As far as Choukou Shinki Ixseal is concerned, delete all "characters" named Dein and Sein. They're just enemies in the game and don't interact with the main cast bar slavishly obeying orders with grunts and fighting.

Administrators/moderators might want to reword the "makes an appearance" description to prevent repeat occurrences. Right now the impression it gives is any mob character who appears in a VN deserves an entry and I'm not sure that's the point of cameo characters.Last modified on 2018-09-24 at 16:08

I played the Seiyuu Danshi game. I wasn't sure about what role to give the characters. I gave the "makes an appearance" role to characters you could skip the entire game with with no interaction. Nearly all of them have quests, various dialogue, and missions for you that if you complete them, give you rewards. They had no name that appeared in the game, so their names is what appeared in the Renpy code. Miko 1 can be deleted though. She just welcomes you to the shrine.

I'll try to compile a list of characters that can be deleted that do NOT affect the game or stats in any way.Last modified on 2018-09-24 at 17:56

@dk382 for Pastel Chime Continue at least, it's instances of heroines with different appearances. d12#2 makes a specific point discouraging making such instances: Kanbara Sachiko Phil the Angel Phil the Demon Celles Loublan Silvia Call Vennet Kojour
similar cases for Choukou Tenshi Escalayer -- FM-77 Kouenji Madoka Escalayer

Okay, I cracked open the demo again. You can delete these characters as they only say one or two lines. I agree with #2501 about more clarification with adding characters because the FAQ says "if they say some lines, go ahead!"

There may be a chance in the future that the characters have to be readded as this is only the demo and I have not 100% completed it.

Whew, that's a lot of deletions.

@gregory I went ahead and weeded out anyone who was a nameless NPC for Seiyuu Danshi, not just the stuff you linked. As you said, they can always be added again later if they're truly important. I don't see the need for NPCs who don't have a name and only a handful of lines. It really clutters up the character list and makes it difficult to navigate.

yorhel has in the past stated that any character who makes any kind of appearance in a game qualifies for an entry, no matter how minor. But this is extremely impractical for games with loads of NPCs and such, imo. I would much rather see some kind of limit placed so we don't end up with RPGs that have dozens or hundreds of character entries, making it overly difficult to single out the actually important characters. The Seiyuu Danshi list was rather ridiculous as it was. Do we need or want an entry for a lost dog you only see for a few minutes during a side quest or whatever? That detracts more than it adds to the value of the character page, imo.Last modified on 2018-09-25 at 15:10

Okay, I deleted some more of bakaaki's unnecessary instances and whatnot, but I've barely made a dent in his edit history and I have shit to do today. And on the topic of unnecessary NPCs, Daiteikoku seems lousy with them. At the very least, the named armored people who share the same sprite can probably go, as well as the various animals. Not sure who else.Last modified on 2018-09-25 at 15:31

I think a good rule of thumb is that if a character who falls under "makes an appearance" doesn't have a name and/or a unique sprite, think twice about whether they're actually worth adding.

Hanesaki Mio feels like a pointless instance considering it's just minor appearance changes.

Alright, I'm deleting the animals, characters with generic names, and characters with generic sprites from Daiteikoku in an effort to make the character list actually browsable and usable. There may be other equally useless character entries in there, but since I never played it, I can't necessarily judge this.

edit: Bakaaki has filled the site with so much garbage that I trigger some kind of anti-spam defense when I try to remove it all, lolLast modified on 2018-09-30 at 21:58

When I said link, I was serious. It is the last part of a series (CLOCKUP Collection) scheduled for 2008. It was never released.

Someone should perhaps notify the developer of that then, before he makes more entries to the database that nobody but him can play.

One such entry was added yesterday.
