There is a bug in the display for the user Reading List for releases which include a volume number greater than 1.

When the system is deciding whether a title has a new release and whether it should indicate it with a red text for the most recent chapter after the title, it appears that it only looks at the chapter number.

For some series, that works just fine since the second volume will start with a chapter number one count higher than the final chapter of the first volume.

However, in some series, each new volume starts the chapter count over again from one so that, vol 1/chap 5 comes before vol 2/chap 1. However, the system just looks at the chapter number and assumes that, since you already said you looked at vol 1/chap 5, it doesn't need to tell you about vol 2/chap 1 since 1 is less than 5.

This is strange since, in addition to the chapter field in Your Start on the Readling List, there is also a value for volume number but this number seems to be ignored.

It would be great if the system could be improved so that both volume and chapter number are taken into account when checking for newer releases.

Here is some pseudo-code to solve this problem:

int statusVolume, statusChapter;
list releases(count);

for (i = 0; i < count; i++)
{
if (releases(i).volume > statusVolume) then return TRUE;
if (releases(i).volume == statusVolume AND releases(i).chapter > statusChapter) then return TRUE;
}

return FALSE;

agreed it would help if volume was also conisdered when considering new releases because some releases are added as volume 16 chapter 1 instead of just like chapter 100.....and so it doesn't show up in the list

i agree. some of my list are messed up and i have to check frequently for releases cause they are released as volumes rather than chapters.

I wanna second this. If the red text counted volume as well as chapter number, then projects like Hwang Mi Ri would work in that function.

Hwang Mi Ri and Han Yu Rang do not have chapters to split their volumes, they release it full volume. For scanlations, the groups split the volumes themselves to make it easier. For example, v02 of Money Virus would be split into 4 parts. The releases would be v02 part 1 the first release, part 2 the second, and so on. This red text function will not work since the chapters are constantly starting from 1 every volume.

Another issue is if these manwha volumes were released per volume. chapter numbers will not be necessary because they do not apply. I'm sure this is the same for a lot of other series.

There's also the problem of when scanlators skip chapters, but I can accept that can't be helped.

otherwise, including the volume number in the counting of this red text list function would solve so many problems.

This seems quite an old thread, but the problem is still there. I request to the concerned person to please do something about it.

I agree please do something about this. Some manga is scanlated by multiple groups and if suddenly one of them decide to use chapters number instead of Vol.Chap it messed up my list.

ex: Tower of God

That Ch.119 Is going to stay there forever. I don't read release from that group and never will and I bet they are doing it on purpose. mad

Another one is Angel Voice

Only one chapter released but it shows ch.10 on my list.
