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. 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, or you can email me at lambchopsil[at]gmail[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.

(This is an almost exact copy/paste from last year...)

I can imagine how painful it must be to fix all the jokes...


» aznkaze550 on March 29th, 2010, 10:12am

my least favorite day of the year.....=.=


» kawaiiairbender on March 29th, 2010, 1:01pm

it's one of my least fave too sad so glad I only have a couple classes.


» duckie04 on March 29th, 2010, 10:17am

it's bound to happen


» Ferozban on March 29th, 2010, 1:39pm

I usually like the idea of a day for jokes, but everything happening on 1st april has become far to obvious lately. it just doesnt cut it anymore.


» krytorii on March 29th, 2010, 2:28pm

Its only good if it seems like its not a joke at first. You have to be subtle.


» The_Dark_Sage on March 29th, 2010, 2:39pm

another reason to hate this day....


» Gijeumo on March 29th, 2010, 4:28pm

Agree, it's annoying and lame.

But what exactly do you mean by "severe action"? Like banning their IPs or something?


» lambchopsil on March 29th, 2010, 5:39pm

Based on how I feel at the time


» vietangelix on March 29th, 2010, 7:39pm

Déjà vu. I remember seeing this. I can't believe it was a year ago. woow.


» jijiey on March 29th, 2010, 9:17pm

lol last year and years before that xD


» Hostile on March 29th, 2010, 9:28pm

Tub Girl showed up. Please don't look that up if you don't know what that is.


» BoxBox on March 30th, 2010, 9:03pm

Oh my GOD!!! HOstile you are going to hell!!!! EWWWW!~!!! OMG


» zombiefetishlove on April 13th, 2010, 5:27pm

i gave in to the temptation.
ive found a new fetish, ahahahahaha.


» thevampirate on March 29th, 2010, 9:29pm

i wasnt a release mod last year so i dont know if there were many fakes added but i didn't see any that made it through. i hope its the same this year.


» mizunosaki on March 29th, 2010, 11:10pm

I just have to ask since you mentioned last year...

Do people still put up fake releases after this warning?


» T1 on March 31st, 2010, 5:11am

Well in my case...I kinda wanna make a fake release now....just to...well...the temptation!!!!

Though I won't and only cuz of one reason: 26x I know the pain of reading a whole chapter while going wtf and then finding out that it's april's fool at the end!

Found one last year but that was that....still I wanna know what you do when groups release fake releases? (not april's fool)
I remember reading 2 of Aerandria's releases which made me go: omg...lemme kill those people who made it.


» ichigo_daisuki on March 30th, 2010, 12:10am

This entry just answered my post in the New Poll - Death Note article.
On another note, you're right that April Fools' Day sucks for a site administrator >_<


» Carne on March 30th, 2010, 12:13am

Might as well call it fake group closure/breaking up day. Or release is actually a yaoi doujin in disguise day. I still remember hitting next page and getting an eye full of Hidan x Kazuku guro last year. >_>


» licorice on March 30th, 2010, 11:43am

I will not tolerate jokes upon myself by other members or administration.


» krytorii on March 31st, 2010, 3:08pm

Erm, this may sound stupid, and it may be troublesome due to timezones but couldnt you put a hold on all updates for that day?


» lambchopsil on March 31st, 2010, 11:45pm

Why?...We can deal with this


» Yes_Cantaloupe on April 1st, 2010, 9:31am

Oh no, "severe action"?! Sounds intimidating. If I were involved in translating stuff for free for strangers, this would send me running for the hills.


» Dr. Love on April 1st, 2010, 2:36pm

Can you read? This isn't about scanlating. This is about sending false information towards MU (which is supposed to be an information site, so it should be correct).


» Wargumm1i on April 1st, 2010, 9:18pm

Im glad that Baka-updates is going too show no tolerating towards annoying fake/joke releases, since its always ends with bad results and alot of pissed people, who are able too take jokes and arent able.


» Cerulean on April 11th, 2010, 5:52pm

why so serious? smile


» zombiefetishlove on April 13th, 2010, 5:29pm

i had a pretty wife who got into an accident.
