Screencaps are such a hassle. Wouldn't it suffice if I confirmed that he's telling the truth -- happened to have a few episodes on my hd, and the so-called episode 1 of 2nd season shows the episode number as 14, not 1. (How does one one take a screencap of a video stream, btw? Everytime that I've tr...

Hm. This seems pretty dead lately. I suppose everyone is waiting for the mods to do something...? *nudge, nudge* Might as well tackle an issue that has been bothering me, while I'm here -- the subcategories of Genre::Fantasy:: seem like a mess. The subcategory ::Magic seems useless, never mind that ...

I'd recommend Zoom Player. The standard version is free, and should be sufficient for most users. There's also professional version, not free, but it's fully configurable and does have an impressive amount of features. Can pretty much do everything that all the other players can do, combined. BSPlay...

Here the category weight is the 1-3 stars used to determine the significance of that category. Then how do I incorporate these scores into the hint? So let's say that it has been determined that the user likes ::Epic anime -- you could always generate the recommendations normally first, then check ...

Which reminds me -- I've heard that Anime Hint will be revamped after the new category system is finished. Where did you hear that??? I have no idea how to incorporate the categories in the hint... Well, er... Perhaps you'd better ask exp about it. -_-; ...but as you can see from his above post, I ...

For much the same reason there also needs to be a category for Magical Girls but that would probably just as well under Characters:People: as under Genre:Fantasy:. I'm not quite sure... ::Magical Girl as a category seems to imply more than the presence of just a... erm... magical girl, it also impl...

Dynamic::Plot::Tragedy Grave of the Fireflies, Now and Then, Here and There, Dynamic::Plot::Slice of Life Twin Spica, Windy Tales Those seem more like genres than dynamic to me. Tragery is a subgenre of drama, so shouldn't it be Genre::Drama::Tragedy ? ...and by it's most common definition, slice-o...

Not sure if that's true or not, but if it is, I suppose it'd be somewhat useless to base your changes on the current system... ...and exp already told you how to contact egg -- pm (private mess...

Andemon: Go read up on Dystopias again, you're less confused than he is, but Nausicaa is never one, and the others seem borderline. Hrm. I can list at least twenty sites right now that do list Nausicaä as a dystopian setting. I haven't actually watched it, but it's so widely quoted as an example of...

Re: Lot of propositions

The only mistake (from my point of view) is Dystopia in "place", cause it's a category of sci-fi. And Dystopia is not the perfect word, cause sometime it wat Utopia, so Dystopia-Utopia is a bette way to say it. Erm... Dystopia is the opposite of Utopia. Blade Runner, A Clockwork Orange, and 1984 ar...

Genre::Thriller sounds good enough for me. It's one of those hard-to-place genres -- I mean, there's action thrillers, mystery thrillers, horror thrillers, political thrillers, psychodrama, erotic thrillers,... ...but most movie sites list it as a main genre, separate from horror and mystery. It's ...

I agree with them being called anthro thats much more clear but i think they should be considered peoples much more than animals. Someone already added Characters::Kemono . That translates as beast, but if I'm not mistaken, it's also used for anthros.. [EDIT] ...and now someone has renamed it Chara...

It's still systematically 'wrong'. If you want the functionality, you should bug exp for find (node) and not (leaves of node) , rather than adding a phantom category. Which is 'wrong', 'wrong', 'wrong'. That'd work. Consider exp bugged. ...and since you feel so strongly about it, I retract my reque...

I think it's good and all that you added the categories that I suggested, but I don't expect everyone to know what space opera , steampunk or kemono mean -- without consulting an encyclopedia, that is. The genre definitions will no doubt be updated at some point ( http://www.anidb.net/forum/viewtopi...

And I really do think that every sports anime should have a category of it's own. Genre::Action::Sports::American Football Genre::Action::Sports::Go Genre::Action::Sports::Ping Pong But AFAIK, for each of them there's only one anime made. If you don't want categories with only one anime, maybe you ...
