Hi, i have a feature request for the filtering options on the advanced genre search page.

What i am talking about is the last option that has these four alternatives:
* Show all manga
* Only show completely scanlated manga
* Only show completed (including oneshots) manga
* Only show one shots

I'd like that to separeted into one option containing the first three alternatives, and another for one shot status.

For example like this:

* Include uncompleted manga
* Only show completely scanlated manga
* Only show completed manga

* Include one shots
* Only show one shots
* Don't show one shots

An alternative would be to use checkboxes: (pretend [ ] looks like a checkbox will you? smile)
[ ] Only show completely scanlated manga
[ ] Only show completed manga
[ ] Exclude one shots
[ ] Only show one shots
(if anybody checked both of the two last boxes i don't know what kind of result they are hoping for, lol ^^)

Or a combination of radio boxes and checkboxes could be used, or slightly different alternatives could be used of course.

What i am proposing is twofold.
A, in addition to searching for only one shots i'd like to be able to search for anything that is not a one shot.
B, I'd like to be able to combine the one shot aspect with the completeness aspect, for example in searching for non -one shots that's completely scanlated.

(In the future i'd like to have a "length of series" option in the search which would kind of supersede the one shot option, but the system isn't ready for that kind of feature yet, is it?)

I like the concept of having One-Shots filtered out, but its a bit of work on the part of this site and they already ask for nothing doing it. But it is a good idea.
