It's at http://planet.renai.us/atom.xml

I'm not sure why it's not showing up for auto-discovery.

Hmm. I don't know (how to / if I can) do this for my Livejournal. But since I've just made a post about ren'ai game development, as I do about every 6 months :|, I'll add it if anyone can tell me how. It'd be based on http://alextfish.livejournal.com/tag/ren%27ai+games .
I released 3 VNs, many moons ago: Elven Relations (IntRenAiMo 2007), When I Rule The World (NaNoRenO 2005), and Cloud Fairy (the Cute Light & Fluffy Project, 2009).
More recently I designed the board game Steam Works (published in 2015), available from a local gaming store near you!

I've added the feed, but there's a routing issue preventing the aggregator from accessing certain blogs. It will show up once that gets resolved.

I don't really want strict on-topicness enforced, but samu-kun: stop it with the 10 unrelated wallpaper sized images of unrelated moe girls per unrelated post or somehow split your blog.
The rest is left as an exercise for the reader.

Tsch, it just wouldn't be delta if he didn't have something to complain about, eh?

All the images have been resized to be no wider than 500 px and are related to the topic of the post, so both your wallpaper size and unrelated to the post accusations are groundless. The only argument of merit is that the topic of the post itself doesn't have to do with English Visual Novels. Yet I can point out the odd post from Katawa Shoujo's blog that has nothing to do with English Visual Novels either and that which was meant to primarily cater to the Katawa Shoujo blog's target audience. So using your logic, why is it excusable for the Katawa Shoujo blog to make cuss word laced, sometimes even completely tasteless by my opinion, blog posts that have nothing to do with the EVN community for the sake of entertaining and amusing the blog's target readership, while the instant Sunrider's Landing does the same, you complain about it?

If Pytom wishes to enforce a strict EVN relevance clause for Planet EVN, then I think that it falls upon the both of us to establish more transparent and clear ways to filter between posts of relevance to the EVN community. But I also think that the only person who can establish that rule is Pytom and not a random third party.

My feeling, and this is from the other Planets I've seen, is that the occasional off-topic post is okay. The idea of a planet is to aggregate the thoughts of the EVN community. Not all of those thoughts will necessarily be on EVNs as a topic. And I think that's okay, as we'd like to broaden our reader's horizons.

That being said, the main reason people will _read_ the planet in the first place is to find out about visual novels. And we owe it to those readers to have most of the material be on-topic, or at least vaguely relevant.

So what I'm thinking is I want to impose a rule that at half the content we aggregate, averaged out, be VN-related. We'll take the occasional off-topic post. But when a blog starts having a string of off-topic posts, then I'll look seriously at removing the blog, or at least taking a tag.

It's probably also a good idea if long, off-topic posts have a break in them. (A "click here to read more" sort of link.) This way, we don't force the planet readers to load lots of off-topic images, which I think might be a main concern.

Nearly all of my posts have a sort of "off topic" flavor to them. I often talk about how my day went or experiences I've had in the past. However, my random rants are almost always related to what I wrote. For instance, if I wrote about a visit to Yellowstone National Park, my post will wax nostalgic about my visit to Yellowstone when I was a child. I'm trying to cut down on the vague posts like that and keep it more to game dev, but I think it's interesting to talk about where my inspiration came from.

I think it's a good idea; I need to post devblogs anyway, and this would be a good excuse to.
