New Poll - Old vs. New Group
This week's poll from Nekomikoto is a bit wordy, but it actually happens a lot. Say you're reading a series that you like, and just one particular group is working on it. Suddenly a new group pops up and starts doing releases for the same series. Which group's releases are you going to choose now?

I feel the tendency is that the new group is the faster one, with usually less quality. So for a while I'll stick with the old group, but then the old group drops the project because they can't handle the load (and probably has other projects to work on). Then I play catch up with the new group since I'm behind a bunch of chapters now.

Previous Poll Results:

Almost 50% will watch once and skip the rest. I fall in this camp too.

New Poll - April Fools' Scanlator Jokes
This week's poll is from me (so the choices aren't really the best, but deal with it). I realized we had never done a poll about all the fake releases scanlators put out there, so might as well!

April Fools' Day Warning
In a few days is the infamous April Fools' Day (April 1st). At MU, we WILL NOT tolerate any fake/joke releases being reported/announced to us (on any day, not just April Fools). If we, by accident, allow a fake release to get through, please report the mistake to us (either via a Change Request form, through the forum, post a comment in this news post, or you can email me at lambchopsil[at]mangaupdates[dot]com if you are not a registered member here).

As you have been warned against doing it, if we discover a person still attempting to post a joke release here, that person will be dealt with. Severe action will be taken upon that scanlation group.

Thank you for considering our request to remain as accurate as possible for our members.

Some people seem to think this news post is a joke or something similar. I assure you, I am being totally serious. Don't take it lightly.

And we can figure out if someone is trying to frame a group. We're not naive, so don't even try.
