Voting a 1 for all hentai won`t solve anything, because that would mean that the person who sothis (or any other, let just stick to sothis here) is best synced with, will suddenly drop a lot just because (s)he likes hentai and sothis doesn`t. The fact that some people can`t ever appreciate hentai (women mostly) while some others don`t or won`t mind hentai (men mostly) shouldn`t influence the hint too much.
So I also vote for the list to have an option like in the advanced search, which gives you a list of genres to include (or in this case, exclude). A dropdownbox would be already sufficient here though.
Another option is to give every anime an attribute -not in hintlist- or something. So as soon as it enters your HintList, you can click on it to prevent it to get back in the HintList. That way you can prevent certain anime (in my case all macross/robotech/gundam-related, which takes about 1/5 in mylist) to be displayed in the HintList you already know you won`t watch while you won`t vote for it.
Well, it`s not like it checks all genres to see which one you like. It checks your votes with votes from other people. If those other people you`re synced with don`t like horror stuff, then you won`t see much horror either. If you voted high for series like Scrapped Princess, Juuni Kokki, Escaflowne and such and someone else votes the same for those, then you`ll be synced because of those. But if you vote a 9 for Curse of the Undead Yoma (don`t stab me, it`s just an example), and that other person votes a 4 for it, then you may understand that that person doesn`t like horror at all, while he does have a similar taste with everything else you watch - except for horror.sothis wrote:the series that i've voted for the most are horror and sci fi, and barely any of those show up in my list, probably because i've plowed through so many of them. however, these are the ones i'd want the most!
And, I mean, how much horror titles are there out there? Most horror are demon/hentai combinations anyway
What you (sothis) want is a HintList where genre is taken much more into account, but that`s not being taken into account at all currently.
For myself, I`d like to see the HintList working on prequels/sequels as well. If I like Steel Angel Kurumi 1 (may god help me ) then I`d like to see if Steel Angel Kurumi 2 (or any of the alternate universe/storylines) is kind of similar voted by the people in my HintList.
Another example is Those Who Hunt Elves. I voted it a 5 because it was not really worth watching, but it wasn`t that bad. Suddenly the sequel appears in my HintList, while I thought a 5 was good enough reason to ban the sequel from the list.
But, as EXP already indicated before, there are various ideas available which will never be implemented because it`ll cause a serious performance issue.
