    Well if people find the tag usefull, nothing to say, its only a little missleading cuz 90% of the time appearance of characters is a young good looking one in contrast to age.
    I guess the tag is for the extremes cases where a * Loli or a shota* got over 20 (just giving a random age) years old.
    But even if i complain i cant find a good replacement for the tag it would be like an *age complex* but that is missleading too

    Nope. Legal Loli is a different matter altogether...if you feel either the def or the tag name is not clear enough, you can pitch in!

    Proposal:
    Cats(Tag)
    Current: Any novel that contains cats
    Proposal: This tag can be used to indicate that the novel contains major number of scenes with a cat(s). This could either mean that a cat is the protagonist, or that a major character/mascot of the series is a cat. This tag is NOT to be used just because the protagonist owns a cat. The Pets tag is more apt, unless that pet being a cat is important.

    Are we allowed to correct genres? I couldn't tell whether there was already one or not, so if possible, I wanted to make the definition for Xuanhuan a little more clear:
    Current: "This term is use for those fiction set in a eastern culture background (Eastern Fantasy). In Xuanhuan you get five basic element (metal, wood, water, fire and earth), Chinese style gods, powerful animal monster like fox and tiger who can transform to human look, etc... It's like a mishmash of different elements and sometimes Xianxia-like elements are present. It's easy to confuse Xuanhuan with Xianxia."
    Proposal: "This term is used for novels in an Eastern fantasy setting. In Xuanhuan, there are usually five basic elements (metal, wood, water, fire, and earth), Chinese-style gods, powerful animal monsters like foxes and tigers that can take on human appearances, etc... It's a mishmash of different elements, and sometimes Xianxia-like elements are present. It's easy to confuse Xuanhuan with Xianxia."

    frankly, i still feels like there's something missing, but couldn't exactly pinpoint what it lacks. i tried reading this thread, then this, as well as WW's glossary but..

    True it kinda feels like it could be used for xianxia novels and no one would notice any difference.

    Are you trying to grammar editor the def or something? Like rephrase? Because I didn't notice any new distinguished line in your new def...

    Yeah, because the missing s's were bothering me...
    Other than that there was nothing I attempted to change, because I don't know the entire definition of Xuanhuan myself.

    Teachers

    Am I the only one that's seeing this definition weirdly? The second sentence seems to negate the first sentence...?

    Yup definitely. It should be good if you remove "when the mc is teacher or" part.

    Wait..can someone tell me why we have a teacher's tag? There is a master disciple relation tag which might not be the same but...a teacher's tag?

    Maybe we just need to update the def and edit the series listed.

    And a lot of other Dos and Don'ts too. You keep defining the tags in general, that I can understand like other people do too but you can't even use punctuation, commas and caps lock properly instead of just a mash of words? If you can't do so, don't. Just propose it here for others to view it first tyvm.
