can you guys add a suprise button like the one on manga reader where you press the button and a random button comes up like the Suprise button on mangareader.net. but a little bit better because you have a huge library and you can also add preferences

Why don't you just input your preferences into the search feature, then randomly choose from the provided results? SURPRISE

I think he means a feature where you push a button and a random manga is selected for you and displayed.

You could do this for yourself (although it's kinda inconvenient) by taking advantage of the fact that all series here have an ID number and the URLs to each series are simply "http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=#####" with the ID number at the end. Just pick a random number between 1 and about 80,000, type in the URL using that number, and see what you get.

Wouldn't it get annoying if you have mangas that hasn't even been scanlated popping up? There's a lot of those you know.

Do a search for whatever characteristics you want.
Check how many results were returned.
Find an internet random number generator.
Get a random number from 1 to the number of results.
Surprise!

I think they are taking about a button by which you can give vote or share your thought.

Basically a Random button that will go through all the manga that is listed and pick one to show up. Is probably what he means.

That is like the nicest and best ever way to put it, if they put this on the side bar just loaded full of weird pictures it would be hilarious to see peoples reactions when they post in the forums. Btw, it took me a few minutes to figure out what it was xD I went with some kind of chicken smile

Amazing Button, good work now let's spread the word smile jk jk xD

I actually do like this idea, but it isn't likely. It seems like it would be a bit hard to make it so that only titles that have been translated would pop up, and for there to be a way that people who know the native language could get both.

Things like this work well for reader sites and such, because most of those are already translated, but not for a database like this, which includes both.

Hey! I tried that (mashing the number buttons), and it actually worked!! Cool, cool. :3

Ah, but I saw something I don't want to see- the first one I tried, I got a shotacon.... the cover was quite explicit too. *scrubs brain* GUH dead

But, what's the point of having that sort of thing on a manga info site? Expand your knowledge of random series information.........? And if you add preference, is that even a surprise anymore?
