Since there aren't that many releases reported in the last few days, we decided to add a few things that we hope to be welcome additions to the site.

For this week only, we're going to allow reporting of all previous releases. Why? This will help build our releases database, and this will also allow the new manga fans that haven't been following manga in the past to find out about your previous works.

We are also going to open up the site a bit more by allowing all manga fans to report any releases for any particular groups. We are going to monitor how this turns out and make a decision about whether to continue this service next week.

To recap, as long as you are a manga fan and are following manga of any groups at all, you can now sign up for an account with us. Just put "manga fan of x, y groups" as your reason for signing up. Also, the reporting of previous releases is only for this week unless we specify otherwise.

Not all manga groups release thier releases on BT , sometimes they use http and sometimes they just do the traditional fserve ~.^

How long does it take to get the authentification email after you sign up? I'm just wondering because I want to help submit some groups releases before the week is up. ._.

You should recieve it right away! Its possible that it might be queued in our mail server. Try waiting a day for it.. if it doesn't come, then email us with your account name and we'll approve you manually.

Authorization happens every few hours. Most of the authorization are manually taken care of so you should be able to report any releases you want within say 3 hours of your registration even if you haven't receive a confirmation email yet. Hope this helps.
