I've decided to put up a FAQ. I think it is about time.

Here are some ideas that the staff and I have come up with already:

  • How do I download?
  • What is a Oneshot, Omake, etc?
  • Why doesn't the group have any info?
  • How do I get to these "channels"?
  • Why is the series info for <name of series> wrong/missing?
  • Why was my post/comment deleted?
  • How can I help out?
  • How do I get more editing privileges?
  • Why was my account upgrade request denied?
  • How do I add my scanlation group?
  • How do I add a group?
  • How do I use the manga list feature
  • What's with all the yaoi?


I'm interested in what other questions or subquestions you would be interested in seeing on the FAQ page.

I greatly appreciate your help!

if this is for the forum, i'd be interest in knowning the exact maximum size for my sig, which i still don't know right now bigrazz , so how about "What's the maximum possible size for my signature?" in the FAQ, if possible?

Definitely a question that should be answered. I kinda took the easy way out in the forum rules because I didn't feel like being specific at the time smile

Good suggestion though, although I'll probably add it to the forum rules and then link to it from the FAQ (with a "What are the forum rules" question.

*Comes out of his dungeon and whispers*
...Some of my suggestions...

Quote
*What is a Oneshot, Omake, etc?

- Manwha / Manga - difference could be explained there.

- How do I see other users Lists?

Quote
*How do I add my scanlation group?
*How do I add a group?

- Adding a release seems to be missing.

- Maybe info aobut the release filter/highlight genres
- Maybe: Can I write a review? And then how blah where to submit blah....
- Maybe an explanation about the genresearch. Which immo should be located somewhere more visible than series info. Maybe it should be there too but it maybe could be in search when you push the button.

Thats it for now.

Ah crap, that "how do i add a group" was supposed to be "how do I add a release"... haha, i must have spaced.

Thanks for the suggestions though, keep them coming smile

There is already one and it even basicly answers the how do I download question:

People just don't bother to look before asking.

I think you should add a comment that manga updates does not offer downloads. I've seen a few people posting why they can't download off the site before.

That'll be the response to "How do I download?".

Nice, this should help out all the newbies I've been linking here from the Yahoo! Answers board. cool

[Edit] Maybe have an explanation on who scanlators are (fan-group volunteers)?

It's mainly to serve as a catch-all answer to explain why certain releases are late, aren't being made anymore, why there's no "release schedule," etc. As that's just one of the common Q's I keep on answering on the Y!A board.
