that there’s at least one romance option who is only asexual?


#191

Odd. What OS/browser are you using? Maybe I can figure out why the jQuery isn’t working for you.

Ok added. And clarified “asexual romance” as “asexual romance option”


#192

Windows 8, Firefox
(and 20 characters)


#193

Presumably then “Gay Romance Option” and “Heterosexual Romance Option” mean that individual ROs are gay or straight, not that gay or straight romances are supported?


#194

Not sure what the issue could be, so I just left it open by default now. I suppose it’s fine like that. A bit of scrolling never hurt anyone.

I’m not sure… it gets confusing trying to convey what refers to the PC and what refers to the other characters. There’s probably a better way to word it, though. I’ll have to think on it and figure something out.


#195

Huh, I interpreted it the latter way, but mostly just because I was hoping for a filter that would allow me to exclude games that didn’t include an opportunity for a gay romance.


#196

I’ve been considering it. How about the following:

Gay Romance Relationship Option
Hetero Romance Relationship Option
Non-Binary Romance Relationship Option
Asexual Romance Relationship Option

Does that clarify that the supporting characters are available for these romantic relationships regardless of the PC’s orientation?


#197

What about “Romanceable Gay NPC” and so on? Because while I definitely want gay options, I also want gay characters, and would like a tg for such (if it’s not too much trouble).


#198

So let us change my suggestions to:

Romanceable Gay NPC
Romanceable Hetero NPC
Romanceable Non-Binary NPC
Romanceable Asexual NPC

Does that make more sense?


#199

Is there a label for (romanceable) gender-fluid npc’s already? I couldn’t see the list of tags on my computer. Yesterday, at least. (Also on Windows 8, latest build of Firefox)


#200

No, not yet. We are still discussing on how to tag romanceable options. I do think gender-fluid NPCs should be added to the discussions, of course. Do you think that ‘Romanceable Gender-Fluid NPC’ will be appropriate for addition to the current suggestions?

Also, as for the problem with seeing the list of tags, I have removed the jQuery ‘show’ option and displayed them by default so hopefully that helps. Let me know if you have any issues seeing the category/tag content. Thanks.


#201

I can see the tags now.

Can there be a tag for animal PC? (I have a story where the PC is a cat). I guess it falls under non-human as well, but that makes me think of fantasy races more than about animals.

Edit:

Oh, and can there be a tag for Romanceable Bisexual NPC as well? I think that one’s still missing.


#202

Added both suggestions. Thanks for pointing them out!


#203

I’m afraid I’m still a bit confused: does “Exclusive gay romance” mean that all romances are gay? (And if not, how does it differ from “Romanceable Gay NPC”?)
