My Birthday + Site News + New Poll - Redone Manga Series
Birthday!
Yup, it's my birthday today~ So happy birthday to me! Adding this kind of news about myself is just one of the perks of being an admin, haha. And yes, I turned 18, so I'm finally legal...

Site News
For site news, I have a further update on the next version of our site. Originally, we were hoping it'd be ready by BU/MU's birthday, which is July 22, but it appears we won't meet that deadline. Our future projection date as of now is around the Christmas season. It sounds pretty late, I know...

However! I just started testing (spent 2 hrs yesterday) our beta (alpha?) forum for v2 of the site! Most likely in the future we'll begin recruiting people to help with all the testing. I'll keep you guys posted.

Last of all, the t-shirts. I'm *hoping* we'll be able to push out the t-shirts before the opening of v2 of the site (which as stated before will probably be around Christmas time), but no promises. I'll have to discuss more about this with Manick

Weekly Poll
This week's poll was brought to you by l3ongl3oi. Basically, choose the type of manga that you hate the most. Lovely poll, eh? (The option of "Other" was purposely left out since too many people would probably choose it...and that wouldn't be helpful now, would it?)

Come and discuss your love/hate for this poll: http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=6574

PS: We're running out of poll ideas, so if you got any suggestions, come here: http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=3903

Previous Poll Results:
Question: Do you attend anime/manga conventions? (Like AnimeExpo, Otakon, San Diego Comic-Con, etc)
Choices:
Sure! What better way to meet fans? - votes: 1419 (18.6%)
Nah, that's lame - votes: 1759 (23.1%)
I would if there was one close to me (but there isn't) - votes: 4434 (58.3%)
There were 7612 total votes.
The poll ended: July 12th 2008

I wish more people went to conventions, but it appears most people don't really have access to one. Get some travel plans, people! Get off the computer and go outside!

ROME - Collaboration Site for Scanlators
silverado writes: ROME - Easy Team Collaboration

Link: http://rome.jcafe24.com/

Rome is a collaboration site designed to meet the requirements of scanlators and fansubbers. No matter how big or small your group is or where you live, Rome can save you a lot of time. Rome lets you schedule task assigments with deadlines, manage member accounts, create documents and milestones. It will automatically notify the member about his next task and keep him up to date with all necessary information he needs.

Your member is rarely online? No problem! As long as he checks his emails ROME will notify him important activities related to only him.

Working on long text files? No problem! You can create wiki pages for long text files. Changes made in your wiki are saved automatically in a history making it possible to roll back to previous versions.

Multiple persons work on the same text file? No problem! You can compare changes from the very first version up till the latest version. Different lines and words are automatically highlighted in different colors. You can go through long text files without difficulty and you can see whether your proofreader did a good job.

Check our demo account here: http://rome.jcafe24.com/projects/show/rome

Independence Day!
Happy 4th of July for all you US residents/citizens/whatnot! I'm currently at AnimeExpo 2008 in Los Angeles, CA (USA)! And yet I'm still dedicated for this site...
><

PS: If anyone wants to meet me at AX (I'm attending all 4 days), pm me here and leave something like a cell # so that I can locate you within the crowd of 40,000+ people

New Poll - Consoles
First, I realize I'm late (again) with the poll. Second, I'm lazy. So here's the easiest poll I could think of within 10 seconds. Just choose your favorite console! (I realize there is no choice of PC or "none". I did that for a reason)

You can discuss this poll on this thread: http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=6308
No flame wars please...

Previous Poll Results:
Question: How unrealistic/cliched do you like your manga?
Choices:
Completely realistic and none of those stupid cliches - votes: 300 (3.6%)
It has to seem real, but cliches DO happen in real life all the time! - votes: 1387 (16.9%)
I don't mind some silliness, but the story had better be original - votes: 3764 (45.7%)
Anything goes for me - votes: 2110 (25.6%)
I like my manga as wild and fantastical as possible - votes: 670 (8.1%)
There were 8231 total votes.
The poll ended: June 29th 2008

I guess most of us are expecting some kind of fantasy to happen (hey, it's manga we're talking about), but we love the original plot sequences. Not too many people like the extremes
