We Need Your Help!
Hello fellow readers,

MU is showing it's age. After 18 years, we still have the same design and user experience from 2004. The web and the world have moved on, and we are having a difficult time pinpointing our place in today's community. We need your help to define how we can continue to meaningfully contribute, and we need developers to help us make it happen.

What features do you find useful? Which ones do you think could go? What big changes to our capabilities do you think we should make to increase the relevance of this site? Perhaps internationalization (language support), reactive web design, or social features? Please give us your thoughts!

To make this a reality, we need developers and designers who are willing to volunteer to make these changes a reality. With the API out the door, our next goal is to redo the UI using React/Next.js or similar technology. With that, we absolutely need to focus on making site moderation more user-driven. These changes are critical for us to continue to be relevant in the years to come. If you are interested in helping make that happen, please email myself and lambchopsil (manick@mangaupdates.com and lambchopsil@mangaupdates.com).

Good, many of you are not addicted to caffeine. I had a roommate go through caffeine withdrawal at the beginning of the pandemic because he always had it at work but didn't know how to make coffee at home. He eventually learned and got his fix again.

New Poll - Coffee
This week's poll was suggested by Sherryl. I'm not an expert in coffee (as I don't drink it), so I have no clue how many poll options I'm missing. I'm sure someone will tell me how wrong I am. If you are a coffee lover, some close friends of mine started a roasting company a few years ago: https://convocationcoffee.com/

I agree with a lot of people that you would first do something mundane just to test your powers.

New Poll - State of Western Live Action Adaptations
This week's poll was suggested by residentgrigo. We've recently (i.e., in the last few years) had Western adaptations of stuff like Cowboy Bebop, Alita: Battle Angel, Ghost in the Shell. Think these are a step in the right direction or just firing a miss?
