I was amused by orochijes' "Time to save the Romanovs". I watched the animated Anastasia as a child.

Multiple times a day? At least 3 times. In the morning before work, during lunch, and night after work.
I still use updates on mangadex and bato, but there are some manga/manhwa I choose to read directly on the scanlators' site. So I need to check on my reading list page on mangaupdates.

Sad to hear groups aren't adding releases, but totally understandable that you'd want a break after 16 years of work. I always wonder how many people actually use this site, and how much longer it'll remain available. It's basically been my definitive source for tracking releases since I first discovered it.
Aggregate sites and apps like bato.to and Manga Rock have always come and gone, but MangaUpdates has endured over the years. It's actually really interesting and nostalgic to look through my list once in a while, find old series that finished, and to then go through the releases pages and think "oh, I remember this group and what their site looked like, I was doing X and Y in my life at the time"
I've debated doing a dump of my reading lists and all of the titles in them just so I can catalog this in case the site ever went down...
While I don't know how you add new releases, it's possible that it's something that can be automated. Perhaps this could even be a chance to implement some API standards across the scalation community 😁. Let me know if you'd like me to take a look at writing a script for you.

I had no idea you put that much work into logging releases, that's insane. Thank you for your hard work and I do hope you get to take a good long break!

Eternally grateful to all your work as always Lamb in keeping the site together, you deserve the rest- though side note I never thought to look in the User CP to add Releases myself tbh.

wow, it's crazy to know that you've dedicated so much of your life to this site, completely understandable that you would want a break. I can't believe more people don't work on updating releases to this site, I always tell people that this is the best manga/manhwa/manhua database that I know of. I love this site to pieces and would pay money to keep it running, if that's what it will take.

Yeah, take a break. It's been over a decade. I think the system for updating scanlation information is a bit obfuscated, but if more users can figure it out, I think it'd probably help
Hm, the results are more even than I thought they'd be. I figured that people who didn't come here to check releases wouldn't be here often enough to even vote

But honestly, I haven't been checking as much as before, so I'm not sure if I would notice anything different. I do come to update my reading list and check in official licence status though.

I have to admire your dedication to adding all those releases! I got tired after doing it just for 2 years, and even then, it was only for a few series. Your work here is appreciated, but you definitely need a break!

I may not do this sometimes because of too much things to do, but MU is the best place to keep up with releases. Otherwise, I wouldn't be here. 😛
I mostly use MU for tracking many series that are in Japanese only, though.
Love this website.
