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.

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

Previous Poll Results:
Question: How do you feel about unrealistic manga?
Love it, crazier the better! - votes: 1730 (19%)
Like it, as long as it's not too over the top - votes: 4820 (52.9%)
Indifferent - votes: 1905 (20.9%)
Dislike, since it needs to be a bit more realistic - votes: 508 (5.6%)
Hate it, I enjoy reading realistic manga - votes: 150 (1.6%)
There were 9113 total votes.
The poll ended: November 7th 2014

Looks like most of us like reading about the fantastical stuff that goes above and beyond what's possible/probably in real life

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.
