Re: Female Sexualization in Gaming

I'm saying at a fundamental level the tsundere requires this other facet, this missmatch. It is by definition a flaw (being unable to accept or express your feelings properly). Henpecking can be done well, like in the example you gave, but it doesn't require any hidden motive, or emotional conflict...

Re: Female Sexualization in Gaming

Sounds like bias to me. I think Japanese culture has different kinds of objectification you're not looking out for? The Tsundre, for example, looks to me like a Japanese version of that "Henpecking" western stereotype. To contrast, 'henpecking' is simply just being domineering and nitpick...

Re: Meta discussion

As far as "testing claims", I'd use the elephant test. If it looks like a claim, or a number of people react like it was a claim, it was a claim. Your system incentivizes toeing the line of what counts as a claim (especially in situations where you have cop results or similar). How do you...

I don't think that you would not be told about your non-votingness. We've had other people self-vote without problems so it's not an anti-self mechanic. Further, I think trying to hide that fact in a votepile is scum behaviour. For that, unless something else comes up:
