Genres and more news on authors section
I added a little genre's page that lists all the genre's that baka-updates manga has, and you can access it by clicking on "Genres" on the menu to the right. You can search series/authors by genre's with a link and it also shows how many of each type we have in our database. (Yes Pender!! If you still visit the site, I hadn't forgotten!)

I tried cleaning up the authors section a bit. Since the section is new, there are still many errors such as duplicates and incorrect ordering of names. (Baka-Updates does family name, followed by given name). If you see a mistake, don't hesitate to join and help us correct them!

To show how the new authors system works, we have some information that was added by some users.

TANEMURA Arina by neko-bot
TAKAYA Natsuki by neko-bot
NAKAJO Hisaya by neko-bot
MIZUSHIRO Setona by Xandra Kitee
KAMIO Youko by Xandra Kitee
CLAMP by quethiril (just a picture)

Also a special thanks to all those who have added information but are not listed here. A special note that a capitalized name in the author name represents the family or surname. Some of these may be incorrect, but we will try to iron out the bugs within the coming weeks.

Great idea with the mangaka database. One question, for some reason one can't update the Birth Date of the mangakas.

Are you sure? I just went and changed some random authors birthdays, and it worked fine... Can you tell me for which author and what date?


» Unknown on June 16th, 2005, 9:47pm

I should also mention that you have to specify a year. N/A will simply invalidate any date you put in... maybe this is what was happening?

That's it! Yeah, the site I was using ( for Ribon mangaka doesn't tell me the Year so that's why I couldn't update any of the birth dates. Thanks for clarifying!

I'll try to make a work-around for this.. I never thought that people would have the month and day but not the year.

You don't have to, it's not a big deal... I did find another source that have the year, though the database is not as complete as Tails-Room. I'm guessing it's easier to find just month & date since the mangaka may not want people knowing how old they are? ^_^;; Maybe have a year "0000" or something as an option for when the year is not known? Thanks for all your hard work!

Yea, I'll definitely figure something out. Stay tuned.

Hi, working on the author database... and I'm new, so please forgive me if this question has been answered elsewhere.

What do I do when there's a manga that's listed under a group as being done by them, but I can't click on it (i.e. it's not in the database) so I can't associate it with its mangaka?


» Unknown on June 17th, 2005, 7:52am

You simply have to add that manga to the database. Go to My Releases and in My Control Panel, click Add Series.

Thank you strawberrie! ^_^


» Unknown on June 17th, 2005, 9:05am

Yup, strawberrie is right, just add the series. I saw in the log that you were really getting into it last night... lots of edits! Thanks much for the support!


» Unknown on June 17th, 2005, 7:55am

Wow! Manick, you're on a roll!! *cheers* I absolutely love all these new features in Baka-Updates; keep up the awesome work!
