Do new categories go through approval first or are they directly added?

S&M tag is not listing any manga....... Nana to kaoru is taged that way

they are directly added... so anyone can add anything. Tags for a series will be deleted automatically weekly if they're voted down far enough ...

Quote from BaeSooky
Last time I post here! >->
Is it possible to have a "hide" or "show" thing for the category section in the near future? Some of these categories kinda give away the plot (i.e, kidnapping, teen pregnancy, reincarnation, etc). You can't really unseen that section when it's right below the genres, so ya...XD;;

This is definitely a problem ... I haven't figured a good way to deal with this yet.

Quote from Saphyre
I'm not sure if this is just me, or the database in general, but whenever I click the "Update Series" button after adding a tag, I get a warning saying: "Error, the server seems to be down at the moment. Check your connection or please wait until the server comes back up. Sorry" with the option to press OK. However, my internet connection is perfectly fine and the tag gets added anyway. I'm not sure why it keeps popping up but hope it's fixed soon.

This happens because there are ajax requests underway when you leave the page ... I put up an error dialog that should now tell you this ...

The categories themselves really need editing. There are some redundant ones (4 and 4koma) and some of just them aren't capitalized.

Well, may be a downer but I'd suggest they go through approval first before going into a list which can be used in series kinda like genres but goes through approval faster...there's already a lot of weird categories popping up.

Seriously, epicness as a category? laugh

You can vote it down ... I'm afraid that's all we can do at the moment... The only other option is to add a dedicated "tagging" team, who would handle these types of issues...

Fixed the '4' by deleting it. Not sure what we're going to do about editing yet. Regardless of their capitalization, they will all show up together when you do a tag search. I knew this was going to be crazy to start out ... I'm hoping we reach some sort of equilibrium eventually.

That wasn't a redundant one. It was a typo made by me.

As is the "All Girls" one. So yeah, can someone delete that one too?


I submitted "change requests", but it seems it takes a while. T~T

And I'll gladly volunteer for the tagging duty~

Only 25 categories show at a time even though I change the drop down option to 100.

Any ideas there?

I don't see how that as redundant, what happens if the story is not in or around a school setting but there are still only girls in the story?

Yes, but I'm saying that the "All Girls" tag was a typo
made by me. Somehow a ' removed the "school" after it.

Also, I feel like doujinshis shouldn't be tagged again by things that the main series already contains in its tag description. Like, if the dj is about them going to the beach, then tag it only "beach".

Works for me ... you made sure to hit the "Go" button after changing to 100 right?

Never mind... I'm a retard.
The list does show 100 categories, but I just though it didn't because the drop down button shows 25 as a default despite how many are actually listed.

Now, where is that hole in the ground... Oh, there it is!! *shoo*

I've implemented a feature that lets you delete a category that you've added. It only works for categories added to series from now on ... so the 1700 or so tags that have already been added won't let you delete them (ask us to and we'll handle that). This should handle typos etc you find after you've added a tag.

Waiting for Manick to make a moderation feature that makes my job easier than going through each series individually and then changing the tag

I suggest making it so that when we add a tag to a series, we automatically vote "agree" on it.

can i tag a series with another series name so I can relate them as a recommendation? (current "recommendations" cant be edited by users or even voted)

or even better, can you replicate the tag functionality (with the voting, pretty cool) to be used in the "recommendation" section of the manga info? with some changes so it can link to the manga and a recommendation of a series would be automatically shown in both



Can the tag search be done using multiple tags? example:

Definitely not. =___=;;

Can you just imagine the clutter, lol. Second suggestion is better, but still...
The tags system isn't completely fleshed out yet, give it some months.
