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?
Choices:
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:
http://www.mangaupdates.com/news.html?id=276

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)~

Happy Easter!
To all the Christian/Catholic people out there, happy Easter! If you guys are on Spring Break, lucky you too~ (As for me, my Spring Break is in 2 weeks still...)

Gacha Gacha
We (the admins) decided to rearrange the way the series Gacha Gacha is presented in the database. Now, the two different arcs are separated correctly:
Volumes 1-5: Gacha Gacha ~Capsule~
Volumes 6-16: Gacha Gacha ~Secret~

The original series entry has been left alone so that votes and comments still exist. If you favor one arc over the other, now you can vote differently.

New Poll - What Defines a Good Manga?
This week's poll is more about why you like manga. Just choose the option that MOST fits your taste. Thanks go to member Razril for giving the poll suggestion.
Note: The option of "Popularity" means you read the series because everyone else does (which brings to mind the Naruto/Bleach/One Piece argument)

And the results for last week's poll:
Question: How do you choose to read a new series?
Choices:
The magazine where it's serialized in - votes: 64 (1%)
The artist/author and his/her previous works - votes: 889 (14.2%)
The scanlation group - votes: 336 (5.3%)
The associated anime or related media - votes: 118 (1.9%)
The popularity of the series - votes: 274 (4.4%)
Recommend- ations from others - votes: 562 (8.9%)
Same genre as my favorite series - votes: 1275 (20.3%)
I just read random manga - votes: 1319 (21%)
I come to MU and see a new series on the release page, so I decide to try it - votes: 1445 (23%)
There were 6282 total votes.
The poll ended: March 22nd 2008

I can't believe how many people just come here, see a new series being released, and just choose to read it...
