Manga Length Poll
It's that time again: new poll time!
Question: What is your optimal manga length?
(Thanks go to the member Lucky9 for submitting the poll question)

I wonder how many people want Naruto/Bleach/One Piece to end...(Look at Prince of Tennis though; it finally ended...)

Previous Poll Stats:
Question: Do you watch the anime versions of the mangas you read?
All the time - votes: 893 (13.1%)
If the manga was good - votes: 2901 (42.5%)
Only for specific genres - votes: 389 (5.7%)
Sometimes, if I have nothing better to do - votes: 1275 (18.7%)
No, I prefer to stick with the original manga - votes: 753 (11%)
I read the manga after watching the anime - votes: 617 (9%)
There were 6828 total votes.
The poll ended: April 5th 2008

Hmm, it appears that most people read the manga first, and then decide if they should watch the anime or not, as long as the manga was good. At least these are the stats for mainly manga readers...Just remember that anime seems to be more popular~

Revamped "What's New" section
I've taken the liberty to update the "What's New" section. It now shows releases that are dated for 2008 and you can sort them 3 ways, by date added, by rating, and by past 3 month activity stats.

Hopefully this will be more useful than what was there before.

April Fool's Day
Although it is April Fool's Day, we at B-U WILL NOT tolerate any fake releases being announced/reported to us. If we, by accident, allow a fake release to get through, please report the mistake to us. (This includes manga and anime releases)

If any group attempts to keep posting fake releases as a joke, we will take severe action against the said group. We wish to remain as accurate as possible for our members

Anime Poll
New poll suggestion came from member Dubby, who submitted the idea today~
Simple poll, so no need to explain it.

Previous Poll:
Question: What makes a manga?
Art - votes: 1396 (19.9%)
Plot - votes: 3199 (45.6%)
Characters - votes: 1637 (23.3%)
Originality - votes: 743 (10.6%)
Popularity - votes: 36 (0.5%)
There were 7011 total votes.
The poll ended: March 29th 2008

So the interesting plot wins~ I think I should have put stuff in like "humor" and some other choices, oh well...

Restating an Old Rule
Some of you may not have realized, but back in the beginning of October, we disabled download links for all series marked "licensed" into the English language. The original news post can be found here:

Now you're wondering why I'm bringing this up now.
If you submit a manga release to us that is for a licensed series but an unknown scanlator (we define that as not being listed in our group database), even if there IS a download link, we will REJECT that release. Likewise, if you add a new group that has no website or IRC link, and is without any approved releases, unless you state a reason for this (through a pm to me), the group will also be REJECTED (if any questions about this, pm me).

(On an unrelated note, "Anonymous" or any variation of it will not be accepted as a group name in the release entry. Please use "?" for unknown groups)

For unlicensed series, releases made by unknown groups (as under the previously defined definition) without download links will be REJECTED.

In other words, don't try and submit anything that crosses the bounds as stated above.

Thank you for your cooperation (and if you don't, we can always press the "Delete" button)~
