New Poll - Loli/Shota
This week's poll from mattw895 could be a bit polarizing... If you have an opinion about loli and shota, do you think it should be banned or made illegal? I realize there's no options for something like "No / Don't care", but too bad. Deal with it. Have an opinion on all or nothing. There's also no option for "What's that?" for similar reasons.

You can submit poll ideas here (and try to keep them manga/anime-related)

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Do you have any manga-related apps on your phone or handheld device?
Yes, and I regularly use them - votes: 2723 (27.9%)
Yes, but I don't really use them - votes: 1590 (16.3%)
No - votes: 4129 (42.3%)
I don't have a phone or handheld device that can install apps - votes: 1328 (13.6%)
There were 9770 total votes.
The poll ended: November 15th 2014

Hmm, I'm actually quite surprised by the number of people that do have apps like that...

New Poll - Manga App
This week's poll from BaeSooky deals with apps on your phone or tablet. If you own one, do you have any manga-related apps on them? Maybe the MangaUpdates app? Or some other app that allows you to read manga or keep track of stuff? For the purposes of the poll, let's leave out games that are based on manga/anime series.

Recent Outage Due to DMCA Request
This news post is a bit late, but that's because we were trying to investigate and obtain responses from all the parties involved.

Our recent downtime last week was a result of two DMCA requests. It was from an intermediary on behalf of two different companies. Unfortunately, our host did not notify us and instead disabled our IP address immediately. The most recent requests were due to displaying copyrighted cover art. As some of you have noticed, we have removed the images from some respective series pages (hopefully temporarily). We are currently in the process of looking for another host. It is unacceptable to cause severe downtime without forwarding the requests to us and allowing us to respond. It is likewise poor form by the intermediary to use such tactics without attempting to contact us directly.

Thank you, MU Staff

Mangaupdates Global Site Downtime

The recent downtime was (is still) being caused by our host. It turns out that one of our IP addresses in our virtual network has stopped responding to requests on ports 80 or 443.

I've moved to a different IP and updated DNS, but it will take up to a day for the DNS updates to traverse the globe and become effective for everyone.

Sorry for the trouble. We're sending in a support ticket, so maybe they can help us figure out what's wrong.
