How do you feel when a mangaka makes different characters look/act the same between different, unrelated series?
Ruins it for me
A little confusing
Annoying or boring
Perfectly fine about it
Don't care

New Doujinshi Rules In Effect
(35 posts, 1638 views) Posted: 11d 19h, 30m ago by auriga in News
You know what? At first I was 100% behind the admins, but given how they want to restore MU's identity as a database for East Asian comics I realized that this move is actually, well... contradictory, to say the least. I understand their stance on novels, but on ...

Does this mean that if a manga title has no user reviews then no review navigation or output will be shown, making you unable to add reviews on that page? So, you really have to navigate thru the sidebar? Then, it needs to be added if that's the case.

Okay, then; let me tackle your statement piece by piece.

But isn't doujinshi by definition Fan made work that in some way modifies the original content of a series or is a story made by a artist circle not of official release

A doujinshi is anything that is self ...

The thing is you're asking for user-submitted data. If no other user submits a review, whether it be in the comments or the review section, then tough luck.

With regards to chapters per volume, users can actually request admins to add volume information to c ...

I suggest you read, reread, and understand the announcement. Only self-published works that were never available for purchase/were only posted online will be removed. Most doujinshi will be untouched. ...

I'd just like to say that there's a distinction between *release* moderators and administrators. Us release moderators are not authorized by the system to do the stuff you just described; pretty much all we can do is add/remove/edit stuff that appears ...

Adding the no. of chapters per volume or even adding the no. of pages per chapters would really be more informative and proved to be very useful.


Why would you need this?

And yes, as kaloo mentioned the comments usually already contain reviews. If you ...

So you're saying the problem is that people aren't reporting some novel translations that are less popular, therefore we should remove all novels that don't have manga?

Where exactly did I make such an illogical conclusion? Lol. I was re ...
Upcoming Policy Changes (Doujinshi and Novels)
(245 posts, 6511 views) Posted: 18d 2h, 49m ago by auriga in News
I actually already thought of that. wink

The main problem I see with allowing any sub-category (light novel or not) is that you risk creating double standards. If MU were to allow all East Asian comics to be added to the database, why would it then allow only a specific cate ...

You know what? I gave more thought about the point you raised... And I realized that even if the proposed policy was applied the same loophole would still exist. Because of Sangokushi, The Romance of the Three Kingdoms can be added to the database. Vagabon ...

It's simply a rational, unbiased statement. For you to think that my statement was mean only goes to show your biases are coloring your judgment. I know guys like you and xhenriholimar want the policy amended, but passing off exaggerations as fact or ma ...

If the problem is the novels taking to much space on the release page a filter is the best solution

It's less a space issue and more of an identity issue.

There's nothing stopping users from reporting poorly translated content. If it is proven that the translation quality is indeed subpar then the admins will surely be more than accommodating enough to strike it off the database.

The catch is, though, that burden of ...

@cclark777 and indekkusu:
I was talking about release data, not series data. What were reported to us by that user were translated chapters, not series that have not been translated at all. I know full well that we can't add untranslated series to the database ...

I'm a release moderator, and the problem isn't that there's few of us to check novel release reports. I think the bigger issue is that there aren't enough people reporting releases to us in a timely manner (in other words, as they come ou ...

I actually disagree with MU's definition of "doujinshi," but that's a story for another day. We might as well deconstruct the western term "hentai" while we're at it.

Anyways, it's easier to check doujinshi releases th ...

I know. It also says "pending comments" and "feedback is welcome." wink

I guess the point I'm making is that users can make a very strong case for LNs (regardless of adaptation) and other similar novels. Almost a hundred comments ...

Just to clarify, I actually agree with the proposed changes to doujinshi. It's just less confusing that way.

Why a specific reference to webnovels, then?

Also, as a regular reader of doujinshi I can tell you that the proposed policy changes to doujinshi are exactly the ones for novels. MU simply wants to be consistent and fair with how it handles all media. ...
